Comments on Mier’s withdrawl

Hugh is in anguish bout the Mier’s withdrawal.  Story at NYTimes.

David Frum in The National Review Online celebrates the Mier’s withdrawal. 

The Mier’s withdrawal from the Supreme Court nomination shows one thing very clearly.  It shows that the fear and dread of the left is to totally unfounded. 

From the left we constantly hear stories that George W. Bush is an evil all powerful president.  But this situation shows this idea is clearly unfound.  George Bush could not get his judicial nomination through the selection process.  This points out clearly that the president has much less power than most people think he does.  In fact the president is not even in control of the political party that generally supports. 

I also believe this in the shows that conservatives do indeed yield very significant power in the political realm.  What this means is conservatives have to be held accountable in all areas of political influence.  This means in the area spending in the area of policy and the area of judicial selections. 

I have been pretty silent on the whole Mier’s selection process because I was waiting for the system to work but I must say on this one I lean more towards David Frum’s position.  Isn’t political discourse fun?


About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
