Much has been said about the detestable weasel backstabber Charlie Crist finally doing what we all knew he was going to do–register as a Democrat.
Many Republicans, conservatives, and other Crist haters, including the officials at the Republican Party of Florida have quickly condemned Crist for essentially coming full circle and finally being “true to self” and registering as a Democrat after years of undermining conservatism.
That is the wrong approach, in my opinion.
Not to toot my own horn (toot toot), but I have been on the forefront of calling out this weasel politician for his treachery and opportunism for about seven years now. I called him out and exposed him when he was at the top, when just about every Republican adored and respected him (or pretended to out of political expediency), when his minions controlled the Republican Party of Florida (i.e., Jim Greer, George LeMieux and others), and when they were all in a position to enact political retribution–which they did. I and a handful of others called him out, and we paid the price. We were exiled from our own party, but ultimately we defeated him and his circle of crap, exposed them for the criminals they all were, and Floridians of all stripes are better off for it.
Those of us who have battled Crist over the years know him to be utterly and completely devoid of principles and conviction. As such, to say that Crist has finally come home to the Democrat Party is false. 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 →
After months of fundraising, campaigning, scheming, punching, and counter-punching, candidates across Florida saw the fruits of their efforts come (and go) in the couple of hours after polls closed at 7pm yesterday.
Many outcomes were expected, some were surprising, and a few were just plain bizarre. On that note, what’s up with Central Florida? I mean, they actually elected the prosecutor who botched the Casey Anthony Trial as their new State Attorney? Seriously? Oh well. I digress.
Anyway, this is a recap of election results and how things stand in some of the races we at Reaganista.com took a position on: Continue reading →
By now it’s old news that George LeMieux decided to drop out of Florida’s Republican Primary for US Senate.
Despite his statement, his decision to withdraw from the race was not borne out of some altruistic desire for the GOP to defeat Bill Nelson. Had he any genuine desire for that, he would have never waged an all-out character assassination campaign against the candidate who he knew all along was going to be the Republican nominee. Not only were most of Continue reading →
And tonight he lost a Republican Executive Committee straw poll he and his team were touting and using to mock his main primary opponent to a candidate that few in Republican circles know and doesn’t even register in the polls.
