"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

A Raw Deal -- Charlie Crist Tries to get Black Cong Kendrick Meeks to Drop Out of Race

Been around politics and have seen some shady candidates but Charlie Crist may take the cake. Crist goes on the air saying that Kendrick Meeks was going to drop out of the race but changed his mind when supposedly that didn't happen at all. With all the flip flops and story changes which are detailed below, the bottom line seems to be that Crist talked to someone in the White House and may have talked to Clinton about getting Meeks out of the race and endorsing him (Crist). Meeks on the other hand said he is staying in the race and not dropping out.

Who is trustworthy in all of this? Marco Rubio who is the target of both the White House through its surrogates including Clinton and Charlie NO PARTY Crist. Florida voters need to send the DC Democrats and Crist a message that their Senate seat is not for sale.

Why do blacks stay in the Democrat Party is what I would like to know. Can you imagine the uproar if a Republican had tried to do this? It will be on all news stations 24/7. Why is Crist not being called by the media for the scumbag he is or are they finally catching on you cannot believe a word he says.

If former Florida GOP Chair Greer who is under indictment is smart, he will turn on Charlie and tell the truth how Crist used him and aides for his charges so he didn't have to get a card. They have the details of Mrs. Crist trip to Europe that Florida GOP paid the airfare at Charlie's request. How much more money do FL GOP put out to make sure that Crist was pampered.

This also shows that the White House and Clinton were involved in trying to get Sestack out of the race for Arlen Spector in PA. How many other races has that happened?  We expect Harry Reid was also involved in both instances as well. 
When we first said that Charlie Crist will do or say anything to get elected, we were not kidding. He has proven us to be right. What a low life to try and pull this to win a Senate seat and caucus with the Democrats after taking contributions from Republicans which he refused to give back. Crist needs run out of politics for good!

Email from Rubio Campaign:

It's a Raw Deal
We all know Charlie Crist will say or do anything to get elected. But this time he’s sunk to a new low.

In case you haven’t seen the late breaking news, Charlie Crist tried to cut a last second, backroom deal with former President Bill Clinton, in an utterly shameless attempt to pander for Democrat votes.

News reports of exactly what Crist claims happened are as inconsistent and contradictory as Crist himself. What we do know is that Charlie Crist was trying to engineer a secret deal with President Clinton, admits he was talking to the White House about it (even though he won’t say who), and CNN is reporting that as part of the deal, Crist agreed to caucus with the Democrat leadership in the Senate.

It’s all just shameless.

Secret deals, special favors, and political kickbacks. That’s the problem with Washington today, not the answer. Government shouldn’t be picking winners and losers. And typical politicians shouldn’t be cutting backroom deals to hold power at all costs.
Most of us suspected at the last debate when Crist took Meeks aside that he was discussing Meeks dropping out of the race and endorsing him.  Looks like that was the case.  What made Crist so arrogant that he thought that Meeks should drop out and support him -- why didn't he drop out and support Meeks?  Never mind, Charlie doesn't do anything for anyone except himself.  Meek has been on the air this morning blasting Crist.  If there are any Republicans still supporting Charlie, they had better think twice at the person they are thinking of voting for in the Senate race.  Then you have Meeks who supposedly thought about dropping out.

Kendrick Meek reaffirms he's in Senate race to stay, blasts Charlie Crist

Kendrick Meek blames dropout rumors on Gov. Crist

Kendrick Meek wants to be clear: He's staying in the U.S. Senate race, and former President Bill Clinton didn't ask him to leave the race.

Making the rounds on several national television network news shows on Friday morning, Democrat Kendrick Meek lashed out at independent Charlie Crist for fueling what he called false rumors that former President Bill Clinton had asked him to drop out of the Senate race.

``[Clinton] didn't ask me to drop out of the race,'' Meek told Fox & Friends. He said that longtime political mentor had asked him last week about ``rumors'' that he might possibly withdraw from the race.

Meek said he told Clinton that he was not going to bow out of the race. ```That's your decision,''' Meek recalled Clinton telling him during a conversation backstage at a rally in Florida.

He then slammed Crist for playing a political trick to damage his bid for the Senate.

``I don't operate like this, and the bottom line is, is that Charlie Crist does,'' Meek said. ``It's mind boggling.''

Meek said that Crist himself had called him during the campaign to urge him to leave the race.

``I told him I'm not getting out of the race,'' he said. ``I don't sellout on the people of Florida.''

Now we have Bill Clinton involved in all of this.  Some things never change about Clinton -- he was untrustworthy as President and his word was worth nothing -- looks like that has not changed either.  Then throw in the Obama White House and Crist and you have a whole group of unethical politicians.  The Sestack story with Specter now makes sense.  Pennsylvania voters better think twice about voting for Sestack as well. 

Now we know for sure that Charlie Crist's votes and who he would caucus with were for sale.  He needs to lose the No Party label and become a Democrat to join the unethical Clinton and Obama.
Kendrick Meek Talked With Bill Clinton About Quitting Senate Race
October 28, 2010

Rep. Kendrick Meek confirmed Friday that he and Bill Clinton discussed speculation that the Democrat might drop out of the three-way contest for Senate in Florida. But Meek denied reports from Politico and others that the former president pressured him to quit in order to help Republican-turned-independent Gov. Charlie Crist beat GOP nominee Marco Rubio.

"We had a conversation in Orlando. The president and I talked about it," Meek said on MSNBC's 'Morning Joe" Friday. "I told him I'm not going to do it and that's just the bottom line."

Crist revealed in televised interviews that he was aware of the conversation between Meek and Clinton -- and that he also discussed possible withdrawal with Meek and spoke with the White House about it.

Clinton told CNN he and Meek spoke twice about rumors that he might drop out, but the former president said he didn't discuss it with the White House. He also refused to say what advice he gave Meek, a longtime friend for whom he campaigned in Florida.


The White House knew about the plan but did not initiate the talks.

"Not being seen as a quitter was more important than stopping someone who was so opposed to what you and your party had stood for," said one Democrat about Meek's decision to stay in.

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele issued a written statement Thursday that said in part: "President Clinton's actions to have Kendrick Meek withdraw from the campaign sends a chilling signal to all voters, but especially African Americans. One can only imagine the response if Republican leadership tried to force out of the race – in the 11th hour – a qualified black candidate like Kendrick Meek."

The Rubio camp also reacted to the Politico report in a statement Thursday.

"Secret deals to trade away principles for power is already the problem in Washington, it's not the solution," Senior Strategist Todd Harris wrote. "This is simply politics as usual which is exactly what voters across the country are emphatically rejecting this election."
