As noted in an earlier post epic fail obama’s nomination for the Ninth Circuit Court of appeals is completely unqualified to be a JUDGE. Much less an appellate court judge.
Yet the Senate Judiciary Committee appears bound and determined to force feed this sorry excuse of an attorney to we, the American people.
Republicans on the committee demand a delay in the scheduled April 16 hearing for Goodwin Liu, a law professor at the University of California, Berkeley. The committee this week received almost 120 items that Liu omitted from an earlier background questionnaire.
Consideration of Liu’s appointment to the US Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit is a warmup for the debate over a Supreme Court replacement if Justice John Paul Stevens decides to retire this year, said Curt Levey, executive director of the Committee for Justice in Washington and a critic of Liu’s confirmation.
With the announcement that Justice Stevens will retire this summer it is clear that judicial battle lines will be drawn. Further, that we will have to live with these idiots in power for years to come. But what the heck? They are all probably just as qualified as obama is…
