Both Sides of the Same Coin

The toxin that spews forth from the elite on the right astounds me. To listen to the pundits on the right that are crying about the President's choice of Harriet Miers for the Supreme Court you would think that Bush has changed parties or switched positions on his opinions about abortion or gay marriage. Nothing is further from the truth.

I understand the intense desire to put a constitutional scholar of the magnitude of Scalia on the court and shove it up the liberals nose. When two positions on the SCOTUS became available I, like many conservatives, was smiling with glee and saw the golden opportunity to finally change a court that had become a liberal bastion of social change and activism.

The President is fulfilling his promise to appoint judges that will interpret law and not legislate from the bench. All indications indicate he has done a great job of that and has been consistent in his appointments. What is there about the nomination of Harriet Miers that gives any kind of indication that he has changed his philosophy? I have heard all the arguments from pundits and the self-appointed guardians of conservative values and I reject their arguments. The vile poison they are spewing will do nothing but hurt the party, give the liberals and democrats more ammunition in the mid-term elections and further alienate the base of conservative supporters. PLEASE HEAR THIS LOUD AND CLEAR! It was the ELECTORATE that put Bush in office and NOT the elite pundits. Whenever the liberals and democrats complain and whine about Bush the pundits are always the first to remind us that Bush won the election and that he has the right to chose whomever he wishes for any post he has the authority to appoint for. WHAT'S DIFFERENT NOW?

The President does not have to pick anyone according to the pundits requirements and there is nothing anywhere that requires an appointee to have judicial experience. If the attacks on the the President keep up, the base may become disenchanted even further and we will lose what ground we have made in Congress. THIS IS A MARATHON! This is not a 100 yard dash.

The elite pundits are acting like spoiled brats at Christmas that didn't get exactly what they want. Have we conservatives become so drunk with perceived power that we whine and throw a temper tantrum when we don't get our way? Shameful. I can't tell the difference between loud-mouth, whiny, liberal elites and loud-mouth, whiny conservative elites.

Go see what Impacted Wisdom Truth has to say about the whiny pundits. Also check out Hugh. He's been the voice of reason in all of this.

Elitism is elitism. They are both sides of the same coin.
