Finally, the RINOs go third party! The purge is well underway.
My brother lives in Florida and says the people there are so enraged with Crist and what he has done in the state...he doesn’t think he has much chance of winning as many will vote just to oppose him from staying in office.
frustrated yes and I hope Rubio takes the time to read the bill and understand it.
I appreciate his problem with north FL and south FL, I’;m in N FL, much more conservative and less illegals,
Hopefully he ears his voters speak and then he could explain how the law is and that the left is distorting that bill
having been an immigrant it really pisses me off that some can come here illegally and take what they want and then moan when they do nto get it
These guys are like grade school kids. If they don’t get their way, they do things just for spite so the other has a harder time winning.
Here’s a quote from the latest 3 way Rasmussen poll (Rubio 37%, Crist 30% and Meek 22%):
Rubio now leads among Republicans and unaffiliated voters with Crist in second. Among Democrats, Meek earns 46% support, while Crist picks up 33% of the Democratic vote.
Looks like Crist hurts Meek more than Rubio.
Related: Group will mobilize to demand that Charlie Crist refund donations..."Anybody has the right and the opportunity to ask," Crist said, when asked about refunding donations. "I think we spent it though."
Not sure what the legal issues are here.
Cool... just what we need another Dem Senator...
So, you would rather lose the Florida Senate seat which we need in order to stop Obama from destroying this country then vote for a basically conservative candidate who is not quite as rabidly anti immigrant as you are. What is with you anti immigration people - can’t you think rationally?
A conservative who is against illegal immigration might well oppose the Arizona law if he thinks it gives the police too much leeway to stop people. I don’t believe the law does this. However, I can certainly see that it is a conservative view to want to protect people from unwarrented searches and seizures. The Anti-immigration wing of the GOP needs to grow up and be able to think rationally instead of shooting anyone who doesn’t agree with them 100% of the time.
My first post to you was a little too harsh. I just get frustrated with people (including my local talk show host Lars Larson) who are ready to turn on a conservative candidate and even support more liberal candidates because the conservative candidate does not agree 100% with the most radical anti illegal immigration views.
How can Crist remain a Republican Governor when he is running as no party which means leaving the GOP. He needs kicked out of the Republican Governor’s Conference.
Actually he needs to step down as Governor IMHO as he has abandoned the people who elected him.
BTW, if any of you gave to Crist earlier, Club for Growth is going to have the details on how you can get your money back as soon as he goes no party. They did the same thing to Specter and people receovered $1.2M.
Yes, well Rubio is in a class of his own in that race...a Real conservative so I think we shall be okay...please God.
I'm sure there is a cush job for him, if he spoils the vote?
Has John Cornyn issued a statement yet? LOL
They wonder why we don’t want to give our money to them.
We need statesmen, not politicians. This is the act of a self-serving politician, not a statesman.
bitch....these RINOS are always just about themselves..this may give the Dems the seat.
What a damned hack.
No, they have fully endorsed Rubio and have said if Crist was to do this, he’d never win another Republican election again. He’s more toast then his spray-on tan.
