Dobson in commune with Bush, Rove.

Why did George Bush and Karl Rove confer with the likes of James Dobson (a far right evangelical) regarding the appointment of Harriet Miers when they did not even bother to meet with members of their own party or Congress prior to the nomination?

According to Dobson, that information included "that Harriet Miers is an evangelical Christian; that she is from a very conservative church, which is almost universally pro-life; that she had taken on the American Bar Assn. on the issue of abortion and fought for a policy that would not be supportive of abortion; [and] that she had been a member of the Texas Right to Life."

Also, of note, apparently their short list got much shorter as they queried others about the job and no one wanted to be nominated by Bush. So, I suppose, it finally got short enough that they 'had' to take Miers. This is a very sad state of affairs.

George, ever thought about expanding your search to actual qualified candidates instead of focusing on just the women's choice issue?
