A Personal Message From CFIF President Jeff Mazzella:
I want to thank each and every one of you who has participated in CFIF’s blast fax campaign to end the obstructionist filibusters blocking President Bush’s judicial nominees. Our campaign has been successful in letting Republican Senators know that we expect them to show some spine and END THE FILIBUSTERING OF JUDICIAL NOMINEES ONCE AND FOR ALL! In fact, the heat we are putting on Republican Senators to implement the “Constitutional Option” — or “Nuclear Option” as it’s been dubbed by the liberal media — has gotten under the obstructionists’ skin. Senators Teddy Kennedy and Robert Byrd immediately responded by publicly railing against the Constitutional Option.
Your faxes are working! And with the likelihood of at least one Supreme Court vacancy this year, we must continue to turn up the heat.
I thought I would share some of the comments of CFIF activists who have sent faxes thus far…
“Thanks for being on top on this issue. It is vital for our Country and our way of life. You put me and thousands of others on the forefront of the battle for our Country.”
— R.R., Concord, CA
“We have to stop this unconstitutional use of the filibuster. The functioning of the country and the future of the judicial branch is far more important than the phony niceties of the Senate sandbox.”
— S.T., Houston, TX
“It's time to take the gloves off Senator Frist. You're in command. Give the order, and let’s move on.”
— V.S., Durham, NC
If you haven’t already joined this vital effort, please send your faxes now.March 3, 2005
