Glenn Bleck’s news website The Blaze is featuring video from Thursday of Barney Frank taking shots on MSNBC at Republican Presidential Candidate and former Speaker of the House of Representatives newt Gingrich.
According to the video-containing article by Becket Adams, titled: “Gingrich in the Spotlight, Barney Frank Takes Aim”:
Because Gingrich appears to be what many have referred to as the GOP “flavor of the week,” with ABC News writing “If August belonged to Bachmann, then September was Perry’s, October Cain’s, and now November is Gingrich’s moment in the sun,” he will therefore have all of the media’s attention turned on him.
And this seems to be the standard operating procedure.
However, Adams also adds, later in the article:
However, there is another reason why Frank might be interested in going after Gingrich: ”Payback.”
Recall what the Former Speaker said about both Frank and Sen. Chris Dodd regarding their involvement in the financial crisis …
Among comments to the story on The Blaze were the following:
“Shasta”: “Frank had a gay sex ring running out of his house and he talks about Gingrich multiple marriage?”
“Okie from Muskogee”: “Who was speaker while Clinton revamped the Community Reinvestment Cct all through the mid-1990′s? NEWT….. The Community Reinvestment Act helped push banks to loan to those who could not afford it….you know, the bubble that just busted…..”
“lylejk”: “Since all politicians have had their hands in someone’s cookie jar, I see no surprise that Newt had his in Freddie Mac’s. That’s not the reason I will never support Newt and may not be abO if Newt gets the nod. His role in passing both NAFTA and GATT can not be ignored.”
“freedommonger”: “When Barney Frank is speaking about a man and ‘flavor of the month’ comes up, it means a whole different thing than how we might mean it.”
“barber2:” “CLANG ; BUT Saul Alinsky taught the community organizers this rule: hold your opponents to the their own high standards. That is why the Left, which forgives anything their own do, likes to pillory conservatives because they know that that will ‘get to’ the conservatives. The Left hates the fact that the conservatives go to church and have standards, so the Left loves to crucify any conservative who ‘falls short’ on the moral scale. The Left – well, they don’t give a — about standards and falling short…for a fellow Lefty! Great tactic for the Left: they can forgive/dismiss their Barney Frank while pillorying a Newt …..”
