Default The GOP is cleaning house!!

Goodbye Arlan Specter!! He's announcing right now his intention to switch party affiliations from Repub to Dem. After seeing how bleak his poll numbers are in a GOP primary, he insists that his reasons for switching is because he's more in line with the Dem's way of thinking, and NOT that because he was about to get his dumb ass bounced from the party in a GOP primary.. I say goodbye and good ridence to a career douche bag...This is the "brain wonder" who came up with the Single Bullet Theory in the JFK assasination so he should fit right in with his new buddies warped thinking!!

Ultra - I agree that he's a douche and has no place in the GOP, but now the Senate is one step closer to invoking cloture and we may have a lot more union shops popping up thanks to card check. If that happens, the unemployment rate WILL rise.

Edit: Franken needs to win too for cloture.

Ultra,you do realize if Franken gets the seat the Dems will have a super majority?

I may be a left leaner, but i still believe we need checks and balances in our gov't.

I belive if we have a dem Pres we need a repub congress and senate and vice versa......

I disagree Rock, ALL of these bozos in Washington need to go, regardless of party...Our checks and balance system is laughable at best, what we need is a VIABLE third party (not a third party led by a douche like Ross Parot) what we are seeing now is nothing new from when the repubs had control of both houses and the white house...I believe this whole "party" system of ours has been corrupt since 1776!!!!

That works in theory but in reality NOTHING gets done when a repub is in the white house with a dem congress and vice versa...all that gets done is a bunch of finger pointing..."it was this party or that parties fault" and most of the people in this country are dumb enough to fall for it....I'd bet our career politicians in wash are just loving this!!!

Rock is correct on this one 100% Last time there was not an opposite congress was Reagan and we spent like no tomorrow. Now with all liberals we will lose all our right and money like no tomorrow. Any check, corrupt or not, is better than our current situation with mostly liberals and even if every other vote was a no you still lose to them.

Never actually had control 51-49 percent split is not voting control. In Reagans era Republicans Owned Congress just like now Democrats Own Congress.
