  •  Thoughtful and humble? Charlie Crist??? (4+ / 0-)

    Surely you are not talking about the current Governor of Florida - Charlie what's my next office Crist??? Governor Suntan? Governor I'm not gay, I'm married???

    Thoughtful, humble - the last Governor of Florida that I would apply those attributes to is the great Walking Lawton Chiles.

    Crist is all facade and no substance.

    •  So having a tan makes you phony? (0+ / 0-)

      And rumors of someone being gay makes them awful? If he is gay, I think it is a shame that he has to pretend to be straight, but no one should call him a phony for that. There are tons of pressure on people, especially in the South to be straight. It is a shame he lives in the prejudiced world we live in, but that shouldn't count against him, IMO.

      Crist has been a pretty damn good governor. I understand he rubs you the wrong way, but that is no reason to dismiss him completely.

      Already going hell, just pumping that gas.

        Having one in FL? No.

      •  Do you live here? (0+ / 0-)

        Crist is the worst governor in the thirty years I've lived here- worse than Jeb ever was.

        Pretending to be straight when you are gay makes you phony.  I don't know about you, but I prefer my politicians to be honest about who they are - gay or straight.  I don't want someone in office who is too ashamed of who he is to live his life openly and honestly. If he doesn't have the courage to live his life as he is - he doesn't earn my vote or respect.

        Moreover, if the rumors are true and he is gay, his position opposing gay adoption and his support of defining marriage of the union of a man and a woman really makes him a phony and someone I do not want in any office.

      Lawton chile, Bob Graham, Reuban Askew.  Charlie Crist, not on the list.  I guess I'm parochial.  As a teacher, I look at Charlie's  educational policies and funding and try not to vomit on my shoes.  Yes, he took the stimulus money.  That gave him another year to play possum on our budget realities. Yes, I guess Rubio would be worse but to me Charlie Crist is one step above roland Burris.

      Always grateful to wake up alive.
