The so-very-predictable hair-on-fire party following the nomination of Richard Cordray as Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau – really has nothing to do with Elizabeth Warren (who didn’t want the job) or with Rich Cordray (who is a terrific choice) or with the strength of the CFPB (which is great).
Oh no, this is all about their ego. And their racism. They are no different from Eric Cantor. They want what they want and they want it now. They want the big pie fights that will bring clicks and traffic and money they can spend on themselves. Oh, and they want the black president to do as he’s told.
I remember once – in what now feels like different life – I commit the huge crime of suggesting that there’s racism on the Left. They killed me. Liberal racism? Surely it can’t be. Well, it can. Lawrence O’Donnell pointed out last week that Bill Clinton cut both Medicare and Social Security, and the Left did not beep. But now, even before PBO did anything – They already making money of lying about his “intentions”.
They are liars and racists and childish and they have no idea how politics work and what disaster is coming if they’ll achieve their goal of getting rid of this man. We really can’t let them win.
