Aid coming from Mexico, Canada, Netherlands and Norway
The White House has "refused" international help in dealing with the oil spill.
State Rep. Marti Coley chatted up BP about paying for ads before Sink
Alex Sink was "the first official who said that BP should pay $25 million for an ad campaign to promote Florida tourism."
Comment came before magnitude was clear
After the oil spill, Congressman Adam Putnam "doubled down saying all energy sources, including oil drilling in the Gulf, should be considered just days after the oil spill started."
Drill -- safely -- baby, Drill
"Rick Scott's even saying he wants more offshore drilling."
But they have since changed their tune
"Incoming House Speaker Dean Cannon and incoming Senate President Mike Haridopolos have said they plan to champion efforts next legislative session to allow oil rigs off Florida's coast."
One switch, one shimmy
"The governor switched his position once again on offshore oil drilling."
