Two Days Later the Real War Begins

The Houston Chronicle writes
The Republican expected to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee next year bluntly warned newly re-elected President Bush today against putting forth Supreme Court nominees who would seek to overturn abortion rights or are otherwise too conservative to win confirmation.
This man is a Republican? It has taken Senator Specter all of two days to forget the country rejected a candidate who nuanced the abortion issue. Some one should quietly whisper in the Senator's ear, quoting a former presidential candidate campaign slogan, "Bring - it - on"

Update: Interesting discussion of this report at the The Volokh Conspiracy.

Update: Redstate has some good recommendations about how we can help head off Specter's election as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Let's do something. As Redstate says "the President deserves a Judiciary Chairman who represents the values of the Republican Party". Personally I am emailing Senator Frist and my two Senators, McCain and Kyl. Senator Kyl is on the committee.

Update:The Volokh Conspiracy does a good job of discussing Judiciary Committee strategies.

Update:Senator Specter sounds like he is recanting yesterday's warning to President Bush but is he? The fist appears to be still in the iron glove as far as I am concerned.

Update:The National Review Online captured the essence of the complaint with Senator Specter's calculated dictum.

For the social conservatives who just elected Republicans to office for the very purpose of getting sound judges confirmed, Specter's elevation would not just be a symbolic slap in the face but an actual betrayal.

Update:Whoa momma! There is an Anti-Specter website up and running called www.notspecter.com that literally came out of nowhere in a day or so. It gives all the details on how to oppose Specter's election to the Chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee. It is sponsored by RedState.org. Check it out.
