    What do you mean by "entrenched, big government liberal politcs"? Sure, Senator has liberal leanings, but he has also cast votes to cut taxes for the middle class and the poor. He has voted to raise taxes on the highest 1% or the uber wealthy.

    Okay, he did some good but you cant have it both ways and say, "He served under Bush". That doesn't slice the cake. He made his own decision while he served all these terms, right?
    We may not agree on everything but I bet we could find some common ground.

    I didn't mean to imply that he should not shoulder any blame due to the crisis we are in now. What I meant, was that we are all responsible for the crisis. Both parties deserve blame for putting us in such a bad position. Banks deserve blame for giving out loans to people who could not pay them. The people themselves deserve blame for buying houses they could not afford. You can not put the fiscal crisis we are in now in the hands of one party, or one person, you need to put it on the shoulders of both parties. I am a democrat, but I realize my party is also to blame for setting us up to fail, and Senator Dodd deserves his share of criticism for it, because of his leadership position in the party.

    My point was that, regardless, he has done so much more good for the state of Connecticut, than bad. He deserves the recognition for it.

    Uber wealthy, sounds like something a Nazi would say.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I don't understand the reference to Nazi, nor do I appreciate it. So please explain to me what you mean when you say that uber wealthy is something a Nazi would say. I have been called many things some deserved, some not, but to compare me to a regime that advocated genocide is not something I deserve, that is way over the line. So please explain to me what you mean when you call me a Nazi.
