George Stephanopoulos has a quote from Arlen Specter that illustrates how out of touch he is:
“I think we have to bear in mind, that although those people need to be heard and have a right to be heard, that they are not really representative of America in my opinion...We have to be careful here not to let those town meetings make the scene that influences what we do on health policy.”
Maybe this explains why Toomey is now leading Specter by 12 points in the polls.
If Specter doesn't think that the town halls are representative of America, he is truly clueless. Americans have huge concerns over ObamaCare. Huge. Rasmussen's latest poll has 54% of Americans saying that no reform at all is better than ObamaCare.
Specter seems to be following Obama's theorem that people just need to "get outta the way and not do a lot of talkin'."
I have two words for Mr. Specter. Sleeping Giant.
