Skip to comments.Is Linda McMahon's opponent Chris Murphy Chris Dodd’s Evil Twin?

There is a reason Republican Linda McMahon is leading her Democrat opponent Chris Murphy in the race to fill the soon to be open Senate seat from Connecticut.
Theyve seen this guy before and the last time he used the name Chris Dodd. Dodd is gone now but he is the Evil Twin of Chris Dodd and the voters of the Nutmeg State dont want another Chris Dodd.
After finally seeing the end of Chris Dodd in 2010, we all hoped the damage he and Barney Frank had done to us, with their Dodd/Frank Bill, could begin to heal.
Now we have to rethink that optimism because we are seeing Dodds return in the candidacy of Connecticut Democrat Congressman Chris Murphy.
The specter of the return of another Chris Dodd is enough to scare anyone who cares about Americas chances of ever recovering from the years of suffering under Barack Obama.
Consider these connections between the Evil twins Chris Dodd and Chris Murphy.
In 2007-2008 Chris Dodd was Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee; at the same time Chris Murphy was a member of the House Banking Committee.
In 2003 Dodd got a below market Countrywide Financial Corp mortgage on his Washington, DC and Connecticut homes.
In 2007 Murphy also got his below market rate mortgage. His was from Webster Bank and it was on his Connecticut home.
2008 Dodd claimed his loan rate from Countrywide was at a competitive rate which it was not. He denied any political pressure on Countrywide which was ridiculous.
2012 Murphy, who got the below market rate from Webster despite his poor credit, also denied his mortgage was the result of political pressure.
June 2008 Dodd proposed a program to assist sub-prime mortgage lenders like HIS pals at.....

Is she still winning?
WWE’s Linda McMahon: Proof that a conservative can be made from a mugged progressive.
“Is she still winning?”
If she does, it will be very close.
Obama should win here easily.
The only reason I can see her winning via split tickets for both Obama and McMahon will be liberal females who vote for her simply because of her gender (the same reason as why blacks vote for Obama).
She had been leading but the most recent polls have her falling behind Murphy.
This is the first article I’ve seen that connects Murphy with Dodd. While it’s a good article with lots of good connections, the Dodd-Murphy connection isn’t why Murphy is losing.
McMahon is beating Murphy because she is running a fantastic campaign. She started the election season by introducing herself. No attacks ads. Just presented herself as a real person. And she never really attacked the other GOP candidates. They were very positive ads, and they worked well.
Then she started attack Murphy before the primary season was over. She has two awesome attack themes:
1) Murphy never shows up for votes.
2) Murphy used his influence to get himself a sweet loan.
They have been highly effective. The democrats have poured a ton of money into Connecticut, but it isn’t working. His latest move is to try to point out how bad pro-wrestling is for “the children”
Were they twins, Dodd would be the evil one.
McMahon is running ads in both the CT & NYC markets. She has tons of money to do that. The ads attack Murphy’s sweethart mortgage loans and influence peddling with the same bank. They are effective because the race is close, although in blue CT she has a tough path to winning.
Murphy comes off as a sleazy DC insider, Chris Dodd lite.
WEBSTER BANK, I'm surprised that you gave this MORON a below market rate!
Jeez, I might have to rethink my business with them. (have an account with Webster Bank -- great bank.)
