(CNSNews.com) - Richard Cordray did not face a threatened boycott by Republican senators during his appearance Tuesday before the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, but Sen.

Should be fun.
Isn't this the guy that was up the chain of command as boss to that ignant woman who released "Joe The Plumber's" personal information.
No, no, don’t send the bills to this nebbish. Send them to Obama.
Too bad, every legislator (both parties) who retains even a hint of respect for our constitution should have walked out.
At the least they should have turned their backs and ignored him until he left.
We have too many wimps in office.
He'll talk plenty soon.
yadda yadda yadda.........nothing to see here. Media will say he is nothing other than a Palinesque former governor who resigned in disgrace........nothing to see here...move on now.
Seems to me Obama can always say “well, if he’s not truly the nominal head of this agency, then I am, and Cordray is just an unconfirmed czar facilitating it.”
So when are they going to have their testicles drop to he point where they remove him and his stinking useless agency, that Obama formed on his own.
