So this is making the rounds on Libertarian and Republican blogs. If this gets media traction, I suspect this AIG bonus situation is going to be Obama's first real political (as opposed to genuine) problem.
Quoth (with hyperbolic language taken out as it doesn't add to the message):
You know those AIG bonuses making national news that the Democrats are all upset about?
Chris Dodd: For AIG bonuses before he was against them.
"While the Senate constructed the $787 billion stimulus last month, Dodd unexpectedly added an executive-compensation restriction to the bill. That amendment provides an 'exception for contractually obligated bonuses agreed on before Feb. 11, 2009, which exempts the very AIG bonuses" they are outraged, OUTRAGED about.
To review, Democrat Dodd added an amendment specifically protecting those bonuses, the Democrat Congress passed the bill, and Democrat President signed it into law days later.
And now Democrats are outraged that AIG has done this?!?
Here's a bonus:
"Sen. Dodd was AIG’s largest single recipient of campaign donations during the 2008 election cycle with $103,100"
