    Good articles---judicial activism may very well be at the heart of our social ills INCLUDING CRIME. Can we afford to just take a chance with a nominee who may not be the BEST person for the job and just thank our lucky stars that George likes her and she might be easy to get confirmed? I'm really backing down a little here on my support for her even though my buddy Newt says everything will be fine.

    I forget where I read the piece that said, in effect, "Mr. President, we've given you this mandate, and this Congress, with precisely THIS MOMENT in mind. Why are you squandering it?"

    This is our opportunity to repair the damage done by decades of liberal tyranny. To quote the Bard, "When comes such another?"

    Prresident Bush is proving to be a profound disappointment on many fronts. There's going to be war in the Republican Party.

    Could have been Peggy Noonan or George Will, both were very angry. I know many here have been getting angry that I've been upset with GW for quite awhile now. There are reasons to not be in lockstep with any group, but follow your own convictions and speak out-first to the source-when those you 'want to succeed' fail, in your opinion. GW has been failing me for nearly the past year.

    His speech yesterday was great, only problem for me is that it should have been delivered at the latest, after taking Falluja.

    Hopefully, these comments will not be too technical for anyone, but, here goes...I had really "good vibes" about Roberts, but I have "mixed vibes" about Miers. ;)

    I agree that the President seems to be backing down on issues domestically, and has thus been somewhat of a disappointment in his second term, although still far better than his opponent would have been! He can't run again, what does he have to lose? Where's that matza we loved in him last term? :dunno:
