Arlen Specter: Shit, did I really say that out loud?
Arlen Specter on Wednesday:
"The Republican expected to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee next year bluntly warned newly re-elected President Bush on Wednesday against putting forth Supreme Court nominees who would seek to overturn abortion rights or are otherwise too conservative to win confirmation."
Arlen Specter on Thursday:
“Contrary to press accounts, I did not warn the President about anything and was very respectful of his Constitutional authority on the appointment of federal judges."
So I guess CNN just made all that shit up, did they? Figures.
