Absolutely. There are times I tune in just because I need to hear him put the libs in their place and put some perspective on the behavior. :)

This has been the problem, you seriously see someone needs to be zotted... you check their site and they've been around for years. You look at postings from before and maybe the last 50 have been straight bashing... the ones before on the up and up (conservative), what to do? Either trolls have figured out how to change the member date or jumped into someone else's name, or we truly have some (besides the usual trolls), that have lost it over this. Would love a suggestion on how to handle it.

Why put up with it? Turn her off like I did. I've since found Tony Snow's show and am very happy.

Agreed. Laura has become obnoxious, and it was easy to turn off the radio on her today.

But Bush does sometimes seem to play politics with his judicial appointments

The very 1st two. I guess my point is they need to make the case that this is bad idea. So far the argument boils down to "you cannot trust Bush". We guess what, I have no reason to trust them either. Here are just a few things that reassure me. Believe me, I knew this was going to be a huge poop sandwich. I was just as angry the 1st couple of days. However, I am a Conservative because I think, not feel my politics.

Bush knows his father made mistakes. One of those mistakes was Souter who WAS the pick of the Republican Establishment and not known to Bush Sr. I suspect Miers is the Anti-Souter. He picked someone he KNEW would not "evolve" on the court. Would NOT be a "Souter in a Dress". That is just a guess. I have no way to know that, but I have no way to know that she WILL be a "Souter in a dress" either.

In her writings when running for the Dallas City Council in 1989 she told a Gay activist group, that she would NOT support efforts to overturn the Texas Anti-Sodomy law. Considering she told a hard truth to an activist group while running for office is worthy of respect. Most politicians would NOT of told them that. It shows a strength of character to me.

That she is NOT a product of an "elite" school is NOT a flaw. Sorry but I would like to see some balance on the court. Considering the wacko decisions we have seen from this Court the last 5 years, I am not convinced that having no one on the court except those who have have the exact same training and life experiences is a GOOD thing. I am really bothered that so many of the "Conservative Pundits" have adopted and clung to this line. Basically they are telling us the same thing the Left does. "You peasants need one of US to take care of this, you all are too stupid to handle this" Scalia and Pickering both do not share this worry of the critics. I have reason to respect their judgment I have no reason to trust the critics.

I find it reassuring that she refers to the 2nd Amendment as one of our "precision liberties" not to be shredded just because bad people do bad things. That statement gives an view into her Constitutional Philosophy. Sound pretty Strict Constructionist to me. Even Judge Bork, a hero of the Conservative Legal Establishment, felt it was a collective, not personal, right

The tactics of the critics. Sorry but when I watch supposedly Conservative pundits, like the staff of NRO, adopt the attack lines and tactics of the Hysteric Left, I get VERY suspicious. of their motivations. I mean, after being a subscriber for 25 years, I am SERIOUSLY thinking of dumping both National Review and the Wall Street Journal. If I wanted this kind of emotionally hysteric, smear attacks, I would buy my local paper! Their criticism is emotional, not factual. That does not convince me and does raise my hackles.

Finally when it all comes down to it, the burden of proof is on them, the accusers. The President Picked. The Senate Advises and Consents. The critics have jumped up and said "this is a bad idea". They then demand "you must sell us on this" Ah NO, the accusers MUST convince us they know better then the President. This is another of the attack tactics of the Hysteric Left. Make an accusation then demand the accused prove you wrong. Sorry this tactics is wrong, no matter WHO is using it.

Rush is dead right though. As strident as my disagreements with Freepers like say Cbodt, of Huck or GOPwins get, If their candidate of choice wins in 2008, I will be right their fighting JUST as hard for them. We would not be Freepers if there were not fundamental principals that unite us. Just because we disagree on this issue or that issue does NOT mean we are "impoloding". Quite the contrary, it is a sign of our strength.

