Obama is "doing what's right for the country" Says Charlie Crist

Now why doesn't this surprise me?  Via The Corner:

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!

Dear Republican Establishment: Thanks for Nothing

Okay so we all saw Perry's big announcement today coming.  You can't hang around in last place in the polls for too long before you become a drain on the whole system.  I hate that Perry's bid played out the way that it did but what are you going to do?  Wasn't his time. 

Perry had improved a great deal since those first debates but maybe it was too little too late.  I think also that too many people listened to Rick Perry and heard George W. Bush and they just aren't over Bush yet.  Although I still think history will redeem Bush in the end.  Somewhat.

So where to go from here?

Pundette has gone to Rick Santorum.   Stacy McCain has been with Rick Santorum since Herman Cain dropped out.  Legal Insurrection is still with Newt.

I don't know where I'm going right now. 

To be honest, I just don't like any of them.  I don't. 

How can the Republican establishment have farked this up so badly?  That's a rhetorical question - you don't have to answer it.  It's because they're the Republican establishment.  All this PR about "we really do have a strong field of candidates" is just crap.  I don't even want to begin listing my grievances with these candidates.  Not enough time and it's all been said. 

Is it too late to get Michele Bachmann back?

I suspect that the Democrats are more afraid of Newt than anyone else and you can call me a conspiracy theorist if you want to but I think that's in part what pulled Marianne Gingrich back into the limelight.   I don't think Team Obama wants to debate Newt.

And when in the hell did debating skills become a prerequisite for running for president, anyway?  Speaking skills are important but so is executive experience, intelligence, foreign policy knowledge and experience, business acumen, character, integrity, and honor. 

Coming into this election I've always said that "a dust bunny could beat Obama," because WTF is he going to run on?  His record?  His job killing, debt hiking, food stamp raising, partisan, scandal ridden record?  Seriously

But here's the Republican establishment about to hand it right back to him. 

I'm going to stick my head in the oven.  Maybe there's a beer in there.  And a match.
