Jim Martin: The only question for Charlie Crist is, were you lying then, or lying now? Given Charlie’s long history of political opportunism, the answer is both.

(Alexandria, VA) – Florida Democrats nominated party-switching, political opportunist Charlie Crist as their nominee for governor on Tuesday, despite the fact Crist had previously won statewide office three times as a Republican, including the office of governor. Democrats settling on the recycled Crist underscores the weakness of a state party unable to field a viable candidate committed to their party platform beyond the last election cycle.

60 Plus Chairman Voices Opinion on Obama and EPA’s War on Coal

“President Obama’s War on Coal is an unmitigated War on Seniors. If implemented, EPA’s radical regulations – aimed at shutting down coal fired power plants – the cheapest and most reliable source of electricity – will ‘necessarily skyrocket’ (as Candidate Obama once said) the cost of electricity and the power bills of senior citizens. To the elderly, especially those on fixed incomes, such an increase would be an economic disaster for them. Coal provides the reliable and affordable electricity America needs. America’s economy runs on coal, senior’s lives literally depend on coal.”  – Jim Martin, Founder and Chairman, 60 Plus Association
