    Why Are Conservatives Nervous About The President’s Supreme Court Pick?

    Published: Wednesday, July 6, 2005

    Conservative leaders everywhere are frenetically attempting to "rally the troops." The reason? They are engaged in an all-out lobbying effort to convince President Bush to select a pro-life, conservative Supreme Court nominee to fill the vacancy being created by the retirement of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

    However, what's all the fuss? Should not conservatives simply relax? After all, they have been telling us since G.W. Bush's first presidential campaign back in 2000 that he was a true believer, a genuine conservative. Therefore, since Bush is a real pro-life conservative, what is there to worry about?

    Does anyone not find it strange that during the two most recent election campaigns our illustrious conservative leaders minced no words to convince us how "true blue" George Bush was? They repeatedly assured us that when Bush was elected all would be well in Washington, D.C. They promised us that he would appoint genuine, pro-life judges. They emphatically assured us that G.W. Bush could be trusted to do the right thing!

    Then, why are conservatives now practically panicked in their efforts to lobby the White House to do the right thing? Why do conservatives feel they need to lobby this "true conservative" president to appoint a conservative? Is there not something wrong with this picture?

    You and I both know the answer. Our conniving conservative leaders know full well that G.W. Bush is NOT a true conservative. He has repeatedly compromised the life issue (and virtually every other conservative issue) with impunity. His commitment to conservative principles is about as deep as the roots of a weed.

    Furthermore, the smart money is on Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to be Bush's nominee. Bush is literally gaga over this guy! Plus, insiders have often acknowledged that Dubya wants to be the president who appoints the first Hispanic to the Supreme Court. Being that Gonzales is not pro-life, and has a very dubious record on conservative issues in general, conservatives have good reason to be worried.

    It would just be nice if conservative leaders had the character and integrity to tell the truth about George W. Bush. If Bush were really the genuine conservative that he is made out to be, there would truly be no reason to try and bombard the White House with letters and phone calls. If Bush were a true conservative, could he not be trusted to do the right thing on such a monumentally important decision?

    That conservatives are running around likes ants on a dead roach reveals their true feelings. They know Bush is a compromising neocon that must be intensely pressured to do the right thing, and even then, seldom does the right thing.

    So, for now, conservative leaders are begging us to help "convince" President Bush to pick a person that, were he the true conservative he is reputed to be, he would instinctively pick.

    I'm really getting bored with this game!
