Do you expect him to say that his newest appointment positions the country WORSE for keeping communities safe, equal justice, etc.?

    Note that ending.....And, Ensures that every American experiences justice under the law. Again, just how does this confirmation do that?

    No I think he could have just went with.....she is qualified and that she will do the job to the best of her ability. Note, how that works.

    If you can't explain what you think he's saying and why you have a problem with it then what are you complaining about? Give an explanation. Spell it out.

    He's saying that she'll ensure that everyone gets treated fairly. Why are you bitching about this? What do you not understand?

    And, I said How does the Confirmation by the Senate ensure that. What part didn't you "still" get?

    So your mad that he said it "ensures" it rather than "she will ensure"?

    How petty does your side have to be to argue over such stupid semantics.

    There's a dozen people in here saying shes an affirmative action hire simply cause she's a black female (we've seen no evidence from the thus far) and you're angry over a semantics issue.

    Go figure.

    Basic grammar requires you to read the ending in context and modified by the introductory clause. So the relevant statement, in context, is this:

    "Loretta's confirmation ensures that we are better positioned to ensure that every American experiences justice under the law."

    It's a completely unremarkable claim. He's not guaranteeing anything. He says the country, with her, is better positioned to do that list of things:
    - keep our communities safe,
    - keep our nation secure, and
    - ensure that every American experiences justice under the law.

    If we as a country aren't better positioned, we're no better or worse positioned. What POTUS would say that for his newest hire? Yeah, she's OK, hope she doesn't make things worse....

    Bottom line is you're reaching here. Nothing to see. Politician praises incoming appointment, says she'll make things better. As predictable as night follows day.

    What part of "Obama never claims that her confirmation ensures anything" don't YOU get?

    Reading is fundamental!

    No I am not mad, that's something you make up in your mind when the confusion sets in. Well how petty does your side have to be when you turn the discussion to a poster and what you make up in your mind that Others are doing with what that poster said?

    Well I already mentioned that maybe we should get all the Historics out of the way. This way those excuses can all be used up.

    And you still won't even say what you find wrong with what he said.

    Keep focusing on those important issues.
