American Bar Association Deems Significant Number Of Obama Judicial Nominees 'Not Qualified' 1. WASHINGTON -- The American Bar Association has secretly declared a significant number of President Obama's potential judicial nominees "not qualified," slowing White House efforts to fill vacant judgeships -- and nearly all of the prospects given poor ratings were women or members of a minority group, according to interviews. American Bar Association Deems Significant Number Of Obama Judicial Nominees 'Not Qualified' 2. "But the association’s judicial vetting committee has opposed 14 of the roughly 185 potential nominees the administration asked it to evaluate, according to a person familiar with the matter. 3. The number of Obama prospects deemed “not qualified” already exceeds the total number opposed by the group during the eight-year administrations of Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush; the rejection rate is more than three and a half times as high as it was under either of the previous two presidencies, documents and interviews show. 4. ...the judges he has appointed have been more likely to be women or minorities than those of any previous president. 5. The committee has been more likely to deliver a harsh verdict about Mr. Obama’s prospects than it was during either the Clinton or Bush administrations. It has rejected about 7.5 percent of his prospects, compared with about 2 percent of the potential judges under each of the two previous presidents." http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/23/u...ps.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1&partner=rss&emc=rss You've heard of the three holes in the ground? Well, well, well. So, the Left which often complained that Republicans were 'outside of the mainstream'... seems the shoe is on the other foot...the Left foot. Seems four times as many of this Leftist President's choices for the bench are 'unqualified' as compared to President Bush's nominees. How could that be?? Could he be picking same based on...oh, I don't know....less than American values??? So....another area in which this blow-hard is a flop! (hey...did you see that the two reports above were from those noted right-wing smear machines, Huffington and NYTimes....wow!) Well, well, well.
