Another bizarre election story – as if we need another

Florida independent Senate candidate Charlie Crist personally lobbied Democratic candidate Kendrick Meek to exit the race this week, offering him  a cross that had been a gift from his sister, Mr. Meek said Friday.

The gesture occurred Monday as Mr. Crist and Mr. Meek were surrounded by local Jewish leaders at a Hollywood, Fla., meeting of the pro-Israel lobbying group American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

“I was shocked when he did it,” Mr. Meek said in an interview late Friday. “I told him to keep the cross and that I carry my Christianity in my heart.”

Crist spokesman Danny Kanner said he would not comment on a private conversation.

This must’ve been like a diamond encrusted cross or something. Even one that had been blessed by the Pope (and I’m a Catholic) would not entice me to drop out of a race if I were Meeks.
I gotta ask myself “what was this about?” I’m perplexed. . .

A Marco Rubio win – the great fear of all progressives

[F[or many more people in line at the polls in Miami Gardens, fears of a possible Senator Rubio were guiding their decisions. Voters said they waited nearly an hour to cast their ballots because they wanted to stand up against Mr. Rubio’s support for an Arizona-style immigration law, his stated goal of changing Social Security and his association with the Tea Party, which struck many as a mask for ignoring the needs of black Floridians and the less fortunate.

“When I hear Rubio speak, it’s just frightening,” said Stephanie Moore, 49, a freelance consultant who said she would vote for Mr. Crist. “That whole Tea Party movement — it’s going to set black folks back by 40 years.”

I don’t understand this kind of thinking, at all. Setting black folks back? What is she basing that on? These folks seem to forget which party voted against civil rights of the ’60s.

Democrats have caused the slums in Detroit (and cities all over this country) with over 50 years of control. How many more years do you have to keep giving the power to the them before you figure out that they aren’t working FOR your betterment?

And on another related topic: Rubio has scared the besjesus out of the democrats. Prime example is this Meeks/Crist/Clinton/Obama stand off. Who asked who to quit the race, when did they ask, and why?

I think they are more afraid of Rubio than they are of Michele Bachmann. Rubio is the face of a president and they know it. Rubio is the greatest hope of many Republicans and not just in Florida. If he were running today, he’d have my vote. He is the inheritor of the great communicator.

And on just one more topic:

In Connecticut today, and as I’ve seen at all democrat rallies this year, there are signs with the Obama brand on them.  He says this election is not about him but his symbol is everywhere at these rallies. It’s a loser and yet, they still flash it around. What I really think is that this is for him, this is the start of the ’12 race. We are going to see him do – for the next 2 years – what he does best: campaign. He can’t govern but he sure can campaign.
