Bush nominates Harriet Miers. I heard, on Fox News, that Laura Bush told President Bush that she thought a woman should be on the court. And, I heard, on the news, that Harriet Miers took a stand and stood out on CHOICE during her career (Pro-choice).  She is not a strong pro-lifer.

It seems that she is a very good choice!

We will just have to wait and see if she is the best person for the job...

I am not a big advocate for my gender... I do not necessarilly think a woman would be good for a job.. just because they are a woman.

I do NOT think that a woman would be good for President of the U.S. just because she is a woman....

Actually a woman would have to prove themselves to be more qualified than a man would.

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

I don't agree with that over here in the UK we had Margaret Thatcher as Prime Minister and no one messed with the Iron Lady lol ..just like any man if she has the qualifications and determination a woman can do any job a man can!!

Sadly that is the case with most jobs!!

Some women might be right for a high level position like that.. but women as a rule let their emotions guide them...

I am just saying that I do not get all excited and say (in my prissy woman voice of course) "Oh wow... a woman is running.. I will vote for her.. just because I believe in women's rights... and think a woman should be in office"....   rolleyes.gif

Nope.. a woman would have to make me believe that she could do the job.

I know that sounds weird coming from a woman... but .... I have been known to be too honest and harsh.

I hope he didnt nominate her just because his wife said she would like to have a woman.

If so, its still a step forward happy.gif

Sadly, women have been so qualified, even over-qualified, for the job (or jobs) and not gotten it. disgust.gif This is't about "just a woman for the job", it is about a wonderfully qualified woman getting the job!

And helping our nation raise women in society.





......the conservatives are mad. I love it! Bush came through, I was beginning to wonder if he would, after hurricane Katrina.

p.s. ...Remember Laura Bush was a democrat before she met the Bush clan. wink2.gif

In my opinion, bush had no choice but to nominate a woman or a minority. If he were really progressive he would have nominated a black woman for chief justice.  thumbsup.gif

Of course he had a choice, his job is to nominate whomever he feels is the most qualified regardless of color, or gender. To do any less would be the same as Affirmative Action placing people in positions based completely on their skin color or gender, a plan I was always in complete disagreement with. I believe to much emphasis is placed on these criteria instead of on the qualifications of the nominee. Kind of a reverse discrimination. Now lets hope that this nominee gets the up and down vote they deserve instead of a long drawn out affair.

Sorry.. but I don't hate myself... actually I LOVE myself.. and think I would be great for any job!  thumbsup.gif  (so don't think you know me)

But other women ... most of them wouldn't...

I said I am not an advocate for women... because most women think they are owed something... and most women would vote for a woman... just because they are a woman.. and not because they are the right person for a certain job.

Plus.. women as a whole are weak.  I am not... i have been through lots of challenges in my life... and have come out on top.. and pretty darn tough.

Who cares if she's a woman.  She will suck just like the rest of them.  Get the power out of the judicial branch.  They are not there to make laws, yet they have the power to do so and use it as such.

Mmmm.. not at all.. I guess that would depend on if you are one of those women who say poor me...  hmm.gif

I am just saying... If a woman runs for President... I will not vote for her just because she is a woman.  And I know a LOT of women who would.  Just because they feel that it is due time that a woman became president.

And yes.. I still believe that a LOT of women are weak emtionally.  Not saying all.  I actually do not have many women friends.. because I get so tired of ... the pitty party that most women portray.  I have about 4 close women friends, and they feel the same way I do.

I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

Yes, it's true that a woman seems to have to prove herself as being even more qualified.  I think that is sooo wrong.  Everyone....Yup, men included...should have to prove their worth!!


Just because you do or don't have certain sexual organs doesn't make you more or less qualified.  People who judge on the basis of gender are really doing themselves a BIG DIS-SERVICE!!!  I've seen women be more competent then men, but then again I've also seen them fail just as badly.

Competency has nothing to do with gender.  It has to do with abilities, attitude & work ethic.  Anyone can be good at their job if they have good abilities, the right attitude & a strong, stick-to-it work ethic.  So we shall see how see does.

Also in reading some of the posts....women aren't the only ones who let their emotions get away with them.  How many men have beat the #e!! out of another guy just cause he looked at his girlfriend or made a comment about her?  I personally know several.  So men can let their emotions get in the way also.  No human is perfect.
