Letter to the Editor
During the nomination of John Roberts various Republican related groups were running TV ads supporting Roberts and saying that he shouldn’t be required to answer questions. The also demanded an up or down vote on the nomination. Now Harriet Miers is the nominee and I don’t see the Republicans running ads urging that she get a fair process. It seems the Republicans have a different process for nominees they like and nominees they don’t like. If Roberts was urged not to answer questions an get and up or down vote then why should Miers nomination process be different? After all – this isn’t the first Bush crony sent to the Senate for approval.
I think the real reason Bush appointed Miers is because he needs someone he can call from jail who will get him out.
