For example, Rose notes, Scott attributed his success and personal wealth to John Moniz, who he calls his mentor.
He says the fast-food franchise owner taught him the method “thinking my way out of poverty.”
“I’ve heard Scott make this statement before, but don’t have a clue as to what he means,” Rose says. “He to do something besides ‘think’ in order to climb out of poverty.
“And not only do we need things like positive educational environments, but positive healthcare and employment, too, in order to ‘think’ straight. Scott is against the improvements we need in those fields.”
It was Scott’s closing to his brief address that caught Rose’s attention even more, though, when he sang the well-known refrain from a timeless Ray Charles classic: “Hit the road, jack/and don’t you come back no more.”
“This more than anything draws back the curtain on the agenda of Scott and the Republican Party as a whole,” Rose says.
“In fact, it could be the theme song for the whole convention, because another verse reads: ‘Don’t care if you do cause it’s understood/you ain’t got no money, you just ain’t no good.’
“It couldn’t be more fitting for him and the GOP,” Rose concludes.
