Please shut up about Harriet Miers.
Harriet Miers was not nominated for the post on the Supreme Court that went to John Roberts. Harriet Miers was nominated for the post that went to Samuel Alito, after conservatives had this reaction to Harriet Miers:
So please stop all references to Miers vis-a-vis the ObamaCare ruling, such as “Harriet Miers would have voted against this,” or “Second look at Harriet Miers?” It’s idiotic. If Miers was on the court, Roberts would have done exactly as he did do.
And why so certain that Miers would have voted with us? Remember why we didn’t want her in the first place? I’ll bet you anything you like she’d have been spooning with Ginsburg, and we’d have had a 6-3 decision. Alito voted with Scalia, Thomas, and Kennedy.
John Roberts either betrayed us, or wussed out. He’s the problem. Winning the Presidency and Senate while retaining the House is the most viable solution.
