In a web video published this morning, an angry Charlie Crist slams accusations from Governor Rick Scott that the Florida economy was ruined during his time in office. Have a watch.
“Rick Scott is blaming me for the financial crisis. That’s ridiculous”
“The recession wasn’t caused by me or by you. You know who caused it? Greedy Wall Street Bankers and Corporate Take-over Artists, in other words, guys like Rick Scott”
Crist then goes on to the HCA/Columbial Medicare Fraud Scandal that happened while Rick Scott was at the head of that company. This was a recurring theme when Scott first ran for office to succeed Crist in 2010 and it looks like the former Republican turned Democrat is trying to resurrect the issue.
The normal Happy-Go-Lucky, touchy-feely, Charlie is an unusually aggressive mood in this video. It would serve him to act this way more often. Scott didn’t see this type of hostility in his primary against former Attorney General Bill McCullom or in his general election showdown with former CFO Alex Sink, four years ago.
