He’s just trying to make up for his budget cave in...Trying to get into political heaven by going against a stupid labor bill...
I hope there is someone on the bench, ready to oust this goober...
Lets remain vigilant. Obama wants to use the tyrannical 51 vote rule.
Another absolute truth. And we can thank the "third party" voters for this disaster.
Stick a fork in this and call it done. Card check needs to be banished from memory and allow unions to die their natural death. Today’s unions, (Teacher’s unions, UAW and the government unions) are simply fund-raising arms of the Democratic party, whether the union members want it or agree with it. Union bosses steal and get rich from union members and membership gets little benefit from being in a union.
How does he know that Franken is likely to win?
Interestingly, on the really important bills, Specter usually votes Republican. That’s why his vote for the financial destruction of our descendants surprised me so. This is an attempt to get re-elected, which I think is going to be a fight for him. And, it really might be where he stands.
He is worried about the Primaries. . .
I guess this will end the speculation about his jumping camp. With this move he can’t ever hope for Union financing and without such financing he would be DOA as a Democrat. I guess I will have to call this good news, considering the implications of Cardcheck, but it seems we are stuck with Specter for a while...
Just what I was thinking. Sphincter means nothing. If the Dems really wanted this monstrosity passed badly enough, they’d invoke the nuclear option in a heartbeat. The fact they don’t speaks volumes about the quandary that red state Dem senators are in.
I say enjoy it while it lasts, and still vote for Toomey in the primary!
is he trying to keep his seat finally?
Maybe PA could just elect a Senator who wouldn’t have to think twice about this stupid idea.
Excuse my moment of clarity, but isn’t Arlen well into his 70’s?
He is a RINO and will act conservative until reelected, correct?
For the life of me I do not understand why these elderly guys need to constantly keep running for election. Give it up, retire. What’s the point except fear of losing power?
What is the status of Coleman vs Franken? Have heard nothing about it in a long time.

Maybe flattorney knows?
