    and this time, he is going after Obama and his hypocrisy!!!

    Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA), now the Senate Judiciary’s ranking minority member, asserted to us in an exclusive interview, that although as a learned attorney he remains obliged to see "how it plays out," that "it may well be worthwhile" to hold Congressional hearings on the Democrats’ refusal to seat Florida and Michigan at the Democratic National Convention. "It’s certainly something I want to consider," said Specter, ruefully hinting things might be different if he was still the Judiciary Chairman. "The essence of democracy is the right to vote," asserted Specter, the Democrat’s contemplation of not seating Florida and Michigan may constitute a fundamental violation of democratic principles. He believes that the Congress must act "very promptly."

    Specter emphasized while Republicans are striking bold initiatives such as GOP onDemand™ to promote full voter inclusiveness, the Democrats’ direction in the opposite direction is more than paradoxical, it is "hypocrisy." "They are preaching one thing and practicing another" angrily complained the former prosecutor, who long fought the legendary Philadelphia Democratic machine’s ghost voting and other voter frauds.

    While observing there is "great frustration and anger" among his Senate colleagues, Specter’s own disbelief over Obama’s disingenuous media manipulations was self-evident as we heard him literally swearing as he was hanging up the phone. I have observed Specter for 33 years. His strenuous objections are not political positioning for TV cameras, but are at heart of his — and any civic minded citizen’s — core beliefs of what is America. To anyone who has served his country, it is incongruous to even think such an alien idea.

    If Spector were a horse, it'd be time to for him to visit the glue factory.

    One might, but it doesn't matter, he's up this year and not running again. Or is it..10...whichever, he's done soon.

    Thankfully.

    There is no way in G-d's green earth that the US Senate, controlled by Democrats will EVER hold hearings on seating the delegations from MI and FL. To be fair if a Democratic Senator wanted to investigate Republican primary actions in a Republican controlled Senate, they (Reps) would react the same way.....
