Media confronts Gov. Rick Scott over pushing lie...

How many times have we seen and heard Scott Walker, WISGOP and majority Republicans stick to their often repeated lies no matter how debunked? It’s almost like they never expected to be corrected, so they had no backup.

So it is with Republicans, and their voters keep letting them get away with it, without asking, was that the only lie?

Here’s a doozy with Gov. Rick Scott, whose reaction is so classically, Republicans:

HuffingtonPost: When reporters asked Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) about reelection campaign ads that incorrectly imply 300,000 people in the state have lost their health insurance plans as a result of Obamacare, he licked his lips and dug in.

"Clearly, the ad's accurate," Scott told reporters gathered outside a senior center in Miami on Wednesday.

"But it's not, governor!" insisted one reporter, who pointed out that the Blue Cross-run agency at the center of the claim had already debunked the numbers. A second reporter continued to question the assertion, which has been factchecked by newspapers across the state and discredited. Scott, however, remained unmoved before being "quickly ushered away by his media aide," according to CBS.
