Barney Frank Surfaces Picking His Nose and Pronouncing US Default as Possible

Posted on July 14, 2011

According to Truth is Contagious,

Barney Frank, fresh from being caught on live TV picking his nose during Bernanke’s Humphrey Hawkins presentation, had a decidedly more sour outlook on the prospects for the debt ceiling. Spoiler alert: in tried and true fashion, the drama king blamed it all on the stupidity and inexperience of republicans. Asked when there is a chance the US will be put into default: “Yes. I take the freshmen republicans and people like Michelle Bachmann at their word. I don’t think they’re kidding. I think they fundamentally misread this situation as Bernanke, a Bush appointee after all, made clear today. I think there are people that frankly have an unreal view of the world. They believe that this is somehow a fake and that you can push a button and make a lot of these debts go away. 


 Frank on the debt negotiations and whether there’s a chance the United States will be put into default:

“I think there is a very real chance that the unrealistic view of many of these new right- wing Republicans and those who are intimidated by them could vote no.”

At this writing, it looks as if Obama and Cantor will destroy the peace never mind the country far in advance of it going into default.
