According to George W. Bush, Sam Alito is less qualified that Harriet Miers:
Q 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.
Your President and First Lady wouldn't lie to Matt Lauer, would they?
Q You said she [Harriet Miers] is the most qualified candidate for the job -
THE PRESIDENT: As I told you.
Q -- would you agree with that?
MRS. BUSH: Absolutely. Absolutely.
