Loretta Lynch is on the sidelines (or ‘on the back of the bus’ as Dick Durbin says) waiting to get confirmed as Attorney General to these United States of America. McConnell has some stipulation that Congress better approve some bill against human trafficking first; something about abortion funding. Why, I don’t know.
-So, yesterday, Obama called the Republicans “embarrassing” for holding Lynch’s confirmation up.
-Some have staged a hunger strike for her confirmation.
-Yesterday afternoon, some Black women confronted McConnell about it….no word about any White women doing that (smile).
-Staffers are wearing black arm bands signifying FREE ERIC HOLDER (brother, would we love to). He has the nerve to joke that the Republicans have a ‘love’ for him because they aren’t letting him leave..”Where has this love been the last six years, ya know?” (don’t worry, Eric…trust us; It ISN’T THAT)
– I’m surprised that Dick Durbin hasn’t suggested something really raunchy about the Republicans, doing some word play with her last name since he apparently believes this is all about race.
-Harry Reid says her background is “spotless”…. which really gives me pause.
SO….I say all this to ask you SHOULD LYNCH BE CONFIRMED? WILL OBAMA EVER GET OVER THE FACT THAT HE DOESN’T ALWAYS GET WHAT HE WANTS BECAUSE HE WANTS IT?
My own opinion is it’s sad that the Democrats have to bring race into it, and they are; so are the Black women fighting to get her confirmed. So is Obama…but what else is new?
She is going to be confirmed. Why not vote on it TODAY?
Let’s talk about it/her/these articles………anything that comes up.
We know she won’t be for us ALL (black and white) unless she’s a very special woman because we know the kind of Black Americans Obama appoints don’t seem to see anything but color, but let’s hope…………
