Oh, what a tangled web Charlie weaves.
(Page 2 of 2)
At a Reagan Day dinner in Tampa in October, where from the podium Crist tried to convince the faithful there gathered that he was a lot like the beloved Gipper, Greer told me he “couldn’t find where he (Crist) has ever said he supports cap and trade.” A truly stunning remark. I wanted to take his knife and fork away from him before he hurt himself.
But back to Charlie. After a couple of weeks of re-writing his own history, claiming he never supported a disastrous policy when he did, and trying to deny he supported a policy that he had issued an executive order requiring, Crist then committed the following howler on Friday (be sure to be sitting down for this one).
While Crist was touring a medical facility at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, a reporter asked him when he might debate Marco Rubio. Governor Sunshine’s answer: “I don’t know that it would be worthwhile because I can’t have any confidence in what he might say. One thing comes out of his mouth and another thing is his record. It’s hard to have any confidence in what he says anymore.”
Wow! We have a new NCAA record for chutzpah. If there were an Olympic event called the free-style knee-slapper, this one would retire the gold. For Charlie Crist to say this requires more brass than you’d find at a spittoon factory. I hope no one in the ward Charlie was touring had a bladder infection. They would have laughed themselves wet.
If, as may well happen, Florida Republicans deconstruct Charlie before the August primary, thereby putting an end to his achievement-free political career, he clearly has a promising follow-on career in standup comedy. At least in this kind of work he could be funny on purpose.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
