How perfect is this new coo some twosome? From the Miami Herald:
Jim Messina, campaign manager for President Obama’s 2012 reelection, has joined Charlie Crist’s campaign for governor.
“RT to help me welcome @Messina2012 to the People’s Team. Join us at http://charliecrist.com,” Crist said via Twitter on Monday night.
Shortly after that announcement, the campaign touted another big-hire from Obama’s team: Teddy Goff, digital director for the president’s reelection campaign, who oversaw its social media, web video and online advertising efforts.
Goff has been hired along with his firm, Precision Strategies, which includes other top Obama advisors.
For Crist, the announcement serves multiple purposes: It underscores the close ties Crist has with Obama’s political team, it quiets concerns from some Democrats doubting Crist’s party bonafides and it softens the blow of the mysterious departure of Bill Hyers late last year, who quit before he officially became campaign manager. …
The Republican Party of Florida’s communications director, Susan Hepworth, tied Messina to Obamacare and PolitiFact’s “Lie of the Year” in this statement: “As Charlie Crist tries desperately to cover up his failed record he will definitely need help from the ultimate spin doctor who sold the lie of the year that ‘if you like your healthcare plan you can keep it.’”
I guess Charlie Crist figures that if these liars for hire can deceive the entire country about Barack Obama, they should be able to drag his sorry, phony rear end over the finish line.
Let me take this opportunity to reiterate the fact that we don’t need any more presidential candidates from FloriDUH, if you get my drift.
