GirliemEn of the Week - Chris Dodd & Barney Frank
From Politically Incorrect Gazette --
Girliemen of the Week
Date Awarded: October 03, 2008
Girliemen: Chris Dodd, Barney Frank
Antics: Craven Cowardice
The most stunning thing about the ongoing financial meltdown is the fact that two Elected Tormentors, who are leading the Legicrat stampede to ‘fix’ it, are the very ones whose antics got us here in the first place. I refer, of course, to Congressman Barney Frank, chairman of the House financial services committee, and Senator Chris Dodd, chairman of the Senate Banking, housing and urban affairs committee. Both of them helped draft this capitalism-eviscerating legislative abortion. They played a key role in a bill whose primary purpose was to distract we the people from the fact that, the primary financial dominos - Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac - whose collapse helped the financial meltdown reach critical mass, are pet projects of theirs.
When some Elephant Clan hacks - including Vicente W. Bush - first detected trouble in ‘affordable housing’ for deadbeats paradise, 5 years ago, Frank led the counterattack to keep these generous campaign donors out of the regulatory bull’s-eye.
"These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis. The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing." (Barney Frank, holding up his end of a $42,000 Fannie and Freddie campaign donation, quid pro quo bargain)
In 2007, when this financial house of cards was already starting to collapse, Chris Dodd turned on his deep pocketed ($165,000 in Fannie and Freddie campaign donations) ‘friends’, beating Barney Frank out of the finger-pointing starting gate, with this putrid pontificating:
"The fact that any reputable banker or lender would make these kinds of loans so widely available to wage-earners, to elderly families on fixed incomes, or to lower-income, unsophisticated borrowers, strikes me as unconscionable and deceptive."
You lying weasels! Until this subprime mortgage turd started to stink, you were insufferably superior and smug about ‘providing affordable housing to unqualified buyers’. Now, when this rancid butt bullet is floating in YOUR toilet bowl, you’re seeking a life preserver to keep from going down with it.
Both men were bought and paid for by ‘finance, insurance and real estate interests’ - Barney cost them $2.5 million over the years, making him a bargain, compared to the pricier ($13 million) Dodd. When, like Humpty Dumpty, Freddie and Fannie came tumbling down, both of them went furtive and girlie, in their quest for career saving political cover. They were ready, willing, and eager to send their friends to retribution’s chopping block, as long as they, themselves, avoided that richly deserved fate.
By now, you’re thinking this sounds more like a steaming load, and I tend to agree. Despite that, I am pinning a Girlieman label (it fits Barney much better, for OBVIOUS reasons) on them because they have been gutless, bought and paid for, wonders throughout this debacle. Steaming Load is TOO GOOD for a pair of miserable, money-grubbing, neo-Marxist sons-of-bitches who abuse their positions of authority and use their leadership positions to blame everyone else. If either of them had a clue about manhood, REAL MANHOOD, they would shoulder their part of the blame and admit their critical roles in this fiasco.
Would it kill them to say, "Oops, my bad"? Would it kill them to say, "I got this one wrong, and I apologize to the American people for violating their trust"? Obviously, which explains why these bribe-taking, favor giving, lying, Elected Tormentor bastards are the Politically Incorrect Gazette’s Girliemen of the Week.
