Charlie Crist endorses Obama

Charlie Crist endorses Obama

Is anyone surprised?  Crist’s only chance at rehabilitating a political career is a senior position in the second Obama administration.

Crist has an Op-Ed in the Tampa Bay Times (via DaTechGuy) today explaining his treachery:

As America prepares to pick our president for the next four years — and as Florida prepares once again to play a decisive role — I’m confident that President Barack Obama is the right leader for our state and the nation. 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.

Read the whole thing, it’s one of the most vomitous suck-up jobs ever.

And as you read it, give another round of thanks to the Not One Red Cent group which back in May 2009, when the Republican establishment in the form of the NRSC was backing Crist, fought to get Marco Rubio attention and support.

Opportunist and suck up par excellence!!

“Crist’s only chance at rehabilitating a political career is a senior position in the second Obama administration”

Yes, yes indeed. Under Secretary of Sea Technology. Division: Sponges.

I never trust anyone that orange.

And oh yea, that Soetero endorsement sure helped Crist in 2010, I’m sure it will help Barry just as much this time around.


The designated hitter rule allowed has-been, washed-up fielders a second career so long as the arms and upper body remained in decent shape.

CC is an all-around has-been; nothing with save him. Why would a 2d term Obama choose a low octane former GOPer when there are oodles of super high test liberals who’ll gladly do his bidding of running around the Constitution.

“He invested in our runways, railways and roads.”

Funny, though. Obama’s Gulf War (Gulf of Mexico) has put thousands out of work, and prevented development of the thing those runways, railways, and roads all were built to use…oil-based fuels.

Mass transit schemes (i.e., bullet trains) are DESIGNED to herd us into TSA control, and the goal is to strip us of our autonomy by stripping us of our cars.

Crist is an idiot. A dangerous idiot.

    Bravo Rags.

    True, that.

    Off-shore workers now migrate from the Gulf Coast of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi to drill in west Texas. They work 14-14, 28-14 or 28-28, depending on the company, with many of them being accommodated at the well-site due to the housing shortage. While it’s work, drilling down by Fort Stockton doesn’t pay what working off-shore does. The big winners are the companies getting prime talent for prevailing wages during a boom.

    Here is a video of Christ picking another winner
    In this case as Eddie Mush

He and John Huntsman are in great company.

Losers – both.

While we all agree that Crist is a jerk, does any reader in Florida have a good feel for whether this endorsement is likely to help Obama?

    Not unless the Oompa Loompas now have the right to vote. Floridians just go “meh…” when they hear his name!

Akin and Crist, brothers beneath the skin.

    Let’s see:

    – Egomaniac who cares only for himself? Akin, check. Crist, check.
    – Fool who thinks Something Bigger than Himself is driving his Noble Crusade? Akin, check. Crist, ditto.
    – Bumptious and isolated from reality? Akin, check. Crist, yep.

    So…what’s with the thumbs downs?

There goes the QT tanning vote.

The Crist endorsement should certainly come as no surprise to anyone. It’s tantamount to listing to those callers to certain radio talk shows who always start off by saying:

I voted straight Republican for years — right up until they ___________ [fill in the blank].

Just RINOism in its tertiary stage.

No. Charlie Crist for:

Inspector General of Closets

The Acting Like You’re Straight Czar

Enough jocularity! I have things to do, like be a smart-ass elsewhere..

Didn’t some of Crist’s ‘(Fla ‘loser’) advisors join ‘Team Romney’ early in the primaries?

Charlie Christ needs to go to Mars. He *might* have more relevance there… and let us send Bill Nelson along with him.

I understand the desire, in political circles, to collect endorsements. It’s an old-timey political thing; you collect a bunch of famous and semi-famous names on your side, and the weight of it all is supposed to impress the ordinary schmoe into voting for you on election day.

Here in Chicago, of course, endorsements as an inducement to vote always ran a poor second to a freshly-printed twenty.

My question in this modern age is a simple one: does anyone think that endorsements in general, or Crist’s endorsement in particular, matter that much? Does the Obama team honestly think Crist is going to move the needle in Florida or is this just more ‘stamp-collecting’ to fill the news cycle?

I know the twenties still matter.

    That’s the way it used to work prior to the advent of modern media. Endorsements were important because it was literally impossible for the common man to actually listen to any national office holder. Rarely the voter would get to hear an office candidate speak ONCE, and likely never met with them after that.

    If you could collect the endorsement of someone respected as a thinker or great leader, the masses thought you must be (fill in the blank) in order for that person to support your candidacy / ideas.

    That’s also why it used to make sense for Senators to be elected by their respective legislatures. It allowed for the local electorate to have input by electing the electors.

    With the advent of modern media (weekly or daily newspapers, radio and eventually television) the candidates can actually hear the candidates stated positions from the horse’s mouth, so to speak.

    I actually think that with proper attention, this endorsement could hurt the Establishment by showing what fools they were to endorse Crist and that the TEA Partiers were prescient in kicking Crist to the curb.

    You’re right about the freshly printed twenty going farther than an endorsement today, though.

What a shock. Or not. Now I’m just waiting for Boehner and McCain to endorse Obama.

Wow! If only Obama can reel in the highly coveted “Sponge Bob Square Pants” endorsement then he will sweep the “marine invertebrate” endorsement category in 2012.

On the other hand, it appears the real Marine endorsement will go elsewhere this election cycle…

F+=kers with who he belongs with now. Wonder how many feeling abused smart money rino insiders will join him. Not that it matters.

“an economy that gives us the opportunity to reap prosperity through hard work and personal responsibility”


LOL. Good one, Crist. Obama is all about hard work and personal responsibility. That’s why he refuses to enforce our immigration laws, spends our tax dollars on programs designed to get more illegal aliens signed up for food stamps, and wants to gut the work requirement in welfare — because he cares so very deeply about hard work and personal responsibility.

With material as hilarious as this, maybe Crist’s next career move should be as a stand-up comic.

Charlie who?

From my many buddies in Florida: Crist’s endorsement of Obama is going to have the following effect: NADA. His supporters in his lost race to Rubio were basically the Broward County and Palm Beach County Teachers Unions, as well as the few remaining journalists who still have a job at the Sun Sentinel. The rest of the state realized his leadership skills were about as effective as dead palm fronds–hardened and amber-colored from the Tallahassee summer sun.

Or…San Francisco.

Thread winner! 😀

Senator John Cornyn, R TX, call your office, ASAP.
