Charlie Crist´s Achingly
Bad Search for Self

New Republic, by Isaac Chotiner

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/2/2014 5:22:04 AM

Charlie Crist’s new book, lazily titled The Party’s Over, is a cause for both anger and sadness. Crist, the former Republican governor of Florida who is now running for the same office as a Democrat, has written—or rather has co-written, with Newsday columnist and Fox News liberal Ellis Henican—a dishonest and boring memoir. But by the end of this slim volume, a self-justifying account of why Crist switched parties, pathos overwhelms the sheer awfulness of the book. Crist is such a political hack, and so unable to talk or sound like a normal human being, that he actually provides a

Ellis Hennican? Hmmmmm.

From the book´s title: How the Extreme Right Hijacked the GOP

And by the "extreme right" he means the conservatives/TEA Party people. Which makes that claim pure horse hockey. The GOP Establishment is doing everything in its power to get rid the true conservatives.

Btw, Chotiner should have proof-read his own copy first: "the Extreme Righ"; "How does you arrive."

I cant imagine being the one tasked to review Crist´s book. I could say with all honesty I would find a way to call in dead until the job was handed over to someone else.

Boss: Hey I hear your feeling better!

Me: Oh yeah, whew that was a scary one I tell ya!

Boss: So your going to be able to write up that review of Crist´s book for Sunday?

Me: (slight pause) Oh No! Someone is breaking in with a chainsaw and a gun! No! No! Please dont saw my head off!
(sounds of chainsaw coming closer as the line disconnects)
Boss: Again?

Who can forget John Cornyn and the National Republican Senatorial Committee endorsing and championing Charlie Crist.
“I think it’s fair to say there was a consolidation of support both within the state and here,” Cornyn said. “Charlie Crist is the candidate with the best chance to win.”
Wouldn´t Crist have made a great Senator!

Creepy guy - even way back when he was our governor. He was totally hyped up with being on the list of possible VP picks in ´08. He seemed to have gotten married quickly. I assumed it was to make himself more acceptable as a VP candidate.

Anyway, he didn´t get the nod and, in my opinion, has never forgiven the republicans for that. He´s still a creepy little guy who doesn´t know what he believes. He´ll be sticking his finger in the air - as usual - to see which way the political winds are blowing. It´s a hell of a way to run your life - or the state of Florida.

Charlie Christ is a consummate fence sitting politician that has never done anything that did not have benefit to advancing his political career. Many years he jumped from one political position to another after doing a half ass job at each position. Why people voted for him I could never understand other that he was a smooth talker and exploited the press. It is time for him to get a real job if can find one. Fence sitting is not in high demand now.

Didn´t Henican used to write poison pen pieces for The Observer? Not just a hack; a vile, nasty hack. Some partnership.

Does Ellis too hang out at the Green Iguana? Florida story from when he was hoping to be McCain´s VP:

The story goes that the Florida governor frequented the Green Iguana, a bar in Tampa, back in the early 1990s when he was just starting his political career. He was less careful back then, people say, and during his partying at the Green Iguana, he was openly gay.

Like Pee Wee Herman gherkin-ogling Nurse Nancy in a darkened "adult" cinema, Chotiner makes good use of his opportunity to take a gratuitous swipe at Gov. Palin, whose political principles are bedrock solid and don´t need alteration. Back when Dr. Krauthammer was on TNR´s staff, I was a subscriber. I see that I haven´t missed much since letting my subscription lapse a couple of decades ago.

Searching for a proper word to do justice to the public career of the pathologically ambitious Charlie Crist, arguably the worst Florida governor in fifty years, leads one to a malodorous mountain of pejoratives. Unseemly seems to be a good fit for this orange-tinted chameleon, untainted by anything related to political principle. And yes, he was known to hang out at the notorious gay bar, the Green Iguana, before marrying his beard and pursuing his political ambitions. He´s trapped in the closet.

Crist´s alliance with the ubiquitous slip and fall* litigation factory of John Morgan would appear to be a parody, like Dr. Kevorkian hypothetically making a horizontal career change to undertaker, but it makes perfect sense in retrospect.

Ellis Henican, who possesses the most irritating nasal whine of a voice imaginable (and political views to match), is the perfect choice to pen Crist´s cliché-ridden tome. Those two deserve each other.

*Morgan, the unfriendliest looking character you´ll ever see outside Death Row in Raiford, whose annual advertising budget exceeds $15 million, actually does have a brief radio commercial that goes like this: "Slip and fall? Call Morgan and Morgan...for the people." Retch.

FTA: Now, of course, Crist wants to show that he was never much of a Party guy. It’s true that while he was the attorney general of Florida he refused to intervene in the Terry Schiavo controversy. He was even chewed out by Karl Rove for skipping a George W. Bush event in Florida. He tells us that during the Schiavo catastrophe he “just didn’t participate” and kept a dignified silence.

