    The Facts:

    --We've just won an overwhelming Pro-Family, Pro-Christian landslide in the Senate.
    --Senator Tom Daschle (D, SD), who led the obstruction of highly qualified Pro-Christian judges, was targeted and defeated.
    --The President has a mandate for his Pro-Family, Pro-Christian agenda based on receiving the largest popular vote in the nation's history.
    --Thanks to the spotlight being shined on out of control activist judges, some are starting to pause and think before they attempt to legislate from the bench.

    So why on earth is Senator Arlen Specter still in line to be the Chairman of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee?

    This is the same Senator Specter that has been a long time supporter of abortion.

    He even supports taxpayer-funded abortions!

    Senator Arlen Specter should be ashamed of himself. Without the support of President Bush he would have lost his senate seat in the primary.

    Instead of being grateful he rushed right out after the election to slap the President and every member of the Pro-Family movement in the face by suggesting that the President appoint only anti-abortion Supreme Court nominees!

    We have worked too long and too hard to advance the Pro-Family agenda to allow this one man who was on the cover of "National Review" magazine last year as the "Worst Republican Senator" to hold the fate of the entire judicial nominee process in his hands.

    We need your help to remove Senator Arlen Specter from the Judiciary Committee.

    Please Take A Moment And Sign Our Petition To
    Remove Arlen Specter from the Judiciary Committee

    Because pro-life Christians in Pennsylvania bowed to their idol named "GOP" and voted for him.

    My guess is that Bush will move more toward center during his new administration. I do not believe that he will cower to the activist pro-choice/abortion-on-demand crowd, nor will he compromise his 'true' convictions; however he will need to be able to bring both sides of the Senate together in order to seat judical nominations. Let's face it. Karl Rove estimated that 4,000,000 from the religious right didn't vote in 2000. They had to get out that vote. Does anyone know Karl Rove's religious convictions. I agree with the OP. Specter must not be Chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

    Is it ok to defend something by simply pointing out that someone else also did something wrong?

    If his convictions are reflected in his official agenda, I wouldn't look for much action. Abortion is not even included.

    I would urge each and one of you to contact both your Senators(if Republican) and Senator Frist and express your opinion. I already have.

    I wonder if the Pennsylvania voters who voted for Specter will be hypocritical enough to complain about him being chairman.

    Once again Debby just disapears without answering. Debby, if you can't successfully make a point of your position, you might consider changing it.

    52-48 is hardly a landslide.

    Daschle was about as centerist as they came, and rolled over to conservative pressure too often... I'm not that sad to see him go.

    In relation to the votes that went to the opposition, no; a couple of percentage points does not make a mandate.

    But you wouldn't complain if they started legislating what you wanted, would you?

    Because he's a rational human being?

    I agree with Debbie. Spector retains his position because he appeals to (some) Republicans and (some) Democratics. I'd be curious to know the breakdown.

    I personally haven't voted for him for 12 years, knowing his bent toward abortion among other things.

    Follow the link below to add your name to this petition by American Family Association to encourage another Chairman other than Spector.

    IMO, removal of Arlen Spector from the Judiciary committe is unrealistic. The prevention of his becoming the Chairman over the committee is possible.

    Senator Specter must not be allowed to become Judiciary Committee chairman.

    The real work has just begun, my fellow conservatives. We must strike while the iron is hot. Senator Frist must know from us that it is unacceptable to those of us who gave President Bush his re-election and the GOP a large increase in the Senate to have Arlen Specter as the chairman. It's all about judges for the next two years when it comes to the culture war to take America back from the secularists.

    Bush is backing Spector. He's going to be the chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

    Bush could change that with a phone call. But it isn't going to happen.

    If it's any consolation, that's what would have happened if Kerry won, too.

    No difference.

    They could add "Bush" to complete the triad.

    I have bad news, folks. I don't think anybody will care much about your petition. What counts is your vote. You cast that last Tuesday.

    But if they didn't vote for Spector, a democrat might have won.

    Yeah... they're addressing the real issue of Poverty, rather than social wedge issues.
