Bush Brilliant Strategic Choice of Harriet Miers

Far Left Expect Democratic Senators to Bork Bush’s Court Nominees. If the Democratic Senators won’t fight Bush, the far left predictably will attack the Democratic Senators.

President George W. Bush, once again, has demonstrated that he is a strategic genius. He has nominated his White House counsel Harriet Miers to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. This choice could cause considerable disarray in the Democratic Party driving a wedge between office holders and the party’s very liberal wing which includes its largest financial supporters.

Although Harriet Miers is a Sunday School teaching fundamentalist Christian, President Bush is catching flack from Republican conservative supporters since she may not be another Justice Antonin Scalia or Clarence Thomas. However, the damage done to the Republican Party will be slight compared to what is likely to happen in Democratic ranks. They won’t be able to help themselves.

Conservatives fear that Miers is another Justice David Souter, a Republican appointee who reliably votes with the liberal wing of the Supreme Court. Clearly the biggest difference is that while David Souter was an unknown New Hampshire Supreme Court Jurist to most, he was also a big unknown President George Hubert Walker Bush. How much of an unknown is Harriet Miers to George W. Bush? Their relationship goes way back: including being Bush’s personal attorney. She served in Bush’s administrations as:
1995-2000: Texas Lottery Commission chairwoman
2001-2003: White House staff secretary
2003-2004: White House deputy chief of staff for policy
February 2005-present: White House counsel

The lunatic Bush-hating portion of the Democratic Party will begin hating their inept Senators and withhold donations and, perhaps, initiate primary election challenges. President Bush’s strategic choice will be a gift that keeps on giving. Every Supreme Court decision with Chief Justice Roberts and/or Harriet Miers in the majority and the left will be reminded and seek their revenge again and again.

They will particularly going to go for the scalp of “Democratic Leader Harry Reid …
Mr. Reid had personally recommended that Mr. Bush consider Ms. Miers for nomination.” See Bush Nominates Harriet Miers in the Wall Street Journal October 3, 2005.
