Washington (CNN)—A senior administration official tells CNN that on Friday, around midday, President Obama will officially announce his appointment of Elizabeth Warren as Assistant to the President and Special advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Warren will join President Obama for the announcement at the White House.
great news. I sense she is not someone who will be easily manipulated into compromising her ethical values.
I would rather have her heading the agency, but this is welcomed news.
Does the Senate confirm anybody any more? Or has Obozo done away with that part of our Constitution? It appears we have an entire shadow government that was never vetted by the Senate.
Czars and Czarinas just to avoid Senate scrutiny, change is a new four letter word!
One question, does she have any real experience in economics? If someone is in charge of protecting my concerns, I would like it to be someone who has some real time experience in the matter, not a professor who has read a book on the subject and who gets the job because of being a good bud of someone.
The what??????????? President Obama, I love you and I think the world of you but.......Mr. President, do we really need to know who your new gopher is? Get back to work and keep making these Republican American Hating Jihadist look stupid and stop with the "this is my new assistant to the assistant of the Secretary second cousin who happens to be the mailroom person for the assistant of the your adminstrative assistane......or whatever her new job is!"
Great another socialist in goverment. You wonder why everybody has jump of the kenyans ship.
Hope she doesn't owe any back taxes!
Friday afternoon – the time to dump news stories as it is the weekend...
You being Oweblamobots with no understanding or brain matter would not get that.
All her baggage will be glossed over as the masses will be so happy to finally have time off to spend their mere pittance BEFORE Oweblamo takes it all away to "redistribute".
Those of us lucky enough to have a job in the "Summer of recovery".
Just as bad as Mission accomplished.
Re: Elizabeth Warren... Sick'em Grrl !!!! Get after those wall street gigilos who took our economy into the gutter!
Re: Obama: Maybe it was smart to sidestep the party of No, that is, the GOP, the Geezers Of Pr##kdom, by creating a position for Warren that does not require approval of the House and Senate, but part of me thinks, get some b#lls dude! Warren is by far superior to Geitner in intelligence and integrity... oh, and she has more b#lls than all of you put together! Girl Power!!!!
The Repubs are scared to death of Elizabeth Warren.
She's another smart and intelligent person who's more motivated by doing good instead of motivated only for profit and personal gain – who doesn't fit their prejudice and distorted views of our world.
Thank you Mr. President for doing what is right for you and the country. I feel that Ms. Warren will be a valuable member of your team.
More, back door, improper conduct.
Great move Mr. President. Everyday I thank God that we voted you in.
Where's the TRANSPARENCY YOU PROMISED Mr. President???????
The CROOKED banks are shaking in their boots now, GO ELIZABETH
Another college professor with no experience. Sure things will get better. NOT! Obama and his pack of Clowns are in over their head.
Yea, Elizabeth Warren.....nice appointment!!
Get appointment. Anoyone the Masters of the Universe dislike so much will be great for mainstreet.
Excellent choice, President Obama. Excellent choice. And you know how I know it's an excellent choice, the congressional GOPers hate it.
