Justice Department’s pro-family issues.

I, too often, get caught up in the details. It’s one of my weaknesses, and I get that. However, when it comes to our President nominating the folks who are about to interpret and enforce our laws, it is absolutely imperative we look at the meat, rather than the fancy packaging. Therefore, the details are warranted. The only real measure of what someone can do is from what they have actually done in the past. It was my same argument regarding BHO and his bid for presidency. We really don’t know what kind of president he’ll be, considering he had so little experience to judge him on. What we did see was one of the most liberal voting records in history. Now we can see what that means. Take for example three of Obama’s Justice Dep’t nominees.

David Ogden, nominated to serve as deputy attorney general, has built a profitable career opposing the laws he now would be expected to enforce — including obscenity laws.

Thomas Perrelli, Obama’s nominee to serve as associate attorney general, represented Terri Schiavo’s husband as he fought to have food and water withheld from his disabled wife.

Dawn Johnsen, who hopes to serve as assistant attorney general, is the former legal director for NARAL Pro-Choice America.

“The one thing Barack Obama’s nominees to the Department of Justice seem to have in common is a disrespect for human life," Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America.

My only summary really has to do with Obama’s history on nominations. So far, looking at his recent history, he is not good at making nominations. Let’s hope these three folks actually paid their taxes; wait, then again, let’s not. There are plently of better nominations out there.
