Is there no end to Barney Frank’s insults?
Can’t a man as intelligent as he express in disagreement in the form of counterarguments? Will the media continue to let this unhappy man get away with his mean-spirited remarks?
When Texas Republican Congressman John Culberson today “blasted Democrats for passing the stimulus, which permitted AIG to lavish billions on executives after the de facto federal takeover,” the Massachusetts Democrat fired back, saying Republican criticism was part “of a psychological disorder I am not equipped to diagnose.”
This from a man who grandstanded about AIG bonuses even after he had voted to allow them, a man who refuses to acknowledge his own role in the financial meltdown, errors of judgment he made about the financial soundness of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Can you imagine how the media would react if a senior Republican so smeared his partisan adversaries? They went after Tom DeLay for much less.
Barney Frank owes Representative Culberson and GOP critics the same kind of apology then-House Majority Leader Dick Armey offered him in 1995.
