Chris Dodd, V.I.P.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 10:09 pm

While the Obamamedia focuses on the upcoming Ten Inaugural Galas, some journalists have not forgotten about Senator Chris Dodd’s promise to make public the documents relating to the favorable mortgage terms he received from Countrywide Financial’s “V.I.P.” program.

Dodd claims he had no idea that he might be getting V.I.P. treatment because he is the chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, the committee that writes legislation concerning organizations like Countrywide Financial. This is a guy who received more money than any other senator from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac between 1989 and 2008. Chew on that for a minute.

He made his promise of full disclosure six months ago, but to date has not produced anything, but that will not stop him from chairing the Banking Committee.

Let me pose a rather simple question to those of you who own a home. How long would it take you to assemble the documents relating to the purchase of your home? For my part, I bought my house more than three decades ago and the mortgage has long since been paid, but I figure it would take me all of about five minutes to gather up all my mortgage documents.

The arrogance of this prick is stupefying.

I’ve decided that the voters of Connecticut are just about as stupid as the voters of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, Louisiana and, yes, Minnesota.

What in Christ’s name will it take for the voters of those states say, “Enough!”?

  1. I have concluded that once someone is elected Senator, they have to die before voters will vote in someone new. It’s like they all look at the ballot (those who bother to vote – one wonders why they bother) and say…

    “Oh, there’s a name I seem to have heard before, let me vote for that one!”.

    *sigh*

  2. Never pass up the opportunity to mention that Dodd is only slightly ahead of Obama in the monies received from the FMs.

  4. That pretty much sums it up, what it comes to our Federal representatives, CT is a pretty liberal state and we have had our fair share of corrupt elected officials. Our last governor spent time in jail and I think we have 2 mayors still in jail.

  6. One word covers all the criminals in government. ‘Politician’. Nuff said.

  7. Would I be foolish to think that the FOAs, “Friends of Angelos” names were picked randomly out of a hat? Surely the fact that one-half of a Senator Sandwich Dodd was chairing the Senate committee had nothing to do with the friendly terms.

  10. I grew up in CT, and ever since I can remember Dodd has been a Senator, though I cannot figure out why. As far as I am concerned, he and his elitist attitude have been pretty useless for the state.
