Senator "Neville" Specter
Our good buddy, Sen. Neville Chamberlain Specter (R-PA) is building consensus. His quote on looking for a compromise on the immigration issue" 'What we're looking for is a middle ground, something that will appeal to a broader base" in the Republican Party" perhaps needs some translation: "Screw you conservatives, screw principles,screw security, screw integrity, as I ever had any, screw what Americans think. I got re-elected. So, SCREW YOU!!!" I think might be a fairly accurate portrayl of what the august Senator from Pennsylvania is attempting to say to the American citizen (REAL American citizen BTW).
And we had an opportunity to get rid of this guy two years ago.Remember Rep. Pat Twoomey? The real Republican, the real conservative that challenged Specter. And that GWB supported Specter over Twoomey and actively campaigned for Specter?
Specter. If ever there was an appropriate name.
Lady Thatcher on consensus:"To me, consensus seems to be the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies. So it is something in which no one believes and to which no one objects." "I am not a consensus politician. I am a conviction politician."
A great site for great quotes from Lady Thatcher.
