Barney Frank Loses It on Sunday Show (WATCH)
FoxNation.com ^ | May 13 | Staff

Posted on 05/14/2012 7:42:05 AM PDT by JesseWatters

On this weekend’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” outgoing Democratic Rep. Barney Frank locked horns with Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who wanted to focus on economic issues instead of gay marriage. Frank, an openly gay member of Congress, claimed that Blackburn was relying too heavily on talking points. Blackburn objected to Frank’s assertion, but then Frank lashed out at Blackburn and host George Stephanopoulos.

I am surprised Barney didn’t display his inner Jan Brady and respond with “Marsha, Marsha, Marsha...”

Barney lost it years ago, in fact, he never had it.

It's all understandable. The blushing bride-to-be just has premarriage jitters.

Thank God I’ve known some very good and capable gays, because were Bawny Fwank to be the only example, I’d actively campaign for their extinction.

He is a repulsive and disgusting (almost) human being.

Bawney lost it against George Stephanopoulos?

That's too bad. They might have made a cute couple. < / sarcasm >

The question begs...

Will Romney go after him and Dodd if he wins ( and the House and Senate are a wipeout victory for the (R's) yes I am predicting it...) ?

Or...

Will he let Scott Brown run the block and cover for Bwanney and Fidelity ( Research it on Business Insider, what Scott Brown has done for Fidelity ). ???

Given his ties to Mass, I'd say Romney will not do anything....

Barney Frank does the same thing in every interview. He starts spouting off at the mouth, lying and then when interrupted, says “don’t interrupt me, may I finish” etc. It’s his tactic. He thinks he’s always on the floor of the House and that the “chair” should allow him to speak.

Barney was trying to fillibuster and keep his opposition from making a point.

Standard leftist “jamming” technique that they are trained in.

Think of the legions of clean up crews needed just to mop up the metric quarters of spittle that erupted forth from the gay gas bag. Thank goodness, the political death knells of government tyrants slinking into the sunset, their work having been done.

The end is about all you need to watch.
Barney, like all leftists when confronted with the failures of over-regulation, claim that their opponents want no regulation or oversight of industry.

Classic strawman.

"Barney lost it years ago, in fact, he never had it."
wholeheartedly agree...his intelligence? ..his scruples/mores? or "his virginity? "... neither;
"you can't lose, what you never had".
shouting @ interviewers/debaters doesn't mean you win the debates..you've already lost badly.

I was waiting for someone to post this.

Sunday Barney Frank debates Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn on ABC this Week and didnt get the support from George Steph that he got from Chris Matthews last week when the two beat up on clueless Tony Perkins on Hardball. Frank kept on asking Steph for help but from the look on his face he was unimpressed with Frank's constant whining.(This was funny.)

What I loved was the fact that Blackburn acted so polite and professional and adult while Frank had one hissy fit after another, All I can say is I want Frank on all the network shows representing gays with his hissy fit act.

Steph must have been thinking :”This idiot Frank is blowing it for us

“don’t interrupt me, may I finish”

If you didn't interrupt him he would still be talking today long after the set lights had been turned off and the camera crew went home. If he were polite and let his debate opponent finish but insisted that respect be returned while he completed his statement he might be respectable. But Frank will interrupt his opponent after three words and then demand that his interruption not be interrupted.

He's like a soccer player who goes for the groin kick, but will flop on the ground demanding a red card if he gets bumped.

Contrary to some opinions here, I think the whole 15 minutes is well worth watching as a short but accurate primer on TDB (Typical Democrat Behavior).

Franks continual bloviating and spewing, interrupting and interjecting, and spun-out tantrums showcase exactly what’s wrong with his party.

Blackburn was a model of civility and maturity by comparison.

Hey, kids! Who would you prefer to be in the halls of power?

Since Bawney is a special person (being a practical, practicing homosexual), I devote this rant to him:

I’m all fagged out. Too bad each state doesn’t enact a no fag law that would keep these lecherous, evil sodomites in the states that swoon over them!

Fags should pay an extra tax that would pay for their exclusion out of the sight of decent people. These wierdos are walking time bombs who commit the large majority of murders in the nation. After years of ingesting another male’s fecal matter their brains have become short circuited and they pose an enormous danger to children.

They’re striving for ‘equality’ with normal human beings is patently ridiculous. Who wants a fag teaching youngsters how to shove their pee-pees up another male’s poo-poo? If only the misguided homosexual sycophants would just stop and think about what these subhumans do to each other it might seem as though crime against God, man and nature is being committed.

Oh, congratulations on your ‘marriage’ to you long-time sex partner you piece of human debris. Where are you going on your honeymoon? Hell is nice this time of year.

That spittle is gross - very hard to look at that man/woman/whatever when “it” talks.

Yes, I think it was Dick Armey. There have been no shortages over his name either. Which, I have to admit, is kinda’ funny.

I have a kinda’ name that I’ve been teased about, too, so I feel their pain!
