Default Questions arise over Obama's pick for Justice post

Here we go again, obama scrapes the bottom of the barrel and chooses the most radical, racist person he can find for a position to head the civil rights division of the Justice Dept.

Does obama know anyone who isn't racist?

Questions arise over Obama's pick for Justice post | Fox News

Quote:
Critics of President Obama's nominee to head the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division have described Debo Adegbile as “radical,” “dangerous” and “outside the mainstream.” Now he is facing heated criticism for his role in getting convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal's death sentence overturned during his time as a lawyer with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF).

Abu-Jamal was convicted of the 1981 killing of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner.

Adegbile was asked about the case during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week and replied, "It's important, I think, to understand that in no way does that legal representation, zealously as an advocate, cast any aspersion or look past the grievous loss of Sergeant Faulkner."

It's almost like how questions arising over anything that Stalin did just didn't show up in Pravda, Izvestia or Tass isn't it?

The National Fraternal Order of Police are livid about this...

Apparently, a hotbed of Fox viewers, right Mikeyy?...

Police protest Obama nominee, cite Abu-Jamal case

Quote:
A national police organization and a Pennsylvania lawmaker are protesting President Barack Obama's nomination of a civil rights attorney for a U.S. Department of Justice position, citing his legal work on the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal.

In a letter to Obama, the National Fraternal Order of Police expressed "extreme disappointment, displeasure and vehement opposition" to the nomination of Debo Adegbile to be assistant attorney general for the department's civil rights division.

Adegbile headed the Legal Defense and Educational Fund of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People when it volunteered to represent Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner, the police union said. Adegbile and others "turned the justice system on its head with unfounded and unproven allegations of racism," said the union's national president, Chuck Canterbury.

UPDATE

"Debo Adegbile" has now replaced "Barak Obama" as the name most likely to be mistaken for a seedy smuggler in a Star Wars novel.

Update -



Seven Democrats (and all Republicans) that DON'T have to go back to their state's FoPs and explain why they voted for a defender of a cop killer...

Senate rejects Obama appointment of Debo Adegbile to top civil rights post

Quote:
Opponents of President Obama's nominee to head the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division prevailed in blocking his confirmation Wednesday, as he failed to clear a procedural hurdle.

Eight Senate Democrats, including Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.), joined with Republicans in voting against Debo Adegbile, whose nomination was adamantly and vocally opposed by conservatives due to his participation in an appeal filed on behalf of Mumia Abu-Jamal -- an internationally-known prisoner convicted of the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner.

The vote was expected to be close -- with Vice President Biden on hand to potentially cast a tie-breaking vote -- but the final tally was 47-52 in opposition to the appointment.

Reid initially voted for Adegbile, but he switched his vote to no, giving him the right as Senate leader to bring up the nomination again at a later date.

Adegbile becomes the first Obama nominee rejected under the new Senate procedures approved in November that require just a majority of senators present to agree to proceed to a vote on most presidential nominees.

Other Democrats who voted against the Obama nominee were Chris Coons (Del.),Bob Casey (Pa.), Mark Pryor (Ark.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Joe Manchin (W.V.), Joe Donnolly (Ind.) and John Walsh (Mont.).
The fact that the vote was "expected to be close" is an abomination...

I'm new to all this so help me out. Does this mean those seven Democrats are racists just tryin' to bring an honest, hard-working, black man down?

"Questions arise over Obama's pick for Justice post" ?

It's all in the script to question this.
