Florida GOP highlights my Tweet to attack Crist & Sink; what about the other Tweets I wrote yesterday?

in Uncategorized by

The Republican Party of Florida distributed an email today which uses a Tweet I posted yesterday as a jumping-off point to, once again, bash Charlie Crist and Alex Sink.

“Several members of Alex Sink’s inner circle now say she’s telling them she’s running for governor in 2014,” went the Tweet. The RPOF’s email tops its cake with that line, then layers in a few bullet points about, “How Skipper Sink and Captain Crist Sank Florida’s Economy and Finances.”

As Democratic strategist Kevin Cate notes, also on Twitter, “The only thing the @FloridaGOP wants to take credit for after 15 years running Tallahassee is the national Obama recovery.”

While I appreciate the RPOF spotlighting my Twitter account, I wish it wouldn’t cherry-pick my Tweets to make its case – although I understand why it does.

Lenny Curry and Co. wouldn’t dare retweet some of the other items I posted yesterday, such as, “With Rick Scott, it’s one step forward, five steps backward with veto of immigration bill” or “What 2014 gubernatorial race will be about … is undoing the Tea Party’s chokehold on Fla. That’s why Crist/Sink will win.”

No, those tweets just don’t jive with the Florida GOP’s Twitter timeline.
