    Can't figure out if it's democrats you don't like, or Democratic black lawyers, but it's hilarious how you create arbitrary standards that you don't apply to anyone else in political positions, conclude Holder and Lynch fail your made up and arbitrary standards, then pretend like you've made some point other than you don't approve of Obama's picks.

    It might be easier to say you don't approve. This tack just makes you look petty.

    This is where the defense attorney says, "Objection, Your Honor. Assumes facts not in evidence."

    DOES ANYONE BELIEVE that these two successive black appointees to the AG office were the best and the brightest attorneys Obama could find in the Department of Justice?
    Who would you say would be a better pick?

    If that's me - can't remember what posts I liked - I don't care enough to admit or deny. What was funny is how the right wingers all jumped in with the same BS, which took various forms of "she is black, therefore unqualified and an AA pick."

    TD: " I will have to do some checking on her since her wiki article is really thin"

    TD: "another affirmative action poster child who has spend almost 40 years getting positions solely due to her race"

    So you don't know anything about her, except she's a black woman, which obviously means she has achieved NOTHING in life other than being a black woman. Not sure if that kind of lazy thinking came from Rush Limbaugh, but it's dumb enough to! Or even from one of his less talented and more wingnut imitators.

    BTW, got a link about those LSATs and grades. I'm a bit confused.

    NONE of the blacks who were accepted at Harvard for the class of 1984 were as qualified as at least 2000 white males who were turned down at that school
    Admittedly "as qualified" is a little subjective so I'm not sure it's possible to cite evidence for such a claim. But this IS specific:

    In the year she applied to Harvard law-over 1000 white men and 200 or more white women had higher GPA/LSAT scores (and were rejected) than the top scoring black woman.
    One time it's 2,000 white men who were "more qualified" but later it's only 1,000 white men with better scores than any black woman. It's almost like you're making up numbers.... Anyway, love to see the links.

    It's not a dodge. AG is a political job. No POTUS in recent history has started a search for AG with "find me the best and brightest attorney in DOJ." Two different jobs, two different skill sets.

    And you know exactly nothing about how she got any of her jobs. You just look like a bitter right wing hack making claims like that.

    With a republican majority in both houses there is no reason for Lynch to be confirmed. A politician's votes says what they support. Apparently Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Susan Collins (Maine), Jeff Flake (Ariz.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), Rob Portman (Ohio), Thad Cochran (Miss.), Ron Johnson (Wis.) and Mitch McConnell (Ky.) support Eric Holder in a skirt and his nonsense.


    Senate votes 56-43 to confirm Lynch as attorney general | TheHill
    Ten Republican senators broke ranks and sided with Democrats to get Lynch over the 50-vote threshold: Kelly Ayotte (N.H.), Orrin Hatch (Utah), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Susan Collins (Maine), Jeff Flake (Ariz.), Mark Kirk (Ill.), Rob Portman (Ohio), Thad Cochran (Miss.), Ron Johnson (Wis.) and Mitch McConnell (Ky.).
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Oh there are dozens. I already mentioned one who was in the DOJ. Do you believe that she was the best pick?

    Maybe you're just mad she went to Harvard and you didn't. The jealousy of the right on display, yet again.

    She's doing the bidding of her boss, Obama - who's stance on illegal's is well known as is his plans to allow illegals to continue to come into the US, contrary to the law. She will do as much as she can to support her boss' view as well as bend the law or suggest more executive action that can skirt the law without blatantly breaking the law.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Any attorney who worked for the Bush administration and has been vocal in supporting the most far-right agenda possible (although "possible" seems to be reaching new levels of derpitude every day)
