No that is not why. We did not blindly trust Bush. But we looked at Roberts record of working for Rehnquist, working for Reagan, working for Bush. We saw a long history of supporting Republicans and making rulings based on Constitutional principles. We have none of that with Harriet. Harriet has supported more Democrats in her life than Republicans. Maybe Harriet has changed, but we are not confortable hoping.
You are correct, Roberts got the benefit of the doubt. Now that that is all used up, there's no more left for Miers.
Harriet has supported more Democrats in her life than Republicans. NOW YOU DO NOT KNOW THAT !
