Crists is exactly who we told people he is, party of one, in his own head — and of course his suntan bottle.

What is truly wrong with our politicians, it’s all about them.

Am I the only Floridian who thinks Crist will pull more votes from Meeks than Crist?

If Rubio loses, it will be because he expressed “concern” with regards to SB1070 in Arizona. That’s just code for him too being a shamnesty-supporting liberal.

Exactly. I’d say Crist’s cross will take votes from her boy, not Rubio (i.e. Florida teacher’s union employees weren’t going to vote for Rubio, they were going to vote for Meek.)

No, I am also a Floridian that thinks Crist will take away from Meeks not Rubio.

You have no shame. Rubio said in the same statement he hoped Obama didn’t use this to push amnesty.
Try reading his entire statement, not just what the MSM played.

Meek couldn’t win if Rubio and Crist dropped out.

What is truly wrong with our politicians?

What's wrong is that they represent the people.

You have to start to get your head around the idea that it's the universal franchise that is destroying our country.

When the pupil is ready, the teacher appears. It's that simple.

“I hope Congress and the Obama Administration will use the Arizona legislation not as an excuse to try and jam through amnesty legislation, but to finally act on border states’ requests for help with security and fix the things about our immigration system that can be fixed right now – securing the border, reforming the visa and entry process, and cracking down on employers who exploit illegal immigrants.”

I'm sorry... but when I see someone having "concern" over a good law, it makes me overtly think that they are a liberal in conservative clothing. Besides, 0bama is going to push for shamnesty anyway, SB1070 or not.

Why not say this is a good law and be done with it? Or say nothing at all?

Let me add to my previous comment.

"Charlie" Crist is a creation of the voters of Florida, and especially the stupid Republicans.

He is a nobody from nowhere with nothing to offer, except for a promise that if you vote Republican, the unicorns that sh*t skittles will play on YOUR lawn instead of the other guys lawn.

And he's not the only one, not by a damned sight.

I just hope that if Rubio wins, he doesn’t become another Mel Martinez. I just... ugh... am SO TIRED of the GOP supporting shamnesty (among other liberal things). Why can’t they stop being the Democrat-lite party and actually stand for something other than a watered-down version of the liberal agenda.

CHARACTER, a word seldom heard around politicians these days.

Blaming the people for your lake of same just makes it worse.

I do kind of agree but looking at the options, extreme liberal and way liberal, Rubio still has my vote. Martinez was terrible.
Illegal immigration and global warming are my two priorities when picking candidates.

Sadly you are right. Most elections turn into a contest of picking the least worst candidate. I really want to say that Rubio is a conservative. But when I hear things like "concern"... ugh.

If I was in Florida, I would still probably vote for him because of that criteria. I just hate the thought of potentially sending yet another pro-shamnesty candidate into public office.

Such a pretty woman, such a hateful heart. It became apparent when she spoke with such venom about Sarah Palin and I refuse to listen to anything she has to say.

Understand this, everyone:

There are dozens of elected Republicans out there who make Crist look like Reagan as far as his dedication to conservatism: In one state alone, you have Rick Perry, Kay Hutchison AND John Cornyn. Let alone the obvious ones like McCain and Graham. Hopefully people like Specter, Jeffords, Chafee, Bloomberg and Crist are waking people up to the saboteurs in our ranks. Thank God we got rid of the Doles, but watch out for the more insidiousones now out of office, but pulling strings, like Dick Armey, Grover Norquist, etc.

“Wh-wh-what?” you ask? Don’t Cornyn and Hutchison have strong ACU ratings? Yes, even the ACU has been infected, purposely ranking only the votes that make the Wall Street Republicans look good.

In 1980 the media cheered when John Anderson ran as an independent against Regan and Carter. They were certain that Anderson’s run would return Carter to the White House. My history book indicates that it didn’t quite turn out that way.
