How Bad Is It for Charlie Crist?

Posted on | March 11, 2010 | 28 Comments

“At this point, it doesn’t look like he could win a Republican Primary for Dog Catcher.”
Dean Debnam, president of Public Policy Polling

Kind of a nice plan you had there, Mr. Crist. All you had to do was to embrace Obama and get John Cornyn’s big money boys at the NRSC lined up behind you. Who cares about those stupid Republican primary voters in Florida, anyway?

The fix was in. Nothing could possibly go wrong.

How’s that plan working out for you, Charlie?

UPDATE: Oh, look, here’s a headline fresh in from Florida:

With a huge lead in Florida polls, Rubio dazzles crowd

Rubio 60%
Crist 26%

Sorry, Charlie.

NOT ONE RED CENT!

    Maybe this will show Cornyn, etal to not get involved in a Primary. I have called NRSC so often to complain that I am sure I am on their list. PS: Cornyn is my Senator…we constantly have to keep him in line.

    RSM, damn good work on 570 the other day.

    I grew up in Pompano, we might need the help of your scrutiny there.

    Will contribute at your call.

    Crist revealed his true colors long before kissing Obama’s donkey. No offshore drilling. Embracing enviro-weenie Global Warming religion. No real smaller government solutions for property tax relief. I bet he even drives a Volvo.

    But does Rubio back wax or not? Because Charlie Crist is such a regular guy.

    It must be bad because our local, liberal newspaper in Florida (St. Pete Times) is carrying one negative article a day on Marco. First, they claimed he took his share of pork. Then his expenses. The result: a big yawn. Voters are tired of the John McCain and Charlie Crist type of Republicans who are merely Repubs in name only.

    I will never forget my big donor meeting with Pat Toomey during the Redstate conference Aug 2009 in which Mr Toomey said to me “Marco Rubio CANNOT NOT WIN.”

    Turns out Rubio is blowing Crist out of the game.

    Keep this in mind Redstaters when talking about winning-never understatement the power of an insurgent Conservative message.

    What I really mean is this:

    Sarah Palin is the Marco Rubio to Mitt Romney’s Charlie Crist.

    Do. Not. Screw. 2012. With. A. Mitt. Romney. in. Charlie. Crist. Drag.

    Pat Toomey made this mistake in 2009 when he said Marco Rubio cannot win’ and now he has egg all over his face.

    Don’t be The Stupid Party again: Marco Rubios’ insurgent Conservatism is proving how promoting pantywaist Moderate Republicans is the losing position.

    Well, a lot of people seem excited about Rubio, but I am going to be VERY interested to see if he is an independent vote in the Senate, or if joins up with the establishment (who are pushing his campaign like crazy right now) in his voting pattern. I’m going to support him via CFG, but I hope the journalists hold him accountable if his voting record leaves something to be desired ala Scott Brown.

    In other news, I wonder how the RNC Eagles are faring with so many great candidates out there—I guess it depends how much one participates for martinis, handshakes and golf as opposed to supporting those overlooked by the big-shots.

    independent vote?

    It was the Independent vote which brought about the most extreme Left-wing government in American history.

    Since all elections are dependent upon Independent voters I do hope they’ll make better choices in future elections because if the last election is any indication of their Independent tendencies then all America is in some perpetually deep doo-doo.
