Anything to get Elected

February 4, 2010

Arlen Specter is the worst kind of politician; one who will do anything to get re-elected.

The Senator from PA has always been a staunch pro-choice supporter, but he countered his pro-abortion political beliefs in conservative/moderate Pennsylvania by garnering $10 Million in earmarks for abstinence education over the past 6 years while he was a Republican, but now that he is a Democrat he no longer believes in the efficacy of  abstinence programs.  Specter willingly dumped a long held and fought for belief in order to move to the left and win votes in the Democrat Primary.  He is a man with no moral compass or personal values, he simply views every decision through the lens of votes in the next election.

I am willing to wager that if (and that is a strong if with the way Sestak has been polling against him) Specter is able to lie his way past his opposition in the Democrat primary, Specter will almost certainly go to the President, hat in hand, looking once again for abstinence education money for the voters of Pennsylvania.

Since abandoning the Republican Party in April, abstinence is not the only political belief on which Senator Specter has suddenly had a change of mind.  Last year as a Republican he was against the Union Card Check bill, now as a Democrat he is a strong supporter.  Last year as a Republican he was a strong supporter of the troop buildup in Afghanistan, now as a Democrat is is against it.  Last year as a Republican he was against the confirmation of Dawn Johnson at the Justice Department, now as a Democrat he is all for her.  The list goes on.

Arlen Specter is the worst kind of politician; one who will do anything to get re-elected.
