A Childrens Collection of Wisconsin Children Whining about Arlen Specter, Vol. II

More Kathy Carpenter:
Either way, the load is off the Republicans to carry this guy when he has betrayed the principles of our party. It is easy to say that he will betray the Democrat Party principles also.
Kevin Fischer:

Arlen Specter lied....

I didn't know he was still a Republican.
Patrick McIlheran:

Though Arlen Specter, the nominally Republican U.S. senator who today came out of the glass-door closet he’d been in for years, switching to the Democrat side, handily illustrates the objective way of measuring RINOtude.

Fox tells it:

“Quinnipiac University Polling Institute . . . conducted a poll last month showing Specter running far better as a Democrat than as a Republican.

“Democrats gave him a 71 percent job approval rating, while Republicans gave him 36 percent.”

So 71% of the time, you’re pleasing the adherents of the other side, while only 36% of the time do you make any sense at all to your own side. Oh, and Specter was critical to passing the “stimulus” bloat-up of Washington that attracted all of three Republican votes in all of Congress.

Yeah, that’s when the label is nothing but.

Good Riddance to Specter
The Conservative Casanova:
Specter is a bitter man who is motivated purely out of his lust for power. He saw the proverbial writing on the wall that conservatives were no longer going to support his reckless politics and therefore sacrificed his integrity in order to keep his job.

The Senator should enjoy his time in Washington while it lasts because he has enraged Republicans in Pennsylvania and their anger will spread like a brush fire across the state.
Their argument is essentially the same as Specter's: "The party left me and moved right".

This is political drivel as it is abundantly clear that the GOP was much more conservative during the days of Reagan and has exponentially moved towards the left of center. One needs to look no further than our most recent presidential nominee to recognize the amount of influence moderates now have within the party.

Which of these methods did you use before undertaking this project?

Sorry, but this cynical, self-serving move had absolutely nothing to do with values, policy, or any high-minded thinking of any kind- though President Obama surely would like for you to think that.

Everybody knows he did it because he was down 21% in the polls leading-up to the GOP primary for his seat, he already admitted as such- Joey Pluggs made a deal with him. The sad truth is that this mediocre hack has spent three decades in the Senate, while accomplishing very little.

And Barack and him have a lot in common- as unprincipled political opportunists, I’m sure they’ll get along just great-

Just a little over a month ago, the Specter said in an interview that he wouldn’t switch parties due to the importance of checks and balances.

And back in 2001, Sen. Arlen Specter, then a Republican, proposed a rule forbidding party switches… he was upset when Vt Sen. Jim Jeffords’ left the GOP to become an independent.

Who knows what the truth is with this guy, you’ll never get it from him.

With all due respect, Senator- don’t let the door hit your butt on the way out. Nobody on our side’s going to miss you.
