Charlie Crist should never be allowed to hold public office again! It is clear that he does not serve the people but himself. He will say anything and do anything to gain office and all of the political power perks. He did not serve the people of Florida well as governor and is just a plain selfish, sore-loser!
"Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican-turned-independent, continued his political makeover Sunday by endorsing President Barack Obama’s re-election and calling him “the right leader for our times.”
Now there's a lesson to learn here kids....all RINOS (and I mean, ALL) eventually become turncoats and then embrace full-blown liberalism....remember that. It happens every time.
That's why I worry about Obamney.
Just another POS politician looking to feather his nest. No need for core values or even a conscience. Apply here. No experience necessary.
Another political hack at the DNC. Oh Please, what possibly could he say that would sound authentic? RINOs are on the endangered species list and are sure to go extinct.
Wow, could you imagine if he was as Senator Crist and not Senator Rubio? It would have been tragic - but luckily the people of Florida saw through this charlatan.
I doubt he will carry any more weight or influence with the Demos than he did with conservatives.
Not that he isn't left thinking enough, but they won't trust him until he rapes or drowns a woman, or gets a little body fluid on her dress.
Sounds like a bottomfeeder RINO to me. These type of politicians are dangerous to our party. He was probably a "mole" all along...LOL!
He lost to Rubio because he is a POS politician.
Crist has been nothing but a two-faced RINO his whole time in office. He is like the rest of the RINOs when they get embarrassed for being who they are they respond like a liberal by calling names and making fools of themselves. I still question the rumor that Crist has a tatoo of Obama on his tongue. If anyone knows for sure, please confirm or deny. Thanks.
Governor Christ never responded to my letter in 2009 after the passing of my mother. Her uncle, the late U S Senator and former Florida Governor Spessard Holland-D was a highly respected man and statesman. My family will be supporting Mr. Romney.
You know, it's ironic: whenever the most anti-establishment Republicans (i.e., conservatives) lose primaries, they are gracious in defeat and support the victor; I can't remember one instance where this wasn't the case. In contrast, every election season, establishment GOP players lose primaries and run as independents, or switch parties -- whatever it takes to cling to or obtain power. And down the road, such characters as Charlie Crist blow with the political wind. Based on everything he supposedly stood for as a Republican, Crist should be thrilled that Mitt Romney is the GOP nominee. Yet he isn't; he's for the other side. Why? Because there was never anything that Crist "stood for" as a Republican. He has no bedrock philosophy with regard to proper governance or limits of federal power, so his allegiance to any given politician or entire party is determined by one thing: the potential for power and connections for himself.
It's amazing, this man was governor of Florida and had so many people in the GOP establishment go to bat for him in the primary, then when he lost he back-stabbed them all. And now this: arguing that Obama is good for the middle class. I can understand how Democrat loyalists would have to make such a statement, though it must be a struggle to make it with a straight face. Crist, though, was on the sidelines. When was the last time anyone heard a peep out of him before now? This endorsement he volunteers.
Whether it's Huckabee going to bat for Akin, or the GOP brass standing behind turncoats like Specter and Crist, you have to hand it to the Republican Party -- they earn their "Stupid Party" rep. That said, I think Crist's endorsement is about as valuable as a pile of dog poop. Scoop is right: Anyone, be they Democrat or Republican, would be a fool to trust this man.
I saw him covered on C-SPAN once. That he not be seen perspiring during the interview, his staff set up a fan to blow on Crist. He is a John Edwards, pretty-boy narcissist.
The DNC may be desperate to look normal if they have invited CC to the convention for a speech. I know it is an oxymoron in regard to CC and normal but what else does the DNC have to lose. All they can do is go up from where they are at and if a supposed R can be projected as a defecting from his roots because it is "extreme" it would seem all the better for them.
Good riddance and honestly if the rest of the RINO's would be willing to follow suit, I would second mortgage my home and fly them all to NC for the convention.
It is not only CC that the DNC has invited to their convention but also:
"According to the Charlotte DNC homepage, ‘The Jumah at the 2012 DNC’ will welcome some 20,000 Muslims to Charlotte, DEM-dubbed an “official event”.
"Obama Campaign Will Hold Muslim Jumah at DNC – But Won’t Let Catholic Cardinal Lead Prayer"
Happy to chip in on that excellent idea, Puritan! We could have a fund-raiser, you wouldn't need a mortgage, guaranteed.
Crist has a wind sock on the roof of his house which he has to check daily to tell him which way he heads in the morning.
Hey NY! Our yard's flooded :-D They just showed on the news (not sure where it was) but someone found a jellyfish in their yard! OY!
lol. I know what you mean. Our whole yard's a moat. I haven't even bothered trying to go down the road, I know my car probably wouldn't float.
Whew! I can't remember getting so much rain. This is one heck of a large storm. I have a moat around my house. Gonna need either a boat or a drawbridge.
Are they sure it's a jellyfish and not a Democrat? Neither have a backbone... Can be hard sometimes to tell them apart! :-)
I can't stand Turncoat Charlie. I couldn't stand him when he was the FL Gov. I always saw him as a fake and dangerous. Turncoat Charlie should move up to the Northeast or California and be among his own kind.
Nah, guys like Crist may be unhappy, but they don't have trouble sleeping at night for guilt. Their lost sleep comes from angst over lost power.
Excellent point. Those that put their finger to the wind to see which way it is blowing are those who built their houses on sand. The storms come and they are ruined. Those with working moral compasses don't have that kind of angst. No need to pickle themselves with booze to get to sleep at night. No need to smoke dope to kill the pain of failure. Crist looks like the latter.
My jaw actually dropped when I saw the headline. Yet, what's so surprising after all? What an ass - finally going home to the Ass Party.
No offense to donkeys, sweet creatures.
One part politician, two parts traitor, seven parts whore. A purrrfect ten.
Ok, what has two index fingers and is a shameful skank?
Well now, where are those wizards of smart who condemned Todd Akin, who by all measures is a true conservative, ridiculing the fake phony Charlie Chris. Charlie Chris is a disgrace to the republican party and as Chris Christie said about Todd Akin, he should leave the party. I am so over these hypocrites including Scott Brown!
