If Barney Frank were a Republican who responded to every question by blaming Democrats, he would become a punching bag for those in the mainstream media. But, it’s only we right-of-center bloggers who notice the non-answers and mean-spirited rhetoric that this unhappy Massachusetts Democrat offer whenever he’s asked a question not ready made for his left-wing talking points. He just goes ahead and attacks Republicans, oftentimes demanding that they live up to a standard he could never meet.
Here, we’ve got Andrea Mitchell asking this career politician about SEC officials watching porn on the job and instead of addressing their dereliction of duty, Barney blames Republicans!
Over at Hot Air, Allahpundit sums it up, “Because, see, the GOP favors less regulation of Wall Street, which naturally was all the country’s chief securities policemen needed to know to justify spending thousands of work hours surfing sites like ‘skankwire.'”
Seems Barney’s default answer to any question he can’t answer (or where the answer might conflict with the narrative he’s peddling) is to blame Republicans. (Guess he didn’t get the memo from the President about the change he’s trying to bring to Washington, you know breaking that pattern “where everybody is always looking for somebody else to blame.“)
Barney keeps trotting out the same old rhetoric, the same old attacks and folks in the media think he’s so smart. Guess we know what counts for intelligence in their book.
