    Senate banking committee... that's a helluva position on in this field.

    Further, I don't thing the agencies she queried have the ability to 'take x to court'. IIRC their duty is furnish the results of their investigations to DA's/Att. Gen/ Justice dept for review and prosecution. Considering this Warren was merely grandstanding...she is going to fit right in!
    Grandstanding? What exactly would you like a senator in a hearing to do? And do you disagree with what she stated?

    If she were actually grandstanding she wouldn't have posed questions as much as forwarding accusations IMO.

    Senators do more than just vote. As that televised hearing showed.

    Yes, grandstanding. What was said in this hearing that you didn't already know or presume? Do I disagree? Don't know as I am not privy to all the evidence.

    Her questions WERE thinly veiled accusations, IMO. One would presume, based on the rhetoric this administration has advanced concerning 'Wall St. crimes' there would be ample support from Justice to prosecute...but considering the respondants in the hearing 'what's wrong with this picture'? Considering this...yes grandstanding.

    You may be impressed by whats basically a lying b+$& but I'm not. And I actually have Native American roots that are easily traced back through five generations on my mothers side.

    I never needed to call on those qualifications and its unfortunate that someone who would lie about something like that would leave such an impression on people like you.

    But then again at the core of every Liberal is at least one great compromise.

    If she was a man, with spanish lineage, with the last name cruz you and your ilk would be calling it just about every other name in the book.

    Oh wait she couldn't be Ted Cruz. There is not a stich of Native Indian in her

    I wonder how worried the Republican party is of this stark contrast?


    "This year, 82 percent of those who watched the speech said they approve of the president's plans for the economy, up from 53 percent who approved before the speech. Eighty percent said they approved of Mr. Obama's plans for the deficit -- in contrast to 45 percent before the speech."

    Poll: High Marks for Obama's State of the Union Speech - Political Hotsheet - CBS News


    "Eighteen percent of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing, as leaders continue to work toward a solution to the looming fiscal cliff. That approval rating is unchanged from last month, but remains low from a historical perspective."

    Worried ?

    Your President is running around like Chiken Little claming 300k furloughs from the Pentagon if sequestration goes through.

    Continued deficit spending and inflating the bond market is the best you guys can do after 4 years of miserable economic conditions.

    No, Republicans aren't worried in the least.
