RPOF’s latest Crist attack also puts Republicans Palin, Ayotte in blast area

by George Bennett | July 18th, 2013

Today’s Republican Party of Florida attack on Charlie Crist recycles a 2010 Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee web video that lumped then-Gov. Crist with Republicans Sarah Palin and Kelly Ayotte as politicians who betrayed voters by abandoning their jobs.

At the time of the Democratic ad, Crist was Florida’s Republican-turned-independent governor whose no-party Senate campaign was siphoning votes from Democratic nominee Kendrick Meek.

The Democratic ad likened Crist to Palin, who resigned in the middle of her term as Alaska governor in 2009, and Ayotte, who stepped down as New Hampshire attorney general in 2009 to pursue a successful 2010 Senate bid. Unlike Palin and Ayotte, Crist didn’t leave office mid-term to run for Senate, but he did pass up running for re-election.

“Of course the DSCC ad took shots at many Republicans,” RPOF spokeswoman Susan Hepworth said. “The difference is Charlie Crist is now a Democrat. So the question is really for national Democrats: Do they still stand by their attack that Charlie Crist is a quitter?”

With Crist considered a likely Democratic candidate for governor in 2014, the state GOP has been running daily “This Date in CRIST-ory” attacks focused on Crist’s not-too-distant past as a Republican and as a Democratic target.

    The love, or should we say lack there of, of the leaders of the state and national G.O.P. will be the downfall of the party at both the state and federal level.

    We get a kick out of this question because no one can come up with an answer that will sooth the voters feelings.

    Name a single piece of G.O.P. sponsored legislation, proposed or passed, state or federal, that the sole intent was to improve the lives of a single member of the middle or lower class?

    The farm bill is a good example of how quick the G.O.P. is to subsidize the corporate farmer while they kick the school lunch program for the needy to the curb.

    At the state level the G.O.P. preachs fiscal responsibility, all the while they allow Mr. Scott to spend $48 million a year for drug testing welfare recipients and state workers where study after study has shown there is no need or savings with these test.

    Out come. By the end of the first term of Mr. Scott, the state will have spent $192 million for drug test that has done nothing but cost the taxpayers “$192 MILLION DOLLARS” for a program that has proven no savings to the taxpayers in any way shape or form.

    While I am not a big fan of Mr. Crist. I have not seen anything done by Mr. Scott that would want me to put him office for four more years.
