"I’m not gonna do it and I’m not going to be asked and it’s not going to happen."

- Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush • Saying that it’s unlikely that he’ll be the vice presidential pick in somewhat firmer terms than Mike Huckabee. Bush, who has emerged as a voice who isn’t afraid to disagree with his own party at times, admits that if we were to do it, “this was probably my time,” but that “I’m not sure I would have been successful as a candidate either.” The odds, either way, are looking good for a VP candidate out of Florida — CPAC voters in Chicago over the weekend heavily favored current Sen. Marco Rubio as their desired running mate for Mitt Romney. (via shortformblog)

Lawyer claims former FL Gov. Crist paid off gay lovers
Damon Chase, former lawyer to ex-Florida GOP chairman Jim Greer, has lobbed a number of accusations at former governor Charlie Crist, who served from 2003 to 2007. He claims Crist is a closeted homosexual (this isn’t the first time he’s faced this suggestion) who paid off two men to leave the state, so to keep his orientation secret. He also claims Crist once tried to kiss Greer in a Beverly Hills hotel, and was prone to alcohol, in one instance attempting to run people over while drunkenly driving a golf cart. Crist has dismissed the talk as “a bunch of delusional lies” — the info was given to a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation into possible corruption by Jim Greer during his time running the Florida GOP. (Photo by Fifth World Art) source

  • After that little hissy fit attacking Newt, I’m not sure that Romney came out ahead but Gingrich definitely came out the loser.
  • Newt really does look like a Sith Lord. I just can’t get past it. 
  • Oh so now Santorum wants to help people…I don’t really have anything to say about that. Homeowners do need help. 
  • The whole rest of the stage is just staring at Ron Paul while he explains the financial meltdown. I want a better explanation of how he wants to liquidate the debt and take the burden off of the tax payers
  • Romney: “You have to have regulation”. Well heavens above, what have we here? “We need regulation that is up to date.” 
  • OH CUBA QUESTIONS LET’S GO
  • Romney wants to move Cuba to freedom and fight for democracy….but not open relations with them. huh.
  • Gingrich thinks we should overthrow the regime…and blames Obama for not forcing an “Arab spring” in Cuba. oh okay.
  • wait wait Ron Paul DOESN’T like the isolationism of not talking to people? This is news to me. He has a point though. “We talked to the Soviets, we talk to the Chinese…” “It’s not 1962 anymore and we don’t have to use force and intimidation in overthrow of governments” Well damn Ron Paul, let’s go. You talk to those Cubans.
  • Santorum is seriously underestimating how many Castros are lined up in Cuba and overestimating how interested the Taliban is in Cuba. 
  • Well for once Gingrich hits it, the American people have no interest in going to war. Largely true.
  • I wish Romney would talk about how he would handle Afghanistan, not how he things Obama has handled it poorly
  • YEAH YOU GO RON PAUL we do NOT want a hot war in Iran. “I think it would be the most foolish thing in the world to go to war with Iran” 
  • why are we even talking about going to war with Iran this is so inane

So I guess I’m watching this. 

whatever.

  • Santorum keeps talking about constructive and destructive capitalism, not sure he knows how it works.
  • Hahahahah you go BriWi “So you never peddled your influence?” to Newt. Let me tell you Newt. Despite what were apparently your best efforts, you never represented me particularly well and you’re pretty embarrassing to the state of Georgia anyways.
  • Gingrich is FINALLY getting jumped all over for basically being a corrupt, pandering jerk who used legislation to get his way and help himself out. It’s hypocritical of Romney to be the one calling him out but this needed to happen.

Wait, Herman Cain won a straw poll in Florida? How the hell did that happen?

Did he give voters a free pizza with their vote? In all seriousness, though, looks like we need to eat our words … with Crazy Bread and a swig of some of that 999 Plan energy drink. Rick Perry came in second by a wide margin, which is a very bad showing for him considering his early hype.

I’m really hoping this is just because of FL’s proximity to GA or something
