Online video makes it a little bit easier to hold a politician’s words against him or her. Sometimes campaigns employ “truth squads” to follow their opponents around, recording their speeches, hoping for some embarrassing sound bit.
The folks at Pat Toomey’s Senate campaign didn’t even have to go that far. Today, they released a video demonstrating Senator Arlen Specter’s changing rhetoric on his allegiance to the majority party in the Senate. Notably, all of these are on national programs – underscoring the distance Sen. Specter has established between himself and Pennsylvanians.