Did anyone watch Bill O'Reilly's talking points last night? He said that the people that are so upset at the Miers nomination are upset because they wanted someone with a conservative agenda and that makes us no better than the libs when we cry judicial activism.

Ummm....Bill, we want to make sure Miers will FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION!

When Laura took up for Ben (duck) Afflack the other day, I was thinking she is looking for the lefties. Maybe once she got dumped she decided to go for an elitest type who has 4 homes in the Hamptons.

My problem with this is that Rush did none of those things and he was still attacked. I don't agree with anyone attacking Meirs personally, anymore than I agree with people attacking Rush personally.

I know their are several people that will be anti Bush no matter what he does, but I don't think those are the majority of the people that are very disappointed in this nomination.

She took the avenue out that would least offend, according to my reading of the transcript.

I agree, she was being polite. Sorry she is the 1st Lady not a Pol. A pol would of know to challenge the interviewers spin, she didn't.

LOL---I just checked in on her show now and then...but, it didn't change at all today...

I don't get Tony's show until 7:00 PM here in north Texas...so I channel surf in the morning. It is rather disheartening though, to hear Bush being bashed MORE on Ingraham's show and a couple of local conservative stations than on AirAmerika, though....LOL

Ann Coulter really blew it. She was so good in her beginnings. I turned the channel the other night when I heard she was going on Hannity Colmes. I don't care if she doesn't agree but she's gone off the deep end now. I just don't like the new Ann Coulter persona. ;) You know saying, with friends like that.....

There were a few poor souls that tried to call in and say that she should at LEAST be able to go through the process...

I think the majority of people listening to Laura right now are definitely anti-Meiers. Plenty have turned her off, at least for the time being. My opinion on Meiers is I'm waiting for the hearings to make up my mind. I think Laura should take a step back before she does permanent damage to her listening audience.

Laura drove me crazy today, and it wasn't just the way she drags out that moaning sound when she's deciding which call to take. Somebody tell her we know she's a lawyer.

Rush however is a pleasant surprise. He's at his best when he's teaching and analyzing, and critiquing the left and the MSM. I love it when he does that!!

Agreed.

I wrote John Poheretz the other day when he went off on the sexism charge. I am in the minority but I do think there is a scent of sexism by some pundits. I wrote to him very nicely why and he immediately replied "don't blame me" and he got very defensive.

I wrote him back that I didn't blame him and told him I was a big fan. I got the idea that he has been inundated with hate mail.

I think everyone has gone overboard with names being thrown around by both sides.

Kumbaya all!

Not anymore it would seem, hence the need for this Conservative Reformation to reject the Country Club mentality and dogma of Presidential Infallability.

See that's what i'm talking about. It's one thing to question whether she was the best (we know the answer to that), but it's the way it's being done. I tried to call her a few times and couldn't get through. Every call was, I stumped for him, he betrayed me and worse. I have not heard one positive story or blog mentioned... all conservative negative viewpoints. What's with the vitriol? I too stumped... every weekend in PA for eight weeks, in NJ. for four, went to black churches in Philly, we phone banked, polled, mailed... you name it and with my disabled daughter; I don't see how they can't disagree in a normal way.

I would have more respect for these characters if they started petitions for withdrawal in the beginning instead of thinking of their ratings, books, radio audience and going on Maher/MSM while stirring the pot of anger in the party.

Bad enough the judges are scared to go to hearings, now the regular person without 'all the right credentials' could absolutely forget it. I know... who wants a regular person. I know this is a gold opportunity that we may never have (IMHO, we will have two more soon), but another Roberts (as if there is one), would have the hearings held up when a lot of issues are up on the courts (can we trust congress to do what they need to do... no... look at them now). I want the fight too and we will have it sooner or later.

I was a loyal Laura listener until Hurricane Katrina. Ingraham went over a cliff in August and has been falling further and further.

I discovered Tony Snow and now I am a loyal listener. I will never go back to listening to Ingraham.
