Time To Pull Together

OK fellow conservatives, it's time to pull together. We've had our day or so to question the President's nomination of Harriet Miers for the U.S. Supreme Court. We wanted a sure-fire conservative whom we know, and we don't know Harriet Miers. So we were cautious. Some were more than cautious; some decided that Miers was a bad choice.

Bill Kristol of The Weekly Standard said, "I'm disappointed, depressed and demoralized."

Pat Buchanan called the decision "deeply disheartening."

Ann Coulter called Miers "a complete mediocrity.”

I could go on, but you get the idea.

However, reports are starting to surface today that should encourage conservatives and disappoint, depress, demoralize, and deeply dishearten liberals.

Miers is reportedly a 25-year member of Valley View Christian Church in Dallas, Texas, an evangelical Christian church that preaches against abortion and gay marriage. Her minister, Rev. Ron Key says, "One of the things I admire about Harriet is she walks her faith in everyday life."

And this from Texas Supreme Court Justice Nathan Hecht of Austin, Texas, a church member and friend of Miers for 30 years, on Miers' personal beliefs on social issues.

She hasn't said a lot, but you don't go to a church for 25 years if you're not comfortable with what they think. I'm sure she's consistent with the church's position.

Lorlee Bartos , a former campaign manager for Miers when she ran for the Dallas City Council in 1989 said, "She is on the extreme end of the anti-choice movement." Of course we all know that "anti-choice" is liberal code for "pro-life."

Now, The Drudge Report is reporting that Wednesday's New York Times will run a page one story indicating that Miers is an evangelical, born again Christian who became a Republican after she accepted Jesus Christ as her savior and "began identifying more with the Republican Party than with the Democrats."

Now if that doesn't scare the far left, nothing will. It will also bring out the heavy artillery of opposition.

This confirmation might be much more difficult than what we thought when we first heard the name of Harriet Miers. Why? Because Harriet Miers might be exactly what Christian conservatives have been praying for, and what other conservatives have been hoping for. That's why it's time to stop the criticism; it's time to stop the whining. It's time for conservatives to pull together, prepare for battle, and do what we can to encourage the Senate confirmation of Harriet Miers.

Great job, Bryan!

I was cautious at first, but her nomination is setting better with me now that I know she's born-again.
