The Fight Is On

President Bush has answered the fight, or started it. Was this the plan all along?

Nominate Miers as a trojan horse candidate then when she steps down name the promised candidate “in the mold of Justice Thomas and Justice Scalia”?

Now comes Judge Samuel Alito, who meets the Presidents promise to the point that he has been nicknamed “Scalito”.

The Miers nomination fueled much resent from not only the Democrats, who will not be satisfied unless a radical activist far left wing is named (see Ginsberg), but a lot of Republicans joined the desenting voices.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Monday that he is "disappointed" in the pick of Alito in that he is not a "consensus nominee".

A letter from Democrats to President Bush had all but threatened a filibuster, something that was supposed to only happen under "extraordinary circumstances", which is what they called the Miers nomination at the very beginning of said letter. Reid is also on the record having said, "The nomination of Judge Alito requires an especially long hard look by the Senate because of what happened last week to Harriet Miers,"

The Democrats have cast a glove to the Presidents feet.

President Bush was elected under the promise to appoint a Judge in the mold of Thomas and Scalia. Now Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., demands President Bush pick someone in the "mold of Sandra Day O'Connor, who would unify us."

Under what pretense do the Democrats continually claim to represent the “mainstream” when they continue to lose seats due to their radical positioning? Having become the minority, they attempt to usurp the people who oust them from office in each election, using childish tactics like claiming racism, creating un - constitutional filibusters, name calling, etc.

Again the truth is that Democrats are losing power, except in the Supreme Court where their activist left wing Justices have been legislating to the Democrat agendas and special interests. Abortion, property rights/”eminent domain”, and other cases that the judgments handed down have raised the ire of the people.

They fight to keep the only power they retain, the only power the people who are the real “mainstream” cannot vote out of office. The Democrats really want another Ginsberg while calling for an O’Connor who was a “moderate” that more often than not sided with the far left agenda.

Watch the fight and lets see what agendas are pushed. You can bet abortion quickly becomes the main topic much as it has with Chief Justice Roberts, and Harriet Miers.

Was the Miers nomination a fake nominee to fire up the Republican base to fight for someone like Judge Alito? Lord knows that the Roberts nomination and subsequent confirmation showed little fight from the Republicans, and compared to this seat and the upcoming fight the Roberts confirmation was a cakewalk.

I eagerly await not only Judge Alito to show to all of us who he is, but for him to get that chance. Something that Harriet Miers never received before the Democrats began the name-calling, and mud slinging.

The name-calling has already started; Alito is not left enough for the Democrats.
The challenge issued, the glove has been tossed at the Republicans feet, let the duel begin.
