Rick Scott Blamed Barack Obama for the Government Shutdown

From the Tampa Bay Times, 09/30/2013:

Gov. Rick Scott accused President Barack Obama today of not showing enough leadership to end Congress’s impasse over the budget and avoid a government shutdown. Scott is siding with Republican members of the U.S. House, who say the president refused to negotiate with them to resolve the deadlock.

Of course what the GOP wants is something Obama is unwilling to do: agree to further delays to the Affordable Care Act. Reading Scott’s criticism of Obama gave us a bit of déjà vu. Isn’t Scott criticizing Obama in much the same way he was criticized earlier this year?
