ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) --

Governor Crist says he has no regrets.

Not about running for Senate instead of re-election.

Not about leaving the Republican Party.

Not about the decisions he made during his four years in office.

Crist talked Monday, November 29 about his time in office and his recent
election loss. He said he's not thinking about a political future,
but rather weighing several offers to work for private businesses.

He's also talking with Governor-elect Rick Scott weekly during
his transition out of office and expressed the hope that Scott and
the Republican dominated Legislature remember that there are more
Democrats in Florida than Republicans or independents.

    ThankyouCrist is right. We need more politicians like Charlie Crist. He told the GOP to stick it and vetoed the teacher and ultrasound bills. The religious nutjobs won because 2 million young people stayed home and didn't bother to vote. Let these right-wing wackos start another unnecessary war and draft all their punk butts and you'll see how many of them find their way to the polls. Rubio and Rick Scott are both crooks. Crist is a decent, honest man. The rational voters will miss him. Too bad we're outnumbered by the morons. -David Wussler

    Thank you Crist for serving as our Governor. You did what was right for the people regardless of party lines. I will miss you and I hope that you will consider a run in the future.

    I was so sorry that Crist did not choose to remain governor. I think he was a pretty good governor for all people in Florida. But I suppose he did what he needed to do. Sorry to see you go Mr. Crist. However, with this Scott guy, the state of Florida has a known crook for governor and suppose the ones that voted for him are satisfied. All I say about Scott is, if you don't believe in God, you best bet is to get to know Him now.

    3X3........ Old News! Get a life! Crist did what he had to do & Scott did what he had to do. The people has spoken & Crist, believe it or not, there are conservative democrats (maybe, I've not seen one lately, but according to your statement there must be).

    Florida voters gave gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott the nod of approval in the November 2, 2010 elections. However, Scott who beat Alex Sink in the Florida Governor’s race, admitted to 14 counts of Medicare fraud and paid the federal government more than $600 million dollars in fines for his fraudulent billing practices. “In settlements reached in 2000 and 2002, Columbia/HCA rose to public attention when it pleaded guilty to 14 felonies and agreed to a $600 million fine in what the Justice department then called the largest fraud case settled in the history of the Justice department. A series of New York Times articles, beginning in 1996, began scrutinizing Columbia/HCA's business and Medicare billing practices. These culminated in the company being raided in July 1997 by Federal agents searching for documents. Among the crimes uncovered were doctors being offered financial incentives to bring in patients, falsifying diagnostic codes to increase reimbursements from Medica
