How many people besides me are feeling betrayed by the choice President Bush made for appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court?
I just could not believe it when I heard yesterday who he picked to succeed Justice Sandra Day O'Conner. He had a real chance to turn the court around and in my opinion he dropped the ball!
Cronyism. Plain and simple. I thought the Clintons were bad with the choices they made for top spots in their administration, and having worked for the dumbest and the lamest at the TSA, my eyes have opened wide as to how these people got their jobs.
President Bush gave up a real opportunity to leave a positive lasting legacy of his Presidency. I am more then dissapointed. I feel downright betrayed! I voted for him because I thought he was a strong decisive leader. He esentially did not want to fight with the Democrats and literaly threw in the towel.
I still insist that I voted for the right person. I could never with a clear conscience have ever voted for Sen. John Kerry, but as Republicans, we need to find a leader more like Ronald Reagan. Someone who isn't afraid of a good fight. Someone who will appoint strong people to high positions based on their experience and abilities intead of friendships and close ties.
I am sincerely hoping that Harriet Miers has an epiphany much like former Democrat Sen. Zell Miller and makes Chucky Schumer and Harry Reid shit their gizzards when she starts making decisions on the court based on the Constitution and not the advancement of Socialism from the bench like the ACLU's "ace up the sleeve" Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
What's next? Will there be another Pardongate? This is one time I am praying that I'm wrong.
