Petition to Ban Arlen Specter from the Republican Party
April 9, 2006 | new yorker 77

Posted on 04/09/2006 9:13:37 AM PDT by new yorker 77

I am sick of this dishonest media whore.

1) FAILURE TO EXPEDITE JUDICIAL NOMINATIONS

2) PROMOTING AMNESTY FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS

3) OPPOSING EXTENSION OF THE TAX CUTS

4) MORE PRO ABORTION THAN NARAL

5) SAYING THE TERRORIST SURVIELLANCE IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL

6) SAYING IMPEACHMENT IS ALWAYS AN OPTION

7) ALLOWING FOR A HEARING ON FEINGOLD'S CENSURE OF THE PRESIDENT

8) NOW CALLING FOR BUSH AND CHENEY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS ON LEAKS

Arlen Specter is a plague on this nation and the Republican Party.

This media whore needs to hear the message from conservatives nationwide.

I think Specter would sign this petition if he thought he could get some more camera time.

Specter does not run until 2010.

He is a plague until January 3, 2011.

Some Republican party leadership did not think Harriet Miers was bad. They also though this immigration deal was good.

We spoke up and guess who is winning.

Arlen Spector was Ira Einhorn's lawyer after Einhorn murdered Holly Maddux, stuffed her body into a trunk and left it in his apartment for 18 months.

Spector is a dimwit. Einhorn is scum who fled American law and lived the good life for years in France with the approval of the French government.

President Bush was using campaign tactics from his campaign team to win Pennsylvania in 2004 when he pushed for Specter.

His campaign team did not read Pennsylvania right and the President is paying for it with Specter's dishonesty.

As much as I despise Arlen Specter, I regret to inform you that there is no way to 'ban' anybody from a modern American political party.

Any American is free to register with any party they want, or to identify with any party they choose, and there is nothing anyone can do about it.

The only thing you can do is work to make sure that individuals you disapprove of don't win any kind of governmental or party office.

In Specter's case, he's there through 2010, short of the Lord shortening his term.

About the only useful thing you could do is put tremendous pressure on Republican Senators and leaders to take away the powerful chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee.

I'm afraid that is what is going to happen in our Republican primary. However, I haven't heard anything -- yet. In fact, I think DeWine is trying to distance himself from President Bush. A couple of conservatives are running against DeWine, and I am voting for one!

This petition is more of spotlight approach.

It would be like turning the lights on when a cockroach is in the room.

The beam of conservatism that would radiate on Specter will cause him to cower for a while.

He heard from us in the fall of 2004 when we pushed to prevent him from heading the judiciary committee.

He went on radio and television and LIED through his teeth to keep this position.

This is the last straw and I would like to force him to have to go on another rehab tour at the least.

Good lucke with your petition -- I mean it.

But also I mean this -- Serves the White House right. It's what they get for supporting Specter in the primary, over Toomey.

I mean is anyone surprised that Specter is behaving like this?
Hasn't he always?

The White House played political bingo in Pennsylvania.

The believed that in order to win the state on the Presidential Level, they needed to back an incumbent Republican running at the same time.

They were wrong.

I do not believe they supported Specter the man as much as they tried to use Specter the incumbent.

In the end, the have nothing but grief from this dishonest media whore.

Isn't a vote strong enough?

After all, by the time a petition was scrutinized, approved, sent through the channels, and submitted, it would be long after his next election cycle.

I don't think we should ban him from the party...I think we should throw all our weight behind his next primary challenger and a put a real Republican into that office.

I am in no mood to bash the President for backing Specter.

He did it because his campaign team was advising him to do so in order to win Pennsylvania.

If the President believed he needed to do this to win a state that would help him win re-election, I have less of a problem with it than otherwise.

The issue is Specter today. It requires leaving the fluffy land of hindsight and entering into the foward thinking field of ideas.

I will not let the 2004 campaign and my support for Toomey be used as an excuse not to get involved with knocking down the Specter stupidity of today.

Saying 'Bush supported him so he gets what he deserves' is moronic.

