Posted on 08/26/2012 6:43:57 PM PDT by Mozilla
Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist endorsed President Barack Obama in an op-ed in The Tampa Bay Times on Sunday. Touting the president for serving as the nations calm, Crist, now a registered independent, decried the GOPs shift to the extreme right.
POLITICO noted that while the move isnt a shock, the interesting aspect is related to ongoing rumors about Crist running for governor again, only as a Democrat. While he doesnt make any mention of a run in the op-ed, if Obama wins Florida, this would be a handy thing for Crist, whose original consulting team is with Romney, to point to having done and supporting the Democratic president is sort of a half-measure toward announcing as one himself.

He is a loon. Read somewhere he thought Obama might lose like Carter at some Republican retreat. cuckoo cuckoo
This confirms his narcissism; it’s all about me! He and 0bama are well suited for each other.
Aren’t there - like - dozens of Democrats who switched to the GOP back in 2009 and 2010? I mean at the state level.
does he have some sort of grudge against the country?
Good. It’s really important that we expose and eliminate all ‘plants’ from the party. The Republican party is much more to the left now than it has ever been, yet the ideologues on the left call the party ‘extreme’. What this really shows is how incredibly extreme the left has become. JFK would fit much more into the Republican party of today than into the extreme party that the democrats have become.
Maybe Crist wishes to take Biden’s place on the DemocRAT ticket? I wouldn’t put it past Obama to try something like that.
It’s OK, if he ran for POTUS as the GOP nominee in 2016, he would still get votes from people talking about how he’s better than a Democrat.
Not a surprise.
It proves there is a lot lefties that should not be in the GOP, period.
It also proves, we the people are not stupid at all!... we know something when it stinks... and this guy did and does.
Wow, what a shock /s............I am so glad Rubio won the Primary a couple of years ago!!! Can you imagine if Crist was a Florida Senator???
Wonder if he got permission from his boyfriend.
Let’s face it. This is all about Obama making it so Crist can get married. If you know what I mean. And I think you do.
Isn’t he as dead as Al Hunt?????
I write news for radio, and by sheer coincidence, I was reading some background on Crist just last week. It was for a story about Todd Akin on how the NRSC had backed other candidates instead of the conservative. The quote I found from a few years back was from John Cornyn, explaining why Crist was the best GOP choice for Senate and how Rubio would have other opportunities in the future. Thank God voters were smarter than that and gave Rubio his opportunity right then.
The same story mentioned that conservatives who disagreed with Cornyn said that if Crist were in the race, the Democrats wouldn’t even have to bother to field a candidate. And now, we see just how true that was.
Anybody who would endorse Obama at this point is needing to be locked up in a nuthouse.
“He and 0bama are well suited for each other.”
Let the sorry sob disappear into the bowels of Kenya with Osama bin Obama come January. Evil does as evil sees, as evil is.
