Governor-Elect Rick Scott Says The Right Things

(Via Florida Pundit) Governor-Elect Rick Scott says the right things, but one has to wonder if he means it:

Rick Scott was on Chris Wallace’s Fox News Sunday and he seem to strike the right cords. He is fully committed to the repeal of ObamaCare. Scott seems dead serious about education and immigration reform. He is almost too perfect and that is what worries me.

I will make no bones about it, I supported Bill McCollum during the primary. You can at least point to his record and say that this man is a red-blooded conservative. Yes, he was a long time elected public servent and for that high crime he was labeled a politician. We had to go and roll the dice on a political unknown that just happen to look good on paper. Other political unknowns elected governor who also looked good on paper, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse Ventura, turned out to be complete disasters. I just believe the governorship is a place for someone who has no public voting record.

Luckly enough for Rick Scott, we the people of Florida have been burned by our current governor and we were willing to roll that dice. Charlie Crist, another long-time elected public servent who turned out to be a real politician, help make the case for an outsider. The entire elected executive branch of Florida be all new, with a mix of outsiders and insiders. All of them consider very conservative.

I will give him the benefit of the doubt for now. If Rick Scott really wants me on his side, I think he should come out completely against Sunrail. Even if the Florida Legislature* rams this down our throat, at least he opposed this dumb idea. Rick Scott could balance the budget and pass immigration/education reform, but if he supports Sunrail, I will do all in my power to replace Rick Scott in four years.

*I don’t know why, but Republicans and Democrats in Florida both love high-speed rail. I don’t get it, someone explain it to me.
