Obama’s recess appointment of Richard Cordray to the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau correctly is portrayed as a naked power grab.

As long time readers know, I really didn’t pay much attention to the 2008 Republican primaries.

It was a late night, and apparently Mit Romney won by 8 votes.  Don’t let anyone tell you voter fraud is not a threat; what if this had been the general election and Barack Obama won by 8 votes in a state, would we not care that people voted without...
