Letters to the Editor — March 9, 2023


The problem: The Post’s editorial claiming that Governor Ron DeSantis is a better choice for 2024 than Donald Trump.

Your editorial did well (“Look to the Future, GOP,” March 6).

I have told my husband that if former President Donald Trump is the nominee, he will lose. Too many Republicans don’t want him. I’ve heard people say, “I’m not going to vote.” You’ve sorted it all out.

What baffles us is how anyone can vote for President Biden (if he survives to run). What kind of country have we become? Is this what we want for our children and grandchildren? Is this the best we’ve got?

One candidate with a major personality flaw, the other with a major intellectual disability. I pray for a turnaround.

Trump’s big show on Gov. Ron DeSantis in the straw poll at CPAC (62-20) portends a big fight for any GOP presidential hopeful determined to dethrone the MAGA king.

In my opinion, the only way to knock the Great Disruptor out of the picture is for some of his rivals to step fearlessly on what appears to be the third rail of this Republican presidential primary — namely, to hold him accountable for encouraging the disruption. of the peaceful transfer of power on January 6.

Trump can build on all his impressive achievements at home and abroad, but he can’t run away from trying to take a page out of Mussolini’s playbook.

DeSantis is getting a lot of media attention right now, and yes, he’s done some good things for his home state. But the red bank is pretty deep when you look past the supposed top two.

Vivek Ramaswamy is someone to be seriously looked at. He’s younger than DeSantis and, frankly, more “worldly.” Vivek understands the “kids” and most likely could speak their language.

I will support whoever gets nominated because four more years of Biden will most likely end this country.

While there is much to love and admire about DeSantis — so much so that I look forward to having him as my future governor when I emerge from this corrupt, crime-ridden cesspool and vote for him for president in 2028 — I still believe that Trump is the right choice for the 2024 election.

With all the fake scandals designed to hurt his presidency even before his inauguration (and despite a wildly successful presidency), we’ve never seen what he could have accomplished had he not had to defend himself. /7.

The problem: Jill Biden’s claim that it is “ridiculous” to mandate mental testing for politicians over 75.

First Lady Jill Biden says Sleepy Joe would never consider taking a mental competency test (“Jill: No mental test for Joe,” March 6).

Good move, Jill. It is certain that he would fail. She brags, “Look at the man. Look what he’s doing.” That’s the problem for President Biden. We watch and what we see is frightening.

The man can’t even read the teleprompter, walk up a flight of stairs, or remember where he is.

The thought of six more years of his America-last agenda is truly scary.

So Jill Biden doesn’t believe in testing the mental acuity of candidates.

As Shakespeare says, “The lady protests too much.”

I guess she realizes Joe could never pass one, which is why she’s against it.

Her opposition to it is all the more reason to test Biden.
