    More Hope & Change. Remember when this President & Democrats vehemently opposed Recess Appointments?


    Senate Republicans have been holding up the confirmation of Richard Cordray to head the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau until changes to the agency’s structure are made to provide oversight and accountability at the agency. But sources from inside the Capitol tell Capitol Confidential that a recess appointment of Richard Cordray to head the unconstitutional CFPB could come as early as tomorrow.

    “We have been hearing consistently from the Senate offices that the President is considering a recess appointment of Richard Cordray along with a slew of other controversial nominees in the brief period between the two sessions of Congress,” a key Senate source said. “Now we are hearing from Senior Democrat staffers that something big is coming tomorrow [Jan 4].”

    Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution provides the president with the power to “fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate.” The problem for the president and his liberal allies is that the Senate has not recessed and technically remains in session. However, liberal groups are pressing the White House to invoke the “Roosevelt Option” to stack key government positions with radicals ready to carry out an anti-business, pro-big labor regulatory agenda. The Roosevelt Option is coined from the actions of Teddy Roosevelt who in 1903, in a split-second between two congressional sessions of Congress, made more than 100 recess appointments. In 2012, Congress will need to move from the First Session of this current Congress to the Second Session. Liberals claim the fraction of a second between the sessions is enough to trigger presidential power.

    It's so shocking that many still believe in that "Hope & Change" scam.

    Andrew Breitbart, another corporate shill, lord, if all the whiners on the right had to get a real job the underemployment rates would skyrocket. 'Mommy, guess what I want to be when I grow up? What? I want to whine about big government. Oh son, such a productive use of your talents. Yes mommy, isn't it something. Yes, whining pays that's for sure.' Bah humbug.

    I don't really see what Paul supporters see in the demise of the middle class. Everytime protections are afforded, they cry about losing their "freedom" to take advantage of anyone not as economically astute as they are. I thought America was for all of us, NOT just the self-chosen few! :doubt:

    Obama is a socialist dictator. The man is pure evil, and if he is allowed to have his own way then he would run this country by presidential fiat.

    Your a very confused individual. Your socialist dictator of a leader clearly wants two classes of people. The poor who are dependent on government assistance to live, and the rich who live high on the hog off of the taxes of the poor.

    You sir, need to get a clue and look at the world around you.

    And how many recess appointments did Bush make?

    The hell with you people. Our President made a huge mistake in trying to be conciliatory for the past three years. From here on in, he needs to slap your asses down every time you start your nonsense.

    The GOP can't get its way, so when the Congress officially recesses, they have mock sessions every three days so the Congress is not technically in recess. These mock sessions last about three seconds.

    Now what were you saying about playing games again?

    This is propaganda. The CFPB has more oversight than existing regulatory agencies, such as the OCC.

    More propaganda. The CFPB is not unconstitutional.
