Liberty Counsel on federal judge nominees: Do quality, experience matter?

President Obama has submitted a list of five nominees for federal judge posts, and a constitutional law expert suggests America will pay a price. 

Among the nominees are four African Americans, one of them homosexual, and the final one is white.

Mat Staver, who heads Liberty Counsel, tells OneNewsNow the president is reaching out to two communities.

Staver, Mat (Liberty Counsel)"So he gets a black man, who is a practicing homosexual, and now he wants to put this individual in an appointment for life on the federal bench," Staver advises.

He refers to the situation as "ideological bankruptcy."

Why?

President Obama is "destroying the judiciary because, when he leaves office in 2016, these judges will be around for 20 to 40 years," says the Liberty Counsel attorney. "That is going to be a bad legacy that Obama will leave behind that we'll all have to deal with in the aftermath." 

Staver says candidates should in part be selected on the basis of quality, character and experience on the job. All five nominees are considered liberals.

They must receive a majority vote in the U.S. Senate.
