Getting Out of a Mess

October 13th, 2005 · 1 Comment

Peggy Noonan has a pretty good article about how Bush might want to get out of this Miers mess (registration required). I’m not the greatest fan of this nomination for various reasons but am not going to throw a fit like so many other conservatives. This whole episode is an absolute disaster. Could Bush have done better? YES! Could he have done worse? Can you say David Souter, I mean Alberto Gonzales? This didn’t need to occur and there is a lot to blame to go around but now it needs to end. Miers needs to step down! Instead of something that could have worked out too many conservatives have muddied the water that it’s time to cut the losses. Personally, I think she’d probably have become a solid conservative vote on the court but now it looks like she might not even get confirmed. Time for a “do over” and a choice of a Scalia or Thomas clone.

    They made a serious mistake when they tried to defend her to the base by reminding them that she is a Christian.

    They cannot, in the future, insist that the focus remains on qualifications rather than personal beliefs, faith, or associations–at least not with a straight face.
