  •  I wonder... is the Pres. setting up a fox fight? (0+ / 0-)

    I hope the President says; "OK, Republicans, you've shown that you don't care about consumer protection and that your only goal is to stall any appointment. Here's my new nominee, if you cannot confirm him by your next recess, I will make a recess appointment. The Consumer Protection Agency will function and will provide safeguards and security for the people of this country." (Or, something along those lines)
    I know that normally, Fox would have a field day with something like that, but, this is the time to push their envelope and make them try to defend their corporate influencing.
    It would also make it easier for us to show the connection to their manipulations and the money trail of politics that they seem to be able to wear like the emperor's clothes.

    •  I'd like to see him say (3+ / 0-)

      "OK, you blocked my first choice. Mr. Cordray is my second choice. If you block him, I'm going to make a recess appointment of Elliot Spitzer. It's your call."
