While this book has this on the front cover to sell what is otherwise an unreadable 600 pages of nothing but quotes, it exemplifies exactly how the left tries to move the would be debate from topics of importance to how the right is evil. If you have not noticed this trend, just be aware, it is basically impossible to miss. I want to offer a few examples before moving forward with the post.
Republican's want women to die on the floor: This is a supposed leader
Republican's are racists: Who exactly is racist in the video? The sad part is the failure of the subcommittee to act on the finding of the regulators increased the damage of the financial crisis by 2 fold.
Now what is more troubling, is that Barney Frank, who is in the video stumping for Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac and had a lover at Freddie during the period, is now the head of said subcommittee. It is certainly easy for one to surmise why Chris Dodd & Barney Frank sponsored he housing recovery act. I would assume it is a thinly veil their wrong doings and/or incompetence.
When Newt Gingrich declared that they should be investigated if people were looking for someone to jail during the GOP debates in Hanover New Hampshire on October 11th, Frank came back with the assertion that Gingrich was just embarrassed that he was polling behind Michelle Bachmann.
It is pretty clear to see a pattern which should be troubling to most Americans.
In an attempt to keep these posts to a manageable level, I am going to try to break them into easy to digest and discuss topics. Please comment on your thoughts and please suggest topics for discuss going forward.
