The Dumbassery is Astounding: Dodd for Treasury Secretary?

January 7, 2010

Really, Obama? Are you truly that incompetent and clueless? If so, I’m even more scared than I was before (hold me) and I do believe that a new word must be invented just to describe your level of dumbassery. Hot Air has the oh-so-disturbing scoop:

This isn’t some no-name nutroots blogger pushing this. It’s Roll Call, citing multiple Senate aides. Really, Democrats? Countrywide Chris guarding the federal coffers? At a moment when The One’s taking heat for being too cozy with Wall Street, he’s going to appoint a guy whose pool of Wall Street donations over the years is so deep he could do the backstroke in it?

Speculation has also begun about potential employment for Dodd in the Obama administration.

For instance, several Democratic Senate aides noted that Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is an extremely unpopular figure in the Senate. Geithner has also taken the brunt of the criticism for the administration’s handling of the economy and, these sources speculated, if the country’s financial picture does not brighten before Election Day, he could be the first secretary to leave the administration.

Although Dodd would appear to be well-situated to take control of Treasury if the position were to open, it may not be smooth sailing for his nomination.

May not be smooth sailing? Dude, if this comes to fruition, it had better result in some of the choppiest, roughest sailing ever. The man is an utter disgrace and, frankly, should be brought up on criminal charges along with his buddy Barney Frank. Dear Obama: That whole “The Economy is Broken” thing? That was in large part HIS FAULT.  Have you even heard of Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac? Sure, they aren’t as sexy as insulation, but they are KEY reasons for the icky economy. Perhaps you should look into that?

What is with the Democrats and their penchant for having the fox guard the hen house, like Elliot “Sock-clad Client No. 9″ in charge of cracking prostitution rings? What’s next? Putting Bill Ayers in charge of Homeland Security? Rats! I’d better not give Obama any ideas.

    I guess I’m surprised if anyone thought he was going away… I’m trying to think of just one single horrible democrat that has gone away… The only ones for whom I can, “away” meant “prison”…

      I know, but a girl can hope, can’t she? 🙂 Plus, I figured he’d be flitting about somewhere, even though he SHOULD be in jail, but Treasury Secretary? It really is like the punch-line to a horribly awful joke!

    This is the price they pay. They don’t care what it is. They have to have their agenda and damn the consequences.

    wouldn’t the confirmation hearings be delicious though? At least if the republicans had any cajones

      That is the one glimmer … the schadenfreude-tastic glee that would ensue. However, I’d need a *guarantee* that his confirmation would be denied in order to truly bask in enjoyment 😀

    Well, look at the bright side. OK, try to, then.
    They could put him in charge of Ft. Knox, the U.S. Mint and Federal Reserve. Wouldn’t that be just peachy? Maybe China will see his leadership potential and snap him up first.

    I think he already has his lobbyist for the finance industry wrapped up.
