Charlie Crist is One Shameless Piece of Work
LifeNews reports that Charlie Crist, the RepublIndependeCrat candidate for the U.S. Senate in Florida has scrubbed from his website any reference to his former dubious claims of commitment to the sanctity of life:
Tallahassee, FL (LifeNews.com) -- In the latest development in the race for the open U.S. Senate seat in Florida, Governor Charlie Crist is coming under fire for removing the pro-life section of his campaign website. This comes on the day the legislature sent him a bill that would allow women to see an ultrasound of their baby before an abortion.Ed Morrissey has more:
Crist has already hinted he will veto the legislation, which also allows Florida to opt out of some of the abortion funding under the new national health care law President Barack Obama signed.
That he would potentially veto a pro-life bill will broad support from voters is another indication of his strategy to leave the Republican Party and run as an independent.
Knowing he may veto the bill, the campaign of pro-life Republican candidate Marco Rubio informed LifeNews.com today that Crist's campaign scrubbed his web site of a section touting Crist as a supposedly pro-life candidate.
"Now that he has left the Republican Party in order to win an election and is trying to attract liberal votes, the Crist campaign yesterday removed the 'pro-life/family' issue page of its website," Rubio spokesman Alex Burgos told LifeNews.com today. "In doing so, Charlie Crist eliminated any reference to being 'pro-life' in a transparent attempt to hide his position in order to win an election."
"Crist is flip-flopping again," Burgos continued. "When he was a Republican trying to win the Republican primary, Crist repeatedly stated he was pro-life and even said he would 'fight for pro-life legislation if he’s elected to the Senate.'"
"Will Charlie Crist flip-flop further, no longer call himself 'pro-life' and revert back to his 1998 pro-choice position?" he asks.
The Rubio campaign made a screen shot of the pro-life section formerly appearing on the Crist web site.
What does a man whose only political principle is his own survival do when attempting to distance himself from his former political party? If you answered “go pro-choice,” then you get the Florida kewpie doll...My Comments:
Interesting and revealing, isn’t it, that “sanctity” disappeared from Crist’s campaign at the same time he’s reinventing himself?
I'll say it again: John Cornyn and the rest of the GOP establishment who endorsed this guy are the biggest idiots in politics today.
Laura Ingraham has a hilarious take on what else is missing from Crist's website.
