It’s about time. KDKA reports Turncoat Caucus Sen. Arlen Specter was met with jeers at a Pa. press conference. Betrayal of core fiscal conservative principles has consequences.
U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter was greeted with jeers at a press conference in Cranberry Township.
Conservatives are fuming after Specter cast the deciding vote that led to the passage of President Barack Obama’s stimulus plan.
Specter, 79, acknowledges his run for re-election will be tough.
He says he’s not completely happy with Obama’s plans but he points out that he was able to cut the price tag by over $100 billion and he says he was able to increase the amount of tax cuts.
Even so, Specter acknowledges the Republican Party’s conservative wing will attempt to unseat him in next year’s primary race.
Maybe Sen. Specter can dial up the president, who can stroke his ego and call him a patriot again to make him feel better.
Comment: The truth is that Specter betrayed something greater; he betrayed and betrays his oath to the US Constitution.
