Anyone who saw the recent debate between Ron DeSantis and Charlie Crist for the governor of Florida saw a microcosm of what is to come when 2024 rolls around. One of the main takeaways from the debate was that DeSantis had a laser-like focus on his ideas and policies as governor of Florida and what he wants to do for the state upon reelection.
Charlie Crist, on the other hand, had no real ideas or policies. He spent the entire debate trying to attack DeSantis and failed miserably at it. What was also telling was the amount of time Crist spent playing the blame game instead of focusing on his record and ideas.
Playing the Blame Game
The debate was a microcosm of what Americans can expect out of Democrats come 2022 and 2024. Instead of taking accountability for their actions, they would rather deflect on the other party or bring up another issue that has nothing to do with the one at present.
As DeSantis highlighted in the debate, Crist voted for Biden’s policies 100% of the time. Not 90% or 80%, but 100% of the time. Crist is a major supporter of Biden and his policies, and yet has no real defense for the negative outcomes that have beset Americans as a result of those policies.
He would rather try to attack DeSantis instead of defending his own views and policy decisions, and it was truly pathetic to see during the debate.
Inflation – A Biden Problem
Take inflation for a good example. Crist tried to pin the cause of inflation in Florida on DeSantis, but he failed to realize that inflation is a nationwide issue that was caused directly by the Federal Reserve. The same Federal Reserve that Joe Biden has the authority to replace the head of.
What does Joe Biden do instead?
He “trusts the process” of the Federal Reserve making Americans lives more difficult because of reckless spending to keep interest rates at zero percent.
What Biden doesn’t want Americans to know is that the main reason housing prices are going up is due to the fact that corporations are buying up houses left and right to then rent out. How were they able to do this you might ask? The low interest rates that were kept low for an extended period of time by the Federal Reserve.
The Federal Reserve essentially helped to flood the market with money by buying up debt to the tune of trillions of dollars. What happens when the money supply greatly increases? The inflation Americans are seeing right now and will continue to see so long as Joe Biden continues to sit back and watch the Federal Reserve raise interest rates ad nauseum.
Energy – A Biden Problem
Another part of the debate featured utility and energy prices going up in the state of Florida. What does Crist have to say about the matter? You guessed it, play the blame game on DeSantis. What Crist failed to realize yet again was that energy and utility prices are directly influenced from Washington D.C. Instead of propping up American energy, Biden and Crist would rather seek out energy from Venezuela and OPEC countries.
Why in the world would they do such a thing?
To appease the climate and environmental activists that have taken over the Democrat party of course. It is more important for them to look out for snails and ants than the American public. If this does not make the average American regardless of party angry it is hard to fathom what will.
The United States has more than enough oil and natural gas reserves to not have to rely on other countries, let alone ones with dictators such as Venezuela. Democrats don’t want to focus on that, however. They want to deflect the blame on others, with the Florida debate showing a textbook response given by them throughout the country.
What to expect moving forward
It is clear to see that Democrats only want to subvert the facts or ignore them all together, and this will be a hallmark of their strategy going into 2022 and 2024.
They know inflation is bad and is affecting the lives of millions of Americans negatively, so what they want to do is to either divert the blame or push a different narrative altogether. It has actually come up not only in the DeSantis debate but in many other debates as well.
When the topic of the economy is brought up Democrat candidates will introduce a new topic instead and somehow hope Americans can forget about their bank accounts diminishing or having to make difficult financial decisions due to higher prices.
They also recognize that introducing cultural activism in the form of critical race theory is something voters are simply not in favor of so they will try to hide how they really feel. When asked in the debate on this specific topic, what do you think Crist’s response was? He deflected to an attack on DeSantis for an unrelated issue, whereas DeSantis spoke directly about the problem.
Hispanic voters, once thought of as solidly Democrat, are now flocking to the Republican side in greater numbers. Take Florida for example, where DeSantis now has a 56% approval rating among Hispanics. These numbers were unheard of a few years ago, but like many other Americans, they are sick and tired of being lied to and led astray. T
hey want strong leadership who won’t back down when major issues arise and whose views won’t change with the wind like many from the Democrat party. Democrats thought that by having an open border they would somehow garner the Hispanic vote, but it has backfired in recent years and will continue to do so.
