Specter is just another spineless politician who would vote for anything if it met boosting his poll numbers (a lot even for a politician). The man said that the GOP left him. If that was true, I could've respected his decision, but Arlen was pretty quick to go in line with his former rivals. I'd rather have Toomey or Sestak. The Commonwealth is better off without him in office.
Ill post the same thing here i posted in a similar thread
"Yeah Im not getting the Righties joy in Specter being gone. I mean in reality what that does is now make way for a guy to beat them that is even more left than Specter? Not saying im for this one way or another just saying i dont see what the point is?
I guess maybe its good they lost a foe that has a name but it only opens up the door to still lose to someone even less on your side?
Of course if Sestak loses then I guess all is good but that hasnt happened yet?
Its like they dont get if Sestak wins then they lose even bigger then if specter would have stayed and won?
I guess when news is bad you turn anything into good news you can.
a lot of folks on my side don't really care who won the dem primary in pennsyvlania
but obama sure does
cuz he LOVES benedict arlen
its possible but i just think he reached out to him cause he switched parties, and he wanted to show support I dont think he really loved him in any great fashion, he used to vote dem a lot anyway
also not sure this would bother Obama, i mean people not on obama side cry he is so far left and Sestack is further left than arlen so im not seeing him caring to much

Sen. Arlen Specter's primary loss continues bad 2010 for President Obama, Democrats
theres still no real logic behind celebrating specters loss until sestak loses also, its not rocket science
its like this a guy reps didnt like and was 5 on the lefty scale lost to a guy who is a 9. So why would righties be happy about now maybe having there issues decided by a person who is a 9 even FURTHER from their views over a 5 regardless if obama supported the 5? LMAO
im looking for logic behind the "good news" sounds like fluff to me because quite frankly it is
why celebrate specter's loss?
obama, tho, is crying over it
cuz, like he said---LOVE
and, as ap put it, he's 0 for 4
good luck in november
you might want to take a hint from mr critz, y'know, in the general
OPPOSE HEALTH CARE!
ok so we agree its just empty hope right now and fluff to help people feel better but in the end it could change absolutely nothing or possible get worse per their perspectives, ok great LOL
ill wait to theres something REAL to celebrate instead of fantasy
