Is Charlie Crist a Possible VP Candidate for Obama in 2012 … NO!


To borrow a quote from VP Joe Biden, Crist is no bog F’n deal …

The Shark Tank asks the question, Is Charlie Crist a potential VP Pick…for Obama? To answer their question … NO!!! Why would Obama take on a turncoat Republican who has no idea if he is an Independent, Democrator RINO? Actually, Crist will be whatever makes it possible for him to retain some sort of government power. Believe it or not, in today’s political environment, one actually has to stand for something.

In spite of assertions made to the contrary by Vice President Joe Biden, speculation continues to swirl around the possibility that President Obama will replace Biden on the 2012 Presidential ticket for someone with less of a propensity for gaffes as well as for a younger and more ‘moderate’ candidate in order to appeal to the thousands of disenfranchised ‘Independents’ across the country.

Charlie Crist, once a very popular sitting Governor, finishes the year with a remarkable 50% approval rating-even after losing to Rubio by 19 points. Crist finished with 30% of the vote, while Democrat Kendrick Meek finished 3rd with 20%. This numbers are very telling when you consider that if Crist ran as a Democrat, and not just a Democrat-lite candidate, he would have garnered, at least 10-15% more of the vote and made it a fairly close election.

What? If Crist ran as a Donkey he would have received 10-15% more of the vote? How naive an analysis is this? How could anyone presume that if Crist ran as a Democrat that he would have received the same amount of the Independent or GOP vote for that matter. If Crist ran as a Dem, many would have been upset that the Democrats abandoned Meeks and would have stayed home. Also, the GOP voters would have never voted for some one who completely switched parties where there was no whiff of independence. Also, why would Independents voted for some one who was not independent?

 Crist lost in a blowout to Marco Rubio for a reason. Crist lost because he was the poster child for politicians who would do or say anything to retain power. Newsflash, Crist lost Florida and offers nothing to help Obama win FLA in 2012. As stated at NRO“Why pick a guy who just lost his own state by a wide margin? Why associate Obama, already known for making promises with expiration dates, with a guy who changed so many positions, so quickly, when he changed parties?”

 Just a note to all who are on the get rid of Biden as VP bandwagon. Biden is not the problem on the ticket … OBAMA IS THE PROBLEM. How weak a president is Obama if those on the Left think that replacing the VP benefits Obama?

      So, this is a blog vs. blog speculation debate.

      Yawn; wake me up when its settled.
      SM: Actually Greg, pretty much most of what you say is a cure for insomnia. If you don’t like it no one makes you read or come here. Stop being a TROLL.

      This post is pathetic. do the math pal. If Kendrick Meek did not run for the Senate, Crist would have gotten the Democrat vote-this is simple enough to understand, if you had a sort of a brain.

      Who else would the Democrats vote for, Rubio? I don’t think so…
      SM: You obviously have no concept of the FLA US Senate election and are as clueless as it gets. Please tell me you are not so simple as to think that because Rubio got 49% in a 3 way vote that Crist would have got his vote + 100% of Meeks vote. You are really naive if that is the case.

      If Crist & the Dem powers that be forced Meeks out of the race and ran a turncoat RINO as a Dem, the black vote would have stayed hame, many Dems would have done the same as they would have felt betrayed. Also with Crist not running as a so-called independent, why would the independent voters who were on the fence have voted for Crist when now he was making no pretence he was a middle of the roader. Also, no Republican voter would have voted for Crist has he gone from GOP to DEM candidate because he could not win the GOP primary.

      12% of Republicans and 38% of independents voted for Crist. Even if more Dems voted for Crist, he would have never gained as much of the indy vote, never. He would have lost.

      How could any common sense person have voted for a guy who first called himself a Republican and said he would support the GOP primary winner. Then changed to being an Independent because he was getting hammered in the GOP primary and then runs a Democrat because he thought that was his best chance of winning. Yea right.

      Ask Arlen Specter if running as a Democrat is a winning prosition in the 2010 elections.

      Game, set, match.

      since they are lovers, it seems fitting.

      SM – it’s amazing that wet behind the ears liberals just rattle off as fact that Crist would have gotten ALL of Meek’s votes.

      Mark…get a clue. Any simpleton such as yourself can do the math; but it’s simply not as black and white as you want to make it out to be.

      You must one of those loser Bubba Army twits!

      Nice knowing you on Sirius loser!

      Actually Greg…it’s SM’s blog and he can speculate that the sun will be purple tomorrow if he chooses to…WTF are you to say otherwise?

    7. Greg on January 4th, 2011 11:18 pm

      All I was saying is that this is a blog disagreement, which isn’t interesting to me. I wan’t trying to say that I have any part in what is written.

      I don’t know how you missed that.
      SM: possible VP candidates is far beyond a blog disagreement, and honestly who really cares what interests you. If you care so much, get off your duff, and do this yourself rather than being a troll.

      I guess you also must have muissed, of little interest to you, the predicted landslide victory of Marco Rubio in FLA.

      However, in the end the problem isn;t the VP on the ticket, its the President.

      My mistake, I thought this was idle speculation about VP candidates from Shark Tank.
