Bartiromo doesn’t let Fwank spew his nonsense unchallenged, which is a refreshing change.

Flopsweat in a suit and tie? I think that he should be in an orange jumpsuit which would be far more comfortable for him.
Yeah, the Tea Party is responsible for causing a trillion in interest payments for not figuring out how to pay for LIBERAL entitlements.
Barney always takes a position that doesn’t require a shred of proof. He’s another narcissist who attempts to hide his own incompetence under layers of complexity…..unnecessary complexity.
The guy doesn’t have any expertise in any field. He’s never held a private sector job. He’s kept his position of power by verbally bullying anyone who questions him.
I will repeat, BARNEY FRANS HAS NEVER HAD A JOB IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR. How in the world did he get into a position of being able to make rules for financial industry?
barney is impossible to listen to.I made it half way and couldn’t go on.His clueless mind, and his stamering and spitting are gross! He played a very large part in the realestate crash in America.Contrary to what he say’s America is not recovering!
Reinstate Glass/Segal,and fuck the voulker rules! barneys a bought and paid for globalist whore!
Two thumb’s up for the “money honey”!
Fucking frank,typical RAT,attack the messenger and not answer the question.How do these clowns stay aroung soooooolong?
@Gastorgrab….how do any of these idiots that have never held a private sector job into the position of power? Idiots vote them in, and there is always the money trail. And they always bully or filibuster when in the hot seat. It’s scary the power they have.
That was quite entertaining to watch. At first it was like no way I will get through 12 minutes of Bawney, but then she did her job. Very nice.
She allowed him to way too much time, and she should of been more direct, Barney was squirming in his seat, which could of been directly related to just getting back from his HONEYmoon with his BOYTOY, she should of nailed him right between the eyes……………………………..but of course we know that his SEAT in the house isn’t the only thing that he gave up!!!!
Bawney is partially responsible for the economic downturn that we are now experiencing. So, the idiots in Congress gave him and Dodd (who is also responsible) the task of correcting the problem. ?
Isn’t that kinda’ like giving a ship builder whose ships have all sunk, the task of designing a sink-proof ship?
Bawney knows less about the financial market than my son does…..
Shouldn’t he be barefoot and pregnant? I thought he got married and was a house wife now…
She barely even uttered a word at that one point in the video and he’s claiming that she was mocking him? What a drama queen he is.
Barney kick up dust every time someone gets close to calling him out on his bullshit. I guess that’s why he’s so obnoxious to everyone, all the time. Like most liberals, his arguments are based on liberal conjecture instead of on established facts. His ‘facts’ are only facts to other liberals.
They are in fact just the liberal talking points that have been talked about for the last twenty years and are not only unproven, they are unprovable. The ‘other team’ is always responsible for the failure of the left’s ideas. You would think their plans would consider that some of their peers might oppose their plans.
It’s like showing up for a football game and then complaining that “there is another team on the field”, and they keep preventing you from scoring. THAT IS THE NATURE OF THIS GAME, BARNEY! There has been an ‘opposition interest’ in government for 200 years. Politicians in the past have succeeded by effectively dealing with opposition to their plans. The fact that people don’t agree with your legislation, and actively work to defeat it, is not a new proposition.
I’ve never heard a professional sports franchise complain that “we would have scored a hundred goals if it hadn’t been for that other team on the field”. This is what the term “obstructionist” says to me.
When Barney Franks get backed into a corner like this and again with Bill O’Reilly did with him, Barney starts his whining routine and complaining so he doesn’t have to answer the questions. This is your typical libtard at his finest!
gotta give orly props, he called out this walkng enema bag out and didnt let him filibuster…it was a thing of beauty.
That buffoon was just jealous of her fabulous Van Cleef & Arpel necklace. The Money Honey went way too easy on him.
She’s such a class act. A pleasure to watch her.
I am by nature not a violent person, but I would enjoy beating the living shit out of this flaming futon.
I hate all of them. That is what f’king Glass-Steagell did before they repealed those sections back in 1999, it separated commercial banking from investment banking. All their hands are dirty, Rs and Ds alike. Crony capitalist f’king asshole douchebags banksters.
On a side note, speaking of crony capitalists, zerohedge carried a good piece a couple days ago by William K. Black, titled, “Reinventing Crony Capitalism: the Context of Geithner’s Obscene Rant against Barofsky.” Scroll down past the infographs for the article. As it says, it “is heavy reading, but packed full of great analysis and experience.” You will not be sorry you read it.
Another good piece from today: “Barofsky On Geithner: “We Should See People In Handcuffs”"
“While Geithner pushed for broader reforms of LIBOR, he did not explicitly warn of possible rate manipulations and neglected to notify U.S. regulators at the Department of Justice, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and Securities and Exchange Commission to the wrongdoing, notes Barofsky.
It was a “message to the banks ‘if we commit fraud, we break the rules, don’t worry, we’re too big — they’ll never bring the appropriate steps against us,’” Barofsky says in an interview with The Daily Ticker. “And that is why we’ve had scandal after scandal after scandal.”
This was a “global conspiracy to fix one of the most important interest rates in the world,” Barofsky continues. “[Geithner] heard this information and looked the other way. Geithner and other regulators should be held accountable, they should be fired across the board. If they knew about an ongoing fraud, and they didn’t do anything about it, they don’t deserve to have their jobs. I hope we see people in handcuffs.”"

