If the Republicans had any balls (and they don't seem to), they'd make sure that any budget they pass going forward does not fund this agency, to include this guy's salary.

So are they going to put him in his place, send his new appointment home, or pout and cry about it? They need to put on their skates and body check his ass into the glass.

"But when Congress refuses to act in a way that hurts our economy and puts people at risk, I have an obligation as President to do what I can without them."

I'm glad at least one branch of the .gov is refusing to act in a way that hurts our economy! Did he actually say this, or is it a typo? Either way, it's hiliarious :)

The Democrats pulled the "short Congressional sessions" thing on Bush.

W just went along with it. What Obama did is very much illegal.

eta:
Priebus, in a conference call with Ohio reporters, said that even Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, has said that "the Senate is not in recess."


Even Harry Reid is on our side.

That won't happen. Are you surprised. It is all a game to these people. The best we can do is vote all incumbents out
during this election cycle. Continue it for the next two election cycles and show congress who they work for.

Will we do it? NO you can't get two people to agree on where to go for lunch let alone get the apathetic public away from their
xBox and Domino's pizza to vote.

For a man who has made a career out fucking over people on technicalities, he knows full well he's got no standing here. Maybe he's doing the symbolic worthless action to stir up his base move, also makes me wonder what would have happened if his healthcare didn't get passed.

There should be a bill dissolving what Obama just did and smacking him with a repremand/censure.

Then again,I think a high number of Executive Orders are unConstitutional(as they ceate laws..which the President CANNOT DO according to the Constitution) and should be reviewed, as every new order should be.

So what happens if a president is impeached during the summer of an election year? He's the only one running on the Democratic primary. Would the Republican go unchallenged, much like 0 did to get into the Senate?

Every Democrat screamed about the potential for abuse of the Patriot Act . . . until Obama was sworn in.

No politician admits that the new thing they are doing is explicity to garner more power, in violation of the Constitution or not, acting as though the other party will never have control of it. When the Democrats lose power they will start whining and crying about the abuses of this agency.

Guarantee it.

"Every day that Richard waits to be confirmed is another day when millions of Americans are left unprotected," the president will say. "Without a director in place, the consumer watchdog agency we've set up is left without the tools it needs to prevent dishonest mortgage brokers, payday lenders and debt collectors from taking advantage of consumers. That's inexcusable. It's wrong. And I refuse to take 'no' for an answer.

Well, you could argue that Romney won't just do his own fucking up...

But he certainly won't try to repeal oblamacare, and I'll bet the fallout from that going fully into effect...

Along with all of the other oblama fallout, will blow back onto the Republicans.

I'd rather see oblama eat his own shit sandwich.


I guess Santorum is going to be my candidate now by default.

this is an important point. If a republican gets in the WH and doesn't rollback obamacare and other obama acts, then the country will be in even worse shape than it already is. THIS WAS INTENDED!! That's why obamacare does not fully implement until after obamas first term.

the result is even more progressiveness. If a candidate doesn't have the balls to criticize obama, then I won't vote for them.

It's dole/mccain all over again.

US Constitution

Article II

Section. 2.
The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

I have to correct my own post. Apparently this position is funded by the Federal Reserve and not funds appropriated by congress, which is one of the Republican's major issues with it. Imagine that.
