Welcome to Whoville Chris Dodd

Kevin Rennie wont let go … so neither will we. Let’s see if the Courant follows suit … although I doubt it.

Sen. Christopher Dodd sounded like Dr. Seuss without the depth last week. “It is what it is,” declared Dodd, mistaking Hartford for Whoville, when he told The Courant’s Rick Green that he had no plans to release documents from his $800,000 in sweetheart mortgages from subprime titan Countrywide Financial.

“There is nothing to the story and I’m just not going to keep on repeating it,” pronounced Dodd, as he morphed into Yertle the Turtle. “‘You hush up your mouth!’ howled the mighty King Yertle. ‘You’ve no right to talk to the world’s highest turtle.'”

Dodd will serve the state green eggs and ham before he’ll honor his pledges to release the documents from deals that will save him tens of thousands of dollars over the terms of the loans. Nonsensical answers, however, won’t smother persistent, serious questions about Dodd’s abuse of his office.

    It's about time we held Sen. Chris Dodd accountable for his actions. We must vote him out of office.

    Yeah, I posted about this on Friday… http://conservative247.org/national-politics/603/

    My exit question: Since Dodd’s special financing was only a fixed low rate for the first five years – most likely ending this summer – what kind of deal does he have now on the mortgage?

    Dodd the Fraud has to be nailed on this and his role in the financial debacle we find ourselves in.

    Everytime he says "the regulators did or didn't do X, Y and Z" I am forced to remember that HE was the regulator.

    What a shame that the liberal media is so complicit in the coverup and the perpetuation of Dodd's career of destroying America from within, mostly through his own ineptitude and greed.

    I would equate Dodd's behavior equal to a bank robber running out of the bank with sacks of money and when the authorities show up he says WHICH WAY DID THEY
    GO?????? He's worthless? When he was running for President and moved to Iowa what was he doing for the people of CT.???
