Florida Gov. Charlie Crist spent what is likely his last day as a Republican candidate coolly sidestepping questions from a horde of reporters who dogged his every move.

Crist remained coy Wednesday even as evidence mounted of his intentions. Various outlets said Crist told major donors he’ll abandon the August primary and run for U.S. Senate as an independent in November.

Crist’s campaign scheduled a “qualifying” event at 5 p.m. today in his hometown of St. Petersburg.

That would set up a three-way November race with leading Republican contender Marco Rubio and the presumptive Democratic candidate, U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek. LINK

 Shades of  “Benedict” Arlen Specter in Florida as Governor Charlie Crist is about to announce his impending departure from the Republican party. The only real question is will this loser be accepted into the ranks of the Democrat party. I guess when you believe in nothing concrete except that America is the source of all the worlds problems, is really an evil country and that taxpayer money grows on trees that’s your natural home. Good riddance to bad pay.

Look I can accept that some times things change that may prompt a politician to have a real, profound change of views and that they may begin to identify more closely with a different party and feel the need to change.

Um… actually no I don’t. That’s just pure B.S. These people are PROFESSIONAL politicians who will do or say ANYTHING to stay in power even if it means jumping parties or declaring their “Independence”. Just like “Benedict” Arlen, Crist is the same kind of low life politician who would do anything to stay in power. Even betray his own party. You can’t expect me to believe that Crist or Specter suddenly believes all the tenants of the Democrat party. Thats just insane and is typical of the contempt these politicians have for the American citizens they are supposed to represent. Instead they only care about their own grip on power.

Politicians are not to be respected in my book. They are to be reviled as they lying, power mad sycophants most of them are. Period.

Good Bye Charlie. You won’t be missed.

    Like Specter the Defector, Crist changed his stripes because he was about to lose. Typical politician. This is exactly why we need term limits.

  2. Wyatt Earp says:

    Term limits for Congress and the Senate, I mean.

  3. Dustoff says:


    I agree.

    PS. I hear Crist is fooling around on giving back the GOP money.


  4. Old NFO says:

    Term limits is right… Hopefully he will be ‘term limited’ in Nov!

  5. Ingineer66 says:

    He says he is doing it for the people. BS he is doing it to try and save his skin because he can’t get a real job. The people were speaking when he was 20 points down in the polls.
