Woo hoo! It is high time that traitor switched parties! I have been wanting him to switch since I first registered as a Republican in 2004! Praise God! Hallelujah! If I was Irish and knew how I would do a jig! Now if we can just get Zell Miller to come to our side we would be so much the better! For right now we have one less RINO to worry about.
Okay now that I got that excitement out of my system. I am extremely happy to hear that he is joining the Dems because now we can stop counting him as a Republican and friendly to our platform. Arlen Specter has been a thorn in our side for a very long time. Many will say well having him as a Republican adds to our numbers and we need those numbers to have control in the House. However, what good is it to have him on ours side if he is always siding with the Democrats when it comes to legislation. I would rather have less Republicans who are true to the conservative values that make up the core constituency then to have more Republicans who are always siding with the enemy. It is not the numbers that matter, not entirely anyway, if you can’t get them to vote with you on the matters that concern Americans the most!
I can’t say whether or not Arlen Specter was ever a true Republican or why he even joined the party in the first place. However, I can say with relative confidence that whatever drew him to the GOP has long since died and it is about time he admitted he is a Democrat. It much like political “coming out of the closet.” I am sure he is relieved he doesn’t have to feign to care about us bigoted Republicans anymore. I know when I switched parties it was very much like a coming out for me. I could say things that liberals would cringe at. Things like abortion is murder and there is no two ways around it. Like homosexuality is wrong because Nature says it is wrong and will go out of her way to destroy anyone who consistently engages in it. Things like marriage is not a right, never has been never will be! I was out and I was proud baby! I hope Arlen feels the same and don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya! Good riddance and I don’t know about the rest of the Republican party but I wish he would jumped ship sooner, it would’ve saved real Republicans like me a whole bunch of headaches!
Moral of the story: There is a God! And he’s a Republican. LOL. Okay maybe he’s not a member of the GOP but he is definitely a conservative! LOL
