Bush on Miers.

Link to CNN Transcript

Tim: Oh, great. Don't tell me we get to "discuss" her again.

Pat: Oh, no. You can sit back, relax, and pretend it's 2002 again and you have a politically strong president.

Tim: As opposed to your perpetual-minority party?

Pat: Whatever. Here we go. I took the liberty of editing a few words here and there.

Yesterday, I nominated an outstanding crony to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States. Over the past three decades, Harriet Miers has built a stellar record of accomplishment in serving me.. She's been a model of service to me.

I've known her for more than 10 years. I know her character. She's a woman of principle and deep loyalty to me.

She shares my philosophy that judges should strictly be picked from my inner circle.

I appreciate the reception that Harriet's gotten among me. I expect the Senate to conduct fair hearings and to do the next best thing to putting me on the Supreme Court.

Tim: Look, Rehnquist wasn't a judge either. Nearly a third of the appointments this century have been from inside the inner circle.

Pat: I wonder how much she knows about Arabian horses?
