After dishonestly stating
that he is a member of and giving the impression that he is the Chairman of the US Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs we should all hope that Senator Obama can perform his imaginary job and at least attend Tuesday's hearing
, if not take the Chairman's gavel. Attending Tuesday's scheduled hearing would be more than Obama has accomplished in the committee that he actually chairs, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee's Sub-Committee on European Affairs which has jurisdiction over NATO's role in Afghanistan, the sub-committee has yet to meet. Last February Obama said that the committee had not met because he "became chairman of this committee at the beginning of this campaign," he was refering to January of 2007.
I would like to see the reaction of Senator Dodd (D-CN), the actual Chair of the Banking Committee if Obama actually showed up. The hearing will be in Room 534 - Dirksen Senate Office Building at 10:00 AM EDT.
