I tried to cut this down ,but posted most of it above because it was riviting!

I like to leave some out to encourage readers to go the website of conservative pundits because there is usually many more good writings on their websites.

I felt sorry for Spector today when he was on the Sean Hannity show today. It was clear his brain has failed him completely and he just talks in circles. How else can you explain how stupid he sounded.

Specter is just another guy who underwent unsuccessful brain surgery.

He's probably unaware of the fact that there's a provision in there that's going to cut him off from anymore experimental surgery.

Those RINOs live on experimental surgery!

Outstanding! Thanks for posting this!

He took down the notes with a shaky hand and gave a smile that you might only see on a condemned man as he is walking to the gas chamber.

I hope reality started dawning on him real quick. Next time it may be an armed posse with torches, pitchforks, semiautomatic weapons, and plenty of hanging rope.

TO WASHINGTON BUREAUCRATS: WE ARE TIRED OF THIS CRAP!!!

Collins, too, on Today. I was left thinking (after hearing it on the radio) who would ever vote for this moron? Cloture means that they now just need a simple majority in the Senate and then the House can replace all that Dem pork that was removed in the Senate. Then the House votes on it. Our grandchildren and great-grandchildren will be wondering why we all thought the USA was the best place to live. By the time they are adults, the USA will be just another Socialist country and as miserable as all the rest. Taps anyone?

Pray Psalms 109 with RINO Specter in mind.

Maybe God will call him home immediately.

I heard him on the internet too and didn't realize how stupid Spector really is on his comments about the economy and how FDR's policies brought the USA out of recession.

I feel sad that the Republicans have such senior senators that don't have a clue, but I guess it says a lot about how left Pennsylvania had gone over the years.

Specter is going to be on R.J. Harris at WHP 580 Harrisburg, tomorrow morning. I sent R.J. an email and told him to ask Arlen what he planned to do once we retired him from office next year.

My thoughts exactly, I saw her and said gee, someone would have to slip her a brain cell so she could have one.

Steele has to take the lead here and cut these people off. As far as I am concerned stripping them all of their committee jobs would be a nice first step.

If you can’t stand on your principles, what do you stand for.

Frankly I think Spector had way to much chemo ...

I didn’t get to hear him on Hannity’s show today—had to leave before he came on. Heard Steele though—basically he was saying that Specter, Collins, and Snowe are putting themselves before country. I guess it’s not surprising. It is a shame though when someone has been in the Senate as long as Specter and is as old as he is and he is still putting himself before country. At this point in life, you would think the man would just do what is right. Maybe he doesn’t know how to at this late date.

Steele should ask they be stripped of their committee assignments and reduced to back benchers. But no one has the balls.

So how is Steele going to attract new recruits to the party with these kooks?

Excellent that someone in the party is willing to state the truth. I hope this is a trend, and not an event.

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.

Thank you to Melanie Morgan, Jim Robinson, et. al., for your brave and patriotic actions today in DC storming the office of Senator Specter. You are “doing the job” many of us aren't doing (except through the computer, phone, etc.) which seems so impotent compared to what they have done today!
I heard Specter on Hannity, too. I'd like to give him the benefit of the doubt that he suffers from “Chemo-brain,” but
he's had no judgment since his vote on the impeachment of Clinton—some nonsense about Scottish Law! He has to go!

Those velvet chains are about to transform into cold hard steel.

It's not the individual senators, it's the people rising up.

You have expressed their propaganda quite well, thank you.

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.

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?”

Spector was just embarrassing. He couldn't make a cogent argument at all, for his vote, it was all circular reasoning crap. Trying to sound smart to ignorant people.

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.

There's going to be a lot more of this -- Very Soon. Liberals are going to start seeing pitchfork mobs, at the very least.

> She stepped to the closed door leading to Specter’s office and the offices of his staffers, and flung it open

....and it won't be restricted to just opening doors, either.

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.

It was clear his brain has failed him completely and he just talks in circles.

I think it failed in 1964.

How else can you explain how stupid he sounded.

As far as I can remember, he's always sounded like that... oh might have a touch of dementia now, but in his case, it would be hard to tell the difference.

"didn't realize how stupid Spector really is on his comments about the economy and how FDR's policies brought the USA out of recession."

I heard it too. Hard to believe someone that educated and supposedly BRIGHT could make such ludicrous remarks so ignorant of historical fact. (BTW, Obama made the same remark just a minute ago. Obama went even further to say, he thought these disputes had been resolved. Don't Liberals ALWAYS think disputes between Liberals and conservatives have been resolved in favor of their opinion?) Therefore, I don't. Specter is a Liberal and a socialist who walks the walk and talks the talk. To him, Obama and socialists like them, this is a prime opportunity to expand government and finish the revolution begun in the sixties.
