It’s going to be an all out blitz in FL of Medi-scare ads. But Dems are starting so early on Medi-scare, that people may be numb to it by the time the election rolls around. That’s pretty much all they’ve got to run on, and people can take only so much.

A house in my neighborhood in south Fla. was appraised at 850k a few years ago. It was sold at a bank auction a few months ago at $275k. Most of the Keys are like that.
Ouch! Some relatives are having improvements done. I hope they aren’t in vain.
“What worries me is the potential for a 3-way race”
That is their best hope. They will have to hope or create a “conservative” third party candidate to siphon votes away to ensure Obumbo will win.
It’s even worse in Key West. Condos selling for 650k a few yeas ago are routinely foreclosed on at 150-175k with monthly maintenance fees skyrocketing since the places are not longer fully sold.
Hard to tell. Most liekly scenario for real estate to make a come back is when the dollar is worth about half of what it is now in a few years.
Some Democrats claim that Rick Scott’s unpopularity will spill over into the presidential are. I don’t think it will be much of a factor.
People forget how close 2008 actually was....Red states gain 14 Electoral Votes due to reapportionment off the census, all they need is Florida Ohio and any other one state...this is totally doable.
Rick Scott only beat alex sink by 2% of the vote for governor.
And in Broward county where I live, 66% went for sink. Of course this is dws district 20. help boot her
Let’s make the headline less wordy.
Obama is challenged
I’m concerned about a repeat of 2000...with a close contested election.
Fortunately, our legislature just passed some new election laws that should curb voter fraud.
Not taking anything for granted...we all need to work very hard to REPEAL OBAMA in 2012!
Very amusing. Is your husband from Scotland?
I pray that Donald Trump does NOT run as and Independent and split the anti-Obama vote.
You make a very good point.
Unfortunately, I think the absolute guaranteed rat minimum vote is probably at 40% these days. Back in 1992, it was probably in the mid 30's. So, all the rats and msm need to do is support a third party candidate to such an extent that he can get into the upper teens. Then, an obamao victory can be assured -- now matter how bad the economy is and now matter how impressive the GOP candidate is.
So the question is: will Trump be able to repeat Perot's 1992 -uh- "success"?
no he isn’t - he signed in one night and started a conversation. He got interrupted and asked me to continue the conversation without him - hence my FReeper id was born ;)
