WHY IS PAULA DOCKERY AGAINST THIS TRAIN AND HER VERY RICH HUSBAND DOC DOCKERY LOVES IT AND LOVES OBAMA AND BILL NELSON. HE HAS ONLY WONDERFUL THINGS TO SAY ABOUT BOTH OF THEM AND GOT OUT OF HIS SICK BED TO TRAVEL TO TAMPA JUST TO MEET THEM. HE IS ONLY A REPUBLICAN BECAUSE HIS WIFE IS RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR THIS YEAR. SHE IS ATTACKING EVERYONE WHO IS AGAINST THIS TRAIN EXCEPT HER HUSBAND.
