I'd love election season much more if this kind of cognitive dissonance only came from my relatives - and not political leaders.

Well if Scott hadn't nixed the high speed rail that everyone voted for, we'd have 30,000 new jobs.

Rick Scott is a coont. They didn't even invite him to speak at the convention. The one in Tampa. Florida.

Actually I think he is, but I'm not sure, I'm mostly planning on ignoring all that. Last thing this area needs is 50,000 more Republicans wandering around. And yes, I'm pissed about the high-speed rail too, as I have a lot of experience doing environmental work on the I-4 corridor and figured I could hook something up. But hey! He sure showed that Obama how to turn away money and give it other states! That'll teach those feds!

He's the worst Florida governor in my lifetime. People talk about Claude Kirk but I think Rick Scott will be always remembered as failing harder.

Glass half empty, glass half full. They both have to run for office, one is saying it should be better, one is saying it could be worse.

They didn't invite a LOT of people. Kind of makes you wonder who is actually speaking at the convention.

No, seriously. I understand that Fark is safety-wired to the Obama position, and truthfully I voted for Obama and will do so again in November, but not every little thing that Romney says or does is worthy of comment. If Obama said he did more for civil rights than anybody since LBJ (which he has) but someone remarked on Guantanamo Bay and said that he was one of the worst Presidents on civil rights (which he is), would that merit a Fark thread? They're two different things that prove correct in two different cases. Same same here.

Exact. The civil rights issue isn't being spun in different directions by two Democrats. Nor is it the centerpiece of Obama's campaign, the way unemployment is with Romney.

Well sure, Scott wants re-election (not gonna happen unless the Democrats run a child molester or something) and Romney wants to be President of the USA. If I was Scott, I'd just probably shut up and hope for a cushy federal job that he can despise on his moral high ground.

How do people know if they agree with him when he never says what kind of policies he supports or what he'd actually do as president? It's like something from Plato where you have all these people looking at shadows on the wall thinking they're real.

That's sort of what I was alluding to. But I think that sometimes the "internet" says one thing, but "we" say another. There's plenty of people out there putting things out there to gain favor from the public and they realize that politicians are doing the same thing.

He'd support the policies that will make him popular with the people that voted for him. This would cause his approval ratings to slowly mellow from a high point down to an asymptotic range of about ±8% that they'd never escape from. At that point he'd seek re-election, which he'd either receive or not receive depending on many factors he really never could control. Either way the Party will decide who else is going to run for office eight years from now.

No, the real issue is that we have 8.6% unemployment. The Republican stance is always that this is a terrible thing when it's mentioned in a context with Obama--and now it's somehow a good thing because its mentioned in a context with a Republican (or whatever Scott actually is). So is 8.6% unemployment unacceptable or not? Unemployment is trending down--is that bad because it should be faster (Obama) or good because it's headed in the right direction (Scott)?

The unalterable fact is that unemployment is at 8.6%. That can only be a good thing or a bad thing; it shouldn't depend on who you're crediting it to.

When you're all those guys from Bush's war cabinet who manufactured the Iraq war, you don't have to know if you agree with him or not... you simply join his campaign as a foreign policy adviser, and then you wage war against Iran after he's elected. LOL, Romney who?

He tried to close Gitmo, Repubs made hay all over the media about terrorists being found Not Guilty if brought to and tried in the US and then being able to wander the US with impunity.

I dunno, I think he's going to have to dissolve a school board or two and set up camp in a local high school to stop integration before he reaches Claude Kirk levels of awful.

The sooner the alligators, pythons, cougars, and piranha start devouring the population of Florida, the better. After those predators then starve to death we can repopulate the state and hopefully keep it from going insane again.

I love the "he didn't close Gitmo" talking point.

'Obama is so naive, he wants to close Gitmo! If he closes Gitmo, we'll have terrorists wandering free on American soil, blowing up haystacks in the heartland! The GOP is opposed to closing Gitmo, and we'll do everything possible to prevent Obama from closing Gitmo!
HA HA! Obama didn't close Gitmo!'

What you're forgetting is that we are Republicans and Democrats first and Americans second. Therefore, it absolutely matters who is in charge and who is responsible.

I have some friends and an ex in Florida, and they follow Scott more closely than I do. Farking no one likes the guy. He's even pissing off lifelong Republicans.

Thing is, it's not that he's being incompetent. The things he's farking up aren't failures or mistakes. He's just doing mostly what he farking told he was going to do. You idiots knew, or should have known, what you were voting for. Well, now you have it. Reality isn't so pretty when it's real and not wrapped in a flag, is it?

Rick Scott is proof that otherwise reasonable people will line up to have their own dicks cut off if you frame the proposition the right way. "Step right up! Have your dick cut off for Freedom!"

His approval rate is somewhere around 30% and appears to be trending for the worse. Maybe Florida can un-f*ck itself.

I don't like the term "talking point" when it comes to what these mouth-breathing morons constantly regurgitate. It is an insult to the very idea of talking. These people are a farking cancer on America, the result of poor education, thanks to right wingers who have made war on education for decades.

Single rural moms and the meth-heads who made them that way. Obama was right, they cling to their guns and their bibles. Neither will save them as they allow the Chicom to swallow us because they keep us gridlocked in the name of policies that will never benefit them.
