White House Tries To Chill Out Religious Conservative Repubs.

Today Bush and his Cronies at the White House defended his nomination of Harriet 'I'm a tool' Miers, saying that she is highly qualified, someone who would strictly interpret the Constitution, a trailblazer in law in Texas, and a religious person.
"People are interested to know why I picked Harriet Miers", Bush said. " They want to know Harriet Miers' background. They want to know as much as they possibly can before they form opinions. Part of Harriet Miers is her religion."
That comment pissed off us critics of the nomination because it's being used to sell Miers to the right-wing conservative base. Bush expects us to trust him and support his nomination because she's religious? All the more reason not to support her.
James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, said that Karl Rove reassured him that Miers was an " evangelical Christian from a very conservative church, which is almost universally pro-life."
Nut-fuck Pat Robertson, who endorses Miers, said, " They're going to turn against a Christian who is a conservative picked by a conservative president and they're going to vote against her for confirmation? Not on your sweet life, if they want to stay in office."
How can we be surprised anymore that a self-proclaimed conservative who "talks to Jesus" made a decision( or told to make one) that pushes this country farther away from the ideals put forth by the founders?
Religion needs to stay the hell out of goverment and the White House, as well as the Supreme Court. Bush is trying to erase the line drawn between church and state. Harriet Miers' only qualifications, in Bush's eyes, is that she is a religious conservative who will probably go against her own sex and vote to reverse Roe vs. Wade.
