Edward Liddy, just recently put in charge of AIG to get the giant back on track, who took no bonus and is getting paid a whopping ONE DOLLAR A YEAR salary, was railed against and threatened by everyone on Barney
Fife’s Fwank’s panel for what he was trying to do with the bonus money for executives. He was grilled and yelled at all afternoon, all the while trying to protect his employees from getting publicly outed to society (recall how well that went in California when the hater gays outed all of those who supported Prop 8??). He even read them death threats people had received, to which our hair lipped heroine (Fwank) commented “All of us here receive those”.
I am confident that when someone dies because of getting a bonus for trying to do the job, Miss Fwank will be there with compensation in hand for the family of said, murdered employee. However, that is not the point of my post, but only a lead in to the real deal.
Chris Dodd swore up and down that he had no clue about the amendment in the bailout bill that allowed companies to continue to pay the bonuses. He then went on to rail AIG for being criminally negligent, an evil capitalistic Satan whose soul was sold to the Wall Street gods. He went on CNN and railed against the insurance giant, vowing to get the money back to the people.
Until today, wherein Mr. Dodd humbly admitted that he, in fact, did add the provision back into the bill, at the ordering of that evil, mean, wicked Treasury Guy. You know, Turbo Tax Tim, who was in charge of getting the bailout of AIG in order along with former secretary Paulsen.
His ass should be in front of the Ethics Committee. He could care less about the people, as long as he stays clean in all of this. Crooks, crooks, and more crooks.
The revolution is at hand. Will you be a leader or a follower?
I really don’t see how Mr. Liddy kept his cool. I would have been like Shepard Smith.
