Freepers, other citizens storm Sen. Specter's Office on Porkulus

Sen. Arlen Specter must feel like one lucky man today. He wasnt in his Capitol Hill offices when MAF Chairman Melanie Morgan, Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee, Freepers and Free Republic founder Jim Robinson, and other patriotic citizens stormed his office to demand he reverse his position supporting the porkulus bill, aka the Barack-Blowing-Through- Dollars-Scheme.
MAF, as you know, is a protroops organization, and it is our opinion that this legislation will hurt veterans healthcare - not to mention every other American.
Were really in town for our big press conference on Tuesday, when we release our commercial opposing President Obamas decision to close Gitmo.
But we kept ourselves busy today. Melanie was at her finest, when we arrived at Specters office. For those of you who dont know Specter, hes a flip-flopping, spineless bureacrat who calls himself a Republican. Hes also one of the traitors who supports Obamas spendulus bill. This is why he was a target for Mondays action, spurred by Kirstinn Taylor of Free Republic.
Melanie and Jim Robinson asked to see the Senator. Specters front-office staff need to go back to kindergarten to get their manners tuned up. either that or they should go to work at Wal-Mart to pick up some tips from their greeters. A secretary, who wasnt happy to see American patriots, refused to answer where the Senator was hiding. Jim, wearing his Navy cap, asked over and over about the Senators whereabouts, but the secretary wasnt helping. It was distressing to see a Navy veteran being treated with such disrespect by a Senators staff.
Well, the cold-shoulder was too much for Melanie, who decided to take matters into her own hands. She stepped to the closed door leading to Specters office and the offices of his staffers, and flung it open. I didnt take notes on what she said, but it went something like this:
Come out! We want to talk to somebody right now!!
The secretary didnt like this. You cant go in there, she warned Melanie, who promptly ignored her.
Sombody come out here right now!!! We want to talk to you. Now!!!
Specters chief of staff had finally had enough and came out to face the American citizens who wanted to redress their government official.
Melanie stepped toward him and unleashed a wave of complaints that hit him like a typhoon.
Again, I didnt take notes, but it went something like this:
Tell Specter to stop acting like a liberal. We are watching him and were not going to let him get away with this!
Others had a few things to add to that. Debbie Lee introduced herself and handed the chief of staff a card with her son, Marcs, picture on it. He was the first Navy SEAL to give his life in Iraq, she explained.
Liz Colby Harp brought her five homeschooled children so Specter could see whom he is saddling with trillions of dollars of debts. She was gracious, intelligent and dead on with her remarks.

I know this makes the protestors feel good and I appreciate their efforts to do good, but it has no effect on these Senators unless you can prove you are a voter in their state. I am told by staffers that they pay no attention unless they get letters,not e-mails or phone calls, from their constituents or personal contact when they are back in their home state.
You ‘born agains’ are funny.
Great report. Are you going to do the same and Snowe’s, Collins’ and Corker’s office.
I pray you do!
It's not the individual senators, it's the people rising up.
You have expressed their propaganda quite well, thank you.
Follow it, or follow the people to freedom
Future victims of the Obama Porkulous Spending Bill
Written by Melanie Morgan Monday, 09 February 2009
Future victims of the Obama porkulous spending bill protest at Senator Specters office today in our nations Capitol. This mom drove in from Alexandria with her five home-schooled children, determined to do everything she can to stop this immoral bill.
Fantastic picture and FR member family!
I listened to that segment. Hannity took the fire to him, and Specter babbled on about the bill being the least of two bad options, that he preferred McCain’s recommendation $400B will tax cuts and mortgage assistance.
My question to the obviously congnitive-failing Senator is “why don’t you stand tough and try for something closer to the McCain idea?”
If he didn't vote like this, who would even know his name.
There needs to be a price.
Donks vote like a herd ... our guys vote like dumb Spectors.
Bravo Freepers! You guys ROCK and should be an example for the rest of us. We DO need to storm these elected official’s offices and let them know WHO they work FOR!
Emails and phone calls just ain’t cutting it these days.
There's going to be a lot more of this -- Very Soon. Liberals are going to start seeing pitchfork mobs, at the very least.

....and it won't be restricted to just opening doors, either.
Enemies of America, beware! The people have HAD IT!
>>>YOU both are OUTSTANDING!!!!
You spoke for your nation today.
I’m Catholic. That has been my tagline for a while.
What’s the mom’s FReeper name?
It is very funny for any denomination. I wish him gone.
Great report. Are you going to do the same and Snowes, Collins and Corkers office.
I pray you do!
YEEEEEEEESSSSS! Please do, we would do the same if we were there...
It really is pretty simple. He just believes that government must "do something". He's simply a big government Rino. He's incapable of considering for a moment that the right thing to do might be for the congress to REDUCE spending and REDUCE taxes, or at the very least if they're not going to do that, to do NOTHING.
