    That is the funniest thing I've ever seen or heard in American politics. Really? Obama is going to be a small government advocate? Oh, please, stop. No, really, stop it. I'm going to pass out from laughing so hard.
    Almost as funny as Republicans suddenly championing fiscal responsibility.

    You are right. I misused the czar term. Cordray requires the consent of Congress. Obama declared Congress to be in recess, even though only Congress can so declare.

    As I understand the situation, Congress did not have the opportunity to exercise their authority as these appointments were never offered for review. If I am wrong, I'm here to learn.

    My point still stands. If Obama is serious, there are plenty of places to consolidate or eliminate agencies, and there have been there opportunities for the past many years. Name the agency or bureaucracy that he has consolidated or eliminated.

    Oh, I agree.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    No, they did not. Obama took that from them unconstitutionally, because he couldn't wait.

    And he's a hack.
