Arlen Specter Sells Out…Again

spectreNo, this isn’t Senator Arlen Specter, but rather James Bond’s arch enemy Blofeld. 

But if this bloated pork-ridden, mind-boggling chunk of debt known as the “stimulus” bill is bad for America and freedom (and I believe it is), then perhaps Specter and SPECTRE have something in common.

Radio talk show host Laura Ingraham took Senator Arlen Specter (RINO-PA) to the woodshed for defecting to the Democrats (again) and supporting the porkulus “stimulus” bill.

“Is it nice to be wined and dined at the White House?” Ingraham asked. “And, you’re treated pretty well when you’re a Republican bucking other Republicans, right Senator?”

Spectre, er, Specter took umbrage at Laura’s insinuation that he’s a little too cozy with Democrats.

“Now let’s get off it Laura,” Specter replied. “I’m not drinking any wine at the White House and I don’t dine at the White House. If the president wants to talk to me – I talk to him and I make my own independent judgment. Don’t give me the wine and dine baloney young lady.”

Ingraham asked Specter to help her out and assist her in understanding how spending a trillion dollars to further fatten an already bloated federal government is supposed to stimulate the economy.

I don’t know about Laura, but I wasn’t helped by Specter’s attempt.

Specter defects from the Republican Party to the Democrats far too much, and the Democrats abandon the American way (i.e. capitalism, freedom, limited government) far too much.  

Specter should just change his party affliation and end any remaining confusion.

  1. Specter is the exposed tip of a stealthy Republican trade off. which goes: You Dems forget Truth Commisions and prosecution efforts agains Bush, and we'll let the Stimulus Package eek by., although we get to look grudging about it.

    There's a gun at working America's head. The demand is about moving on… after iraq. The demand comes down to Fight and Forget. …or I'l take your job and your house.

  2. Hello.
    When, as a kid in Delaware, I listened to Pa. Attorney Gen. Arlan Specter speak.
    As an adult, I listen to Senator Arlan Specter speak.
    Fair is fair.

  3. What is Specter supposed to do, NOTHING? Yeah, there's some pork there…but there is no more time left…action must be taken…. I give him credit him for having courage……

  4. If you're running full-steam toward a cliff, would it be better to slam down the accelerator…or go nowhere?

    If you're wrecking your life on a drug-crazed bing, would it be better to pick up the pace…or do nothing?

    If you're in debt over your head, should you buy more things and take out more loans…or do nothing?

    Sometimes, especially when you're digging your grave deeper, the best thing to do is do nothing.

  5. I am so proud of Laura for her gutsy approach to Senator Specter. It is high time that someone with credibility and integrity dares to face this double faced so called republican. His answers were not only stupid, but rather expressed the arrogance of someone who has been too long in power; void of reason, and worse yet refusing to discuss the issue. I hope the people of Pennsylvania remember this traitor next election cycle.

  6. Arlen Specter has sold out! I hold him responsible for sinking the US into the doldrums of recession and exacerbating the the duplicitous goals of the Democratic party. Wake up America have we not learned the lessons of the depression. The democrats are all about feeling – can't wait to see how they feel when we hit 25% unemployment. Have they not learned from Jimmy Carter and the late 70s! Why are they dragging out those failed policies!

  7. Rob, what courage- to go along with the crowd? – to jump of the cliff when someone is trying to puch you off?
