"How much responsibility, if any, do you have for the financial crisis?"Congressman Frank, how much responsibility, if any, do you have for the financial crisis? Such a question can have been answered with a simple one word answer, None! But apparently not if you are a Liberal and not if your name is Barney Frank.
No if you are a Liberal and your name is Barney Frank you must treat every questioner as a right-wing Republican conspirator. If you are the face of the Democrat Party and the Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee you must assume that college students are operatives for the National Republican Committee who are attempting to blame you for the housing crisis when everyone knows that it was the vile Republicans who caused the housing crisis and you must crush the very life out of anyone who would think otherwise. You must do this even if it is a college student who dares to ask you, a powerful Congressman, a question. (see video)
So if Barney Frank is to be believed, even though he didn’t say it directly, according to Frank he’s not to blame for the financial crisis. But if he actually thought so why wouldn’t he just say that he didn’t have any responsibility for the financial crisis with one simple word, ‘none.’
Congressman Frank is too wily a politician to say anything which he believes could possibly be brought back and used against him. Yet there is historical proof that Congressman Frank is at least somewhat responsible for the financial crisis. (see video)
Finally there is significant evidence that Congressman Frank is at the center of the financial crisis in spite of his brow beating of a college student and his blaming of Republicans. (see video)
Frank is a control freak and political bully who uses classic Liberal Democrat tactics; over talk your opponent, blame your opponent for unjust or nefarious behavior and redirect blame to Republicans. This works for partisan Democrats every time. But for everyone else this is just pathetic and trite partisanship transparent and insulting to the intelligence.
Any fair and honorable American would not vote for Barney Frank.
