Rubio Trying to Energize GOP Base Against Crist
In a message that Rubio e-mailed to supporters this morning, he pointed to the Journal article as evidence of Crist's willingness to change his mind about key issues:
Not only did Crist admit he's actively speaking with Harry Reid and left the door open to caucusing with Democrats if elected, he also flip-flopped on supporting Justice Sonia Sotomayor, admitting that he "probably" lied about what he truly believed in order to win Republican votes. Most importantly, Crist says he now supports the President's health care law. With more Americans opposing ObamaCare and a clear majority of Floridians calling for its repeal, Crist's latest attempt to say and do anything to win an election, or in this case gain some Democrat favor, has now put him out of the mainstream.This kind of finger-in-the-wind politics is what's hurting America.
Mr. Crist believes he has stumbled on a political sweet spot, amid polls showing voters are angry at incumbents and disenchanted with both political parties.
