Florida Governor Charlie Crist stood with Obama today as the President spoke about the economy in Ft Myers. Rumors of gayness have plagued Crist for years, so much so that when he was a potential VP pick he talked about releasing a tape of himself making out with a lady to squash the rumors.
Crist got married this year, but that did little to stop on-line speculation about his personal preferences.
That is why the "burning house" metaphor Obama used today was so unfortunate. Intending to praise Crist he said:
"Every body needs to grab a hose and that is what Charlie Crist is doing here today."
