Crist: Everything About GOP
Was ‘Counter to My Values’

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/11/2012 10:23:04 AM

New Democrat Charlie Crist said last night on CNN that in his eyes the GOP “seem to get more strident and more difficult, if you will, less tolerant, less welcoming, whether it was immigration or education or voter suppression that we saw recently.” The former Florida governor left the Republican Party in 2010 to run for the Senate seat won by Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and spoke at this year’s Democratic National Convention, but just Friday announced he’s a Democrat. “Each and every one of these issues

I used to live in Florida and remember meeting Charlie Crist when he was trolling for votes one Saturday night in Palm Beach. He is a real idiot!

Crist completely mischaracterized the GOP & what they really stand for. This is a textbook example of how the left is winning the battle.
Republicans better take off the gloves and start countering the lies of these anti-American dirt-balls or their party won´t survive.

Crist has values? The fact that he has NO values makes him a perfect dumbocrat!

He is finished in Florida, unless there is massive fraud involved!

So says a LOSER and a TURNCOAT!!Hey Crist!! Remember what happened to Specter, once he turned to the dark side???

In my humble opinion, these politicians are pathetic. Once they lose an election they take whatever path leads them to the next office!!

Got it Charlie....look carefully at your values, if you can find them or do they appear and vanish at will only to be recalled when convenient and self-serving. Most everyone is for immigration...that is legal immigration not fence jumping; for having the right to vote....if you are a citizen of this country and have proof that entitles you to vote, etc. The concepts of Open Borers and everybody votes have not yet passed except in your own mind.

And before you get so high-minded with your pontificating, remember that you are now employed by ambulance chasers whose only interest is to siphon off large sums of money to fund their own lavish lifestyles. A bit of hypocrisy Charlie!!!

If you could call what he has "values", then this may be the only time he´s told the truth in his life.

The question is: Which value made you pretend to be a Republican while actually being a Democrat?

There is a reason we have two major parties.

When RINOs demand a "bigger tent" they´re not talking about increasing the base. They´re talking about burying it.

Claiming to be republican is merely a flag of convenience for many politicians for whom getting and staying elected is their actual goal.

Occasionally in life, a man becomes a real, genuine loser. Crist is just such a man.

This is all about one thing and only one thing, campaign contributions that he can live off of. He knew the Republican coffers had dried up for him so he headed for the democrat trough.

Please note, the following is a personal opinion.I have been a Florida citizen all of my life. It is possible Crist has been the less effective governor in the Florida state. I can´t remember him being a governor outspoken to help the Florida citizens. My opinion is that he is signing up as a Democrat and that is that he would kiss Obama´s butt (like the liberals media does), like any weakly politician does to want President Obama to give him a government "position", and it is possible that if Romney had been elected POTUS, Crist might be talking about how nice the Republican party is, just like any politician may do.

Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day."

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
