Obama Snags Coveted Charlie Crist Endorsement

Posted by on Aug 26, 2012 at 9:07 am

Can’t wait for Obama to roll out the new commercial: Pathetic Losers for Obama.

On the cusp of the Republican National Convention that he helped bring to his home of Tampa Bay, former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist goes all in for Democrat Barack Obama in a Tampa Bay Times editorial.

It’s looks like yet another indication that Crist, an independent, plans on becoming a Democrat and running for governor. The next sign: Whether he gets a speaking slot at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

He should get a spot on Women’s Victim Night, right after Sandra Fluke.
From “his” statement, Crist sounds a bit confused:
I applaud and share his vision of a future built by a strong and confident middle class in an economy that gives us the opportunity to reap prosperity through hard work and personal responsibility. It is a vision of the future proven right by our history.
Hard work and personal responsibility? And he’s endorsing Obama? This should really be a game-changer. For Mitt Romney. A GOP reaction:

Today we have seen a repugnant display from a self-centered, career politician.

While the people of Florida, and thousands of visitors who’ve traveled here, are facing an emergency, Charlie Crist has demonstrated, yet again, that his political ambition will always come first.

Beyond the appalling timing of this move, Crist now professes his support for Barack Obama despite spending his entire political career bashing the political agenda that Obama advances. Crist in 2010 said ‘I don’t agree with the guy on hardly anything he does.’

    Crist clearly needs another government job wherever he can get it, no matter what he has to do. The problem is, who will listen to him? He isn’t progressive enough for the Dems (although close) and he has burned every other bridge he had in politics.
