An uninspiring Senate flock

The current front-runner is state Senate President Mike Haridopolos, the favorite of the party establishment who gave us Charlie Crist and Jim Greer and prefer the status quo. If you, too, like the way things are, and if you think the politicians currently in office are outstanding public servants with the best interests of your children at heart, Mike is your man.

The Republican Party never misses an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

The current field of GOP candidates who aspire to run against U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson represent another missed opportunity. They are all uninspiring political ladder climbers who lack a vision for anyone’s future but their own.

So who are these men who seek to represent us? And why isn’t the field any better?

The current front-runner is state Senate President Mike Haridopolos, the favorite of the party establishment who gave us Charlie Crist and Jim Greer and prefer the status quo. If you, too, like the way things are, and if you think the politicians currently in office are outstanding public servants with the best interests of your children at heart, Mike is your man.

  1. Regardless of who the Republican Party nominates to challenge U.S. Senator Bill Nelson in 2012, they will be infinitely better than Nelson who has been one of the most, if not, the luckiest politician in recent memory. Additionally, Nelson told us who he really is when he “sold” his vote to pass an unconstitutional and unpopular health care bill and the fact that he has voted to add almost $5 trillion to the national debt in the last two years. Moreover, his decision to back the boondoggle high-speed rail project when we do not have the money to pay for it.

    Florida is a center-right state and Senator Nelson no longer represents the interest of the State of Florida. In fact, he is a fiscally irresponsible and liberal politician who – to the best of my knowledge – has held no real private sector job since being elected to public office almost four decades ago and who has benefited from being married to the daughter of a prominent North Florida family.

    When I cast my vote, I will vote not for a candidate’s personal background but their political ideology. A strong belief in less taxing, less spending, less government, more freedom and adherence to the Constitution’s limitation on the power of the federal government.

    Of the announced candidates or those who have expressed an interest to challenge Senator “Empty Suit” Bill Nelson, my choice is for Connie Mack IV to be our nominee and the next U.S. Senator to represent Florida in the Senate.

  2. I agreee we seem to cosistantly shoot ourselves in the foot
    with our Senatorial candidates.

    I regret the passing of Leroy Collins JR, yes a name from the past, but in his own right a most distinguished and accomplished individual with integrity and honor to boot. We saw how much traction and support he received in his brief effor to tro run for the Senate.

    Sadly the process seems to find those who will continue to add to our Nation peril.

  3. I noticed a name that was overlooked because you have not heard of him, or could it be that you have not met him.

    Get in touch with him at bnccallister@earthli9nk.net

    He seems to have an indepth grasp of what a U.S. sSenator should do.

    We really do not always have to support one with the greatest name recognition.
