Today's WTF Moment: Please explain this Obama nominee to me

I'm rushing off, but I'd love to get your comments on this one. Via Think Progress:

President Obama nominated a very odd candidate to be the next U.S. Attorney in Utah, the chief legal advisor to the Senate’s most radical tenther, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). [...]

  • Will Barlow Vigorously Protect Seniors’ Right To Social Security? 
  • Will Barlow Vigorously Protect Seniors’ Right To Medicare? 
  • Will Barlow Enforce Child Labor Laws? 
  • Will Barlow Enforce Food Safety Laws? 
  • Does Barlow Believe That The Constitution Requires The Poor To Starve?
  • Does Barlow Believe That Federal Disaster Relief Is Unconstitutional? 

Please read the entire post at TP. Then come back and give us your feedback.

What is President Obama thinking? Why would he nominate someone like this? Anyone?

    No. I think President Obama knows what he is doing. We just don't know. I think he can be trusted. We don't have to approve, but he is looking at it from a different perspective that we will. I trust him with this. He knows what he is doing.

    "What is President Obama thinking? Why would he nominate someone like this?"

    Exactly...and I, like so many have defended and defended. And I'm continually left scratching my head.

    I'm tired of defending and I most certainly will NOT work as hard for him next year (as I did the last vote...hell, I spent a lot of money that I did not have.) Sure...I'll vote for the Dem. But it will be more of a vote for a Dem vs. vote for a frack'n crazy Thug.

    I think that the way I will focus my attention is to get info out about the Thugs and help people to vote, mainly against the Bullies.

    whole lotta assumptions being made here on real limited information. I have enough real things to get mad about without getting apoplectic about this

    I am less surprised on a daily basis at the actions of this President. I understand that someone else did the vetting of Barlow but the President must involve himself in these appointments. I believe he trys to avert Senate filibusters more than necessary.
    The President should let the Republicans filibuster every one and than take it to the people to show how they are thwarting his election in 2008.
    He has been a weak leader since the summer of 2009 and I am sorry that I did not work for Hilary Clinton in the primaries.

    Because, again, he's not a very good President. I've finally opened my eyes to the truth. I defended him over healthcare, I defended him over extending tax cuts for the rich, I even defended him over the hostage negotiations in December and April......but this last time was 'enough is enough' for me. He certainly isn't leading this country, let alone as the leader of his party. What a fool I was.

    He wants at least ONE of his nominations to be confirmed?  I'm afraid President Obama has slid completely beyond the center and moved to the right.  The solution to our many problems is NOT following the conservative agenda.  Yet that is exactly what Obama has been doing.

    Because he's gone to the dark side? Or, if the Senate won't vote for this guy either, Obama will beat them to death with the issue
