2006 Barney Frank Video Is Stunning

The video of a speech given by Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass, has recently surfaced. Three weeks after making this speech, Frank became Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.

His comments are stunning. Keep in mind that it is this man who was driving when the country ran off the road into the present financial crises.

As Chairman, he oversees, among other things, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

I doubt that any of us need a reminder as to why we need new leadership in our country---but just in case anyone has had a memory lapse, check this out.

Some notable quotes from the three minute video.

"One of the things we did was try to reduce the reporting requirements from the banks to the financial detectives. Far too much has been reported now, in my judgment."

On the plan to manage Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae funds: "distribute it more fairly."

On plummeting house prices: "I think its a good thing..."

On why it's a good thing: "Fundamentally I don't think that there's a crises..."

America's vote put far left progressives in office, allowing this man and others like him to be elevated to positions of power over the well being of our country.

His quote of the decade? "I'm pretty good with words but I'm not so good with things. I've had a lifelong struggle with things."

What can I say? Except, maybe, just in case you have had a memory lapse as to how we got to where we are, please take three minutes and look at this video.

It will inform you and hopefully inspire you to repeat the famous words---"Never Again".

Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Active. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.
