Hump Day Report: The Poster Child For Term Limits
ALOHA, ALL!! So Barney Frank is retiring – it’s about time. Does anyone doubt that he saw the writing on the wall and realized he’d no longer have the unbridled power he once enjoyed come 2012? He says he wants to move on and do other things (FYI – there is no truth to the rumor that he’s the new football coach at Penn State.) Anyhow, good riddance to the man who brought us Dodd-Frank. Good riddance to the man who did more than anyone to ensure the housing crisis by his bald-faced lies about the solvency of Fannie and Freddie. Good riddance to one of the most arrogant Congressman ever. To wit:
Frank served 16 terms in Congress. Yep…he was there for 31 long years. He’s the epitome of a Fat Cat and the quintessential career politician. Go away now. Barney Frank to Retire From Congress – Common American Journal
But it’s not all good news. Frank Out, Waters In? FHA Capital Reserves Questioned Again; Massachusetts Title Questions “Waters is in line for Frank’s spot and could become chairwoman of the panel if Democrats retake the House. The California liberal is seen as to the left of Frank.” One quote read, “Waters at times is very hostile to the banks so this is a situation worth watching.” Lovely.
And just so you have the facts on where Barney Frank stood on Fannie & Freddie:
Shameless plug. The November issue of Smart Girl Nation is out. It’s a MUST read!!! 😉 Smart Girl Nation
Putting your money where your mouth is. Company Won’t Hire ‘Until Obama is Gone’ | Godfather Politics “The owner says that it’s nothing personal. It’s not attack on the President but on his policies. Bill Looman explained that he can’t afford to hire right now. “I’ve got people that I want to hire now, but I just can’t afford it. And I don’t foresee that I’ll be able to afford it unless some things change in D.C.”
ICYMI (and I’m sure you did – no one reported this!) Obama friend and fundraiser sentenced to 10 years imprisonment – National Law Enforcement “Of interesting (but not surprising) note is that the mainstream media coverage of Rezko’s sentence this afternoon fails to mention his close ties to the president. A number of headlines describe Rezko as a Blagojevich political fundraiser and adviser, but conspicuously absent is any mention of Obama.”

Final Thought: “Now, most of the time I’m going to agree with the Democrats and disagree with the Republicans.” Barney Frank (Most of the time??? How about all the time?)
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
