Arlen Specter Defects To Other Side

See this is what I hate. Politicians are changing their stripes in the middle of the game. I am not a fan of Specter to start, but its making politics more confusing by the moment. Its like chess, Choosing black to start, when you find your not going to win, change it to white. AH, its just not right to flip over to grab the popular vote!
Of course he SAYS that his decision was made due to the constant disagreement with the Republican party, but he also threw in for good measure to show honesty, that he felt he wouldn’t win another election if he didn’t switch. So which are YOU going to believe is his true motive?
I’m going to the selfish fact that all he wants to do is win another election and knows the American public >You and ME< will be stupid enough to just let it go. Even tho he chose and has been playing one side of the chess game and has now switched to the winning team, and STILL harboring his same views! Bullshit is what I say! pure and unrefined Bullshit!

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

    That’s what it looks like to me. Walk quack – duck.. He want to be on the winning team and its not important to play by the rules if you are planning to win.
    Speaking of Vermont – Leahy stated and I quote “In talking with him, I had the impression that he went through much the same that Jim Jeffords of Vermont did. I had the impression that Senator Specter had a feeling that the Republican Party, a great party in this country, had left him– not the other way around– and he’d be more comfortable here.”
    I really think its getting time to just do away with ‘party’s’ as they aren’t working for us what so ever, if a player can just switch whenever it suits their purpose. Its not right.
    A Republican is a republican and a democrat is a democrat unless independent will allow them to be seen if both party’s are being ridiculed HA. ridiculous.
