he said it alright, he sounded like a Dem and still backs the spending bill, said he would vote for health care, the man is toast.

All Crist could do is to attack Rubio

my thoughts too

Crist amazed me as all he could do was attack Rubio on haircuts etc , then in a republican primary he says he would vote for the health care bill, the big spending bill.

It was amazing to see a man who defends what he would vote for and thinks he would win in this day and age.

Instead of running away form his past comments and backing bozo he defended it and said he’d still do it.

Crist has to go ASAP

The Republican nomination in Florida will be a telling sign of things to come if Rubio wins.

nail on head ref the villages,.

yankees who are republican are more like Dems down here so maybe that is why they still want Crist.

Also why the hell do they move here and carry on voting like they did up north and refuse to change their votes or voting patterns.

take away the 3 big yankee counties and this state will never go blue

Two FPL plants. He killed 5 more right after that. There is a reason why unemployment is so high in this state. He drove out manufacturing and industry because of the high cost of doing business. Crist doesn’t like coal, but it kept the price volatility down. He likes natural gas but we have to import all of it from Texas and Alabama.

The guy is a libtard ecofascist.

don’t count on that, most yankee Dems who move down here are so stuck in their ignorant ways that they will never change their voting pattern...

It is amazing that the 3 big yankee counties down south went for bozo because they have always voted for the D.

Tell them that they will have medicare and SS cut and they still will not believe it

Marco Rubio does fundraising “bombs”. Try googling for one of those and there’s always his facebook page which is really cool. If that doesn’t help, let me know and I’ll try to find links for you. If you find the right link, please put it on this thread for all Americans cuz we need Marco Rubio. Thanks, FV

Frrepers gathered at the Caribe Royale in Orlando this morning to watch the debate. Raucus bunch!

As I recall, Crist said "there is a clear distinction between the two of us". Ya think!

Crist also said he hasn't raised taxes. Property taxes up! Drivers licenses up! Tags up! All more than doubled! Crist: “Not a tax, but a fee!” Forgot to mention the unemployment fee going from $8 a person to $110 per person, although the legislature has put a hold on that.

He's goin' down! (politically, that is)

Crist acknowledged bk to Mike Wallace that he agreed with ARLEN SPECTER. That’s disgraceful but at least Crist was too stupid to shut up.

They met at a Tampa airport about a month ago. They held hands but Charlie skipped Obama’s townhall full of Obama zombies. It was reported that CRIST HAD LUNCH IN S. FLORIDA WITH JOE BIDEN. What else do we need to know?

A yankee liberal democrat filed and took over the “Tea Party” name. He is trying to hijack the party by making confusing people to support his group monetarily. It’s pissing people off, but he did it legally. This is the group that Charlie Crist was talking about today. It was totally setup by chicago Dem operatives.

Fla lost over 200,000 jobs but the stimulus saved 80K jobs. His sisters are in education. Crist is a RINO. Rubio brought up Fla's high unemployment rate. Crist can talk about Rubio's haircut all he wants or his mini-van repairs. That stuff is all half truths, not even worth explaining it again.

Crist has nothing on Rubio ad when Crist says Rubio made 300K as an attorney, that's an accusation? In the free enterprise system, even attorneys have a right to an income. Our legislators only have one session and they work in the private sector the rest of the year. Crist attacked that Rubio works in the private sector.

Crist believes that making money is wrong and public service is pure. JUST LIKE OBAMA.

Crist said he was “running as a republican”. That statement can be correct in any event. When he loses, he can say “I ran as a republican and now I’m running as an independent.” The clumsy, spoiled Crist cannot be trusted. He’s Florida’s Obama.

1. made an illegal deal with the Seminole Tribe for casinos. 2. made an illegal deal with US Sugar to buy back their land for millions upon millions of dollars. Charlie likes to make illegal deals that he doesn’t understand that thankfully don’t pass muster at the legislature.

I had a friend, notice had and she was living in rich upper class chappaqua and said she would vote for obama because he would be a better friend to Israel.

I still bet she thinks that and blames B for being right wing.

Yankee Dems are so messed up in the head that they can not even see that their votes have ruined their old states and yet they still come south ruining their new state

Crist, Greer, and other “un-named” RINO state rep republicans should be investigated by the AG McCollum.

By the way...the unnamed RINOs live in the Miami area.

“Crist is a RINO. Before you tell us to leave because we are for Rubio, if the founders of Free Republic decide Crist supporters MUST GO, it shall be.”

Jeeze, I’m all with you on that. Maybe I’m communicating badly. Essentially what I was (originally) trying to figure out is how the Republican Senatorial Committee looks at candidates. In Florida you have two candidates, with either one as a shoe-in unless they’re caught with a pre-pubescent boy (assume Crist knows enough to hold that back, for now)...one of them essentially matches the voting record of Republicans in the Senate, while the other one is WAAAAYYYY to the left. So which one should make sense...clearly Rubio...who do they select...Crist.

IT MAKES NO SENSE.

There are way more than two Republican candidates. Bob Smith...Republican then Independent then Republican again from New Hampshire(?) is running too.

Initially the Florida RSC picked Crist but they had to with-hold their endorsement when Rubio and everyone else complained. This is when the pressure was put on the Florid R-chairman (Greer) to resign.

If I were a betting man I would give Rubio 3:1 over Crist based on these 45 minutes. But, I do not know Florida at all except that it’s flat, muggy and buggy.

We saw that question supposedly from a Tea Party leader and scratched our heads.

We’ve been to dozens of Tea Parties across the State and have NEVER heard of her, not once.

Plus, I’ve yet to go to a single Tea Party or 9-12 event where Rubio isn’t fully supported.

Florida conservatives are in unison, that was Fox pulling some fast one.

The "fair haired" governor was the choice of the Senate committee, to the chagrin of most Republicans, definitely us conservatives, in Florida. He was shoved down our throats. Rubio is a terrific conservative and a breath of fresh air.

If he looked slipper it was wondering where the hell Crist was going with it.

Rubio has been more than aboveboard with releasing his records. Crist has accused him of getting “back waxes” on the GOP Credit Card.

The attack are ridiculous and have done more damage to Crist then to Rubio - I can’t understand why Crist keeps using them. Except for the fact, it is all Crist has.

As I mentioned on the Sunday Morning Talk Show thread:

On a number of occasions during the debate, actually a pummeling by Rubio, I noted:

Did everyone just see that “Oh shit, I just got caught” look on Chollies face?

"Took over the Tea Party name"... do you mean just in Florida, or for the entire US?

Sounds like that phoney "Tea Party" candiate Scott Ashjian in Nevada, who is running against Harry Reid. If enough people are confused, they WILL split the vote. I think that's what largely happened in the infamous NY-23 race.

Beats me as the contrast between the two couldn't be more obvious. When you think of a typical pol, Crist fits the bill.

Waited to watch the rerun at 2:00 p.m. and it was interrupted by Obama's speech in Afganistan so I clicked it off IMMEDIATELY. Catching up on what I missed now.

I had made a commitment to be a volunteer for Rubio at the Sarasota County Fair!

The response was fantastic....people buying MARCO tee shirts & bumper stickers.

One Dem (she didn't want to change her registration) told me that she would vote for him in November.

Crist said, “The choice is clear”

And we Floridians know it's Marco Rubio!
