    I gave you other examples too. States that have passed reform bills either led by republicans, or with strong bi-partisan support. And again Pete, this is representative of some republicans, the more libertarian Leaners and certainly not all.

    You pointed out that your friend was the "top" prosecuting attorney in her area, and so was Loretta Lynch.

    So far you haven't given a single reason as to why she was a bad pick other than that you personally think she was an affirmative action hire.

    If a white president appointed successive white appointees would you be crying racism?

    They were completely qualified candidates. The majority of his cabinet and appointed positions are white. But he's had two black in a row in one position? Well that just doesn't sit well with TD.That spot should be given to a white person. Because that's whats right.

    If anyone is curious as to why sometimes republicans get labeled racist, have a good read through of this thread.

    You see, there are thousands and thousands of qualified people for the job in this country, of all skin colors. That's why we have hearings, so we can get a little more insight into the person.

    She made it clear that she was not going to uphold the Constitution (small requirement), but that she would uphold Obama instead. She should not have gotten one vote. But, there's good ole' Congress, abdicating their responsibilities and passing her along.

    So, we have an AG appointee that won't do the job for us, but, lucky for her, we also have a Congress rolling over and playing dead, soooo....she's in! Another great moment of this administration.

    But you've lumped in programs that provide preferential admissions to students based on merit - jocks, chess masters - with those based on a rich daddy. They really aren't remotely comparable.

    BTW, I can't believe you're willing to put such terrible arguments in writing - you once knew a black female who was a complete idiot, so that means Lynch is also a complete idiot because, you know, Lynch is also black and a woman, and they're all the same..... Seriously? You can't believe that's an argument anyone serious will accept do you?

    And, no, it's not "lame" to assume that people with a long and accomplished career are competent and rose to those positions based on their merit.



    She graduated from law school in 1984. She has a 30 year career after that, TD. Unless you have some information you're not telling us, assuming that after a 10 year career in the U.S. Attorney's office, the last two as the U.S. Attorney, she (for example) was signed on as partner at a major law firm in D.C. and remained there for a decade as partner "solely" on the basis of her diploma hanging on the wall is, well, racist.
    why are you changing what the issue is. That is dishonest. I said she got the jobs because she was black. I doubt a similarly situated white would have been accepted into HLS or got her political positions

    If you're going to make this argument, and dismiss the entire career of a person because of how you assert they got into college, you really need to back off your support for AA for rich kids whose daddies graduated from the elite schools. To the extent legacy admissions got into college based in preferences and denied admissions to more qualified candidates, their entire careers are also illegitimate.

    The difference is legacy admissions needed help despite (generally) a lifetime of advantages that money buys - the best schools and teachers, test prep services, no need to work so can concentrate on extra curricular activities to pad the application, etc.

    Which explains your position favoring that type of preferences while opposing those not for your crowd.

    I would hope that rational and intelligent people judge policies by a bit more than is it good for their own selfish concerns.
