“No Labels” spokesman and backstabber Charlie Crist appeared on MSNBC this morning to talk about the elections and other drivel.
As part of his ongoing mission to suck up to Democrats, he blasted the GOP-dominated legislature for passing an election law that “makes it harder for my mother to vote” because she has to sign her name (which has always been a requirement to vote in Florida).
But his most entertaining bit this morning was his endorsement of the most vitriolic, divisive, mean-spirited congressman to ever disgrace the halls of the US Capitol. Continue reading →
If Florida politics is a joke, Charlie Crist is its punchline. Except, right when you think the punchline is finally over, it just gets more outrageous.
As has been widely reported, Florida’s former Republican governor, turned independent loser candidate, turned ambulance chaser spokesman Charlie Crist will address the Democratic National Convention tonight. News of this came after his endorsement of Barack Obama last week just days before the Republican National Convention kicked off in his own back yard.
Clearly, Florida’s do-nothing governor and perpetual candidate Charlie Crist is hoping Democrats are dumber than Republicans by welcoming him into their fold. Continue reading →
George Lemieux penned a cynical op-ed in the Tampa Bay Times yesterday in an effort to further distance himself from the person that he created, the Backstabber Charlie Crist.
Everyone in Florida Politics knows that Lemieux was responsible for creating Charlie. He was the maestro—he made it all happen. He won “Pollie” in 2006 for convincing Floridians that Crist was a conservative. LeMieux was chief-of-staff to Crist. Then after a year, he left the Governor’s office to consult (read: lobby), but still spoke to Crist on a daily basis. After all of that, Crist appointed Lemieux (out of nowhere) to the United States Senate, an honor and distinction that will be mentioned in the first line of Lemieux’s obituary some day.
Now Lemieux is “shocked,” just “shocked(!)” at Crist’s political transformation. He writes: Continue reading →
Those who read this blog regularly know that we at Reaganista.com have no qualms about holding our own accountable and our utter contempt for those we consider backstabbers.
We have even dedicated an entire section we call the “Backstabbers Corner” where we showcase those we have branded as such since the blog was launched and why they have joined political reprobates like the Backstabber Charlie Crist in earning such an unenviable designation.
In it, we describe backstabbers as:
…those who have committed some act of treachery or another that in our opinion makes them a backstabber. This can be anything from selling out principles, betraying friends, family, supporters and the party, to lying, snitching, or outright sedition.
We add RINOs, Democrats, and other such malcontents to this list as they arise. However, we have never added someone we deem an actual conservative until now. Continue reading →
It’s difficult sometimes to endorse a candidate when his opponent is a decent, honorable person. Such was the case when we at Reaganista.com recently urged our readers to support Jeff Brandes over Jim Frishe–Brandes in our estimation is more conservative, but we recognize that both he and Frishe are all-around good, decent guys.
But then there are races where one of the candidates is so unsavory due to both politics and personality, that it makes endorsing his or her opponent a lot more fun. Such is the case in the GOP primary for Florida’s House District 112, pitting former Senator Alex Diaz de la Portilla against former Representative and all-around detestable backstabber chivatoGus Barreiro.
