Now watch Democrats drool and slobber all over him. Sorry fellow Dems, but I won’t be one of them:
(CNN) – Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who served his state as a Republican then sought office as an independent, tweeted Friday night that he switched his party affiliation to Democrat. [...]
“I’ve had friends for years tell me, ‘You know Charlie, you’re a Democrat and you know it,‘” Crist told the Tampa Bay Times newspaper.
The question is, what kind of Democrat? Color me skeptical.
He has a mixed record on gay issues. He supported school vouchers and a constitutional amendment for school prayer, was rated A- by the NRA, “indicating a pro-gun rights voting record.” Here is his past history on more issues. He’s fine on some things, but he’s such a flip-flopper, such an opportunist, that his political gymnastics simply leave me cold.
If he ran for Florida governor, would he be an improvement over Rick Scott? Just about anybody would be.
So welcome to the party, Charlie, but all I can muster up at this point is a rather muted “meh.” At best.
