Fl. 2010: White House contradicts Crist on stimulus (Obama throws Crist under the bus)
The Hill, Washington, DC ^ | 2009-11-05 | Aaron Blake

The White House didn't do its erstwhile stimulus ally Charlie Crist much good on Thursday.

Asked about Crist's contention that he never endorsed the stimulus bill, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Crist was behind the package.

"I think his words at that event speak for themselves," Gibbs said. "I think he was very supportive of the legislation and supportive of the benefits it would have and has had for the state of Florida."

One has to wonder how anxious centrist Republicans will be to get behind Democratic initiatives now that the White House has thrown one of few GOP stimulus allies under the bus.

Crist is a RINO. This White House keeps a special bus just for them.

Note to RINOs looking to “work together” with Democrats: When you make a deal with the devil, you will always be betrayed.

I bet that bus was headed to Fire Island or San Francisco. The bus probably also pipes in Judy Garland songs.

Charlie Crist LIES!

He said FL does not have an ACORN problem and that the state had no business with ACORN.

He refuses to get FDLE (FL Dept of Law Enforcement aka state police) to investigate ACORN. They actually do a good job.

Not yet it hasn’t. But it certainly looks like the wheels are coming off, but Linseed and McCain and Kyl will try to repair the wagon.

I don’t care about his friendship with crooks. I care about his unfriendliness with the constitution and conservatism

Does anybody know what "event" this was? The original article doesn't identify it and doesn't include a link (grumble, grumble). I'd like to see what Crist actually said. Anybody know? Thanks.

Nevermind. I tracked down the comments — and all by myself, too! :)

Jeb Bush will endose Rubio and Crist will fold.

What gives you reason to think that? I've been out of Florida for 4 years, so not following things there as closely. Jeb was fair as a governor, but seems to me to be basically an establishment Republican.
