    Obama is about to name Loretta Lynch as the new Attorney General. Will the Republicans try to stop her due to her 20 count indictment against Republican Michael Grimm for fraud, federal tax evasion, and perjury?

    Obama could nominate Jesus himself and Republicans would still try to block the appointment.

    In fact they were blocking over a month ago before a name was even announced saying it wouldn't be "fair" to the incoming congress and we should just go without an AG or presumably any other vacancy until next year. As if congress isn't in session again until then.

    I heard on CNN that someone was upset because they didn't get enough advance notice of the nomination. Figures.

    I want to see how the GOP treats her confirmation hearing. I'm sure they think she's under qualified because of her gender and her race.



    And before anyone cries foul, please watch the video below.

    She's a nut. She also made some crazy statement about gays pounding homosexual thoughts into young people.

    And yet she won her campaign. It's no wonder the red states are the less educated, poorer, and more religious states.

    Loretta Lynch had a few interesting things to say during her confirmation hearing for Attorney General.

    CNN -- Marijuana, polygamy, torture: Lynch confirmation hearing (website link)

    Excerpts:

    Some Democrats raised war-related issues. Lynch told Leahy that she considers waterboarding to be torture, "and thus illegal."

    "I can tell you that not only do I not support the legalization of marijuana, it is not the position of the Department of Justice currently to support the legalization," she said. "Nor will it be the position, should I be confirmed as attorney general."

    "I believe that the death penalty is an effective penalty."

    And still the GOP is keeping her waiting. They seem to want to keep a man they hate employed. Got to have a villain. Got to keep those talking points!

    The GOP is ridiculous.

    It's only taken what, several months? I'm kind of curious to see how Congress will treat Hillary's nominations (yes I'm counting chickens, no they're not mine as I'd prefer a different non-GOP candidate).


    Where's Palandri been? He's been MIA from this section for awhile. Did he get tired of the limited discussions in here?

    I'm surprised that there is no time-limit on nominations.

    It would be interesting to see what Loretta Lynch would have done differently if she had replaced Eric Holder as attorney general earlier.

    Maybe she will put more police officers on trial for civil rights violations.

    Well, it looks like Loretta Lynch already has a tough assignment ahead of her: protests, riots, investigating accusations of police brutality, and handling possible civil rights violations. It's all in the job for the attorney general.

    Well, what do you think of Loretta Lynch when compared to Eric Holder?

    I thought it was interesting for her to ask for the renewal of the Patriot Act.
