Tallahassee, FL (AP) - Gov. Charlie Crist is on the air with a
new ad in Florida's major television markets challenging the
credibility of his two opponents in the U.S. Senate race.
In the 30-second ad, "What Do we Really Know about Marco Rubio
and Kendrick Meek," the announcer says Meek, a Democrat, steered
government contracts to an indicted developer who gave his mother a
Cadillac. It says Rubio, a Republican, is being investigated by the
Internal Revenue Service.
Crist, who is running as an independent in the Senate contest,
appears briefly at the end of the ad to say he approved its
The Meek and Rubio campaign camps fired back Friday, calling the
ad cynical, desperate and highly personal since it also targeted
family members.

    THIS man has no CREDIBILITY in pointing fingers at anyone. As a one-time famous advertising spot use to say...."Sorry, Charlie." At least it is reported Mark Rubio PAID his money back whereas you accepted money from GOP, jumped ship & took THEIR money with you, blatantly refusing to give it back. That defines you as a "thief in the night." So, considering what you did, better focus on cleaning your own image!

    Crist is Liberace without the piano

    That is a hoot of a story, and I mean story as in a lie.

    Integrity and credibility are not a part of your character Charlie Crist, but you are ingratiating, arrogant and self-centered.

    So Chucky, we can trust you when you fail to veto the $48 million 1st District Court of Appeal Courthouse? This is even after Supreme Court Justice R. Fred Lewis says he tried without success to get you to veto it. The conversation you say you can't remember. Oh, OK you have my vote.....NOT !!!! Not that I like either of the other two, I've just got to find the lesser of three evils.

    Charlie Crist challenging anothers "CREDIBILITY" is a joke. Come November he's gone.

    I can't vote for or against the man, but he is the guy who was running on the Republican ticket who said he would not run as an Independent and did after he was defeated in the primary. He's also the guy who sounded like John Kerry on the healthcare bill, first saying he would have voted for it then later recanting. Yep, Crist is the picture of trustworthiness himself.

    Charlie would do and say anything to get elected. It is all about Charlie not about the people as he often says. Charlie you are toast.

    Remember that a Traitor of the Republican Party is saying all this. Switching races while in Office. Shameful so Shameful. He’d do anything right now.
