Specter's Exit Long Overdue
I'm pleased to see that PA Senator Arlen Specter has switched parties. He should feel right at home with the Secular/Socialists (the Democrat Party). Sen. Specter was the poster boy of RINO's. I honestly can't think of one single value that Senator Specter holds in common with conservatives.
I've always known he is far left on social issues - that was a given. However I mistakenly thought that Sen. Specter may still possess some remote sense of fiscal conservatism. So much for that! When he supported the fiscally irresponsible porkulus bill that was a new low - even for him. At that point I knew that we could never count on Sen. Specter to vote responsibly on anything.
Amongst all of the chatter in the liberal media about the Tax Day Tea Parties being Obama bashing events (which they were not), they mostly neglected to mention that a lot of Republicans got called out too. In fact, at the Dallas Tea Party the loudest boos of the evening came at the mention of Senator Specter's name.
Senator Specter had to know how disliked he is within the Republican party. The latest Rasmussen poll had former Rep. Pat Toomey with a 21 point lead over Sen. Specter in the 2010 GOP primary race for U.S. Senate. Clearly Sen. Specter could never win again as a Republican. Now let's hope Sen. Specter's desperate attempt to prolong his disgraceful Senate career as a Secular/Socialist (Democrat) comes up short. Go future Senator Toomey and good riddance Senator Specter!
