Drip, Drip, Drip … More Rats Fleeing the S.S. Obama.
More carnage in the Democrat party for the upcoming 2010 midterm elections. Long time Nutmeg State Democrat Senator Chris Dodd is to announce Wednesday that he will not seek reelection in 2010. The mortgage scandal plagued Senator found himself in real trouble and behind in the polls for reelection.
ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST!!!
A five term Democrat out as they had no chance of winning reelection! Another one bites the dust …
Embattled Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd (D) has scheduled a press conference at his home in Connecticut Wednesday at which he is expected to announce he will not seek re-election, according to sources familiar with his plans.
Dodd’s retirement comes after months of speculation about his political future, and amid faltering polling numbers and a growing sense among the Democratic establishment that he could not win a sixth term. It also comes less than 24 hours after Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) announced he would not seek re-election.
The Countrywide mortgage scandal made Dodd, the Senate Banking Committee Chairman almost impossible to reelect. In the midst of a banking and mortgage fiasco, we have Dodd getting sweatheart deals. One has to wonder how viable a candidate is when they are behind in the polls to the wife of WWE owner, Linda McMahon. OUCH! Of course this is probably good news for Dems as Dodd did not have a chance in hell of winning. However, how much of Dodd’s corrupt sins will the new Democrat candidate have to overcome and pay for?
It truely is D-Day for Democrats or as Another Black Conservative calls it, “Dead Men Walking”.
My what a difference two years make, from 2008 where Dodd ran for the Democrat nomination for the presidency to out on his can in Connecticut. It is a sign of the times for Democrats as they scurry out of office before facing humiliating defeats.
Add another one to the list of Democrats on their way out the door.
