Rep. Weatherford’s Challenging Question to Charlie Crist


will-weatherfordFlorida Speaker of the House Will Weatherford has just posed a poignant question to former Governor Charlie Crist, one that will undoubtedly be repeatedly asked of him, were he decided to run against Rick Scott in the 2014 Gubernatorial election.

 Former Republican, and now Democrat Charlie Crist, has been  considering a run against Scott, but will have a tough go at it, as Democrats around the state are skeptical about his chances of overcoming his chameleon-like political evolution from a Conservative Republican, to a left-leaning Democrat.

 Crist jumped ship from the GOP when he saw that he would lose the 2010Republican Senatorial primary against Senator Marco Rubio.

 If he wants to be Governor so bad again, if he wants to come back to the state of Florida, and lead our state, why did he leave us when we had a 12% unemployment rate, and the state of Florida was having its hardest times? Weatherford continued,” Florida really needed a leader and stick up for them, why did he chose to leave?

 I don’t know how he is going to answer it. –Rep. Will Weatherford

    Crist showed his true colors and has the lost the trust of many voters. He needs to sit down and be quiet.

    I don’t know how things are up in Willville but they sure as hell ain’t good in Miami. That said, Reptile Charlie is a man without a party, identity or base. He left us to seek the bigger piece of the pie but crashed and burned in his feeble efforts.I’m not crazy about Lex Luthor but he’ll beat Crist like a drum.

    I sure hope he runs so I can have the small pleasure of voting against him but also the larger pleasure of seeing him lose. Again.

    In fact, I hope he continues to run for offices I get to vote for.

    Charlie Crist, like Arlan Specter, is the consummate politician without principles or morals. Both losers.

  • Tony Dominick

    Charlie Crist disappointed many of us, on both sides of the isle. He expected to be the VP running mate of John McCain, since that never happened he wanted to be the Senator from Florida and decided to abandon his responsibilities as Governor of Florida. However, Mr. Rubio did his homework and made the phone calls necessary to gather the support before he announced he was running for the office. Charlie assumed he had the support, never asking anyone. Like he turned from us, I turned from him and will never support him for anything, let alone vote for him.

    If Crist gets the nomination, the Dems have shown themselves to be true robots because they voted against him en-masse when he was a Republican, but just because it’s advantageous for him to run as a Dem, they vote for him? If so, then they have PROVEN themselves not to vote on principle, but on robotic instinct alone.

      Oh, really??
      Look at the idiots teabaggers vote for just because they have the GOP/teabagger label on them.
      Christine O’Donnell?
      A bunch of loonies but teabaggers vote for them!

        Rich, Did you get the full time paid position at “Organizing for Action”?
        If not please apply immediately, the quota for committed statist socialists can always be raised for your “talent”.

  • S.S. McDonald

    Today, Charlie Crist works for the very liberal Morgan & Morgan law firm: BIG Obama supporters. He was doing TV advertising for Morgan & Morgan until recently. Who do you suppose is behind the the push to run Reptile Charlie for governor again?

  • Nancy Celano

    Two things I despise in, not only politics, but, in real life, are liars and turncoats. Crist, Christie, and Obama are perfect examples of both.
