Another poster stated it well:
Florida was once a great State, on track to get a modern public transportation system. Up to 1999 our State was fiscally sound. Why? Florida had only had two Republican Governors since 1885. Then came Jeb Bush. His first act was bullying voters into taking back the mandate for public transportation, then he lined his buddies pockets with the disaster relief of 2004/05. After 12 years of Republican misrule our State is broke. It is safe to say that Florida is the most crooked state in the Union now. We are dealing with
- shameless disaster and public contract profiteering
- election fraud on a level only known in banana republics
- citizens have to jump through hoops to get unemployment which they paid for.
- petty-felons have to fight to get their civil rights reinstated.
- a governor who acts like a feudal overlord
- suggestive constitutional amendments to allow Scott to fire and appoint judges
- the governor's wife owns the companies that carries out mandatory drug testing
- record levels of uninsured, with Scott not accepting Federal money to help
- record levels of unemployment, homelessness, and foreclosures
- property and local taxes going up by the year while property values tank
- politicians lining their pockets (Rubio, Sansom, etc)
We can thank the GOP for the successful Jamaicanization of our State. I only hope that these people standing in line at their polling stations realize what's going on in our state and make the right decision.
Election fraud by Republicans in Florida isn't news anymore, it's a tradition.

Couldnt agree more these right bent wing nuts have gotten so accustomed to dismissing any reality that doesnt tell them what they want to hear theyve constructed an alternate universe.
They arent going to be able to do this after the election and byzantine voter fraud conspiracies arent going to be enough.
Some of them are going to crack.
Most of them aint wrapped to tight to begin with.
And who to blame this time? No ACORN, and Nathan Sproul FINALLY got outed after make millions tearing up Democrat registrations for Bush, McCain, and Romney.

I'm all ears wingnuts. Let's hear the excuse. Might as well bring it on now. No point in delaying the inevitable.

Yup.
It could be that anything and everything signed by Obama is null and void.

The country resumes its greatness, or we continue on the path of countries like Greece tomorrow.

But, they get away with it without consequences. In this case I tend to agree with Carol; get your vote in on time to avoid these issues, because we know the Republicans will use any opportunity to suppress the voters; they know they are Democrats.
Yup. If you vote early, you can still vote in your home state on election day.

Hi Carol! Why, it would seem the bigger the government gets, the more poverty there is.

I'm guessing Joe Scarborough didn't get that memo; he's saying Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi, over and over again like the Rainman this morning. Why? He doesn't want to talk about voter suppression in Florida. Classidc deflection. Retardican style.
Have you seen the lines in Florida?

It's like the voters are saying: screw you Rick, we're voting anyway.

The least popular politician in American can expect no less. Looks to be the same in Wisconsin. Fascism seems to be causing a backlash.

Hate to burst your little bubble of denial again.
Income groups in America are not fixed. There's no caste system here, really no such thing even as a middle "class." The poor aren't stuck in poverty. And the rich don't enjoy lifetime membership in an exclusive club.
A 2007 Treasury Department study bears this out. Nearly 58% of U.S. households in the lowest-income quintile in 1996 moved to a higher level by 2005. The reverse also held true. Of those households that were in the top 1% in income in 1996, more than 57% dropped to a lower-income group by 2005.
Every day in America, the poor join the ranks of the rich, and the rich fall out of comfort.

It's about hard work and seizing opportunities.
But the opportunities have to be available. Obama wants the 1%(a ghost percentage) to take care of everybody.
The 1% can just as easily pack up and call it quits if pushed too far. Ever think of that?
There goes Homer's and your version of a better off middle class.
Carol, if they admitted that, they'd have to own that thing called personal responsibility. They want the government to do it all for them, much easier and less work.

Sorry, guys: polls show overwhelming approval for Mr. Obama’s handling of the storm, and a significant rise in his overall favorability ratings.

And he deserves the bump. For the response to Sandy, like the success of the auto bailout, is a demonstration that Mr. Obama’s philosophy of government — which holds that the government can and should provide crucial aid in times of crisis — works. And conversely, the contrast between Sandy and Katrina demonstrates that leaders who hold government in contempt cannot provide that aid when it is needed.

The same graph chart that shows union decline matches the same chart that shows middle class decline.

The Rich will bring back jobs to America when the American workers agree to the same as China..30 cents/hr, 16 hour days. no overtime, no health, no safety, no retirement, no chance of moving up.
Nonsense. Unions are organized crime extortion ring and have killed off every industry they infected.

Public employee unions are a dire threat to America and must be destroyed like in WI and In.

This is what gets the religious nuts to the polls:

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) used some of the precious remaining hours of the 2012 campaign to reach out to social conservative voters in a town hall-style call on Sunday night, warning that "Judeo-Christian" values were at risk if President Barack Obama is reelected.

The Romney campaign also currently has a robocall that warns Christians that Obama is a "threat to our religious freedom."

Ryan is considered more conservative on social issues than Romney. For example, while Romney believes abortion access should be legal in cases of rape and incest, Ryan does not

Flight records missing for week of Obama's birth
Friday, March 23, 2012
Times247 ^| 3/23/12 | Jerome R. Corsi
After months of searching, investigators commissioned by Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio to examine Barack Obama’s eligibility for office found Immigration and Naturalization Service travel records for foreign flights into Hawaii in 1961, only to discover that records for the week of Obama’s birth were missing. Investigators were searching to determine if Barack Obama might have been born in a foreign country and returned to Honolulu in or around August 1961 with his mother, Ann Dunham
How very, very strange. Hmmmmm....must just be a co-inky-dink, huh?(LOL)
