“You know, we just got through (electing) a politician who can run his mouth at Mach 1, a black one… He can go as fast as the speed of light and has no idea what he’s saying.”

Col. Bud Day, Fort Walton Beach attorney and Medal of Honor winner, has publicly endorsed Gov. Charlie Crist as his pick to occupy the Senate seat.
“I think he’s been a really good governor and shows all the possibility of being the same kind of good senator,” Day said.
The endorsement, issued Monday, comes as Rubio surges far ahead of Crist in most public opinion polls.
The two Republican candidates face off in an Aug. 24 primary for the Senate seat vacated by Mel Martinez.
The winner would likely face Democratic U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek in November for the right to succeed Martinez in Washington.
Rubio has successfully portrayed Crist as a willing partner with President Barack Obama in spending billions in taxpayer dollars through the federal stimulus package.
Day, however, said he questions Rubio’s “financial dealings” and views him as something of an Obama clone.
“You know, we just got through (electing) a politician who can run his mouth at Mach 1, a black one, and now we have a Hispanic who can run his mouth at Mach 1,” Day said. “You look at their track records and they’re both pretty gritty. Charlie has not got a gritty track record.”
Day confirmed he was speaking of Obama and Rubio.
“You’ve got the black one with the reading thing. He can go as fast as the speed of light and has no idea what he’s saying,” Day said. “I put Rubio in that same category, except I don’t know if he’s using one of those readers.”
Of couse, Col. Bud Day’s remarks are making waves in the state-run media.
