Fox News' Megyn Kelly holds court on Turncoat candidate Charlie Crist

Fox News' Megyn Kelly discusses Florida Governor Charlie Crist's refusal to return the campaign donations made to him during his run for US senate as a republican.

Crist continued to accept donations late in to his primary campaign by claiming that he would NOT switch parties.

Crist strongly expressed his determination to remain a republican in his now infamous appearance on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. Here is the video of Crist lying to voters.

Crist was being stomped by his rival, former Florida house speaker, republican Marco Rubio.

Crist was more than 20 points down in the polls when he decided that he was no longer a "Reagan Republican" and would run as an Independent. That was just weeks after his appearance on Fox News Sunday. He then decided it was OK to keep the cash of those that believed his lies. Crist, I'm gonna KEEP IT!

Here is the video of "Kelly's Court" :

Charlie Crist: The oil spill is just a Nuisance

Florida's Governor Charlie Crist conducted an interview with CBS News' anchor Harry Smith on Pensacola Beach on Monday.

During the interview, Smith asks Crist if he is concerned that the Gulf oil spill may be making the water toxic.

Crist's response?

"It's much more of a nuisance than it is anything else right now."

Crist goes on to say that the spill itself was a catastrophe.

However, if you recall, I recently posted a quote from Charlie Crist stating that the oil spill wasn't as if "the sky is falling"

It seems that Crist has developed the same attitude as the Obama administration when it come to dealing the oil spill.

The nuisance quote comes in about the 30 second mark of the video:

Video: Marco Rubio interview on Cavuto 6-28-10

Marco Rubio goes after the current administration on fiscal policy and blasts their response to the Gulf oil spill during an interview with Stuart Varney on Fox News "Your World".

"My focus is to shrink the debt and grow the economy..."

The bottom line is that we need to create jobs in America..."

On health care and Kagen: "The role of a justice is not to be a political operative..."

"Don't call them "the rich" call them "job creators"

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.

Charlie Crist Claims "Hundreds of Thousands" of Jobs SAVED in Florida

Florida Governor Charlie Crist will say ANYTHING to get himself elected as Florida's next US senator.

Often within weeks of positing a position on issue "A" he reverses himself and chooses position "B" on the same issue.

This habit is well documented even in the "Main Stream Media".

Changing a position for political expediency is one thing. But to just flat out lie by making up the facts as you go along seems somewhat pathological.

Charlie Crist has done just that.

His official website claims that the Obama stimulus saved 80 thousand Florida jobs. Crist was the only Republican Governor to endorse Obama's plan.
"Governor Crist wisely utilized stimulus funding, making sure federal taxes paid by Floridians returned home to the Sunshine State. Because of Governor Crist’s leadership, over 20,000 teachers’ positions and 60,000 additional jobs throughout our state were saved, while important infrastructure projects were started."

Yet during his recent interview with Time, Crist clearly states that the stimulus saved "Hundreds of Thousands" of Florida jobs.

Crist: "Hundreds of thousands of people continue to have employment because of the stimulus..."

Forward to the 3:55 mark of the Time interview video to hear Crist in his own words.

Charlie Crist Wins Gold in Flip-Flop-Flip Drilling Debate

Crist Points to his position on Drilling

It's really enough to make your head spin:

Winning the Gold in the Flip-Flop competition is nothing new for Florida's Governor Charlie Crist these days. He has more "positions" than a Master Yoga instructor when it comes to whether to drill for oil off the coast of Florida.

Here is the latest in a bizarre transformation designed exclusively for the purpose of political expediency!

He takes the Gold Medal with a FLIP-FLOP-FLIP!! Spectacular...

Charlie Crist On Drilling November 2005:
"I don't think it's [Drilling] good for Florida," Crist said. "I have enormous, enormous respect for the governor [Jeb Bush], as you know. But we just disagree on this issue."
Tuesday, June 17, 2008
Florida's once-solid bipartisan opposition to drilling in the Gulf of Mexico shattered Tuesday when Gov. Charlie Crist reversed course and said the state may have to allow drilling to help lower gasoline prices.
Crist was among the Republicans expressing support for Sen. John McCain's call for lifting the federal moratorium along the Outer Continental Shelf and giving states a share of petroleum revenues as an incentive for them to allow oil and gas drilling off their coasts.
Crist continued his support until he decided to run as an Independent.

