Tag Archives: Dick Blumenthal makes Dodd look almost human

One crook replaced

Back to the Old Country

Dodd quits. He’ll probably be replaced by Dick Blumenthal which is no improvement, but at least the new boy won’t have the seniority, and thus the clout, of Dodd.

UPDATE: Business Insider has the same thought on Bluementhal. I’d say they like him less than I do, but that’s impossible.

UPDATE UPDATE: I missed the link – Blumenthal has already announced his candidacy.

Blumenthal in all his ignorant, arrogant bloom

I don’t know who the interviewer is who is mentioned in this story but he exposes Dick Blumenthal for exactly the toad that he is. Great job.

Beck interviewed Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal on his March 30 broadcast. But, the radio and TV host took the opportunity to tell Blumenthal what he thought of his investigation into the bonuses received by American International Group (AIG) executives – whose company received federal bailout money.

“Look, you know what you have done, know what you have done?” Beck said. “You have – you are an insult to George Washington, sir. George Washington made it very clear that we are a respecter of laws, not of men. For your own political gain, you have decided to go after these people at AIG because it is a popular thing.”

“And while I may agree with you that it is obscene, I would like to know, is not what’s right as a rule of thumb – not what makes us feel good,” Beck continued. “You, sir, are to protect people and, and to stand for the law in Connecticut, so, again, I ask you, sir – what law gave you the right to go after them? What law did they break?”

Blumenthal claimed the AIG executives were “undeserving” of the bonuses. Blumenthal also pointed out the bonuses paid out were to increase next year. However, Beck pressed Blumenthal on the legality of that and Blumenthal came up blank in this exchange:

BECK: Is that against the law?

BLUMENTHAL: Well, it is against public policy. And it is unsanctioned by law.

BECK: Is that against the law?

BLUMENTHAL: It should be against the law.

BECK: Is it against the law?

BLUMENTHAL: It’s against the public policy and against the taxpayer…In my view it is unrequired by law.

BECK: It is a yes or no question. Counselor, it is a yes or no question. Is it against the law?

BLUMENTHAL: It is not against the law and I have never said that it is against the law, and I have never said that we would bring an action.

An idiot reader called me anti-Semetic because of my earlier criticisms of this ma. I call the reader an idiot because, had he bothered to read my columns and posts over the years, he’d know that I have always attacked Blumenthal for exactly the behavior displayed here. It has everything to do with abuse of power by a publicity-hound crazed by his own ambition, and nothing to do with anything else. Reread the interview and see for yourself.
