“Since my election in 1980, as part of the Reagan Big Tent, the Republican Party has moved far to the right,” declared U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter (RINO-PA) today. “I now find my political philosophy more in line with Democrats than Republicans.” As such, Specter announced that he was switching parties and will run for re-election next year as a Democrat.
Oh, puh-lease. Specter’s political philsophy has ALWAYS been more in line with the Democrats than Republicans. It’s not that the GOP has moved too far to the right; it’s that Specter has always been too far to the Left. Indeed, he was one of only three Republicans in the entire United States Congress who voted for Obama’s “spendulus” package.
Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, Arlen!
