I don't know much about her....

I do know that Conservatives don't like her...neither do Liberals.

As far as I can tell, the only reason the Liberals don't like her is because Bush nominated her....I'm not really sure why the Conservatives don't like her.

I hate to be uninformed...so can somebody fill me in?

Some conservatives fear she's the next Souter.

You're dead on about the Liberals.

She was on the Texas Bar Association or something. She's never been a judge, but I guess she knows the law. I don't think many people know much about her, but I can garantee that you will know more about her than you ever wanted to by the time this is over.

I honestly don't know what the problem is with Souter.

His views seemed to shift a little.....but over time, I would assume that everyone's views change....I don't have all the same political views I had 5 years ago.

You live....you learn...you change.


Also, I dislike Bush as much as anybody....but I really don't see why anyone should be against her just because he nominated her.

You can argue that he has a bad track record with nominations...but its not fair to hold that against her.

I've been researchin her since I made the thread...

Apparently she was the first woman president of both the Dallas Bar Association and The Texas State Bar....

Maybe its me, but I think that makes for an impressive resume.

Lmao...too true. Bush could nominate Bill Freaking Clinton for a post and the Libs would hate on him like BuckNasty at his Grandmama'a third wedding. Blind Hatred is a defining characteristic of Libs lately. Back in the day we used to call that 'prejudice.'

I think everyone is not thrilled about her nomination because she hasn't been a judge and I guess she'll be the first person ever to be nominated for supreme court judge without having a single day of experience as a judge. At least Roberts deserves that spot.

I think she is also in charge of the texas lottery. I know I've seen her there.

BuckNasty is a charter member of the Player Haters Club. As I understand it, so is Warren Beatty.

I don't know why the Conservatives are pissed. I love my man Buchanan, but his finger hasn't actually hit the pulse since the late 80s so I wouldn't buy too much stock in what he's saying...although he is friggin' brilliant, so I wouldn't exactly discount it, either.

On a side note, I'd just like to say that this is a perfect illustration of the fact that the Conservatives have something the Libs never will...dignity. The Conservatives are pissed about this Meier chick, but noone knows why. That is because Conservatives don't get on a fucking soap box and shout their opinion to anyone in earshot!!! It's because Conservatives actually understand that their opinion isn't necessarily shared by everyone, and just because they believe in something doesn't make it a univeral truth. It's because Conservatives aren't Socialist Pigs and they understand that not only do other people sometimes have other opinions, but the fact that they do is the root of diversity and it's something to be cherished and celebrated, not scorned blindly.

Ahhhhhh, it's good to vent.

I don't know exactly who, but I'm certain this isn't the first time a person who isn't a judge was nominated...nor would she be the first member of the Supreme Court Judiciary who hadn't presided over a courtroom.

One of Dubya's many failures is cronyism. This is a perfect example.

Way to fuck your base, Mr. Bush.

Still I think her nomination is not very wise. And not becase the Bush said she is a good candidate but her legal experience is not THAT vast like his previous candidate.

Come on Trev...this is W we're talking about. We're not talking about a veteran Public Official with decades of service and experience under his belt. We're talking about Joe SixPack who's father just so happened to be the Prez way back when and was handpicked by the Old Men In Charge because he had the ability to raise money and win.

The guy's doing lines off the Oval Office desk and says to his flunkies, "Get me someone who we can get in and out of the confirmation process as quickly and painlessly as possible. I'm tired of seeing my face and/or name in headlines."

The only problem I see with her is that she has no experience as a judge. In my mind if you're going to be nominated for the highest position in any field, you should at least have some experience in it. Roberts, I thought was a fine choice for chief justice. But I'm not sure about this new one just yet.
