Barney Frank tells the truth...or does he?

First we had Joe Biden tell us that Hussein is so weak and inexperienced that, if elected, the country would be attacked in six months.

I thought I would never again see such honesty.

I was wrong.

Listen to Barney admit that he will recommend tax increases.

Now Barney says it will only be on the rich.

He just doesn't tell us who is rich!!

Barney Frank's excuses for his bad judgment

First listen to Barney and Bill.

O'Reilly kicks Frank's butt.

Then read this.

And before you say, "About time Bush did something," that was 9/11/2003.

Well, the Demos shot it down.

''These two entities -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- are not facing any kind of financial crisis,'' said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services Committee. ''The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.''

Representative Melvin L. Watt, Democrat of North Carolina, agreed.

''I don't see much other than a shell game going on here, moving something from one agency to another and in the process weakening the bargaining power of poorer families and their ability to get affordable housing,'' Mr. Watt said.



Barney would not know the truth if he met it walking down the street.

Find the copperhead

It's that time of year when we will be raking leaves, hunting and just goofing around the yard and fields.

Look before you stick your hand in leaves. Wear boots for hunting. Stir leaves with a long pole before raking. They make no noise and they will bite.

I know Obama is not a Muslim

Really, I do. He's not. No way. Nada.

Barack Obama's newly appointed Muslim outreach adviser is coming under fire for meeting with Islamic groups with extremist views, just two months after her predecessor resigned over links to a radical cleric.

Minha Husaini met with members of several Islamic organizations in Virginia on September 15 -- including some that terrorism experts say have ties to Hamas and the radical Muslim Brotherhood.

Among the attendees were senior members of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which was listed by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror-related trial.

Several people connected to CAIR have been convicted of felonies -- including on terrorism-related charges.

CAIR bills itself as the nation's largest Muslim civil-rights advocacy group. As recently as last year, it advised the Transportation Security Administration on sensitivity training regarding Muslim air travelers. Nihad Awad, a CAIR co-founder and executive director, met with President Bush in the aftermath of 9/11.

But critics say CAIR has a long history of masquerading as a moderate Islamic group.

"These groups, even if they themselves are not active terrorist organizations, do subscribe to large amounts of the ideology that fuels the terrorism that we are being confronted with," said Andrew McCarthy, former Assistant U.S. Attorney.

CAIR did not return repeated calls for comment.

Awad, who was at the September meeting with Husaini, recently attended a dinner with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

I mean why shouldn't his people associate with these people? I mean, Ayers admits to being a terrorist and Hussein's paling with him is no problem. So what's the problem with having dinner with a country's leader? I mean so the leader wants to destroy Israel and the West. Big deal.

And CAIR? Look chums, John Murtha has been an unindicted co-conspirator for years and years. Most Democrats think of that as resume enhancement.

Also present at the Sept. 15 meeting was Mahdi Bray, who has publicly announced his support for the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah. Bray, the executive director of the Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation, raised his fist in the air during a rally in Washington in October 2000 to demonstrate his support for the terror groups.

Oh, that? Look, just because Hamas is sending suicide bombers into Israel who are killing innocent women and children and Hezbollah has rained missiles on Israel and control Lebannon... well, that's no reason not to support them if you are Muslim. Right? If those darn Jews would just leave everything would be fine...

Of course we know Hussein is not a Muslim. He has told us he isn't.

That settles it, right?
