Arlen Specter (before party switch) Olympia Snowe & Susan Collins voted for it, & many Republicans lined up for stimulus money.
10 Years ago, slurs like 'moderate' & 'RINO' meant sens like Arlen Specter, Olympia Snowe & (that one, yes).
The five Republican Senators who voted against conviction on both charges were John Chafee of Rhode Island, Susan Collins of Maine, Jim Jeffords of Vermont, Olympia Snowe of Maine, and Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania. The additional five Republican Senators who voted "not guilty" only on the perjury charge were Slade Gorton of Washington, Richard Shelby of Alabama, Ted Stevens of Alaska, Fred Thompson of Tennessee, and John Warner of Virginia.
Just had to share this truth from Robert...I agree the Republican Party isn't the GOP anymore. Robert Shepherd shared Occupy Democrats's photo. Head in the sand? Some Republicans woke up. (I was one) Yes, I am a lifelong Republican, but now vote all Democrat. Have I shifted liberal? Hey even Sarah Palin blasted the male chauvinists and rape-excusers. They have driven out Olympia Snowe and Jim Jeffords and Richard Lugar and Jim Leach and the late Arlen Specter. And just look at all the former Republicans who now went for Obama, Colin Powell and Larry Pressler and Charlie Crist of Florida, Ron Reagan, Lincoln Chafee and Chuck Hagel, Ray Lahood and Robert Gates. Then there's Ed Rendell and the evangelical Frank Schaeffer. Bob Dole said not even REAGAN himself would make it into today's Republican Party. Jon Huntsman said Republicans had better change or they'll be extinct. Republican governor Bobby Jindal said he wishes the Republicans would quit being the party of stupid. Personally, I wish they would pass ...
John Mccain was a mistake, Mitt Romney was a mistake, Bob Dole was a mistake, Arlen Specter was a mistake, Jim Jeffords was a mistake, Lincoln Chafee was a mistake, Kelly Ayotte was a mistake, Bob Corker was a mistake, Charlie Crist was a mistake, Lisa Murkowski was a mistake, Olympia Snowe was a mistake, Susan Collins was a mistake, Kay Bailey Hutchison was a mistake, Roy Blunt was a mistake, Jerry Moran was a mistake, Saxby Chambliss was a mistake, Elizabeth Dole was a mistake, Lamar Alexander was a mistake, Lindsey Graham was a mistake, Mitch Mcconnell was a mistake, Orrin Hatch was a mistake. I could go on...and on...and on.
2 of the 7 types of politicians follow. For the other 5 click on the article. REPUBLICAN Libtards: The Liberal Democrat in Disguise. You will typically find these ‘Yankee’ types in the North East. They are essentially the same as The Ignorant Do Gooder Libtard, with the only difference being that they are members of the Republican Party instead. These self righteous Political Puritans see it as their noble calling to water down the “extremism” of the Southern and Western Republicans. Examples: Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Mike Bloomberg, Arlen Specter (deceased), Scott Brown, Chris Christie REPUBLICAN Moderates: The Gutless, Spineless, Supine “Moderate.” Very similar to the Careerist, the “Moderate” is driven by fear of the liberal news media. He may actually be quite conservative at heart, but the minute The New York Times or Washington Post fires a few warning shots over any given issue, the “moderate” instantly soils his panties, caves in, bends over and begs to cut a deal with ...
There was a time not that long ago when I really liked some of the moderate Republicans - especially in the US Senate - Senators like Olympia Snowe, Lincoln Chaffe, McCain (the more moderate version), Bennett (from Idaho), Arlen Specter (before he was a Democrat); and others - they had a moderating influence on the Democratic Party and could be worked with to acheive great things that the "middle" of this country want - (most voters are in the middle) - but all of those Republicans have either quit, switched parties, retired or turned hard right to stay elected. The Congress has a 10% approval rating! I don't think they are a representative body any longer of most of the American voters.
Who's who on the voting? In the House of Representatives, 2 Republicans voted yea: Ed Whitfield (KY), Don Young (AK); 4 Democrats voted nay (should be "neigh because they are each a horse's *** : Travis Childers (MS), Don Boren (OK), Allen Boyd (FL), and Bobby Bright (AL). In the Senate, all Democrats, the 2 independents , and 5 Republicans voted yea. The 5 Republican who voted yea are: Arlen Specter (PA), Kay Bailey Hutchinson (TX), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Susan Collins (ME) and Olympia Snowe (ME).
No one should ever forget this. Thanks to Arlen Specter and senators. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, the GOP wasn't able to block the 2009 stimulus, and saved this country from going into a deep Depression. I firmly believe that. Those three senators personified profiles in courage by going against their party for the better of the nation. RIP Arlen Specter
Remember Dwight Eisenhower, Nelson Rockefeller, Jacob Javits, Mark Hatfield, Olympia Snowe, Lincoln Chafee, Norm Coleman, Gordon Smith, Ted Stevens, Pete Domenici, Arlen Specter and Richard Lugar? They were the respected stalwarts of the GOP whether or not we agreed with them on any given issue. What happened to their legacy? How did the Republican Party morph into the cacophony of the voices of Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, Michelle Bachmann, Darrel Issa. Peter King, Jan Brewer, Jim DeMint, Eric Cantor, Todd Akin, Joe Arpaio, Grover Norquist and Rush Limbaugh? Most savvy pundits agree that even Ronald Regan, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, George Romney and the first President Bush would not be welcomed candidates by current party criteria. The American public would be better served by a healthy two-party government working together for them. Barring an unforeseen calamity, President Obama is likely to be re-elected. Despite the demonizing rhetoric to the contrary, he is a moderate centrist in many ways simil ...
In 2009, the modern Tea Party movement got underway shortly after President Barack Obama took office and he and House Democrats subsequently passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 without a single Republican vote. The stimulus act became law in February after three Senate Republicans -- Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania (who has since become a Democrat) and Maine Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins -- crossed party lines and voted in favor of it. The lack of bipartisanship outraged many conservatives and even a few moderates who saw the $787 billion "emergency" expenditure as a demonstration of wasteful spending and an egregious growth of government
Here is something for those who may be tempted to believe that Mitt and the GOP somehow support women more than does Obama, just because the GOP and Mitt say so: "The Senate voted 72 to 23 to invoke cloture on S. 181 on January 15, 2009. (The vote to invoke cloture ends debate on a bill, and usually leads to a final vote within a few days.) The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act passed the Senate, 61-36, on January 22, 2009. The votes in favor included every Democratic senator (except Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, who was absent from the vote because of health issues), two independents who caucused with Democrats, and five Republican Senators - Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine, Kay Bailey Hutchinson of Texas, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Specter later switch to the Democrats; the others include all female Republican Senators."
I'd go for Arlen Specter about as soon as I'd vote for Olympia Snowe. Which is pretty much never.
