Crybaby Barney Frank Plays the Gay Card

Let’s see Barney Frank refuses to take any responsibility for the mortgage mess.  He accuses Republicans of racism when they fault government programs for causing the crisis.

Now, he’s getting all bent out of shape because John McCain, on the campaign trail, is making an issue of the Massachusetts Democrat’s proposals to raise taxes, increase domestic spending and gut the defense budget.  Ol’ Barney says it’s because he’s gay, calling McCain’s attack on his actual statements, “an appeal to prejudice.”

Sorry, Barney it’s not because you’re gay, it’s because you’re a liberal who’s been clearer than any of your colleagues on what would happen should the Democrats win the White House and increase their congressional majorities next week.

I thought that Barney was really smart. Yet, he doesn’t seem to understand where Republicans have been coming from since his first election to Congress in 1980.  All he can do is accuse us of the most nefarious of motives.  Doesn’t sound like a very smart man to me, sounds like a very narrow and intolerant one.

As Allahpundit puts it, Barney “never met a bad-faith accusation he didn’t like.

Grow up, Barney, quit your belly-aching, admit your mistakes, resign from the chairmanship of the House Financial Services Committee and become a role model of responsiblity for gay people.  Because right now you’re an embarrassment to all of us.



  1. I am SO glad I’ve found this site! I thought I was the only conservative gay guy out there!

  2. All of Congress is running away from the disaster that they created with the current economic credit crisis. They all point their fingers at Wall Street greed. Of course Frank won’t resign from his committee chairmanship, neither will the Charlie Rangel, the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee who has underpaid his income taxes. Frank is playing the gay card, which I think is the first for a congressman and Rangel is untouchable because of his race.

  4. It’s not quite as pathetic as McGreevy playing the gay card to get out of his NJ corruption scandal, but it’s still pathetic.

    If we want to be equal, we take our lumps like a real man or a real woman. Retreating behind “homophobia” whenever they’re criticized debases the concept and makes the rest of us look like whiners.

  5. Gay?! And all this time I just thought he was your typical unethical, tax-and-spend politician busy with show trials and lining his pockets with “honoraria” while decrying people who profit by honest work. Wow.

    (I knew he was gay… met him at a Pride Picnic in Tulsa, actually – just being sarcastic).

  6. I have seen both Frank and Rangel on TV and slap on top of their sexuality and skin colour is pure, unadulterated Jerk.

    Have you SEEN Frank? He doesn’t talk, he yammers.

  11. GPW,

    You “thought that Barney was really smart”? I can’t believe it!

    I’ve known all along he was really stupid — and a first class asshole to boot! 😉
