Barney Frank should be out front for Democrats


It’s refreshing to see a Democrat with some, ahem, chutzpah, finally standing up to the unruly mob.  Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and well, just about every spineless Democrat (there are many) should take notes from Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA). 

At a town hall meeting in Dartmouth, Franks admonishes a woman brandishing a picture of President Obama looking like Adolf Hitler. He handles the crowd well, and he’s honest discussing the issue of health care reform.

My favorite line is, “I disagree with you that it’s socialism to help people who, through no fault of their own, have lost their jobs” because that’s what this is all about.  Take note Democratic leadership, who, in rushing to ram this through legislation have never been able to convince the people this is not only a good idea but what that idea is. 

Please just step aside and let Barney Frank control the spin.
