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.

I truly believe Brown and Owens and Jones would have been filibustered. Does that mean don't try. I don't know. I also don't know what Bush heard back from the GOP Senators when these names were brought up. Bush can nominate, but he needs the Senators support (at least 50 of them).

Funny thing she said about Roberts. She shredded that pick at first too. Perhaps someone could get her to eat a decent meal once in a while?

Ann Coulter is a "knee-jerk Bush hater", "sunshine patriot", and "DU troll" because she doesn't like the Miers pick.

I wonder if Ann will now go after Clarence Thomas, the justice she has talked about cloning. Because Thomas was not the most qualified for the position in 1991. And was considered a legal lightweight, who only got the spot because he was filling the "black seat". And shudder he actually worked in 41's administration at the time.

She sure is opinionated, ain't she?



She doesn't have a clue what kind of a Supreme Court justice Miers will make. This is not a team sport. Whether we like it or not, Bush gets to pick this nominee. What she's doing is like Monday morning quarterbacking, except on Saturday night.

I heard her yesterday on Howie Carr's show. She kept talking about Miers not being from one of the top law schools in the country. On this issue she sounded like a little bit of an education snob to me.

Unfortunately, this criticism is mostly warranted...and the President, who could have chosen anyone he wanted and had so many potential nominees with well-established track records as strong constitutional conservatives, has no one but himself to blame

I wonder if Bush is thinking more of the courts overall makeup, than the intellectual firepower of the nominee. For example, he gets Roberts in there, a sure fire, first rate thinker, and now, he nominates someone whom he knows and trusts, and he knows that she will be flexible towards Roberts' opinion, much like the Scalia-Thomas relationship. Maybe Bush is thinking more in terms of the GROUP, than the individuals.. hmmmm..

While J. Brown has served on the bench with distinction, she has served at the state level dealing with state issues until her recent elevation to the federal bench. Miers has been dealing with federal issue for much of Bush's term.

If Ann was promoting Edith Jones as more qualified, I would have to agree, but using Brown as her example, fatally flaws her argument.

Yeah, she's praising Roberts now, after putting him through the meat grinder. Every so often Ann hits a foul ball, like her column supporting the WoD. Her Roberts' columns, as well as her complaints against Meiers, is another example.

I LOVE Ann! But she may be wrong here. It is hard to remember 90% of what the media says about Bush is slanted. I would rather go with a personal selection than a Souter type pick.

All this talk about Black seats and female seats has me wondering when it comes time to nominate a Hispanic or Asian, etc., does the quota come from the existing White seats or will they take away a female or Black seat?

I'd just as soon see someone without a law background get on the court, so I have to disagree with Ann here about not having a good enough law school education. I think that's the "Esquire" in Ann talking. I guess there really is something to titles of nobility.

Our spineless worms in the Senate couldn't even get a U.N. Ambassador confirmed, how in the hell would they be able to get Janice Rogers Brown Confirmed?

DO you not think President Bush knows he has pussies backing him up in the Senate?

Ann Coulter should be able to see this, with Chuck Hagel, Arlen Spector, Olympia Snowe, and at least three others side with the RATS over half of the time, we are not going to get a controversial nominee confirmed by these wimps, Janice Rogers Brown would not be where she is if it wasn't for 7 of our spineless worms backing away from the Nuclear Option. I wish Ann would think before she opens her mouth and makes a fool of herself

The prob is the weakness in the Republican bench. Bush has a majority on paper, but in political reality, he can't count on all the R's to stand with him in a big fight.

It's not the Rats he's running from. It's that he knows he the quarterback of a team that only puts 8 men on the field. The plays have to adjust when there's only half an offensive line and half a defense.

People Like Ann make their living off the fight and controversy. They were looking forward to a good fight and lots of face time on the news channels. They've been robbed of that and so they'll get it by opposing her.

All people like me care about is getting Conservative judges on the courts as quickly as possible to put an end to the Judaical tyranny.

Ann was on WRKO yesterday for several hours with Howie Carr and just savaged Meirs calling her nothing more than GW's legal secretary. Savaged her lack of educational pedegree... the whole 9 yards.

It's awful funny that folks fall prostrate on the ground before Coulter normally, but when she doesn't toe the President's line, she's suddenly "underfed" and "crazy" and a "sunshine patriot." Just look at the comments on this thread already.

Too bad honest criticism is not welcome by some folks...

Just damn.

Janice Rogers-Brown would have been a good choice, if it weren't for the fact that she would have been defeated in the Senate.



I think that Bush may have a third appointee, though, and Rogers-Brown might get the nod. More likely, though, an Hispanic.

The last nominee is going to be the most daring because Bush will know that there is no need to hold any of his cards back.

One thing is certain, though... With these charges of cronyism, it's not going to be Gonzales next time.

Whatever else George Bush might be, he is definitely not a COWARD!!!!!!

I would never say he's a coward, but on any issue other than Iraq he seems to run from confrontation. I don't understand it. He did the same thing as governor. The NAACP was fussing about a confederate plaque in the State Supreme Court building (in recogntion of the fact that it was built with funds from the Confederate Widows Fund). One morning, it was gone! Bush had had it removed, unannounced, in the middle of the night. I would have respected his position to remove it had he stood up for it...but he took the easy way out.

This is exactly another point she made with Rosen.

Mike agreed that President Bush should have nominated someone like Luttig, McConnell, Rodgers-Brown, but he will be supporting this nomination of Harriet Miers now that she is the nominee of President Bush.
