Sen. Dodd and President Obama have repeatedly lied about the policy and process which permitted the AIG bonuses to be paid out.Â Obama’s Stimulus Package is the vehicle that allowed this scandal to happen.
So Chris Dodd admitted he misled CNN, telling them on Tuesday he had nothing to do with the loophole that mysteriously found its way into legislation and paved the way for AIG’s bonuses to be paid.Â The following day, Dodd confessed to CNN’s Dana Bash that he in fact wrote the loophole, though he said he did it at the behest of the administration and with the knowledge that he would lose the amendment altogether if he did not comply.
Will President Obama admit this evening with Jay Leno that he too has lied to the American public?Â That he lied about how he permitted bonuses to AIG execs to proceed when he signed the Stimulus Package?Â That he never read the legislation that he signed that was so important to save the economy?
