Never heard of him but if he has Tea Party roots, I'm inclined to believe he's a good choice.

Scott is our next scumbag in chief for the state of floriduh, who ripped the taxpayers off for millions as CEO of Columbia hospital but claimed, he didn't know what happened. When questioned under oath, took the 5th, 75 times. Spent $75 million of his own money to buy his governorship. Perfect teabagger.

Duh !

Typical Lefty-Lib. Scott is a new S. Carolina GOP CongressCritter . He is one of those minorities the Tea Party supposedly hates. He is a black man.

Also in S.C. the Tea Party elected another minority it's supposed to hate. Nikki Haley is an ethnic Asian-Indian.

Adam Kinzinger is Congressman in the 11th district, Illinois. He is smart, savvy(won his first political office while he was still in College), been to Iraq twice, and Aghanistan once, as an Air Force Officer. He will be re elected in 2012, Why? Because he said if I don't listen to you, my constituents, vote me out in the next election. He won't be bulldozed by a bunch of old white losers. There is a new kid in town!!! He is very Conservative.

South Carolina? My apologies to all, I saw SCOTT and immediately thought of RICK our next governor. Being from Fl. I ASSumed and made an ass of myself. Thanks X, for setting me straight. I will not let the same happen in the future.

You mean there are black "tea Party" politicians?
The NAACP and the democrats kept telling us the Tea Party is Racist.

Is it too much to ask for a liberal to Read the Caption of Scott being a Congressman?

Congressman Scott is Not your governor of Florida.

OK Crying. Glad you can admit when you made a mistake. Rick Scott is Our Governor and we'll see if he's up for the Job or not.

Funny to see Crist out of a Job soon because he was too greedy. Not surprised he tried to change parties when contacting Obama. Talk about burning all your bridges behind you!

Yes, the Tea Buscuits back one or two token deranged black persons. Maybe this party of nitwits even includes an openly gay person. This of course must mean that the Teabaggers are now in favor of a level playing field for everyone. That being the case, one wonders why they haven't joined up with us Liberals.

The Taxed Enough Already people are everyday people who work, raise their children, love their country, and see what a handful of Liberals want to do to it. They are already working to add members, to make sure they elect more conservatives in 2012. We have a wonderful political system, and we won't let either political party bastardize it.

If you mean Affirmative Action by income based criteria and not race based the answer is yes.I'll wait for you Libbies to agree.
The TP passed a law in Az. " No gov't preferences in hiring based on race , gender , ethnicity etc". Such as minorities getting a 7% cushion on contract bidding ( leveling the field).

I like the way you Lefty-Libs knock any black who wonders off the Plantation (deranged blacks).
You know what I meam...like NPR did to Juan Williams. Plus the past attacks on Clarence Thomas for wondering off the Plantation.

First of all, the 11th is a swing district that elected a Democrat just two years ago. No telling what the mood of the voters will be two years hence.

Secondly, if he's very conservative, he might put conservative principles where his mouth is and limit himself to 2 or 3 terms.(Do 3 if you can Adam, the pension & health care kick in after the third term...) If he stays long enough to get seniority & rise to leadership, he'll be just another Washington DC insider, and teabaggers hate that.

Finally, don't count your chickens on reelection until we see how Congressional districts are redrawn after the Democratic Legislature and Governor redo the new map. I would expect Peter Roskam to get consideration, not so much the 4 or 3 Republican newbies...
