Charlie Crist Caught Lying About Support for Porkulus: Exposed by Rolling Stone
Ed Morrissey reports:
... Dickinson posted the transcript of that question and answer yesterday at Rolling Stone:(emphasis in original)Rolling Stone: Just a final question: Had you been in the Senate, would you have voted with the other Republicans for the stimulus package?Why did Dickinson decide to post this? He objected to Crist’s “going wobbly” on Porkulus, but it goes beyond wobbliness. Crist attempted to tell CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that he never endorsed it at all:
Crist: Absolutely.“I didn’t endorse it, I didn’t even have a vote on the darn thing.”That’s not wobbliness, it’s a flat-out lie, as Dickinson’s transcript makes clear. Crist was busy helping Obama promote the bill in Florida, after all, while it was still politically popular. Its failure has made it toxic to Crist, but rather than admit that he was wrong for backing it, he’d rather try to rewrite history instead. Dickinson just reminds us that Crist’s support for this was not nebulous at all, but absolute.
Can you say U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio?
