I was invested in many issues this election but by far the worst win was Rick Scott (aka Mr. Crazy Eyes) as Governor. I fault Republicans for lack of brains.
I don't like Marco Rubio and I didn't like Bill McCollum but at the very least they were credible candidates.
Rick Scott is/was not a credible candidate. They say money can't buy you love but it can surely buy you a Republican election. Democrats had a rich guy short on ethics like Scott, Jeff Greene, but Democrats sent him packing in the primary. Republicans should have done the same to Scott - I fault them for not doing this. McCollum for all his faults, would have made a better Governor.
Florida is F--ked because of this election. The legislature is overwhelming Republican and now we have a man to-the-right-of-right who is also woefully short on principles or integrity as our Governor. He slashed and burned at his hospitals and he will do the same to the State. My sister, who worked at one of Scott's hospitals, said last night all the nurses she works with are Republicans but they all didn't support Scott. She said they all knew what he did in the medical arena. The strangest part, people don't even like him. Scott, in recent polls was receiving a 54 percent negative approval rating, while only 34 percent have a favorable opinion of him. Republicans didn't like him but they voted for him anyway. They chose to cast a blind eye at the 1.7 billion dollar fine his hospital empire had to pay.
What has happened that we throw basic contract law out the window (in foreclosure litigation) for expedience and then we elect a charlatan governor. What have we become?
