Dodd’s Dangerous Dance. Plus Dodd vs Kudlow?
Instapundit continues to blaze the web trail tacking everything and all Dodd and we are more than happy to help get the word out. You can catch it here.
Like any Washington survivor who senses that the political tide is shifting, Dodd knows he must swim with it or sink in its wake.
And for Dodd, the danger of drowning is quite real. He’s up for reelection in 2010, and he has seen his poll numbers drop dramatically since a report last year about his alleged special mortgage deal from Countrywide Financial.
“Dodd actually is a vulnerable incumbent right now,” said Gary Rose, chairman of the government and politics department at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Conn. “This is an effort on his part to once again re-establish himself as a man of the people.”
Absolutely … As we mentioned on the show, who doesn’t own three homes, two of which we know are or were valued at about a million bucks. But my favorite part is this ….
But can Dodd make that turn and still count on the support of financial services firms — or at least those that still exist — to keep pumping money into his campaign coffers?
Plus: The Courant is reporting CNBC’s Larry Kudlow might challenge the Countrywide Kid … how about that?
Ha! The Countrywide Kid! I love it!
You know Dodd is in trouble by the number of rehabilitative commercials asking us to "thank Chris Dodd…." for getting us into one or another financial mess disguised as a reasonable entitlement (oxymoron?).
From his website: "Dodd’s commitment to public service and human rights was instilled at an early age by his parents, the late Senator Thomas J. Dodd and Grace Murphy Dodd."
Would that be the same Thomas J. Dodd that was censured for censured by the Senate in 1967 for financial misconduct?
That apple didn't fall far from that tree. Or is it a slice off the old ham?
Please let Larry go for a primary so that we can vote for him way before November. Then, Dodd will be a lame duck. He does not deserve to lead us.
I agree, but I don't think "lead" is a word I could associate with Dodd. Unless "lead" is code for graft and malfeasance.
Dodd???? YUCK…..oust him now and we will all be better off! He now is inside the fire-pit
