Senator LeMieux Endorses Rubio and Discusses Victory Strategies (VIDEO)

Regular readers of the Tank know that we have pulled no punches towards soon-to-be Democrat Governor Charlie Crist, which is why we’re posting Senator George LeMieux’s endorsement of Marco Rubio.  It is well known that LeMieux was Crist’s former confidant, advisor, and BFF for years, and that he aggressively campaigned for the ‘tanned man’ as soon as Crist declared his candidacy for Senate.  (VIDEO)


It’s funny how fast things have changed for Crist , who is now the most unprincipled politician in politics today. Senator LeMieux also addresses the Victory Strategies corporation that has landed former Florida State GOP Boss/Henchman Jim ‘Bozo’ Greer in the slammer on numerous corruption charges. There are many out there who believe that Governor Crist, Senator LeMieux and Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum were intricately involved in Greer’s biz, and turned a blind eye to the corruption that was going on.  I like to give these men the benefit of the doubt when they say that they knew nothing of the sort.  We will know shortly what comes out from this, as  Greer’s courtcase begins next month and both Crist and McCollum may/will be called to testify.

    And just today, Scott Brown said he supports the small business killing finance bill which has no fix for the real problem Fannie and Freddie.

    Great news that our Florida GOP U. S. Senator is endorsing Marco Rubio.

    All of the elitist Big Government Charlie- Horse Crist supporters in the Broward Republican Executive Committee should vigorously and visiblly support Marco Rubio. And that includes the whinny self-worshipping Broward Log Cabin Republicans and some of the tentative Sunshine Republicans.

    Make your support for Marco Rubio visible with bumper stickers, yard signs, blogs, guest editorials in daily and weekly papers. If you once supported Big Government Charlie Crist, don’t be a third-class Republican by not showing visible grassroots support for Marco Rubio.

    Support Marco Rubio, stand up and make sure you are heard and seen.

    NO EXCUSES !!!

    Charlie’s Brain at work, again. Let’s just hope that George wants to take on Bill Nelson in 2012…..
    Too good of a Senator for Florida to waste

    Poetic justice! How sweet!

    I thought Senator Pepe’ LePew brought us the 18th Century Railroad bill with Choo Choo Charlie with big Payola for CSX and all the legislatures that supported wasting Florida Tax Dollars. That act increased Florida State Government by two additional Departments, the retirement and employees of the Railroads and the Liability for their incompetence in the future… A gift for taxpayers that will continue to give forever. His endorsement of a Lobbyist Stimulus Senator means less than nothing in my eyes…

    So, how will we reduce taxes and waste, where does he stand on term limits, nullifying any retirement for Congressmen and Senators, eliminating entire departments like Education, Homeland Security. Where does he stand on the Patriot Act, Real ID Act, Illegal immigration, Belegerence Act, TARP, Stimulus Acts? How will he protect the State and the unalinable rights of the citizens and stand up for the Constitution?

    Way to go Rubio! I have a Marco bumper sticker on my car and I have supported him financially for a long time. We need Marco in the Senate. He will be a reliable conservative vote. He is a man of integrity, which is what we need in Washington.

    What do you mean “soon to be democratic governor.”…HE IS A PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRAT WHO IS READING HIS SCRIPT LIKE A GOOD RINO, REPUBLICAN PARTY INFILTRATOR SHOULD…..AND IF YOU ALLOW HIM TO WIN ….GET READY TO PAY 20 BUCK FOR GAS, AND PAY WITH YOUR LIFE FOR BREAD FOR YOUR FAMILY!

    I was pleased to read your article today about United States Senator and Governor Christ appointee George LeMieux endorsing former Florida House Speaker Maco Rubio to succeed him in the United States Senate. We obviously need loyal and principled candidates to represent us in the halls of Congress. It seems right now the only loyalty Charlie Christ has is to Democratic special interests and their large spenders.

    My vote goes to Marco and I hope that Sen. George will take on Bill Nelson in 2012. I have written Nelson time and again and he never answers my questions and dances around the subject and says NOTHING. Will just take my thoughts into consideration when he votes…and always votes along with the rest of the Gang in Washington…GO MARCO…we need you!

    Who is Lemieux fooling? He was the closest man to Charlie. According to the news papers at the time of Lemieux selection, He was Charlie’s inside attorney talking to Charlie over 20 times per day. Lemieux knew exactly the liberal opportunist Charlie is. Now that Lemieux has tasted the sweat Senate seat he feels he has to shore up his Republican base if he plans to run against Bill Nelson. Before your appointment, you were in bed with Charlie supporting cap and tax, stimulus money and the health care bill. You only changed your tune after getting into office and you saw that conservatives wanted nothing to do with your position. You were also paid thousands of dollars per month as a consultant to do minority outreach for the RPOF. You had nothing produced and no activity in minority areas anywhere in Florida; you, just like Greer, squandered that money. Lemieux you would have been more credible had you endorsed Marco immediately after Charlie denounced the Republican Party. You are no different that Charlie in politically calculating the benefits for yourself. The last thing Republicans need is a Charlie Crist clone running for Senate in 2012.

    I wouldn’t be so proud getting an endorsement from Mr LeMieux who is also to make a good amount of monies on the sugar sand deal——just another Mr Christ in sheeps
    clothing! Not so sure if Rubio isn’t the same.
