People are starting to say what Palmer Report has been saying for years. Ron DeSantis is overrated. The Floridian Governor did win reelection, and I wasn’t happy about that. But there can be no doubt that the whiny-voiced DeSantis wants to take his act nationally. It won’t work. And some are finally starting to agree.

The Atlantic’s Mark Leibovich has an article out where he cautions against the starry-eyed Republicans putting Ron on a pedestal. “People who haven’t met him think he’s a hot commodity. People who have met him aren’t so sure.”

Here are some other comments made about Desantis:

“a strange no-eye contact oddball.”

“Standoffish.”

And my favorite:

“I’d rather have teeth pulled without anesthetic than be on a boat with Ron Desantis.”

That’s telling it like it is. The bottom line is there have been rumors for YEARS about how DeSantis isn’t a people person, and that’s putting it mildly. I’ve been around such people. They may have many good qualities. Being a leader is not one of them.

That’s because leaders have to like dealing with people. And judging by the sound of it, Ron really doesn’t. Like people, that is. He comes off as morose and solitary, lacking virtually any sense of humor. And this article certainly doesn’t put those doubts to bed.



I cannot imagine DeSantis whooping it up in Iowa at the local farm or fair. I cannot see him at a quaint community town hall in New Hampshire. I shudder to imagine him in low-income areas, interacting with minorities or answering the questions of Generation Z. That is because Ron DeSantis just doesn’t have it. You know “it.”


“It” is that elusive quality that many politicians and Presidents have. What DeSantis has is the opposite of “it.” It is virtually impossible to imagine the country embracing DeSantis outside of Florida. But like other candidates before him, Ron just might be the last to find that out.
