And my dream ticket for 2012 is Allen West/Marco Rubio!
My Dream Ticket for 2012 is Palin / Rubio
Don’t forget Graham, Crist called him one of his role models.
Really? He (Crist) said he still supported the Stimulus Bill?
He also said very clearly he will NOT run as an independent.
Well, I would NOT say “very clearly”.....he hedged, he dipped and he ducked. I bet anything he runs as an Indy. Any takers?
Bob Smith terminated his campaign three days ago.
Right, and we need a little investigative work on that one! I didn't catch the name of the “so called FL tea party leader. How much you want to bet her friends are Doug Guetzloe, Fredric O’Neal and Nicholas Egoroff?
Another little tidbit from the UCF Arena yesterday....Seems Glenn Beck promoted the name of Peg Dunmire as a Florida “Tea Party Party” candidate running against Grayson! So there goes Glenn mentioning a Guetzloe, O’Neal and Egoroff “special candidate”! Guess Glenn didn't have his research team check that candidate out!
WE FLORIDA PATRIOTS WHO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON WILL PUT AN END TO THAT WHEN WE ELECT DAN FANELLI ON AUGUST 24TH TO SEND GRAYSON PACKING IN NOVEMBER!
Freepers, Please help Lt.Comd.Dan Fanelli with a donation if you can. You know what he is up against with the Grayson Socialist Machine! Check Dan Fanelli out at the link below and find out why he is the best constitutional conservative to face Grayson!http://electdan2010.com/
Crist-Tanya” “My skate broke. Can I have a do over?”
People should start their own tea parties but with other names that can’t be hijacked the way tea party has been. (code name operation TP.)
“My Dream Ticket for 2012 is Palin / Rubio”
I wouldn’t mind seeing Sarah as the “Press Secretary”.
Our country needs Allen West and Marco Rubio!
I could certainly live with an Allen West /Marco Rubio ticket.
Crist should have responded that “Yes, I have run for five different offices in 12 Years. But that’s okay, as I will be running for President in 2012 and it will be six offices in 14 years.”
Crist looked pathetic today. I didn’t bother to watch the whole thing but it is over for him. Charlie, be classy about it and just start closing down shop . Resistance is futile.
I wonder if Allen West has a chance against Ron Klein? If there ever was a year that West could do it, it would be this year. Tough call.
There WILL be numerous "False Flag" attacks mounted in the name of the "Tea Party"! It is an amorphous group which is easily invoked by democrat saboteurs!!!
It was a pretty amazing debate. Crist really showed his true colors today. A phony shallow Obama loving RINO
I really think Crist has never got over the fact that Rubio simply did not back away and hand the keys to the Florida Senate seat like he had planned.
Even if Mickey Mouse was Crist opponent, I'd vote for the mouse
Because we have the Tea Party Party, the registered group formed by liberal Dems and Rubio wants no part of them.
He was right, the REAL Tea Parties do not have leaders, they are not organized and he’s gone to dozens.
Most of my many conversations with Rubio have been at a Tea Party event.
I have met him a couple of times and he is sharp!
Yeah what was up with him pursing his lips? The name “twinkle toes” seems even more appropriate now.
Can’t believe the gall of Crist in saying he didn’t increase taxes but insisted taxes on cigarettes is a “user fee”. When Wallace brought up drivers license fees that have gone up with 18 million drivers I was dumbfounded Crist stuck by the same answer that it is a “user fee” and that not everyone needs to drive. How clueless/stupid is this guy?
How would he save face in a few months if he runs as an Independant? Wallace pretty much gave him no breathing room to be able to flip-flop. Crist would be a fool to run as an Independant unless he turns into a mole and then switches parties.
If Rubio becomes a very good Senator, then that’s his ceiling. It’s incredibly difficult for a legislator to win an election as an executive unless he’s running against another legislator. And if he becomes a very good Senator, why would you want him to leave?
Any idea why Jeb initially endorsed Crist? The 2 seem more different than can be.
Same reason Reagan endorsed Bush in 88.
imho, Crist’s statement that he would have joined the only 3 Republicans that voted for Obama’s Stimulus bill sealed his fate......he’s done.
IMO, Crist is totally disingenuous. It's all about him. He just wants to play with the "big boys." He's outgrown state gov't! LOL!
I don't like him. Surprise!
Crist should be toast. Bennett in UT may be toast and ditto Specter (hopefully) in PA.
McCain has to go. He is more evil than Crist and has caused FAR more damage. I donated to JD Hayworth today. Others should if they can afford it.
“So go vote 3rd party, if it somehow clears your conscience, and let your kids and grandkids try to clean up the mess that youre leaving, by empowering even more Democrats.”
Actually, I don’t think that’s the solution. I don’t mind Scott Brown at all even though he is a liberal republican. But we aren’t going to do any better in MA.
But the way the money guys control the party is putting RINO’s out of the primaries with lots of money and establishment backing over perfectly good and solidly electable conservatives in states that will elect a conservative.
So the solution is what’s happening in FLA. The R’s are going to nominate a likely very conservative guy over a squish that got all the money and establishment backing. The question for the general election is whether the party establishment will turn on Rubio to punish him for knocking off their guy. They could make the general election a lot closer than it needs to be.
