Chris Dodd Lied!! What a Surprise!!
He who is the defender of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, he who has been the recipient of favors from Countrywide; Yes-siree! For years Mr. Dodd has pulled a fast one on the American taxpayer, running interference for Fran and Fred as both institutions made risky bets on mortgages that were made to people that could hardly make the mortgage. Mr. Dodd successfully deflected any real criticism of the mortgage giants while the populace reveled in the collective heat of Bush hatred and as it fell under the spell of silver tongued Barack Obama.
Does it stop there? No! Mr. Dodd took it upon himself to insert the loophole that allowed bonuses to AIG executives. When he was first asked by CNN whether he had inserted the loophole—Dodd said NO! Later he recanted on CNN! I swear that you could not make this stuff up! Incredible!
BTW, Dodd's darlings--Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are going to give out fat bonuses too. Hee..heee!
Update: Chris Dodd blames Obama administration for bonus amendment. I bet that the White House knew of the loophole; This means that when Obama tells us that he's "upset" about the bonuses to AIG employees he is basically lying and faking it--the man signed the stimulus package. And since we are constantly told that he is so "smart" he knew what was in the package. Democrats are running around feigning anger since they have realized that they rushed the package through and defended not having read through it; Americans are falling for this whole scam hook, line, and sinker.
