Republicans make their own DNC speech for Charlie Crist



Republican Party of Florida Chairman Lenny Curry sent this snarky letter to DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz with a preview of what Charlie Crist might say in Charlotte.

Chairman Wasserman Schultz,

You and President Obama have invited our former Governor to address your party's national convention. In a spirit of bipartisan cooperation, I thought it would be beneficial for you to get a preview of some of the messages you could hear from Charlie Crist.  I think you'll find Crist's comments of interest.

We have a video online ...

Please don't misunderstand me. If you want to give speaking slots to people who compare President Obama to Jimmy Carter, declare their support for Sarah Palin, and do all this while identifying themselves as "Ronald Reagan Republicans," I can  understand why.  Because returning to the conservative principles of the Republican Party is the only way we can get our country back on the path to prosperity.

Less than two years ago Charlie Crist agreed by saying all these things and more.

Best regards,


Lenny Curry
