Seemingly, Democrats are already regretting Arlen Specter's defection to their side.
Holy cow, where is the damn Senate leadership when you need it? Specter gets the attention he craves thumbing his nose at established political lines (listen to what he had to say when Jim Jeffords left the GOP), brags about supporting the stimulus bill but then brags about not supporting a bill that would have enabled Americans to get the healthcare plan the majority of us want without the typical gamesmanship and obstructionism that mark GOP tactics now and brags that he cannot be counted on to support the Obama/Democratic agenda despite the fact that most people think Obama is on the right track.
Woo hoo! What a great addition to the Democratic Party!
Forget all the B.S. about Americans supporting the Obama agenda; President Obama hasn't presented an agenda, just a few talking points that will sound great until he explains what his ideas will cost. It's hilarious to hear liberals already moaning that Specter isn't toeing the Democrat line.
But, seriously, what did they expect? It isn't like they couldn't read the numbers. Note to Joe Biden: a guy that has a 44.47% rating from the American Conservative Union and a 60% rating from the ACLU isn't dependable for either political party. Specter's concerned about only one advancement: his own.
UPDATE: Actually, I think Specter fits in quite well with the Democrats. He's blaming the GOP for Jack Kemp's death.
