Hey Laura, it's not about the sex of the candidate. It's about respect for the constitution.
Geez!

I have absolute contempt for George W. Bush. Now I’m not too crazy about his wife. In fact, I hope never to see another Bush in public office. They just can’t be trusted.

I’ve always had a suspicion that the former First Lady was a full-bird liberal. Makes me wonder how influential she was in some of her husgband’s particularly stupid and ill informed budget busting stupidities: No Child Left Behind, Prescription Drugs and all the kissy face stupidity with democRats, looking the other way on Sandy Burglar, Harriet Myers, immigration reform.

Hmmmmm.....

“I think she sounds like a very interesting and good nominee,” Bush said of Sonia Sotomayor, the federal appeals judge Obama picked.

Mrs. Bush said in an interview broadcast Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that “as a woman, I’m proud that there might be another woman on the court. I wish her well.”

Now it becomes more clear why GW Bush was so confused and wishywashy about so many domestic policies. Look at what he had to listen to at home. She posed as a quiet supportive deferential First Lady but probably nagged him like a fishwife.

If her qualification, in Laura Bush’s eyes, is that Kagan is female...well, over half the nation is qualified to be a supreme court justice then...and the vast majority would be a better one. And if you limit it to just female lawyers...you’d still find plenty more qualified.

There is no shame for a celebrity - and that's exactly what I would call any First Lady, a celebrity - to say, "I don't have enough subject-matter expertise to know "x".

Laura Bush isn't a lawyer, nor has she ever written about or commented on pressing legal matters, especially as they relate to the Supreme Court, and the qualifications of candidates who aspire to that Court. Why couldn't she say, "I just don't know enough about the law to have an informed opinion?"

"Laura Bush tells "Fox News Sunday" that women should be represented "in all parts of American political and civic life.""

I'm sorry dear Laura but that is one of the most sexist statements I have heard. It's implying that all women think alike. Women do have much different views across the board that profoundly effect legislation. Not just any woman will do.

I saw the original lead-in question and it set her up for the answer she gave. As I recall, she was asked what she thought of another woman being nominated; What was she supposed to say? Would you expect her to say ‘no, there are already enough women on the court’?

The original question was not specific to Kagan as the candidate...about whom she would not likely have any specific knowledge.

She was sandbagged.

The answer is being taken and used out of context to indicate support for this particular candidate.

Laura Bush, in case you haven’t check, Elena Kagan is a
‘woman’ on an even shakier level of ambivalence than Ginsburg
and Sotomayor. Well, I guess she might qualify as the SECOND
“wise Jewish woman” on the Court, after Ginsburg.
The whole point is, we are sick and tired of “identity politics”. It should have no place in our political life.
Rulings from ANY of these three women on , what , “women’s
issues”???? will not change the general “dialogue” on “abortion rights,for example,more than any other Supreme Court , like one featuring ALL MEN, as long as a majority of them are “pro-choice”. What THESE three particular women WILL ensure, however, is a LOCK on this pro-choice,
anti-Life issue for the next 20 or so years.

If Laura Bush thinks that the Kagan nomination is 'great', she is beyond help, she is an absolute, blithering nit wit.

I want to see some of her apologists and fans try to explain this away and why Mrs Bush should be cut some slack for her support of an avowed leftist who has no comprehension, let alone respect for the Constitution and our Republic.

Laura? STFU!

Nope, people who failed to defend the relatively conservative Bush administration and let the left trash it with impunity and push the squishy moderates to the left for one election are the reason we got Obama. This includes people here who were constantly trashing Bush because they did not agree with every single thing he did. I suspect that includes you, so congratulations for giving us Obama.

As for Ms. Bush, I see she learned nothing from her mother-in-law saying equally stupid things in 1992.

This is exactly how we got into this mess. Superficial reasons for backing a nominee. We live in a lazy society. Don’t bother looking behind the lipstick on the pig or the bow on the tail.

Most Americans don’t have a clue as to the vicious radical agenda of the “dem” party

The key person who didn’t defend the Bush administration’s policies was W himself. He should have gone on the attack against the MSM immediately after the 2000 election was kept from being stolen by Gore and against Mayor Nagin, Governor Blanco and the MSM immediately after the Katrina flooding occurred. Quite frankly, the city and state of Louisiana had primary responsibility for NO’s legions of drones—not the federal government.
