Florida's public officials have been bad
"I have had the challenge during this administration to suspend no less than 37 public officials in about 36 months."
Numbers differ based on study
"Close to half of the folks in this country illegally entered legally (but) overstayed (their ) visas."
Helps that the primary is uncontested
"No Democratic campaign for (Fla.) governor has ever had these kinds of resources this early on in an election cycle."
The number appears to be one
"A number of the national publications have put this race in a tossup race between Democrats and Republicans. They don't know who's going to win this race."
Probably more than one day
"Why is January 8th an important date in American history? This day in 1835 is the only day in our history when we have not been in debt."
Obama said negotiations would be on TV
"President Obama has broken his pledge to the American people to be transparent throughout (health care reform negotiations)."

Charlie Crist broke the quarter "record for fundraising in a U.S. Senate race in Florida."
One of these numbers is not like the others
When Charlie Crist was elected governor, Florida ranked 31st in K-12 education. "Last year ... we went from 31st to 14. And this year, the top 10 in America."
He said 'never'
"I have never voted for a tax increase."
Young got some of the words right, just not many
C.W. Bill Young
Claims that Obama said, "For those who oppose our policies, you should just shut up and go away."
Declining home values wrecked his estimate -- and another tax cut is bigger
"I signed the largest single tax cut in the history of Florida, a $25 billion tax cut over five years, directed at property tax cuts."
It's an apples to oranges comparison
"Usually it's about $900 a month to get health coverage. (Florida's program has) reduced that, on average, to about $150 a month."
