Re the March 21 story Poll: Former Gov. Charlie Crist would crush Gov. Rick Scott in 2014 race: Please tell me that the Florida voters are smart enough to not vote for Charlie Crist for governor again.
This is a man with no character “compass” who plays this political game like a weatherman. The once-staunch Republican, turned independent — and now a registered Democrat — seems to be getting ready to announce his bid to run for governor again.
Yes, he is a charismatic man who can win over voters. Yet he was not respected by members of the Legislature or considered a visionary that had well-thought-out plans for this state. His stand on issues was based on whatever was popular, and he was a magician at sidestepping issues when asked to take a position.
Surely, the majority of voters can’t be that stupid to elect a man with no position, except one that will get him enough votes. I hope they see through this charade. The Democratic Party should stand up to such a fraud — it deserves a better candidate.
