[b] The smear campaign begins. Democrats are PETRIFIED of conservative minorities.
Anti-death penatly bias colors this entire article. I am against the death penalty myself, but forgive me if I'd reather read the memos myself, and not rely on the interpretations of another person.... [/b][/quote]
I would like to read them too, but they are not available.... [/b][/quote]
They shouldn't ever be available. They should be confidential. Some anti-death penalty guy is taking snippets from a report compiled by another guy, and using words like "ugly" and "disturbing." I mean, it's so transparent as to be laughable. It's a smear campaign. The Senate can ask Gonzales any question they want to ask him. What they did to Miguel Estrada is deplorable. This is yet another smear. They smeared Clarence Thomas and tried to shame him out of his nomination - you are probably too young to remember that and likely have only read about it from biased sources. It was delporable when the GOP did it to Clinton and it is deplorable now.
Democrats are PETRIFIED of conservative minorities. The GOP's share of the hispanic vote has been rising steadily - as more and more hispanics become successful business owners, managers, etc - since many more hispanics are less susceptible to hand-out pandering as they begin to acheive.
The country elected Bush, and Gonzalez is his choice for AG. He is a highly respected lawyer in good standing with the National Bar Association, who has never gotten into any trouble. The Senate would do well to confirm him without much grandstanding..which I think they likely will.
