Dishonesty (Mark R. Levin is pissed off)
NRO ^ | October 31, 2008 | Mark R. Levin

Posted on 10/31/2008 1:10:49 PM PDT by RobinMasters

This is pathetic. Doug Kmiec, I remember when you came to my office at the Justice Department — where at the time I was serving as associate deputy attorney general under Attorney General Ed Meese — seeking an appointment. I remember processing your papers and sending them to the White House for political clearance.

I remember advocating for your appointment to a deputy assistant attorney general post in the Office of Legal Counsel and securing your appointment.

And from there, Doug, you became the acting assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel in the last days of the Reagan administration. You have now used your resume to give cover to perhaps the most radical and unqualified person to be nominated for president.

And your arguments on Obama's behalf have been nothing short of dishonest. I am extremely disappointed in you. But my guess is you've earned a judgeship should Obama win the presidency. Frankly, sometimes you think you know somebody when, in fact, you don't.

There has got to be an inside story here. How did Kmiec become a full-fledged liberal over the years? When did that start? And how?

We ought to send Meese over to kick his a*&. Ed still could, no doubt about it.

Many of us have wondered aloud what this creature was receiving in return for its apostasy. A judgeship? Sounds reasonable. I hope that the apostate creature Kmiec enjoys its worldly status for its remaining days on earth. It will answer to the Supreme Judge at the end of them, and it would not be unreasonable to speculate that things may not go well for the apostate with that Jurist.

“I think after this election we could have a much stronger Republican party.”

Believe your are right, for those that have been sleeping this cycle has been a jarring wake up call no matter who wins.

My theme elsewhere has been we must have a stronger party. This vessel is taking on water and we are running out of time. We cannot take a 3.5 year vacation.

If O and the boys are not victorious this time it will not be the end of it. They are fighting the long war and clearly gaining momentum in most fronts. Consider what is happening in Latin America.

The fact is, a lot of these so-called Reaganites (Kmiec, Noonan, Powell, Jim Webb, etc.) were nothing but political whores all along. Reagan was a powerhouse and they all wanted jobs in Washington. They never understood him, they never believed in him... they just wanted to be a part of something.

Elections like this are useful for the purpose of weeding them out. When this is over, never forget these hacks who worked to throw our country into the abyss and bastardized Reagan’s great name in the process.

Damn every last one of them.

I’ll bet twenty pieces of silver that, indeed, Kmiec is acting as he has lately in the hope of great reward. There is simply no other rational explanation — other than genuine mental illness — for Kmiec’s wholesale cashiering of the judicial and pro-life principles for which he DID eloquently stand until 2-3 years ago.

I think the sad story of Kmiec’s defection has nothing to do with “becoming a full-fledged liberal” and everything to do with vanity and the seduction of evil. Kmiec was a Romney supporter and stood a good chance of being made a judge if Romney won. Once McCain got the nomination, Kmiec had to accept that the chances of his ever becoming a judge are very slim...unless he sucked up to the other side. Kmiec’s irrational support for Obama brings to mind the Bible story of the Devil spreading all the riches of the world at Jesus’ feet. Jesus, of course, resisted temptation; Kmiec has not. Obama’s campaign has made good use of quislings like Kmiec, and Kmiec is obviously enjoying the attention. He should enjoy it while it lasts, because either McCain will win or Obama will win and forget about Kmiec. If Obama wins, dumps Kmiec, and signs the “Freedom of Choice Act”, Kmiec will write a column about how he was fooled by Obama. No, Mr. Kmiec, you weren’t fooled by Obama; you were used by Obama, and your contrition is disingenuous and far too late.

Unfortunately, Mark Levin has been the exception rather than the rule in the republican party. It has been inundated with self-serving little RINO toadies like Kmiec. The NE country club types who have declared the era of Reagan over and who are all too eager to sell out both the nation and the American people for a good review in the NY Times. Besides, everybody knows you can’t get a decent claret at those redneck get togethers.

You are correct Petronski. Kmiec is a traitor and has gone over to the dark side.

It is unbelievable that Kmiec is the same man at this link: http://judiciary.house.gov/legacy/2187.htm

The rise of Governor Palin is a threat to the Mitt Romney political capital for 2012. Romney sycophants’ rabid attack strategy at FR had to be redirected into something, eh? You don’t sling garbage like ‘bigot’ and ‘mormon hater’ at fellow Freepers as mere political haggling.

I remember in the GWB administration Kmiec once wrote a piece about how he was being considered for a judicial position and how he felt unfairly targeted for his then conservative judical philosophy.

I asked a friend involved in judicial nominations if it was true that Kmiec was under consideration, and the response was only “well, that is what he said in the newspaper, isn’t it?”. In other words, if Kmiec had ever been up for consideration, he was no longer.

It’s a bizarre strategy that he chose. There is no reason why he could not have jumped on board to help McCain, just like Romney did. He could have been a team player. But he thinks he can get Obama to give him a judicial post, with all the conservative stuff he has said and written? Just b/c he endorsed a liberal in the general election? Good luck with that strategy, Kmiec.

Mark Levin has been the exception rather than the rule in the republican party.

I disagree in one way, Mark is the rule when it comes down to all of us Republicans out in the real world, he is only the exception to those who are given media attention or are in 'the beltway'... the exceptions are the beltway snobs.. they just think they are the rule because they only surround themselves with like thinking individuals.. it is why talk radio is so threatening to these elites- Mark, Rush, and others give a voice to the 99% of us, it is the most Democratic media. You would never see Katie Couric taking viewer's calls.

I have seen very little of Romney in the news, but they say he has been fund-raising for the RNC. I hope that’s true.

As for Doug Kmiec: “And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.”

If Kmiec had just said, “I’m voting because of the Iraq war,” and left abortion out of it, he might have had an argument. But he is now as twisted as a pretzel trying to insist that his vote for Obama is prolife.

Doug Kmiec is no Catholic either. He cannot seriously both believe in his faith and support a candidate who is so pro-choice, that he (Obama) would deny medical treatment to a baby born alive after a botched abortion.
