    Been listening to it on FOX too. Maybe NOW Bush will nominate someone that the consevatives can fight for vigorously as opposed to apologetically.

    Meanwhile, Dubin encourages Bush to appoint moderate and avoid a fight.

    Good news ... she did the right thing by withdrawing....

    now the question is... will Dubya do the right thing and appoint a CONSERVATIVE judge as his mandate from the voters tells him to?

    I think we should have gone with Miers. Why was David Frum, Bush's main speechwriter, SO against her? He was out spinning against her the next day. Maybe Bush was trying to throw the yoke of JEW control. But all the good little neocons jumped on board without knowing why.

    Wasn't this the problem to begin with? Well more than her judicial philosophy was unknown to avoid a fight but still, why should the President nominate someone else the base is going to get up in arms about?

    I think the best choice right now would be Janice Rogers Brown.

    I had a feeling something with Meirs happened today when my Constitutional Law Professor was telling us to learn Constitutional Law so that when we are brought before the Judiciary committee we would know what our positions are. It was an odd comment if something like this hadn't happened.

    Honestly, I dont think I would have had a problem with Miers. However, alot of the base was upset about her being such an unknown.

    I think you need to leave whatever disagreement you have wish jews out of analysis. It just doesn't really apply.

    This is great! Now Bush can (he better!) nominate a proven conservative actual judge who has the track record, the qualifications and the experience and if the Dems don't like it - bring it on! :thup:
