Charlie Crist announces he's going to be a Democrat



quote:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who was elected the state's chief executive as a Republican and then ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate as an independent, announced on Twitter on Friday night that he's switching to the Democratic Party.

The announcement fanned speculation that Crist would seek to regain his old job from Republican Gov. Rick Scott in 2014.

Crist sent out a tweet that said, "Proud and honored to join the Democratic Party in the home of President (at)Barack Obama!"

The tweet included a photo of a smiling Crist and his wife Carole as he held up a Florida voter registration application. The Tampa Bay Times reports that Crist signed the papers changing his affiliation from independent to Democrat at a Christmas reception at the White House. President Barack Obama greeted the news with a fist bump.

"I've had friends for years tell me, 'You know Charlie, you're a Democrat and you don't know it,'" Crist told the newspaper Friday night.

He cited the Republican Party's shift to the right on a range of issues, including immigration, education and the environment.

Just a politician riding the wave.

He won't leave a legacy with such a fickle values set.

The man has not one iota of a spine to make him stand upright. His mission in life is to get elected to public office, but he has no internal beliefs that would make a large enough portion of a populace vote for him.

Colonel Toddy, do you live in a bubble of a year behind in everything? Or do your daily kos, media matters, progressive communism now, talking points get to you late because you are not a gold member?

This is old news. Crist turncoated at the sick, godless, DNC convention.

Nobody gives a shite he did this for the win, Alex. He is a progressive turncoat; have fun with the new poster of him on your wall.

Its completely fitting that he waited until after the election to solidify his move. The guy is a political opportunist, plain and simple.
