    See you've all fallen for it.

    This is nothing more than a distraction. People are trying to make as much of a ruckus about this story as they can as part of their political propoganda war. "OMG see the Republicans they are finished cuz they aren't fillibuster proof now". What a bunch of bull. Nothing has changed. Spector wouldn't have been much of a help anyways. The balance of power remains unchanged.

    The only reason you're hearing about this is because the MSM would rather try to further destroy the Republican party rather than focus on the scam happening with AIG and GM right now.

    Yeah, that darned MSM.

    Jesus christ, the success of this brainwashing is, frankly, horrifying.

    the title of this thread is entirely arbitrary.

    Yes the funny part of it all is that Rush, Hannity, Fox, Steele, and the rest all fell for it too. They're playing right into the Democrat's hands with this story.

    He did it just to stay in power, methinks. I wouldn't be suprised if he changed back once he gets re-elected.

    Honestly this has more negatives for the Democratic party than the Republican party. They are now "filibuster-proof" and as long as they continue being completely awful, people will start thinking it's dems fault.

    Do you know what is massively large news? When someone changes the little letter in front of the state they represent. Serious business.

    Well it is kind of big news in the world of politics. If it didn't matter then he wouldn't have changed affiliations.

    What's really funny is watching KaiserWarrior get all bent out of shape. :lol:

    Just because Arlen Specter changed parties doesn't mean that he's going to go with the democrats on everything. Even you were saying that he switched so he could get re-elected - not because of ideology.

    That's not how it looks publicly though. If Franken gets seated, there will be 60 elected Democrats in Congress. vis-a-vis, even if all the Republicans banded together, they couldn't prevent any legislation from passing.

    It probably doesn't mean much as far as what people will vote for, but it will look bad for the Democrats (who "control" Congress) if public opinion remains bad (which it likely will).

    What can I say? I rage when people make completely retarded assertions like "ZOMG HE CHANGED THE LABEL IN FRONT OF HIS NAME NOW HE WILL COMPLETELY ABANDON EVERYTHING HE HAS EVER STOOD FOR!!!1!!1!!".

    LOL! Who cares where Specter's heart lies, anything that further demoralizes the wacky right brightens my day. But, even that won't matter once we confiscate all their guns, herd them all into FEMA camps and convert them all to Islam!

    Hail Obama!

    His views were part of the corruption of the republican ideals. I don't care if that represents his state or not and frankly that has nothing to do with my point. If you don't know what I'm talking about fine, but reposting what Kaiser said is just stupid.
