Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Crist: You know how I flip-flopped on support of ObamaCare? I was just getting warmed up on flip-flops!

I know the tourists here in FL don flip-flops in the summer heat, but our citrus-skinned Oompa Loompa governor is showing the tourists how we do things in the Sunshine State!  Next topic for Crist’s flip-flop?  A constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.  Details:

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist appeared to backtrack from statements he made regarding same-sex marriage during a CNN interview Sunday, saying in a statement that he does not support a Constitutional ban on the practice.

The comments appear at odds with what the Florida Senate candidate told CNN’s Ed Henry on State of the Union, during which he expressed continued support for a ban on same-sex marriage.

“I feel the same way, yes, because I feel that marriage is a sacred institution, if you will. But I do believe in tolerance. I’m a live and let live kind of guy, and while I feel that way about marriage, I think if partners want to have the opportunity to live together, I don’t have a problem with that,” said Crist when asked about his stance against same-sex marriage when he ran for governor four years ago.

“When it comes to marriage, I think it is a sacred institution. I believe it is between a man and woman, but partners living together, I don’t have a problem with,” added Crist, the former Republican-turned-Independent who is leading the three-way Senate race in most recent polls (um, no…he’s not. – CL)  and is counting on significant support from Democratic and independent voters to eek out a victory.

In a statement released later Sunday, Crist said he in fact is against a Constitutional ban on same sex marriage and was instead only offering his support for a state ban on the practice.

I was not discussing an amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning same-sex marriage, which I do not support, but rather reaffirming my position regarding Florida’s constitutional ban that I articulated while running for governor,” he said in the statement.

Read the transcript.  Ed Henry asks him twice about supporting a constitutional ban on gay marriage.  Charlie’s lying through his teeth (again), and trying to have it both ways (again).  Whether you support a constitutional ban on gay marriage or not, fine…but I suspect each of you probably feel strong enough about it one way or the other that you’re not going to shift directions multiple times!

But wait…there’s more!  From NRO:

Miami Herald: “Gov. Charlie Crist is not joining his rivals for the U.S. Senate, Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Kendrick Meek, this Sunday on MSNBC’s ‘Meet the Press.’”

Cluck-cluck.

“The governor has long planned Labor Day events, when he’ll be out talking to working families,’’ said Crist spokesman Danny Kanner.

Of course. Those working families require the entire day; clearly, they wouldn’t understand if Crist took one half hour out of his morning to appear, via satellite if necessary, with the other candidates.

Oh, by the way, there’s nothing currently listed for Sunday on the Crist campaign web site events page.

Ed remembers that Chuck blasted Rubio early in the GOP primary for not debating him at the time.  Apparently, now it’s fine to duck debates.  Don’t like Charlie’s positions?  Simply wait a few minutes, and you’re bound to find him espousing a position you like…though no guarantees as to how long that position of his will last, m’kay?

Seriously, this dude’s a friggin’ joke.

Exit question: With Gallup showing a 10% GOP edge in the generic ballot question, an all-time high in Gallup’s history, you think maybe Crist is second-guessing picking this year of all years to bolt the party he’s crapped on for so many years?
