Scott: Foreign policy? It’s all about jobs

by Dara Kam | October 22nd, 2012

In the spin room at Lynn University, Gov. Rick Scott said that tonight’s presidential debate should center on one thing: Jobs.

That’s no surprise, since Scott ran his own gubernatorial campaign two years ago on the same agenda. Scott promised to create 700,000 jobs in seven years.

So Scott offered a job-centric prediction of what to expect from Romney tonight.

“He’s going to continue to do the same thing he’s talked about. He’s going to talk about the two paths. He’s going to explain the fact that this whole election is about jobs, just like my race in 2010. And his path for job creation is going to be the key thing,” Scott said.

But tonight’s debate is focused on foreign policy, a reporter pointed out to Scott.

“Foreign policy is all about jobs. It’s all about how we create predictability so businesses want to invest so we can get more jobs. This race 100 percent about jobs. The foreign policy focus is just like cars. How do we participate in a global economy, how do we get more jobs for America,” Scott said.

    I am sure Rmoney will “talk and talk” about jobs but like Rick Scott, it will be lots of talk but no real action. Where are those 700,000 jobs that you promised Mr. Scott? Or, even 350,000 jobs since you’ve been in office for only 2 years? Yes we need lots of jobs. Here in Florida, most of any new jobs are minimum wage jobs. Those kind of jobs don’t do much to boost the economy. We need real good paying jobs and not more political hot air by politicians!

    What a freaking nimrod. Judging by his quotes in this article, Scott likely doesn’t know what the term “foreign policy” means.

    Romney’s plan to create jobs.

    Have more wars.
    Increase the number of troop levels in the service = more jobs.
    Combat losses will increase the number of equipment orders to replace destroyed gear, thus requiring more factory workers in the defense industry.
    Outsource non-combat arms functions to civilian contractors to work on all military supply, logistics, admin, etc duties.

    Mitt’s intent is to have a happy, healthy, growing war-based economy…..with your kids spilling their blood….not Mitt’s 5 military age sons.

    JOBS,JOBS,JOBS…..Enough jobs cannot be created as long as there is overpopulation due to borders that are wide open and families having 4,5,6 plus babies that they can’t afford.
