p>From what I’m gathering on the blog, no one is very happy over
this latest Bush nomination. I’m beginning to think that she is a
compromise candidate in exchange for Roberts’ confirmation. Bush
seems to be happy keeping the status quo (5-4) on the bench but
then again, maybe we’re in for a pleasant surprise. I say this from
past experiences where we thought we had a good conservative
nominee and ended up with a closet liberal. Maybe this time we have
a born again conservative candidate who has seem the error of the
liberal mindset and will help bring the bench back to what it was
intended to be. Could it be George has blown it or is this one of
the shrewdest political moves he has ever pulled? Whatever the case
may be, it promises to be interesting.
President Bush had a chance to change history for the better.
Instead, he chose a poorly qualified political pal who contributed
to Al Gore’s 1988 campaign, spent money on Bentsen, and never
served as a judge or legal scholar.
Bush’s presidential career will be summed up as: giving the
store away in education to please Ten Kennedy, passing an
ill-defined and unlimited-cost Medicare prescription benefit
shoring up the sagging career of Senator Specter paving the path of
Hurricane Katrina with gold — our gold, and wrecking the U.S.
Supreme Court just as effectively as daddy Bush.

one who will undo the damage of the two Bush administrations.
