Charlie Crist? Florida’s Specter by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired


Crist? Florida’s Specter

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

I met Charlie Crist once or twice during his visits to the Florida panhandle before he became Governor. He seemed friendly enough, but having observed him over the years my opinion galvanized that he always has been exactly what he is turning out to be, a liberal in conservative clothing. Crist is a political opportunist, careerist chameleon changing stripes for convenience or advantage for the sole purpose of advancing his political career. In a recent statement Crist bemoaned the loneliness of not having party support for his campaign, probably a terminal observation since cogent voters can now see for themselves just who he is; and that will make him really lonely.

Crist ran as a head-fake conservative and once ensconced revealed that he had no interest in the conservative social issues which topped those among which he ran for Governor and which helped sweep him into office. But, during his term he conveniently sidestepped proposed legislation that would tighten abortion rules as well as homosexual issues, specifically as the latter relates to redefining marriage. Crist’s convenient dodge was always his limp-wristed excuse that he had more important things to deal with; not surprisingly first and foremost being his political career.

Never one to miss getting his face on TV, Crist followed McCain around like one puppy following another in heat, that is, until McCain was beaten. After that it was not long before the Crist/Obama embrace. Right on Charlie at least you let your true colors show. Being a man after his own heart, Crist repeatedly declared that he would run as a Republican, not an Independent for the November elections but evidently could not bear seeing his career slip away as he was being crushed by upstart Rubio.

Like any other self-serving politician Crist forgot his pledge, and now, as an Independent in a not so covert act but a rare moment of integrity removed pro-life information from his website since he has lost the conservative vote anyway trading it for the pro-abortion vote. He might just as well show his true colors like other socialists/democrats who finally came clean with their votes for so called, “Health Care Reform.” Americans can see them at last for what they really are and can make an informed decision on how to vote instead of being duped by their fraudulent centrist rhetoric. Charlie Crist fits right in with the putrid D.C. crowd and if he is what some Florida voters want in the U.S. Senate, they should vote for him.

Of the choices for the U.S. Senate from Florida: Meeks is a racist who doesn’t have a clue or a chance; and, his own democrats are in the process of throwing him “under the bus” in favor of supporting Crist, Florida’s version of Arlen Specter. On the other hand, one may be no more enthralled with Rubio than any other careerist politician; but I will vote and it won’t be for the first two.

Americans should pray that Obama will be fired by voters sooner than later and along with him all those politicians who have made a career of spending American taxpayers’ money while feathering their own nests with it. Crist fits right in with that putrid crowd! Florida voters should show him retirement so that he can spend fulltime with his new wife.

I cannot resist writing a few words about the “Wicked Witch” of the White House Press Corps; what was her name? Yes, I know but decline to dirty this essay with it. One of the more striking images was her diminutive, shriveled up, hunched over witch-like figure being embraced by Obama and his Joker smile in the White House briefing room. All she was missing was the broom and black hat and Obama, the painted face. What a pair! On a positive note, at long last a liberal icon tells it like they really feel about Israel and one more layer of the noxious liberal onion has been peeled back for the nation to see. Israel’s right to self-defense is self-evident and anyone who disagrees can go to hell because today, I am a Jew!

Wild Thing's comment........

Great write up by the Col. I love reading his opinion on things.

It is amazing what people sell their souls for as in Charlie Crist and what he has done.

Obama is supposed to be coming to Florida, I would bet that Charlie is all panting with excitment to see him again.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

He really out did himself this time, he gets better and better.

Ole Hellen has been there since Ike, why hasn't someone thought to throw a bucket of water on her far long ago than this. Where's Dorothy when you need her.

And the Colonel, WT, thinks Rubio is going to win. So be of good cheer.

Mark, I agree, this was awesome.

OH wow he does? Thank you so much for that about Rubio. I know none of these peoole are perfect down the line what we all want but Rubio sure has almost all the things a conservative agree's with. Almost all is pretty good.
Thanks again Mark.
