Rick Scott's Dirty Ad
Rick Scott has the audacity to release an ad titled "Obama's Mosque." Fact: President Barack Obama does not own a mosque or is in any way direct with the Muslim prayer room that will be in the old Burlington Coat Factory building. The site is technically 2.5 blocks away and Ground Zero is not visible from the Burlington Coat Factory lot at 41 Park Place. Strip clubs such as New York Dolls are in the vicinity of Ground Zero. Fox News and Republicans haven't called for stopping these businesses. Perhaps conservatives are waiting for Scott to unveil an ad called "Obama's Strip Club."
The most troubling and racist thing about the ad is Scott is unable to grasp that the people behind the Cordoba House are not all terrorists. By Scott's logic all Irish Catholics are members of the IRA. Scott claims to be speaking "truth" but fails to use logic.
Scott's ad is gutter politics. The reason Bill McCollum is doing better in the polls is because voters are rightfully disgusted with Scott's political tactics. Scott seems to believe he can make whatever ad hominem and not have to answer questions about his shady background. Scott deserves to be rebuked by voters.
