Governor Crist weighs in:


Gov. Charlie Crist said his rival for the U.S. Senate, Marco Rubio, has no one to blame but himself for double-billing the state and Republican Party of Florida for eight plane tickets when he was House Speaker. Rubio has accused Crist of leaking his party credit card records to The Miami Herald and St. Petersburg Times.

"If he wants to find out who to blame for this, he should look in the mirror. He is the one who made these charges, not me, not any of my friends,'' Crist said at a road construction event in Broward County. "I mean, you know, when you do something like that you ought to just take personal responsibility."

.....

"The people will decide this issue,'' Crist said. "I think its pretty clear that they dont like that kind of double dipping. Its just like taxpayers money. You ought to treat those funds in a (very) sacred way...Like I said yesterday, welcome to the NFL. If you cant take the heat get out of the kitchen."

.....




Wonder how the Tea Partiers fancy their young star now, just learning that they and their economically strapped brethren in Florida have been supporting Rubio's personal lifestyle on their dime.

Somehow, I don't think all of them will swallow it whole.

1. If republicans steal from the state or the government
other republicans want it to be ignored. That's so they can get someone to dig into the records and see a democrat crossed the street on a red light. CNN will help they censored the Health Debate as best they could in republican favor. Boy they are working their ass off trying to out fox their "news" reporting as to the likes of fox.

5. Oh well, and I was really hoping Crist would jump ship
and make things messy for the Repug. See how quickly things can turn over?

6. DeMint: Marco Rubio's AmEx spending 'doesn't change anything,'
From Alex Leary at Tampa Bay Buzz
March 2, 2010



Sen. Jim DeMint, one of the earliest backers of Marco Rubio, says he's unfazed by reports of Rubio's American Express spending.

"I think his spending is small when compared to others when I've seen them compared," the South Carolina Republican said this afternoon. "It's actually interesting to see that Marco has made such an impression and is so far ahead that now they're going after trivial things instead of policy things. That doesn't change anything. It just shows that somebody's desperate."




Strident. Dogmatic. Steeped in the toxic brew of a sociopath.


These radical right conservatives know of no other existence.
