Sounds like she might know her stuff. We will see if she follows political favorites or the constitution.

Liberals are the result of two generations growing up on ADD drugs when they wern't needed, but was a way for the union schools to get more funding from uncle sugar for the Special Needs Students. Now they turn into liberal Occupiers or murderers spraying innocent people with semi-automatic weapons.

I hope she will keep the tradition of the SEC beating the pants off the ACC in both football and basketball.

She will do nothing.

Here is exert from the NY Times, "Some Democrats also might question her path through the revolving door, in and out of government. While seen as a strong enforcer as a United States attorney, she went on in private practice to defend some of Wall Streetís biggest names, including Kenneth D. Lewis, a former head of Bank of America."

So after she left the government under Clinton she went private practice and defended the head of BoA during a lawsuit regarding lieing to investors regarding the Merril Lynch deal.

She is a Wall Street insider who is going to take over the SEC and oversee Wall Street? Now that is comical. Like asking a wolf to guard the hen house.

White and Cordray are both good choices, sends a message to Corporate America that their shenanigans won't be tolerated. Wish he'd come up with someone better at Treasury, but these two are good.

Irrelevant, imbecilic, and evidence of your OWN mentally unbalanced state. I'd be a lot more worried if I lived near you, or knew that you had access to a weapons cache. You're about one big meltdown away from being a mall or school shooter yourself.

Really, call the range pookie, I popped of a hundred rounds yesterday practicing for the day you liberals realize your EBT cards aren't worth 10 cents on the dollar and have to start stealing food and eating rats. Stock up on Catsup.....Heinz of course. You may as well make Kerry richer in the process.

So..........White is a good choice based on what conclusions? Because Obama is appointing her? Is that your reasoning?

Due you even know what she did after she left Clinton's administration?

Oh wait, never mind, she is a Democrat, so you say she is a good choice.

Once again Professor Fartsack you describe yourself and how we feel about you to a T. You are unquestionably one of the most deluded leftist POS on topix and that is saying a lot.

Dear, the Benghazi Derangement Syndrome folks are not going to let anyone "forget this heinous event" - just as those of us who feel strongly that 20 innocent children were killed by one of us folks in a school in the Land of the Brave and the Home of the Guns.
