Charlie Crist has sunk the GOP's chance at the presidency, by endorsing Obama for a second term. Or more likely, not. If you've just eaten, you may want to skip this sop:
As America prepares to pick our president for the next four years — and as Florida prepares once again to play a decisive role — I'm confident that President Barack Obama is the right leader for our state and the nation. I applaud and share his vision of a future built by a strong and confident middle class in an economy that gives us the opportunity to reap prosperity through hard work and personal responsibility. It is a vision of the future proven right by our history.We often remind ourselves to learn the lessons of the past, lest we risk repeating its mistakes. Yet nearly as often, our short-term memory fails us. Many have already forgotten how deep and daunting our shared crisis was in the winter of 2009, as President Obama was inaugurated. It was no ordinary challenge, and the president served as the nation's calm through a historically turbulent storm.The president's response was swift, smart and farsighted. He kept his compass pointed due north and relentlessly focused on saving jobs, creating more and helping the many who felt trapped beneath the house of cards that had collapsed upon them.
It goes on, but I think you get the picture. Stirring words - if you happened to be in a coma for the past four years and (1) didn't see the results of the president's economy heading south (not north like Crist's compass anaiolgy) and (2) you still remember and give a flying burrito about one Charlie Crist.
