    "Let's be honest -- Sen. Specter didn't leave the GOP based on principles of any kind," he said. "He left to further his personal political interests because he knew that he was going to lose a Republican primary due to his left-wing voting record." Michael Steele


    I think that pretty well sums up my thoughts on it.

    Michael Steele and I see things pretty much the same way.:happy2:

    You mean that abortion is a woman's choice, and Rush Limbaugh is
    "incendiary and ugly" and that the Republican party will be given an
    "off the hook","hip-hop makeover' that would attract even "one armed midgets"?

    Well as he so insightfully remarked once on the Mike Gallagher radio show:

    STEELE: I mean, like Sarah Palin said, you put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig.

    Not intending to hijack, but at first glance I thought you were referring to the other (Spector) who also went over to the dark side...

    I agree his movement is solely for self gain. At 79, the guy is probably senile also. But you know the Dems will maximize the opportunity.:sad-very:

    My for someone who's side has firm control of the power stick you sure sound like you have a lot of anger. YOu do know your side is in control and screwing up the country now don't you?


    Specter was never a republican. He just claimed to be.

    I guess people will do anything to keep getting the paycheck coming. But if he loses the election in 2010, will he revert back?

    He did it before, whatever it takes. Goes with the wind.

    I'd not be surprised at all to see several more go over and not necessarily some of the names typically mentioned when this idea gets floated.

    There you go again Tie, busting poor Teddy's chops. And why? Couldn't be that the guy's only been a senator for 47 YEARS! Cripes! What else do you expect the guy to do for a living?

    On second thought, wonder if he's too old to start courses in water rescue training...
