Is Obama Hoping a Python will Swallow Up His Economic Failures?
You know that old adage: when the economy is in the tank, tour the Everglades? Well, no, we don't either, but the lefties sure do -- I can still picture a tanned and smiling Gov. Charlie Crist with the beautiful sawgrass swaying in the breeze behind him.
With new poll numbers showing perceptions of the economy in the toilet, here comes the president tossing out the Everglades card for the second time in two weeks, sending Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar for a 'Glades photo op.
Salazar said Everglades restoration is the "highest priority" for the president, according to The Palm Beach Post, who reported Salazar questions the state's commitment to a recently announced $880 million Everglades settlement. “There has to be a continuous commitment by Florida.” Salazar said.
A continuous commitment? Are you guys joshing me?
Is this the same administration, the same feds, who are something like $2 BILLION behind the state in funding River of Grass efforts? What an example of how arrogant these people are, how clueless about dollars and cents. Sheesh!
