Rick Scott is a far etter choice as a re-elected governor than bringing Charlie Crist, shown in rthe inset, who switches parties at every turn.
 

DEBARY, Fla. -- Charlie Crist can put out slick ads, but I was around when he used then-state GOP Chair Jim Greer to try to manipulate the Republican support for the U.S. Senate and stack the deck against Marco Rubio.

Crist had Greer try to freeze Rubio out of the Repuiblican National Committee funding, but fortunately that did not work.

I saw right through it when Crist put his support behind John McCain in hopes of being the vice presidential pick in 2008, instead of letting the primary process play out.

Charlie Crist was so desperate to get to Washington that he was a conservative Republican, then Independent and now Democrat. This was not switching parties to benefit the people, but switching parties to get him into the office he wanted. And as such, Charlie Crist epitomizes the "It's all about me."

Under Rick Scott, Florida is the second best state to do business behind Texas. Scott has decreased the red tape it takes for a business to start. A new business brings jobs. Not just the jobs of the specific company, but then also increases in jobs of the services the people employed utilize.

Scott cut taxes 40 times while Charlie Crist raised taxes by $2.2 billion. Less money paid to the government means more money in your pocket. Scott created over 650,000 jobs in Florida while hundred of thousands of jobs were lost under Charlie Crist.

During a recent debate when Crist was asked if he had any responsibility for the job losses, he denied it. As the then-leader of the state he had responsibility for what happened to those jobs.

Charlie Crist was not a good governor and after one term he wanted an upgrade to Washington. When that did not work out, he wanted his old job back. Boo Hoo!

Rick Scott wants a second term to keep fighting for Floridians and is not trying to upgrade to Washington. To Rick Scott, it is about the good of Florida and not about himself. That is why I am voting for Rick Scott.
