Specter: "I Would Suggest Respectfully To The President That He Is Not The Sole Decider."

Arlen Specter

A Senate Republican on Tuesday directly challenged President Bush's declaration that "I am the decision-maker" on issues of war. I would suggest respectfully to the president that he is not the sole decider," Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., said during a hearing on Congress' war powers amid an increasingly harsh debate over Iraq war policy. "The decider is a shared and joint responsibility," Specter said.
