Richard Viguerie, a right-wing political operative, expresses his great disappointment with Bush’s nomination of Michael Mukasey to head the DoJ. “The fact that President Bush caved in shows even more political weakness considering his willingness to claim and flaunt executive powers of questionable constitutional authority in other circumstances,” he writes. “This nomination is an invitation to liberal Democrats to run rough-shod over the remainder of Bush’s politically weakened presidency. Bush is now the lamest of lame ducks.”
UPDATE: More anger, this time from Mat Staver of the Liberty Counsel:
Whenever Senator Schumer from New York not only recommends this individual as an attorney general, but also, a few years ago, put forth his name as a possible person to go on the United States Supreme Court, that ought to automatically give everyone pause.
