Sorry your Republicans are only interested in their pet projects. Sorry that instead of trying to work with Obama, Republicans just cry or refuse influential posts in his Cabinet as he promised to do.

I already showed the reasons that the exemption was allowed to proceed, based on Treasury Dept fears of lawsuits that might derail the package from rolling out in the time frame needed. Sorry you are too attention span deficient to understand politics and would rather rail against imaginary injustices in order to preserve your already fragile world view.

I have no idea of the inner workings of all this stuff and neither do you. The difference is that I am not going to jump on every Drudge Report story that comes out to be able to say I TOLD YOU SO until that one is refuted and the next one pops up.

There is usually some kind of rational explanation for all these actions, whether its due to bureaucracy morass, staff communication, political tradeoffs, or in some cases graft or corruption. Dodd is certainly not a saint when it comes to working with these companies, but given his recent scrutiny it would not have been a politically good idea to purposely allow exemptions to happen - again what do I know?

Looks like they avoided potential lawsuits and left them an out to get some of it back. I know you have a simple mind that can only grasp Limbaugh type momentary outrages until the next shiny object comes into view, but just perhaps these people have a more nuanced look at how things can actually get done, and not just knee jerk react to the issue of the moment in order to placate people like you.[/QUOTE]

Why Do LIBS, Always Make Personnel Attacks a part of any argument??

Maybe you should read the rest of my posts before you say that. I make personal attacks against G5 because reason and intellectual honesty have no effect.

And FYI - we ALL make personal attacks here, it's a sign of affection. Except for G5, he really is an idiot.

You should just stop at

I have no idea of the inner workings

because you're exactly right.

And look at the details of what IS known and make a determination. If this administration/congress were MORE transparent and honest with the American people...this could've been avoided. Now we know WHY they didn't want people reading this before it was rushed to be signed...AND have the great One's signature on it despite his guarantees of seeing bills before they're signed.

and on his campaign website...

http://www.barackobama.com/issues/ethics/

but keep on keeping on making ME the issue because you're purposefully ignorant to what you know is right. Making me the strawman doesn't change the fact Obama/Geitner/Dem Congress could've been MORE OPEN and prevented a lot of this nonsense. Things could've been worded differently to where AIG could've compensated work not finished without attempting to bypass tax laws through bonuses. But no...we HAD to sign this damned bill or the world would collapse.

Go ahead...make ME the issue again you freaking mind-numbed liberal piece-o-crap.

What this ALSO tells me is that we have a lazy media.

The MEDIA should've scoured the bill after it was passed/signed and these specific AIG bonus exemptions found and presented to the American people...then Senators/congressmen should've been grilled over exactly why the wording was there. Did anyone see anything like that?

The media is LAZY.

Hang on, shouldn't Bush or Cheney or any number of people in his administration have scoured over this bill and pointed it out, he did sign it right?
