Let the Two Minutes of Hate Against Charlie Crist Begin.

As Republicans gather in Tampa to nominate Mitt Romney, Americans can expect to hear tales of how President Obama has failed to work with their party or turn the economy around. But an element of their party has pitched so far to the extreme right on issues important to women, immigrants, seniors and students that they've proven incapable of governing for the people. Look no further than the inclusion of the Akin amendment in the Republican Party platform, which bans abortion, even for rape victims. 
The truth is that the party has failed to demonstrate the kind of leadership or seriousness voters deserve.
Of course, the same was true in 2010, when Crist ran as a Republican for US Senate, but better late than never.
