Kendrick Meek, have criticized the governor in previous debates,

    Does Crist really think the people of Florida are stupid enough to believe he changed parties because the republicans have "gone too far to the right?" Almost as believable as Alex Sink saying she read the text "because I'm a Mom and my daughter's out of the country."

    The funniest part was when Gregory pointed out that the GOP stances on gay marriage and Roe v. Wade, two issues Crist mentioned as proof that the GOP had gone way too far right, had been the same for years - including the entire time Crist was running and getting elected as a Republican. Classic.
