I am thrilled with the President's selection of Richard Cordray as the Dir. of The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau!!!!

The President refused to weaken the power of the agency, and successfully fought the Republican obstructionism used to block this very much needed protection.

Republicans lost this battle to protect predatory crooks who make their money by scamming and cheating American consumers!

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> “What did the President do that was so wrong?” Stewart asked, before turning to the news that the Senate was in session, and so Congress’s outrage was confined to the House of Representatives. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Stewart noted that, as someone who watches C-SPAN for a living, it was strange to him that he missed the sessions. “It’s not like a shooting star, you don’t just miss it!” Stewart joked. They he played an entire session, while he tried to open an aspirin bottle. Not surprisingly, the bottle was still closed after the 30 seconds or so it took for the Senate to adjourn.</span> He then brought on correspondent John Oliver to describe the appointment process– and the mess therein should anyone try to prove it was illegal in some way, before mocking all of America for abandoning constitutional monarchy.</div></div>

Actually, we did.

But, statists had loved being ruled by a series of godkings named George and attempted to make George Washington a godking.

They failed, until Lincoln, to make a POTUS into a godking who ruled by presidential fiat.

Since then they have led us to several more, Obama being the most recent.

I'm not entirely sure that's the case.

Some argue that the peace treaty did not establish much daylight between our countries, and in fact, ratified the position of the British monarchy over us.
