ANALYSIS/OPINION:

In “Club for Growth at odds with Crist” (Nation, June 29), Donald Lambro noted that Gov. Charlie Crist, Florida Republican, broke his anti-tax pledge as governor but that now, campaigning in Florida’s Republican primary for the Senate, he not only pledges to vote against tax increases but even promises that this time he will keep his pledge.

As the saying goes, fool us once, shame on you; fool us twice, shame on us. As Mr. Crist demonstrates, pledges mean nothing to him. The Club for Growth, Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform and Florida voters should know by now that when a politician says, “This time I will honor my pledge,” that pledge is worthless.

Mr. Crist used his gubernatorial position to support President Obama. To say he is a Republican in name only (RINO) is being kind.
