“I think they were tone-deaf,” “They weren’t interested in hearing my opinion on what was happening on the ground with the oil spill. And they never acknowledged that they had problems with the acceptance of health care reform.”
“They got a huge wake-up call two days ago, but unfortunately they took a lot of Democrats down with them,” Sink said in an interview with Politico, adding, “They just need to be better listeners and be better at reaching out to people who are on the ground to hear about the realities of their policies as well as politics.”
Alex Sink was right, when she said that you know. A lot of people from her party might run to defend the White House, but there is little doubt that America’s uneasiness with the President’s policies was the difference between victory and defeat in the Florida’s Governors race. Let’s take a look at some of Governor-elect Scott’s favorite phrases.
“Thats Obama math” – When referring to Sink’s economic policies
“You supported Obama care”- Self-explanatory
“Your an Obama Liberal”- when referring to everything else that didn’t fall under the President’s unpopular policies.
Rick Scott wasn’t the only one to play that card during the election season.
Attorney General-elect Pam Bondi’s ad,connecting Dan Gelber’s refusal to continue the lawsuit against the President’s health care plan. “No” on loop during the entire commercial when answering the question, during an appearance on Greta Van Susteren. Our future CFO, Jeff Atwater chose a different pitch and connected Loranne Ausley to Nancy Pelosi.
It was happening all over the country of course, Democrats being retired because of President Obama’s lackluster track record with working with Republicans.
What really fired me up was the reply that was given.
Well she got caught up in the text thing, during the debate and she just didn’t do a good job with her campaign.
Give me a break, White House! Alex Sink didn’t lose by 8 points, she lost by a few thousand, because you guys fell back on your campaign promise for bi-partisanship in Washington and President Obama even pledged to work with Republican leadership, at a press conference the day after the elections.
Democrats in all 50 states were thinking the same thing, Alex Sink was one of the few, who had the guts to say it.
