Ironic

Democrats, especially those with extreme leftist leanings, always want to portray President Bush as an extremist who will take away civil rights. Does anyone notice that he is the only president to have appointed 4 blacks to cabinet level positions? When did a democrat do that.....oh yea, Clinton with his surgeon general....who quit. Colin Powell is secretary of State, Alphonso Jackson is Secretary of Housing and Urban development, Rod Paige is Secretary of Education, and lets not forget Condoleeza Rice as National Security Advisor. Lets not leave out the other minorities on the cabinet. Elaine Chao is secretary of Labor, and Norman Minetta is secretary of Transportation. Show me a democrat that has appointed so many women and minorities to positions ofpower in the federal government.

And rumor has it that he may appoint Clarance Thomas as the Supreme Court Justice. Other speculation has it that if ole Rummy steps down (he's 72) then Dr. Rice might be offered Secretary of Defence. That would really be something!

Well Here we go. Not only has he nominated Gonzalez for Attorney General, but he has nominated another latino, a man not even born in the States, talk about the American dream.

"IT'S DR. RICE, NOT DR. DRE"

In light of their reaction to the nomination of Condoleezza Rice as
secretary of State, I gather liberals have gotten over their enthusiasm for
multi-culturalist milestones. It's interesting that they dropped their
celebrations of the "first woman!" "first black!" "first Asian!"
designations at the precise moment that we are about to get our first black
female secretary of State. When Madeleine Albright was appointed the FIRST
WOMAN secretary of state, the media were euphoric. With Albright at the helm
of the State Department, Osama bin Laden ran wild throughout the Middle
East, the North Koreans began feverishly building nukes under her nose, and
we staged a pre-emptive attack solely for purposes of regime change based on
false information presented to the American people by Albright about a world
leader who was not an imminent threat to the United States. Slobodan
Milosevic wasn't even a latent, long-term, hypothetical threat. More:

COULTERGEIST

“When Madeline Albright was appointed the FIRST WOMAN secretary of state, the media was euphoric. . . . But Bush nominates a brilliant geopolitical thinker (Condoleezza Rice) who happens to be black and female and all of a sudden she's Butterfly McQueen, who don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' no Middle Eastern democracies. . . . Apparently, liberals believe Rice
compares unfavorably to Madeline Albright, whose principle accomplishment before becoming secretary of state was managing to attain the age of 60 without
realizing she was Jewish…

“Or how about Clinton's first secretary of state, Warren Christopher, a lawyer whose dazzling foreign policy experience consisted of being President Carter's chief negotiator for the hostages in Iran? That's almost as impressive a resume entry as ‘Chief Iceberg Lookout, the Titanic,’ ‘Senior Design Engineer, the Edsel,’ ‘Navigator, Exxon Valdez,’ or ‘Writer/Executive Producer, 'Alexander.' “

I think that when people say 'Erode Civil Liberities" they do not mean "Civil Rights".
And, I have read several articles about "Condi" in magazines, portraying her as a strong, smart, healthy woman. It even dawned on me that the Republican party may be grooming her as a potential Presidential candidate . . .did someone say Hilary might run?
Civil Liberties are so gaurded by many (as they should be) to prevent the effect of erosion, you know, a little here, a little there. The fear baiting that arises is pointed at the concern that one day we all will wake up one morning without a bill of rights.

I accept that as an explanation. Rights vs Liberties. However, there are those on the left (NAACP for example) who still like to make Bush out as a recist and a divider along racial lines (commercials in Texas against him when he did not support hate crimes legislation) and he has done nothing but the reverse with the number of minorities he has put into place in high level positions. In addition he did not just do it in his first term, he has continued it into his second term.
As for Civil liberties being taken away....I think that is a myth too.
