The New York Post is reporting something we Floridians — and now the nation — know about our governor Charlie Crist. He’s a political skank who’s in bed with Obama. Literally or figuratively? I’ll leave that for you to ponder…
Guess who’s heading up a PR campaign to help him get elected? None other than Anita Dunn, the lizard tongued Mao-ist who worked as White House communications director for Obama.
WASHINGTON — Top Democratic strategists are abandoning their party’s frontrunner in the Florida Senate race in favor of Independent Charlie Crist, who bolted the Republican party over the state party’s rightward lurch toward the Tea Party.
SKDKnickerbocker, a leading Democratic political strategy and communications firm, has agreed to work on Crist’s up-hill campaign as an independent for the U.S. Senate.
The decision will be widely viewed as a slap at Democratic frontrunner Rep. Kendrick Meek, who is trailing badly in the polls and many Democrats believe is hopeless for winning in November.
Making it all the more ominous for Meek is that SKDKnickerbocker is helmed by Anita Dunn, who most recently served as senior advisor to President Obama and is one of the administration’s most valued political operators outside the White House.
One Democrat familiar with the situation tamped down the notion that Democrats and the White House are walking away from Meek pointing out that N.Y. strategist Josh Isay, and not Dunn, will be working on the campaign.
But said another Democrat: “They never would have signed on to the Crist campaign unless it was okay at the highest levels.”
There may be no love lost between Obama and Meek, who was among the few black politicians who supported and stuck with Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008. Also, former President Bill Clinton remains a close Meek ally and supporter.
Charlie Crist – definitely not Chris Chistie. In fact, Charlie’s so far removed from New Jersey’s governor in terms of class, leadership and values, he can’t even see the Garden State from here. Even if he stands on his tippy-toes.
