    Oh that is a bit hyperbolic. Though she clearly got into college and Law school with a huge assist from affirmative action, she did pass the bar and that requires she be able to read. Obama can read and the fact that he was Magna cum laude at HLS proves that. However, a white with Obama's academic credentials would not have been accepted into HLS the year he was

    Careful, she is going to accuse you of "pulling the race card"...

    And you cannot make a pacifist, draft dodging, deserter hippie become secretary of defense.

    A president should have a large level of independence for picking his team, but not without oversight. And that is no matter who the president is, democrat or republican, the choice must be a reasonable one or the senate should block it for that reason (not to play political games).
    ...a draft dodging deserter????? interesting.

    Your hyperbole here does you a disservice. Of course, she can read; she's been U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York for years--lots of reading.

    I'd like to see your evidence that Lynch is an "affirmative action baby." (And Republicans taking bribes too.) If she is, that's certainly a topic for discussion...but not when you make a silly and inflammatory remark.

    Thank God, we as a people, had the foresight to recognize the incredible pool of talent that would have otherwise been held back had we not created a path for those people to have that talent flourish. I could not have made a better argument FOR affirmative action than you have made for us. Well done!
    Very well said.

    I think Lynch is a poor but entirely predictable pick. But you're making an important point, so thank you.

    yes, why didn't Obama appoint another white guy; there's plenty of them
    instead, he considered candidates of other races, too
    it's almost as if he does not understand white privilege needs to be promoted

    Looks like the right isn't nearly as partisan as I thought. Nearly but not all.

    You should be ashamed by youR avatar that makes the first lady look like a monkey. I can't believe that is allowed here and will be complaining to the mods. I would hope the rest of those posters with a shred of decency would follow suit.

    Just because she's black and female doesn't mean she got where she is via affirmative action. You apparently don't believe there are blacks or females that can rise by their own merits?

    will i empathize with your views, i do not agree with them
    that forum member has every 'right' to present him/herself as any of the rest of us
    that you do not like it should not cause his presentation to be censored
