Dont Reelect Incumbent Politicians
Analysis: Open season on political incumbents – CNN.com: So much for political kingmakers and the machine, at least in Kentucky and Pennsylvania. National and statewide political officials and operatives watched their chosen candidates fall Tuesday in two separate primaries with two different narratives weaved together by the common thread of anti-establishment.
YEAH! In Washington today, it’s the incumbents that are the problem. The party is irrelevant. We need to get the bums outta there, and it seems as thought the electorate is finally getting that message. Arlen Specter is a great example.
Republican-turned-Democratic Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania saw his 30-year career in the Senate come to an abrupt end at the hands of Rep. Joe Sestak despite being endorsed by President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell and just about every big-name Democrat.
Once thought to be invincible, he switched parties to ensure his re-election, and now he’s out on his ear. Nobody wants him. I say again… YEAH!
