I'll be giving my vote to Rubio...we are voting next week.
Governor Crist has truly shown just what an infantile snob he is when he bolted from the GOP after Mr. Rubio climbed out of obscurity, doing the "If you don't play my way, I'm taking my football and going home!" play. I'm deployed in Kuwait right now, and Gov. Crist showed up at the departure ceremony over an hor late, having directed his plant to the wrong location and leaving us just standing there on the floor in formation with our wives and families waiting, costing us more than a few of those precious last few minutes together(about an hour). You can tell a lot about someone's attitude and demeanor by their posture, and during the departure ceremony, Crist sat in his chair all rumpled up like he didn't want to be there, and looked at us with contempt. He whisked out of there as soon as the ceremony was over with his attitude "Hey, the photo op's over with, let's jet!", not even taking the time to talk to some of his National Guardsmen headed for the Middle East. Compare him with Jeb Bush, who visited us twice while we were in Afghanistan. While there, some of his representatives were asking soldiers about things like their spouses' employment, medical care, etc., and checking up afterward (Commanders were told of this, and anyone having such problems was encouraged to talk to them). Gov. Bush would also insist on having lunch with the troops, Sergeants and below to spend time and talk with them. He also appeared at our Welcome Home celebration and stayed for at least a few hours afterward to talk with us troops, have photos, etc. THERE is a comparison between a real conservative and a Crist, the conceited Country Club RINO!!!
The sad thing is that by saying that he basically is telling those Republicans who supported him all these years a big "Fuck You".
It must gall so many that they cannot purge the last GOP moderates out of the party in Maine.
