Florida voters: Are you getting this “ploy” yet?
Now Independent Charlie Crist, the Obama hugger after having his calls to the White House refused recently, (all of a sudden) now the Florida Democratic Party is begging the White House to reconsider backing Crist.
Knowing their candidate Kendrick Meek is lagging behind in the polls, the Democrats are starting to back Crist knowing he will likely Caucus with the Democrats in the Senate.
From the Washington Examiner:
May 10, 2010
A group of Florida Democrats have been urging the White House to abandon their own Senate candidate, Rep. Kendrick Meek, in all but name. And they appear to have succeeded.
The Wall Street Journal reports that President Obama is seriously considering offering only half-hearted support to his party’s nominee, the only serious black candidate for Senate in the United States this year, so as to help Republican-turned-Independent candidate Gov. Charlie Crist win the seat.
The White House told the Democrats that the president is supporting his party’s likely nominee, U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek. But the Democrats came away from the conversations thinking that the White House might be open to discussing the level of passion that it would put behind Mr. Meek’s candidacy, according to people familiar with the conversations.
Mr. Crist’s path to victory would become easier if the president refrained from singling him out for criticism or from making Mr. Meek’s election a top priority during the busy campaign season. The White House officials speaking with the Democrats included Mr. Obama’s political director, Patrick Gaspard.
Crist also appears to be speaking with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. This should be taken as a sign of where he will caucus if he makes it to the U.S. Senate.

Whatever happened to backing your own party member?
The Democrats will stoop to any level to try to retain its power in Congress.
If Crist had won the Senate seat as a Republican, he would have been a RINO anyway.
Is this the mantra of the Democrats in the mid-term elections?
IF your Democratic candidate is losing in the polls; hug a RINO?
The telling sign was when I heard Crist vetoed the bill in the Florida State Legislature to basically rid Florida of tenured teachers. Crist was already swayed by the Unions
Florida; when you go to the polls to select your candidate……choose wisely.
