Ann Coulter just took apart SCOTUS nominee on the Mike Rosen show (My report)
Ann Coulter's appearance on the Mike Rosen show, 850am KOA ^ | This morning, Mon. Oct. 4th | Report from Mike Rosen show

Posted on 10/04/2005 10:39:32 AM PDT by ajolympian2004

Ann Coulter just took apart President Bush's SCOTUS nominee on the air during her appearance on the Mike Rosen show here in Denver on 850am KOA. She called for listeners to write their senators to oppose the nomination. Wish you could have heard it!

Ann said - "Totally unqualified", called Judge Roberts "a 'dream' candidate in light of this nomination", mentioned "cronyism" over and over. Much more that I'm trying to digest. I called the station to see if they saved the audio, but no luck on that. Mike Rosen was just about speechless as Ann went on and on about why this was a lousy choice.

I agree with Ann. Huge mistake and missed opportunity.

Ann's choice, Janice Rodgers-Brown. Not enough intestinal fortitude in the White House to go with that choice.

Can't wait for Ann's column on this nomination later this week.

Ann's column this week will probably deal with the 'maverick' (read: delusional, power mad, and out-of-control) Ronnie Earle!

As for her stance on Miers..... I think she is disappointed, as are many conservatives like me, in the President in that he is avoiding a fight. A fight that would bring into the open what the Dems consider 'mainstream' issues, like PBA and parental notification to take two examples. Let the Dems make statements during the confirmation hearings that it's a woman's Constitutional right to a partial birth abortion, and that it's a 13-year-old's Constitutional right to no parental notification for an abortion. The Pubbies seem to be running away from this fight, when the American people would be solidly behind them.

While Miers may not be the best qualified, it is simply ridiculous to act like she is some sort of coffee lady who takes dictation. She is a self-made corporate attorney who rose to the head of a large law firm. That is an accomplishment.

Hey now, Ann parlayed her own law degree into a position on Spence Abraham's staff. That's coffee and dictation on Capitol Hill, kiddo ;)

I've said it before, a mid-term election and an insatiable taste for pork is incentive enough for a party-line vote.

Again, it's rather funny that FReepers should naturally support the president no matter what, but not Republican senators.

Janice Rogers Brown was voted down 3 times I think, before the gutless 7 ran from the Nuke Option, do you think Bush forgot that?

Tell me when Brown failed to get 51 votes. Tell me where that "agreement", which specifically ended the necessity of a 60-vote supermajority for her nomination, said, "This agreement regarding the non-filibustering of Janice Rogers Brown doesn't apply if she is nominated to the Supreme Court."

Let's see. Two presidential victories, increased numbers in the House and Senate in 2000, 2002, and 2004.

He hasn't done much with those victories now, has he? 2006 and 2008 are the legacy years. As it looks now, we're in for a bloodbath. I pray that we go into the election years with *something* to show the conservative base that their votes weren't wasted. At the moment, when I look at my score-card, I see as many minuses as plusses.

That is an accomplishment. For Ann to denigrate this woman in this manner makes Ann look petty.

Agreed. That is, however, part of her schtick. Bombast is her middle name.

That said, Ann, if you are reading this, I am just the sort of guy to set you straight, call me...

She was Deputy Chief of Staff and then White House Council.

In 1985, she became the first female president of the Dallas Bar Association and in 1992 became the first woman to head the Texas State Bar.

You don't do the above without the talent, toughness, logic and ability to work with people.

She shows she is well liked on all sides of the isle to be Head of the Texas State Bar and had to pass lots of scrutiny to get that.

She's a tough cookie and seems to be a great pick since she's been working with Bush for a decade and has been his most invited guest to Camp David and his ranch to work.

This will turn out IMO like a less known but as conservative pro life version of Condoleezza Rice.

Those who don't should be exposed for the useless seat-fillers they are. They would be defeated in short order in the next election. An enemy you know in the seat is preferable to a 'friend' that abandons you when his vote is most needed.

One doesn't need a law degree to understand the US Constitution.

