Mud slinging ads
by J. B. Cannon (03 February 2012 16:46:18)

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
(Government, Politics)
by J. B. Cannon (02 February 2012 16:39:32)

Wish you could see the steam pouring out of my ears. The President has done something unprecedented. He''s claimed a ''recess appointment'' when the Congress wasn''t officially in recess. All so he could bypass Congress and place Richard Cordray as director of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The Republicans have been holding "pro-forma" sessions every three days which met the constitutional requirement to avoid calling their winter break a recess.
