LOL! If this is not asking the wolf to guard the hen house. This is from the article:

"The Senate voted to confirm Thomas Curry to lead the OCC, and confirmed Martin Gruenberg, former Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank President Thomas Hoenig and JP Morgan Chase and Co executive Jeremiah Norton to fill openings on the five-member FDIC board."

Now, knowing how much JP Morgan and the Federal Reserve (which is not Federal) played a role in the establishing and collapsing the derivative markets that has put us where we are today, how can this be a good appointment?

Yes indeed the marxist-democRat controlled US Senate is in camp with the lord marshal b. h. obama who by all accounts has proven himself to be nothing more than a self-serving bozo. All thanks goes to the pathetic voting dumbbells who wanted to see a half white man become the first black president...It's an obamanation.

It's not Marxism. Lets call a spade a spade here. It's Fascism. The merger of Corporations and Government.

I missing the wishes of the right here?

I thought they didn't want ANY regulation of Wall Street. Are they now saying they rather different regulators than the Senate as suggested?

Can any reich wingers name who they would prefer? If so, did you let your Senator know?

....I'm gonna guest no. And now you complain.

Yawn...you'll always feel Gov is against you, when you only b1tch and complain on social internet sites instead of getting involved with what YOUR Rep does BEFORE they vote.

The bigger surprise is how you people called for Bush's head when he did it and suddenly defend Obama for the same behavior.
