Sure we saw the "F" -- but he also got an "A" for a few years
"The Christian Coalition gave (Adam) Hasner an F."
Was out, now he's in
On whether he would run for U.S. Senate in 2012.
This double cherry-pick was a bit sour for our tastes
Says U.S. Senate candidate Adam Hasner "cited his efforts to weaken pro-life and school choice legislation as unequivocal proof that he’s a moderate."
Right on vote, less so on committees
"George LeMieux voted against the majority of Republicans and joined with Democrats to create a 'Task Force For Responsible Fiscal Action' that looks strikingly similar to the 'Super Committee' now being set up in Washington to justify massive tax hikes."
Most Florida lawmakers asked for even more
Says Adam Hasner’s record includes "requesting over $92.2 million in earmarks."
Texas can't make Congress do diddly
"This past (legislative) session, we passed out of the Legislature a resolution requiring Congress to pass a balanced-budget amendment to the (U.S.) Constitution."
He wasn't always a CEO
"I've created over 40,000 jobs."
The chances are slim, and slim
Florida’s proposed Health Care Freedom Act "will allow Floridians to opt out of Obama’s govt. takeover of healthcare!"
Hasner's campaign says he didn't mean "only"
"I sponsored and was the co-sponsor of the only legislation that ever passed that had E-Verify provisions in it back in 2010 when I served in the Legislature."
Criticized Rubio's tax-swap plan
Says George LeMieux "falsely attacked Marco Rubio."
A hollow attack
Says George LeMieux "even compared Marco Rubio to Barack Obama."
Not the job cuts you'd think
"Earlier this year, the head of the Congressional Budget Office testified before Congress that implementation of Obamacare would cost 800,000 jobs."
Overstates impact of the law
"Obamacare cuts $500 billion in future Medicare funding in order to fund the new constitutionally questionable government mandate, even going so far as to scuttle Medicare's most popular (and successful) part, Medicare Advantage."
It takes two to make a thing bipartisan
"No one thought we could get a bipartisan bill (Medicaid) passed. We did in the Florida Senate."
Depends if you count recession months
"Obama-Nelson economic record: Job creation ... at slowest post-recession rate since Great Depression."
