Thursday Thoughts

I read this morning that President Bush's approval rating is now below the 40% level. This is not shocking. The nomination of Harriett Miers is an unmitigated disaster. It is a huge unforced error to coin a tennis term. He did not have to do this. He could have nominated a solid conservative justice with a proven track record, but he made a calculated political decision to pick another female version of David Souter. Yes that's right, Miers is a female version of David Souter until written evidence proves otherwise. Bush wants us to "trust him". Let's go him one further. Let's "trust, but verify" in the words of the great one Ronald Reagan. We need evidence. The White House doesn't have it. That's why Bush is tanking in the polls. Movement conservatives are bailing on the President because he isn't much of a conservative.

You can probably guess who I think is benefiting from all this right now. That's right, Jim Gilchrist. He is a real conservative. The nomination of Miers and Bush's falling approval ratings are just making Jim's job easier to persuade the people of the 48th CD to vote for him.

    Delecia Holt is the only female Republican, African-American candidate that ran for the 48th Congressional District as a write-in candidate. Delecia's website is www.voteholt.com

    It is commendable for someone to try to create change within the political structure. For someone to spend their own monies and send out 600,000 mailers
    Devote their time and effort to run for any public office against a well funded political machine such as Campbell and to do so as a write-in candidate shows a true commitment to the people of California and the United States of America.

    I hear she is planning to run for Campbell's state senate seat in the event he wins his bid for Congress. Governor Schwarzenegger and Campbell could use the Republican female minority vote. Especially, since she is also of Spanish decent. Something to think about!
