Truth is the beginning of wisdom…

Arlen Specter has put his loyalty to his own political career above his duty to his state and nation … typical of self-serving politicians who are not there for what they can do for their constituents but for themselves!

Arlen Specter’s party change should outrages you for two reasons:

First Specter claimed it was philosophical – and pointed his finger of blame at Republicans all over America for his defection to the Democrats. I don’t believe that for a minute because from his own mouth he said it was the only way he would have any chance of winning, thereby committing a purely political and self-serving act. His love for the title of Senator was more important than loyalty to those that elected him.

As recently as April 9th, Senator Specter said he would run in the Pennsylvania primary next year as a Republican. Why the sudden change of heart? Clearly, this was an act based on political expediency by a craven politician desperate to keep his Washington power base … this is not the act of a bona fide statesman.

He was facing defeat in Pennsylvania’s 2010 Republican primary due to his left-wing voting record, and an end to his 30 year (too long) career in the U.S. Senate. He had also peddled his services – and his vote – to the leftist Obama Democrats who aim to remake America with their leftist plan.

Second Arlen Specter handed Barack Obama and his band of radical leftists nearly absolute power in the United States Senate. In leaving the Republican Party and joining the Democrats he absolutely undercut Republicans’ efforts to slow down Obama’s radical agenda through the threat of filibuster.

His defection to the Democrat Party puts the Democrats in an almost unstoppable position to pass Obama’s destructive agenda of income redistribution, health care nationalization, and a massive expansion of entitlements.
