Democratic incumbent Chris Dodd, facing strong GOP opposition in his own home state and who decided not to run for re-election as a result, is going down swinging at anyone he can connect with… fellow Dems included. Following last week’s GOP success in Massachusetts, the nothing-to-lose senator from Connecticut suggested his party should take at least a one-month time out from trying to reform health care, to allow everyone to regroup following his party’s loss of its filibuster-proof majority.
Dodd’s need for an effective fat burner diet pill aside, he provided a rare common-sense comment on the issue he was demagoguing to swift passage only a few days ago. Dodd apparently blames the Obama-Reid-Pelosi hardball push on health care reform on his own perilous drop in the polls and “voluntary” decision not to run for re-election.
Interesting. Very interesting.
