"Work-a-day" Rick

Miami, FL--

Governor Rick Scott went to work Friday at the Port of Miami for one of his "Let's Get to Work Days." The governor went to work at the Seaboard Marine, an ocean transportation company, to check heavy construction equipment waiting to be loaded onto a cargo vessel.

Scott, a Republican, borrowed the "workdays" idea from former Gov. and U.S. Sen. Bill Graham. The Democrat performed hundreds of "workdays" during his eight years as governor and 18 as a senator.

Scott has been making stops across the state to work jobs with regular Floridians. This is the governor's fifth "work day." Last month, he waited tables and washed dishes at a Panama City Beach seafood restaurant.

    RICKY( I HATE THE STATE EMPLOYEE) SCOTT WORK.... THE ONLY THING HE WORKS HARD AT IS TRYING TO COMPLETELY DISPOSE THE STATE WORKFORCE FOR THE BENEFIT OF HIS BUDDIES AND CORP. THAT HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO HIS CAUSE. TYPICAL REPUBLICAN TEAPARTY CARPETBAGGER.

    I wonder if Bill Graham was any relation to another former Florida governor and U.S. Senator by the name of "Bob" Graham.

    Maybe he can buy a job down there and save Florida single-handed by quitting the job he bought last year.
