Microphone drencher and liberal Congressman Barney Frank (D-Rumpranger) paid a visit to Harvard University, that bastion of conservative thoughts and ideals, and decided to mix it up with a student over his role in and responsibly for the financial mess this country currently finds itself mired in. While I do admire the young man’s ability to stand up to the slobbering congressman he did seem to have a bit of an issue staying locked onto his underlying premise which was to get Frank to admit his enormous amount of responsibility for the economic meltdown. Unbeknownst to the student liberal Democrats have a pathological inability to take responsibility for anything they do or tell the truth about it when it all falls apart.
Politicians in general and liberals in particular are under the misguided assumption that all Americans are mind numbed braindead fools with little ability to recall the past. I believe those assumptions could partially be based on the fact that crooks and liars like Frank, Chris Dodd, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid continue to get re-elected term after term.
In the video we can clearly hear Frank turn the facts completely upside down by claiming it was his committee and Congressional Democrats that were trying to force through stringent regulations onto Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and restrict subprime lending while the Republicans fought tooth and nail to prevent this legislation from going anywhere. Nothing could be further from the truth. His claim that there is a “systematic right wing attack to try and divert the blame for their deregulation” is patently false and this liar knows it.
The problem is we cannot depend on the mainstream media (except for the reviled-by-the-moonbats Fox News) to relay to the public anything close to the truth about what really happened once the Democrats gained control of Congress in 2006. The Democratic control of both houses of Congress was another important fact that the media had kept on the downlow prior to the election. In fact, after the election news reports indicated some 40% of the voters thought the Republicans had full control of Congress throughout George W. Bush’s eight years in office a misguided notion that clearly helped Obama’s presidential bid.

The obviously confused Barney Frank needs to have the record set straight so let’s take a look back at what was really going on in Congress as the genesis of the financial meltdown was beginning to take shape.
The truth sure can be a real “pain in the ass” and something to “choke on,” (puns intended) ….huh Bawney?
