Skip to comments.Another day, another Obama czar
Posted on 09/16/2010 9:05:00 AM PDT by Nachum
Special adviser is the new czar.
Facing stiff opposition and pointed questions about the left-wing, anti-business advocate that he wanted to nominate as chairman of the new federal consumer financial protection bureau, President Obama once again circumvented the Senate constitutional advice and consent role and installed Elizabeth Warren with a wave of his hand:
Consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren will help set up a powerful new watchdog agency policing the financial marketplace on behalf of ordinary borrowers and savers, a Democratic official said Wednesday. But its unclear whether the Harvard University law professor will end up running the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
President Obama is expected this week to appoint Warren to an advisory position that reports to him and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. As special assistant to the president and special adviser to Geithner, she will help get the agency off the ground.
Her new role will not require Senate confirmation. Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., had predicted that senators might balk at confirming someone who faces considerable opposition from Wall Street.

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Kinda like choosing a Carp Czar when he already has a great lakes czar with jurisdiction over invasive species.
These czars are nothing more than an attempt at grabbing money.
I would encourage our new conservative representatives to cut off all funding to any Czar lead agency. Starve the bastards...
AnnointedIdiot setting up for the final collapse....
another f***ing law professor, can’t we stop these people from breeding.
How many frickin law professors are running this administration and none of them no anything about the real world.
That is my recommendation too. You just beat me to posting it.
And I think the proper title for her would be "Czarina". BTW: would the "Carp Czar" be a Czardine? Just asking.
Love that song.
and if these jerks must make laws, let’s have one that says if you get paid by the government executive you have to be approved by the senate if you have any authority.
He is so damned crooked it is beyond sickening.
Soon will be the czar of czars of the czars...
There are more Czars in the Obama regime than in the entire history of the Russian Empire!
This is yet another enemy.

Yes, because the Dodd-Frank FinReg stuck the Consumer Financial Protection office into the Federal Reserve bureaucracy, and because it's a "temporary" appointment.
Warren picked to oversee creation of consumer bureau - TH, 2010 September 15, by Silla Brush and Sam Youngman
The move will allow Warren, who originally pushed for the office as part of new financial regulations, to bypass full Senate confirmation. Warren would report to Obama and the Treasury Department, according to ABC News, which first reported the decision. Warren would have faced a tough confirmation battle amid opposition from many Republicans. Most Democrats and consumer advocacy groups have been urging the president to nominate Warren as the full-time head of the bureau. ..... Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, has also said he wants the head of the office to go through a confirmation process.
President Obama will name Elizabeth Warren to a position overseeing the creation of a new federal consumer financial protection office, according to a Democratic source.

The entire idea of Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is just appaling and should be scrapped in the new Congress, along with most of FinReg itself which will only cause more expenses for the banks passed on to consumers. There are courts to protect consumers from truly predatory practices and Internet created the entire generation of "prosumers" (credit to Alvin Toffler) who can evaluate the products and services.
Creation of Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is nothing more than a prelude to another Community Reinvestment Act fiasco.
“Elizabeth Warren, named by President Barack Obama to set up the new consumer finance agency, was paid $90,000 this year to be an expert witness in a classaction lawsuit against some of the nation’s baggest banks...........In an interview, Warren said that she first discussed being an expert witness before joining the oversight panel in 2008. She said she cleared the outside work with the panel’s ethics council.”
Nothing like priming the pump there.
She is also a BFF ("best friends forever") with two incompetents - Mary Schapiro (SEC Chairman, who "missed" Bernie Madoff corruption when she ran FINRA, so was promoted by Obama to run SEC) and Sheila Bair (George W. Bush holdover, Chairman of FDIC):

The New Sheriffs of Wall Street.
Another "bestest friend" of Elizabeth Warren is Michael Moore, in whose movies / mockumentaries she was "interviewed" as an "expert witness".
