    Introduced by a Democratic state representative at a gathering of hundreds of senior citizens at a condo complex in heavily Democratic Broward County on Wednesday, Florida governor and U.S. Senate candidate Charlie Crist thanked God that he was no longer a Republican.

    "You know, I used to be a Republican," Crist told the adoring crowd after an introduction by Democratic state Rep. Ari Porth. When a woman in the audience yelled out, "Thank God!" Crist immediately said, "Yeah, thank God. Right — used to be!"

    The statement came the same day Washington Examiner columnist Timothy P. Carney revealed that former senator and Republican presidential nominee Bob Dole contributed $1,000 to Crist's Senate campaign against GOP nominee Marco Rubio. Carney provided the Federal Election Commission record documenting Dole's cash donation.

    During Bill Clinton's first term as president, Dole as Senate minority leader was instrumental in stopping HillaryCare from becoming law. But after retiring from the Senate, the Kansan became a highly paid Washington lobbyist with the law firm of Alston & Bird, which counts the National Association for Home Care and Hospice as a client.

    Crist and I agree on something. I'm glad that he left the GOP, too. Now, I'm just waiting for the voters in FL to dump him.

    Another RINO anyway. Sadly, he's still stealing support away from Rubio.

    I'm not a Crist fan, and I don't live in Florida, so my opinion on that race really doesn't matter.


    I do think he's right in one sense, although he is specifically referring to the GOP because he was a member of that party until recently. That is, that most americans are sick of both parties and would like to have some better options out there.

    No he's a lower form than a RINO. He's not even a RINO anymore, just a turncoat. Sick that the guy won't refund the contributions made to him by Florida Republicans before he decided that he couldn't win the Republican primary.

    Now I'm glad that I live in Florida, so I can vote against him. The problem is, which of the alternatives is best? I'm sick of all the mudslinging by all the canddates.

    Crist has no loyalty to anything other than his ego. He'd turn his backs just as quickly on the democrats if he thought it would get him more votes.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
