Actual title is : Obama violated Senate norms to appoint this guy? New financial protection chief accused of misusing state funds (FR needs more space for title- I always have to alter Aaron's titles to post them)
Sparking Republican charges he violated Senate norms, President Obama today used his recess appointment powers to name a head for the controversial Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
KleinOnline first reported last month that consumer groups had been calling on Obama to seize rarely-used powers in to make a recess appointee for Richard Cordray, the nominee for what the government bills as a new consumer financial watchdog.
KleinOnline also reported Cordray was the subject of national news in 2008 when he used public funds for the legal defense of three former state employees accused of accessing personal information of Joe Wurzelbacher, also known as Joe the Plumber.
Wurzelbacher rose to fame during that years presidential campaign after he was videotaped questioning Obama about the candidates small-business tax policy during a campaign stop in Ohio.
Now Republicans are charging Obama violated Congressional rules by appointing Cordray just a day after the Senate held a session. Traditional rules gold that the Senate must be in recess for at least three days before a president can act.

Aaron is Jewish and often broadcasts from TelAviv. I've heard interviews he's done with Hamas leaders and other terrorists. He is owning investigative reporting with many breaking stories and others will report on his items after he has broken the story. You don't want to miss his reports.
If you want to get the breaking scoop on OWS (Occupy Wall Street ) and other great stories there are several options available for you.
How long do you have to work at these jobs before you get a retirement? We may see a rash of appointments to pay off political debts if the Democrats are worried about losing the presidency.
With the Democrat ownership of the planet’s media, voices like Klein have become like those “crying in the wilderness”. Bless him.
I have no idea how long it would be til they could retire. These people are so corrupt. I’m about to post a couple more of Aaron’s articles. I just can’t believe some of the stuff I’m reading.
Interesting. The position has many unchecked powers. This needs to be exposed.
The Senate was in session. The appointment is therefore illegal. Why can't these "commentators" get it right? Why do we bother with them?
Yes he is! I can’t believe how horrible and incompetent the msm is! They could easily be investigating the same things that Aaron does but they won’t.
Misuse of state funds is a requirement to work in this administration.
“...Cordray was the subject of national news in 2008 when he used public funds for the legal defense of three former state employees accused of accessing personal information of Joe Wurzelbacher, also known as Joe the Plumber.
So Barry pushed this appointment, illegally at that, as payback. Wonder if Cordray had some dirt on Barry as motivation?
Next question: What date does the White Crib cite that the Senate was gaveled into recess? Did the Marxists "deem" something that was fictitious....again?
This wasn’t a violation of Senate “norms”, it was a violation of the statute AND the Constitution.
Hussein is lawless.
“Cordray was the subject of national news in 2008 when he used public funds for the legal defense of three former state employees accused of accessing personal information of Joe Wurzelbacher, also known as Joe the Plumber.”
Now we get to it.
Little wonder Obama didn’t want this guy before the Senate, in an Election Year, on National TV.
“Hussein is lawless.”
Who’s gonna call him out on it?
Republicans are screaming bloody murder, but did you see that on the Alphabet Network Evening News last night?
It’s like the allegory of the bear in the woods.
Maybe I’ll go out and commit some kind of crime this afternoon so I can get appointed as a Czar of something or other by this kenyan-usurper, affirmative-action, equal-opportunity loser (aka nobama).

Sounds like a first class puke.
Aaron is doing a great job. I know a lot of us on FR may be older but if you aren’t on Twitter and Facebook, then folks, just suck it up and sign up. Learn to use them, social media is an invaluable tool for spreading the word. We know we can’t rely on the media. Why do you think he wants a kill switch for the internet? And these National Emergency Alerts, UGH!
This says it all
“Whos gonna call him out on it?”
he is getting away with this and so much chit he should be in jail.
Now we find out he is giving our missile secreats to russia
and he will get away with it
There is no way to stop him
I get that he hates America
but why does all MSM?
Your post strikes a nerve, I thought this Dodd bill included collecting all of your financial transactions. They seem callous to privacy rights and abuses.
Not sure why he worded it that way other than legal advice to watch it but Aaron is reporting stuff that no one else will touch. He is one of few that I ‘bother with’.
The third party will siphon WAYYYYYYYYYYY more voters off of Obama than the Republican.
Furthermore, Democrat coattails will disappear.
And, tax dodger, marxist, maoist, anti American, etc, and so on....
Watch it get far worse. Obama will pull out all the stops to advance his agenda this year, knowing he is a one term, one trick pony.
Yes. I’m worried.
