The Rightwing Takes A Trophy

The Naked Politics blog at the Miami Herald is reporting: Jim Greer is out

Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer just made it official in a call with members of the executive committee: He’s resigning as of Feb. 20.

Greer has had several foot-in-mouth episodes recently, and is a friend of Charley Christ, so the whackos have been after his head in their pursuit of moving the FGOP further to the right. This isn’t directly tied to Rubio’s Senate bid, but it will be seen as a sign of his increasing strength in the party.

Personally I would love to see Rubio beat Christ, as it would make it much easier for Meek to win the election. Charley Christ is a popular guy. He hasn’t really done anything, but he is personally popular with a lot of people, especially in the real center among voters. He would be the odds on favorite to win, if he got through the primary. It looks like the same brilliant plan that cost the Republicans a House seat in the NY-23 race, could cost them a Senate seat from Florida.

that would be a good thing.

otoh, i’ve long maintained that the moderate republicans gave up on their party and took over the democratic party.

Ken Q is working his butt off for Meek, but I just can’t accept the guy. He has shifted too much lately. I understand about the CW that you have to run to the center, but that’s just another political lie that will have to be dealt with. If you aren’t comfortable with your personal views, change them by all means, but don’t attempt to be something you aren’t for an election.

He was going to be labeled a socialist by the GOP regardless, so he might as well make some of the people happy, since there is no way he could make all of the people happy.

Both parties only want to run rightwing candidates, so there is no one representing the left half of the country.

actually, there’s nobody representing the left 2/3 of the country.

Well, Florida is to the right of the rest of country, so it’s probably only 55% to the left of the parties.
