Miers Nomination Withdrawn

Post by Klast Brell » Thu Oct 27, 2005 7:30 am

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/co ... 00547.html
"It is clear that senators would not be satisfied until they gained access to internal documents concerning advice provided during her tenure at the White House -- disclosures that would undermine a president's ability to receive candid counsel," Bush said. "Harriet Miers' decision demonstrates her deep respect for this essential aspect of the constitutional separation of powers -- and confirms my deep respect and admiration for her."
Oh well. Rather than seeing the Republican Party at war with itself and one conservative justice recused every time the Bush Whitehouse got dragged in to the SC the Miers nomination was withdrawn. The funny part is that the democrats were ready to vote for her. The republicans still loyal to the president were ready to vote for her. She would have been confirmed.
Any guesses on the type of person nominated next?
Will it be a white male?
How much of a judicial record will they have?

Buzz has been that Miers would be withdrawn for a Borklet (or better yet, Bork himself,) for about a week now.

I thought it was bullshit.

IMO, most bullshit rumor right now is that McCain would replace Cheney if he's forced to resign. It makes the tiniest bit of sense on the surface, until you ask yourself "What the fuck's in it for McCain?"

Yeah, but that would be Gerald Ford gravitas. :lol:

But really, I don't think Cheney will be indicted. Although the FBI interviewing all the Wilsons' neighbors at the last minute, to see if they knew what the Mrs. did (they apparently didn't) could be a bad sign. (Anticipating and eliminating other possible sources.)

My favorite part now: Neos taking the side of the NYT and Time Magazine. C'mon, that's funny.

What's in it for McCain? It's the closest the party would let him get to the White House. Him and 'his' illigitimate black child. :wink:

As far as Miers goes, now we'll see them nominate a zealot like Luttig.
