Unforced Error?

Posted by Mark on October 3, 2005

The regular baseball season has ended. But the political season never ends. While it’s early in the nomination game, many conservatives believe President Bush has committed an unforced error. That means he had an easy out at home base with Luttig, Brown, or Owens, and chose to throw the ball away at first with his Supreme Court pick, Harriet Miers. We’ll see, we’ll see.
Update: 3:15 pm cst
Here’s a bit more on Harriet Miers. Makes me feel alot better, but will give the Left palpitations if true.

Shrewd Move

Just when I think the President has Returned to Stupid, he pulls off another very shrewd move.

High Court Nominee Has Never Been a Judge

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Bush nominated White House counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court on Monday, turning to a lawyer who has never been a judge to replace Sandra Day O’Connor and help reshape the nation’s judiciary.

“She has devoted her life to the rule of law and the cause of justice,” Bush said as his first Supreme Court pick, Chief Justice John Roberts, took the bench for the first time just a few blocks from the White House.

Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid was complimentary, issuing a statement that said he likes Miers and adding “the Supreme Court would benefit from the addition of a justice who has real experience as a practicing lawyer.” – source

Very shrewd on a few fronts, no judicial record to tear apart. The Minority Leader already publicly endorsed her. She’s older so the “legacy threat” that the dems are so worried about doesn’t exist. Not to mention she’s loyal and conservative, and for all the shallow people out there she ia a WOMAN (which of course makes Barbara Boxer real happy). I actually look forward to the confirmation hearing just to see how creative the Dems have to get to find something wrong with this nominee
