This makes me feel a little better about her: http://www.worldmagblog.com/blog/
I'm nervous, too. I don't know what to think. I just heard Wendy Long from Judicial Confirmation Network endorse her. But then I hear Scott McClellon say democrats involved in selection.
Well the Bush Bashing Bots need to whine and moan on every thread..
The extreme right has been rejected, and they are blubbering like babies.
They know that Rov v. Wade is not going to be overturned, and that SCOTUS is not going to intervene to save the Schiavos of the world.
I thought the idea was always that we do not want judges legislating from the bench. Now the complaint from the right is that we don't trust this judge not to vote in our favor.
What a mess.
all good questions.
Granted, Roberts was incomparable in this sense but I don't think anyone has put forth the case she in the top league of those remaining.
I didn't need a fight. I would prefer her qualfications be sound. Miers are adequate. It's a disappointment to me.
Yes....I am tipping my hat to you----I predicted exasperation...but not so much anger or disgust...
I just saw a thread that says that Cheney will be on with Rush...maybe he can calm Rush down.
President Bush wants to get action taken the next 3 years. If the dims do like Miers, than good. Maybe work will get done.
i dont like how rush has started this show. This is CLEARLY a horrible decision by Bush and rush knows it. He is suger coating this bigtime-- probably because cheney is coming on at 1! Savage will go crazy tonight saying rush is just a spokesman from the Republican party..
I used to think that as well, but the truth is if we can't voice our opinions on this forum something is wrong.And no matter how good GW is he can't be right every single time.
"The caveat is, I don't know this woman. She could end up being fabulous." Rush then goes on to say, "Why do we have to roll the dice?"
That's the kicker. If you have a nominee with a record, the record gets drudged up and used against the nominee.
So, with a difficult record to parse (for us as well as the Dims), there are these options:
1. Immediately oppose, because Bush picked her
2. Immediately oppose, because of unknown record or because (any given RINO or Dim) expresses anything other than rabid hatred of the nominee
3. Immediately support, because Bush picked her
4. Immediately support, because (any given trusted conservative) expressed support
5. Wait and see what comes to light in a period longer than 2 hours.
I'm opting for choice #5.
Savage is a nutcase. If he is against Rush or Bush, then I am 100% for them.
I think the extreme right do want a judge to legislate from the bench when it comes to issues such as abortion (which I think it is a state issue)..
Hopefully she's a Zell Miller style ex-democrat, who actually had the principles to switch to the GOP.
Again... Rush does not always support the WH. Rush expresses his own beliefs. Does Rush agree with the WH when it comes to Border/Illigal Immigration issues? Does Rush agee with the WH when it comes to handing billions of $$$ to Africa? Does Rush Agree with the WH when it comes to the huge spending buget? You are wrong.
I am not a Bush bashing bot. Nor are many in objection. You do yourself a disservice in dismissing objections as rooted solely among the discontents that are never happy. This discontent is widely more spread.
Its about correcting previous legislative rulings.
All hail Bush! March in step! Cannot get your conservative credentials if you criticize, now can you?
All of us criticizing the pick are persona non grata now, right?
IMHO, his bio would read alot better to me without this:
He is also Chief Counsel of the European Center for Law and Justice (ECLJ).
We are not blubbering like babies. We are fighting like sled-dogs.
Your inverted understanding of judicial activism not withstanding, we do not want legislation from the bench. We want Strict Constitutional Interpretation.
"Bush...weak...pick...designed to appease..."
Rush is correct, as usual. What concerns me is the last point he made before going to commercial. Bush is making it look like nominating a conservative IS outside the mainstream.. somthing to run from.
Stick that in your pipe, Rove.
I am sick of all this "realignment" talk. What is party "realignment" when it cost your soul?
