Even on the screen you could sense Gov. Rick Scott's excitement - and perhaps a hint of "I can't believe I'm here" as he gave his first State-of-the-State address before a joint session of the Florida Legislature.
"Gosh this is great" gushed Scott as he stood at the podium.
His speech was largely an extension of his campaign speech and predictably ended with his campaign tagline "let's get to work."
But he did have some rhetorical flourishes - "We build magic kingdoms. We launch ships that fly to the moon. Florida can be the state where the American dream continues to be a reality."
Some noted in their tweets during the speech that building magic kingdoms and launching ships to the moon also required heavy government spending.
