Ain't the power hunger of politicians 'fun'?
Anger and Kudos as Florida Governor Tacks Left
MIAMI — A few days after Gov. Rick Scott of Florida endorsed a Medicaid expansion, a U-turn so sharply executed that it flabbergasted his supporters, the head of a local Tea Party group typed up a “breakup note.”
“I’m trying to determine how the Medicaid expansion is going to pay for the surgery to remove the knife planted in my back,” Henry Kelley, the Tea Party leader and an early supporter of Mr. Scott, wrote on his blog.
“This was his issue, his singular core issue,” Mr. Kelley said later in an interview. “This is why we rallied around him.”
It does look like Gov. Voldemort has been keeping track of the polling data and has come to realise that Florida voters ain't as right wing as he, and the Tea Party, thought they were. Poll: Rick Scott 41%, Charlie Crist 41% | Tampa Bay Times
