Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank says Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh is right that Capitol Hill's partisanship is getting out of control.

But Frank says his fellow Democrat could do more to change that by staying in Congress and helping change the filibuster rule than by stepping out of public service.

It's everybody elses fault.

"But Frank says his fellow Democrat could do more to change that by staying in Congress and helping change the filibuster rule "

In other words they can be non-partisan by handing total power to the democraps by simple majority

Hey, dummy, that’s why there are “parties.” It’s not about everyone “just getting along” it’s about doing what the people want and if the people DON’T want what the “other” party is sellin’ than the people shouldn’t have to buy it.

The party that handed over the writing of legislation to special-interest think tanks and locked the GOP out of the process is complaining about hyper-partisanship?

Absolutely.

These guys are setting the stage for using simple majority votes in the Senate, to get things passed.

Of course back in the gang of 14 days, there wasn’t any partisanship whatsoever.

Democrat super-majority = healthy bi-partisanship

Opposition party begging to differ = partisanship out of control.

Yeah, tell the opposition party to "STFU" as your monopoly on procedures dwindles.

Barney was WRONG on Fannie Mae and he's wrong now.

"I won."
-Obama

"We've got some work to do. I don't mind, by the way, being responsible. I expect to be held responsible for these issues because I'm the president," Obama said. "But I don't want the folks that created the mess -- I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them just to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess.

"I don't mind cleaning up after them, but don't do a lot of talking,"

He's probably right...Most Americans don't like the Marxist/Socialist path that Zero is trying to take us down.

In Barny Frank’s world, words mean what he says they mean. In this case, partisanship means not agreeing with him.

Why not just suggest those from other parties shouldn’t be allowed to run for office and their supporters not allowed to vote?

Gots to believe most putrid liberal Massachusetts politicians and perverted scum like Frank are a little nervous about now.
Frank should be in jail for a long list of his deeds/

Personally I’d like to see him put in a hospital by his constituents. Break his legs.

I love partisanship. I wish it to increase geometrically. I want them caning each other on the floors of the House and Senate. I want duels at dawn on the West lawn.

I want somebody to stand for something.

Like I said yesterday, hyper-partisanship began on Nov. 5, 2000, when Al Gore told George Bush not to get "snippy" about his rescinding of his conceding the election of 2000.

The Left turned on everything Republican, with a vengeance, ever since then.

Does anyone ask WHY?

If you push an agenda that not only is diametrically opposed, indeed antithetical, not only to the agenda of the other party, but the agenda of the people as well, why in Hell’s Bells would anyone expect even a smidgen of accommodation?

I don’t know why Frank is not in prison. He , more than anyone , caused the housing fiasco and thereby the economic crash we have now.
Fag boy needs to be arrested and tried .I’m sure the one thing he will never be is HUNG!

This is their new BS, that voters are turned off by all the “fighting” on tv. I heard Robert Reich serve up this muck this morning.

Rather than face that voters are upset over their liberal policies.

Frank should take the hint and retire himself. He has done much to destroy the foundations of this country and put our great grandchildren into debt. He is a monster when it comes to tax and spend Democrats.

Isn’t it funny that Democrats didn’t care about the filibuster rule until they lost the filibuster-proof majority?

Exactly. The only bad part about partisanship is when neither side will even listen to the other or let the other speak; otherwise, voting as per party principle is what’s supposed to happen.
