In commemoration of the ‘legacy’ of Barney Frank, I herewith present the following. Click to enlarge.
From Media Research Center:
Like a python that bites its victim and then slithers out into the night, Rep. Barney Frank has injected enough deadly toxin into our economy through his role in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to leave our nation teetering on the brink of collapse, but you won’t hear that in the liberal media.
Instead, the networks are busily spinning his legacy as if he were a beloved Broadway actor, referring to him as “one of the most familiar, powerful and colorful characters on Capitol Hill.” Well, he was a character, who perhaps lacked character. For 32 years, Frank did play a role as a public servant. Unfortunately for the American people, his role was anything but convincing, and his lasting legacy is as the chief architect of the housing crisis, that brought our national economy to the brink in 2008.
But again, you’ll hear a different story from the liberal media. You’ll hear them beam that Frank was “the first Member of Congress to publicly acknowledge that he was gay back in 1987.” Or how “Longtime lawmaker brokered critical deals as skilled negotiator,” or the best of all from our friends at the NY Times, “Barney Frank, Moderate”
The liberal media’s silence regarding one of their heroes shouldn’t surprise anyone. But, the fact that he’s bowing out now — thus avoiding difficult questions about the Housing bubble, kick-backs, and good-old-boy politicking — should concern all of us.
