Senator Arlen Specter announced today that he is switching parties from Republican to Democrat particularly for his run for re-election in 2010. This came as no surprise to conservatives who already considered Senator Arlen Specter to be a Democrat anyway. What was surprising was Sphincter’s referral to himself as a moderate Republican who felt pushed out of the party by its move to the right. As a conservative, I actually believe that the Republican party may have moved further to the right, but that only puts it in the middle from the left lean it had taken. That means that Sphincter was and is actually a liberal.
The truth behind this move is that Sen. Sphincter knew he could not win in the primary in 2010. The Republicans who have voted him in far too many times have finally reached their limit. This certainly is a gift for Obama to mark his 100th day. Now he has a philibuster-proof Senate even without Al Frankenstein. Sphincter claimed that he is not a guaranteed vote for the Democrats, but I really doubt that.
This truly shines light on a man who is without principles and values. He’ll fit right in with the liberal Democrats.
