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 nations 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.
Frank charged that conservatives aim to shift blame for the market meltdown away from Wall Street and toward minority-lending laws like the federal Community Reinvestment Act.
The bizarre notion that the Community Reinvestment Act . . .

Spin, spin, spin, lie...the truth really hurts the Libs.
Barney Frank will be taken away in handcuffs soon, Barney Frank is the problem not the solution
. . . . .
FR Keyword: moneylist
This can be a high-volume ping list at times.
HEY, WATCHMAN Barney, can we blame it on YOU...aren’t you the guy who has to be watching for this sort of stuff. Ask Herb Moses...if you aren’t the REAL reason everything is going down the tubes. Gosh..own up to your mistakes....BE A MAN!!
Not me! I’m not a bigot! I blame them on homosexual congressmen who have boyfriends that work for Fannie and Freddie.
we blame it on you, barney.
Barnie and Barrie going back to the socialist playbook.
We knew this was coming...
Not at all. I live in California and I can tell you with some certainity the majority of bad loans in this state were made to latinos, many of them illegals. ;-)
I suppose I am a racist now too :-(
Blacks ARE responsible only if they pal around with terrorists.
No... We’re blaming it on you, Barney.
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.
When all else fails, play the race card and watch the idiots in this country fall in line.
Barney Frank is another evil product of Masholeachusetts.
Is Barney now claiming to be black?
“U.S. Rep. Barney Frank claims conservatives are trying to partly blame the nations economic woes on black people. “
He can’t say that! That’s homophobic! How intolerant!
Insofar as Raines was black, then Bawney is correct.
No, Barney. The conservatives are trying to partly blame the nations economic woes on YOU.
Like all evil the libs, a/k/a leftists, must lie to exist. They cannot survive when the light of truth shines on them.
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.
They are similar to vampires in that way!
Conservatives trying to blame economic woes no Barney Frank.
There. Fixed it.
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.
Yes..just what BJC did...BF has ‘a thing’ for Slick. :)
Wishful thinking. At most, Frank will receive a dainty slap on his limp wrist.
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.
Did I hear that you, Barney Fwank, was having sex with a Fannie-type person?
It was those liberals Barney.
While it is true that Massholechusetts elected him, Bawney was born and reared (rimshot!) in Bayonne, New Jersey.
Funny. Dodd, Frank, and Pelosi look pretty damn pasty white to me.
And all these years I thought Barney was gay, not black.
Step up to the plate kids..
I am an embarassed Masshole..only ‘cause I live here.
What a nut!
Has the sinkmaster been sleeping with Barney???
I think Barney would actually enjoy prison....
You know somebody has landed a solid hit when they start playing the race card.
When the book comes out, the title will be
“Franking Freddies Fanny”
He is trying to use the old RACE card to shut people up. If McCain has a brain in his head, he will start putting this in ads and expose this liberal welfare scheme for what it is and what it caused.
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.
