As many Republicans are publicly fuming over this latest slap in the face with the expected spin, I just wonder if any have seriously listened and considered the Senator’s message in his statement. It’s more than just an ambition to hold on to a seat, listen to what he’s telling you before you start calling him names and degrading his decision.
I know you’re mad and things aren’t looking so good right now. The President is Black, very smart or ‘uppity’ as some may say privately, popular or likable, and the whole torture thing comes out and you’re scrambling for political cover, it’s hard out here for a Republican. Only 21% of the country even want to be seen with you and that 21% are mostly the fringe group of the party, Texas talking about leaving the union, but request federal assistance. You’re viewed as the Party of No, just do a Google search and see what you come up with. Rush Limbaugh takes over the party, then Newt Gingrich, then Dick Cheney and the lone Black guy, Michael Stelle t-bagging Rush on-air to satisfy the base, the growing fringe group that’s becoming. You come out with a plan with no numbers, then follow it up with stuff proven by economist to be ill fated, more and more Moderate Republicans are wisely resisting the extremism of the party. Then Sen. Arlen Spector decides to switch parties. Giving the Democrats 60 votes, oooo that had to of hurt. If you think Sen. Spector is the only one to leave I say be careful, make a change now.
I think you can do change. Yes You Can.
