Here you go- jeez, there are hundreds! Be sure to check the keyword index for more.
Time to Bork Arlen for the rest of his last time in congress. Keep watch on him day and night. He claims conservatism but only around election time! Make sure his last term in the Senate is Conservative.
Thanks Backhoe, for all the links. They were well needed. I just posted the link to sign the petition against Specter which will be taken to D.C. Thursday. We also have an event on Monday in NY where Senators Santorum and Frist will be speaking and in D.C. on Wednesday. Could everyone link to the petition, sign and pass it on. Thanks all.
You couldn't be more correct.
Thanks for looking.
THANK YOU backhoe!! At my request, backhoe has gathered all the Specter links for us in one spot. Thank you again backhoe - you're always there for us!
There are too may specter threads for this chick.
However, I will post this info from Townhall.
Not sure if it is the latest info.
Please continue to call and email the GOP on Specter.

The Senate Republican leadership is considering a two-year waiver to delay Sen. Orrin Hatch's removal as Judiciary Committee chairman because of term limits, thereby forestalling Sen. Arlen Specter's succession to the post.
Specter has almost entirely backed down from his exuberant post-election comments warning President Bush that no foe of the Roe v. Wade abortion decision would be confirmed for the Supreme Court. Nevertheless, pro-life activists and other conservatives still suspect what course Specter would take as chairman and want to keep him out of that position.
An argument for giving Hatch a waiver is the fact that while facing re-election in Utah in 2006, he would have no committee chairmanship or even a subcommittee chairmanship despite advanced seniority in the Senate. Although Hatch and Specter have had their differences in the past, Hatch has publicly supported Specter as his replacement.
If anybody has any other ideas, please post.
