Send President Obama a thank you email for appointing Richard Cordray to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Make no mistake: President Obama's move will provoke a huge fight from Republicans. Most will declare this use of a recess appointment to be unconstitutional, while talk of impeaching Obama will likely spread throughout the right-wing media.

President Obama knew this would happen, but moved forward anyway. In so doing, he stood up to Wall Street and prevented Republicans from nullifying the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Best of all, Americans will now have a watchdog working to stop the fraudulent practices of mortgage companies, payday lenders, debt collectors and other financial companies that continue to cause so much economic pain throughout our country.

Send President Obama a thank you email for making this bold move.

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.
