  •  I don't try to guess at what goes on in (8+ / 0-)

    the Presidents heart or mind anymore.

    It just (IMNSHO) clouds the issues with personality.

    What I hope is that she can demonstrate to The People how well sound regulation can improve our day to day lives, by providing us with the retail protections we need and will appreciate.

    I'm extremely hopefull that 3 page mortgages and 2 page credit card agreements will be so appealing that in months people will be SCREAMING for Congress to strip the auto loan exemption.

    Because if this is done right, it's

    "See, we told you financial regulation could improve your lives"

    and if it's implimented badly, it's

    "See, we told you financial regulation was a wastefull Government overeach that wouldn't protect you"

    And either way, opinions formed in the next 30 months, based on the perfomance of this agency, will shape the trajectory for the next generation - more dergulation, or a return to sound regulation.

    This bill will be a stepping stone, or an anchor.  

    It doesn't have a lot to do with inspiring the President...it's got everything to do with inspiring us.

    We need to stop going halfway around the world to wage war on people who don't even change out of their jammies to fight us.
