No matter how much you may not like Obama, or Bob Dole for that matter, I wouldn’t trust a single thing that Arlen Specter says. Why would anyone put stock in what this backstabbing opportunist writes?
Former Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) writes in a new book that President Obama ditched him in the 2010 election after he helped Obama win the biggest legislative victory of his term by passing healthcare reform.
Specter also claims that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) did not uphold his promise to grant him seniority accrued over 28 years of service in the Senate as a Republican.
“How dare President Obama and Harry Reid reward my disloyalty with broken promises!”
He makes surprising revelations about Republican leaders, as well — he writes that former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) told him that he would have made the same decision to defect from the GOP if he had been in Specter’s position.
Right. I’m sure Dole, former GOP presidential nominee and majority leader would have…switched parties to help Obama. Ok, Arlen.
