I completely disagree with this. Miers may or may not have been a good nomination, but if he withdraws the nomination there is not a snowball's chance in hell that one of the people the conservatives would have preferred will get through the weak willed Rinos in the Senate. The only chance of getting a strong conservative in when Stevens dies or retires is to stand strong for Miers and get her confirmed.
The security implications of this are frightening, but I think our military is up to it, and I agree this would be a wonderful idea.
Very good idea
I agree completely.By embracing the across-the-board spending sequester in the House before it disappears, Mr. Bush at a stroke would become the de facto leader of an effort that would sweep away the ill will of a spending record that for now dilutes his legacy.
