Democrats will have to learn if they can work with a person of such low moral character and traitorous behavior. It will help that they have leaders that have shown that they will do whatever it takes to win which is exactly how Specter obviously works. That a person would show such devious selfishness at such as time demonstrates a disloyalty that will, no doubt, warm the hearts of the Obama Administration.
Specter says he's switching from GOP to Democrats
"I am unwilling to have my twenty-nine year Senate record judged by the Pennsylvania Republican primary electorate," he said in the statement.
"I don't have to say anything to them. They said it to me," Specter said, when asked in a Capitol corridor about abandoning the GOP.
A senior White House official, speaking on the condition of anonymity because no announcement has yet been made, said at 10:25 a.m. EDT Tuesday President Barack Obama was handed a note while in the Oval Office during his daily economic briefing. The note said: "Specter is announcing he is changing parties." At 10:32, Obama reached Specter by phone and told him "you have my full support" and that the Democratic Party is "thrilled to have you."
This victory for the Democrats has Rahm Emanual written all over it just as the strategy and tactics do in the Minnesota recount. Specter and Franken will make fine additions to their members in Congress and will give Obama 60 vote margin necessary to ride roughshod over the Constitution and the American public.
I will do everything possible to make it as difficult as possible for Specter to retain his seat.
Specter, what an unprincipled low-life.
