Florida Gov. Rick Scott gave President Barack Obama advice Wednesday on how to properly manage a budget.
Scott sent a letter to the president urging him to avoid the “meat cleaver” of budget cuts, known as sequestration, that are set to begin Friday. The governor advised Obama to follow his lead on how to deal with fiscal issues.
Warning signs to President Barack Obama and his re-election campaign team are coming in the form of the latest CBS/New York Times survey and Americans' souring perception of the state of the country's economy.
The poll reveals that belief that the economy is getting better among registered voters nationwide has dropped by almost a third since April, falling from 33 percent to a dire 24 percent. Seven in 10 Americans now say the economy is in bad shape.
While many in Florida's Capitol press corps chatter incessantly about Gov. Rick Scott's favorability ratings -- using terms like "the worst" and "awful" -- they might want to sharpen those media pencils and take note of President Barack Obama's latest standing in this week's CBS/New York Times poll
Did somebody say recession? Looking at Florida Trend's annual rankings of Florida's powerhouse public and private companies, who would have predicted in these economic times that the top 350 companies surveyed would actually record an increase in revenue of nearly $40 billion year over year? According to Florida's premier business magazine, the top public companies enjoyed a rise in revenue of 8.2 percent, collectively, while the leading private companies surpassed their public counterparts with a 9.3 percent increase.
Earlier this month, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio’s team sent out an e-blast claiming: "Everyone from President Obama's press secretary, to Senator Harry Reid, to Obama's liberal campaign machines funded with millions of special-interest dollars [has] put Marco at the top of their enemies list.”
Newt Gingrich's faltering presidential campaign will receive another massive cash infusion from Sheldon Adelson, CBS News
The former House Speaker's Republican presidential bid has been kept alive by the Vegas king thus far. But, with Gingrich's lackluster performances in recent states, political observers and pundits have largely speculated that Adelson may have said enough's enough.
With all the frenzy over the shifting GOP so-called "front-runners," one thing that has remained constant is the chatter over who could be picked by the eventual nominee as the ticket's vice presidential candidate.
That was clearly evident on The Fix Live
Friday morning, where it didn't take long for the focus to turn to Florida's own Republican darling, Sen. Marco Rubio.
What if you hosted a presidential debate and no one came?
CNN announced it today: it will cancel its presidential debate that was set to take place in Atlanta.
Mitt Romney, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum indicated they had no appetite to travel to Georgia for yet another Republican presidential primary debate on March 1, ahead of Super Tuesday.
Not surprisingly, the news was not well-received by the Gingrich camp, whose candidate relies on strong debate performances and the roar of a crowd.
A new Republican National Committee infographic, based on an analysis by The Washington Post this week, shows a web of Obama "insiders" in the Department of Energy who are tied to clean-energy companies that received billions in federal dollars.
Newt Gingrich's moon colony should be grounded, according to a new poll of GOP voters.
The Hill, a Washington, D.C.-based newspaper, is reporting that Newt Gingrich’s moon colony has a long way to go before it meets with voters' approval. The Hill poll reveals 64 percent of Republicans disapprove of the United States building a permanent base on the moon. Only 21 percent of GOP voters favor the idea.
Continuing their distaste for all things Newt, women -- most of all -- scoffed at the idea, with only 14 percent approving of the colony.
