You have to chuckle at this Sunshine State News article about Rick Scott’s latest approval ratings – they don’t mention until the seventh (seventh!) paragraph that he’s down to 27 percent!
Before then there’s a truly heroic attempt to spin the figure, with two – two! – Tea Party creatures quoted supporting him.
The article also talks about the “venom” directed at Scott from “across both genders and all corners of the state” and how “Left-wing activists” have “assailed Scott from day one for his budget cuts….”.
Venom? Left-wing activists? Translation: regular Florida folk are angry about what this lowlife is doing to their state.
The final word is given to Richard Johnston, a Palm Beach County-based Republican consultant: “Any place you have reform, that creates negativity as well … It’s a byproduct of leadership.”
