Charlie Crist Signs Papers to Become Democrat AT THE WHITE HOUSE
The Tampa Bay Times ^ | December 7, 2012

Posted on 12/07/2012 7:35:22 PM PST by arichtaxpayer

It was just a matter of time.

Charlie Crist, Florida's former Republican governor who relished the tough-on-crime nickname "Chain Gang Charlie" and used to describe himself variously as a "Ronald Reagan Republican" and "Jeb Bush Republican," on Friday signed papers to become a registered Democrat.

He did so Friday evening during a Christmas reception at the White House, where President Barack Obama greeted the news with a fist bump for the man who had a higher profile campaigning for Obama's re-election this year than any Florida Democrat.

Charlie Crist is nothing, if not consistently inconsistent.

Always thought there was something fishy about that boy ~ now, did he go jump in the sack with Obamugabe afterwards, or did they work that out earlier?

Well, bless his heart, as they say down south...

He voted Democrat anyway, and we don’t want him. Wonder if him and Obummer bumped more than fists?

Pretend to be a republican, get the votes, get in power and then push a liberal agenda.

They cannot get elected as a Dem so they pretend to be a republican, once in power they push their liberal agenda.

Should he run for office again, this will be the 3rd party identification label he’s had in 3 election cycles.

The Dems are looking hard for someone to unseat Gov Rick Scott. Scott might have some challengers in the primary.I supported Scott but had a funny feeling with some of the FL GOP he associated with. The redistricting that was done because of the census, lost us Allen Wests seat.. I do wonder if something else was in play. Our legislator are part time ($30.000k for the house) but most of them are millionaires. I think we have a Republican problem here in Florida. Scott has done some good, but he needs to finish strong (No to the health mandate!)

The FL GOP legislators did the best they could with redistricting, but their hands were tied by that stupid “fair districts” constitutional amendment adopted by FL voters in 2010. And Congressman West did not lose because of redistricting—he ran in a district that was a couple of points more Republican than his old district.

But I share your apprehension about Scott’s reelection; his 2010 election was far closer than it should have been, and he hasn’t exactly become more popular over the past coiple of years.

Crist is following in the failed footsteps of Arlen Specter who was eventually thrown under the bus and left by the side of the road.

I believe you will find him listed as an A$$ociate Attorney at the law firm run by John Morgan in Central Floriduh!
Also John Morgan is known to be a very large Bundler to Obama.
He threw a couple of large fund raising soirees that included many NBA stars.
Maybe Olde Charley will hang out with the real ball players.

its amzing alright seeing as obama got less than 5000 at a rally days before the election and yet he won Tampa.

course fraud was done again and it;s hard for those northern snowbirds to get to the rallies down here.
