Florida’s governor is now dining on a dish that is proverbially best served cold:
On a conference call today with bloggers, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani discussed his endorsement of Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate, saying his endorsement goes beyond “whether Charlie Crist broke his word with me on several occasions - he did - that’s the reality, that’s the truth, he did break his word.”
In case you’ve forgotten, Giuliani staked his 2008 presidential bid on the hope of winning the Florida primary, believing he could count on Crist’s endorsement:
Crist instead lent his last-minute support to Arizona Republican John McCain, who ultimately won that state’s pivotal presidential primary and effectively ended Giuliani’s hopes of becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee.
Tim Mak of Frum Forum explains just what a devastating payback this is:
Rudy’s endorsement is powerful because it strikes to the core of Crist’s already-dwindling support. It tells moderate Republicans that they should give Marco Rubio a second look. This endorsement could be the point in this campaign where Rubio’s ascendancy to the Republican nomination becomes inevitable.
According to Stu Rothenberg, Crist still doesn’t understand that he’s through. I’m sure the Spectator’s man in Florida, Larry Thornberry, will soon have much more to say about this latest disaster for Charlie Crist.

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?
