Sen. Brown: I support Obama naming consumer chief (RINO doesn't know Constitution)
boston.com ^ | 01.04.12 | S LeBlanc

Posted on 01/05/2012 5:31:56 AM PST by Recovering_Democrat

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.

Hussein probably did this to put pressure on GOP candidates as well as to reflect his own freedom-hating worldview.

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.

Of course Scott Brown would.

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.

Warren was prepared to campaign on the basis that her pet project was being put down by evil Republicans, and that Br'r Brown was among them.

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.

Exactly.

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.

Brown voted for the agency. He said it's OK for Obama to appoint the guy he wanted to appoint. And so forth.

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.

It’s not enough to get rid of the appointees. You have to go back into the ranks of the permanent civil service and REVERSE every promotion they ever approved.

Not surprising from Brown. Everyone needs to remember that he's as right as you're gonna get from Mass. Also, his credentials are as follows:

Brown voted for Dodd-Frank, which contained the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

True... within that legislation is the provision that states that the head of the Bureau must be approved by the Senate, which of course it was not. So not only is Senator Brown an idiot for voting this abomination into law, he did so without any knowledge of what was in it.

Why do you think Elz-beth is smart? Everything I've heard from her suggests she's a rather dull Marxist who hasn't the slightest idea how money works.

I think we need to treat her like the ignoramus she really is.

He knew but he's running a campaign for re-election against the old moonbat who is supposed to be the mastermind behind that agency.

He has to avoid making the campaign about the agency and instead make it about OTHER ISSUES OF CONSEQUENCE.

He's running in Massachusetts and they are definitely deficient when it comes to having an intelligent electorate.

Here’s a case ~ Massachusetts ~ where we probably couldn’t get Jesus elected as a Republican. This guy Brown pulled it off. Now it’s time for re-election.

Yup. Brown’s demostrating that he’s no better than Warren. I’m not helping him with my vote this November. Hope he gets defeated. Better to have a real democrat representing MA than somebody watering down the Republican party.

If he has these views when he’s answerable to the voters, what’s he going to be like when he’s safely in power for six years?? Some republicans and conservatives think he’ll magically become more conservative when he’s secured a full term. I’m not fooled. Good luck Scott. You’ll need it in November.

He does not care about the constitution so don’t waste a copy of it on him. Just get him out of the GOP.

We have too many GOP Senators who use the constitution as toilet paper. McCain and his girlfriend, Lindsey, to name two. We should keep the commies and fascists in the DNC where they belong.
