Friend of Angelo, Chris Dodd, gets heckled by a passer-by during a live interview. The heckler rightly informs Dodd that he is history next November.
Via Newsbusters (with video):
In the midst of a left-slanting report on Sen. Chris Dodd’s (D-CT) triumphant return to his home state, there was a brief moment of sanity provided by (presumably) a Dodd constituent.
This can’t be a good omen for Senator Countrywide (hat-tip to FireAndreaMitchell.com):
REPORTER: A tired, but triumphant Senator Chris Dodd meets the media just hours after passing health care reform in the Senate, but he is heckled from a passer-by.
JOHN Q. HECKLER: You’re not going to get re-elected.
SEN. CHRIS DODD: And uh – thanks. Merry Christmas!
With any luck, next Christmas Dodd will be a member of the dreaded private sector and will live long enough to be subjected to ObamaCare.
The most famous Friend of Angelo was on Meet The Press this morning and said that the billions in compensation which Goldman Sachs plans to pay out this year is an outrage.
WASHINGTON (AP) – Financial companies that were shored up by taxpayer money are now paying their employees big bucks in compensation and benefits.
The chairman of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee says that’s a source of outrage in the country.
One company that has received government money, Goldman Sachs, has said it has set aside $16.7 billion for compensation so far this year. That’s more than a half-million dollars per employee.
Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut says such companies need to understand that what they are doing is an outrage. Dodd says the government should look into taking action to get those companies to back up and reconsider what they are paying out.
Dodd may want to think long and hard about stepping into the fray on this one. After all, it was Dodd who was responsible for adding language to the porkulus bill which allowed for $165 million in bonuses for AIG employees….which he admitted to adding after he was busted for lying about it.
Pot, meet kettle.