Specter does not deserve a free ride and the President does not deserve Specter's whoring it up on the Sunday talk shows.

They were wrong.

Without a "major" undoing on Spector's part, the MSM and DNC would have eaten Dubya' alive with diversion to this if he were to not support an incumbent.

After all it wasn't exactly a landslide for Dubya' in '04.

Why would the POTUS get involved in a concern that should have been resolved by the Pennsylvania Republican party?

This isn't a promotion of Spector on my part in the least, keep in mind!

You are exactly right. This kind of "petition" idea serves no purpose. Frankly, I'd rather have Specter the Repub in office than Specter the Dem, but people clamoring to prove themselves the most pristine of conservatives have a way of sabotaging success.

By the way, if he is thrown out of the party, the Dems pick up a seat. Only the people of his state have a choice in whether or not he serves, and they have made that choice clear.

All you need to know about Specter is that as a young attorney attached to the Warren Commission in 1964, when it could not show how Oswald could have killed JFK, Specter invented the single-bullet-theory.

The government has used it to cover up the murder of the President of the United States for the last 43 years.

How about Snowe, Collins, Chaffee, Frist, Lott, Hatch, Dole, Coleman and the other 40+ RINOs in the Senate.

And let's kick out the RINO Governors like Arnold, Petaki, and Romney.

And the President...

Specter shouldn't be kicked out of the Republican Party, he just shouldn't have been rewarded with a leadership position. It signals a party that really doesn't have any strong convictions outside of business, and doesn't really care about domestic policy except when it interferes with business.

First of all, that hypothesis is nuts.

Secondly, The Discovery Channel performed a sample experiment that showed the single bullet could have easily created every wound it created and come out without deformation.

Oswald killed Kennedy. Science proved it. Monnbats deny it.

I'm an engineer. I understand this stuff. The bullet easily penetrated Kennedy and the man sitting in front of him. It's momentum was impeded by human flesh. The bullet did not deform.

You have to be a non-scientific kook to believe otherwise.

I'm no fan of Arlen Specter's, but you have to give the devil his due. When he allowed the hearings on Feingold's proposal to censure the President, he spoke against censuring President Bush and made Feingold look as silly as his proposal...even Feingold's own party would not support him.

Having said that, I do believe he owes the President more loyalty than he has shown. He definitely is not a Conservative, and I think he erred badly with his "single bullet theory" in the JFK assassination. Because of that error, we will probably never know the truth about what really happened in Dallas that day.

I saw the crap on the Discovery channel. To make it "work" they moved JFK's wound from his throat to his upper right chest. That is a LIE!

Smarten up. Read A FAREWELL TO JUSTICE by Joan Mellon, just published. Shows in total how the CIA murdered JFK.

Don't look for the MSM to cover this anytime soon. They have been on board the coverup for 43 years.

PS: Before you go around calling people names because they disagree with you MR. Engineer, study up on the subject. In addition to Mellon's book read ULTIMATE SACRIFICE by Hartman and Waldron, brand new, just published; like Mellon, they find a conspiracy. Oswald was set up and Specter played a big part in the coverup.

The only people who believe the official findings anymore on those who have listened to Cronkite, Rather, and the other liars who peddled Warren Comm crap for years.

I beg to differ on both counts.

Regarding the censure garbage. Acknowledging the temper tantrum of Feingold is wrong in and of itself. Holding a hearing justifies Feingold's bad behavior.

Secondly, I'm an engineer. If on bullet of the same caliber and from the same rifle takes the path that it took through Kennedy and the man sitting in front of him and is able to cleanly pass most bones in both individuals, it will not deform.

I understand materials science and human physiology. Let's just say it applies to my line of work today. The single bullet theory makes no sense to the layman.

Even the Discovery channel found the single bullet theory to be correct. The bullet had a slight deformation in it and it did not penetrate the leg of the man sitting in front of Kennedy only because the trajectory of the bullet was deflected by a wrist bone in the test dummy. Had it missed that bone, the bullet would have penetrated the top of the leg without any deformation.

I've forgotten more science and engineering than you could even learn in ten lifetimes.
