aka, The Obama Conundrum

“The problem in politics is this: You don’t get any credit for disaster averted.  Going to the voters and saying, ‘Boy, things really suck, but you know what?  If it wasn’t for me, they would suck worse.’  That is not a platform on which anybody has ever gotten elected in the history of the world.” – Barney Frank, quoted in Andrew Ross Sorkin, Too Big to Fail

  1. I adore that big goofy Barney Frank. One of the few politicians who will say what he thinks.

    • one gutsy guy. too bad he retired. but he couldn’t serve forever.

  2. On the upside, he’ll be even more outspoken now that he doesn’t have to worry about his job.
