The irony here the Tea-party bought into Romney's categorization of Obama supporters (dems) as the people who want free stuff but in reality that is the Tea-party, they don't want to pay taxes but want all the govt programs they rely on.

Tea Party people shoot themselves in the foot all the time when it comes to government providing for the common good, especially when they demand those government hands of their Medicare.

Gyrfalcon: Cataholic: Gyrfalcon: Even if Scott can do nothing at this juncture, it would behoove him to show some consciousness of the situation.

But he's a Republican, party of passing the buck.

yes, he is totally ignoring it.

I meant acknowledge the demonstrators standing there, not ignore them like an arrogant coont.

What he does in public is at least as important as what he does in his office.

Rick Scott actively hates and looks down upon everyone who isn't a fellow Teahadist.

qorkfiend: It is simply mind-boggling that a state that voted for Obama TWICE couldn't be bothered to get off their asses long enough to elect a non-retarded Governor.


Lesson for millenials: mid-term elections are important, too.

Tyee: If you elect a Democrat or a liberal Governor who promises you everything government can provide and many things it isn't authorized to, don't be surprised when he snubs you when you ask for federal funding, because he doesn't have control of federal dollars and you're a dumbass for asking.


Tyee, you are the worst character ever.

Mikey1969: What's a"toxic algae bloom"? What is causing it?


To add to Maud Dib's explanation - the high nitrogen content of agricultural runoff from fertilizer as well as the fact that Floridians leak excessive amounts of fecal matter into the riverways through waterfront septic tanks combine to create a breeding ground for algae. When algae blooms, it coats the water with a layer of algae that looks like bright green muck. Usually, it also releases methane as the dead algae matter decays, so it also smells basically like farts around the areas where there is algae bloom.

From another article:

Scott also called on the Corps and other federal agencies to pour $1.6 billion into South Florida environmental projects - "which you owe the state," he wrote - under 50-50 cost-sharing agreements.

Scott made similar comments later Tuesday after touring a massive flood-control gate along the St. Lucie River where the Corps is releasing about three billion gallons a day from the rain-swollen lake to ease pressures on the aging, leaky dike. The dumping has lowered the lake by several inches in the past few weeks, but massive slugs of nutrients and sudden influx of fresh water have decimated rivers and estuaries on both coasts.

The Corps released a statement defending its work on the dike, which includes a recently completed $220 million project to shore up the most vulnerable 21-mile stretch of the massive earthen embankments and ongoing work to replace 32 culverts that more recent studies suggest are major weak points.

The Corps, said Jacksonville district commander Col. Alan Dodd, can only build what Congress authorizes and agrees to pay for.

"The Corps is disappointed in Governor Scott's letter," Dodd said. "However, we welcome the opportunity to better educate our partners and enhance our relationship."

So, really, blame the Tea Party Reps in Congress.

The Governor has nothing to do with the federal funding on this issue, nor has he indicated he would reject any that came.  In fact, the state has very little if any control over what happens in the lake itself.

When asked why he did not meet with the public, Governor Rick Scott told reporters he has been governor for more than two years and that water issues are important to him.

And the press corps thanked him rather than repeating the question.
