    Wins by Barney Frank and in the CT Senate race. How anyone could vote for either of these guys is beyond me

    The CO. senate farce. And maybe a repetition in Alaska.

    However, blessings should be counted one by one.

    A switch back to Sanity in the house. A divided senate. 0bama didn't campaign much, and those he did campaign for lost. He is now the kiss of death.


    Grayson is gone. That in itself is a step forward.

    Yes to those idiots Grayson and Green. And I understand it will be to Obama's detriment IF Conservatives do not take the Senate. He will have no one to blame all things on in `12?

    I believe there has been more alarm raised about potential unsafty and unsoundness [of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac] than, in fact, exists."- Barney Frank... 9/25/2003

    The more people, in my judgment, exaggerate a threat of safety and soundness, the more people conjure up the possibility of serious financial losses to the Treasury, which I do NOT see. Barney Frank---9/11/ 2003

    I want to roll the dice a little bit more in this situation towards subsidized housing."--Barney Frank---9/25/2005

    "These two entities--Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac---are not facing any kind of financial crisis." Barney Frank -- 9/11/2003

    "Fannie and Freddie are fundamentally sound, they are not in danger of going under----I do think their prospects of going forward are very solid." -- Barney Frank-- 7/14/2008

    I don't think that reality has any effect on his criticism of us.

    I think that they have everything invested in him, and can't back away.
