From the Traditional Values Coalition:

Scary Quotes From Would-Be Democratic Leaders Of Congress

Dear TVC Supporter:

The aftermath of Halloween 2006 could result in frightening results for the future of our nation if liberals gain control of the Senate or the House of Representatives.

Rumors are floating around in Washington, DC that Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens may announce his retirement after the first of the year. Stevens is one of the most liberal members on the Court. His retirement would provide President Bush with another opportunity to nominate a judicial conservative to the Supreme Court.

But, if we lose the Senate to liberals, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) will take over the Senate Judiciary Committee and block all efforts by President Bush to put constitutionalists on the Court or on the federal bench. Judicial reform will die if liberals take the Senate.

It is more important than ever that conservative Christians get to the polls.

Below, we have provided readers with a list of scary quotes from some of the potential leaders of the House and Senate. The first three sections include quotes from Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee. These leaders were referred to as “The Three Stooges” by a writer for Slate.com, a liberal-leaning online magazine.

Other quotes are from liberal Senators and Representatives who will take control of key committees in the House and Senate if the election on November 7th tilts the balance of power to Democrats.

Harry Reid, (D-NV), Senate Minority Leader

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid called President Bush "a loser" during a civics discussion with a group of teenagers at a high school on Friday.

"The man's father is a wonderful human being," Reid, D-Nev., told students at Del Sol High School when asked about the president's policies. "I think this guy is a loser."
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi

"I pride myself in being called a liberal.”
"I don't consider myself a moderate.”
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) (Time, 9/4/06)

"Bush is an incompetent leader. In fact, he's not a leader,'' Pelosi said. "He's a person who has no judgment, no experience and no knowledge of the subjects that he has to decide upon.''

Interview with Neil Cavuto on Fox News on homosexual marriage:

PELOSI: Well, this is what I would fault the Bush administration on. Post- 9/11, the clear and present danger was terrorism, we know that. Instead of getting the job completely done in Afghanistan, where the Al Qaeda was harbored and had sanctuary, we went there, and then looked for another target before the job was done there.

CAVUTO: Let me switch gears, if you don't mind, ma'am. I talked to Governor Schwarzenegger last week, and one of the issues he raised with me that's very big in your state right now is this whole gay marriage issue. He had effectively said -- and I hope I'm paraphrasing him correctly, Congresswoman -- that if the people of California feel one way on the issue he'll defer to the will of the people of California. There has been some disappointment expressed on the part of the gay community, if you will accept that term on, with you. That they don't know clearly your position on this. What is it?

PELOSI: My position on this is that I'm completely committed to defeating President Bush's constitutional amendment. I think it is a desecration of the Constitution.

CAVUTO: What about gay marriage itself?

PELOSI: Well, my goal is to defeat that resolution. I don't want to get myself involved in too many other issues, but my constituents know where I stand on this issue.

CAVUTO: Which is where? How do you stand on this issue?

PELOSI: I don't believe in discrimination of any kind.

CAVUTO: Can same-sex couples marry?


CAVUTO: Should they marry?

PELOSI: And I don't think they should be discriminated in the Constitution. And my goal is to defeat that resolution. And I'm not going to be sidetracked by any other questions about ethics.

CAVUTO: So what the mayor of San Francisco is doing, you would approve of it?


Transcript: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Thursday, March 25, 2004
Howard Dean, Democratic National Committee Chairman

"You know, the Republicans are not very friendly to different kinds of people. They're a pretty monolithic party. Pretty much, they all behave the same, and they all look the same. ... It's pretty much a white Christian party.'' -- speaking about the lack of outreach to minority communities by political parties

"This president is not interested in being a good president. He's interested in some complicated psychological situation that he has with his father."
Senator John Kerry (D-MA)

“You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.” – Watch Video

“They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.” – Testimony before Senate Foreign Relations Committee, April 22, 1971

A video of his shocking testimony in 1971 is available here: Video
Rep. John Conyers (D-MI)

Congress must proceed "with resolutions of censure, but also a select committee to determine whether there may be offenses that rise to the level of impeachability."
(Roll Call, December 21, 2005 Conyers Calls for Censuring Bush)

If we can take back the majority, the Democratic leadership will never have a vote on approving torture, spying on our citizens, or suspending habeus corpus. As you lament our present predicament, keep this in mind. – John Conyers blog, September 28, 2006
Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL)

“If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags or some mad regime — Pol Pot or others — that had no concern for human beings.” – Senator Durbin, June 2005. (He later was forced to apologize for this statement about our soldiers at GITMO who interrogate terrorist detainees.)


“This administration should apologize to the American people for abandoning the Geneva Conventions and authorizing torture techniques that put our troops at risk and make Americans less secure.” – Senator Durbin, 2005

I don't want these people controlling our lives. Do you? Vote Republican tomorrow.
