Rick Scott's Prediction That Herman Cain Would Be the Next President -- Not Quite

Categories: Politics
Wait, what?
Gov. Rick Scott's prediction that Herman Cain would become the next president of the United States didn't quite come true.

Cain announced this weekend that he was "suspending" his presidential campaign after yet another woman decided to go public about her encounters with him -- this time, a woman alleging a lengthy extramarital affair with the former Godfather's Pizza CEO.

We'd just like to remind everyone that the governor predicted Cain would be the next president.

The governor went on Fox News the week before Florida's Presidency 5 straw poll, declaring that whoever won the straw poll would be the next president.

"I personally believe whoever wins that straw poll, they will be the next president of the United States," Scott said.

With 37 percent of the straw-poll votes, that was Cain.

Cain actually got more votes than Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney combined, who garnered 15 percent and 14 percent, respectively, in the September poll.

The governor hasn't endorsed a presidential candidate, although he's guaranteed the Republican nominee's going to win the White House.

That's probably good news for President Obama's reelection bid.

i mean this Goober Gov. will certainly ever be president. Even w/ all your money there sir. I mean this is a man who spent what almost 100million to get elected. And he's saying Herman Cain should have been our next president. This Gov. w/ all his bells and whistles is still the same goober.


Rick Scott, as good a predictor and analyst as he is a governor.  If he keeps this up, even FOX wont touch him.Maybe he should stick to his day job of defrauding the American people?

The circus.....goes on and on and on. And the guy who is twice divorced and had an extra-marital affair with his current wife hopes to gain the most from this. AMAZING!! More than ever, as I look at the sorry set of Republican “rivals” on the other side, I am THANKFUL to have Barack Obama as  President, and as a viable candidate for re-election. Mr. Obama: your heart, your values, and your basic decency are all in the right place. BUT...your hands are tied. Unfortunately they were tied by us, the electorate.....when we failed to provide you with a Congress that you can work with. Instead, you are saddled with a don’t-tax-the-1%-do-nothing Congress that battles you at every turn, while the people suffer. God, they don't EVEN let you pass your own appointments. It's not Tea-publican gridlock -it's Tea-publican sabotage. Heck, it's Tea-publican treason....while the 99% BLEEDS. And then they try to pin the blame on Mr. Obama. These people have no shame...or else its been purchased by those who can afford to do so. In her last years, Grandma gets her meager Social Security check, and they DARE to call it “socialism”. Give me a break! (and Grandma too!) Thankfully, with Occupy Wall Street, America has found its voice: a voice that reminds us that people -ordinary down-to-earth working people- really DO matter. Not “corporations are people -people” , but REAL people! Tea-publicans want even MORE 1%-tax-break-corporate-loopholes....while these “job-creators”  send our jobs overseas, and wish that we’d go away too.... as they buy every politician in sight. And if these politicians don’t have ENOUGH mistresses, I can hook them up with a few gorgeous -and rich!- oil companies. It would be a perfect blind date, except for the fact that they’re ALREADY in bed with them  :-).   But instead of talking about LESS government, and LESS taxes on the 1%, and MORE corporate welfare, and MORE painful cuts to those who can LEAST afford it....Occupy is a voice that demands a government that WORKS, a government that works FOR ALL OF US, not just for a favored few....not just for the rich. It’s a voice that comes up from the grassroots, and lifts us up in turn: because it insists that this land IS our land...and that we WANT IT BACK!  It's a voice that will help us re-elect the President AND give him a more progressive people-oriented Congress to work with. Mr. Obama: I wish you well.... because you STILL give us hope!
