    Senators Chris Dodd (D-CT) and Kent Conrad (D-ND) are still fending off questions about special-rate loans they received from Countrywide Financial.
    Countrywide's been at the center of the mortgage meltdown, and the GOP is cranking up the pressure on the two Democratic lawmakers.
    Dodd told reporters yesterday that a loan officer specifically told him and his wife they were getting "VIP" consideration in 2003 when they took out two loans on their Connecticut home and Capitol Hill townhouse.


    But Dodd said he didn't think to ask precisely what that meant. Even though he is chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, which oversees the mortgage industry, Dodd said he "assumed" that "it was more of a courtesy thing."
    From the New York Times.
    "Somebody told you you were in a V.I.P. program," a reporter said, "And you didn't think you were getting ... " Mr. Dodd cut off the reporter and finished the question himself. "A special deal on a loan?" the senator asked. "No."




    I say Dodd's a big fat liar. He's on the committee investigating this mess, and he's knee deep in it.



    Anyone else ?

    It is that culture of corruption the Democratic Party encourages.

    Hmmm, what does that say about the "family values Republicians" who have been found to be anything but practicing what they preached? Is it the sexual revolution of the 1960's that is the culture of corruption of the Republician Party?

    Never put your faith in any political party. Never believe that either party is really interested in your welfare. They are in the business of getting people elected and not in taking care of you.

    Actually, MP, Larry Craig would have had to have been investigating that men's room for sexual crimes, for this to be comparable.

    "Another typical day in the dialectic I see" he says while looking down and shaking his head in total bewilderment at the lengths some will go to be a good "team player". Big sigh...

    He's either lying or he's the world's most naive politician.

    After thinking it over...

    He's a liar.
