As Obama rolls out his newest “I was once a Republican, kinda” endorsement, conservatives are having fun pointing to Charlie Crist’s past statements. Crist was a major critic of Obamacare when he was pursuing the GOP nomination for Senate in 2010, but his skepticism of Team Hopenchange goes further back than that.

The same people that are crowing about Crist’s superb judgment in jumping aboard the Obama Express undoubtedly lampooned his judgment in defending Palin in 2008. Political expediency, away!
