The March 27 letter Not Crist again!, demonizing ex-Gov. Charlie Crist, puts two and two together and gets five. Crist was virtually being run out of the GOP because he shook the hand of the president and put his hand on his shoulder when he visited Florida after the state received federal stimulus money.
Now New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is in even more trouble because he praised President Obama on his quick action after Hurricane Sandy.
This is not the GOP that Crist or Christie signed up for. Instead, it’s a tea party from which a mutant Gov. Rick Scott emerged. With Scott’s terrible approval rating, he now is trying to reverse his previous, unconscionable actions believing Floridians to be so dumb that they will forget the first two years.
Crist is a man for the people. He is open to the views of others. That is exactly what a politician is supposed to be. I want a governor who cares about the people, not his next election, This is not the GOP of Reagan anymore.
