One of his first duties will be to kiss Obama’s ring and then his feet.

The Republican party is a free bank account for liberals before they become Democrats.

Sen. Nelson has been the only democrat in a major elected office in Florida for years, but RINOs, with the help of dems, rule in this state. The RINOs redistricted Allan West and then the dems’ fraud made sure he didn’t have a chance.

The republicans had 12 years to fix the fraud problems with republicans ruling everything including the FL House, FL senate, and governorship, but they did little to nothing to stop the fraud. The republicrats have been working with the democrats to game the system for all these years. I don’t see that changing any time soon.

The very same moves you see the Boehner pulling they have been doing in Florida for years. Rubio is a stealth RINO and I complained about Crist being a liberal to deaf eared conservatives, even before he won the governorship.

What he will probably do is run for governor again but as a democrat. The RINOs will run someone against governor Scott just to trash him enough in the primary for the dems to have something to use against him. Then all the RINOs will privately support Crist. They will not help gov. Scott at all.

In the end they will all be about compromising and working with Obama. Come 2016, Crist will help the dems to an even greater advantage in the fraud dept.

He’s just one of those liberals who infiltrated the Republican Party. I think we know who the rest of them are.

We always called them the Rockafeller Wing of the party back in the day. Now, they are even worse. In fact I haven’t yet decided exactly what they should be called - nothing that comes to mind is adequate to the task.

I just call them infiltrators who deliberately misled clueless voters and there are enough of them! They score points w/the D and widely accepted across the aisle. One big happy family under a big umbrella.

Well, the names we are talking about are pretty tame compared to the names that they actually deserve.

Obama campaigns with former Republican Crist in crucial Florida
Sept. 8, 2012 | Jeff Mason / FRPosted by Free ThinkerNY

(Reuters) Obama kicked off a two-day bus tour of the key election battleground state Sat with former Florida Governor Charlie Crist, who endorsed Obama's 2008 rival John McCain but has since left the Repub Party. The Dem incumbent hopes Crist, a once-popular Repub governor, will help Obama appeal to political independents, who are likely to determine the state's victor. "We have a leader with a cool head, and his name is Barack Obama," Crist told the crowd of some 11,000 at an outdoor rally. "He is working hard for the middle class. He is working hard for Fla," Crist said. (Excerpt) Read more at reuters.com ...

12/1 2009 ABC NEWS / FLORIDA'S INFAMOUS SCOTT ROTHSTEIN

Court documents filed 2009 by federal authorities sought the forfeiture of $1.2 billion he stole in his massive Ponzi scheme. Federal agents seized $60 million worth of assets that hint at the lavishness of Rothstein's lifestyle. A selection of the items Rothstein purchased with other people's money included 20 luxury cars, 15 homes and other properties, an 87-foot yacht, 304 pieces of jewelry and $12 million stashed in Moroccan banks (Rothstein briefly fled to Morocco with millions for three months when rumors of his alleged scam began to circulate. He returned by chartered jet in November to face US justice).

Rothstein falsified and manufactured numerous counterfeit court documents---and even forged the names of judges---to inveigle unwary investors into a scheme that purported to invest in court settlements (that he faked) at a high rate of return. Rothstein connived to get investors by saying he was the lawyer in hundreds of settlement cases whereas lawyers say that the numbers Rothstein bandied about were impossible. Rothstein also stole monies fron his cliets that were placed in escrow accounts that are never touched by ethical lawyers. Rothstein begged for mercy but the judge gave Rothstein 20 years more than even prosecutors had asked. He is now sergving 50years in a federal prison.

CRIST AND ROTHSTEIN

CRIST AND MCCAIN

ROTHSTEIN AND MCCAIN

Another democrat and republican plot foiled! Let’s be rid of McConnell and Cornyn next year, who supported this turncoat fool.

Charlie Crist, Arlen Specter, Lincoln Chafee, Jim Jeffords, the list goes on and on. Democrats posing as republicans. Richard Lugar is another one. Goodbye to him and to Scott Brown and Olympia Snowe.

Hopefully next year we’ll be able to say goodbye to Lindsay Grahamnesty, Susan Collins, Lamar Alexander, Mitch McConnell, Taxby Chambliss, Mike Enzi and John Cornyn, wolves in the fold, all!

They’ve been smoked out. Now they need to be voted out.

So true. Using America as a tool to feed their ego. Notice how they don’t go away. Power is addictive. It’s not about America but them. They think America can’t get along without them and one look at their record it’s all about destroying America. Evil b*st*rds!

So turncoat Crist is now a Dem---just in time to get a Cabinet appointment?

Honest ta God---I really get bummed when people suggest Obama should only appoint "honest, competent people" to high govt posts.

Give the guy a break---Obama is a product of the Chicago political machine---he’s never in his life met anyone who is "honest and competent."

Just look at his first Cabinet appointees: a treasury secretary who couldn’t figure out how to pay his own taxes. His attorney general actually thought selling guns to savage Mexican drug cartels was a good thing. Then there's Obama’s secretaries of commerce given the power of job creation and economic growth. Where have they been the past four years? Getting into Vegas hot tubs with Obama's GSA people?

Heck, we should thank our lucky stars Obama appointed only one czar who was a Communist truther (that we know of).

Is Susan Rice so horrible just b/c she adjusted her jock strap and went on Sunday talk TV? Big frickin' deal. So she misled everyone about Benghazi, saying a YouTube video caused the deaths of four American? Look at old news clips---clearly, Pearl Harbor was sparked by a Charlie Chan movie.
