One year later, Obama uses same lines for Sestak as he did for Specter

September 15, 2009

Now, I want to say a few things about Arlen Specter. Arlen is not someone who came to Washington to fight for a particular ideology. He came to fight for the working men and women of Pennsylvania. And he has a long and successful record of doing just that.

September 22, 2010

On the one hand, we have a candidate in Joe Sestak who is not a career politician.  Everybody has been talking about insiders in Washington.  Well, Joe is not one of the insiders who’s been part of the problem.  Instead, he’s been solving problems in Washington.  (Applause.)  He didn’t go there with a liberal agenda or a conservative agenda.  He went to serve the people of Pennsylvania, just like he’s served his country for the last three decades.  (Applause.)
