Did you hear the latest on Massachusetts “Conservative” Senator Scott Brown? He is all in on Obama’s unconstitutional recess appointment of Richard Cordray as head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
And he is getting some positive press from supporting Obama here. Unfortunately, it is from the Huffington Post.
GOP leaders bitterly accused the president of arrogance and overreach. But Brown, facing a tough election challenge from the architect of the CFPB, Elizabeth Warren, decided that their actions were the bigger problem.
“I support President Obama’s appointment today of Richard Cordray to head the CFPB,” Brown said in a statement. “I believe he is the right person to lead the agency and help protect consumers from fraud and scams.”
Only Congress is not actually in recess. They left the lights on just in case Obama wanted to pull a fast one. Only Obama ignored them. Every member of congress ought to be howling at the president sidestepping the Constitution and declaring himself Dictator.
You would expect Democrats to go along with this unprecedented power grab, but a Republican?
Yea. We got a few Senators who pretend to be staunch Conservatives and big time believers in the law and the Constitution – until they win an election. And it is no coincidence that the largest cluster of Feaux-publicans come from the frozen and Conservatively barren hinterland to the north. And they are all the same. From the Witches of Eastwick Snowe and Collins to Brown. Unreliable Republicans to say the lease.
Remember how Scott Brown billed himself as number 41 – breaker of the Democrat Super-majority. The one to return sanity and reason to an out of control ram-it-down-our-throats Democratic majority hell bent on flushing the remaining vestiges of the formerly great United States down the crapper? Well, he has turned out to be the Democrats #60 more often than the Republicans #41.
From the land of Barny Frank, Teddy Kennedy and Socialist Bernie Sanders, people like Brown may seem pretty far to the right, but to the rest of the Conservative world, these guys are too far left to even call RINO.
And the fact that the king of “I’m a Conservative Maverick” John McCain who limps left as soon as the final returns count him the winner has endorsed Mitt Romney, who is every bit as conservative as Scott Brown, should come as no shock to anyone familiar with the New England Republican mindset.
And why anyone thinks that an endorsement by the guy that lost the last presidential election of the guy he beat to secure his bid as the loser is a good thing is beyond me. It sort of makes Romney a loser squared.
But is you are thinking that Mitt Romney really means it this time, just remember how great Scott Brown sounded as he stood poised to capture the seat once held by Teddy Kennedy. It makes you wonder exactly how drunk you were last night.
One thing is for sure. If you liked what George W. Bush did to the Republican Party, you’ll love what Mitt Romney will do to it. Just like Bush, only far more liberal.
