Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is no dummy. He knows that bringing on Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. as his running mate would be like adding a vegan to a steakhouse menu – out of place and completely unnecessary. Sure, Kennedy might be winning in the favorability ratings, but let’s not forget that this isn’t a popularity contest. It’s about delivering on conservative promises and fighting for the values our supporters hold dear.
While DeSantis appreciates Kennedy’s shared views on the corruption in health bureaucracies and his skepticism of Dr. Fauci, he can’t ignore the fact that Kennedy is still a Democrat. And we all know what that means – open borders, higher taxes, and crazy climate change policies! Kennedy once suggested that climate change deniers should go to jail, for crying out loud! Can you imagine? Thankfully, DeSantis has more sense than that.
In case you needed more evidence of Kennedy’s extreme views, just look at his desire to give corporations the death penalty for sponsoring climate lies. The man is clearly unhinged and completely out of touch with reality. And let’s not forget his obsession with prosecuting the Koch brothers. It’s sad to see someone so consumed by hate and bitterness.
DeSantis also highlighted Kennedy’s stance on affirmative action, which shows just how out of step he is with mainstream conservatives. While many Americans believe in a level playing field and a merit-based society, Kennedy seems to think that race-based policies are the solution to our country’s problems. Sorry, but that’s just not how we roll.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Is there anything Kennedy and DeSantis agree on? Well, DeSantis did mention that Kennedy could be useful in certain areas. Maybe he could take on the FDA or the CDC. But let’s not get carried away here. We have to remember that there are still 70 percent of issues where Kennedy would be completely out of step with our conservative base.

All in all, it’s clear that DeSantis made the right call in dismissing the idea of bringing Kennedy on board. We need a strong, conservative leader who will fight for our values and uphold the principles that make this country great. Kennedy might be popular in some circles, but popularity doesn’t equal leadership. And that’s what we need in the White House.
