Barney Frank: Conservatives trying to blame economic woes on blacks By Jerry Kronenberg | Monday, October 6, 2008 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Business & Markets

U.S. Rep. Barney Frank claims conservatives are trying to partly blame the nation’s economic woes on black people.

“This is an effort I believe to appeal to a kind of anger in people,” Frank, a Newton Democrat who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, today told a Boston foreclosure-prevention forum.

Not me! I’m not a bigot! I blame them on homosexual congressmen who have boyfriends that work for Fannie and Freddie.

Shut up. You FUBARED this problem to begin with, white boy.

Attacking the economic problems is not racially based. Calling Barack Obama the affirmative action candidate that he is, is racially based not to mention true.

Well Barney, Freddie and Fannie were both in the back pockets of the Congressional Black Caucus and it was some of those members that were the most vocal in fighting regulatory changes that could have prevented the collapse of those entities. Calling a gardening tool a gardening tool is more than appropriate here.

OK MA FReepers, who is the person running against this fool? This would be a perfect thread to post it, and anyone who can should help him get elected, so the American people can be rid of this buffoon as soon as possible. He has shamed all of us for far too long.

Have a source to back up some of that certainty? I can tell you the majority of potentially bad loans (alt-a and subprime) were NOT made under CRA (#'s for 2006: 1T in shady loans, 60B in CRA)

And it was that kind of shameless demagoguery that got us into this mess in the first place. No more! Congressman Frank, the American people have had enough of you using race as an excuse to bully your political opponents.

Nobody cares if the people are black, white, or pink with yellow polkadots. If they can’t pay back the loan, they shouldn’t get the loan.

Common sense shouldn’t take a vacation because someone’s race.

Influence Peddling. Bribery. Willful Misconduct. Racketeering under the RICO statutes. (Likely) Blackmail. Hope Barney didn’t spend it all, cuz he gonna need him some lawyer pals to help defend hisself.

A lot of people here want to assign all or majority blame to democrats or to whoever. It doesn’t compute, cheap credit in the quantity we got it was only possible with Greenspan and the shady financial securities industry. Sure, Congress got their dibs in but they were just sponging off the gravy train.

As a life-long MA resident, I hang my head in shame over the MA Congressional delegation, as loathsome a rogue’s gallery of communist, cowardly, lieing, anti-Semititic, thuggish, murdering, child-molesting, thieving, perjurering, Christian-hating, enabling bums as ever was seen in these United States. My apologies to all Freepers.
