Analysis: With election near, Gov. Crist changes


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- A sure sign that it's election season again: Gov. Charlie Crist is changing again.

The populist Republican is trying to convince people he's a conservative now that his opponent in the primary for Senate, former House Speaker Marco Rubio, has cut considerably into Crist's lead in the polls with a conservative message.

In the most extreme example of Crist reinventing himself, the governor denied endorsing the $787 billion federal stimulus and put out a radio ad in October criticizing President Barack Obama for trying to spend his way to prosperity. Crist clearly did endorse the package in February, saying it would help re-ignite the economy.

Choosing or changing positions based on what's politically popular is nothing new for Crist. Whether it's abortion laws, oil drilling or even the politicians he associates with, Crist can be a political chameleon.

None of these candidates really want to talk about unemployment in Florida, do they?
The worst thing about Crist isn't that he accepted stimulus money - it's that he intentionally spent it badly. So he personally created a problem which he will now blame Obama for... so typical.
