Let's start with the fact that Rick Scott is not one of Florida's most beloved governors. Still, the video going viral of a former Lake Worth city commissioner screaming at Scott as he was getting a cup of coffee in a Gainesville Starbucks is troubling.
Cara Jennings, 38, is a self-proclaimed anarchist. Long known in Lake Worth for her antics, as well as her concerns about the poor and others ignored by society at large, Jennings was a city commissioner from 2006 to 2010.
Jennings gives much of herself to fight for the causes she believes in. More citizens should be as involved in issues they care about.
Still, there is nothing appropriate about her screaming at Scott. Her actions suggest someone who has become so self-absorbed that she no longer understands the consequences of boorish behavior.
Of course Scott, as he is about to dash out the door, grins and says he created 1 million jobs.
Once again proving that no Florida governor has ever been more disconnected with the average Floridian than Scott.
Still, Jennings behavior, where a bunch of folks just wanted to drink their coffee, was rude, inappropriate and something not to be applauded.
Unfortunately, many folks are praising what Jennings did.
You should reconsider.
