Instead of cringing, folding or compromising, President Obama decided to be our President. He chose not to tolerate the Republicans' pro-forma Senate-is-in-session bullshit and appointed Richard Cordray as director of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The bureau can now pursue it's mission of preventing fraud and injustice. Obama put the Peoples business ahead of business-as-usual. He has not been a stellar president but this took guts and conviction. Obama has earned my vote! The Republicans should be ashamed of their dirty tricks and thug-politics.
