Barney Fife (Frank) Strikes Again
This morning, the news broke that Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass) wants to cut defense spending by 25%. A huge cut in defense when we're in the middle of a two-front war, and while Barack Obama's running mate is guaranteeing an international crisis in the first months of Obama's term -- should he be elected. Brilliant, isn't it?
This is the same Barney Frank whose gay lover was running a call-boy operation out of Frank's house a number of years ago. It is the same Barney Frank who, along with Chris Dodd, helped push the low-income loan scheme that snowballed into the current financial crisis . . . and the same Barney Frank who apparently had another former gay lover who was an executive with Fannie Mae. Talk about a conflict of interest.
Why this national disgrace keeps getting elected is beyond me. If he was just affecting his home state of Massachusetts, I guess it wouldn't bug me as much because they get what they pay for. However, Frank's moronic behavior and views are impacting the entire nation.
He should have been removed from office long ago. Jail wouldn't be a bad idea, either.
