Back to the Future

Bush I on Clarence Thomas:

[H]e is the best qualified at this time. I kept my word to the American people and to the Senate by picking the best man for the job on the merits.

Bush II on Brownie Miers:

Q Thank you, Mr. President. Mr. President, of all the people in the United States you had to choose from, is Harriet Miers the most qualified to serve on the Supreme Court?

THE PRESIDENT: Yes. Otherwise I wouldn't have put her on.
