U.S. Sen. Scott Brown said he supports President Barack Obama's decision to name Richard Cordray as the nation's chief consumer watchdog despite the objections of Brown's fellow Senate Republicans.

Every GOP wannabe ought to speak out against such a blatant disregard for our founding document.
Scott Brown is an uneducated ass. Someone give him a copy of the Constitution.
Well I guess Elizabeth Warren will win Mass. this year. Just damn. He is a dissappointment
There goes his tea party support.
Brown is toast.
This is GOP Confirmation of Obama antiConstitutional behavior
direct from the Massachusetts 'Kennedy Seat'.
I think her poll numbers are better right now. This seems like a political statement to compete with her.
Scott Brown always has been unqualified for his office.
One of Brown’s problems is that he isn’t too smart.
He tries to pretend he is a maverick, but he isn’t. He is an easily swayed, mentally lightweight follower with no principle.
The law authorizing this new agency specifically requires senate approval of it’s chief - disallowing the “recess” appointment tactic.
Brown is ignorant of both the Constitution and the law.
I am disappointed with Brown too. On some of his votes though, I am realistic. He will always be somewhat "moderate" because he is from Massachusetts. We will never get a 100% consevative from Mass. Thus, we have to accept that on some votes he is going to vote the "wrong" way and take comfort in the fact that he isn't Ted Kennedy voting the wrong way on everything. Statements like this are especially hard to take because here he is agreeing with Obama's subverting of the Constitution and changing the rules on Republicans that the Dems used time and time again.
At the end of the day, I won't be sending Brown money but I still "support" him in that I don't want that Communist witch in a Senate seat. Think of her on CNN and MSNBC night after night. Think of all the obnoxious quotes we'll see from her in the papers. She is smart and will sponsor obnoxious, Communist legislation. We don't need that in the Senate. I'd rather have a disappointing RINO than some Communist firebrand. Its as good as we are going to do in Mass.
Brown voted for Dodd-Frank, which contained the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
There isn’t much of a leap from supporting this to surrendering to the individual mandate ‘reasoning’. If he doesn’t have the smarts to know where he’s going he’ll always be lost. Scott Brown is basically a fool who thinks weak minded reasoning makes him a better man.
So then Scott, you won’t object when a Republican president does the exact same thing? Won’t this come in handy when nominating judges? Just declare the Congress is in recess (regardless of the facts) and make the appointment.
Now she can't.
She'll probably need to campaign on some other issues ~ and she is woefully prepared for any of them anyone can think of. This woman is a dunce.
There's nothing wrong in using her stupidity against her.
The RINO speaks.
Last time the GOP was in the Whitehouse, we had a president who went out of his way to “compromise”.
That failed. Next time around, the GOP needs to kick butt and take names.
Starting with firing every single Obama appointee, cleaning out every single one. All of them.
Then, using these same tactics against the left.
Patty-cakes doesn’t work.
That Obama has decided to go to war against the United STates had nothing at all to do with those things that preceeded the action, but now that he's gone to war it's time for the Speaker of the House to call up the Militia and hold the Democrats in the House hostage pending cessation of hostilities.
Why are you guys so loathe to see that. I've been saying that ever since some WH staffer proposed Obama just pushing an appointment through without Senate confirmation.
Here's another thing you can do ~ IGNORE the President's status as Commander in Chief. Have the House name some General Grade officer to take over the armed forces as "protector of the Republic" pending cessation of hostilities.
That ain't in there either, but it'd get their attention.
