Jaded, what is your point?
Do you honestly think we would get these facts from a fellow Democrat?? He may be disingenuous but more importantly is he accurate and truthful?
ALL of these weasels protect each other. So if you choose to, focus on Rennie. I will choose to focus on the elected official that represents me so poorly. He is an embarrassment.
Whether he gets a "big shout out" from our current President means nothing to me. Probably shouldn't mean anything to any CT resident.
You make an excellent point Middletown Joe. Each of us has the right to focus on any part of the political process. I am resigned to the sorry state of our elected officials; there is too much money in the process to hope for ethical leadership.
I am more and more concerned with the growing biased coverage by the media (from both sides) and the lack of transparency. The media are not the protectors of truth, that task is left to philosophers. With that said I want more facts from the media that can be checked and either confirmed or denied.
As to the accuracy and truthfulness of Mr. Rennie’s information, we have to take his word – as I understand that the land record has not been made public and that Mr. Rennie’s alone has seen it to report on it. I will take his word on it but still find it disingenuous that he did not disclose how he came into possession of the information.
I believe that both of us would agree that the news can manipulate and be manipulated by any one from any political leaning or news organization. We as citizens have to ask ourselves do ethics matter? Ethics are either applicable to all of us, or none of us. I believe that if you are going to hold Senator Dodd to an ethical benchmark, you should hold those who professionally critique him to the same. That is my point.
