Drilling Pelosi in Miami; Dems bash Crist



The RPOF welcomes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to her Miami book-signing today: "Despite her rhetoric, Pelosi has vacated her duties to the American people in favor of signing autographs," said state GOP communications director Erin VanSickle. "The fact that Speaker Pelosi would rather attend a book signing than work to develop a plan to meet America’s energy needs shows a complete lack of the judgment necessary to lead the United States Congress."

UPDATE: And the FlaDems respond in a letter to VanSickle: "I am kind of surprised that the RPOF would try to make an issue out of anyone taking vacations or vacating duties while Florida's families are suffering, when Charlie Crist has taken a record 44 days off (as of 2 weeks ago - Charlie takes so many days off I have trouble keeping count.) That count (courtesy of the Orlando Sentinel) does not include the 49 days of throwing 1st pitches, ect.

On the Democrats' anti-Crist theme, here's audio of Karen Thurman saying not nice things about the would-be vice president from Florida.
