Lost in the chatter about Specter’s party-switching is the elephant in the bathtub, which is they way his move is being sold in many outlets. For example, the first I saw said “Specter switch gives Democrats 60-seat filibuster-proof majority”.
No, it doesn’t. His move didn’t change any of his votes, past, present or future. His move was because of the way he votes. The Dems may now have the numbers but, on many things, be it the filibuster-bust in the Senate or in the House on key issues (like their cap-and-trade rationing/tax scheme), they still don’t have the votes to simply work Pres. Obama’s will.
The ladies from Maine could follow, and it still wouldn’t change the lack of a 60-vote filibuster-proof majority on those issues where none exists. One is not the same as the other.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
