The self-serving Arlen Specter has loss Pennsylvania’s Democratic Senate primary to Joe Sestak. Specter was defeated by Sestak 54-46. I cannot understand how Specter did not lose by an even wider margin. This is a man who openly admitted he was switching parties to improve his chances for reelection. Why would any Democrat believe he truly espoused their beliefs?
Like a typical loser, Arlen Specter directed some sour grapes towards the Tea Party. He was on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell saying that the Tea Party must be beaten!
“If we’re not careful, if you don’t field the strongest candidate — frankly, like Arlen Specter — they’re going to take over,” Specter said of the tea parties. “Beating the tea party gang is more important than who does the beating.”
“They want to go back to the gold standard,” he added. “It’d be an 18th-century America.”
Yeah, Arlen whatever. Enjoy the unemployment line you self-serving SOB. Hopefully Charlie Crist will follow in Specter’s footsteps and Marco Rubio is already trying to make that happen.
Specter’s loss also marks the fourth time Obama’s support has ended in failure. If I were Barbara Boxer, I would be telling Obama, no more campaigning for me, I’m good!
