47. Referring to factual accounts of Barlow as "anti-Obama screamfest"
and posting:
"Prove that assertion. Barlow worked at the same firm as the Obamas.

I think they have a better idea of his qualifications than you do."

Have you bothered to read the other posts on this thread? You are expected to consider them as a whole.

Soooooooooo, can you grasp that msanthrope is dismissive of factual posts about Barlow's lack of experience and qualification for this very important job? Pardon me for my legal way of thinking (retired attorney/law professor that I am) but if you want to challenge someone, you should have some facts at hand to support your position.

With the wonders of google, we do not have to wait until confirmation hearings to see exactly what kind of an attorney Barlow is and has been his entire professional career.
