Good on you for appointing Consumer Financial Protection Agency chief Richard Cordray.
We need the agency to perform.
And, also, why not think about an alternative political strategy for him?
How about this: Have him announce 20 or 30 actions that will PO the Reps as soon as he is in office - first day.
He could start with Payday lenders who prey on poor folks: http://www.sfgate.com/columns/networth/ [January 5, 2012]
That will get the Reps panties in a bunch and maybe take some attention from you.
It will also let voters see you are serious about protecting the middle class.
Of course, Cordray may well become a sacrifical lamb, but it's for a good cause.
Ooooh, I love thinking dirty.