As a  Republican senatorial candidate Crist said on his official website 2010:

Florida should have the ability to explore natural resources off our coastline...

Then Crist decided to run as an Independent. Without knowing what his own core principles were, he changed his mind again after the Deep Water Horizon spill and decided that banning drilling was a good thing.

From Crist's official "Independent" senatorial website 2010:

...Charlie Crist advocates for a BAN on the issuance of offshore oil leases...

So in less than five years Charlie Crist has made up , or changed, his mind three times.
Is that the kind of leadership that Florida needs to send to Washington?

Video: Marco Rubio Speaks to Republican Jewish Coalition

This is the video of a major speech by Marco Rubio at the Republican Jewish Coalition on June 10th in Delray Beach Florida.

Rubio stresses the need to stand with Israel without equivocation or hesitation.

It's a very powerful presentation and typifies Rubio's belief in a strong National defense and America's history of support towards Israel.

Rubio deliberately and justifiably defends Israel's right to exit and offers his unwavering commitment  to those that support it.

Video: Marco Rubio Discusses Gulf Oil Spill with Larry Kudlow

Florida senatorial candidate Marco Rubio explains his position on "oil drilling" off the coast of Florida.

It's obvious that Rubio is concerned about what caused the disaster. He is more concerned about stopping the leak.

He is taking a pragmatic approach in the sense that he is saying --First we have to stop the leak!--Then determine what caused it!-Then decide about the future of offshore drilling in Florida.

Rubio stresses that he is in favor of drilling.

Tapping the resources available to the United States should be our priority. We must avoid being dependent on foreign oil until "alternative energy" is proven, affordable, and available on a mass scale. Otherwise we could damage an economic system that already seems to be on life support.

Marco Rubio: It's the worst whitehouse for Israel since Jimmy Carter

Marco Rubio blasts the Obama administration over their position on Israel.

In a radio interview with radio talk show host Lars Larson, Florida senatorial candidate Marco Rubio blasts the current administration's posture on Israel.

The interview continues with Rubio's strongly worded criticism of the Obama regime and Rubio gives his views and positions on "Card Check" and the Gulf oil spill.

Finally a leader with "Cajones"

Proof that Charlie Crist will say Anything to get Elected

Florida senatorial candidate Charlie Crist seems to change his mind along with his socks. (If he wears any).

With the disaster of the BP Gulf oil spill, Crist has again taken an opportunity to become politically expedient on an issue that not only faces Florida but the entire nation.

I was curious about Crist's position on off shore drilling so I visited his senatorial election campaign website.

This is where I captured a "screen shot" of his position on drilling off of the coast of Florida. It was in the "drop down" menu under the heading "Energy" which has now been removed.  Here it is:
But now that the spill has occurred, Charlie is suddenly calling for a BAN on offshore drilling. The screen capture above was available less than a day ago.

When I went to the site today, I was surprised to find that it had disappeared along with many other positions that Charlie Crist once held. There is plenty of time to get to those later.

Under a "NEW" heading in the "Issues" menu you will find "Charlie Crist on Offshore Drilling". It is a complete 180 from his previous position and is what Floridians have come to expect from a Flip-Flopping pandering Governor that will say or do anything to get elected. Here is his new position:

Charlie Crist has no principles. If you believe Michael Putney he also has "no judgement or cajones".

Charlie Crist said on his senatorial website:

"This dependency(on foreign oil)  results in over $700 Billion being sent overseas to countries that hate America and kill our men and women in uniform."

Now he cant decide for HIMSELF whether this is true or not... 

In other words. When Charlie Crist reversed his opinion on drilling (twice), he decided that the troops were no longer an issue that he was concerned about. Get it? It's all about Charlie.

Breaking News! Charlie Crist Knew about Jim Greers "Diversion of Funds"

Charlie Crist
Money? What Money?

