Isn't it interesting that Crist is now looking to capitalize off of the oil spill just as Obama is? Crist is hoping that the oil spill, which has turned many Floridians against off shore drilling, a proposition that his GOP contender Rubio supports, as the calling card which will lead to Rubio's defeat. Why is it that these politicians always look for advantage in terrible tragedy? Why is it that they don't actually care about the damage that has really been caused, or see the potential damage their attempts to derail our economy will have.
Crist is nothing more than a cannibalistic weasel who hopes that he will be able to regain entrance to Florida politics by throwing the Floridian population under the bus. This is the last thing that a gulf state economy needs. Oil is rich and plentiful, and is something that could really boost these state's local economies, especially in a time of economic down turns such as these.
As it is oil prices are already on the way up, and the media is touting this off as some sort of good thing for the market...Why? Why is the suffering of the Americna people always a good thing? Why do these people detest our country so much? Is it really necessary to hope for the destruction of our people, our way of life, our morality, our future?
I scarcely think that such thinking would have been tolerated even 10 years ago. Yet it seems that the blame America first crowd is looking to get some real advantage out of this disaster. I'm beginning to wonder just how much of this wasn't actually hoped for from the very beginning by these people. Just look at the statements of Rom Emanuel at the beginning of the Obama administration on no cirsis wasted...Is this really the caliber of person that we want put in positions of leadership in government at any level?
These people don't understand the impact that will be unleashed on the American people, or more likely than not, they do know but simply don't care. They don't care as this is an opportunity to propel their agendas to new heights, at the sacrifice of the well being of their respective constituents. Well enough is enough, the American people do not deserve to be treated in such a fashion. Floridians do not deserve to have their intelligence insulted in such a manner by Crist.
Political Grandstanding is something that absolutely must stop. The more these politicians gain from American suffering, the more they should be denied any leadership responsibility. This is outlandish that they could even think of getting political gain out of this. What's worse is we now have the president comparing the oil leak in the gulf to the terrible terrorist attacks of 911. It's true that it shouldn't be compared to 911 for the sheer magnitude of those attacks dwarf the damage caused by the oil spill, but Obama is hoping that he will get the sort of gushing support that former President Bush had in the weeks after 911.
All the finger pointing that the left has done towards the Republicans here are mere projections of their own actions. Crist is nothing more than an opportunistic little weasel who couldn't care less about the population he is claiming to represent. This sort of behavior deserves to be punished, and I hope that the Florida voters in November give him the middle finger as they boot his posterior out of office.
Nevertheless there are many things we need to look toward in this coming election cycle. We cannot merely nationalize every local election. If we are going to make gains as a party, then we need to focus on the issues that are effecting local areas, and then offer a small government approach that will better suit these local areas.
This means demonstrating wasteful tactics that have been used by our opponents on all levels, not just at the federal level. Democrats in all states at some level have been dishing out unpopular and controlling pieces of legislation that damage the well being of their respective populations. As the problems facing our nation mount, they must be tackled on all levels, so that we can have a better chance of causing sweeping changes to occur in the election cycle that will be upon us in November.
