Drudge:

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.

Maybe the whiners wanted Bush to use the Popes smoke signal system before choosing a new judge.

She believes in Jesus? Wonderful.

But does she believe in Federalism? That may be more a relevant qualification with respect to her recent appointment.

I've posted excerpts from this interview here on Free Republic and at my website

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.

" ... but here's one negative analysis from a lawyer who is a conservative Christian and worked with Harriet Miers in Texas ... "


This negative analysis is easily dismissed.

1) This lawyer, if a Christian, does not follow his religion.

2) Anonymity strikes again.

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.

"her personal views are consistent with that of evangelical Christians... You can tell a lot about her from her decade of service in a conservative church."

Waiting for the RATS...Tick.....Tick,......Tick.

Here's my favorite section from the post:

Hecht says about Miers' judicial philosophy: "She's an orginalist -- that's the way she takes the Bible," and that's her approach to the Constitution as well --"Originalist -- it means what it says." He notes that her legal practice involved writing contracts rather than tort law, so she was always looking at the plain meaning of the words: "Originalist." He also says she's not a social butterfly who will be swayed by Washington dinner table conversation: "She goes to the dinners she's supposed to go to. She's not on the social circuit."

"Hecht, 55 and never married, and Harriet Miers, 60 and never married, have known each other for 30 years and are -- to quote Hecht -- "very close friends."

Ummmm....My Grand Daddy told me when I was a teen ager, "Anyone that was not married by the age of 40 is either gay (He didn't quite use the politically correct term) or of superior intelligence."

Thanks for the information. I'm inclined to believe that she could be qualified to serve on the SC, based on this information. I'm juggling a lot of stuff right now, and I'm far behind in the nomination process.

Wow. This really is Souter deja vu!

Miers has been a member of Valley View Christian Church in Dallas for 25 years, where Hecht has been an elder. He calls it a "conservative evangelical church... in the vernacular, fundamentalist, but the media have used that word to tar us." He says she was on the missions committee for ten years, taught children in Sunday School, made coffee, brought donuts: "Nothing she's asked to do in church is beneath her." On abortion, choosing his words carefully for an on-the-record statement, he says "her personal views are consistent with that of evangelical Christians... You can tell a lot about her from her decade of service in a conservative church."

My mindset against this woman just changed. I am a member of the same church group, and even served as the vice-president of a large pro-life group. This lady will be...A VERY GOOD CHOICE!
