More Comments on Harriet Miers
(PHOTO: Bush and Miers on Bush's ranch. Extra credit: Fill in a caption for this photo. Mine? Bush points to sun while standing next to White House Council Harriet Miers saying, "warm").
GOI: Bush claims today that he has never asked her opinion on abortion rights.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush said Tuesday he has never discussed abortion with White House counsel Harriet Miers, his nominee to fill the Supreme Court seat of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.
"Not to my recollection have I ever sat down with her [to discuss abortion]," Bush said in his first solo press conference since May.
I am bothered about this nominee when she is described as so much of loyalist that she has been described as Bush's "work wife." Which makes her sound like she spends more time with him then his own WIFE!!
This is as close Bush could get to placing either himself or Cheney on the bench.
Also, Bush claims to still have political capital proving that he does not understand the concept that one can not spend capital while having a negative account. No wonder we have a ballooning deficit!!!
He said (Bush) he still believes he has "plenty" of political capital available among lawmakers and will use it to approve a budget that is "fiscally responsible."
