Charlie Crist, offshore oil drilling, Florida, and the environment


Who would have thought Governor Charlie would want to be Vice-President so badly that he'd pull this kind of craven flip-flop on coastal oil drilling? Personally, I never gave him credit for having that much ambition.

If McCain chooses him in hopes he'll deliver Florida for the Republicans in November, he might find the Governor to be damaged goods in his home state after this news gets around.

Both funny and sad at the same time.

"Beach is on fire today?"

You liberals are a "piece of work."

Maybe Crist feels the beach wont be much of an asset if no one can afford to get to it.
