Charlie Two-Face: Former GOP Florida Gov. Crist Joins the Democrats

Guest Post by Mike LaRoche

Charlie Crist, the former Republican governor of Florida from 2007 to 2011, who ran for the U.S. Senate from that state as an independent in 2010 and was subsequently throttled by Marco Rubio, has decided to formally join the Democratic Party three months after having spoken at the Democratic National Convention on behalf of President Barack Obama’s re-election.  From the Associated Press:

Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who was elected as the state’s chief executive as a Republican and then ran for the U.S. Senate as an independent, announced on Twitter on Friday night that he’s switching to the Democratic Party.

Crist sent out a Tweet that said, “Proud and honored to join the Democratic Party in the home of President (at)Barack Obama!”

The Tweet included a photo of a smiling Crist and an unidentified woman as he held up a Florida voter registration application. The Tampa Bay Times reports that Crist signed the papers changing his affiliation from independent to Democrat at a Christmas reception at The White House.

There is rampant speculation that Crist may run for a second term as governor in 2014 as a Democrat, challenging the Republican incumbent, Gov. Rick Scott.  Any Floridians daft enough to be considering voting for former Gov. Crist might want to consider H.L. Mencken’s wise words from many decades ago: “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”

    Republicans who become Democrats were never Republicans to begin with.

    It took him long enough to show his true colors. Thank God Rubio beat him.

    This is good. All other RINOs should follow his lead.

    Don’t care what he does. Life’s too short to waste time fretting over a schizophrenic state like FL.

    There’s a bigger problem that needs to be taken care of – reclaiming the Republican Party from the scumbag squishes and gentry GOP-types that have hijacked it, or destroying it and replacing it with an actual conservative party.

  • Ghost

    ya’ gotta say it with the hand and arm gesture that matches, “…good and hard.”

  • dba_vagabond _trader

    I heard Crist is one of those old white dudes who services Hussein.

    He should’ve gone ahead of the curve and joined the Communist Party.

    Everyone I know from FLorida says he is gay. Whether left or right.

  • these politicans switching parties shows how little conviction they have and how desperate they are to stay in office permanently.

    Was there ever any doubt?

    Word on the street in Tallahassee is that Charlie Christ is also coincidentally converting to islam and will receive his own gold ring with arabic text inscribed thereon pledging his allegiance to allah… just like the one Barack wears.

  • Anna

    It’s because they’re both gay. Birds of a colorful feather, eh?

    Most have forgotten Charlie Crist and Jeb Bush refused to attempt to save the life of Teri Schiavo. In my opinion they both expedited the murder process, giving the green light for a crooked and evil judge to honor the wishes of the man who tried to kill her in the first place. Her husband.

    Many politicians are getting into the murder by proxy game. And a dangerous game it is for innocent people.

    The American murders at Benghazi is another example of murder by proxy. obama has gotten away with murder and he is above the law just like the others who play the game.

  • Patty

    When I see these two together, I see in Dictionary the word EGO. WOW, YOU CAN JUST TELL BY A PERSON’S DEMEANOR THEY HAVE A “BIG” EGO.

    Where else could Crist go and not be spat upon? At least to his face.

  • As a Red Sox fan this is the equivalent of unloading Carl Crawford on the Dodgers.