Yes, it seems like lawyers make the big money finding ways to make it say what it doesn't say. And then telling us that without a law degree we wouldn't understand.

I think that we do know the kind of justice that Miers will be, even more so on the issues of abortion and "gay rights." Harriet Miers may be relatively unknown outside of the Dallas area but she's highly thought of by conservatives around here. She' s been the only person on the Dallas City Council with a lick of sense in the past 20 years, she was president of a huge and powerful law firm, and she had a no-prisoners policy when she ran the Texas Lottery.

We STILL don't know if John Roberts will be a conservative on the Court. We know he's a member of the Federalist Society, and, to his credit, that he thinks using foreign court decisions as a basis for U.S. Supreme Court decisions is improper. We also know that he's claimed to understand the limited role of the judiciary. We don't know much else.

I do not trust 'benefit of the doubt' on a Supreme Court nominee. We've been down that 'trust' path before too many times.

I am not arguing Harriet Miers case or defending the Presidents nomination. I am still on the undecided at this point, but am giving the President the benefit of the doubt considering that to this point all of his judicial nominations have been superb. I am only rebutting the assessment that JRB would not be filibustered. By the way, those "Republican Senators" already wimped out on the "nuclear option" so forgive me if I have a little more faith in the President than I do the Senate Republicans.

Nonsense, Texas is a tough town and she it a tough cookie to be sure.

For a second, think about all the women around President Bush in his life and at the White House. His mom and wife are powerful women. The women of the White House have been powerful and that is the way Bush does things.

You have nothing to worry about.
You would have to be saying that after over a decade of having this woman working with him that he still doesn't know here. I doubt that, Bush sizes up people well IMO.

We have a cultural problem in some of the jurisdictions that are sending these RINOs up, especially New England. Our best bet is to work to flip the rest of the "Ds" to "Rs" in the red states.

Well, Rice is another tough cookie, a good conservative, but not real strong on being pro life.

I think it takes guts to ever put a woman in power as a judge because they have a more natural tendency to be socialists. So when Bush appointed this woman, he had to be certain she was not a socialist and more of strong conservative that doesn't believe in the nanny state.

"DU troll" (dee you troul') n. 1. Someone from Democratic Underground (DU), a site just like FreeRepublic, only completely different, who comes to FR to stir up trouble. 2. Anyone who dares disagree with GWB about pretty much anything at all. Syn. "knee-jerk Bush-hater"; "sunshine patriot"; "third-party voter"; "closed-border fanatic".

Of course, much presupposition exists here on Dubya's selection of the SCOTUS nominee. First, is that all members of the Senate Judiciary Committee will vote in the affirmative, and second that the GOP Senators will vote to affirm.

The last point is no "slam dunk."

A DU troll is someone who posts primarily at "Democratic Underground", signs up (usually within the past week) at FR, then starts launching Scuds without provocation.
Heroes include Satan and Che Guevera.

Problem is, we have Bushbots on site, too. A Bushbot believes that W is Lord Almighty God, plain and simple.
Heroes include Hugh Hewitt and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Then there are the Dissenters. Dissenters typically criticize the president over petty issues like lifetime appointments to the Supreme Court and pretending we have a border, but are often accused of being DU trolls. Heroes include Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter.

Yep. I was quite fond of her, and particularly enjoyed "Slander", however I lost respect for her when "Treason" came out during an interview with Chris Matthews on Hardball. While some liberals are guilty of what could be construed as treason, Ann couldn't answer Chris when he asked her if JFK was guilty of treason. I'm a rabid Republican, but can't imagine anyone claiming President Kennedy was truly guilty of treason except to generate pure controversy and sensationalism.

You got it exactly. A lot more people in this country were not educated at Ivy League schools than were. And Ann Coulter makes her cash by being flamboyant and over the top. I like her, but lets face it, she wouldnt make money by being cautious.

Just curious, where did she get her law degree? Oh, and I think the lack of pictures here may warrant some serious soul searching. Rules are rules dammit!
