  •  Bullshit. (12+ / 0-)

    Over the last few days, Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner have made the case that Harvard professor and Congressional Oversight Panel chairwoman Elizabeth Warren is too controversial a figure to head the new Consumer Financial Protection Agency.

    I looked at your links.  Neither one of them has even attempted to make that case.  At least Dodd is quoted as wondering if she'd be filibustered, which almost comes close to saying she's "controversial", and shows what makes controversial in DC: republicans.  

    But the point of the diary is, of coures, demonizing democrats.  Thanks for ignoring republicans in order to have a contintuing attempt at  a purge.

    Someone on daily kos called me a poopyhead. My life is SO like Nelson Mandela's.

    •  Ignoring Republicans should have been SOP (5+ / 0-)

      from January 2009.  Instead, elected Democrats in DC have been empowering a party that was completely discredited in the public mind.  Folding at the mere mention of difficulty in obtaining 60 votes, reaching out for sacred bipartisanship.

      If Warren is not nominated it won't be because of GOP opposition, Democrats should like nothing better going into November than running against a Wall Street protecting GOP.  Nope, it will be because Wall St. Democrats don't want her there.
