Wait till you find out that Trudeau spent $54 million dollars on an app! 😂
Now you care about tax payers huh? 😂

Side issue... I'm really really curious how much they spend on the CRA app.  Mostly because it's important and it works.

My assumption:

It's 100% contractors, possibly offshore too.
They pay through the nose.

Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration has so far paid more than $1.56 million to a politically connected contractor for a program to fly migrants from Texas to northeastern states.

I don't like how the $ is the primary thing reported on here, not the fact that he is harassing and kidnapping people based on the idea that they're hateable dirty foreigners that he believes his voters just HATE. 

Anybody who disagrees on the moral depravity of this please provide a parallel example of cruel showmanship from Democrats, Liberals or actual leftish political entities...

That would suggest whataboutisms actually work. It would still be immoral even if leftish political entities did it too.

I guess it's not fair because Dems don't tend to trade in cruelty ... but aren't there limits to this stuff ? 

Or are there ?

If DeSantis had had those families beaten and thrown back over the border would that be cool ?

The main difference is Republicans bask in the cruelty whereas Dems are like "sawwy, so sawwy" when they bomb/coup/imprison.

Well... Obama killed a 16-year old US citizen and nobody much cared, and the Dems didn't brag about it.

And the Repubs are sponsoring same sex marriage and nobody cares much...

So it's kind of role playing...

I love that libtards are now big fans of and defending monopolistic practices because DeSantis speaks out against it.  You guys are too f**king funny, as usual.  Just make sure to take the clown makeup off your faces before you go to bed!  😂🤡

I agree... there were so many other bigger issues (harassing, kidnapping, etc.) than just the amount wasted/stolen. However:

1) The issues of kidnapping, etc. have been discussed in many other articles. I don't think there is anything wrong with one or 2 discussing the financial mismanagement angle of his stunt

2) Consider the position of the MAGAchud... they don't care about human rights, but they DO care about money. The republicans are supposedly the party of "fiscal responsibility" and "sound business management". (At least they like to pretend that they are, even though we know they aren't)  Pointing out how they just wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars on their little stunt highlights the fact that not only do they fail at basic humanity, but they also fail at the one thing they are supposed to be good at

An interesting article about Deathsantis and his "personality"...

From: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2022/11/ron-desantis-awkward-trump-2024/672292/
Governor Ron DeSantis has a growing store of admirers.... They have heard glowing things...This has made DeSantis the GOP’s hottest molecule. He is full MAGA without the high drama.
...
People who know him better and have watched him longer are skeptical of his ability to take on the former president....He can be awkward and plodding. And Trump tends to eviscerate guys like that....“He was standoffish in general,” the Virginia Republican Barbara Comstock, a former House colleague of DeSantis’s, told me. “A strange no-eye-contact oddball,” Rick Wilson, a Republican media consultant, wrote...“I think he is going to run into some challenges,” Carlos Curbelo, a former Republican congressman from Florida who served with DeSantis in the House, told me. “It’s that question... ‘Would you want to have a beer with him?’’’ ... Will he grow on voters like a catchy song, or like mold? DeSantis “has this robotic quality that he has to shed...” “On a debate stage, all of Trump’s strengths go straight to DeSantis’s weaknesses,” Stipanovich told me. Trump has energy and presence; DeSantis “is dour and doesn’t improvise particularly well.”

Lol.  Their source is Rick Wilson, the grifter over at the Lincoln Project.  This article is meaningless.  If you want to know how Floridians feel about DeSantis, just look at the election results.  A 20 point victory.  Case closed.

You're still mad at the Lincoln Project for being disloyal to Trump?
