How the Fed Failed to Tell Obama About The Bonuses - washingtonpost.com
the bonus clause wasn't in the original bill......it was put in after the fed and the white house asked that it be put in.....dodd stated as much today in an interview.....
but the tan george bush speaks well so he will be given a pass......
Tanned George Bush... ROFL... Oh man... Poor George; he don't get NO Respect.
If this administration is lying over its complicity in this mess, that is one thing that will cause enough in the press to investigate.
Obama was questioned briefly regarding the issue on his way to tape the Leno show - his response was as strident and shrill as I have seen him yet.
The guy looked a bit spooked.
This story might have some real legs folks...
this is getting interesting
Is that a racial slur? (jk)
Fuck, that is so witty!
I think we need to step by step blow by blow accounting of everything involved in this issue before any of us can really understand it.
I SUSPECT that the takeover of AIG was so fraught with complications and details that NO GOVERNMENT ADMINSTRATION (neither the Bush II admin or the Obama Admin) really understood what was happening.
That does not mean that NOBODY knew what was happening, merely that expecting that either POTUS to know about it, is simply ridiculous.
There is no doubt now that Dodd lied about the amendment. He's now changed his story. He now admits he's the daddy of this. There's also no doubt Rahm Emmanuel knew, he was in the closed-door session with Dodd when the amendment was added. If Rahm knew, Obama knew. Let's not kid ourselves.
All the faux outrage and claims of ignorance is just a smoke screen. Claims of ignorance? "Ok, we're incompetent." That's the defense?
They still don't get why this isn't playing well with the folks. They think it's the money, it's not. It's the lies. It's the claims of ignorance. It's the faux outrage.
Based on what we know now it sure as hell looks like you're right.