Jim Greer is the recently arrested former head of the Florida Republican Party. Greer was arrested at his home last week by Federal officials and charged on six counts of theft.

Current Florida Governor and (former republican) Charlie Crist is now running as an Independent for the Florida senate against republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Kendrick Meek.

Greer's lawyer has just implicated Charlie Crist by saying that he (Charlie Crist) was aware of the "arrangement".

This story just "got legs"!

By Beth Reinhard and Tampabay.com

Jim Greer's lawyer says Gov. Crist okayed diversion of GOP funds

Gov. Charlie Crist personally signed off on his former Republican party chairman's confidential fundraising role with the state party – according to Jim Greer's attorney, whose allegation contradicts the governor's statement that he "didn't know anything'' about the deal now part of a criminal investigation...

..."You guys work hard. You deserve it,'' Chase said Greer was told by the governor as they played pool in February 2009 at a Palm Beach golf tournament.

Crist, an independent candidate for Florida's open U.S. Senate seat, said Saturday that he didn't know about Victory Strategies until after Greer resigned in January. He said he knew Greer wanted to replace O'Rourke with Johnson, but was unaware that they set up a separate company and that Greer had a stake in it...

Marco Rubio will discuss Card Check Monday 06-07 in Ft Lauderdale

Miami, FL – In light of his opponents’ either sounding open to or openly supporting “card check” and the elimination of secret ballot union elections, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio will hold an event with the Associated Builders and Contractors Florida East Coast Chapter on Monday, June 7, at 3:30 p.m. in Ft. Lauderdale to talk about “card check” and its impact on workers, businesses and our economy. The following event is open to the media:

Monday, June 7, 2010:
3:30 p.m. EDT
Facchina Construction Of Florida
6600 N. Andrews Ave.
Suite 200
Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Rubio is on record as apposing "Card Check'.

“I oppose card check and any efforts like the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) to tip labor law in favor of unions through binding federal arbitration. I am concerned by labor unions’ unrelenting campaign for card check, which would eliminate workers’ right to a secret ballot in unionization elections. I believe workers’ rights should be protected and that a card check system would open the door to pressure and intimidation that would disrupt the workplace and threaten businesses’ livelihoods. I also oppose EFCA’s arbitration provision, which would give labor and management just months to reach a labor agreement before a contract is imposed by a federal arbitrator.”

Video: Neil Cavuto interviews Marco Rubio 6-1-10

Fox News' Neil Cavuto interviews Florida republican senate candidate Marco Rubio about a variety of subjects.

It's obvious that our wonderful Florida heat and humidity are here for the summer but Rubio stays on message despite it's intensity.

Marco Rubio Stands Tough against Washington Establishment

Florida republican senatorial candidate Marco Rubio has penned a tough editorial against the "Washington Establishment" at Townhall.com today.

In the article entitled "An Idea-Based Conservative Future". Rubio rails against the business as usual attitude prevailing in the nations capital. He blasts the uncontrolled spending as he offers solutions to a system that seems to be out of control.
America’s proud legacy of limited government, free enterprise and personal responsibility is under assault in Washington in the form of Obamacare, the so-called stimulus and cap and trade. Washington is broken, and there’s a fundamental question voters must ask themselves this election year: Who do you trust to fix it?... 
So what do we do to avoid their fate? Here are some commonsense ideas that will help reverse the trend we are on and put us back on the right track:

First, we should freeze non-defense and non-veteran discretionary spending at pre-Obama levels. Though it’s a relatively small part of the budget, non-defense and non-veteran discretionary spending has ballooned in recent years and must be brought under control. We should cancel the unspent stimulus funds, repeal a TARP program that has evolved into a revolving bailout and slush fund, and sunset discretionary spending programs every 10 years after the Census. This will force our political leaders to evaluate the success and cost effectiveness of each and every government program on a regular basis. Lastly, we must also rein in the size and compensation of federal government workers. We need a freeze on civilian employment and adjust their pay and benefits, which are now some 70% higher than their private sector counterparts...
