Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Another one of President Donald Trump's judicial nominees -- this time, to the powerful appellate courts -- has been deemed "not qualified" by the American Bar Association. Leonard Steven Grasz was nominated in August to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals and has his confirmation hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee this week. ... "In sum, the evaluators and the Committee found that temperament issues, particularly bias and lack of open-mindedness, were problematic," Pam Bresnahan, the chair of the ABA's standing committee that reviews nominees, said in the statement. "The evaluators found that the people interviewed believed that the nominee's bias and the lens through which he viewed his role as a judge colored his ability to judge fairly."

The ABA is pretty thorough on these reviews, good enough for me, let's see who the next candidate is after throwing this guy to the curb along with the guy from OKC.

That being said, this is not uncommon and in fact Obama had 14 of 184 nominees declared unqualified by the ABA in his first four years in office, which was more than both Clinton and Bush had, combined, in the previous 16 years.

This is exactly the kind of person Republicans want, being the -------- that they are.

What's funny is that the Republicans said the same thing about Obama's nominees back in 2011.

Trump needs to nominate a transvestite. Then the ABA will approve.

"Trump needs to nominate a transvestite."

Those are what we call judges, and they wear robes at work.

My point was your "transvestite" comment was idiotic. Did you miss that?

The one in the judges' chambers.

But keep spending your time wondering about those weighty matters.

I love how you are stupid enough to pretend that's all Obama ever did before becoming president.

They have to belittle Obama because a. he is black and b. they've finally got their "businessman" POTUS and it's a complete train wreck.

Some people worry about what people have under their clothes and legislate which bathroom they can use.

The rest of us worry about the people who are peeking through the cracks in the stalls to enforce their ludicrous laws
