Arlen Specter's Website Looked A Lot Like Mitt Romney's

Mitt Romney has attacked Rick Santorum for his previous endorsement of Republican-turned-Democrat Arlen Specter in 2004 over the more conservative Pat Toomey. But Specter, who today was called a "liberal" in a Romney for President ad, looked a lot more like Mitt Romney than Rick Santorum on the issues page of his own website. Specter's positions below — with the exception of an NRA endorsement Specter got and Romney didn't — are drawn from 2010, when Specter ran as a Democrat. (Via the Internet Archive.)
