Rubio: Congratulations to Charlie Crist for Standing O by Democrats
The Rubio campaign wasted little time in panning rival Charlie Crist for his State of the State address in Florida today. Crist was given a standing ovation by Democrats for his support of Obama's 787 billion dollar stimulus plan. Republicans actually BOOed him.
It really sounded like Crist was touting democrat policies with more and more spending. No mention of where he would find the money to pay for everything he proposed.
CRIST DEFENDS STIMULUS AS THE "RESPONSIBLE THING TO DO,” DEMOCRATS RESPOND WITH A STANDING “O”
Miami, FL – In a rousing speech that brought Democrats to their feet, Governor Charlie Crist tonight delivered his final State of the State remarks, highlighting his support for the stimulus.
“Tonight, Charlie Crist tried to reinvent himself as someone who had no choice but to help President Obama pass the failed stimulus a year ago,” said Rubio for Senate spokesman Alex Burgos. “But Floridians know it was Charlie Crist who helped force the failed government stimulus down their throats instead of working towards a fiscally responsible alternative to stimulate the true job creators in the private sector.
“Charlie Crist's claim that he acted merely to get Floridians their fair share is not only untrue, it is offensive. Floridians' fair share was squandered years ago by out-of-control Washington spending, and the money Charlie Crist is using to fund his campaign year spending spree is actually being stolen from future generations of Floridians.”
