Harriet Miers

My disappointment in the president's choice for the Supreme Court grows every day. The repercussions of this decision will far outlast this administration, and I can not believe Bush did not nominate a no-questions-asked conservative candidate.

JPC makes the case that Bush won't get far on his agenda if this SC nominating process gets bogged down, that we could lose the Senate, etc. I don't buy it. Bush is at his best when he is on offense, and lately he's been completely on defense. Yes, Frist, Delay, Katrina, etc, aren't helping the GOP image, but the base will completely rally around the president and a proven c-o-n-s-e-r-v-a-t-i-v-e nominee. I know....I'm part of his base. This would also help energize the base for the mid-term elections.

While I AM confident that Harriet Miers is a highly capable person, I'm also confident she's not the best candidate for the Supreme Court, which troubles me greatly. Bush's introduction of her as his nominee underscores this point ("She has argued cases in state and federal courts!" "She was elected to the Dallas city council!") I can't go forward on good faith with Bush's "Trust me" regarding Miers (God knows we've been burned before).

I hope somehow the president's aides can convince Miers to withdraw. Yes, it would look horrible, may even energize the Dems to fight like hell against the next nominee. However, some things are worth fighting for, and a nominee aligned with Bush's judicial philosophy, with the unashamed track record to prove it, would energize the conservative base (and hopefully the GOP in general) to participate.

It would be great if she withdrew, but before she makes such a decision she would ask the President what he thought, and he would tell her not too, so she wouldn't. Its to bad, here we have the chance to put a hardline constitutional conservative on the bench for two and a half decades, and to once again criminalize the awful crime of abortion, and we blow it, instead choosing an old lady with no track record. Amazing.
