    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.

  3. President Obozo: On vacation and OUT TO LUNCH

    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.

    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.

  9. All the news that is fit to omit

    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.

    Excellent choice, President Obama. Excellent choice. And you know how I know it's an excellent choice, the congressional GOPers hate it.
