This went on for seven full minutes before Rick finally rolled onto the stage. Scott’s subsequent attempt to explain his own juvenile behavior is even better:
Did you get that? Scott refused to take the stage because he wanted to wait until his opponent “was ready?”
It’s almost like the Governor hired someone to tell him what not to do in front of a camera. Given the fact that Scott went so far as to adopt a rescue dog, ask his “fans” to help him name it, and then return it to its previous owner after the 2012 election, we expected him to be slicker under pressure.
Whatever Rick Scott says in this debate, he’ll be remembered for refusing to debate because of a fan. What a self-inflicted disaster.
