Scott to tout proposed auto fee cut -- again

A joke isn’t done until it’s overdone.

For politicians, that maxim also applies to announcing intentions to cut fees during an election year.

Gov. Rick Scott drops by Brandon Honda this Wednesday for what is dubbed a “major announcement” by the Republican Party of Florida.

Since the announcement is staged at a car dealership, odds are that it’s got something to do with Scott’s already announced plan to cut auto registration fees by $401 million -- which would save the the typical motorist $25.

Last month, Scott announced the fee cut plan at Hilton Tampa Airport Westshore. That he’s announcing it a second time in Hillsborough is no surprise -- it’s, a county that is crucial to next year's gubernatorial contest and adjacent to Pinellas, the home turf of his rival, Charlie Crist.

If you want to check it out, it’ll be at Brandon Honda, 9209 East Adamo Drive, Tampa, between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

The citizens who once doubted this political novice have been won over by his exemplary fiscal stewardship. He was left with a horrible financial situation and state facing deficits by the scumbag Crist but now has returned our state to prosperity and to the point where such a large $400 million return of the taxpayers money was available which is remarkable and unprecedented for this state. Even better he is returning money that the scumbag crist took from the citizen when he imposed this tax.
