Well today it looks like the GOP will back SPECTER for Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Specter is to publicly announce (see related threads on FR) that he will not block a nomination based ona proposed Judge's stanc on abortion. No mention of Specter backing strict Constitutional Constructionists, not activists. IMHO, Specter will find another reason to Bork a proposed judge.
Tom DeLay was given a pass by the GOP, today. (Check the news for specifics)
The GOP is also in the process of knocking out the requirement to label foreign grown fruits, etc., as to country of origin. It is believed Americans will favor home grown fruits and vegies. Therefor, the GOP is screwing the American Public and American Farmers.
In view of the GOP actions, we need to document the GOP actions. We need to wake them up and to do what is right and in accord with the American values on which they rode to victory. (NO I do not like the DEMS; I will quit this when the GOP wakes up)
Pat Buchanan is right, an ideological civil war is shaping up in the GOP. The battle lines are being drawn now.
What's your problem with Tom Delay, bub? He's not in trouble. He hasn't been indicted for anything, nor even charged with anything.
Buchanan is not in the GOP. He left the party in 2000. Nobody gives a rat's ass what he says.
No he hasn't been indicted, but why change the rules for him?
Delivered by an A$$hole.
LOL! What's that ugly thing attached beneath it?
Why not, that is as bright as saying why have rules?
It's probably better to have Specter inside the tent pi$$ing out than outside pi$$ing in -- provided he swears fealty to Bush on the nominees.
I also am infuriated at their increasing the DEBT ceiling!
The RNC had best tread very carefully....
In this case the Democrats are playing a dirty trick and DeLay does need to be protected.
Nice lookin' turd... ;)
I agree, but as you can see some GOP stuges are already here. Perhaps we can push the conservative agenda!
Frankly, I don't buy tomatoes imported from Mexico, if I know where they come from. I don't like being fed foods from countries that use less than acceptable agricultural methods. You folks want to eat veggies grown in human fecal waste, harvested by workers immune to diseases that we are not immune to and treating the produce with less than acceptable handling techniques? I don't. I spit on the GOP move to take away some of my ability to make informed decisions regarding my foods. Anyone remember the recent baterial illness outbreaks due to imported foods? You won't be able to deal with future ones by switching sources because you won't know one from another! Nanny state will have you at their mercy.
I heard Tony Snow say that the conservative senators have Specter right where they want him and he (Specter) is backed against the wall now if he is the chairman.
According to Snow, Arlen knows he can quickly become yesterday's news if he doesn't toe the line that has been quietly and invisibly drawn and will indeed be replaced.
Therefore, Snow believes that conservatives may get a very cooperative Specter if we get him at all.
Let's give it a chance before we jump over the cliff.
