Specter Really Doesn’t Get It, or Maybe He Doesn’t Want To

My Flag Flies Everyday

I watched Arlen Specter’s town hall meeting yesterday, beginning to end. I was proud of my fellow Americans who came well prepared. They knew the contents of the proposed health care bill. Most of those asking questions were citing paragraphs by number. Specter categorically did not have a clue as to what they were talking about.  Out of twenty plus questions, Arlen was eloquent on one that he  was prepared for. Most of his answers were terse, and flip. He showed an arrogance by continuously looking at his watch. On one question, the man literally ran away from the questioner; distancing himself as much as possible.  The meeting was not raucous, it was rather polite. The questions were all about legitimate concerns, and well phrased. There was no finger pointing or shouting down. Many questions evoked a standing ovation from the crowd. Out of a room full of people, only one made a positive statement on the need for reform, the remaining questions concerned cost, care rationing, complicated language in the bill, and  discontent about representatives who are not listening to their constituancy.

Today, I watched a sound clip of Arlen Specter answering a question put to him from Harry Reasoner.  I couldn’t believe my ears. Specter denounced protesters as not typical Americans.  What I saw being vented by the people  was  the same frustration that I feel. It is the same frustration felt by all of the people attending Tea Parties, and town hall meetings. I guess I’m not a typical American.

No I’m not. I am a frustrated old man who sees his great country going down the toilet by the likes of our own representatives who are not listening. They absolutely do not get it.

Here is my proposal. If the people of Pennsylvania elect this guy Specter again, the state deserves to be leased to North Korea and Iran as a Nuclear test site.
