Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

I'm not familiar with Buddy Dyer, but look forward to a Democratic governor for Florida next time, hope he's dynamic, Alex Sink was a little dull. Didn't read about that Jindal vouncher story, but, that's good news. The public school system in Lousiana is a sad story. Friends who used to live there say that everyone sends their children to private schools. The public schools are only for the poorest of the poor. It's not right.
Not sure about dynamic but he's slippery and likeable enough to govern this state with a positive result.

He delivered the Orlando electorate to his pal Da Bammy while Rubio and the other TeaParty mutts delivered diddly squat!

Jindal is a disciple of Jeb Bush's "education as an industry" plan. That concept might eventually work__particularly in Shitsville USA, but it's way too early IMO.

Obama sent Geithner to deliver his decree - I mean, plan - and then took off again somewhere.
Point to any president in history who, in a time of crisis, didn't sit down with the opposition to negotiate a deal that would be acceptable to both sides.
You won't find one. This is the only one. He always has more important things to do.
He met w/ GOP leaders 10 days ago, you moron.
The GOP has no interest in what's best for the country.

I don't trust Jeb Bush for a minute with education funds. It's a way to steal; too many of these alternative schools, etc. have just closed, up and left the students high and dry. It's an opportunity for people to go into the private school business, but where is the oversight? Many of these schools sell a dream and charge huge tuitions and then the parents find out that they are not even accredited. Seems shady to me.

Poll of 2014 Democratic primary: Charlie Crist 61%, Alex Sink 25%

The first Florida-based poll conducted since the close of the Democratic National Convention shows former governor Charlie Crist lapping the prospective field of Democratic candidates eyeing the 2014 gubernatorial race.

Crist is the top choice of 61% of likely Democratic voters, followed by former Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink with 25% support. Orlando mayor Buddy Dyer comes in at 7%, state Senator Nan Rich at 3.5% and Florida Democratic Party chair Rod Smith at 3.4%.

This is interesting; Charlie Crist, 61%!

Deal or No Deal

NRís editors have a pretty pessimistic take on the fiscal-cliff talks. If no deal emerges, then Republicans have two options. The high-risk one is to pass an extension of all the tax cuts, watch Senate Democrats block it, watch tax rates rise for everyone, and try to blame Obama and the Democrats for this result. The low-risk one is to pass an extension of the middle-class tax cuts, which presumably the Democrats would have to pass, and watch taxes for high earners rise. That way at least Republicans wouldnít get blamed for middle-class tax increases.

That second option isnít great. But itís better than some of the possible deals Iíve been reading and hearing about.

Agree, we just had another charter school go bust up here__principal and husband collected a million buck$ in less than 4 years before abandoning the place.

OHHHHHH, NO, YOU'RE NOT GETTING OFF THAT EASY. WHAT YOU'RE ARGUING IS THAT IF ONE "STRUGGLES" HARD ENOUGH YOU GET A CAVE FROM THE LIMITED SUPPLY AVAILABLE. THE CURRENCY IN YOUR HYPOTHESIS IS THE STRUGGLE. THE VERY ACT OF "STRUGGLING" IS WHAT YOU WISH TO BE REWARDED FOR. NOT ONLY THAT BUT YOU DEMAND THAT NON-STRUGGLERS BE PUNISHED BY - IN THIS CASE - NOT GETTING A CAVE. YOU DON'T NEED TO EAT MEAT AT ALL, IT'S NOT NECESSARY SO THAT'S NO ARGUMENT AND I'M NOT SURE WHAT PLANET YOU LIVE ON BUT "SCREWING YOUR SIBLINGS" IN NOT A PROBLEM IN NATURE NOR IT IS POPULAR EXCEPT IN RURAL AMERICA; FOR ONE THING THERE IS SUCH A WEALTH OF WOMEN WITHOUT CAVES OUT THERE. SO THAT MEANS YOUR ENTIRE ARGUMENT FOR YOUR BELOVED CIVILIZATION IS NO MORE THAN AN ISSUE OF THE AVAILABILITY OF REAL ESTATE. ARE WE SURE THAT'S THE POSITION YOU WANT TO TAKE BEFORE I FUCK YOU UP THE ASS LIKE THE WHINEY LITTLE BABY YOU IS?

Crist has the clout of John Morgan behind him__Alex Sink has the clout of Holland and Knight but Buddy Dyer is a very likable, very slippery, Clintonesque giterdone kinda guy who "wins." And he once beat the sht out of an ornery pit bull__no foolin.

"IT'S ALL ABOUT THE STRUGGLE." YES, I SEE. YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT IT IS THE "STRUGGLING" THAT IS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS AND THE TRUE DETERMINANT OF THE HUMAN HIERARCHY. IT DOESN'T REALLY EVEN MATTER WHAT YOU'RE STRUGGLING AGAINST OR FOR AS LONG AS YOU'RE STRUGGLING AGAINST OR FOR SOMETHING. FASCINATING. SO HERE'S A QUESTION, AT WHAT POINT WOULD YOU NOT NEED TO STRUGGLE ANYMORE? IS THERE A TIME YOU CAN ENVISION WHEN STRUGGLE IS NO LONGER A NECESSARY COMPONENT? I'M LEARNING A GREAT DEAL IN THIS, PLEASE TELL ME MORE.

I just realized that poll was from before the election, although Charlie was there at the both rallies I went to, in Delray and Sunrise. I don't mind Charlie Crist; I take it you don't? I'd like to see someone new, like this Buddy Dyer guy. I wish we'd have someone with a personality, this Rick Scott is like a mortician.
Re the charter schools, yes, we have had a number of them go under here too. It might seem that is the plan, a way to siphon off the public funds. If you want to send your kid to private or parochial schools, then pay for it yourself. I did.

Jeb is behind FL virtual school, which is privately run, but gets public $$. The academic results are terrible. 250 students to one teacher. The investors are hauling in $6500 per student.
