I voted for GW and think that there is nothing wrong at all with this nomination.
But, if you can come up with a better one, by all means do so, and I'll bet that no matter who this person is, there is something wrong with them.
Let's wait for the hearings as you suggest. Let's hear what SHE has to say. Lord knows I'm SICK TO DEATH of hearing what everyone else has to say.
In years past, when Democrats ran the show, there was hardly a word mentioned on who Clinton appointed. But because it's a Bush appointment, well!!! Can't have Bush appoint ANYONE, can we?
The Democrats have managed to stall, filibuster, and MSM has managed to question everything about anyone BUSH appoints to the point where even the brand of dental floss they use could be a reason why Bush goofed yet again, and this person is not a good candidate.
I wish everyone would put as much energy into bitching about everything a Democrat does with the public trust, who they appoint to SCOTUS, what treaties they signed undermining our sovereignty and violating our constitution.
If we need to be bitching, lets bitch at these republicans in office for not correcting the wrongs done by the Democrat's (and Republican rhino's) in the past. Let's fix law's and clarify them so it doesn't matter who is sitting on the bench, make them so any idiot sitting there CAN'T misinterpret them. A judge has one job. Uphold the law of the land, not create it. Let's take back the country, Restore our constitution, and put the Judicial system back in it's place.

I agree with everything you said. Sure, I'm here throwin' in my two cents. And the first coupla days after Miers was announced, sorry, but I was really surprised and not happy. But, after a day or two, it was already clear the msg had gotten thru, for what that's worth. The displeasure, I mean. So what's the point of beating a dead horse? We don't get to vote anyway. And we ought to see what happens at the hearings.
The positive spin is that this is still a great country. A free country where ordinary joe's can totally flame the president for making a pick they don't agree with. He's no more immune to it than the baseball manager who leaves a pitcher in too long or sets the lineup the wrong way, or the football coach who fails to manage the clock in the last 2 minutes. Pick your analogy.
So here we are, all of us honestly caring about the outcome, honestly wanting the best for our country, honestly acting on our patriotic feelings. And we're free to do it, and lame as the press is, they are free to deliver our feelings all the way to the Oval Office and the halls of Congress. They've heard us.
But, at the same time, it's UGLY for the party. Personally, I am sort of glad. You're right that the Democrats are worse, and maybe we're stuck with what we have, but the idealist in me thinks that this sort of thing is an opportunity for constitutionalists to gain a stronger foothold. What frustrates me is that we have become the blacks of the GOP. The taken for granted. We have no leverage. And I'm sorry. I don't go in for the adoration that some ppl give the president. Call me a cynic, but to me politics is an ignoble profession, and anyone in it is to be watched closely, not worshipped.
