Miers nomination If you listen to what we conserva tives were saying about John Roberts or any of the judicial nominees who were being blocked by the Democrat fili busters or other methods of killing a presidential nomi nation to the federal bench the argument we were making was that the president won the election and by virtue of that victory has the right to appoint judges of his own It was the conservative battle cry that the presidents nominees had the right to go through the process and be voted on by the full Sen We jumped all over lib eral Democrats on this insisting that the president had the right to pick the judges he wants on the federal all of because the presi dent didnt call us personally and get our we wise pundits are suddenly MIKF REAGAN Mike the eldest son of President Ronald is heard on more than 200 talk radio stations national ly as part of the Radio America acting the way the liberals did with Roberts and demanding that he reveal how Harriet Miers will vote and what she thinks about just about every Thats exactly what we condemned the liberals for We are in a snit because he didnt call us and consult with us about his In we are adopt ing a double and you cant have it both Because the president didnt pick some one from the list of names we we are going to stir up a big fuss and question his When the Democrats wanted Judge Roberts to spill his guts about every hot issue that might come before the Supreme we cried foul and called for the application of the Ginsberg Rule insist ing that he did not have to answer these with the Miers its as if there is no such thing as a Ginsberg We want to know everything especially how she feels about Why are they asking merely but not about how she feels about eminent domain or affirmative action or gay mar riage or any other hotbutton issue cer tain to come before the court Dont they matter Miers cant talk about any of those and they know After thats what they told Democrats when they tried to get Roberts and other nominees to vio late the Ginsberg I understand why my fellow conserva tives are Many conservative pundits wanted the president to pick a nominee who had been in the fighting to transform the federal judiciary from the leftwing activist court it has become into what the Founding Fathers originally cre ated one that looks at the Constitution as it was meant by them to be and not as some wacko liberal judges want it to Its been a bloody and liberals have had everything their own way for writing laws instead of interpreting them in the light of the Now that the American people have reared up and fought back and taken the high ground and victory is within our the presi dent turns his back on the valiant conser vative warriors who have fought the good fight and chooses a nominee who hasnt been in the front President has made his and he is entitled to have it pro ceed through the orderly Senate confirma tion Miers has the right to be I agree with two of the most valiant veteran conservative warriors though desperately dissatisfied by the presidents agree that Miers is entitled to her day in The liberal mainstream media have sali vated over the dissension in GOP and they have done everything possible to play up the family fight among Republi when Pat Buchanan and Paul Weyrich voiced their disapproval of the Miers this was presented to the public as allout The fact is that although both men told they are very unhappy with what the president has they are will ing to be fair and wait and see how well she acquits herself during the Senate hear If she does
