Skip to comments.Obama Throws Hissy Fit Over Failed DOJ Nomination
Posted on 03/05/2014 7:04:33 PM PST by rightwingerpatriot
The Obama administration is smarting over having egg on its face after the US Senate failed to confirm the nomination of Debo Adegbile for the head of the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice. In a stunning defeat after Harry Reid changed the rules were a nomination could now pass on a simple majority, the final tally was 47-52 against Adegbile. Democrats even brought in Joe Biden to cast the tiebreaking vote in order to confirm the nomination. However, seven Democrats (most likely looking at the upcoming midterm elections) split and voted against the nomination.
When Obama nominated Debo Adegbile for the post, it immediately raised an uproar from the law enforcement community. Adegbile worked tirelessly on behalf of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who killed Daniel Faulkner in 1981 in front of four witnesses and later bragged about the murder. Adegbile worked on behalf of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund who used the same old tired racial rhetoric to get the conviction overturned. Many critics of Adegbile believe the he took the defense of Abu-Jamal not on legal defense grounds, but rather to foster and promote a political cause.
Even more disgraceful is that Faulkner's widow, Maureen Faulkner, was not allowed to testify before Congress about the nomination of Debo Adegbile. This is a sickening aspect of how liberals think and act. A murderous cop killer is celebrated and documentaries are made about him, but the murdered cop and his family are treated like garbage and silenced. Maureen Faulkner showed tremendous courage and dedication and personally reached out and contacted many senators to express her disapproval of the nomination.
Obama made this nomination through the lens of his own twisted ideology. This was a direct thumb in the eye to law enforcement. When news of the failed nomination reached the White House, Obama had a hissy fit and released a statement that was more befitting a teenage girl angry over how Twilight ended as opposed to being the president of the United States. Obama said, "The fact that his nomination was defeated solely based on his legal representation of a defendant runs contrary to a fundamental principle of our system of justice -- and those who voted against his nomination denied the American people an outstanding public servant."
The American people were not denied an outstanding public servant. They were saved from yet another far left nutjob who views the law and justice only through a liberal race-based lens where murderers are victims and the true victims are deserving of their fate.
Did he stamp his widdle foot?
Oh oh. Might be time to pull sneaky tricks based on the IRS records he’s obtained on his ‘friends’.
I’ve noticed an uptick in the number of race-related comments coming out of Democrats lately. Has anyone else?
Oh noes, the American people were denied another tyrant who hates white people and thinks its A OK to murder cops, I think somehow, some way we will find a way to move on with our lives, I for one am ordering a pizza to celebrate this Marxist Commie prick being denied
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
obama does not know one honest person.
Obama doesn’t agree with the bi-partisan vote.
But he threw the Second hissy fit...we threw the first one! Scared Em didn’t we?
I hope someone is keeping track of all the radicals Zero has managed to find work for in DC, so when we are rid of the idiot we can have a major house cleaning.
Yep. Couldn’t get another one of his comrades or fellow Muzzies into position for the coup and hostile takeover. So sad. Somebody please kick the Muslim imposter to the curb.
So sorry. Let’s party!
So der 0berFuhrer emperor 0bama was not pleased! I fully expect the tyrant bastard to declare that he is by- passing congress and putting his butt-boy in anyway, knowing full well that the weeper of the house boehner and his idiot hillbilly cousin mcconnell won’t do anything.
“and those who voted against his nomination denied the American people an outstanding public servant.”
Bahahahahahah!! Yeah, right!!
......I hope someone is keeping track of all the radicals Zero has managed to find work for in DC, so when we are rid of the idiot we can have a major house cleaning.....
I hope Obama gets some of those shovel ready jobs to erect more lamp posts in DC, I don’t think there are enough to clean house with.
