Gov. Rick Scott came into office on a conservative wave, promising to change Tallahassee, fight President Barack Obama's health care overhaul and make Florida as business friendly as he could.

He shunned the press, announced his first budget at a tea party rally in a Central Florida church and entered his first legislative session like the powerful CEO he was before spending more than $70 million of his own money to win office in 2010.

What a difference two years can make.

Scott is preparing to give his third State of the State address Tuesday, and while the major theme — jobs — will still be the same, Scott has undergone a transformation. He's cozying up to teachers instead of antagonizing them. He's learned the art of compromise with the Legislature. He's even cooperating with the federal government to put the president's health care plan into place.

"He's really the Benedict Arnold of the tea party/patriot movement in Florida. Most conservatives feel betrayed by him and members have been calling me and saying they want him fired," said Everett Wilkinson of the South Florida Tea Party, who once called Scott a rock star. "He's flip-flopped on such major areas. It shows how a man can be corrupted with D.C. and Tallahassee."

The final Gallup poll before the election had Obama leading 49% to 46%. Romney had a slight lead until Christie kissed Obama in public.
The entire week after the hurricane, Obama took front and center stage looking very presidential. Romney virtually disappeared from view during that same week. Right before the election.

Why I say Obama is the luckiest man alive.

Didn't help that Christie kissed him either.

It's the mentality of "victimization". Democrats feed on it and encourage it. Then get reelected to do the same.

Obama is the worst economic President ever. No President since Roosevelt has presided over such a dismal growth and unemployment rate. 2M+ jobs lost and this man is preaching gun control and immigration. It is obvious this man doesn't give a crap about the economy.

Now the sequester comes along although both sides knew about it over a year ago and we have another crisis. And both sides are to blame for any outcomes not positive although the media will make sure the spin is against the conservatives.

Both parties represent the special interests, getting fat off of perks and becoming millionaires many times over while in office. And we foolish Americans keep electing them. We have created this situation.

You may say Obama isn't like that. Actions speak louder than words and Obama's actions are every bit special interest and letting the rich court him. He talks a good game and may of you have bought this crap. I can appreciate voting for "anyone other than Bush" in 2008. What I can't understand is how this failure got re-elected.

Shame on us for we deserve the hate our children and grandchildren will have for us for our poor stewardship.

According to the American Diabetes Association, "you inherit a predisposition to the disease then something in your environment triggers it."

If I lost just 10 pounds, maybe 15, I would no longer have to take the medication. Did it once a while back. Doesn't seem fair but that's the way it is.

This is what waxturd does all day to insure that every right wing post is covered with positive judge-its and every progressive post is covered with negative judge-its. He explained it himself in this recent post:

Fruits, nuts and flakes pretty much describes three-fourths of the population in California. I think it's the sun. Like California raisins. Dried up grapes.

So Illinois, what has this President done for you?

Illinois unemployment is higher than when he took office. The most recent information shows that Illinois residents getting food stamps is approaching 1M households and about twice that amount of people getting fed by the government.

Illinois state debt is the fourth highest in the nation, with each state resident owing $21K+. The credit/bond rating for the state is 49th.

And Illinois residents keep electing the same party to office?

He wasn't the perfect candidate but, by all logic and in a sane world, Romney would be sitting in the White House right now.

Then again, I'm still holding on to that silver lining. If things really do have to get a lot worse before they can get better, it just might stop all these nonsense.

Shame on us, indeed. For electing him once. Much less twice.

It's the people, not the elected, who are to blame.

The vote was 70/30 (close) in favor of the war, and included “yes” votes from Senate Democrats such as Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, John Edwards, Chris Dodd, and Harry Reid. While the liberals claim that it was Bush who solely brought us into the war, they dodge the simple fact that authorization could have easily been denied!
The Democrats held a majority of 51-49 in the Senate, and could have simply blocked the vote. However, they stood with President Bush and overwhelmingly supported the war 3-1. If liberals are so anti-War, how come they never share blame for starting the Iraq War?
BITE ME!

The rumors we hear about republicans are as true as the ones we hear about you..

When posting on Topix, there is a fine line between "what's on your mind AllArnerican1" and "You should probably see a therapist about this?"