I believe that is called the "sin of omission" where I come from - or maybe it is the "sin of commission"? Either way, he didn´t stand up against a morally wrong act that was about to take place - it was omission by his remaining silent. Or by commission - he was only thinking of himself and his political future and not the life of an innocent human being.

With Obamacare death panels we may all be declared Terry Schiavos sooner than we think. And the people of Florida would consider this dirt bag for Governor again!

The ACA: Still Falling Short
National Review Online, by James C. Capretta    Original Article

The Obamacare open-enrollment season (supposedly) closed yesterday, so it is good time to step back and assess where things stand with the law and its first-year implementation. Interestingly, Obamacare remains something of a Rorschach test for journalists and health-policy analysts. Looking at the same set of facts, two observers can reach very different conclusions. For instance, Noam Levey of the Los Angeles Times writes that Obamacare “has spurred the largest expansion in health coverage in America in half a century.” Meanwhile, health consultant Howard J. Peterson, writing at the Philadelphia Inquirer news site, says “the first four years of Obamacare has led to

Yesterday the Obama Administration boasted that six million people had signed up for Obamacare. There was not a word about Frank Alfisi. Frank Alfisi was killed by Obamacare. His daughter, Amy DiFrancesca, is furious. And yes, she quite specifically blames the President of the United States for her father’s death. As did the doctor who told Amy: “You can thank Mr. Obama for this.” Before we get to the specifics of how Frank Alfisi died, let’s begin with the who of this story. Mr. Alfisi was not a statistic. He wasn’t a guinea pig or a lab rat. Frank Alfisi was a real person.

If Singh did not pay, the letter said, money would be garnished from his paycheck. “It got me worried, because I knew I didn’t owe this amount of money,” Singh said. Singh called the Marshal’s office, and they told him Atlantic Credit, a debt collection agency, secured a judgment against him for the $10,000.

Presidential campaigns are long and complicated, and getting more so, but they all start in the same way: Hopefuls jockey for position in a handful of lanes that open up for specific types of candidates their party seems willing to consider. That is precisely what is happening now as Republicans begin serious contemplation of the 2016 presidential race. The party is changing and soul-searching after two straight presidential defeats, and its coming nominating contest may well be the most crowded and wide-open in a generation. To sort through that forming crowd, think of the potential candidates as falling into five different lanes.

When it comes to mocking a sitting president, the world’s most dangerous leaders have apparently taken up the traditional role played by late-night comics. It started last August when the 11-year-old son of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad took to Facebook with this message for President Obama: “I just want them to attack sooo much, because I want them to make the mistake of beginning something that they don’t know the end of it.” A few days later, Papa Assad tells Charlie Rose that Obama runs a “social media administration.” Next came Vladimir Putin.

President Obama´s endorsement on Monday of Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) in a Democratic primary is a big deal. Until now, Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-Hawaii) sported the most notable endorsement in the race: That of late senator Daniel Inouye (D), whose dying wish was for her to succeed him. But if there´s one endorsement that could carry as much or more weight in what promises to be a contentious campaign, it´s Obama´s. The broad unpopularity that has has turned Obama into a political albatross in many states does not extend to Hawaii, where he grew up and enjoys iconic status. Obama

The Obama administration is celebrating that it has achieved its (downwardly revised) goal of signing up more than 6 million Americans for Obamacare by 11:59 p.m. March 31. Mission accomplished! Not quite. The administration has not revealed how many of those 6 million people have paid their premiums. If you have not paid, you have not actually “enrolled.” It’s like putting merchandise in your Amazon cart but never clicking “buy.” Besides, the number that matters is not how many Americans signed up for Obamacare but rather how many previously uninsured Americans signed up for Obamacare. By that standard, Obamacare may be

President Obama sees himself following in the footsteps of the creator of the modern Democrats, Franklin D. Roosevelt, who launched the “New Deal” in the 1930s to protect the interests of working and middle class Americans. Among numerous other programs, Roosevelt’s New Deal included Social Security for the elderly, a massive program of public works for the unemployed, subsidies for farmers and government recognition of labor unions to raise wages for private sector workers. Shortly after Obama’s 2008 election, Time ran a cover story picturing Obama as the next FDR with the title “The New New Deal.” President Obama and his

JERUSALEM -- A hard-line Israeli Cabinet minister says convicted spy Jonathan Pollard opposes being freed from a U.S. jail in exchange for Palestinians prisoners. Uri Ariel says people close to Pollard have told him that he opposes such a "shameful deal." Ariel, from the hard-line Jewish Home party, spoke to Army Radio on Tuesday. He says he, too, is against the release of "murderers" for Pollard. Talk of the possibility of Pollard´s early release has arisen as an incentive in the troubled Mideast peace negotiations. The idea is that if he is freed, Israel would make concessions and release more Palestinian prisoners.

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras.
