Well, the Senate‘s biggest liberal RHINO turned his back on his party permanently today. The walking sack of jello folded just weeks after denying he had any intention of switching. Wait; he lied? Well, he will fit in well, now won’t he! Can’t say I’m totally sorry because I have hated to see his face after his mistreatment of several conservative judicial candidates the past 20 years.
In a March 17th interview with The Hill, Specter said he absolutely would not switch parties:
[Democrats] are trying very hard for the 60th vote. Got to give them credit for trying. But the answer is no.
I’m not going to discuss private talks I had with other people who may or may not be considered influential. But since those three people are in the public domain, I think it is appropriative to respond to those questions.
I am staying a Republican because I think I have an important role, a more important role, to play there. The United States very desperately needs a two-party system. That’s the basis of politics in America. I’m afraid we are becoming a one-party system, with Republicans becoming just a regional party with so little representation of the northeast or in the middle atlantic. I think as a governmental matter, it is very important to have a check and balance. That’s a very important principle in the operation of our government. In the constitution on Separation of powers.
