President Bush does a newser at 10:30. We’ll be there.
I’m sure he’ll be asked about this. Not sure what to make of it. If Miers had no interest in the group’s endorsement, why bother? The answers in themselves don’t reveal much, beyond a sensibility that no one would appear to object to.
There is some pessimism about this nomination inside and outside the White House with current and former aides. But in the past 18 hours, the White House has done a good job of getting the right people talking about Miers. Given where we stood yesterday morning on this nomination, it’s fair to say we’ve moved over to the supportive side of things. Will go into specifics later, but there is now a comfort zone with Miers that we didn’t have a day ago.
This is the problem, however. This comfort zone is based entirely on personal relationships. Friends telling friends that Miers can be trusted, that she’s solid. There is nothing more. And that is a huge problem for the White House right now.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
