Who Was That Masked (E)Man(uel)?

The American Spectator : Plenty of Rahm at the AIG Table

Neither did Republican input; no Republicans were present in the negotiations in the Speaker’s office. Both Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, who served as a conference manager on the bill, barred Republicans from the negotiation table.

And, surprisingly, neither was Chris Dodd, who was not one of the three Senate managers for the conference negotiations.

So the mystery remains: who had final sign-off on the Dodd language insertion on AIG’s retention bonuses? One thing seems certain, Rahm Emanuel isn’t talking, and neither are Pelosi or Reid, who were also in the room with Emanuel, Orszag, and Summers when the final language was worked out.

It’s pretty certain that whenever Obama and the Dems need dirty deeds, done dirt cheap, that’s where you’ll find Rahm Emanuel. (via Instapundit).

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
