Obama is bitch slapped by the Senate by SEVEN Democrat Senators who voted against his nominee!!! Obama is a lame dick president!!!

Senate blocks Obama nominee over Mumia Abu-Jamal case
Susan Davis, USA TODAY 1:48 p.m. EST March 5, 2014
A former attorney for Mumia Abu-Jamal could not overcome GOP and law enforcement opposition to his nomination to run the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division.

Debo Adegbile was nominated by President Obama to run the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division
Law enforcement groups opposed his nomination over his work on behalf of Mumia Abu-Jamal
His nomination was blocked Wednesday on a 47-52 vote, with seven Democrats siding with Republicans

WASHINGTON--The U.S. Senate narrowly defeated President Obama's nominee to oversee the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division due to Republican and law enforcement objections to the role he played in the defense of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

In a statement, Obama called the defeat a "travesty based on wildly unfair character attacks against a good and qualified public servant."

Only 47 senators, all Democrats, voted to advance Debo Adegbile's nomination while 52 senators voted to block him, including 7 Democrats. Vice President Biden presided over the vote in the event he could break a tie, which was unnecessary after Democrats failed to muster enough support. Obama said "those who voted against his nomination denied the American people an outstanding public servant."

The Democrats voting to block the nomination were Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, John Walsh of Montana, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Bob Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania, Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Chris Coons of Delaware. Coons, Pryor, and Walsh all face re-election this year. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., also voted against the nomination in the end, but only for procedural reasons that will allow him to bring it up again if he so chooses.

Adegbile's defeat occurred even after Senate Democrats last year unilaterally changed the Senate rules on judicial and executive nominations to lower the threshold from 60 to a simple majority of votes to end a filibuster. He is the first Obama nominee to lose on the floor over Democratic opposition.

Democrats, lawyers groups and civil rights activists hailed Adegbile as one of the nation's leading civil rights attorneys with impeccable credentials honed over two decades in the profession. He has worked as an aide in the U.S. Senate as well as the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and has argued two civil rights cases on voting rights before the Supreme Court.

"There is no question about his competence," said Senate Minority Whip Richard Durbin, D-Ill., prior to the vote.

However, his nomination prompted fierce backlash from the law enforcement community because he once worked on the defense team of Abu-Jamal, who was convicted for the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police office Daniel Faulkner. Adegbile was part of the NAACP legal team that is partly credited with commuting Abu-Jamal's death sentence.

In a statement, Coons said he did not doubt Adegbile's qualifications but that he could not overcome concerns about his ability to do the job. "I was troubled by the idea of voting for an Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights who would face such visceral opposition from law enforcement on his first day on the job," he said, "The vote I cast today was one of the most difficult I have taken since joining the Senate, but I believe it to be right for the people I represent."

Speaking on the Senate floor, Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., noted that Adegbile's work on the case began 25 years after the murder occurred and credited Adegbile's work on protecting constitutional rights. "He's a fine man, what a story of the American Dream. He's devoted his life to public service," Reid said.

Faulkner's widow, Maureen, lobbied senators to oppose the nomination. "Old wounds have once again been ripped open and additional insult is brought upon our law enforcement community in this country by President Obama's nomination of Debo Adegbile," she wrote in an emotional letter, "Certainly there are others with similar qualifications that would be better choices. I would argue that Mr. Adegbile's decision to defend a cop killer should preclude him from holding any public position."

The Philadelphia Inquirer, which exhaustively covered Abu-Jamal''s conviction and appeals, strongly disagreed in a Tuesday editorial. "To argue that Adegbile, one of the country's foremost legal scholars - especially when it comes to civil rights law - should be disqualified from the Justice post because he participated in Abu-Jamal's appeals is an affront to what it means to live in America. This country allows every convict to exhaustively appeal a verdict, even when all the prior evidence appears to have assured his guilt."

No, no assumptions. All hard facts. You Libtards assume that a white person is a bigot and that black people can never be a bigot when way to often, it is the exact opposite.

Nope, Joe O'Biden. Hey, did you see Obummer Boys new "Disapproval" Rating? Only 38% now approve of Obama which means only Dummycrats approve of him

Fox News poll: Obama's approval hits new low
By Dana Blanton Published March 05, 2014 FoxNews.

President Obama’s job approval rating hits a record low this week, as a majority of Americans say his administration has mostly failed at growing the economy, creating jobs, improving health care and the country’s image.

That’s according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

For the first time in a Fox News poll, fewer than four voters in ten -- 38 percent -- approve of President Obama’s job performance. Fifty-four percent disapprove. Before now Obama’s worst job rating was 40-55 percent in November 2013. Last month 42 percent approved and 53 percent disapproved (February 2014).

Er, yes, I saw Obama's approval or disapproval rating, Rogue. Do you think it looks bad for him for 2016? Oh, sorry, he's not running. Neither was GWB running when his disapproval rating hit 17%. Do you think Obama will ever sink that low?

Can't hide your love for :Putin, can you? You do know, now that we have close to open war with Russia, and being pro-Putin and anti-Obama, you are inching closer and closer to being a traitor. Putin is strong, he invaded Ukraine. So was Hitler, he invaded Poland. Strong man. You would've loved Adolf.

Rogue, do tell us, as you have criticized every single move Obama has made on anything. Now it's Ukraine.

We've asked you many a time, and the only response we've received took the form of a lame joke.

On Russian invasion of Georgia, on Syria, on Ukraine, what would YOU have done?

McCain, whom I like , said today that Putin was emboldened on account of the U.S.'s (read Obama's) past lack of resolve. I wonder. What lack of resolve? Where? When?

Jacques,
John McCain is on shakey ground himself.
Wasn't he the goof who was caught singing acapella the words "Bomb, Bomb Iran" and I quote, as a corruption of the Beach Boy's smash hit "Barbara Ann", I ask.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know the United States has very little leverage to wield in the Ukraine's internal affairs with Mother Russia.

White? May have helped get those 4 or 5 extra votes.

So, not one single Repub thought this guy was right for the job. Just like not one single repub thought Obamacare was no good. Not one single one? Hmm. As for the Democrats, they do have this knack of shedding solidarity and self-destruct. They will split on principle. The Repubs, on the other hand, will stick together even when grossly wrong.

The UN, Vatican & Freemasons all want the Temple on the Mount for their NWO.Kenyan-born, bisexual, Moslem Obama is the Antichrist & 100% Italian Jesuit Pope Francis is the False Prophet. There are over 800 prison camps in the United States. All fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards. But they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States and all it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation. Why does the US government need 30,000 Guillotines and over 600 Million rounds of hollow point bullets?. AND 9/11 WAS an inside-job(false-flag event) too. I hate Big Brother.
