    Yesterday, our Toad in Chief vetoed all kinds of programs that were popular: vets programs, whooping cough vaccines for the poor, etc....not unexpected but I thought this was very telling. I'm pretty sure these people are seniors that were strong armed out of a public place (The Villages is a Senior Community, I believe)

    I'm really glad to see that

    The Florida voters got what they asked for.....just like when they gave us George Bush

    I doubt any of the rightwingloons will be shocked at his behavior. He's pretty much becoming Mr. Big Government.

    Thankfully the Republicans are also pissed off at him.

    The guy is really a toad, there's just no sugarcoating it.

    Repubs claim that gov't doesn't work & prove it every time they're elected.

    You're whining that he vetoed all manner of new spending, but you're calling him "Mr. big government?"

    What is your idea of "small government," the Soviet Union?

    According to lib nitwits, if you cut government spending, then you're for big government.

    I'm just listening to a robocall from Governor Toad.

    He's telling me he is awesome and how cutting funding for schools helps schools.

    Looks like he's taking a page from Dubya's playbook. Only represent one side.
