Charlie Crist needs to get specific about his plan for Florida--if he has a plan! Attacking Rick Scott, however well-deserved, does not make Crist any better than Scott. Florida deserves a better governor than either one of them. Only one candidate has a real plan, and he isn't Scott or Crist.
Democrats should ask themselves: If Charlie Crist was such a good governor why didn't they vote for him over former Congressman Kendrick Meek to defeat Marco Rubio? Apparently Democrats didn't think much of Crist then. What's different now, except Crist now being a Democrat?
Has Florida Gov. Rick Scott done anything good for anyone other than big-money special interests? Big Sugar loves him, companies receiving fat Medicaid contracts love him, and railroads love him, among others. Shouldn't that tell us whom he's working for? What has he done for real people? Oh yeah, $25 off on vehicle registrations.
Charlie Crist is taking in millions from fat-cat trial lawyers, who expect him to appoint sympathetic judges--including 3 supreme court seats. Different party, same old Crist. Democrat Party bosses have shown their contempt for Florida voters by backing this guy.
Charlie Crist and Rick Scott attacking each other over health care in dueling ads is just a dogfight between two lapdogs of big-money special interests. Floridians deserve better, and there is one candidate with a real plan for improving health care in Florida.
Charlie Crist refuses to debate Nan Rich. Democrats should be outraged. They should vote for Nan Rich in the primary and show Crist's big-money special interests how disgusted they are.
The first step to stop big-money special interests from corrupting Florida's state government is an independent governor. The reason that special interests have contributed over $100,000,000 to Rick Scott and Charlie Crist is to make sure that special interests trump the people's interests. What other explanation can there be? And why do people act like that's OK, when it's not?
Would either Rick Scott or Charlie Crist veto a bill that was paid for and promoted by big-money special interests, especially when their party cronies passed it? Not likely. These days the big money pays both sides. Only an independent governor can veto corrupt legislation that sells out the people to special interests.
