DeSantis Slams GOP Over ‘Failure Theater,’ ‘Virtue Signaling’: ‘Voters Are Really Getting Sick Of It’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis went scorched earth on the Republican Party during a press conference on Wednesday following a string of failures the party has suffered at the national-level.

    Some of the setbacks that Republicans have faced this week include their failure to pass a standalone bill in the House, where they are the majority, to support Israel, and their failure to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

    The setbacks come after some Republicans in the Senate worked with Democrats to create a controversial bill to address President Joe Biden's border crisis that critics, including DeSantis, have said will make the situation worse.


    "[Republicans] have given Biden an opportunity to say, 'Hey, [I] wanted to do something, and these Republicans stopped it,'" DeSantis said. "So it's kind of like Lucy with the football. We always expect these guys to actually get something done and they never do. Look at the House. I mean, we added four Republicans just from Florida in the 2022 election. Have they done anything to stop any of the problems with this government using the power of the purse? No, they haven't done anything. You look at the Republican National Committee, it's almost bankrupt. The chairman's going to likely quit. These guys are like the keystone cops, and I just think a lot of voters are really getting sick of it. I see a lot of failure theater, I see a lot of virtue signaling, but I don't see a lot of actual results."

    DeSantis then contrasted some of the chaos at the national level with how Republicans govern in the state of Florida.


    "And I think Florida, we're much different than that because we believe in speaking softly and let our actions speak louder than our words," he said. "And so yes, we go out, we make the case, we'll lay down the marker, but that's always followed with action and actually producing results. And that's what this is all about. And I look at the failures that happen in Washington over and over again and you just think about it and you just shake your head. So, all I can say is, I'm glad we're hunkered down here in Florida because we'll make sure we get it done."
