Rick Scott ad: Obama backs Crist. Next Scott ad: water is wet

@MarcACaputo

Maybe voters forgot that Florida's then-Republican governor, Charlie Crist, stood on stage and literally embraced President Obama and his stimulus plan.

Maybe voters forgot that, in 2010, Republican Marco Rubio used it against Crist in a Senate primary.

Maybe voters forgot that, in 2012, Crist appeared on stage at the Democratic National Convention and advocated for Obama's reelection. And maybe they forgot, too, that Crist campaigned for Obama all over Florida.

Maybe voters forgot that, at the end of 2012, Crist tweeted out a photograph of himself and his wife at a White House event to mark his official decision to become a Democrat.

Maybe voters didn't hear about Crist stumping with Obama's wife, Michelle Obama, on Friday in Orlando and Miami Gardens.

So now that Obama's approval ratings are more abysmal than Crist's opponent, Gov. Rick Scott, the incumbent wants everyone to still know that Crist backs Obama.
