The Beast, a Buffalo-based liberal newspaper, in ranking corrupt Democratic Sen. Dodd the 38th Most Loathsome American of 2009 :

The Hartford Courant reported Nov 9,2009 that Dodd refused to say whether his Senate campaign committee's payments of $60,000 last summer to a Washington law firm, which has a history of representing Democratic senators in trouble, were for his defense in the Senate ethics investigation of his dealings with Countrywide. Dodd suggested, before he fled to his third home in Ireland in August, that Countrywide was not cooperating in providing information.

Dodd still claims there was nothing unusual about the $800,000 in mortgages he got from Countrywide in 2003, but records refute that, too. Documents indicate that Dodd was getting a mortgage of $276,150 on his second home in Connecticut on July 3, 2003. The amount was reduced to $275,042 and the mortgage he was refinancing was paid off. Dodd and his wife also got a home equity loan on their Connecticut property in East Haddam from Countrywide that day.

But the course those loans took was very strange. The standard routine is for the homeowner to sign the loan documents, the borrowed money is sent to the lender being paid off and the new mortgage is recorded on local land records within a few days. Dodd, however, signed some but not all of his loan documents himself.

Agents of Countrywide signed his $275,042 Connecticut mortgage. His previous mortgage with Countrywide was paid off but the new mortgage did not appear on the local land records for an astonishing 16 months.

For nearly a year and a half, Countrywide failed (or declined) to secure its interest in Dodd's home by taking the ordinary and essential step of presenting the documents to the local town clerk and recording them in the land records. This is exceedingly rare in the mortgage business.

Can you please tell me al the positive effects of FDR's presidency? I don't remember the 1930s and early 1940s being so positive on the United States. Now this is another response by you that has no factual evidence to support your claim and more opinion with no substance.
Like I explained, many of FDR's policies were constitutional because he was able to load the court with his own progressive cronies. What, do you think he was going to put in justices that would stand up against his unconstitutional policies?
Now while you sit back and think of another two sentences to come back to this comment, please tell me where democratic policies have reduced the poverty in America? What FDR policies have bettered the United States, because I see a bunch of ponzi schemes that are about the bankrupt the country. And please, keep judging my comments with "nuts" and "clueless", it only points out that you have no substantive comment.
Most of what he did was good -- the banking regulation that the Republicans undid, the CCC, the WPA, the PWA, rural electrification. I'm not going to debate you any more because it is clear that you are unalterably convinced that Democrats are evil, and that there is no way to reach you. Have a nice deluded life.

If all you hear is NO, then you fail to investigate the ideas of the opposition. To say all they do is say NO is lazy and makes you look like a progressive zombie that listens only to the MSM. Why don't you look at the economic plans of Paul Ryan. Why don't you look at his alternative to HCR that actually REDUCES the deficit. Why don't you look at his Roadmap to recovery. Yes, it reduces social program spending like SS and Medicare, but tell me when are we finally going to be like adults and actually FACE THE FACTS, SS and MEDICARE ARE BROKE.
So don't sit back and say all they say is NO. You're either a liberal, you're lazy or you're completely blind to investigating legislative ideas.
There you go...because I don't agree with you I must be a LIBERAL! That's so tired and so old. It's your pat answer when I don't agree with you. It's what keeps the far-right from connecting with the middle. Here's my opinion, and when you don't agree 100 percent with me, I call you a name. Boy, that sure accomplishes a lot.

You asked a question, I called you out on the rug for being a lazy person. If you don't know the various ideas of the opposition, you are in fact lazy for not informing yourself. You're dang right I'm going to call you a liberal, a progressive, a zombie if you're going to generalize and say, "Oh, they just say no all the time. They have no ideas, they just obstruct progress." That's what is tired and old, lazy people who have the information at their fingertips (thru the internet) and yet they still shield their eyes.

As for calling you a name as the only point to my post, you are even lazier. I guess the whole comment about Paul Ryan must have disappeared off the screen. But you're right, I just called you a name and left it at that.

Let me see, I'll go through all of my previous posts and then yours. Which person has substance in their comments, which person has none?

Your opinions about people like FDR are baseless. Your republican buddy Hoover did exactly what George Bush did and ran the country into the ground with the help of the rich and their lobbyists. You are blind if you want call out Roosevelt. Right now, conservatives are on a campaign to make those in power look as bad as possible by bad-mouthing everything that's done, without offering a real option. When your best representatives are Rush, Glen Beck, Pahlin and Bachmann, it's hard to argue against what I'm saying. All that group does is talk negative. Give me one thing that bunch has offered besides negativity. And if you think they're your saviors, think again. They use people like you to make MONEY...lots of MONEY. That's why Pahlin has made 12 million since last summer telling your bunch what they want to hear without any substance.
