ST. PETERSBURG -- Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican-turned-independent, continued his political makeover Sunday by endorsing President Barack Obamas re-election and calling him the right leader for our times.
President Obama has a strong record of doing what is best for America and Florida, Crist wrote in an op-ed column in Sundays Tampa Bay Times, and he built it by spending more time worrying about what his decisions would mean for the people than for his political fortunes. Thats what makes him the right leader for our times, and thats why Im proud to stand with him today.
Crist praised Obama for protecting the middle class, strengthening Medicare, guiding the nation through an economic collapse, supporting public schools and investing in highways, railroads and airports, but without using the word stimulus.
Crists opinion piece is the latest in a series of political steps in which he appears to be inching closer to becoming a Democrat and potentially challenging Gov. Rick Scott in 2014. That would complete a metamorphosis for a politician who once called himself a Reagan Republican and a Jeb Bush Republican.
Crists career crashed to a halt in 2010 when he left the Republican Party, ran for the U.S. Senate as an independent and was soundly defeated by Republican Marco Rubio.
...An element of their party has pitched so far to the extreme right on issues important to women, immigrants, seniors and students that theyve proven incapable of governing for the people, Crist wrote. Look no further than the (U.S. Rep. Todd) Akin amendment in the Republican Party platform, which bans abortion, even for rape victims. ... The truth is that the party has failed to demonstrate the kind of leadership or seriousness voters deserve.

Charlie Crist has always given me the creeps...
He is such a useless turd.
Christ has gone commie on us. Sucks to be him in the upcoming civil war.
Has he come out yet? Did David Brock write the essay for him? It is time he ditched the phony wife.
At the end of the piece (how fitting).....
..... “[Crist’s] face now appears on billboards on Floridas Turnpike sponsored by the personal-injury law firm where he works, Morgan & Morgan.”
Nobody, and I mean nobody, on any side of any political spectrum in Florida, respects Charlie Crist.
His opinion couildn't be more irrelevant, either in Florida or out of it.
Crist is the epitome of a laughingstock...
LOL. I was just going to remark, “they always find their own.”
Praise God and FL voters that Marco Rubio beat him like a rag doll and simultaneously forced him from the Republican party.

Well now, you’re either up late, or up early! lol
Everytime I see this headline about this Obama endorsement I confuse the name with Chris Cristie (endorses Obama)
Now THAT creeps :)
Could this be Obama’s VP if something should happen to Biden like a fake heart problem (if the polls drop too much)?
A little of each.
Good night, God bless you and your precious family.
