Skip to comments.Marco Rubio: Mitt Romney is no Charlie Crist (Claims Willard is a Conservative)
Posted on 01/24/2012 11:39:25 PM PST by Kazan
Newt Gingrich's decision today to bash Mitt Romney for hiring former Charlie Crist loyalists and employees doesn't seem to be sitting well with Sen. Marco Rubio, who drove Crist out of the Republican Party before beating him at the polls in 2010.
Said Rubio: "Mitt Romney is no Charlie Crist. Romney is a conservative. and he was one of the first national Republican leaders to endorse me. He came to Florida, campaigned hard for me, and made a real difference in my race."
Except that he turned against the Republican party during the Reagan/Gingrich revolutions of the 1980s and 90s.
Mitt left the GOP, he went from supporting liberal republicans, to supporting only democrats, he fund even raised democrat.
Romney reregistered Republican in October 1993 to run for office, he kept fighting conservatism and supporting the hard left for years.
Romney does have an inner agenda, he wants to avenge his family, by destroying the conservative republicans.
Sometimes you just flat out like someone. I like Rubio.
She said that she was not interested in becoming Mitt Romney's veep, all of her responses and lack of anything positive to say were focused on Romney.
No matter what he claims he will do in the future, it seems to be the opposite of what he has done in the past.
And Rubio flat out likes Romney.
I figure anything can happen in the coming months. When Obama starts feeling threatened things might get even crazier.
I have a pretty good handle on Mitt’s past, and I am not aware of anything conservative in that past.
He was against Reagan, against the Republicans and the Contract with America, he was against the Senate conservatives, the “Jesse Helms types” as he called them.
He was supporting liberal democrats in their races against republicans, he meant it when he found Ted Kennedy too conservative, too timid on some social issues.
Marco is more than a Hispanic Conservative. He is amazing and fearless conservative. Mitt was popular in FLA in 2008 among us conservatives. When Gov. Crist endorsed McCain just before the FLA Primary we all felt betrayed because there was no one that would sell out to the Dems like McCain and we all new he would not fight Obama. Mitt came back to help Marco early when Rubio was traveling alone in 2010. By not endorsing Mitt now is bad news for Mitt. Maybe the word came from Jeb that Mitt was fading but I can tell you, many down here did endorse Mitt and will have to be incorporated in a Gingrich General Campaign
If Newt wins I see Jeb getting in and Rubio endorsing him. I think this is why we're not seeing endorsements in Florida right now. The party will not go down with Newt when we have a winnable election.
The party of TARP has already gone down with their loser candidate old Lord McCain. We the people threw them a life line when we gave these turds the control of the people's house November 2010 and they have played golf with the chief. The Bush family are part of the problem.
Suzanna is closer with Sarah. Shes no Mittbot
That makes him traitorous.
You mean the establishment liberals will do absolutely anything to fight conservatism in America.
The "tent" just simply can't be that big if the GOP is to stand for anything.
If he is conservative, then he was wrong to endorse Mitt Romney.
November will be a sad time for FR.
Good thing he graduated to DC, DISNEYLAND FOR BUSYBODIES, before he could participate in taking more of my personal freedom away.
Don't worry Marco, once we finish driving a stake through FLIP MYTH SLICK WILLARDS heart, we will be keeping eyes on you , yes indeed.
guess he has to come out for Romney. I understand but, yer guy is a frickin liar and a chameleon and a changeling and, and, and,.....
Stick a fork in it.
(now I don’t have to deal with your NBC status)
Keep talking though. You are brilliant and I luv you otherwise.
Why ? Were you guys masochists or something ?
