...screwing over those who helped him.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">President Barack Obama says he loves Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) — just not quite enough to hazard an 11th-hour political trip to Pennsylvania for an ally of convenience increasingly viewed as unlikely to win.

Just last year, the White House was crowing about Specter’s conversion to the Democratic Party, and <span style='font-size: 17pt'>Obama pledged, “He will have my full support. . .”</span> ...

In close to a dozen contests, Obama’s intervention hasn’t paid dividends — whether in picking winners in a party squabble like Pennsylvania, recruiting candidates for targeted seats, or on the stump in the final days of close contests in Massachusetts, Virginia and New Jersey.

Some candidates don’t want Obama. Others, like Specter, want him — but are deemed too shaky to risk Obama’s direct involvement. ...

Specter’s campaign tried to woo Obama to the city as late as last week. But the White House politely rebuffed them several times, saying the president simply couldn’t carve out the time for a 45-minute flight north, according to people familiar with the situation. ...

And at the same time, many of the Dems are distancing themselves from Obama. In the current anit-incumbent environment, an endorsement from Washington leadership can be viewed as the kiss of death.

Jeremiah Wright now says dearest leader threw him under the bus as well.

I'm no fan of Wright or Spector ... but the way the regime casts aside people who have been loyal is simply horrible.

It speaks to his general personality. He expects/demands loyalty to him, but seems to have no loyalty to anyone (including the country)

Well, the results are in, and Spector is out.
Yesterday's primarys have put a huge cloud over the Dems in Washington, and to a lesser degree, over incumbent Reps.

Any thoughts on the results in KY?

Libertarianism, specifically a return to the rule of law specified by the COTUS, is spreading like wildfire.
