The Difference Between Ron Paul as Monetary Policy Chairman and Barney Frank

Congressman Paul was hard at work in Washington D.C., this week, while the former chairman of the House subcommittee on Monetary Policy, Barney Frank, was hobnobbing it in Davos with the power elite.

And while Ron Paul seems very concerned about future inflation, Barney Frank became irritated when reporters at the plotters' pow wow wanted to discuss the topic.

Reports WSJ:
Mr. Frank was dressed something like a rock star himself, wearing a paisley tie that was wrapped almost completely around the outside of his collar. He had just emerged from a meeting of the world’s leading economic officials, including European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet. Reporters asked him whether Mr. Trichet had expressed worries about inflation. No, he said.

They asked again; that began to annoy Mr. Frank.

“I am terribly sorry. Look, I understand not giving bad news to journalists is like not giving candy to children. But I apologize I have no bad news to give you.”

One reporter would not be dissuaded: There was no discussion of inflation?
“That’s the third time you’ve asked me, and you would obviously like me to say there was inflation, and I can’t make it up!”


  1. People voted for this wiener. This guy makes me puke my dinner up. We are so sick of politicians like this. WAAH, (What an Arse Hole)

  2. Barney Frank is a little psychopath who thinks he owns other people's earnings...A bratty little mugger and the people who vote for him are nothing but terrorists.
