President Obama and Vice President Biden publicly welcomed Sen. Arlen Specter to the Democratic Party Wednesday, calling him a man of "immense personal courage" and "unmatched integrity."
"Arlen Specter is one tough hombre," Obama said during a morning news conference Wednesday inside the White House.
"I don't expect Arlen to be a rubber stamp," he added.
I have figured out that when Obama starts using "folksy" terms to describe someone, they become mere stooges in his plan for world domination. After all, didn't he say of Biden that around the White House, they call him "the Sheriff?"
Yeah, well, and the voters of Pennsylvania didn't expect Arlen to be a traitor, either.
