    Sounds like the politically expedient thing to do. Same calculation Arlen Specter made.

    I don't really lend much stock to your predictions/analysis, so good for them.

    Without reading the article, my initial reaction is, what an assclown, and what's the difference? He must be polling bad in his district or something.

    Or, as a former Oncologist, feels strongly that the healthcare bill is bad for his former profession. Either way, it will be interesting to find out his motivation, and to see if any other domino's fall. There are alot of congressmen who have a large majority of constituents very angry with them right now.

    If your party keeps up heir sh1t it will become just a small but vocal minority like the gay and lesbian movement in this country.

    Guess the guy can read the polls, and understands he will lose his district. Pols first instinct is survival. Wonder if the guy has any real principles.

    Probably because he was always questioning the neo-con establishment here to much. He was a real pain in the azz to a lot of posters here, they couldn't beat him so they banned him. The highest form of praise

    Press Cover is probably a good guy but he was a "personal attacker and name caller" he started with me a long time ago so i just started singing to him and writing poetry that got him mad so then he just ignored me, this is how I got rid of him,
    he was always calling me a racist I answered by telling him that Humming Birds come to Maine on May 8th and leave on the 12th of September, he put me on ignore...........:singing:

    I've lurked here much longer then I've been a member. I know how he was and I didn't have much of a problem with him unless he was making personal attacks. Seems he went too far on someone. I just missed it.

    No matter, if TPTB here wanted us to know, they would have told us. I highly doubt any one mod could ban anyone with out at least some review of others. I'm sure most things are a team effort with some checks and balance.

    If not, it's wrong.

    Sorry for the thread derail.

    Back on topic. I never like when polititions change sides mid term. While I can understand why it happens, I think they do not represent who and why they got elected in the first place. This one may be a little different from some I've seen in the past. Most of his base is conservative and as others have mentioned, Next Nov is looming large. It still does not make it right IMHO. Run and serve as elected. Wait till the next election and then you can change. :confused2:

    Your liberals are experts at censorship. Unfortunately, i was a victim because you censored my posts last year.

    I couldn't believe that i had to ask for your 'permission' before my post and thread could show up here. What a load of sh!t!

    When are you going to drop your BS ? You want to play a game but you don't want to loose. I don't see how it happens when you are no good.
