"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." QUOTE: 2003 Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) Chairman of the Financial Services Committee
Thanks from TNVolunteer73 and NowhereMan

I believe he said this while he was sleeping with the CEO of Fannie Mae (Herb Moses, fellow tribe member) and was serving on the House Banking Committee.
He was the speaker at my High School graduation many, many years ago and he sounded exactly like Elmer Fudd.

Quote:
In 1989, the Washington Times reported that Frank allowed his lover at the time, male prostitute Steve Gobie, to live in the basement of his Capitol Hill townhouse, where the hooker turned tricks while the openly gay congressman was at work. The sordid living arrangement led to an official reprimand of Frank by the House of Representatives for using his congressional office to fix parking tickets racked up by the prostitute.
I have no doubt there is a special place reserved for Frank in Hell for his earthly sins.

Why not talk about the lies conservatives tell?
Because a conservative defends conservatives and liberals defend liberals. Liberal lies were listed and of course there was an attempt to list a conservative lie by referencing WMDs in Iraq, however, that is a non-starter because that would mean calling Bill Clinton, Al Gore and other liberals a liar as well.

We don't need to expose conservative lies, that is the job of liberals on this page. What is the matter too lazy and need someone else to do the work for you??

Actually the dictionary defines goose stepping as to practice an unthinking conformity.

You are the one that assumed you were being called a Nazi, only showing your own lack of knowledge!!!!

Could it be possible that there wasn't a financial crisis in 2003 when this statement was made?
Most of the bad mortgages were written in 2005 and 2006...
And the pressure to write bad mortgages was the profit motive, the demand for mortgages went wild in 2005, mortgages were the stuff mortgage derivatives were made from....

What's to defend?
You listed a bunch of nonsense that Conservatives claim Liberals say....
The OP is actually a LIE you were told by Conservatives....
Did they also say the check was in the mail?
Did they also say they wouldn't come in your mouth?

The only thing secure about it...is the Hispanic vote spinoff for Democrats. Why fix the border?

People can spin it however they want...but that's the reason.

It's as secure as it can be with the money allocated by congress for border security....
Are you claiming that Obama isn't spending the money congress allocated for Border Security on border security?
