AIG, A Farce in Three Acts Continues: Dodd says Obama Officials told him to put in bonus loophole…

Who knows who will end up under the bus in this latest installment…

the maroons at the WH seem to be trying to hang Ben out to dry on this (they soo out of touch, TOTUS is in SoCal doing William Jennings Bryan-esque speeches for fraks sake), this while the market is praising Ben’s leadership with today’s FOMC move (see Ben the Bold), and all America feeling tight with Ben after 60 Minutes..

if anyone needs to be the scape goat it is Timmeh. who wrote the crappy bailout as head of NY Fed and Dodd isn’t going down quietly either….

So we have Geithner, Dodd and who next to complete the Three Little Maids From School, Gilbert & Sullivan number? At least make it entertaining if we all have to suffer..

CNBC:

In a stunning development, Sen. Christopher Dodd said that Obama administration officials asked him to add language to last month’s federal stimulus bill to make sure the controversial AIG bonuses remained in place

MiM isn’t stunned. Kanjorski who discussed these bonuses with Liddy and Treasury in October isn’t stunned…only the frakkin media could claim to be stunned…

“I did not want to make any changes to my original Senate-passed amendment, but I did so at the request of administration officials, who gave us no indication that this was in any way related to AIG,” Dodd said in a statement released by his office. The nearly $800 billion stimulus bill was approved by Congress in February.

So Dodd is saying he got rolled by AIG and Team Obama, no surprises there….back to you at the WH…

The White House did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment
