Meirs' Base of Support

While it seems that virtually everyone, left and right, objects to the Harriet Miers nomination she has one base of support. The one group that Republicans are guaranteed to serve, big business, supports her. The Christian Science Monitor looks at Miers’s support in the business community. “Not since Richard Nixon tapped Lewis Powell in 1971 has a president picked nominees with as much corporate experience as Chief Justice Roberts and, more recently, Miers.”

I think this tells a lot where Bush’s real priorities are. Hopefully those who repeatedly vote Republican in opposition to their economic interests will also see this, regardless of the comments he makes to please them.
