Bill Clinton said it depends on what the definition of “is” is. Florida candidate for Governor Charlie Crist does him one better in a recent interview with WPTV’s “To the Point.”
There was a time when Crist defined being pro-Life as being willing to sign an abortion ban. Now that he’s running as a Democrat, instead of a Republican, that time, like the definition of pro-Life, seems to have changed for Charlie Crist.
“I am pro-life and what I mean by that is I’m for life,” Crist said. “I think most of us are for life. And I think that’s very important to state because even though I am pro-life, which I mean I am for life doesn’t mean I want to tell a woman what to do with her body and I never have.”
Oops! Flashback to 2006:
Attorney General Charlie Crist would sign an abortion ban similar to South Dakota’s if he were elected governor, he said Wednesday before announcing proposals to increase adoption and protect children from Internet predators.
The Florida GOP’s Communications Director Susan Hepworth was quick to respond, “He’s lying by the definition in the dictionary.”
It’s said you don’t need a weatherman to know which way the winds is blowing; perhaps when it comes to Charlie Crist, you do.
