Skip to comments.Specter says Obama ditched him after he provided 60th vote to pass health reform

Former Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) writes in a new book that President Obama ditched him in the 2010 election after he helped Obama win the biggest legislative victory of his term by passing healthcare reform.
Specter also claims that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) did not uphold his promise to grant him seniority accrued over 28 years of service in the Senate as a Republican.
Specter, who rocked Washingtons political establishment and made headlines around the country when he left the Republican Party to join Democrats in April of 2009, has kept quiet about these slights until now.
He makes surprising revelations about Republican leaders, as well he writes that former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) told him that he would have made the same decision to defect from the GOP if he had been in Specters position.
Specter says that one of Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnells (Ky.) first concerns after learning of the impending party switch was that he might be blamed for driving Specter out of the GOP.

People don’t usually date prostitutes.
Well I guess that is what Arleene gets for kissing muzzie butts.
So he went with the Democrats and then they screwed him over. He must be really stupid to act surprised about that.
Can Arlen Specter just please go away.
Poor thing. He should have known better.
I wonder if his book also has a chapter about how he is surprised every time Lucy pulls the football on Charlie Brown.
That gutless weasel has sold out more often than a discount store. And now that he’s been passed around like a cheap whore, he’s surprised that he’s not invited to the prom?
Hey, become a whore...get treated as a whore.
Lie down with dogs......
Rides in the wahhhmbulance aren’t covered under Obamacare.
Does Arlen say what he did with the 30 pieces of silver?
Well, Arlen and I have something in common. You see, General M’Buggaboo of Nigeria ditched me after I sent him $10,000 to pay some bribes that he said would enable him to deposit $100,000,000 in my savings account, with ten percent going to me as a reward for my honesty. I was really disillusioned, I can tell you.
All of the allegations made by former Sen. Specter (R-Scotland)? -> “Not proven.”
I’m sure Arlen can find some Scottish tort law to use to file a suit against the usurper-in-chief...
This is way smart prostitutes get paid up front.
I admittedly only scanned the article. Specter described double dealing among Senators and between Potus and political parties. Yawn.
His legacy, along with 59 other “senators” will be the enslavement of the American people through the Democrat Enabling Act, aka Obamacare. I forgive no one who voted to enslave me and future generations. D@mn every one of them to hell
There’s no fool like an old fool . He should no better than to believe a politician .
“He makes surprising revelations about Republican leaders, as well he writes that former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) told him that he would have made the same decision to defect from the GOP if he had been in Specters position.”
Oh, if only.
