The Jan. 6 front page story, It’s now or never for ‘Pink slip Rick,’ about Gov. Rick Scott’s popularity is typical of the left-wing slant on any politician supported by right-wing fringer, Constitution supporting Tea Partiers like myself. Even though “signs of improvement under Scott are evident,” they claim that the “public’s negative view is unyielding.”
I didn’t vote for Rick Scott to be a popular governor. I voted for his policies.
Most people who voted for President Obama voted for him because of his popularity, although his policies will soon be the demise of America. So I assume what The Herald is trying to point out is that to be a successful politician, you must be popular with the people regardless of your policies. Popularity is now more important than policies? I think not.
