With the election just a few weeks out, fox 13’s John Wilson hosted a debate between candidates Charlie Crist, Kendrick Meek, and Marco Rubio. It aired on October 15th on Tampa Bay’s Fox News channel 13 at 6:30pm. Each candidate had a small group of supporters outside the station on Kennedy blvd, in Tampa, FL. A smaller group of energetic supporters rallied around a 4th, seemly unknown, candidate, Alex Snitker. He was outside campaigning because he was not invited to the debate. Too bad, he has a lot of good ideas.
I had the opportunity to interview Alex and much of what he said is the foundation of conservatism, albeit from decades past. Liberals and their socialist ideology would be so far removed from any of his positions that they would think he was from another world.
Trying to keep an open mind while listening to his message may prove near impossible— for some it will be on the other end of their political spectrum. I find Snitker’s ideas refreshing. Not so much with Crist. And Meek—well, dido Obama.
Crist Fresh, but Ideas Stale
Before the debate began Crist stepped out to briefly mingle with his followers. I moved to the front to shake his hand and ask a question. Of course I already knew his answer to my question and I knew he would ignore my question. Crist looked fresh, smelled fresh, had a fresh firm hand shake—too bad his principles are as stale as any other career politician.
The question was; where do you stand on term limits? I ask Rubio and Snitker the same question, and both are for term limits.
