although I didn't vote for him Crist hasn't turned out to be a right wing lunatic I thought he would be and hugging Obama is the worst thing he has done?
He has put partisan politics aside and has worked for Floridians first.

This is not the first year that more people are leaving the state than coming in. The flight from Florida began during Bush's tenure.
Sorry but it's not Bush's fault.
Try again.
The MAIN reason that FL is the state with the most uninsured children, is because we are one of the states with the highest influx of ILLEGALS. Haitian, Guatamalan, Mexicans, Cubans..shall I go on?
Who come here on unsafe boats filled 5x to capacity and then have baby after baby while their husbands take jobs away from the AMERICANS.
I see the Guat women all the time walking or at the local Soup Kitchen, with 4 kids under 6 and one in her belly.

^ first of all Cubans are never illegals once they reach US shores and most kids are covered under the state SCHIPS plan anyways ,illegal or not.
What the hell is a Guat woman? I don't even know why I am responding to your idiocy!

Republicans are tired of voting for wolves in sheep's clothing. If you run as a conservative you better damn well govern like one. I'm sure the left has similar feelings in their party.

Default Flip Floppin' Charlie Crist Scrambling To Produce Conservative Bonafides

Well, the Democrats aren't the only flip floppers out there. Take a look a Florida's Charlie Crist:

The Associated Press: Analysis: With election near, Gov. Crist changes

No wonder the resistance is backing Rubio in 2010.

Yeah, this guy is like the wind. He even denies supporting the stimulus even in the face of all kinds of proof that he did support it, including handwritten letters to politicians in DC!

It would seem that Rubio could exploit these fluctuations with success.

Funny thing is, Crist has a better shot of getting into the White House than Sarah Palin and Huckabee combined...

Crist is the best chance for Florida remaining a GOP hold in 2010 for the Senate. Rubio gives the Democrats a chance to pick up a seat to off-set the losses elsewhere in the country (Nevada, Delaware, Arkansas)

I have to agree with Cityperson9. The number of far right pundits that have been singing Rubio's praises lately reminds of the gang that were out there helping the Democrats to take NY23, a seat the Rs have held since about 1880!

Go Rubio, go!
