  •  Nothing There With Dodd (1+ / 0-)

    From my own personal experience, there was no "there" there with Dodd about the Countrywide Financial allegations.  I refinanced my own property in CT at around the same time Dodd did, albeit with a different West Coast bank.  The interest rate I arranged was very close to Dodd's, well within the range that one would expect for the simple fluctuation in rates over the course of a few weeks at the time.  The charges against Dodd about this issue were simply bogus, simply intended to smear him.  Had Blumenthal pursued the charges against Dodd for the Countrywide smear, it would have simply been a waste of my state's resources.

    •  True, but, (0+ / 0-)

      at the same time, Countrywide was defrauding people, shoving them into ARMs, deep into the subprimes, et cetera and Blumenthal missed that part completely.

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
