Sestak: Can’t Spot a Flaming Liberal
Sestak, speaking at the Pennsylvania Press Club, was asked whether he believes Speaker of the House Pelosi is a liberal or a pragmatist. Sestak describes himself as the latter.
He said he didn’t know, but also said he never looks at her voting record.
Even Joe Sestak admits he is a true-blue liberal, telling radio host R.J. Harris only five minutes later: “I absolutely do say I’m a progressive.”
“Joe Sestak criticizes Arlen Specter’s party switch, but Joe is attempting an identity switch of his own,” said Toomey Communications Director Nachama Soloveichik. “By any objective measure, Joe Sestak has one of the most fiscally liberal voting records in Congress. Only someone like Joe, who has voted with Nancy Pelosi 100% of the time, would think record deficits, trillion dollar bailouts, and massive government health care programs are fiscally conservative. Pennsylvanians know better.”
