I think the Tea Baggers may yet be a gift under the Dem Party's tree! LOL

You're an idiot! Arlen Specter's a Democrap! Always was! 95% of his votes were along Democrap party lines.

They allow for uneducated Moron Moochers, such as yourself, to vote for more Liberal Looney Looters, so more of the hard EARNED money can be stolen from the Patriotic Producers in order to support said Moron Moochers. That's what's wrong with elections!

No, he was a Rescumlican, he just didn't vote with the wacko wing of the Party - which these days is pretty much all of it. I think that's why he quit, in fact....:)

We need to get rid of all the ARLEN SPECTERS in Washington..most of them need to go ..they obviously aren't getting the message with the latest legislation with all the earmarks and not following what the military said ..
all of a sudden a 1900 page document appears out of thin air and needs to be voted on immediately..another Pelosi trick ?
Both Republicans and Democrats need to start soon serving us ...
I am tired of peoople just constantly taking free gifts from the govt..we have an entire generation on unemployment and welfare..only those mentally and physically handicapped should rec' anything from the govt everyone else needs to fend for themselves .. if they get hungry enough they will work..and by the way there are plenty of jobs out there unfilled ..those on unemployment if there was none the jobs would be filled ..

They are fine...but unless you pay taxes, even just a little, you should not get to vote. Voters that dont pay taxes will vote for the candidate that promises them even more free sh't, and as we all know, poor people are ruining this country.

Arlen was never a real Republican only an opportunist to get himself elected. His number is up, both parties canned this turncoat. He was like a double agent and no one trusts a double agent. Adios Arlen. Too bad there are a whole bunch more leaving with ya. Maybe in 2012 the Chamber will be cleaned out a little more.

Arlen, Arlen. First you were a Republican and then a Dem. You were as inspiring as the average cinder block. Physically, you bear striking resemblance to Norman Bates' mother from "Psycho." Other than your oratory being a cure for insomnia, most can't think of anything you accomplished despite a long career. So I think I speak for those of all political affiliations when I say FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SHUT UP & GO AWAY!

That's a good idea. So since corporations don't pay taxes, they should not have free speech or the more importantly, the ability to buy our politicians. BTW I don't know ANYONE who pays NO TAXES.
