From the Washington Examiner - 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 constituency that supported his presidential campaign in a big way. Sen. Dodd, D-Conn., slashed aviation security funding for pet constituency | Washington Examiner (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/blogs/beltway-confidential/Sen-Dodd-D-Conn-slashed-aviation-security-funding-for-pet-constituency-80209967.html - broken link)

Hey Nutmeggers, why wait for the election, it's time to recall this crook.

Dodd has so much scum attached to his name, if he gets re-elected then his constituents are truly stupid. This same comment probably can be attached to move than 50% of congress.

I think it is time to retire a lot of the old guard. They are all far to corrupt in my opinion.

Dodd and more of the Dem. Senator's should leave before the elections...after the elections they will be history any way but they can ruin so much before their time is up!

I don't think he will. With the Countrywide fiasco and his other ethical problems, not to mention his vote on HC, I think he is one of the dems at serious risk of losing his seat.

The corruption angle will play great, as well as the typical tax and spend liberal fodder.

Paying for health care in 2010 while not getting it till 2013, will angry even more people...even the ones in favor of the health care change....nobody wants to pay and not receive anything back!

And in 2013 people slowly will find out that their health care will go down the drain....
