The fact is it's the Democrats who came up -- this idea of these pro forma sessions to block George W.
Bush from making recess appointments.
It would have to be howling right now if bush made this kind of appointment during -- recess appointment and was ignoring congress the way Barack Obama has now.
What what where howling about on behalf of the American people is what is the basic premise of your quest exactly what your question was is that the Republicans.
Didn't question -- -- -- credentials didn't -- question that he was qualified.
They simply don't like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau so as a result.
-- -- -- because they have no interest in protecting consumers they refused to bring -- to allow his nomination to come up for a vote.
President Obama has allowed that to go about processed two -- have to go on for long enough and he went back for consumers.
Used his authority to recess appointment records -- so that the financial with consumer protection bureau.
Can get up and running and and quite frankly think that -- the Republicans are trying to do is use 888 -- pro forma says pro forma.
Process process to be added to try to block his nomination of his -- -- -- -- -- an unfair and it's -- I don't know if -- doesn't know what you're gonna -- -- -- white -- -- Emily -- but -- let me put this picture of chairman let me move on congresswoman while Republicans are just beginning.
You're nominating -- -- -- rather your party has been putting out now after an odd.
Targeting Mitt Romney and and in fact during the debate last night.
The DNC sent out several emails going after Romney but no one else why all the focus by your party.

Mitt -- -- that scrutiny he has spent to be his entire campaign.
As relentlessly attacking President Obama of distorting his record contract and has I don't doctors say -- -- I don't know about distorting the fact is all the Republicans are going after.
Obama but you guys are going after -- -- Mitt Romney is -- is one loves the candidates who lives near the top or at the top of their their field and so he invites and and and deserves that scrutiny because.
He has been distorting and as characterizing the president and you know what other presidential candidates have taken that line down and we're not going to the fact this is that this president has a remarkable record.
Of getting the at the beginning to get the economy turned around a fighting for the middle class and working families and hold on one sec well we don't know -- that I don't try to be fair that about I don't know I am trying to scare you -- why we knew we like I couldn't -- I didn't Mitt Romney is has no conviction is someone who.
Who hasn't flip flopped on every major issue and.
Voters need to you know ask a question that Obama knew they let me ask that you go after Romney.
For laying off people at Bain Capital in Iraq -- -- welfare and lots of things related to that is relevant about one of them.
Before it -- about how it comes jobs for our president responsible for laying off the people at -- -- -- No because the president wasn't CEO insolent had a little bit Alito and the CEO of these companies -- they're now the president was a benefit from what excuse me the president was a venture capitalist.
-- -- taxpayer money into Solyndra and a thousand people lost their jobs so is the president responsible for the thousand people who lost their jobs excellent not even close back Mitt Romney is responsible for.
Of companies that he took over.
That he doesn't say -- out but you but then it ended with the CEO Bain Bain bought these companies took them motor -- as CEO of the country.
But he's not -- -- and to donate -- that I thought I wasn't a CEO of van patter or idea that somebody Bain Capital -- -- those companies he made the -- -- the president has no responsibility for what happened to Solyndra.
What I'm saying is that Mitt Romney and I'm asking about -- president.
-- men rather -- that -- the president has no responsibility for Solyndra.
The president has responsibility for the Green jobs program that where he made investments and -- by the company Solyndra then -- background.
But the decisions that were made excellent that ultimately led to their bankruptcy or those of the people who worked for -- Mitt Romney than Chris unanswered question pretty well I think -- candidate Romney.
