WHAT!! Republican Arlen Specter Switching To Democratic Party!!

Posted by thejamkingshow on April 28, 2009

DAMN!!!!! Finally, the dam is bursting, Keep up your racist rants Sean Hannity and Rush Limgasbag because you two racist assclowns are killing your party of rethugs!! I think this is very smart of Specter. We welcome him to the Dem party. I know that it is probably because he wants to get re-elected but that is OK. He fell in line on the stimulus and I find him to be one of the few thinking (past) GOPers

Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Penn.) is becoming a Democrat.

“I have decided to run for re-election in 2010 in the Democratic primary,” said Specter in a statement. “I am ready, willing and anxious to take on all comers and have my candidacy for re-election determined in a general election.”

“Since my election in 1980, as part of the Reagan Big Tent, the Republican Party has moved far to the right. Last year, more than 200,000 Republicans in Pennsylvania changed their registration to become Democrats. I now find my political philosophy more in line with Democrats than Republicans.”

Sources told the AP that an announcement could come later in the day — or Wednesday.

Vice President Joe Biden and Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell have urged Specter to switch parties in the past.
