Sen. Arlen Specter, the moderate conscience of Pennsylvania Republicans, on Wednesday urged the party to re-evaluate its priorities in the wake of nationwide election losses and called for a more progressive agenda that changes the strategy in Iraq and puts more emphasis on education and health care at home.
Specter’s reaction to the election is “Let’s surrender to the terrorists AND the Democrats!” Is Specter a French name?
In addition to the war, which he called a key factor in the losses of fellow Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Rick Santorum and others, Specter said his party will have to become "a lot more progressive and a lot less ideological."
So, let me get this straight. If you’re progressive (also known as “socialist”), then you are not ideological?
With politicians like Specter, the question is not, “Is America on a highway to hell?” The question is, “How have we survived this long?”
