I do applaud this move, even if I don’t applaud the Specter. The nation will be better off as a result of this about face.
Thanks for your efforts...keep it up!
Pardon my faulty arithmetic, but, if Snowe and Collins side with the Dems, doesn’t it mean it will pass? Or have they already voiced opposition?
I am Just trying to make you Proud..hahaha It was actually Cooler In West Chester than Anchorage 24 f Brrr
He will betray us somewhere else down the line, making up for this in spades. Bet on it.
Specter has no honor and no comprehension of the concept of honor. He couldn’t spell LOYALTY or HONOR with an unabridged dictionary shoved up his butt.
Hey, you’re back! Awesome!
Congratulations on your fine work with grass-roots conservatives in PA. I’m sure you’ll be quite busy with Pat Toomey taking on Specter in the GOP Senate primary once again-—and on to victory in 2010.
Anything you need, let me know.
“Hard to say. 2006 was a bad year for Republicans nationwide, but Penn is so far gone its tough to say.”
So, yes, a conservative Republican can win an open-seat Senate race in PA, especially in 2010 (when the governorship is also open and there is no presidential election). Economic and social conservative Pat Toomey can unite all wings of the GOP and attract enough socially conservative Democrats (perhaps the largest voting block in PA) to win the race.
You may be right, but not necessarily. The Republican nominee needs to be at least somewhat populist on economic issues. Pat Toomey’s support for Free Trade is a negative, and he’s not great on illegal aliens, either.
Still in the USA, but heading back to the sand very soon. :(
I’m of the opinion that Joe Hoeffel was an uninspiring candidate and that Toomey would have bested him had he won the primary last time.
He can certainly win this time. Rendell would likley beat him or Specter but it doesn’t look like he’ll run. PA is certainly not “too far gone” in the least.
2010 is not 2006 and Toomey won’t be running against Casey. Being pro-life will win a rat many votes in PA (though Santorum beat a weak pro-life rat (Congressman Klink) in 2000 ))) like Casey JR. (allegedly) in 2006. The terrible year 2006 and Casey popularity is what sunk Santorum.
The old fart seems to vote his conscience, maybe he really is against it (at this time at least). Or maybe he knows such a vote would majorly hamper his primary chances.
We in Pa are working on it.
