Charlie Crist: Oil Spill? "It's not like the sky is falling.

As unbelievable as it may seem, Reuters has reported that Florida Governor Charlie Crist does not seem too concerned about the Gulf Oil spill.

"We don't want to take the 'sky is falling' attitude about this," Florida Gov. Charlie Crist said on Wednesday, standing on a white sand beach in Pensacola marred by tar balls.

"We want to see it, we want to address it, we want to clean it up and stay after it," Crist said.

Crist needs to tell that to the thousands of families in Northwest Florida who's lives have been affected the spill.

Crist is happy to take advantage of a photo op with Obama (with whom he seems to agree). He talks about tourism and the fishing industry in Florida. Yet he seems to want to deal with the oil later. Perhaps it is disrupting his campaign and he thinks he has milked it for every penny he can.

"We want to see it...?"
What the hell does that mean!?

Instead of DEMANDING more skimmers to prevent the oil from reaching Florida's beaches, Crist is taking it as political opportunity to suck up to Obama in hopes of generating support for his senate campaign.

I thought Crist had scraped the bottom in contemptible behavior!
I was wrong.


  1. Crist is an opportunist and a fraud! He will say or do anything to get elected!
