“That he’s a RINO.......just like they are.”

Actually they’re not. There are very issues that Cornyn (the leader of the bunch that selected Crist) is RINO on. That’s also true for at least 75% of the Republican Senators...they generally vote good.

My thought is that Crist was considered “electable”, whereas Rubio was less known throughout the state.

But still...you have to draw the line at some point - if Crist would have voted for that health care monster, then it is MUCH BETTER to simply have a Democrat there...rather than give them that token Republican vote they so desperately wanted.

When a professional baseball team looks for players, they don’t go out looking for someone who is “streaky” or can’t be counted on to be swinging for the fence before every pitch. We shouldn’t be voting for representatives who try to get it right once in a while. Go for the park at every pitch.

The people in this country are waking up in a big way and are becoming very cogniscent in they have the power of term limits at the ballot box. This has never been more illustrative than the political climate today.

This kind of statistic is meaningless. The question is, do they vote good when the vote is close. You would find an amazing tendency to bipartisanship by RINO’s when the vote is close and their vote actually matters.

The 75% is cover voting for the rubes back home. It is votes on bills that are already decided.

I’ve just about had it with Cornyn.....sometimes I don’t trust him any more than I do McCain. Hutchinson got her clock cleaned in Texas for gooberner and somewhere there is a REAL Conservative to take Cornyn down.......(somewhere).
