Skip to comments.Barney Frank: The President Has Really Turned Around The ‘Mess of The Economy’
Posted on 05/31/2012 8:49:32 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
During an interview with CNNs Suzanne Malveaux, Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) discussed everything from the Trayvon Martin shooting, to gay marriage, to his upcoming retirement. And while none of these are surprising for this congressman to talk about, the eye-opening moment occurred when he said (with a straight face) that president Obama has helped turn around the mess of the economy.
When you look at the election, you look at the campaign season here, Malveaux said, What do you think President Obama has done right, that hes gotten right? And what do you think he really needs to work on?
What hes clearly done right is to help turn around the mess of the economy, Rep. Frank responded. He inherited the worst economy since the Great Depression. Interestingly, because he was trying to be somewhat bipartisan, he did himself a lot of political damage by not stressing how bad things were.
Actually, Rep. Frank, do you know why the President failed to stress how bad things were? Its not because he was trying to be bipartisan. Its because he and the president has admitted this on more than one occasion! didnt know how bad things were.
And I think thats part of the reason people said Oh, well, gee! He didnt move quick enough, Rep. Frank continued, In fact, the American economy today, of all the economies of the advanced nations in the world (Japan, Europe), were doing the best. And were doing the best because were mixing policies.

Now weve been retarded, Rep. Frank said, by conservative opposition. We have created in the United States, since the beginning of the turnaround in late 2009, maybe about four million private sector jobs.
I think [President Obama] has dealt with the economy well, the Massachusetts congressman concluded.
Its all well and good if Rep. Frank wants to believe this, but an overwhelming amount of recent data might disagree with him. Perhaps Rep. Frank would like to tell the 8.1 percent of unemployed Americans (11.1 percent real unemployed) that the president has really helped turn this economy around.
Yea, Bwaney. ‘Turned it around and took in the......’.
What hes clearly done right is to help turn around the mess of the economy,
I’m old but I’m not stupid.
Where is this idiot coming from? Nevermind....I know.
And they’re coming to take me away ha-haaa
They’re coming to take me away ho ho hee hee ha haaa
To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I’ll be happy to see those nice young men In their clean white coats
And they’re coming to take me away ha haaa!!!
Yes. Yes you have.
Our national “flame” speaks. Retire, idiot, and let America move on.
Yeah, when he started his occupation of the Office of President the economy was going in a bunch of different directions. Some sectors up, some down, some stagnant, some doing their own thing, exploding into existence, shrinking away to nothing, etc. Now hussein has turned all that around alright - everything is headed downhill, circling the drain.
Re where is this idiot coming from? Boston, Massachusetts, where baked-bean farts aren’t the only thing to get blown out of their asses.
Every time the libs fart, they suffer brain damage, and Frank is the prime example of this.
Franks and Beans! (CSI line)
Wash your mouth out,Barney and then kiss your boyfriend!
NOPE!...I've already puked enough...thank u very much
It’s a good thing Bahney is hanging it up. The boy has gone totally over the edge.
....’cause if there is anyone who knows what’s going on in the real world...it’s a career politician. (extreme sarcasm)
It was Barney and company who pushed for the abuses at Freddie and Fanny that destroyed the economy in the first place. (not Bush) They had the idea that it was a right to own a house, and the lending requirements were discarded. Many people who didn’t have the money or credit rating were able to buy a home. This caused the collapse.
More proof that Liberalism is a mental disorder.
The least President Obama could do is give the economy a reach-around.
Why even bother to comment. Bwarney lives in his own little world and they know him there.
When our national security is being jeopardized by an economy so fragile, it could collapse with the slightest jolt, the Obama Regime puts out the Big Lie. It is all campaign politics as thin as lipstick on a pig. The only thing missing is the stink of the B.S. which got covered up with a bottle of Michelle’s Creed Acqua Fiorentino.
I want some of what Barney is smoking.....errrrrr.......maybe not.
...and made it worse, Bawney.
Every economic indicator is worse now than under Bush.
