A fool and his money are soon parted: Charlie Crist is keeping GOP money

Charlie Crist opened his new headquarters today. During his speech to about 100 supporters a lone heckler asked about the money Crist received as a Republican. 
The Buzz: The standout moment came when a heckler started shouting at Crist (around 3:10 into clip), "What about the guys who gave you money when you were a Republican?!"
"I'm going to keep it!" Crist cheerfully responded, drawing roars of approval. Check out his wink right after.

Charlie Crist is just so much like Arlen Specter. He is not in politics for the people, he is doing it all for himself. Since he had zero chance of winning the Republican nomination, he decides to run as an independent (and using the Republican’s donors money to boot) because it is all about getting elected.

Frankly, it serves Charlie’s Republican donors right, that he is keeping their money. This is a man who embraced one of the largest spending packages in history at a time the nation could least afford it. That is supposed to be conservative? You get what you pay for, and in this case these donors paid for a snake in the grass.

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air offers a friendly warning to anyone who might still want to vote for Crist. 
So, we’ll see more clips like this of Crist happily keeping money donated to him under ultimately false pretenses. It’s a useful lesson to taxpayers about how Charlie sees their money. 
Sound advice!

Count our house as not having to ask for even a dime back from that shill.

Great!! This will send a powerful message to all RINOs, and specially, it will make sure conservatives don't rally behind a RINO.

I could not see you falling for a phony like Crist for a second.

It looks like you are right, recent polls show Crist pulling more votes from the Democrat than from Marco Rubio.

Crist is an ass, but as a follow-up...

When Crist announced running as an "I" (his favorite letter), it did make me smile. My hunch was that he would pull more votes from the "D"s than anything. That's a very good thing =)
