Would you believe they’re both Oklahomans?

July 26, 2010

Elizabeth Warren, chair of the panel overseeing TARP, and chief conceiver of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, has fans a-plenty among the common folk and in the media – with op-ed pieces in her favor from The Washington Post, the New York Times,  and even the Wall Street Journal.  She also has a few detractors.  For example, bankers, according to the New York Times, oppose her nomination for the same reasons that many favor her – her known lack of neutrality.

Another Oklahoman often in the news, Senator James Inhofe, takes credit for killing the climate bill last week.  But there may be other players.  When it came time to push for the legislation, President Obama was a no-show, perhaps worn out by his efforts to complete the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill.  Inhofe, meanwhile, ever on the lookout for evidence of global cooling, criticizes ABC News for failing to fry an egg on the sidewalk.
