You remember that language that was inserted into the stimulus bill that gave corporations like AIG the authority to pay out those huge bonuses with taxpayer dollars?
We knew that Senator Dodd was the one that changed the amendment into the stimulus bill. (Even though Senator Dodd denied it yesterday, he is now admitting today that he was the one that did insert the amendment.)
Anyway, Senator Dodd changed the amendment at the urging of the Obama administration! There goes Obama, thrown right under his own bus.
Dodd acknowledged his role in the change after a Treasury Department official told CNN the administration pushed for the language.
Both Dodd and the official, who asked not to be named, said it was because administration officials were afraid the government would face numerous lawsuits without the new language.
Dodd, a Democrat, told CNN's Dana Bash and Wolf Blitzer that Obama administration officials pushed for the language to an amendment designed to limit bonuses and "golden parachutes" at those companies.
Obama was just outraged after finding out about this, or so he said on Monday. Turns out it was the Obama Team that pushed for the bonuses to be paid!
So who is surprised that we were "mislead" by President Obama? Anyone?
Oh, and that is not the only time President Obama mislead America, besides his entire campaign of misrepresenting himself, Team Obama told us that the President just found out last week about the bonuses. Turns out, Team Obama not only knew but they fought to give execs excessive bonuses with our tax dollars.
