Posted on 08/27/2012 1:36:54 AM PDT by I still care
Florida's former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist will be a speaker at the Democratic National Convention.
An official with President Barack Obama's campaign said Sunday that Crist will speak at next week's convention in Charlotte, N.C., but the day hasn't been worked out.

Can we say political opportunist? Whatever the way the wind blows, suddenly he's backing every democrat and jumping through every Democrat hoop he can find. My guess is the Dems are happy, but I don't know why. People really don't like this kind of pandering - that's one of the reasons Crist lost so handily to both Republicans AND Democrats this last election.
Guess he's tired of just being a lawyer.
Perhaps this is to mirror Artur Davis, former Democrat, speaking at the RNC?
I am smelling desperation here.
They are welcome to him!
Charlie should ask Arlen Specter how well the Dems treat former GOP pols once they’ve delivered. Based on history, this will be Charlie’s last hurrah.
He was easily bought for pennies on the dollar.
Most people learn the falacy and error of socialism as they mature. Poor Crist has regressed and now is the picture of a fool. No foundation, no character, no convictions, he comes into whatever pool of idiocy he can to find a place at the table. Now he is sitting with pigs.
I guess this is their “Zell Miller”.
Or a coming out of the closet speech...
Charlie is not a traitor, he is a double agent picking what he perceives as the winning side...
He just took off his RINO costume and has exposed himself as what he really is...
A craven power hungry feckless politician
He realizes that he has no future in Republican politics after running as an Independent against Rubio, and so he’s now trying to make a new career in Rat politics by publicly kissing Obama’s arse.
Gays stick together.
Representing the Outed Orange-Tanned Homosexual Wing of the DNC......
Jeb and Ace McCain wanted too much money?
That’s okay, I will gladly trade his speech for Artur Davis...former Co-Chair of the DNC and guy who seconded Obama’s nomination in 2008 speech at the Republican convention. Crist was always a traitor...
He has no clout. He lost to Marco Rubio. He’s a has been loser.
Well he’ll us Mitt and Paul Win Florida he so hated
Did you just wake up? Just teasing because I have to get a couple of drops in my eyes before I attempt to even read in the morning.
What I got out of that was he is soooo hated here in Florida in that he would be a negative for any campaign here. So let them party like its 2008 because the polling in Florida will only be enhanced for Romney/Ryan.
Makes one wonder where the Republican primary voters ever found Crist in the first place and how they were so easily fooled. I guess his predecessor Jebbie won’t be accompanying Crist to Charlotte.
I’m just glad he’s not my Gov. any more. Blech!
I’m sure John Cornyn and Mitch McConnell will be watching. They loved Crist and wanted him to be a republican colleague. Fools! These wolves in the fold have been smoked out!
At least I know my “first impressions” gene is still working. He smelled like a weasel the first time I saw him.
Rejected as a RINO by the GOP, Crist will fit right in with the Democrats. Charlie Crist’s rectum is a Log Cabin.
Just a fews words this time. Remember....I posted this a few weeks from now. Charlie Crist will have virtually noone watching his speech. period. Number two, the TV viewership numbers of the Democrat National Convention will be horrible, shamefull and sickening!!!
Is this the “prominent Republican woman” the Dems were crowing was going to speak at their convention?
Wasn’t Charlie seen on Folsom Street during last year’s celebration?
Cut the guy some slack. Charlie wants to be Governor or Senator from Florida, and the only way to do that is to run as a Democrat. No big mystery .
Hilarious...the Rats are always railing against the GOP for being the party of old white guys. And now look who Obama is calling on to try and salvage his re-election bid - 2 old white guys (Crist and Clinton).
Amazing how nature endows us with the instinctive ability to smell a rat.
Brit Hume pretty much called him a has been.
I came in late on tha commentary, would like to hear the whole thing, if anyone knows were it is.
Charlie Crist is a soulless, opportunistic has been who truly never was. There is virtual unanimous consensus in Florida, across the entire political spectrum, regarding Crist's irrelevance.
Crist is a total laughingstock from one end of the state to the other. For anybody to want his endorsement is a sign of abject desperation. If I were 0bama, I'd publicly say "thanks, but no thanks" to Crist.
Crist is truly the most worthless politician who has appeared in the state of Florida in the last 50 years. Crist is beyond irrelevant.
I wish I could convey to all Freepers just how profoundly meaningless this endorsement of 0bama from Crist is.
If anything, this endorsement will taint the 0bama campaign. Many Floridians will think twice about voting for 0bama now that Crist has endorsed him. Crist is that toxic...
