Wasserman Schultz Lines Her Allies Up Against Gov. Rick Scott

By Javier Manjarres

debbie Miami ChamberCongresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s close friend Allison Tant has been elected  Chairwoman of the Florida Democratic Party, defeating her openly gay opponent State Committeeman Alan Clendenin.  Initially it appeared as if Clendenin might pull off the upset, but all the right handshakes and deals were struck to ensure Tant would win- textbook intra-party politics. 

Subsequent to Tant’s victory, Wasserman Schultz issued the following statement-

“Our leadership is comprised of dedicated Florida Democrats who will build on our victories in 2012 and help take the Florida Democratic Party to the next level,” adding, “United, the Florida Democratic Party has both the grassroots engagement and the resources needed to move Florida forward.”

Wasserman Schultz is now focused on ousting Republican Governor Rick Scott in 2014.  While Governor Scott’s approval ratings are anything but stellar, the jobs numbers are up and Florida’s economy is on the upswing.  Scott campaigned on getting Floridians back to work and the Governor does have an impressive record on jobs and regulatory reform that has helped Florida’s unemployment rate steadily decline since taking office in 2010.

    Wasserman Schultz is a bantamweight in the world of political fisticuffs. Intellectually and pragmatically she is really just lighter than air and outside of her own district would pose no threat to anybody.

    Governor Rick Scott has done a good, no a great, job in rescuing Florida from the low employment caused by Obama. Next year the full effect of ObamaCare kicks in. It will have yet more taxes and Rick Scott’s clean, efficient government will be looking good. Debbie? Not so good.

    Anything DWS is for, I am against. I cannot stand someone who can tell a bald-faced lie with a straight face. The sight of that woman makes me want to puke and it has nothing to do with her physical appearance. This woman is a nut job.

    Incidentally, does everyone realize that this Gov does not take a salary and flies around in his own plane on his own dime? He’s done a great job so far for ALL Floridians.

    Rick Scott has been generally loyal to his Tea Party supporters.

    NOW HE MUST MOVE AGGRESSIVELY TO PUT HISPANICS IN HIS CORNER.

    HE CAN’T DO THAT WITHOUT HIS RECALCITRANT GRASSROOTS SUPPORTERS WORKING OVERTTIME TO ENGAGE WITH HISPANICS…

    WHICH DOES NOT SEEM TO BE IN THEIR DNA.
