In a rare television interview, former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who left the Republican Party during his unsuccessful 2010 U.S. Senate bid, told Chuck Todd on “The Daily Rundown” that he’d consider voting for President Obama in November.
“Consider? Sure, I would consider that,” said Crist. “I really think he’s sincere and genuine. I think we have a lot time, a lot of issues to talk about, but I think, in his heart, he’s trying to do what’s right for the country overall.”
Remember, this blog was founded specifically because in 2009 the NRSC supported Gov. Charlie Crist in a Senate primary against rising conservative star Marco Rubio which enraged conservatives across the nation.
Charlie Crist has just validated the very existence of this blog. "...he's trying to do what's right for the country overall"? Seriously?
Note to Mr. Crist:
Please explain why Solyndra was "right for the country"?
Why was Fast 'n Furious "right for the country"?
Why was it "right for the country" to nearly triple entitlement spending?
How is slashing defense spending "right for the country"?
How are those unintended consequences of the power-grabbing Obamacare legislation "right for the country"?
I don't think the folks around the Gulf of Mexico think the drilling moratorium was "right for the country".
Need I go on?
Charlie Crist is free to vote for whomever he chooses, of course, just as conservatives were free to reject Crist's poorly camouflaged liberal tripe.
And to the NRSC, remember, "Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining."
Not one red cent!
