Elizabeth Warren Rap Video- Got A New Sheriff

copyright © 2010 Betsy L. Angert.  BeThink.org

There is so much flak for what seems would be a fine Presidential appointment.  The nation’s Chief Executive, Barack Obama, is often characterized as Spock, a Vulcan who is almost virtually void of emotion.  It is said that our current President is practical.  He acts on logic.  Yet, this supposed intellectual individual has, at times, seemed ready to do other than what most think reasonable.  Mister Obama has not appointed the truly best Sheriff for towns throughout the country, Elizabeth Warren..

Rather than rapidly select Harvard Professor Elizabeth Warren as the first-ever director of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection, a new agency born out of her years-long efforts to secure a Consumer Rights Department within the Federal Government, many speculated Barack Obama might nominate Secretary Tim Geithner disciple Michael Barr.

Since White House Advisor Larry Summers, an advocate for never-too-big banks did not favor Elizabeth Warren, there is even more reason for worry, or so the populace believes.   Americans have seen, heard, and read some backtracks. Yet, the post remains unfilled.   Granted, there are other candidates, any of which would avoid conflicts in the Executive Branch, but back on the boulevards . . .

The American people know what they want.  Fearful that Mister Obama will choose a financial insider or friend to one, have penned their names on numerous petitions.  The public took their preference to the streets.  Protests were held.  Rallies, rants, and campaigns organized to raise dollars have worked to deliver the people’s message. “We want Elizabeth Warren” to protect those of us who reside on Main Street.  Still, The Commander-In-Chief appears to be poised, or possibly persuaded by his pals on Wall Street and friends in the White House, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Larry Summers. Thus, Today, the people again express concern, this time in the form of a short film. Elizabeth Warren Rap Video- Got A New Sheriff

Until the day when the decision is formally delivered, people will proclaim, Mister President, “We want Elizabeth Warren to serve as our Sheriff.”  Should Mister Obama do other than the public craves, we can only imagine how consumers will feel about out present Administration and their authentic commitment to change a seriously corrupt system.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
