Love is in the air.
The fact that he supports it isn't a surprise.
You might remember that Crist was a big supporter of John McCain's during the election. But those loyalties only last so long. This is about money and jobs.
Show me the money
How did Obama get Crist's support?
Barack Obama (Tom Cruise): What can I do for you [to win your support for the bill]?
Charlie Crist (Cuba Gooding, Jr.): Show me the money!
Crist: Say it with me one time Barack.
Obama: Show you the money.
Crist: Not show you. Show ME the money.
Obama: Show me the money.
Obama: Show me the money!
Crist: I need to feel you Barack.
Obama: SHOW ME THE MONEY.
Crist: Barack, you need to yell.
OBAMA: SHOW ME THE MONEYYYYYYY!!!!
Crist: Congratulations. I'll back it.
Since that likely did not happen, we'll repeat what
some press secretary wrote they said in announcing the event.
“I look forward to traveling to Ft. Myers tomorrow to talk to Floridians about how we get our nation’s economy back on track," President Obama said in a statement. "Gov. Crist and I have seen firsthand the toll that this economic crisis has taken on the American people, and we agree that we can’t allow politics to get in the way of urgent relief for the millions of families and small businesses that need it."
“Florida has taken prudent steps to cut taxes for our people and balance our budget in these increasingly difficult times. Any attempts at federal stimulus must prioritize job creation and targeted tax relief for small business owners. I am eager to welcome President Obama to the Sunshine State as he continues to work hard to reignite the US economy,” Crist said in the White House statement.
Wasn't the first way better?
Anyway, the two will appear tomorrow at a rally scheduled for 12 noon in Fort Myers.
