It’s about striving for excellence and basic competence.

Trump seems to deliberately trying to undermine government.

It may be that lunatic Bannon’s idea of "deconstruction" Trump is trying to do.


Destroy government by making it incompetent


Whoa.

Since when has government been competent?

What it really is, is that Trump is so toxic these are the only people he can get. Anyone who's even half way professional doesn't want to be tied to a sinking ship.

That's the elephant in whatever room Trump is in at the moment.

Courts are so screwed up, we have judges that think they make the law and people are not freaking over that, so why exactly should this horrify me?

Democrat or Republican neither has actually tried to fix any of the problems we are facing.


Yep! It's better to have Trump fanatics than Obama fanatics, as Federal Judges. From what I hear, President Trump's administration is WAAAAY ahead in getting Federal Judges confirmed, from where Obama was in his first year.

Was this the only guy who didn't run screaming into the sunset when Trump said he wanted to pick him? Because I have a hard time believing no one else was a better choice, people HAD to rebuked the association disaster with him for Trump to settle on this guy.

Doesn't bother me 1 whit.

After hillary as SoS, what difference does it make?

Hell, you voted for a substitute teacher for POTUS. Twice!

Relax, this will surely get Trump impeached.

The next question is how in the word did he rack up such a great educational background? Was he being groomed or sponsored somehow and by whom?

There's no way he could have "earned" a magna cum laude and all the support to be a judge. What and complete embarrassment. Certainly explains the news when crazy decisions are handed out by judges.

This country is in trouble. The curtains keep getting pulled back. Thank God for the exposure and the balance of powers.

Elena Kegan never held a judiciary position and she's a Supreme Court Justice.

Its not only that the guy doesn’t have experience, they asked him simple legal questions a law student knows he couldn’t answer

oh come one, how hard can it be to be a judge???
just act like you are listening to people, ask yourself what Jesus would do,
and order the baby be cut into two pieces and given to the opposing sides!!!

Kagan was a law clerk for Judge Abner J. Mikva of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in 1987 and for Justice Thurgood Marshall of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1988. Marshall nicknamed the 5 foot 3 inch Kagan "Shorty". She later entered private practice as an associate at the Washington, D.C., law firm of Williams & Connolly.

Kagan joined the faculty of the University of Chicago Law School as an assistant professor in 1991 and became a tenured professor of law in 1995.

sounds like she taught law, and probably has spent more time in the courtrooms, including the supreme court than this guy has!!! and I bet ya, she could have answered all those difficult questions that stumped him.

Trump distorts things. He makes the term maverick an embarrassment.
Because he’s a lazy bum…he has false intuition that never pans out.

He has no wisdom, knowledge, useful information since he has the ear of bigots.

Sure a refreshing novel idea and a maverick for president would have been something good

But not Trump…he’s not that person

He has spoiled any future for a true maverick

I'm not sure Trump is even checking into these people. Just whatever favor a senator or member of his cabinet owes is considered a 'recommendation.'

Two Trump judge nominees out after criticism


Talley indicated he was prepared to withdraw from consideration after coming under criticism for a lack of experience and for failing to disclose that his wife works in the White House counsel's office.

The official added that the nomination of Mateer, who ran into trouble over extreme statements about transgender children, "will not be moving forward."


Shockingly, the Republican majority doesn't seem to care about checks and balances. Anybody Trump puts up is ok by them.

its because those people were undoubtedly chosen by the republican party themselves. it seems to me that many people seem to have a large misconception on what a president does and has the ability to oversee. these are choices made by people in the machine who then lay them on the desk to be picked from by the president
