The Dumbassery is Astounding: Dodd for Treasury Secretary?
(cross-posted at iowntheworld.com)
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.
