    Re: Specter hints Kemp died of GOP agenda

    Regardless of my disagreements with the Republican Party on health care, this was nothing more than a political ploy by Spector. I think it's disgusting that he would use Kemp's death to accentuate his politics. It also proves how little he knows about cancer research. My uncle was part of a Nobel Prize winning team on cancer research a bit more than a decade ago, and I've talked with him about this issue. Cancer is not that simple. The GOP didn't kill Jack Kemp. I may respect Spector for standing up for what he believes, but I don't respect him for this comment.

    Arlen Specter is the epitome of what is often so hated about politicians and he has no shame, frightful combination.

    Lieberman went independent for what he believed in or his core principles. Specter did it purely for political reasons much like this comment. He is playing the partisan game and Lieberman was not.

    The 2 are not really comparable.

    If I thought Specter did it with even an ounce of earnestness for a any issue or principal whatsoever other than his awareness that he can't possibly win as a Republican next time around I'd have no issue with him. But he'll basically be anyone's bitch just to stay relevant.

    It all depends on the type of cancer. There are quite a few different types of cancer which the majority of people survive(Prostate, Thyroid, Melanoma, etc.):

    Re: Specter hints Kemp died of GOP agenda

    I can't blame you for making this crap up, because every right wing media outlet is saying it. Specter did not say "the GOP killed Kemp". Here is the totality of what he did say:

    If we had pursued what President Nixon declared in 1970 as the war on cancer, we would have cured many strains. I think Jack Kemp would be alive today. And that research has saved or prolonged many lives, including mine.
    Now, that seems like a true statement. What part of this actual quote do you disagree with?

    You know, folks, this is a good example of the difference between partisanship and integrity. I think Blackdog nailed it. Lieberman did what he did on principle. Spector for political gain. Lieberman seems to care about the issue. Spector seems to care about winning.

    It's not the quote. It's the implication of the quote.

    The OP seems to imply that the GOP agenda involved letting people with cancer die. The actual quote clears up a lot.

    I disagree because cancer research has never stopped. It has not even lightened up. We have made a great deal of progress in the area. The problem with a cure is the many types of cancer.

    His statement is political hackery at it's best.
