GOP Profile in How to Lose More Senate Seats

GOP Senators Specter and Collins caved on the spending bill.

The big canard from the media is that the GOP lost control of Congress because they were "too conservative." The truth is that Republican voters don't like wasteful spending and higher taxes. But some politicians are gullible enough to believe their Democrat and media opponents, so they try to be Democrat-lite. My guess is that by voting for this abomination, Specter and Collins will soon be voted out of Congress because of their irresponsibility. GOP voters are fed up with these Democrat-lite politicians and if a Democrat campaigns on fiscal responsibility, he will win (even if the claim is laughable).
