The Washington Post's The Fix ^ | January 22, 2014 | Sean Sullivan

In early 2009, President Obama arrived in Florida to tout his stimulus plan. But it was a hug that stole the show.

Then-Republican Gov. Charlie Crist's embrace of the president became a kiss of death for his Senate bid. Nearly five years later, Crist is hugging Obama again — in a different way. Now a Democrat running for his old job, Crist has assembled a campaign roster chock full of former Obama hands. His apparent wager: 1) Some of Obama's success in the the perennial swing state (he won it twice) can be replicated this fall and 2) Advertising a team of Obama alumni is a good message to send to Democrats.

The latest Obama alumni to join Crist's team are Jim Messina and Ted Goff. Messina managed Obama's reelection bid while Goff directed the campaign's digital strategy....

Yeah, we already saw through your little “I’m a republican” scheme and that’s why you’re not a senator.

Let’s see, Republican Governor, backed by the mainstream GOP, embraces Obama...

Are we talking about Crist or Crist-ie?

Perhaps Crist is just proof there is really no difference between the two big parties.

They just change the words coming out of the mouths depending on the label next to their names.

Charlie Crist’s message to Democrats: I’m just like Barack Obama

so is Willard..

and Willard likes Chris..

Romney backs Christie as attacks, accusations mount over political retribution

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is stepping up for New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie amid more attacks and accusations this weekend about the bridge scandal and political retribution.

“I think Chris has handled this in a very effective way,” Romney told The Washington Post.

........

Romney also told The Post that Christie took swift and decisive action upon learning a member of his administration did something he found reprehensible.

“He faced the American people for two hours, took their questions,” Romney said. “He dismissed people who were responsible. He took personal responsibility. That’s what a leader does.”

Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts, also said he doesn’t think Christie chances of running for president in 2016 will be hurt by the controversy, should Christie choose to run.

Romney has waived off talk that his 2012 presidential bid was hurt by Christie embracing President Obama during Hurricane Sandy in the final days of the campaign, though fellow Republicans still say otherwise.

Oh, yes, of course he is. It’s an open secret in Florida, from what I’m told.
