I did not put this in "breaking news." I did put it in "News/Activism," but I did not check the "breaking news" box. I did check the vanities box.

He thought he could win over the French...He thought he could trust Turkey. He thought he could trust the United Nations. He seems to still think so.

Hehe...you don't really believe that do you? It is a strange type of liberal that thinks reducing taxes will help the economy recover and increase tax revenues.

Forgive me, but I'm gonna pass on that. George W. Bush is no liberal.

Bush has nominated known conservatives, so I can't say that he hasn't been conservative just because he's nominated another stealth candidate. Roberts was a relatively stealthy pick as well, and conservatives seem as pleased with him as they've been with other nominations at the lower level courts.

But Miers doesn't make me say he's been consistently conservative by nominating her after Roberts.

I'm not sure conservatives have established the street credibility necessary to demand that ALL of Bush's nominees be known conservatives, as opposed to stealthy conservatives.

That's exactly why conservatives need to lead out front on the filibuster issue, to establish the necessary credibility to demand that ALL nominees be known conservatives.

Until conservatives establish that credibility, the GOP isn't going to take very kindly to their recent tirades, and all of us will continue to suffer.

Which is why the liberals hold on to the Congress/Senate and White House, oh my mistake.

What we have is a party that wants to ride the middle. As long as people admit that then there is no argument. A piddly tax cut here, a big spending program there, kill some fanatic muslims here, throw money at bureacracies there...

>> I'm not sure conservatives have established the street credibility necessary to demand that ALL of Bush's nominees be known conservatives, as opposed to stealthy conservatives. <<

How about anyone who is not at best stealthy? I didn't complain about Roberts because even though he was a stealth candidate at best, he had established himself as a fantiastic pick on non-ideological grounds.

But by scraping so deeply the bottom of the barrel with Miers, he has made very plain that he would never CONSIDER an outspoken conservative.

>> That's exactly why conservatives need to lead out front on the filibuster issue, <<

I agreee whole-heartedly that the use of the filibuster in this instance would be unpardoable. So much so, I can't believe you'd even bring it up. There's no need "to lead out front" on the issue, because it's inconceivable that a conservative would filibuster.

>> Until conservatives establish that credibility, <<

That's my point! He trusts Putin and Chirac and the U.N., but lets his minions call conservatives "vigilantes," and "sexist" and "discriminators."

>> the GOP isn't going to take very kindly to their recent tirades, and all of us will continue to suffer <<

WTF? Are you suggesting that the GOP is punishing us? I've said some people around here have battered wife syndrome, but that's the most directly I've ever seen it expressed, if that's what you're suggesting!
"Don't make Daddy angry, or he's gonna get drunk and start beating us again!"
"Oh, I know it's really my fault... I provoke him to such anger!"
I mean this literally (and, sad as it is, I must even state that I mean the word "literally" literally): Pathetic.

What we have is a Gang of 7 that grabbed power from the President to serve their own aspirations for the oval office, led by McCain, a moderate. Now their efforts have resulted in the President nominating stealth nominees instead of known conservatives.

Conservatives cannot demand all nominees be known conservatives, instead of stealth conservatives, until they take down the filibuster.

You have serious reading comprehension problems.

Conservatives haven't filibustered. I never said they did. They cannot demand that all candidates be known conservatives until they establish that filibusters are no longer a threat to nominating a known conservative.

You are the weakest link.

But conservatives can never criticize a Republican on your planet, can they? Face it, Specter beat Toomey because Bush campaigned for him. And then Bush put forth the word that Specter had better not be denied the chairmanship of the Judiciary committee.

No, Mr. Weakest Link, it's a logical inference. It only takes 50 votes to get rid of the filibuster. The moderates are positively gleeful about Miers. There are only 45 (44+1) Democrats. And we're talking about dissent from the right. So, you are either stupid, or you expect a conservative to filibuster. You'll pardon me that I didn't expect that you were stupid.

Speaking of farts on a Friday night, I last week was at a George Lopez performance. For the first ten minutes all Lopez talked about was how bad his/Mexican farts smell.
Ten minutes of fart jokes.
Next he was talking about how fun it would be to allow child abuse.

Shortly after that, I left. His act stunk worse than his farts IMO. Should this start it's own thread in breaking news?

"You don't trust his judgment but you vote for him? Never understood that logic." -- Americanwolfsbrother

"brain fart" -- texasforever

"Until conservatives establish that credibility, the GOP isn't going to take very kindly to their recent tirades, and all of us will continue to suffer." -- Kryptonite

Does there need to be a discussion of the Constitutionality of a fart in breaking news and whether that is a living fart or a strictly constructed fart?

brain farts... regular farts... lets not go the diversity route on this.. a fart, is a fart, is a fart... a fart by any other name smells the same.

Does there need to be a discussion of the Constitutionality of a fart in breaking news and whether that is a living fart or a strictly constructed fart?

I think we approach the fart like our founding farters did. it is a living fart and each age should interpret that fart as it applies to their epoch in time as to whether it is a breaking news fart or not.
