McCain and the GOP leadership earlier today blamed anyone and everyone (but themselves) for the failure of the bailout bill, singling out Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi for their wicked, wicked ways:
Well, Banking Committee Chairman Rep. Barney Frank was having none of it:
“Just before the vote, when the outcome was still in doubt, Speaker Pelosi gave a strongly worded partisan speech and poisoned the outcome.
This bill failed because Barack Obama and the Democrats put politics ahead of country.”
A good jab from the video above:
Here's the story. There's a terrible crisis affecting the American economy. We have come together on a bill to alleviate the crisis. And because somebody hurt their feelings, they decide to punish the country... I'll make you an offer. Give me those twelve peoples' names and I will go talk uncharacteristically nicely to them and tell them what wonderful people they are and maybe they'll now think about their country.
