      Is your comment what pases for legitimate criticism?

      What kind of Democrat are you who would rather support a lifelong Republican than find a real Democrat?

        1) People are allowed to change their minds for the better
        2) A liberal that loses ain't worth a bucket of warm spit

          I can imagine supporting Crist, however reluctantly, and thankful -- as one other commenter has noted here -- that he'll be a governor, i.e., that he won't be representing the rightward rot of the Democratic Party on the national level.

          But this is hardly cause for rejoicing.

          •  I can appreciate some folks not acting (0+ / 0-)

            with enthusiastic fondness but as I sit in a mixed political county and see how well this particuliar county works yet has to fight tooth and nail for any school programs and no jobs........we have to overtake Scott.  I am a dem through and through but when some idiot dictator gets into office, then I would vote for anyone to rid us of this horrible horrible person. Anyone that was not a teabagger.  He is controlled by money.   He is a tea party governor and he hates Floridians.

              Rejoice if and when Scott is defeated.  But rejoice because Crist gets seated in his place?  That's desperate.

                stance is, that without generating some enthusiasm for Crist it will be impossible to get rid of Scott. Crist ain't my dream Democrat either, but Scott is a monster. There aren't many Democrats that I wouldn't support against him.

              that Jeb Bush isn't challenging Scott?

          •  Getting a medicaid exapansion... (0+ / 0-)

            that would save hundreds, probably thousands of lives, and save many times that famillies from bankruptcy, would that be a cause for rejoicing?

        •  Changing to Win (0+ / 0-)

          Crist didn't change his mind for the better. He's exactly the same, except he's changed his party for the campaign.

          No, he's changing only because he lost as a Republican. We all laughed at Lieberman for doing that, and he didn't even join the Republican Party.

          Florida is a big state that's as Democratic as it is Republican in its population. Democrats can find a winning candidate among actual Democrats, not literal Democrats In Name Only.
