I am a registered independent but I am voting for Crist even though I can't stand the man. I would vote for an independant candidate but not a fool from the tea party.

Some people do not understand that the tea party people are mainly for less government, less spending, less debt and a balanced budget.

What is wrong with that?

Dont everyone budget their own money?

Crist already sold out the people of Florida so why on earth would anyone give him a chance to do it from Washington is beyond me.

Rubio has all the tools to do very well.

We need more conservative minded people who will not spend us into a depression with wasteful spending and out of control debt like it is today.

Crist wants to ban future oil drilling--most Floridians are in favor of a ban.

Most floridians also disapprove of the Obama agenda. Crist = Obama's lapdog if he gets elected.

We do not need more spills, or more oil washing up on our beaches. It's not partisan--that's just commen sense.

we also don't need another $1 trillion stimulus paid for by the people's republic of China. As it stands now, there is no check/balance to the trio of Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. I doubt that Rubio's first order of business is to get offshore drilling going again, unless you know something I don't

I'd be much more concerned about trying to change the direction of where this entire country is heading. Nearly a year-and-a-half into the Obama/Reid/Pelosi era, UE continues to be sky-high, and private sector economic growth is anemic. The government won't get us out of this economic funk, the private sector will.

Btw, you do realize this whole oil situation is really a lose-lose scenario, right? If we curtail domestic production, we end up importing more oil from countries that don't necessarily have our interests at heart (OPEC, Venezuela, Nigeria etc.). I would rather not have Obama end up with unchecked power on top of that by electing a turncoat like Charlie Crist to the senate. And trust me, Obama is going to end up in a long line of presidents who end up paying lip service to the problem of foreign oil dependence.

Why are you trying to turn this into an Obama issue. I assume you live here, aren't you concerned about our beaches?

absolutely. I am also concerned about the lack of the economic recovery both here and in other states under Obama's guidance. The UE rate continues to be unacceptably high IMO, and the housing market just keeps getting worse. Housing is tied to UE, and UE won't improve until businesses start hiring. I assume you live here too --- doesn't the economy bother you at all?

Btw, can you please tell me how Rubio is goiing to impact the beaches? Do you honestly see him introducing new legislation in the senate after what just happened.

Like I said before, either way, we are screwed in that regard. I'd rather have a good economy and bad oil policy than a bad economy and bad oil policy. Crist embraced Obama's stimulus, and a year later, NO JOBS!

I'd rather take oil from Venezuela than have oil washing up on our beaches.
