    Robert Bork "Borks" Miers - Calls Choice Of Miers "A Disaster On Every Level"

    Legendary conservative jurist Robert Bork is "borking" Bush Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers, trashing her nomination as a complete and total "disaster."

    Asked by MSNBC's Tucker Carlson Friday night if he was impressed by Ms. Miers, Bork replied: "Not a bit. I think it's a disaster on every level."

    The Yale-trained judge said he didn't like the Texas attorney because she hadn't developed a "constitutional philosophy."

    "It's a little late to develop a constitutional philosophy or begin to work it out when you're on the court already," he told Carlson. "I'm afraid she's likely to be influenced by factors, such as personal sympathies and so forth, that she shouldn't be influenced by."

    The renowned legal scholar said he was also worried that Bush's decision to pick someone whose views were on key issues were so unclear was "a slap in the face to the conservatives who've been building up a conservative legal movement for the last 20 years."

    "All of those people have been overlooked. And I think one of the messages here is, don't write, don't say anything controversial before you're nominated."

    I saw that interview, neither man had anything really positive to say about her. Bork thinks she'll get confirmed because she hasnt written anything, or really done anything to pin against her. Guess we'll have to wait and see, I havent really heard anyone come out say what a great choice she is (other than Ohall of course )

    Maybe thats because no sitting judge could ever be confirmed given the lefts stated desire for a fight based on idealogy. Bork should know how tenaciously and vigorously the left latches on to any thing they perceive as adversarial to their platform, rightly or wrongly.

    Personally, it's quite an astute move by Bush. Hopefully she holds the constitution as dearly and faithfully as Rheinquist did. I'm sure he knows.

    That's because he was replacing a CON in Renquist.

    Not at all....maybe you need to see Kennedys quotes again? If they could have found something to latch onto their attack would have been ruthless

    At first he was replacing O'Connor and there wasnt a lot of opposition so it isnt just that he was placing a CON.

    Sorry my friend, Bush named Roberts to replace Renquist and that stopped some DEM's plans to go after Roberts. They most certainly were already digging in. They were basically saying he was a racist.
