For those who don't know, Florida's has been the staunches opponents fighting against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare. Which was led by the former AG Bill McCollum, and then pick up by the current AG Pam Bondi as well as Gov. Scott. For those who did'nt see this YouTube video posted on the Tampa Bay Times "buzz" page. You pretty much see them start getting giddy especially Bondi with Scott calling a 5 minute recess rushing thru the door. Then eventually finding out what happened. Then later giving there sore loser response, which I'm not even going waste my time putting up. You can find that on YouTube yourself. I loved seeing the right wing fuming mad from what happend Thursday just being sore losers cause they thought they had the 5 votes in their palm like they did with the other decisions that went their way. Then get upset when one of their very own did a okie doke on them. Make you question do they have a heart seeing that 30 million people would had went uninsured, and they would had been celebrating if that had happend because that would had been a defeat for Obama, plus they don't give a damn about the uninsured cause they don't give a damn about offering an alternative.


Florida means alot to me, I got roots in that state, and it's been a shame these Republicans destroy that state by gerrymander the hell out of it. Or disenfranchising Democrats and left leaning Independents, because they see the demographic time bomb they're facing and will start to lose the strenglehold they have on Tallahassee. And who could forget the shenanigans from the 2000 election recount that alot of us still have those raw and uneased nerves 12 years later.

As much as Democrats in Florida can't wait till 2014 when it will be almost open season like on Rick Scott who will be a huge drag on Republicans down ticket, we have to focused on making sure Pres. Obama and Sen. Nelson win reelection. We all know Obama wins Florida game over. Which I believe he will carry the state. I don't live in Florida but us Dems and Kossacks who live in Florida, that should be priority number 1. Then we can start on 2014 not only by taking out Rick Scott and his Lieutenant (in Florida Gov & Lt. Gov run on the same ticket), but also the Attorney General. Those two have been nothing but teabaggin idiots who've been an outright disaster for the state. I hope we beat Atwater too, but that maybe a lil bit of a stretch. And hopefully Democratic efforts will be lead by the next party chair Scott Randolph, who I will write about his declared candidacy and what it means for Fla Dems present and future.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