But in general, conservative states and districts should be represented by conservatives. Had the party establishment allowed that to occur during the past twenty years instead of aggressively twisting the party to the left, the R’s would not have had the electoral disaster we had in 2006 and 2008, in my opinion.
But make no mistake, I’m thankful for the Scott Browns. But I’m not thankful when the party establishment forces the nomination of a Crist over a better and more conservative candidate in a state that will elect that conservative. The solution is to not let the money guys control the party. They will always pay for moderates, regardless of the desires of their districts.
This is a democrat operative hijacking the conservative movement trying to split the ticket. Glenn beck is confused. Don’t fall for it.
I do not respect Glenn Beck for his treatment of the so called “birthers”. Glen says over and over that folks should question their elected officials in government....but he does not want anyone to question Obama about his constitutional qualifications. Glenn could have just said he does not believe there are problems with Obama’s constitutional qualifications and dropped it. Instead he called the folks wanting answers to simple questions crazy cooks and worse.
If Glenn promotes ANY candidate running as a candidate of the so called “Tea Party Party” of Florida, then I know he is NOT helping our cause. Anyone who checks out the group who managed to register that “tea party party” with the state of Florida will know they are NOT patriots.
Just another thing that makes me wonder about the Bush family.
Exactly what do you wonder about?
I do that with Chris Matthews' name sometimes. Not intentional of course.
I agree, Crist set a new bar for cluelessness.
You were at CPAC? I'm sorry we didn't meet in person! :o)
I couldn't disagree more about "CPAC going downhill". My husband and I and four friends attended our 8th consecutive CPAC last month and - as usual - it was informative and enjoyable (except for that bogus straw poll).
I agree Marco Rubio's speech was a high point, but there were also amazing speeches/appearances by Michele Bachmann (her speech reduced us to tears), Col. Allen West (running for Congress in Florida's 22nd district), Sen. Jim DeMint, John Bolton, Andrew Breitbart, J.C. Watts, J.D. Hayworth, Phyllis Schlafly, Leader John Boehner, Rep. Joshua Mandel (OH), Jason Mattera (author of Obama Zombies), Mike Pence, VP Dick Cheney and daughter Liz Cheney, Rick Santorum, Amity Shlaes (author of The Forgotten Man), Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Gov. Bob McDonnell (VA), Newt Gingrich, Bob McEwen (former OH Congressman), John Fund, Ann Coulter, Michael Barone, Dick Armey, Sen. Scott Brown, Herman Cain, Eric Cantor, Rep. Steve King, Hon. Michael Williams (TX), Hon Chuck DeVore (the conservative running for Barbara Boxer's seat in CA), Star Parker, Rep. Tom Price (GA), Hon. John Ashcroft, Rep. Darrell Issa, Anita MonCrief, former ACORN employee and brave whistleblower (and newly converted conservative!), Steven Crowder of PJTV, Jonah Goldberg, speeches by numerous members of Tea Parties, including Dana Loesch of the St. Louis Tea Party, the list goes on... And - like him or not - we greatly enjoyed Glenn Beck's speech.
At CPAC 2010 there were numerous panels, side-sessions, film screenings and the Tea Party Express (of recent Searchlight, Nevada fame) threw a "tea party" in the atrium of the Marriott, free for anyone who happened to walk into the hotel... they rocked the place!
In no way has CPAC been going downhill, IMO...
Ping your list for Jeff Head, please!
No, c-span actually covered CPAC but after Rubio, imo, c-span chose to broadcast the dullest parts of the conference to broadcast on purpose. It’s just like w/anti-tax rallys. When rallys were in DC, c-span kept replaying Obama’s speech on that day instead of showing any tea partiers. c-span has a liberal filter and they are always trying to help Obama.
There you go. C-span ONLY showed some housekeeping sessions instead of the speakers you listed. See how television distorts? They didn’t show the best and the brightest on tv. I don’t remember Glenn either but I think by the time he came on, I left. Let’s blame it on c-span. Works for me.
Besides, in this new era, lots of things Fox News would have broadcast, they are SKIPPING to do fluff stories on animal rescues and Hollywood cheating.
Who can help us expose the corrupt Fla tea party before we end up with Crist or Meek as US Senator? or Obama re-elected in 2012? No telling what a crooked tea party could do.
However, there's a radio spot against Crist about his deal with big sugar - it's not about a haircut and a mini-van, or phantom slush funds. It's about substantial funds. It hasn't gotten past the legislature. Crist is trying to bypass the legislature just like Obama does. Crist makes deals without permission of the lawmakers.
have there been any reports about Crist’s deals with the rail companies?
The media here is not reporting on deals with like CXS, etc. Lots of the rail companies here. There’s going to be light rail from Tpa to Orlando through Polk County cities. Paula Dockery is running for Governor and she’s wheeling and dealing re: rail companies forever. I don’t trust her either. Crist sugar deal, Indian casino deal, rail - crickets chirping.
Yes, and Paula Dockery seems to have connections with the group involved in the registered “Tea Party Party”. She is not one we patriots want to support. Bill McCollum is getting my support.
As for the news getting out about Doug Guetzloe, Fredric ONeal and Nicholas Egoroff, it will be coming out when all the sources are verified fully.
