Obama Is My President: Richard Cordray Appointed To Head Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

Obama Is My President:

I may not agree with everything he's done - cough*NDAA*cough - but, I'm thrilled that President Obama just made four (count 'em: 1, 2, 3, 4!) recess appointments.

As Rachel Maddow said, "He never does that.".

Our President appointed three people to the National Labor Relations Board - so that they may have a quorum/continue to function - and (Drum roll, please...) he appointed Mr. Richard Cordray to head up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

I'm doing the Snoopy Dance about that last one.

GOP Senators have been relentlessly preventing anyone from being appointed to head the CFPB.

Because, even after our most recent Wall Street shyster-caused economic melt-down, Republicans in Congress still haven't wanted millions of Americans to be protected from evil, greedy, unethical, fast-talking loan and credit card companies...

But, My President Does!
