Charlie Crist pounds Gov Scott for 'shameless, mean spirited' voter purge
BizPacReview.com ^ | July 21, 2012 | Michele Kirk

Posted on 07/21/2012 9:59:19 AM PDT by T.O.K.

Former Florida governor, Charlie Crist leaves little to the imagination in his op-ed published Friday in the Washington Post. He could not be clearer about his thoughts on Florida’s non-citizen voter purge and legal battles that have ensued as a result of Governor Scott’s willingness to stand up to the federal government. Calling the purge un-American and mean spirited the letter adds fuel to Florida’s political fires and rumor that Crist will soon be a card carrying Democrat, poised to challenge Scott in 2014.

What? I cannot imagine how removing illegal listings from a voting roster could be mean spirited. Like so many claims from the far left fringe, this seems to be babble in a different language.

We always knew he was a liberal RINO. Might as well be a Democrat.

Some people might accuse Charlie Crist of a shameless, mean-spirited charade as a heterosexual.

When Crist lowered the flag to half staff for a druggie who died at her own hand...then was the end of Charlie...

Crist doubles down on stupid. Removing ineligible (and mostly illegal voters) from the roles is Unamerican?

Scott is getting a bad rap here in Florida because he doesn’t have the politician personality. But he’s reduced the unemployment rate from 12% to 8.6% in less than 2 years, and he’s done it while balancing the budget and not increasing taxes.

I didn’t get how he could write it with a straight face either, but then I realized he is thinking with the logic(or lack there of) of a Dem.

“Crist will soon be a card carrying Democrat, poised to challenge Scott in 2014.”

With the voting rolls purged of dead and illegal voters, Crist’s success seems unlikely.

Charlie, you can find relevance for your life... breath deep and repeat after me... "O-Wha...Ta-Goo...Si-Am" keep repeating until the meaning becomes clear to you, you will then find happiness in discovering what the rest of us already know...

There is nothing “shameless, mean spirited” about telling mean spirits that they are dead and not allowed to vote anymore. Same thing with foreign nationals. If foreigners feel the need to vote, they should go home and vote there. Crist is a dork.

Charlie Christ is a nobody now who frittered away Florida’s scanty cash on a sugar company’s land in the everglades. He is a total wack job trying to con people into thinking he’s not a sodomite.

He lost to Rubio for Senate and his chances of winning his old gov. seast back is slim to none with Rick Scott actually improving things here in Florida. Twinkletoes Crist got his ass handed to him in 2010 after losing to Rubio in the primary, and then Crist did the unthinkable, by running as an independant (democrat in reality) and even with 2 dems running against Rubio, they both lost by double digit margins. Crist would even have a worse faring for himself if he was stupid enough to run in 2014.

He's a liberal hack with his finger to the wind that pretends to be Republican just to get elected.

I think his last name is Bloomberg or Romney.

FU Charlie Crist! Just stay with Morgan & Morgan, the lawyer firm you work for and a huge supporter of Bowbama. He still doesn’t get it! Irrelevant in Florida since 2010...maybe before. Oh, did I mention that Crist also gave us John McNuts?

I think the whole point is that Crist is planning on running as a Democrat, and he sees his voter block diminishing.

Ditto. And Crist is such an idiot. IF he had just bowed out of the Senate race and supported Rubio, he might have made a deal with Florida Repubs to run against that idiot democrat senator, Nelson. ...as stupid does.

“Charlie WHO?”
************************************
That would be Charlie HASBEEN. The ungrateful creature never replied with a Thank You card after I had an Amazon order for a Men’s Back Hair Waxing Kit sent to him care of the Governor’s mansion a few years back when he was running against Rubio in the Senatorial primary.

He really is a very confused, weird person.

Chrlst is POed because Scott is reducing his “base” for the next election. And, if he does get on the RAT ballot for dog catcher or whatever, the RATS will be proving once again that they are the crazy party!

the votes came in. These GOP DC hacks need to be the next to go... starting with McConnell.

There is a persistent pattern, through the Left that needs to be understood. When the Congress enacted the Teddy Kennedy immigration "reform" act in 1965, they deliberately favored those from lands that had contributed the least to formulation of an American character; the whole concept was in the form of an apology to anyone who differed from the American mainstream.

When President Clinton, in his last State of the Union, predicted a predominantly non-White America by the middle of this Century, it was not with regret. He welcomed the idea.

When the Democrats rallied to a man, whose formative years were spent in Indonesia, not America, as their Presidential candidate in 2008, many who reflect the mindset that I am describing, became almost orgasmic over the choice.

What we witness is the mindset of the person who desperately wants to see the very concept of the nation, race, tribe or even multi-generational community replaced with a sense of universal, interchangeable humanity. Are they traitors? Not in their eyes. Are they compulsion driven or enlightened; neurotic or rational?

I have been engaging with this type all of my life since at least my Freshman year at a very far Left college. They have no rational arguments--None! But their numbers have multiplied because so few on our side are willing to really cut to the chase & confront the underlying absurdity of the Chnalie Crists, Teddy Kennedys & the like.

This has nothing to do with whether some of those being cut from the voter roles are good or bad people. It has everything to do with whether we have the sense & intelligence required to preserve our own cultural heritage. From the history of the half century, it does not appear that we do. Gov. Scott is not "mean wpirited." Charlie Crist is in a form of all too pervasive "La La land." What is needed now, is a carefully articulated challenge to his underlying premises, by those on our side not afraid to be called a lot of nasty names.

Those nasty names are aboslutely, the only argument the Charlie Crists have.

Your chant originated from the tribe of Dimwit, mine originated from the tribe of Nitwit, both on the same continent, one of east coast origins and the other, west. However, both can be construed to mean the same thing, roughly...

If the Democrats let Crist in the door, more fool they.

In a manner of speaking, he has become a “reverse King Midas”, in that everything he touches turns to poop.

I get so tired of hearing the desperate “mean-spirited” comment by these Asshats. Liberal fools always resort to the “you’re mean spirited” in a desperate attempt to undermine what is usually the logical position. These LIB dimwits are beyond logic and reasoning. I might even go so far as to say they are meanspirited.
