How Much Clearer Does He Have to Be?

Bush denounces court wars, rules out 'litmus test'

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - President Bush on Wednesday said he will not choose his Supreme Court candidate based on their position on specific issues such as abortion or gay marriage.

"I'll pick people who ... will strictly interpret the constitution and not use the bench to legislate from," he said.

Under pressure from opposing activists to pick someone who would either uphold abortion or work to outlaw it, and legalize or outlaw gay marriage, Bush ruled out any such "litmus test" in making his choice.

"There will be no litmus test," he said, repeating his position during his 2000 and 2004 presidential campaigns."

As I said before, before, those of us on the right, who want to see Roe V. Wade overturned need to 'chill' a little.

President Bush said he would nominate someone who he felt was a strong conservative. He also said over and over again he would NOT use a litmus test to pick a nominee. So what are we doing expecting him to pick someone based on a "test"?

We have cried foul with the Court being "activist" towards the left, yet it sounds like we dont' mind if they are activists, so long as they "activate" on our side.

From the beginning President Bush has said he would NOT pick a nominee who "legislates from the bench"! How can we not expect him to keep his word?

Again, we would need at least two more strong conservative appointments and THEN a case that challenged the "core right" of a woman to abort her baby, would need to be brought to the Court again.

As much as I would like to see it happen tomorrow, it will be years before this would realistically happen.

That's why I said, "Patience". Yes, babies are dying everyday, but they have been slaughtered everyday since 1973.

President Bush's nomination is but a "first step". We waited fourty-years to have this opportunity, rushing could jepordize our victory in the future.

Patience

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
