Jim Greer joins Charlie Crist on stimulus contortions



Is it so hard for Charlie Crist to simply say he supported the stimulus package and that while it was far from perfect, he thinks it did a lot of good for the people of Florida? Now, state party chairman Jim Greer is adding to the credibility gap.

"If [Crist] had been a congressman, he has said many times, he would have voted against it," Greer said on Ron Sachs' video show.


"Gov. Charlie Crist, now a U.S. Senate candidate, said Tuesday he would have made the “pragmatic” decision to vote for the $787 billion federal stimulus bill, differentiating himself from fellow-Republican opponent Marco Rubio and the man he is trying to replace — Mel Martinez."
