</div></div>

Eh.........YOU DID!


<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Running on the motto “Let’s get to work,” Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) heralded himself as the jobs candidate during his gubernatorial campaign. Both in a debate and on his campaign bus, Scott declared that his seven-step plan would create 700,000 jobs, in addition to jobs that Florida added from normal growth. When a reporter asked whether the 700,000 jobs would be on top of the projected growth over the next five years, Scott agreed, “It’s on top of that. If you do these things we’re going to grow 700,000 more jobs.” During a debate in 2010, Scott also declared that his “plan is seven steps to 700,000 jobs, and that plan is on top of what normal growth would be.”

Scott, however, has spent his first nine months in office sprinting away from that promise. This summer, when a reporter reminded Scott of his pledge to create 700,000 jobs on top of economic growth, Scott played astonishingly dumb.<span style='font-size: 14pt'> “No, that’s not true,” he said. When pushed, he added, “I don’t know who said that, so I have no idea.”</span> Last week, the Sun Sentinal editorial board asked Scott point blank, “Your pledge was for 700,000 in addition to normal growth, wasn’t it?” “No,” he replied. “700,000.”

The St. Petersburg Times and the Miami Herald tracked his sprint backwards. Watch it: </div></div>

Rick Scott is not stupid. He is well aware of what he previously said and must be well aware that google and youtbe will expose his lies, but he does it anyway.
