...as those who will not see...
Those who shouted the loudest for the heads of the AIG execs had the dirtiest hands. President Obama was outraged at their greed. But he alone signed their bonus provisions into law.So, how exactly does this work? How can anyone... right, left, drunk... schizophrenic... hell, comatose... rationalise this behaviour?
And during the recent presidential campaign, no one forced him to accept over $100,000 in AIG donations.
Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, Connecticut Democrat, was the fieriest in his denunciations of Wall Street greed. Yet he was the very one who inserted the bonus provision into the bailout bill, despite later denying it.
And Mr. Dodd has taken more AIG money than anyone else in Congress.
Does Obama still get to be "The One"?
Behold the deafening silence.
