former GOP governor endorses BO

“An element of their party has pitched so far to the extreme right on issues important to women, immigrants, seniors and students that they’ve proven incapable of governing for the people,” Mr. Crist wrote in a Sunday op-ed in the Tampa Bay Times. “The truth is that the party has failed to demonstrate the kind of leadership or seriousness voters deserve.”

You know times are rough when even Republicans don't want to be associated with this party. True, the Tea Partiers are pushing Republicans back to a simpler time, but by "simpler", they mean back to a time that was uneducated and grossly uninformed. Back to when women's rights or multiculturalism wasn't important or even existent. I have no idea how they feel they can remain relevant or be the voice of a people to the country, especially one that boasts one of the most diverse populations in the world and a country that lead the charge in the women's rights movement. Thankfully, the GOP has signed their own death warrant and has made themselves a very real non-threat.

Kudos to Charlie Crist and a small victory in defection!
