A Children's Collection of Wisconsin Children Whining about Arlen Specter

Mary Eden:
Specter has changed his party affiliation because he's desperately trying to salvage his political career. It's as simple as that.


It will be interesting to see how Specter functions as a Dem.

If he thinks that Republican Party has become too far-Right, I wonder how he'll manage among the extremists of the Democrat Party.


I see Specter's move as a positive sign for 2010. The Republican Party lost its way for a while. Now, it's in the process of reorganizing. The Paul Ryan Republicans are revitalizing the party and energizing a new generation of conservatives.
Chris at the Badger Blogger:
Specter is a coward and once again proved it today.

This is a great day for the GOP and Conservatives everywhere, Yes it will offically give the Socialists their Super Majority once Senator Stuart Smalley gets confirmed but hell they had that already with Specter and Snow et al voting with them anyway.
Term Limits an Idea that more needed now than ever.
The usually much smarter than this Letters in Bottles:
It might be a pretext, but if Specter is leaving primarily because of the stimulus vote - and not the GOP's social conservatism, foreign adventuring, anti-intellectualism, etc. - then I think it was time for him to go. That may sound rash given the GOP's heavily reduced position in the Senate. But opposition to the stimulus represents a legitimate focal point of opposition centered on fiscal conservatism and limited government that should be able to appeal to a wider range of individuals than the Bush-era GOP. It's a better least common denominator around which to form a revitalized party, as I think Rep. Paul Ryan, among others, has shown.
Kathy Carpenter:
Arlen Specter has behaved as a democrat for a long time, thank goodness none of my money will every make it into his campaign coffers.

Bye, bye Arlen
Good riddance! We need to get rid of EVERY RINO in elected office.

And while we're at it, get rid of every so-called Republican "pundit" that is a RINO, too. Meghan McCain is the first on that list!

I knew I never liked that guy.

The (Somewhat) Daily RAG:

So just last month Specter says he's sticking with the GOP because the party needs men and women of diverse beliefs and, when the political waters seem to get bouncy, he jumps ship. Michael Steele is right on that score -- Specter didn't just leave the GOP on principle.

If Arlen Specter wants to reform the GOP, there's a lot of work to be done. The harvest may be great and the laborers few but he'd be a man of greater integrity if he stood up for the principles of Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan instead of running from them.

I don't care if Specter is left-wing, right-wing or center-wing. Today he's chicken-wing.

Blogger Beer:

Arlen Spector is now a Democrat. Big whoop. The Democrats and their lackeys in the media are characterizing this as a moderate not feeling welcome in an extremist party, but if they were honest they would have to characterize JFK as a right-wing extremist, which they don't.

Peter Digaudio:

Good. Don’t let the door hit you in the rear end on the way out. Spector has been a RINO for as long as I can remember. He was a key figure in getting the $1.3 trillion porkulus bill passed and has never been a reliable vote on anything.

Folks, this is not a bad thing. The Republican Party is much better off without Spector and his ilk who keep trying to drag the party further and further to the left and making it the “Me too! Me too!” Party.


Fact is, Spector is no moderate. Spector is a liberal far more at home with the lefties in the Democrat Party.

The real intellectual wing of the state conservative movement -- the Kevin Fischers, etc. -- seems to be too busy chickenheading Scott Walker as he begins his march toward self-imolation to comment on the move today. We'll be sure to include their remarks in volume II.

Nicely done, Chief.
