RUSH: Meanwhile, the government is hiring. Drudge has this up on his page; in case you haven’t seen it, I wanted to run this by you. The new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau — which, for all intents and purposes, is illegal since it has not been congressionally approved. This, I think, is the organization in which recess appointment has taken place. The guy to head this up. The job at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is to keep track of invitations. They want to pay somebody with no qualifications over $100,000 a year to keep track of invitations. (interruption) No, no, I’m not kidding. “Job title: Invitations coordinator. Agency: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Subagency: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Salary range: $53,500 to $102,900 per year.”
Qualifications? All you gotta do is be a US citizen! To keep track of invitations, fifty-three five to 103 grand a year to keep track of invitations. Now, you might be asking, “What kind of invitations?” Well, I don’t know. It doesn’t specify what kind of invitations. Well, what kind of invitations are there? I mean is this place gonna be throwing a bunch of parties? And they’re going to be inviting people to parties and events? The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? Which, again, is illegal. Congress has not approved it. This all took place with the recess appointment. So what — so do you want to be a leader in your field, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? You can. You can be in charge of invitations at this new government agency: $103,000 a year.
RUSH: By the way, this job offering that we mentioned, “Invitation Coordinator;” I looked into it further. What it actually is is somebody to coordinate all of incoming invitations for members of this Consumer Finance Protection Board. It’s assumed they’re gonna be invited to go to external meetings, panels, roundtables, conferences, and other events all over the country. Like Bank of America might invite ’em to show up to something or Wells Fargo or other government agency, so they’re gonna be flooded with invitations. This job is to coordinate the incoming invitations. It’s sort of like the job H.R. has. Of course H.R.’s job is just to say “no” when I get all the invitations.
It’s all the answer he has to give, and everybody that asks gets told “no” twice to see how serious they are. It’s a very easy job, actually, once you master saying no. It’s very difficult for some people to say “no” to people, and… (interruption) They do what? (interruption) Yeah, but this agency doesn’t. It’s a brand-new agency, Snerdley! It’s a brand-new agency, and they’re saying they’re gonna be flooded with requests for their “experts” to go appear on panels and seminars, and so this job is to handle all the incoming invitations. The way I read it, I thought this guy was in charge of sending out invitations to cocktail parties.
