A Gentle Reminder to Sarah Palin: Marco Rubio
It's a Kwazy Life ^ | October 27, 2009 | Tom Lamb

On the face, this kid has it.

If he has no issues, this kid can win easily.

As for comments I made on the race being the testing ground for conservatives?

I still hold to the belief below on the Flordia Republican senate primary race being the testing ground for conservatives, but the New York race with Hoffman has added some interest in that it could become the catalyst in the conservative movement.

You have to hand it to the bigwigs within the Republican party. They know how to run a duplicitous campaign on smaller government.

It should be obvious now, that the Republican machine does not care about the message, it cares about winning.

Case in point, the Senate Republican primary that is unfolding in Florida.

Here you have the idiot Crist talking about how great the stimulus package is and wanting to become the senator of Florida under the Republican party banner.

Moreover, for the moment, you have a brand new poll showing the conservative losing to Crist.

But wait, is that a good sign? Not for the Republican party. The reason the Republican party is at odds right now is because it has no clear message.

It is being viewed as a duplicitous party. How can it be a party of smaller government when its bigwigs are pulling in behind Crist.

Just recently, a Gallup poll is showing the republicans making gains on the democrats. And Rasmussen has had gains at dead even between the parties, while the pundits continue to banter about how the republicans have to move from the right in order to win.

Given another poll done in February, on how independents view the stimulus package, I think Crist may be barking up the wrong tree when he is boasting about the benefits of the stimulus package and how he supports it.

As an aside, it would be interesting if Palin's PAC targets Florida and supports the conservative candidate. And even though there was no special election in Illinois, since the Democrats picked Burris, Illinois is setting to be a perfect storm for Palin's PAC, if Palin's PAC moves in on the state.

All in all, Florida will be the testing grounds for the conservative soul and may very well be the testing ground for Palin's PAC.

Call it fantasy politics if you want but it would certainly stir the political pot.

Given the race in New York and the demographics, politically speaking, Florida may still be the place to watch and see if Palin enters the political scene in Florida.

John McCain endorsed Crist and this Senate seat race would be (if an endorsement came in to Rubio)the one to give Palin's PAC its conservative wings.

If Crist wins the primary then the Social Democrats win Florida whoever wins the election next year. If the SD wins the SD party gets another senator. If Crist wins they get, along with Snowe, “bipartisanship.”

I’m with you and have heart, Marco has come from 40 points down last April tio just 14 in the latest Rasmussen poll. Where respondents knew both candidates names in a poll a few weeks ago, they were deadlocked at 48 each. All this with Marco courting the base and meeting people face to face. I predict by January Rasmussen will show this a dead heat if not a slight Marco lead.

I agree that SarahPAC involvement would be great, maybe the timing is not right to maximize the return. Lets get the NY 23rd done first and then make the moves to build upon its hopeful success. So many people beleived Obama’s lies during his campaign and those same people are still yearning for the change he will never deliver on. It is becoming all to apparent to them that the conservative cadidates have the message and the will to bring the change that will begin the purge of government elitists from both parties and a new leaner beginning for our country.

Crist’s lead over Rubio has dropped from 40% down to 24% ( He's had commercials criticizing Obama saying “we can't spend our way to prosperity”, yet he gave Obama that hug and took his stimulus money. It's been speculated that “the hug” is what is going to defeat him. Let's hope Chaingang Charlie is sent packing.
