I'm liking this choice more and more. And the whiners can just keep up their unattractive simpering.
Thanks for the ping!
Harriet Miers gave cash contribution to the Democratic National Committee in 1988 and Gore campaign -- while Bush dad was running for president!...
Enough said. Bush has betrayed the base. This nominee is absolutely unacceptable. She's worse than Alberto Gonzales. The Republicans in the Senate must stop this nomination or the GOP must pay the price and lose power.
We're actually looking at the court moving to the LEFT thanks to Bush.
If World is accurate in this presentation, I'm in the process of being pleasantly surprised.
And speaking of that, I remember late last week the mention of the possibility of candidates who hadn't even been on the bench at all...
Full Disclosure: When I saw she was 55-ish or so, never married, and had dated someone named Hecht, I misread "Hecht" as "Heche" and fairly had a heart attack.
Don't do that to me on a Monday Morning! :-)
Told ya. She's a big time conservative.
Gore was pro-life then. Try again.
thanks. I'll read this now.
Maybe the whiners wanted Bush to use the Popes smoke signal system before choosing a new judge.
I think the site is a Christian site. I got it from a link at NRO I think..LOL..I've been surfing the net and don't remember but I think it was NRO.
I have to be away from the computer for a bit. I'm cooking holiday dinner for my son and I.
I have personal knowledge of the church that she attends. It is conservative and evangelical and those I know who attend there are pro-life.
I feel good about Harriet Miers.

For your information...
This negative analysis is easily dismissed.
1) This lawyer, if a Christian, does not follow his religion.
2) Anonymity strikes again.
But there's more. Her contributions changed to the Republicans around 1994 and I believe stayed in that direction. People have room to grow. I voted for Jimmy Carter. Twice. And now, I'm a conservative Republican. I see this potentially as a Bill Clinton conversion.
I think that since Miers has such personal loyalty to Bush personally, she's be even more conservative than she would otherwise, so she won't be another Souter hung around his neck by conservatives.
I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see her be every bit as conservative as Scalia in her votes on the court, regardless of whether she'd be that conservative based on her views alone.
I agree she's a crony, but cronies tend to be very loyal.
Waiting for the RATS...Tick.....Tick,......Tick.
