GOP AFRAID IN GETTING CAUGHT IN THEIR LIES?
Adam C. Smith of the St. Petersburg Times writes in his blog The Buzz today that he and three other political reporters were escorted out of a GOP conference today at Lake Buena Vista during a speech in which Governor Bush was urging party activists to spread the word about Republican successes across Florida.
Smith, Jeremy Wallace of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, the Tallahassee Democrat's Bill Cotterell, and Wendy March of the Tampa Tribune were ejected by Disney security officers and a Orange County sheriff's deputy as the governor was speaking. Afterward, Bush said "I apologize for that if I'm indirectly responsible, which I'm not...I would have loved to have you in there. ... I wouldn't have said anything different if you were there.''
Obviously, someone in the Florida GOP leadership didn't want these "nosy" reporters writing about the Gov's remarks. Why...afraid of a little embarassment when they show how much fiction his speech was filled with???
