From David Hunt: State Sen. John Thrasher, who is chairing the Republican Party of Florida, has not been bashful when he gets a chance to stick it to Gov. Charlie Crist. He told a crowd of Republicans in Ponte Vedra Saturday that he’s glad Crist (who left the GOP in April) has found it lonely to run as an independent for U.S. Senate.
But he cracked Crist a bit harder responding to a reporter’s question about the governor’s response to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico:
I think there is a huge difference between the way this governor is handling this crisis in the state of Florida and the way Jeb Bush handled the hurricanes. Jeb Bush was hands on. He was there to try to figure out ways in which we could solve the problems created by those natural disasters. This governor is more interested in having a photo-op with Barack Obama than he is trying to really solve the problems.
