Specter Pisses on Kemp’s Grave
“Well, I was sorry to disappoint many people. Frankly, I was disappointed that the Republican Party didn’t want me as their candidate,” Mr. Specter said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “But as a matter of principle, I’m becoming much more comfortable with the Democrats’ approach. And one of the items that I’m working on, Bob, is funding for medical research.”
Mr. Specter continued: “If we had pursued what President Nixon declared in 1970 as the war on cancer, we would have cured many strains. I think Jack Kemp would be alive today. And that research has saved or prolonged many lives, including mine.”
You gotta be kidding me.
There’s a reason good people don’t like Senator Independent-Minded and this is it. He’s got no respect for anything other than his own ambition. Which is why he thinks it’s just peachy to exploit Kemp’s death before his body is even in the ground.
This fits perfectly with his new party. It’s unverifiable speculation whether more cancer spending would have prolonged Kemp’s life. And it doesn’t make a lick of sense. Does Specter think that there is no interest in curing cancer unless the federal government spends money on it? Is he retarded?
