I think enough is enough. People everywhere are weary of this nomination and now the White House is trying to re-launch Miss Harriet Miers. Hopefully, Bush will get the hint that we don’t want anymore backfiring. You heard it here first and others agree, Rush included. Other bloggers, Ken, Dad29, and Neo Con Blogger also agree that this nomination was not only a mistake, but an insult to us as well.
We voted Bush into the White House under the premise that he would represent our ideals, morals, and political goals. This nomination has yet to reflect any of those. Perhaps she is a conservative, constructionist but how is this proven? She has definitely not proved this from her past party contributions or her support for Gay/Lesbian rights.
My only hope was that this nomination was actually part of a bigger plan. Maybe Bush threw Miers up there to catch some heat while his real nominee is getting prepped for battle… most likely not. We’ll just have to hope that this nomination is in our best interest and if she does step down, hopefully Bush will get the hint for his next nominee. Rush put it best in his op-ed piece in the WSJ:
"We've witnessed too many occasions where Republican presidents have nominated the wrong candidates to the court, and we want more assurances this time--some proof."
