George LeMieux can say he is conservative all he wants, but lets face it, he made Charlie Crist, and he is no conservative. The following quote from the Miami Herald is just a snippet of the positions he has advocated that can not be explained away;
“LeMieux didn’t just advocate Crist’s policies, he helped shaped them. Some are unpopular with conservatives – a global-warming initiative, felons voting rights, a gaming deal with the Seminole Tribe of Florida, accepting President Obama’s stimulus money, an Everglades land purchase that benefitted U.S. Sugar and expanding the role of government in the property insurance market.”
To say that these positions are unpopular with conservatives is like saying that Obama is unpopular with ‘birthers’. These are not unpopular positions, they are antithetical to conservatism. The bottom line is that George LeMieux is nothing but a political hack, and amazingly, he was a political hack before he was ever a politician! What can we expect from the guy once he has to answer to the deep pocket special interests that will fund his election?
Less government, more Freedom!
