RPOF: Crist is a phony who once declared, 'I'm about as conservative as you can get'



Republican Party of Florida on the Crist news:

Charlie Crist's first official act as a Democrat was to tell a lie about why he is now pretending to be one.  The truth is that this self-professed, Ronald-Reagan Republican only abandoned his pro-life, pro-gun, conservative principles in 2010 after he realized that Republicans didn't want to send him to Washington D.C. as a senator, especially after he proved he couldn't do the job as governor.

It's obvious that Florida Democrats are desperate when Charlie Crist is the one who gets invited to the White House just two years after he disowned Barack Obama in 2010, publicly ripped him at every turn, accusing President Obama of having 'the same tired answer for every problem, trashing ObamaCare and promising to repeal it, endorsing John McCain, and blasted President Obama for wasting money on the stimulus.

But don't take our word for it.  Listen to Charlie Crist say it himself:

Barack Obama "has the same tired answer for every problem - to spend more of your money." 

Sarah Palin is more ready to be president that Barack Obama

"I'm about as conservative as you can get."

"I want you to know that Charlie Crist is pro-life."
