Arlen Specter ~ Cantankerous Sexist Anyone?

By
Real Estate Agent


Congresswoman  Barbara Bachmann, appearing on conservative talker Dom Giordano's radio show in Philadelphia seems to have received some ungentlemanly treatment by Arlen Specter.  You can hear the radio audio and read the full article here.

 

Arlen Specter

 

 

 

"Now wait a minute. I'll stop and you can talk," Specter said. "I'll treat you like a lady. So act like one." 

 "I am a lady," Bachmann replied.



More than once he made a snide remark to her during the interview.  Personally I find his treatment of Bachmann offensive. Often politicians talk over each other during interviews.  What would Arlen have said if his opponent was a man?

This summer Arlen was less than receptive to citizens during a Town Hall meeting.  Perhaps Arlen's cantankerous behavior has worn sufficiently thin.  He has become more and more abrasive of late and out of touch.

I really want to see him go down.  Switching parties so he could get re-elected what a joke.  We need term limits more than ever.

John,  He really angered me with his conduct at the town hall meetings.  He is one - because of his flip flopping can't be trusted.

Well - this is the change we can believe in! Liberal men speaking to conservative women with contempt - not one woman's liber ever called him out on this!

Bonnie, I was expecting Arlen to order Congresswoman Michele Bachman to go home and stay there.

Yolanda,  He can be quite nasty.  I thought for sure he was going to say worse to her.

Michelle Bachman made him look like the fool that he was.  She acted like a lady and was polite, and he was being a chauvanistic ass.  I would be embarrassed if he was my representative.

Bob,  I'm embarrassed that he is a legislator period.  Bachmann kept her cool and allowed him to rant.  Let the public decide how to handle Arlen in the next election.  I'm guessing he will be history.

Arlen Spector is a complete joke. I can't see how he will pass another election with any kind of success.

I think most folks are ready to put him out to pasture.
