TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WFTV) -- Democrat Charlie Crist's campaign isn't wasting time responding to a Republican Party Web ad that blamed him for the state's financial woes.

Crist's gubernatorial campaign released its own Web ad on Monday, throwing blame over the recession back at Republican Gov. Rick Scott.

The ad features Crist speaking directly to the camera, saying it's ridiculous for Scott to blame him for Florida's economic downturn.

Instead, Crist says the recession was caused by greedy Wall Street bankers and corporate takeover artists.

In other words, Crist says, "guys like Rick Scott." Scott has been involved in corporate mergers and acquisitions.

But like it's unfair to blame Florida's part in an international financial crisis on Crist, the same argument can be made of Crist blaming Scott.
