Some would argue that Specter left the Republican party a long time ago, others that it left him. Alls I know is for moderate republicans like myself, this is another sign that maybe the GOP just don't want us anymore. But can you win in 2012 without us? Because you couldn't in 2008.
I was going to post an opinion, but then I read the part in bold. 100% agree.

Who voted for McCain but moderates? McCain is the ultimate moderate. I didn't vote for him nor did any of the people I know. A few die hards here and there went out but most of the conservatives stayed home. It's your party not ours. If you want to see how many elections moderate Republicans can win you'll have no better example than this past one.

I think you have it the other way around? You don't actually believe the packaging and fluff that they put out about being conservative? They only put that garbage out during elections for the die hards. You can have the Republican party. It stinks!

Specter is a typical floater. He sticks his finger in the wind and sees which way the wind is blowing, no principle, no honor, just strait up political survival.

Obama thinks it may be over one of the 57 states. Either way it is Bush's fault.

Re: Sen. Arlen Specter Switches to the Democratic Party

Just curious why Barry, Nancy and Harry want to deal with the healthcare issue behind closed doors and not let it hit the House/Senate floor.

Re: Sen. Arlen Specter Switches to the Democratic Party

It's not uncommon for someone in Specter's posotion to switch parties. Several Democrats became Reepulicans in the mid 90s so they could protect their seats and be in the majority. Specter is older than dinosaur crap and he's had the cancer twice, so it's not likely that he will be in the Senate for too long as a member of any political party.

How any true conservative can align themselves with the Republican party at this time is completely beyond me. I mean other than the whole thing that we'll be completely communist by tomorrow that is.

They're already cramming down the uber-liberal agenda? I'm not upset because Bush had a BS liberal agenda too. What's the difference?
He did; and you really won't see much of a change.
