    Seems the "Very" Popular Governor of Florida Rick Scott had nothing to do over the weekend
    That means his schedule was BLANK on Saturday and Sunday
    Also the Governor of Texas the other Rick Rick Perry went AWOL

    Oh NO ..... were they both on the Appalachian Trail like Mark Sanford said he was?

    Nope by checking Perry's private jet he was in Colorado
    and so was Rick Scott and so was the wonderfully gay friendly Governor of Virginia
    At a meeting with the Koch Brothers

    Hey right wing ya still afraid of George Soros .... ?

    This is an example of why our government/politicians have become the worst government/leaders by and for the Corps. to the demise of the Public Good. Republicans seem like the most bought off of the two Parties but we cannot leave out the affects of Corp. money on the Democrats either. Diplomacy, Foreign Relations, Voting for the good of our public destiny is becoming a sham,

    When big corporate liberals help out democratic campaigns it's "standing up for the people", when conservative corporation owning donors contribute to republican campaigns it's "corporate takeover of government".

    The question isn't donations, it's secret meetings. Our own Florida Governor Rick Scott has never failed to publish a detailed 7-day weekly schedule, to even include church on Sunday. It was the unprecedented blank pages for last Saturday & Sunday that got the media's attention. And his staff claimed to be unaware of where he was.

    The Texas Governor did the same thing, as did Virginia's. And they still won't say where they were. Why? What have they got to hide?

    That's the issue, as well you know, not political fundraising. And for governors who aren't due for reelection for some years yet? So why was this deliberately hidden from the public? Gov. Perry of Texas even used a contributor's private plane to get there, rather than going by official means.

    Why all the secrecy? Why couldn't the voters in their homes states know about this? Aren't they public officials? That's the real issue, but your diversion was interesting, if ineffective. Because you don't even know if it WAS about campaign issues, that's your assumption. And since when do the wealthy summon our governors in secret?

    Why do they have to disclose every move they make? The third person invited had it advertised for everyone to see that he was meeting with the Koch brothers!

    Because Scott works for the people of Florida and as his hiring managers they have a right to know how (and with whom) he spends his time.

    As if "secret meetings" are some sort of new thing or only among Republicans? Besides, it's not necessarily that they are "secret" as perhaps simply not broadcast or announced. This sort of thing happens all the time by people of all parties. So much of what goes on in politics is orchestrated behind closed doors.

    How do we know just how many Republican office holders were there? Perry & Scott were discovered by good investigative reporting, despite withholding their schedules from public view, and Perry even taking a privately-owned plane. Since it was apparently concealed, how many others concealed their attendance, not yet revealed?

    And Rick Scott DOES disclose every move he makes, to include attending church. Except this past weekend he apparently ceased to exist, for the first time in his term, which is what raised the suspicions of the press. Now why would he conceal this meeting with the Koch brothers? What is there to hide?

    And why couldn't his staff say where he was? Did he not tell them, or were they hiding it? It's one thing to not announce something, quite another to deliberately withhold information when directly asked by the press corps.

    A US Governor has too many important duties & responsibilities to simply disappear without explanation. You remember what happened when former Gov. Sanford (R) of South Carolina tried that.

    Uh-uh AZ .... there WAS a concerted effort to keep it secret

    Like the Story said

    Rick Scott left a complete Two Day BLANK
    In his schedule
    and the only way we found out where the heel Rick Perry was by tracking his private plane

    CAN YOU IMAGINE ..... IF ANDREW CUOMO AND DEVAL PATRICK WENT TO A WEEKEND MEETING AT GEORGE SOROS' CALL?

    Can you imagine the wall to wall coverage that would make
    Glenn Beck's Head would explode

    Maybe that wouldn't be such a bad thing icon_biggrin.gif

    The bolded part is key. And, again, Scott works for the people of Florida, who have a right to know if he's pushing their agenda or the agenda of billionaires from another state.

    Riddler et al ..... you're not listening to the gist of the entire story
    It's not about them having a weekend
    It's not about them doing what they wanna do

    They kept it from other people finding out
    There ARE no blank portions in a Governor's schedule .... EVER
    Ask Mark Sanford

    But there were blanks in the two Rick's schedules
    AND when the press asked the Governor's staff ... Hey what's with the up coming weekend ?
    His staff told them to go look at his schedule online ...... Uh We just did that

    Sorry ... this stinks to high heaven and now we can plainly see two VERY rich men pulling the strings and sending out marching orders
