Barney Frank - genius
FYI - Barney Frank accused of cooking books for gay lover Herb Moses (executive at Fannie mae)
September 26th, 2008
Congressman Barney Frank is the Chair of the House Financial Services Committee. Barney Frank, who is openly gay, had a past romantic relationship with Herb Moses, an executive for Fannie Mae. Barney Frank’s involvement was alleged to have persuaded him to “Cook the Books” (finance accounts) for Fannie Mae.
The Washington Post reported this story in its Reliable Source column in July 3, 1998. By the time the story broke in The Washington Post, the newspaper admitted that Barney Frank and Herb Moses had broken up. However, this was conflicting as Barney Frank was heard referring to Herb Moses as his “spouse.” Another report from the same newspaper said Barney Frank called Herb Moses as his “lover”. The two men had remained friends despite the “said breakup.”
MY COMMENT: What kind of nation are we to have such "leaders"?
he is not inept. he's accomplished his goals- to enrich himself at the cost of the taxpayer.
as a representitive of the people, he is inept. but that is a moot point as it was never his goal anyway
He is thief and a liar that gets his way by using the police power of government. His behavior as a politician makes me sick.
Thanks so much for this post! People need to know about the crooks who are running our country! Another name that comes to mind is Chris Dodd...
That second clip is priceless!!! I hate that Barney Frank. He is the biggest uneducated used car / snakeoil salesman in World History. He should be tarred and feathered and made to sit in his own verbal diarrahea in front of the white house.
I don't know abitare. This guy called the Constitution "just a goddamned piece of paper," invaded a nation in a pre-emptive strike with false intelligence, passed the most sweeping anti-personal liberty legislation in history, gave $700 million in bailouts to his buddies before he left, and probably made a bundle for himself in the process.
Barney Frank is pathetic for sure, but GWB has to be the most corrupt and inept liar in American history.

Big oil got money from GWB??????? Actually Chairman Maobama had quite a bit of say about where the $$ went. Don't worry David, GWB is back in texas with his coloring books. I now hope BHO will working on his coloring books in 3.7 years. If you think the Patriot Act was bad, wait for the medical id garbage passes. GWB also has only the power congress gives him. Its obvious in the last 40 or so years most politicos thinks the constitution is "just a goddamed piece of paper"

W has been retired Where and David. Time to get off that tired W horse. That horse is a nag and you guys are sounding like one too. Barney "Less-Than-Frank(s)" is more powerful than ever with O's election and O has doubled and triple-downed on everything that that W had done.
When the GOP (McCain was one of them) brought up their concerns regarding the housing bubble and Fannie Mae's involvement in 2004 and again in 2005 Franks, "Doddering" Dodd, Congresswoman Lee and other DEM pols leapt to their defense making it a racial issue, not only because the housing affordability issue favored minorities but also because Fannie's CEO was black. The GOP, as is their pathetic nature whenever accused of racism, cowered in the corner and did not pressure the DEMs on what they had correctly foreseen as looming problems on our economic front.
So are you saying that as long as the liar is from your preferred pol party that it is acceptable? Like it or not the 435 piggies in the DC sty have most of the power in our republic (they write the laws) and because the most egregious reps come from districts and states that do not care about their views or their penchant for corruption as much as they do their assurance that they, as their electorate, will be given a greater share of the largesse than the other districts, they will be continue to be re-elected.
Term limits or third and fourth parties would solve a lot of this bulls**t but neither of the parties wants to let go of this gravy train and will fight any attempt at change. It is time for the people to finally make it happen. Our democratic republic has been bastardized and we have allowed (even encouraged) it to happen. Not all of the sheep have been neutered though as witnessed by the recent tea parties.
