A lack of enthusiasm by Republican senators for President Obama’s candidate to replace Eric Holder as Attorney General suggests her appointment might actually be threatened.

To be confirmed by the Senate, attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch only needs four Republicans to support her nomination. But it is unclear where those votes will come from. Sen. Orrin Hatch (Utah) is the only Republican so far who has signaled his intention to vote for Lynch, though several others have spoken favorably about her.

    If she can not plainly state that she will abide by the Constitution and duly passed law and will not support un Constitutional attempts to defacto create law then she must be passed on for that sated reason. That is the Congresses fiduciary responsibility, to do other would be to abandon that responsibility.

    Let Holder remain where he is or leave, the president and his Marxist agenda must be confronted and be roundly rejected. 703 days, 9 hours, 57 minutes and eighteen seconds left from now until we can begin to be remedy this offensive un American left turn that is Obama.
