Sen. John Cornyn is not happy.Neither is RNC chair Michael Steele

The head of the NRSC is not happy with Sen. Arlen Specter's switch to Democrat today (although to all of us out here, this is only acknowledging a long time fact):

“Senator Specter’s decision today represents the height of political self-preservation. While this presents a short-term disappointment, voters next year will have a clear choice to cast their ballots for a potentially unbridled Democrat super-majority versus the system of checks-and-balances that Americans deserve.”

Republican National Chairman Michael Steele:

Some in the Republican Party are happy about this. I am not.

Let’s be honest-Senator Specter didn’t leave the GOP based on principles of any kind. He left to further his personal political interests because he knew that he was going to lose a Republican primary due to his left-wing voting record.

Republicans look forward to beating Sen. Specter in 2010, assuming the Democrats don’t do it first.
