I think is one of the things politicians do to delude themselves. They tell that supporting their particular pet project is somehow beneficial for the nation as a whole.
One the vile thing about democrats in general,, and B.J. Clinton in particular, was their willingness to stand on still warm corpses to attempt to make political points. The dust has not settled over Oklahoma City before Clinton blamed the bombing in talk radio. The bodies were still warm in Columbine, when Clinton used the tragedy to campaign for yet more gun control. Jack Kemp died on Saturday, and Specter using Kemp corpse has political soapbox. The democrat Arlen Specter does a Clinton: Specter to Bob Schieffer, as attributed by Tom LoBianco, Washington Times :
“If we had pursued what President Nixon declared in 1970 as the war on cancer, we would have cured many strains. I think Jack Kemp would be alive today. And that research has saved or prolonged many lives, including mine.”
I want a rebate on any of my tax dollars that were sued to save the worthless turd Specter. When Teddy Kennedy dies of brain cancer, will Specter denounce democrat priorities on health care?
“Cured cancer”, I just love Specter blind optimism that any problem can be solved if but we spend enough tax payer money. Just like Specter’s fellow ‘rat, Lyndon Johnson’s “War on Poverty” eradicated it.
In the spirit of going green, I give you Moe Lane :
[Specter has]certainly picked up from them the trick of using safely dead people to push a partisan talking point. Jack Kemp isn’t even buried yet; and he had nothing to do with the current political situation, you disgusting piece of partisan slime. I don’t expect truly civilized behavior from you anymore, but I did foolishly think that you could be trusted to show more delicacy than a hyena at the passing of a former friend
Picking up tricks? That what twenty buck whores d. Then, Specter hasn’t worked up to level of street walker yet.
