  • Dodd said, "I agreed reluctantly. I was changing the amendment because others were insistent."


    Dodd refused to name the U.S. Treasury officials who had asked him to add the language that paved the way for the bonuses.


    An example needs to be made of Senator Dodd.  First it was Countrywide Financial, then it was Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and now he's lying by omission with AIG.  Not to mention the issues about his former partner, Edward Downe, Jr. and a home Dodd purchased in Ireland.

  • Yes, they all knew from the very beginning. The Washington Crew are just trying to save face and position because of the backlash from the people and even though Geithner knew and was a part of drawing up the documents, he is going to be the fall guy. Seems like only now that we are trying to use our power and position in this country, that the Washington Crew is hollering and acting outraged. Funny, how all them billions got passed them and nobody said a word.

  • I think it's disgusting. Dodd needs to lose his place in Washington.

  • Dodd is so dirty and so is Barney Frank and Tim Keitner. There is talk of impeaching Keitner.

  • I think they all are starting to realize the people are not accepting all their decisions lying down. And, just think. The tea bags haven't even arrived in DC yet.......

  • I think the Dems are learning a very hard lesson now. Last time they had total control like this, CNN was a "passing fad" and Google hadn't yet been invented (Al Gore had just barely invented the net, after all). They didn't have remotely the level of accountability that there is today. They've been oh so happy to shine all that light on everyone else, but forgot that what goes around comes around, and eventually those spotlights were going to come right back on them. The same machine that tore up the Wassilla town hall to read the fine print on every plat and contract has acquired the next available target.
