Charlie Crist invokes Jeb Bush on condition of GOP
CNN ^ | 2/6/16 | Dana Davidsen

Posted on 02/06/2014 10:14:35 AM PST by jimbo123

Charlie Crist, the Republican-turned-Democrat who is running for governor in Florida, echoed former Gov. Jeb Bush in describing what he characterizes as an extremist turn in the GOP.

"I think I'll quote Jeb Bush. He said it better than I ever could. Today's Republican Party, at least the leadership, is perceived as being anti-women, anti-minority, anti-immigrant, anti-education, anti-gay couples, anti-environment," Crist said Wednesday on CNN's "Piers Morgan Live."

"Pretty soon, there's nobody left in the room," he added.

A potential 2016 presidential candidate, Jeb Bush, who preceded Crist as governor of Florida, has said the GOP needs to alter a perception that it is the party of opposition.

“”I think I’ll quote Jeb Bush. He said it better than I ever could. Today’s Republican Party, at least the leadership, is perceived as being anti-women, anti-minority, anti-immigrant, anti-education, anti-gay couples, anti-environment,””

Only perceived by the leftwing and the media, which is redundant.

With Crist and Bush, who needs Pelosi and Reid?

They’ll slice and dice our cause for them.

When does Jeb announce his run?

Honestly, I don’t know what is wrong with those folks. They trot people out as if to say, “See Hispanics are people too.” Who disputes that? We don’t want people who don’t respect our nation to get rewarded for abusing the law when we have to observe it.

The Bushes have shown themselves incapable of grasping the larger issues.

Crist is flailing.

Jeb has enough power to crush that orange limp wrist pretty easily....and he just might.

Charlie might’ve bit off more than he can chew trying to invoke Jeb.

I am certainly not on the “Jeb for Prez” bandwagon, but the guy was a VERY GOOD governor for Florida over the course of eight years. MUCH better than Crist.

BINGO!!

The rest of America perceives the Democrat party AND the media as being pro government tyranny, pro control freak, pro forcing people to accept homosexual "norming" everywhere in society, from their kids' schools to the military, pro propagandist education system, pro Luddite Chicken Little panic with regard to fake "global warming," pro Nanny State Health Care iron-fist-in-a-velvet-glove soft tyranny, etc.

Stupid Crist and stupid GOPe haven't figured out yet that the media mirrors the mindset of a tiny percentage of real Americans, that election results mirror the success of vote ginning, manufacturing, and fraud to elect politicians who reflect that liberal minority -- the joke is on Christ and the GOPe.

Americans must start voting FOR what they WANT and accept the cold, hard truth that voting "against" is as pointless as hunting unicorns.

Funny how the GOP has multiple names now....

Something for everyone...We’ve even got political party’s which are not even political parties within the GOP....

Just keep renaming this thing.

I’ve been wondering why Jebbie doesn’t just come out and admit that he is a member of the Socialist Workers Party and that he will be their candidate for President in 2016.

Bullcrap. Charlie, your socialist party is perceived as anti-American, anti-family, pro-death, counter to the social and religious values of the majority of Americans, fiscally irresponsible, corrupt, pandering to minorities with gimmedats, quick take away your 2A rights to protect your family and property, pathetic with international relations, weak on defense to the extent of placing Americans at risk, and y’all smell bad too.

Have you ever noticed that every picture you see of Charlie Crist is from the knees up? It's because he does not want you to see he is wearing FLIP FLOPS!

What's wrong with that exactly? The Left is for all those things and everything they touch turns into a total disaster.

Here's the silver lining:

Maybe Crist can talk Jeb into switching parties.

Jeb Bush and Crist can join hand with democrats - filling the country with illegals... They can believe special rights are based on 'choice of hole', and they can both hate grassroots conservatives. Jeb and Charlie can both BE DEMOCRATS.

Crist and Bush feel the Tea Party's a terrorist organization and the Muslim Brotherhood's moderate. They belong in the same party...

Charlie made the right choice - for himself, for us and for democrats. Jeb should do the same - and join the democrat party.

It's a win-win.

Jeb and Crist have a home with people who want to fill the country with illegals... believe in rights based on sexual choice and pigmentation and both hate Tea Party conservatives. Crist and Jeb think the Tea Party's a terrorist organization and the Muslim Brotherhood is moderate. Do we want that in our party? Nope.

Their 'home' is the democrat party.

Charlie made the right choice - for himself, for us and for democrats. Jeb should do the same. Jeb would be happier in his new democrat home - and we'd be happier having him with the people he's like.
