Barney Frank's Mob Violence
Barney Frank's Mob Violence
By John Ransom
It’s about time that someone stood up with a bludgeon and beat back against Obama progressives who are pushing the rest of us around because they can’t think of anything better to do.
Um, you know, since it's been shown they have no plan to save the country and never really had one to begin with.
Thank you Senate Republicans for fighting back.
In an op-ed in the Washington Post, Democrat deviant Barney Frank, who has committed the worst kind violence on America through his flawed view of himself and the place he occupies in the world, railed against Senate Republicans “for refusing to consider President Barack Obama’s nominees to federal agencies” writes Politico, unless the Democrats start to trim back legislation that’s hurting the rest of the country.
The prime GOP demand is that Congress gut Frank’s perverted bank-reform bill known as Dodd-Frank.
Dodd-Frank can be called a lot of things, but it’s the furthest away from bank-reform that legislation can get. Dodd-Frank will accomplish a lot of things too, but few of them will be good for America.
“Dodd-Frank has failed to please anybody, however, partly on account of the arbitrary distinctions it draws between those activities that are proper to banking and those that are not, and partly because it is already seen to be failing as a means of preventing the revival of market practices that led to the 2007-08 crisis," said Stephen Lewis, the chief economist at Monument Securities in London in a research note according to CNBC via Yahoo Finance.
"I think we have seen this movie before" said Ted Price, from Canada's Office of the Financial Institutions according to the same article. "But the amazing thing is we continue to expect a different ending."
In the op-ed, Barney equates the principled Republican opposition to the disaster that is Dodd-Frank to a “mugging” and generally uses other rhetoric denoting violence.
So much for the civility lesson.
“While they are entitled to that opinion,” wrote Frank, “Senate Republicans are not entitled to use the confirmation power as a bludgeon to get their way when they cannot do so through the normal legislative process.”
No, not quite.
The conservative loyal opposition have shown that they are willing to do anything within the law to delay, to obstruct and otherwise stop an administration that cares nothing about executing the law. Obama and his cronies, like Barney Frank, care only about what they can get away with.
The truth is that Republicans haven’t gone half far enough in their opposition to an administration that shows itself not only leaderless, but rudderless as well. That’s because, put simply, the Democrats have shown themselves to be wholly unfit for power.
They can’t even live up to the precepts that they say they represent.
The spent the winter lecturing the rest of us about civility, after the Giffords shooting, when they should have been preparing a budget.
Since then their rhetoric has grown increasingly shrill, increasingly threatening, increasingly mean-spirited, hate-filled and violent.
Well there is only one way to deal with bullies like that.
It’s with a legal, rhetorical and electoral bludgeon.
Wield it Republicans. The country will back you.
