Arlen Specter Makes No Sense

In case you think we're overly harsh on President Obama, his cabinet and Democrats generally, here's a little equal opportunity bashing, this time on Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA). Asked by CNN to defend his vote on Obama's stimulus plan he said (emphasis mine):
"I understand the peril, but I didn't run for the United States Senate to further my own political interests," Sen. Arlen Specter said on CNN's American Morning. "I think when you have a decision like the one that we're facing now, there's only one way to respond, and that's to respond with action."
Doesn't running for office by definition mean Specter is furthering his political interests?

These are the people in charge? Yikes.

Sen. Spector's statement also fails to understand that sometimes the best course of action is, in fact, inaction.
