Where the nuclear option is concerned, this short video shows who was against it then, and are for it now. Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) becomes the Democrat’s fortune teller for what then Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) called a ‘naked power grab,’ when she said . . .

Tampa community radio station WMNF 88.5 FM did their due diligence last week by informing their listeners on a candidate running for governor of the State of Florida. They broadcast a telephone interview with Dr. Farid Khavari in Miami.
There are two audio links below. The first one contains the interview. The show begins with listener comments about a previous show about oil drilling in Florida. The Khavari interview begins about 5 minutes into the show. The second link starts with the listener comments about the Khavari interview.
As Dr. Khavari explains his plans, his platform, you can also find it in writing on his website. You won’t find any smoke and mirrors there. You will find smoke and mirrors on the websites of his challengers, Alex Sink and Bill McCollum.
