    Anyway, what you've shown is Warren criticizing one proposal, as I have, and then - as I've seen her doing in the hearings - pushing regulators to do more.  But if she really thought any of them was corrupt, don't you think she's say that explicitly?  Or is she "holding her tongue in service to the Washington in-crowd"?

      that those regulators were appointed by Obama? Also too, I notice you had no response to the Warren quote.

        just as Warren herself was appointed by Obama to create the CFPB - a job that didn't require Senate approval.  Then she went to the Senate, with the full support and backing of the White House, and started doing her job of legislative oversight by pushing regulators to not be so supine.  But any claim that she thinks they're corrupt is either not true or implies that she is too cowardly to accuse them directly and explicitly.  She is not cowardly.

        I did respond to the Warren quote: She criticized one proposal, as I have.  That hardly adds up to "routinely pillorying" administration policies.  She supports the vast majority of administration policies.

          I've seen the same hearings you have, and I don't recall her making such broad accusations against the administration
          You are chasing your own tail.
