Dodd: my statement of yesterday is no longer operative

Turns out that the Dodd Amendment, which permits things like AIG bonuses, was drafted by Connecticut’s Senator after all. Yesterday he denied any such thing, saying someone else fiddled with his bill after he released it from his care. But that was then and today is today. As Obama said about the $900 billion pork-stuffed budget, “we’ve moved on.”

    Classic Dodd. 2010 can’t come soon enough. Time to push this buffoon out of office.

    BTW, Mr.Dodd is also the largest recipient of AIG campaign contribution to federal candidates between 1989 and 2008.

    Dodd is a disgrace, and most likely corrupt.

    “Most likely corrupt”? I have a bridge for sale I would like to discuss with you.
    And Chris Dodd needs to learn deny, deny, deny.

    Obama should take full and direct responsibility for this mess.
