Rep. Barney Frank says GOP is hoping bad economy will weigh down President Obama in 2012.
Republicans "hate" signs of any economic recovery because they're hoping a weak economy weighs down President Obama politically in 2012, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) said Wednesday night.
Frank, the ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee, said that the GOP was "frantic" about signs of an economic recovery, because they could strengthen Obama's political standing going into his 2012 reelection.
"You know, for the last year, every month, we've seen more private-sector jobs," Frank said Wednesday evening on MSNBC. "And, by the way, that's one of the things the Republicans are frantic about.
And the rhetoric continues from one tired, old, politician who himself was in part to blame for the recent recession. Politicians like Mr. Frank, in office for way too many years, should have been replaced years ago
because they do not get it and are so out of touch with the voters. He bad mouths the Tea Party with no embarrassment and calls the Republicans the hate mongers. Maybe Massachusetts is blind to his politics but not the rest of the country. And as far as jobs go, maybe he spoke too soon about job creation. The jobs that most people have now are low paying jobs like flipping burgers or getting a coffee order wrong. I am one who hopes that Obama does not get elected because HE is the one who is playing the rich vs the poor and the white vs the black.
Now I must get back to work so I can make more money for the government to take from me...........
I'm the crazy one, I should quit my job, close the company, and collect unemployment for the rest of my days.
