After it became crystal clear that Arlen Specter didn’t have a shot at beating Pat Toomey in the GOP primary, Specter turned faster to the Democrats than Obama looking for his teleprompter at an impromptu event. I didn’t put a post up on Specter’s jump, because, honestly, it doesn’t matter much to me. Everyone knows I was going to do my damnedest for Pat no matter what no matter what Specter did. Pat is exactly what this state and this nation needs. I’m excited to be helping him in his bid for the Senate.
However, I will find it very satisfying if Specter loses to Joe Sestak in the Democratic primary, it will be a slap in the face for both Specter, who somehow fees as if he’s entitled to seat in the Senate, and to Obama, who now has Specter following him around like a puppy dog. If I were a Pennsylvania Democrat, I’d be mighty angry at Obama and Specter for trying to impose their will upon me. However, I’m not a statist. I’m a fiscal conservative who wants this nation to return to capitalism, individual freedom, strong national defense, and the right to self determination.
Pat’s a realist and he knows how to make things work, he’s practical, highly articulate, and extremely intelligent. He values individual rights and personal freedoms and he strongly believes in your right to make your own decisions in your personal life and to stop government from interfering. He will fight to reel in government spending, lower taxes, control inflation rates, help you keep more of what you earn, and lower the unemployment rate. Pat will be able to portray his positive message of growth and freedom and he will handily win the US Senate seat in 2010.
In a very short period of time, Pat has closed a 20 point gap in the proposed general election race between himself and Specter. The gap is now at 9% between he and Specter and Pat hasn’t even started yet. Even before Pat announced, Specter was running TV ads attempting to smear Pat with false allegations.
I am fortunate enough to have had Pat as my Congressmen for two terms and to follow him as a member of the Club for Growth. I had the opportunity to speak with him before and believe me when I tell you that he is a genuine person, very approachable, honest, and open. I also had the opportunity to hear him give a speech. His public speaking skills are impeccable.
