Gov. Rick Scott's State of the State speech before the Legislature on March 4 sounded like a re-election campaign speech instead of a talk about state goals for the next year.
With a meager legislative agenda, the governor again laid claim to improving the states economy while deriding his predecessor and gubernatorial foe, Charlie Crist, as the architect of failure.
One comment stands out, the one where Scott attacked Crist for accepting billions in federal stimulus money saying that drove the states economy into the ground.
Tell that to the hundreds of teachers whose jobs were spared.
Tell that to the construction workers and communities that benefited from the hundreds of highway and bridge projects, and additional airport and transit projects.
Scotts comment no doubt plays well with stimulus opponents, but he cannot rewrite history to fit a political campaign.
