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.
