According to the right wing, CEOs can do no wrong and must be coddled at any expense. Therefore, we must follow the advice of these CEOs and confirm Cordray immediately.

Consumers deserve this agency and Cordray is a great person to lead it.

What can I say! I voted for Cordray in this past election as I felt he would do more than the "do nothing" that ran against him. I was also against Strickland and his supporters.

Another government agency we don't need to be led by a left wing nut job like Cordray. Hopefully Senator Portman will step to the plate and help stop this nomination.

Nothing against Cordray, but the federal government doesn't need another level of bureaucracy that will absorb more taxpayer money

This new consumer agency is completely ball-less.
The agency has no authority. The rules have not been written in the bill that creates the agency. Of 400 new rules, only 38 have actually been layer out. The other rules are waiting for the lobbyists to write them.
Political trickery. No One gives a crap about us in DC
They will take 33% of my money but only 12% of the richest Americans' money. Who are the 50% Of middle class Americans who pay no taxes?

These CEOs have nothing to lose by supporting this political hack. If (God willing) Cordray's confirmation goes down in flames, it'll only be a matter of time before he's running for yet another office, as he is hopelessly, terminally addicted to suckling at the government teet. If (God forbid) he gets into office again, I'm sure he'll remember his CEO benefactors. Here's hoping ol' Richie has to spend some years in the private sector for a refreshing change.

Democrats are now seen as the fiscally responsible party by advocating a balanced & fair approach to financial matters. Tables have turned mostly by the presidents leadership but also due to the destructive nature of the Republican party accross the States & in Washington.

Cordray as the "epitome of the judicious and fair-minded public servant. He has impressed us with his intelligence, pragmatism, integrity and service-oriented mindset."

Words that will never be true about kasich and all of his FLUNKIES!

So, these CEOs back Cordray, does that make it legit? Look it up, these CEOs are nothing more than liberal democrat hacks, especially Wexner. Wexner builds and donates money to OSU to get his name on buildings and evade taxes (now what does Hussein Obama think about that). Wexner thinks he is a great philanthropist when he gives to the arts, but what do you think the persons that live in the housing projects and inner city get from this, a painting?

If rich people(CEO<s) support something it should be done away with as fast as possible. The rich only support things that make them money and hurt this nation and its people.

They don't exist.

The rich (job creators) like to claim that this is true, but only because they ignore social security and medicare taxes, which are paid almost exclusively by poor and middle class people, and make up closet to 50% of the government's revenue.

The rich (job creators) then "borrow" that money to spend on themselves, and are now trying to cut benefits to working people to cover up the fact that they have stolen the $2.5 trillion dollars in the Social Security trust fund.

glad to see some of our business people backing cordray. to bad the senate republicans including portman had to take a political stance before they knew anything about him. typical politics. follow the part line. the repubs seem to forget it was the lax regulation that favored banks and investors that sent us into the recesssion. it is about time the consumer had a fair and easy to comprehend set of rules when it comes to dealing with credit cards and loans and banking industry in general. why are they afraid to let us know the rules?? we don't need any more political boards making decisions.it has been proven repeatedly that they are not effective, they only suck up money and waste time. they are to close with the lobbyists who do not work for the comsumer.

Wexner is a super liberal and is only looking out for his tax breaks.

Michael Morris of AEP has no problems giving millions to the Scioto Mile so he can be best bud with Mike Manhood Coalman. What kind of payback is he or AEP going to get?
In the meantime AEP is laying off employees.

I for one do not support liberals dressed as business people. Just like last year whent he CEO of Scotts endorsed Ted Strickland. I immediately cancelled my Scotts lawn service. And by the way Scotts send jobs from Ohio to Alabama. Another FAIL by TED!

Yawn. Another story on the pretentious, partisan, lifelong bureaucrat who lost to Mike DeWine.
How interesting. Billionaire corporate men, who Democrats say the hate, come to Cordray's rescue.

No. Liberal pukes in the media support Cordray. That makes him legit. They all rooted for him in the election and were stunned when didn't win. Why? Ohioans wanted him to fight ObamaCare and he refused because Washington told him not to.
So, the media are keeping his career, such that it is, in the spotlight. They want him back. Hey Washington: You can keep him.

Morris votes Republican most of the time, or so he told us employees.
