Arlen Specter: crazy old coot, or shameless opportunist jerk?
Sen. Arlen Specter, Pennsylvania Democrat, said part of the reason he left the Republican Party last week was disillusionment with its healthcare priorities, and suggested that had the Republicans taken a more moderate track, Jack Kemp may have won his battle with cancer.
Mr. Specter continued: “If we had pursued what President Nixon declared in 1970 as the war on cancer, we would have cured many strains. I think Jack Kemp would be alive today. And that research has saved or prolonged many lives, including mine.”
Going by that logic, then the Republicans saved your life, Arlen?
Welcome to Arlen, Dems:
Buyers’ remorse sets in.
