Religion reason for Miers pick?

This is getting a little surreal. Today President Bush said part of why he picked Harriet Miers is her religious beliefs. I opined just hours ago that her confirmation was pretty certain unless she says out loud she will vote to overturn Roe. Well, if this keeps up, we may be in for a train wreck in the hearings. “Miss Miers how do you religious beliefs figure into your views of abortion?” and so on…

I will wait to read more from other sources given that this is reported by Nedra Pickler. According to the report, Bush said: “People are interested to know why I picked Harriet Miers,” Bush told reporters at the White House. “Part of Harriet Miers’ life is her religion.” I would like to see the context.

  1. And here was I almost about to agree that it was simply because her “talent, experience and judicial philosophy make her a superb choice to safeguard the constitutional liberties and equality of all Americans”… [1]

    I guess if her religious beliefs are reason enough to appoint her, this means they are also reason enough to reject her. Jeez, I had really hoped the World wouldn’t come to that.

    But, you now, Dobson’s got the inside scoop… and that alone should reassure me.
