    Re: Senate confirms lynch as attorney general. 10 "republicans" vote for her

    When ranting about "affirmative action" hires, why don't they ever mention some guy named Clarence Thomas?

    Question 1: Why does Thomas condemn affirmative action if he benefited from it?

    Thomas was born in poverty in rural Georgia but managed to gain admittance to Yale Law School. He acknowledges that he made it to Yale because of affirmative action but says the stigma of preferential treatment made it difficult for him to find a job after college.

    In his memoir, "My Grandfather's Son," Thomas says he felt "tricked" by paternalistic whites at Yale who recruited black students.

    "I was bitter toward the white bigots whom I held responsible for the unjust treatment of blacks," he wrote, "but even more bitter toward those ostensibly unprejudiced whites who pretended to side with black people while using them to further their own political and social ends."
    <snip>
    If affirmative action is so bad for its recipients, how come you've done so well?

    "His entire judicial philosophy is at war with his own biography," said Michael Fletcher, co-author of "Supreme Discomfort: The Divided Soul of Clarence Thomas." "He's arguably benefited from affirmative action every step of the way."
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    Why would I admit I was wrong? The circumstantial evidence speaks for itself. It is way too coincidental that within hours after Limbaughs show a half dozen posters start mimicking his words. Deny it all you want. The evidence speaks for itself.

    I do wonder at the seeming inability of some folks to speak about their political opponents without the use of juvenile rhetoric; e.g. "Obamatard" when mentioning a very successful attorney

    The 5 Most Interesting Cases of Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch’s Career

    Appointed U.S. Attorney by President Clinton in 1999 and again by President Obama in 2010, Lynch would bring a wealth of expertise to the DOJ -- the Harvard-educated lawyer also served as a member of the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and was a litigation partner at Hogan & Hartson L.L.P.

    Even so, Lynch is an unconventional choice for the Obama administration – she is not part of the president’s inner circle and remains doggedly low-profile.

    1. United States v. Volpe
    Lynch was a member of the trial team that convicted several NYPD officers involved in the torture of Haitian immigrant Abner Louima in August 1997.

    2. United States v. Nafis
    Lynch also prosecuted a string of accused terrorists, including Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, a Bangladeshi man convicted in a sting operation of attempting to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in October 2012.

    3. United States v. Farrukh Baig et al
    In June 2013, Lynch announced a major immigration bust at more than a dozen 7-Eleven stores in New York and Virginia.

    4. United States v. Sanderlin
    Lynch’s office handled the prosecution of so-called “pot mom” Andrea Sanderlin, a wealthy suburban woman who in June 2013 was accused of running a $3 million, 1,000-plant marijuana operation she called “Fantastic Enterprises” out of a warehouse in Queens.

    5. United States v. Michael Grimm
    Lynch also led the investigation of Republican Rep. Michael Grimm, NY, who was indicted in April on 20 counts ranging from tax fraud to perjury to obstruction of justice.
    Hmmm, for a woman who supposedly is "pro illegal immigration" she seems to have successfully led at least one illegal immigration case. Then there's the fact that two of the cases listed appear to have been filed against Muslims.

    Maybe you're just mad she went to Harvard and you didn't. The jealousy of the right on display, yet again.
    why would someone who went to Yale be upset about someone going to a less college

    You all just hate to admit that affirmative racism was what drove her selection (to several positions)

    when the GOP realized they were going to get to replace the first black Justice, White House associate counsel Keisler and Liberman approached Senate Majority leader Mitchell to inquire how the GOP could avoid another Borking. Mitchell told Peter Keisler that the GOP had to pick a black candidate

    CT was the best available judge they could pick who met the racial requirements of Mitchell

    its the Democrats are why CT was appointed.

    Yes he benefited from AA. The Dems are to blame for that

    You were busted and last night you sat on this thread for at least 15 minutes after I proved I was consistent

    I bashed the twit when she was first announced and then I consistently continued the same line of attack when she was finally confirmed. You just cannot believe anyone would come to the same conclusion without "help"

    which is a damning attack on the sheeple mentality of you on the left who project group think to us on the right

    I thought it was considered Historic too. Wonder how many FOIA's he was holding off too.

    So, we will have to go thru this all over again once we get an Asian AG, man and woman.....huh? Then an Indian AG, oh and course then the Ultimate AG. One that is a Muslim.

    Should we get this over with quickly so that we can end all the Historic bs and then be left to focus on their records and not playing lapdog?
    Well, I was already thinking about their records.

    We'll put aside racism and bigotry when we end affirmative action. Why are you so opposed to judging people on merit?
    Even if she did get their by AA, (and you can't prove that) she's made a good career from her education, and has a qualifying resume. And she's AG now.

    Please tell us how you know this, other than she's black, and obviously only whites can win jobs on the merit?
