When will Pres Obama stop all of the "phony" AIG outrage?
Dear Pres BO: Cut the selective indignation crap! This one happened on your watch! Blaming Bush finally ended today!
Today, we learned that Sen Dodd, the same Dem who got a sweetheart loan, had something to do with the AIG bonuses:
It turns out that Sen Dodd got lots of money form AIG:
"Sen. Dodd was AIG’s largest single recipient of campaign donations during the 2008 election cycle with $103,100, according to opensecrets.org."
Guess who was #2? Yes, it was "hope and change"! (Obama Received a $101,332 Bonus from AIG)
POLITICO got it right: Why AIG outrage rings hollow
"Here’s something neither Obama nor Grassley answered in their bellicose remarks Monday:
Why did it take so long for the president and senior lawmakers to get so worked up?
More troubling, why did it take so long for them to discover AIG planned to give huge bonuses in the first place?"
When will Sec Geithener get thrown under the bus? It's coming soon! It's starting to look a lot like Sec Geithner knew of these bonuses!
Someone will have to pay for this AIG oversight!
P.S. Don't overlook the public anger brewing over these bailouts! It will make it impossible for Pres Obama to ask for more money!
