In between chatting with Bill O, the President managed to get something useful done:
Today, President Barack Obama announced his intent to nominate Judge Beth Bloom, Paul G. Byron, Judge Darrin P. Gayles, and Judge Carlos Eduardo Mendoza to serve on the United States District Courts.Can't argue with that.
“Throughout their careers, these distinguished men and women have demonstrated a steadfast commitment to public service,” said President Obama. “I am confident they will serve the American people with distinction from the District Court bench.”
Congratulations -- we all benefit from this!
They'll be joining this already distinguished group:
(I kid, I kid!)
Great news, really.
