Barney Frank Gets His Panties in a Bunch

I posted previously concerning our current sad economic predicament, in which Neal Boortz  spelled out concisely what had happened and when, as well as who were the parties most responsible for the mess we now find ourselves in.

Rep. Barney Frank (D – Massachusetts), former chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, who was once quite literally swapping spit with Herb Moses (a senior executive at Fannie Mae) figures rather prominently in the bursting of the housing bubble – as well as the severe economic and financial downturn that came with it.

During the GOP debate held in New Hampshire the other night, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, one of the GOP hopefuls seeking to become the party’s presidential nominee, was asked a question about the Occupy Wall Street protests that have broken out in many cities across America in recent days.

This is part of what he said in his answer:

If you want to put people in jail, you ought to start with Barney Frank and Chris Dodd.

Strong stuff, right? But Newt nailed it exactly.

Of course, Bawney Fwank was not all that happy with the former Speaker having pointed out his duplicity in our current recession (dems never are when they are caught with their hand in the cookie jar) and released the following response:

As to the facts, the Republicans — part of the time under Newt Gingrich — ran Congress from 1995 until 2006, the period during which the financial crisis began and then rose to disastrous proportions. Chris Dodd and I were in the minority during that time, and in fact, no remedial action was taken by Congress until we became chairmen of our respective committees in 2007 and 2008.

Apparently, Newt Gingrich — who considers himself one of the intellectual leaders of the free world — is so embarrassed by the fact that he is running behind Michele Bachmann in Republican polls that it has increased his already well-developed propensity to utter outlandish things.

Outlandish, he says?

Hardly.

Rep. Frank can spin this until he falls down drunk, but there is no way he will ever be able to make this go away:

I hold these people primarily responsible for the destruction of my over twenty-five year career that ended in June of 2007. I had spent those years in an industry very closely related to, and very dependent on, commercial and residential real estate.

I have watched as many of my friends and former associates have literally lost everything they had worked for as unemployment insurance, or whatever meager employment they were able to find, failed to generate enough income to prevent it from happening.

And it has not been just people in my industry, but millions of people across this country who are now in similar circumstances – all because of a still deepening recession that did not have to happen, or could have at least been blunted had certain things been done in time.

These arrogant, corrupt politicians bear the brunt of responsibility for a chain of events that is still playing out today, and that could yet plunge this planet into another global depression.

I do not think it the least bit outlandish to suggest those most responsible be held to account.

  1. Newt would have to lock his own ass up too. This Draft dodging son of a bitch piece of shit. Has everybody forgot that he left his two first wives while they were sick, and all the while, he was having several affairs? You think he wouldn’t run on us again under fire? He is a QUITER! Not counting the scandal he was dehorned for. Just another Ted Kennedy, Looks like he has grown his horns back! He is the person that gave us UN Agenda 21 and he is a believer in the New World Order! I wouldn’t trust this Bastard in a shit house with a muzzle on! Just one more Socialist in line to destroy America! Semper Fi.

  3. Fabulous at last that somehow tells Barney like it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The la Rouche Political Action Committee has a contender for Barney Frank’s seat in Congress, her name is Rachel Brown, and she had a spirited debate with him before the last election. You may remember her, she challenged him at one of his town hall meetings, and he likened having a conversation with her as being “like conversating with a dining room table”. No the tables are turning, no pun intended, and Mr Frank is still full of bravod and bluster, tooting his own horn, but the Dodd Frank Bill is a testament to his duplicity.
    Full of noise but no substance. Pelosi is in boiling water now because of the money her brother Robert Pelosi just got for another Solyndra type enterprise in Nevada, of all places. Sheer coincidence? I think not.
    By money about 700 million dollars. There is going to be a lot explaining to do soon, and these sons and daughters of a gun are riding for a fall…………
    Will Solyndra or Fast and Furious get them all to resign, or the investigation into Freddie and Fannie and the Banking Foreclosure Scam. There is so much piling up against the Administration and the leaders of the Democratic party that it is outrageous that the Wall Street Protesters are not calling them out by name, and each scandal out by name. Time for the impeachment of the Commander in Chief and the downfall of the head of the DOJ and some sensible measures taken to help the country remain a sovreign republic. All this name calling and finger pointing is very good reading but action now is what must occur. If we don’t act on behalf of the republic the enemy………………oooohhhhhhspppoooookkyyyyyyyyyy, will come with something like a takeover by people walkin’ around in big clodding boots……………………………………It can go either way, Newt …………….take the bull by the horns, all power to you.
