TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --

Sen. George LeMieux, who once called himself a "Charlie Crist Republican," sounds more like a Marco Rubio Republican as his time in Washington comes to an end.

LeMieux will leave office in January after filling the last 16
months of Mel Martinez' term. He told the Capital Tiger Bay Club
Tuesday that federal spending problems are worse than he ever
imagined.

LeMieux also told the group that if the deficit is not reversed,
the country's debt will threaten its security and could very soon
shut down the operation of government as we know it.

Those were also central themes in Rubio's successful run to
replace LeMieux. LeMieux said those issues are a compelling reason
to consider a run against Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson in 2012.

    Why do you think the powers that be put Obama in the White House???? To undermine our once great country. Watch it! Pretty soon we will all be under the gun like Iraq. Sharia Law will soon be a reality. People wake up before it's too late.

    We got Boyd and Nelson needs to go next. Anybody can see the spending is out of control - if you think you can help fix it then run baby run.
