    Yes indeed, I think that the roughly 80% of Americans who support the CFPB are joining the President in his one finger salute to Republicans who are fighting to protect too-big-to-fail banks.

I can promise you that Obama has a whole team of lawyers and advisers. If they have ANY doubt this would be a constitutional violation, there is just no way he would pull this 1 year out from elections. Case closed. Still no scandal GOP, sorry, keep trying.
    Were you equally sickened when democrats did it to Bush? where you disgusted with...say...Senator Obama's comments on recess appointments?

    Because being against the CFPB is being for banks? You want to try that again?

    No, I happen to remember that when Bush made the appointments, there was much weeping and gnashing of teeth coming from the Democrat circles. Recess appointments are wrong no matter, who does it. Both parties are equally as guilty.

    Given that the CFPB is tasked with protecting the rights of consumers in financial transactions generally involving banks ... yeah -- pretty much. Who do you think it was that spent tens of millions of dollars lobbying against the CFPB? Hint: it wasn't consumers.

    Oh, so you think only libs, and progressives are "the American People"?

    What happened to 'the President is supposed to represent ALL the people"?

    And all the calls that Bush was a criminal for recess appointments...

    Man, you far lefties couldn't be anymore hypocritical could you?

    A huge majority of Americans -- including a majority of REPUBLICANS -- supported the CFPB. Kinda makes you wonder who the Republicans in Congress were representing there, doesn't it?

    The rights of people? Please, that is dishonest right from the start. Its regulates banks and puts in place their solutions trumping their rights and the responsibly of people. All it does is allow the fed the power to control more of the economy while trumping rights of people.

    This has nothing to do with everyone that opposes the CFPB. Your argument is like saying because someone opposes the EPA they are for everyone dieing because of chemicals. You don't see how dishonest that is, do you?

    No sir. Almost 4/5 Americans support the CFPB. Only 1/5 supports the Republican's attempts to block it. The people, as a whole, have spoken on this issue.
