Politics above country

Obama, eternally in campaign mode is wrapping his arms around the unworthy Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd, while buffoon Biden stumps for little known Connecticut Congressmen, all up for election in 2010. Dodd’s disastrous poll numbers show the Connecticut Socialist, friend of Fidel Castro and Latin American Leftists is in political peril with coat tails long enough to bring other Connecticut Democrats down with him. Hence the sudden attention to a state that’s been solidly and deeply blue, virtually ignored by presidents and presidential hopefuls.

Chris Dodd used his committee chairmanship over the banking industry to shake down the financial sector for gobs of campaign money. Scoring sweetheart deals along the way he unabashedly sold his position and created legislation favorable to the financial sector that led to the mortgage crisis, Chris Dodd bear market and the monstrous and growing multi trillion dollar deficit which will burden taxpayers for generations. Apparently Obama is good with that as long he can count on Dodd’s yea vote for any and every piece of Socialistic legislation.

President Obama, in showcasing Dodd, is all but admitting that his policies are in trouble and attempts at passing legislation palatable to the sum total of his filibuster proof congress has thus far failed and unlikely for the foreseeable future. He desperately needs to hang on to his majority Congress beyond 2010 in order to force feed us his socialist agenda, however he’s looking at a very possible future as a lame duck.
