According to Politico.com, former president Bill Clinton brokered a deal requesting that Rep. Meeks drop out of the Florida Senate race in order to allow progressive Charlie Crist (R, I, P) an open pathway to winning that senate seat against Marco Rubio. What won’t the progressives do to get one of their own inside the beltway? Since when does a former president who happens to be a democrat try to get another democrat to quit a race in order for a republican turned independent to win a seat? Open your eyes America; now you will understand why a DeMint/Paul leadership team is so important. If we are going to have republican control in the House and Senate, can we at least have somebody that upholds the Constitution?
Bill Clinton sought to persuade Rep. Kendrick Meek to drop out of the race for Senate during a trip to Florida last week — and nearly succeeded.
Meek agreed — twice — to drop out and endorse Gov. Charlie Crist’s independent bid in a last-ditch effort to stop Marco Rubio, the Republican nominee who stands on the cusp of national stardom.
What makes this all very interesting is a comment I just heard from Shep Smith speaking with Carl Cameron on FoxNews about Obama taking a page out of Bill Clinton’s playbook after Newt Gingrich and the republicans regained control of the house in 1994. The close working relationship that Clinton and Gingrich built under the banner of bipartisanship belays the actual common purpose of pushing global governance that these two progressives both envisioned.
Sean Hannity interviewed Marco Rubio today about Charlie Crist’s shift to indie, his lack of integrity in regards to the lies he told two weeks ago on FoxNews Sunday when Chris Wallace asked him point blank if he would run as an indie or as a republican.
The two Republicans battling in the nation’s mostly closely watched Senate primary contest will debate this Sunday in the “Fox News Sunday” studio in Washington, D.C.
The Florida Senate Showdown is a “Fox News Sunday” exclusive.
Gov. Charlie Crist had a commanding 37-point lead in the polls last spring and was considered by many to be a future leader in the Republican Party. But in a remarkable turnaround, his challenger Marco Rubio, former Florida Speaker of the House and a Tea Party favorite, has stormed to the lead.
The two challengers will sit down face to face for their first debate on “Fox News Sunday.”

The steady drumbeat for Marco Rubio keeps going on and on. Today he is picking up the endorsement of Congressman Mike Pence.
Congressman Pence said, “I am proud to endorse Marco Rubio for the United States Senate. Marco Rubio’s faith in free markets, limited government and traditional moral values make him the right choice for Republicans in this race. At a time when the American people long for leaders of principle, Marco Rubio will be a courageous check and balance on the current Washington establishment.
“With Washington spending money we don’t have and empowering the government at the expense of individual freedom, we need more leaders like Marco Rubio who are willing to take a stand for the common sense and common values of the American people.”
Americans are tired of politicians that say one thing, do another, and do not live by a set of principles. We know the Borg Progressives have completely absorbed their democratic host, but the GOP isn’t on life support yet. One would think they would be listening, paying attention, and re-installing their spines considering the American public is more pissed at them then they are at the dems.
Once again, not so. The GOP are being pantywaists in the face of overwhelming evidence that the American public wants them to get a grip! Conservative republican candidate Rubio has just passed Crist in the polls, yet the GOP will continue to support Crist….wait for it….but not fund him. Where is the leadership in that? Their own website states, “Devoted To Electing A Republican Majority Senate”. Clueless *(^*&%&*()**^&s.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee will continue to endorse Florida Gov. Charlie Crist in the state’s Senate primary race but will not provide financial support, Sen. John Cornyn, the group’s chairman, said Tuesday.
“We’re going to stick with our endorsement,” Mr. Cornyn, Texas Republican, said in an interview with The Washington Times’ “America’s Morning News” radio show. But “we’re not going to be spending any money in the primary.”
Message to the GOP; you can’t have it both ways because now you appear even stupidier and weaker to the Wide Awake American Public.
