New ad from Florida GOP again blames Crist for recession

One thing you can say about Governor Rick Scott - when it comes to Florida's economy he is not shy about giving himself credit for the state's job growth.

And, the fact is that Scott has largely kept the pledge he made four years ago to focus on adding jobs and boosting Florida's economy. There has been considerable success and Scott deserves some of the credit. 

Of course, forces outside of Scott's control also have played a major role in Florida's economic growth - just as forces outside of Florida Governor Charlie Crist's control led to the state's economic collapse. No one can rightly blame Crist for the Great Recession.

Still, Crist can be blamed for being too politically ambitious - more interested in becoming Sen. John McCain's running mate or a U.S. Senator - than doing the gritty work of governing.

Here's the latest GOP ad blaming Crist for the economic downfall and giving Scott a tad too much credit.
