This is more just Breitbart propaganda and lies.
I heard an interview today on the radio with Arlen Specter and Michael Smerconish, and Specter said the same thing, that he never made a “promise” to Santorum. Except, after Smerconish pressed him Specter said although he made no specific verbal “promise” (freaking duh, nobody would admit such a thing anyway) he said that when Santorum asked him if he, Specter, as the incoming chair of the Judiciary Committee, would help with Bush’s Supreme Court nominees, Specter assured him he would treat them “fairly”. Santorum then went on to do as Bush asked, and endorsed Specter over homo hugger Toomey. I got the distinct impression it was your typical political “wink and nod” agreement. And indeed, Specter helped shepherd through Bush’s nominees, who now sit on the Supreme Court.
This story is a load of horse manure.
At the least, Santorum severely stretched the truth by taking credit for endorsing Spector who promised to support Bush’s Supreme Court nominees and for taking credit for the Alito and Roberts ending up on the court. Santorum takes credit for too many accomplishments in the House and Senate. I believe that truth checkers will continue to have a field day with Santorum’s boasting.
Maybe Rick knew that Toomey supported and wanted to vote for gays in the military and Rick thought that would be horrible so he endorsed Specter. Toomey went on and voted YES to gays in the military, but he is the conservative one? I am missing something besides the hatred towards Santorum from some of you guys.
Ever since Breitbart had that to-do regarding the homosexuals at CPAC, he has been unreliable as a conservative. When he held his party for the “gays” and made such a big deal out of “welcoming them,” I dropped Andrew like a hot rock.
