Which is ok since he actually switched years ago. Many on the left are claiming that the GOP is in trouble and that people are leaving in droves. I would say some of this is correct but not for the reasons the Left would like. Many are going Libertarian as they tire of both parties and see no difference in the parties elected officials. You see, Specter feels he has a better shot at re-election as a Democrat. So much for values…
I noticed yesterday that White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs stated:
"I want to be very clear here: There is a team in place. Part of it is standing behind me, and part of it working as we speak to identify exactly what [Besser] and others have talked about," Gibbs said. "This notion that somehow that if there is not currently a secretary, that there is not the function that needs to take place to prepare for either this or any other situation is just simply not the case.
"I think it’s all hands on deck, and we’re doing fine."
So why do we need these positions then? Just asking….
