Barney Frank: Obama 'Just Lied to People' About Obamacare
The Weekly Standard ^ | AUG 2, 2014 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 08/02/2014 11:20:51 AM PDT by Hotlanta Mike

Former Democratic congressman Barney Frank has some tough words for President Barack Obama about his handling of Obamacare.

"The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled -- I don't understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis," Frank tells the Huffington Post in a recent interview.

"But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn't true. And you shouldn't lie to people. And they just lied to people."

Barney was heartbroken when he didn’t get appointed to Kerry’s senate seat.

Bawney, back up to 2007. The Clymer should never have been elected and ...
Oh wait. Because he had a D after his name and was a fellow gay, you helped put him in the Spite House.

never mind!

He didn’t lie to me because I already knew he was nothing but a two-bit punkass liar. I didn’t believe a damn thing he said.

Bwarney lives in a glass house? Didn’t he fudge the numbers of the Fannie and Freddie Federal Housing debacle?

Islam supports lying to achieve end goals. The Koran discusses the subject a few timed. The book doesn’t actually say the word “Lying”. It instead refers to the word “deception”.

Barney came out of the closet in 1987. In 2013 he "came out" as a Jewish Atheist.

Wonder if his little attack on Obama is a subtle sign he'll "come out" as a candidate for office in the near future.....or for a later appointment from a victorious Hillary (perhaps in return for hustling the gay vote for her).

Hard to keep up with all his periodic "comings" and no permanent "going".

Bawney was the biggest supporter of Obamacare because its’ failure would usher in the utopian single payer government run program Bawney wants.

if Barney still had a position of power in government he would be right next to Obama spilling the same lies.

If Barney Frank feels so strongly that politicians shouldn’t lie about the impacts of their policies, why in the sam hill didn’t he say something during the big healthcare debate, before we passed a bill to see what was in it???

When it comes to lying to constituents Bawney’s bona fides can’t be questioned.

Thanks Hotlanta Mike.
The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled -- I don't understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis... he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn't true. And you shouldn't lie to people. And they just lied to people.
He's lying right there.

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

And if Barney goes on talking eventually he says something that is actually true.

Unfortunately, tomorrow Barney will probably deny that he said this and accuse the GOP of twisting his words.

The savviest of politicians know when to abandon a ship before it sinks. They know they can then be cited as a voice of reason against the failed politician.

This means he knows Obama will not be well regarded by history and wants to secure his place as a Democrat who didn’t go along with it... even though he did.

I used to wonder how he injured his speaking voice, then decided I really didn’t want to know.
