John Fund of the WSJ doesn't name his White House source on this, and of course the possibility remains that it's entirely mistaken:

"[B]usiness may not be getting quite what the White House packagers are touting. ... One White House source says the positions she took in staff meetings might surprise her business supporters. He said she leaned conservative on social questions and liberal on economic issues. Bruce Packard, a former partner at Ms. Miers' law firm, also cautions that she may be more complicated than people expect. 'She is very reticent to ever discuss her own views and liberal on issues other than abortion,' he told me."

Ramesh Ponnuru adds: "Of course, business doesn't always deserve to get what it wants from the Supreme Court." On Miers's appeal as a "pro-business" nominee, see also Gordon Smith and Larry Ribstein.
