Don't Fall for Left Wing Spin

Here's an important reminder that every Republican and every conservative must be careful not to fall for the junk coming from the left wing spin machine -- thereby becoming complicit in the smearing of fine judges like Janice Rogers Brown.

Apparently, Harry Reid intends to oppose Judge Roberts. That should be all the reminder that anyone needs . . . any Bush nominee will face opposition. So if there's to be a fight, let's make it count.

After all the repugnant charges of racism that have emanated from left wingers like Jesse Jackson, it would be interesting to see the public reaction to Charles Schumer's attempts to manhandle a fabulous nominee like JR Brown. Would it then be time for Democrats to worry that perhaps the African-American vote is more politically open-minded than they have previously believed?

On the other hand, wouldn't it be pure pleasure to watch Janice Rogers Brown so politely take apart Chuck Schumer, with all of the eloquence shown by John Roberts?

Schumer attacking Brown would not help Republicans among African Americans because the vast majority feel that conservatives of whatever race are not really concerned about black people. The GOP must REACH OUT and EXPLAIN that liberalism has hurt minorities and that conservative ideas will help.

During the Roberts hearings, Kennedy and Leahy gave eloquent opening statements which included talk of the importance of civil rights and equal opportunity. I heard nothing similiar from the Republican senators (although I did not hear all of the opens).

The GOP may want more black support, but it won't come by default. We'll have to get it the old fashioned way: earn it!
