A FEW WORDS ABOUT PRESIDENT BUSH [Kathryn Jean Lopez]Um, what part of his-hand-was-forced do you not understand? If it were up to your Dear Leader Ms. Miers would have been on the bench, I think it's pretty clear that he really wanted her on the bench. Or do you think he was kidding when he said things like this:
You know what the relief is this morning? A return to the feeling that this president gets the big things right. There was a detour, but I’m confident we’re going to have good news shortly on SCOTUS, because this president tends to get the big things right. That’s the confidence so many of us have always had in him. And we may have been worried about our assessment for a few weeks there, but there's a renewed confidence this morning.
Q: So are you ruling it out, any withdrawal [of Harriet Miers]?Only K-Lo would see it as a sign of strength that he was bullied by his own party into nominating someone else. Perhaps she just received the new White House talking points?
PRESIDENT BUSH: No, she is going to be on the bench, she'll be confirmed -- and when she's on the bench people will see a fantastic woman who is honest, open, humble and capable of being a great Supreme Court Judge.
A note to "The Corner," get rid of "K-Lo" already, she even makes liberals like me wince in embarassment on your behalf.
