If Scott Brown wins Tuesday, Charlie Crist ought to pack it in Wednesday, as a Brown win would not just be a repudiation of the Obama agenda (originally, crassly, embraced by Crist earlier) but a revolt against "the machine", be it Democrat or Republican.
Rubio speaks out on The Corner about Obama's ludicrous new "bank tax":
Earlier this week, I spoke out against President Obama’s wrongheaded decision to place an onerous and punitive new tax on the financial institutions Americans rely on to loan them money to buy homes, safeguard their money, and fund their businesses. Since then, I have been subjected to vicious attacks from Democratic party operatives, liberal bloggers, and even some in the media. Tired old stories long ago proven meritless were rehashed with new sinister headlines. Even the bank that gave me a line of credit on my home was dragged into this.
This is life in Obama, Reid, and Pelosi’s America, where not only is free enterprise attacked, but so too is anyone who dares to defend it.
I wear liberal attacks as a badge of honor because ultimately my campaign is not about me, but about giving a voice to the millions of Floridians who are fed up with the policies they see coming out of Washington, just like this bank tax.
No one should be fooled by the spin. President Obama’s bank tax is not about recouping money for the American taxpayer. If President Obama were truly serious about that, he would call on Congress to repeal his failed stimulus program tomorrow so that future generations won’t be saddled with its crippling debt.
President Obama’s bank tax is about finding new ways for the Democrats who control Congress to confiscate more money to pay for their big-government takeover...
Give 'em hell, (Senator) Rubio!
