Grover Norquist Sees Silver Lining in Specter Switch

Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist tells me that Sen. Arlen Specter’s party switch is not a total disaster because “the most important issue before Congress is EFCA, and his restatement of his commitment to oppose it is very important. It’s the one silver lining in this decision.”

Indeed, in his statement, Specter ruled out revisiting his opposition to the Employee Free Choice Act.

“The most important issue before Congress is EFCA.” Is Norquist a moron?

Republicans have managed to PUSH the Senator to the other sides. If they don't watch it, they'll push Maine's two Senators over, too. OsiSpeaks.com

A democrat that hates working people?
The Republicans can keep him for all I care.
He's sure to be more trouble than he's worth.
Just like the so-called Conservadems.

Let the purge begin. Rhinos don't deserve the proud moniker of being a republican.
