Defeat Specter

I have mentioned here and on the podcast that Arlen Specter is one of the last moderate Republicans that I respect–he was logically consistent in his support for Second Amendment rights while also being pro-choice. However, he was never that great on fiscal issues. I respected him, but he was never one of my favorites.

However, in the last week he has completely squandered my respect. In addition to supporting a stimulus package that is not only expanding government but laying the foundations for the further growth of the nanny state, he has also shown the utmost contempt for those who dare to debate him on the “necessity” of this measure. He has bought in lock, stock and barrel to the Democrat’s fear tactics and has done little more than sell out any remaining belief he may have had in small government to give President Obama his precious appearance of bi-partisanship. 

With that, I think now is high time for Specter to leave. However, he’s made it fairly clear that its going to be on his terms. So let’s give him a fair trial. Only the citizens of PA will be able to reach the final verdict, but we can do all we can to present the evidence. 

Go to and pledge to do your part for Specter’s 2010 Primary challenger.
