Obama’s Senate Buddy Rapes the Aviation Security Bill to Give to A Supporter of His Failed Bid for President!

Sen. Dodd, D-Conn., slashed aviation security funding for pet constituency

Senate Banking Committee Chairman Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn. arrives on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Dec. 22, 2009, for a series of votes.
Now that our attention is focused on airline security measures thanks to the failed airline attack on Christmas Day, it’s worth mentioning that one senator took money away from aviation security to line the pockets of a constituency that supported his presidential campaign in a big way.

Back in July, Senator Chris Dodd, D-Conn., proposed an amendment reducing aviation security appropriations by $4.5 million in favor of firefighter grants — a notoriously inneffective program. In fact, the money removed by Dodd was specifically “for screening operations and the amount for explosives detection systems.” The amendment was also sponsored by Sen. Lieberman, D-Conn., and Sen. Carper, D-Del., but Dodd deserves to be singled out here because the firefighters union is a pet constituency of his. In 2007 he campaigned all through Iowa with the firefighters union. It was one of the few distinguishable features of Dodd’s ill-fated presidential bid.

My words of commentary begin below:

It is bad enough that we ended up with Barack Hussein Obam as President but think of what it would be like with Dodd, Teddy Kennedy’s old drinking companion. He takes money from an Aviation Security Bill and gives to a campaign supporting group (I have absolutely nothing against FIREFIGHTERS) but I do have some thing against giving their union money that was earmarked to improve the safety of air travel JUST becuase the union supported your asinine bid for President.
Dodd has been in the Senate too long, way too long! He is being investigated for alleged fraud in the Countrywide Mortgage scandal, he sits in a powerful Senate seat doling out money and favors like this for his and Obama’s friends and supporfters. Where was this in the main stream media BEFORE the Christmas Day tragedy??

Something about this STINKS and it is not the Firefighters, It is the Democrat way of doing things!
