I think Barney Frank fragged himself.

In all seriousness, these statements by Frank are damning to him and the Democrats. It casts the financial crisis in a new light of responibility. Bill O'Reilly should be ready to blow a gasket over this on Monday--as should the rest of the country.

“Fannie Mae Chief Executive Officer Franklin Raines, two of his top underlings and select
individuals in the "green" movement were inventing a patented system to trade residential carbon credits.
Patent No. 6904336 was approved by the U.S. Patent and Trade Office on Nov. 7, 2006 --
the day after Democrats took control of Congress. Former Sen. John Sununu, R-N.H.,
criticized the award at the time, pointing out that it had "nothing to do with Fannie Mae's charter, nothing to do with making mortgages more affordable."

"It wasn't about mortgages. It was about greenbacks. The patent, which Fannie Mae confirmed it still owns with Cantor Fitzgerald subsidiary CO2e.com, gives the mortgage giant a lock on the fledgling carbon trading market, thus also giving it a major financial stake in the success of cap-and-trade legislation."

bookmark.

The question isn’t if Bill blows a gasket. The question is if Bill covers it at all.

Heh, kristinn thanks for cross-posting this on FR, this one is going to get juicy in the coming weeks.

I’ll leave it at that, Frank is on record along with all those Dems and Reps, and the businessmen who rent them out by the bill, and can be hoisted upon their own petards by the few media outlets not owned by the aforementioned businesses.

Yep, but what are the odds that wasting money on Barney is going to do anything. Too many other high probablity targets.

But if you have the time, leave no stone unturned. I would love to see him back in the line.

Sadly, for the most part his constituents Are pathetically proud and they will continue to be when faced with the tornadoes of truth. Bwaney is their man.

Sick, twisted and pathetically ignorant...oops forgot dangerous

Read this with your best Mr. McGoo voice in mind, and you’ve only scratched the surface of what an idiot he sound like.

“or you could leave that benefit in place and distribute it more fairly. That’s what we chose to do with the affordable housing fund.””

So basically, Barney Frank WAS responsible for forcing bad loans to be made.
Talk about a smoking gun....

I love it when Dems and their friends across the aisle, Rinos, get caught telling the truth for a moment. Great find!

Our only hope is that the Obama zombies change channels, FROM Oprah and Judge Judy TO Fox news (Like that’ll ever happen).

I usually don’t see the words stunning and Barney Frank in the same sentence.
And isn’t it humorous that his parents put an “R” in both his names :>)

What is amazing is that there is a District so screwed up that they keep returning him to Congress.

In all seriousness, these statements by Frank are damning to him and the Democrats.

I’m still amazed that people think that Democrats will be held accountable for anything. What planet are you from?
They’re going to label you a ‘homophobe’ and nothing you say,from that moment on, will be given any credibility .
