Skip to comments.Frank and Gingrich keep sparring over who’s to blame for the subprime mortgage crisis
Posted on 11/17/2011 6:08:46 PM PST by bkopto
A war of words between US Representative Barney Frank and Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich reached new heights today after a report that the former Speaker of the House earned at least $1.5 million in consulting fees from mortgage giant Freddie Mac.
It all started in October, when Gingrich during a GOP debate suggested that Frank should be imprisoned for his role in the subprime mortgage crisis. If you want to put people in jail ... you ought to start with Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, he said, referring to the Newton Democrat and the US senator from Connecticut. Then, following a report by Bloomberg News about Gingrichs consulting fees from the mortgage agency, Frank today denounced Gingrich as fundamentally intellectually dishonest.
Hes a man with no ethical core whatsoever, Frank said of Gingrich in an interview with the Globe. There are a number of conservatives whom I respect
Newts just never had any principles, so no Im not surprised about this at all.

Hotbottom did it.
The Mass-of-two-sh@ts continues to re-elect this D-bag. Incredible!
As long as this story is out there, more people know about Frank’s malfeasance. His responses show he’s getting nervous.
Who can forget Sen. Chuck "You better get your money out of WaMu, it's going bust" Schumer?
Hes a man with no ethical core whatsoever, <<<
“Hotbottom” has spoken!....lol
if he had advertised as “Horny Heterosexual” he would have been impeached from Congress!....Think about it!
i’d love to see frank and dodd in jail.
Barney Frank talking ethics???.. ethics???...
He might getting ethics lessons from Charlie Rangle..
I’m not sure Frank can even pronounce the word “ethics” correctly..
Entering into a conversation with a democrat..
Is like falling down a bunny hole.. Barney looks increasing like the Mad Hatter..
There is a divine intervention here though in that Bawney Fwank can’t pass on his genes...
Wonder how long it will take all the Newt Bashers to jump in and side with Barney.
Oh yes, we should believe Barney.
...after a report that the former Speaker of the House earned at least $1.5 million in consulting fees from mortgage giant Freddie Mac.
Now that is a debate I would like to see, frank trying to pull a hissy fit while debating Newt.
I don't think I can take much more of this.
Exccuuuuuze me, but I THINK something is a little wrong historically here with this article.
“The government created Freddie Mac in 1970, joining it with Fannie Mae, in an effort to make mortgages more affordable. Their troubles began in the 1990s as both took on risky loans and more debt at the urging of the Clinton and Bush administrations, which sought to increase home ownership.”\\
I’m just an old guy with a really bad memory. But I THINK Fanny and Freddie were created in THE FREAKIN 1930’S BY FDR. I read their home pages, and that’s what they say.
If I’m wrong, please someone correct me. Flame me all you want, but I do think those ‘quazi governmental’ entities waaay predate the ‘70s!!
So much bulls**t, so little time to correct.
Hoping that some other Freeper who is sane and sober can check this out.
That queer should be hung by his balls for his role in Fannie and Freddy. Ditto Chris Dodd!
