Obama and Dodd won`t take responsibility and own up to knowing ahead of time about the contractual bonuses. The reason being that AIG spent more than half a million dollars in political contributions to get Obama and Dodd elected.
Oh....and keep in mind that a whole lot of congressmen and congresswomen own stock in AIG. John Kerry`s AIG investment is (or was) currently valued at about $2-million. And he`s only one of many investors from up there on The Hill.
I think it`s much more important that President Obama is hangin` out on Leno, maybe going out for a few beers, playing some darts or bowling, and being "one of the guys." We`re all tired of the gloom-and-doom, y`know? We should have some fun, not be so depressed.
Maybe we`ll see Chris Dodd on "The Daily Show" soon? He can talk about how his management of Fannie Mae was sort of like the Special Olympics event on fiscal responsibility.
But one thing for sure: It`s a good thing we all hate Sarah Palin! Can you imagine how embarrassing it would`ve been if she`d moved into the Vice Presidential residence? What with her son Trig, and all. Can`t have that, can we? She`d probably be out there making fun of ordinary people.