How can anyone believe anything out Franks’ mouth? He said Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were in good financial shape right before the housing collaspe. He was responsible zero down no job mortgage loans.
I’d pay money to see a video of him and Stuart Varney or Lou Dobbs.
who’s the bitch there barney boy?
“If you want to have a serious conversation, let’s have it’
Oh pop your homosexual head back down and quit picking on wimmen, ass.
You are one of the main people behind the financial meltdown of 2008, with your pushing the CRA. You should be ashamed and certainly not re-elected. Boy you must really have a critical mass of idiots up there.
I couldn’t finish, either. After 2-3 minutes, went into overload. I still don’t fookin know what pwopwietawy twading is.
I could only watch that SOB for just so long. He is completely wrong, other, anti-normal. Gets me disgusted.
Maria deserves a lot of credit for putting up with that louse and his misogyny. She is so wonderful.
I would have watched it just to see her, but he is so utterly disgusting that it could not be.
Barney Frank is the most disgustingly rude member to ever hold office. You trolls in MA that elected this maggot are sick. He thinks he is above reproach –further, he has utter contempt for women.
Since he likes it in the can so much I think he would love GITMO—git mo in da ya know what.
He’s a disgusting, cry-baby who pouts every time you call him on his crap filled statements.
She on the other hand is lovely, and the grown-up of the two.
Quite the contrast.
we’ve all heard of mf global,well guitner,benanke,dodd,frank, and others,have put the american-tax-payer in the same position,as the investors at mf global, corzines out bundling money for o’bama’s campaign,he’s old news now.
if the economy hear or abroad goes bad tax-payers will be on the hook for 10′s of trillions of dollars,if if it goes horrible,it will be 100′s of trillion dollars,and just like corzine,the big bankers,will get out of their chair and leave the office,and disapear,and your great,great,great,great grand children will pay this off.
did you ever wonder where all these trillions of dollars that was printed went to,well the big banks got it and it’s highly leveraged in derivatives all over the world.
Frank is a economic/financial moron. Worst than Obama, who just wants to take the money and hang them from poles.
Barny Frank. His age is 124% of his IQ.
Amazing–an intelligent, articulate, attractive woman with some honesty and common sense appearing on CNBC.
I’m talking about the woman to the left, not the one on the right.
The mental picture generated by the use of the words Barney Frank and spewing in the same sentence is causing my mind to shut down. I will most likely suffer from tremors for weeks. In the future please be more considerate of those of us with vivid imaginations. Thank You
Barney Franks admits to getting lover a job a Fannie Mae.
Rep. Barney Frank says there was no conflict of interest in him helping his former lover secure a job with Fannie Mae 20 years ago while he was on the committee charged with overseeing the lending giant.
“It is a common thing in Washington for members of Congress to have spouses work for the federal government,” Frank told the Boston Herald Wednesday night. “There is no rule against it at all.”
Frank explained to the newspaper that he helped his ex-companion, Herb Moses, get a job at Fannie Mae in 1991 when one of its executives approached him about Moses, who had graduated with a master’s degree in business administration from Dartmouth College and had applied for a job at the mortgage company.
Frank, who was a junior member of the House Financial Services Committee at the time, said he told the executive that he thought Moses would be “great” for the “entry-level position.”
When asked if he should have revealed his efforts to help Moses, Frank told the newspaper, “It was widely known. It was out there in the public. It’s nonsense.”
But Republicans have a different view.
“Just when you think you’ve heard the worst, Democrats in Massachusetts take shameless politics to a new low,” said Tory Mazzola, spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee. “The fact that Barney Frank didn’t see this as a conflict of interest is alarming by itself, but it’s so deceitful that it really shows voters that he’s not looking out for them in Washington.”

Ummm–and we wonder what is WRONG with this government? Fannie Mae is the root cause of our current economic collapse–with our Federal Government co-signing our names to 50% of the mortgages in this country. And while in September 1999–lowering lending requirements. No collateral–no down payment–and less than a desirable credit rating could still buy you a 200-300K home. Why? Because they had 310 million American co-signers
I went to an executive MBA program that required 10 years of industry experience among other things in order to get into the program – yet this asshole, who has never held a job other than politics has tremendous influence over economic decisions FOR THE COUNTRY.
There ought to be more requirements to get into Congress, for sure………..and term limits.
