From tonight's debate about the economy, Newt Gringrich proves why he is the most entertaining person in politics and too intemperate to be president:
"If you want to throw people in jail, start with Barney Frank and Chris Dodd."
...and move quickly to Andrew Cuomo, Bill Clinton and George Bush.
By the way, for a laugh-out-loud blog of the debate, checkout Stephen Green.
What a squish you are. Newt's comment was not intemperate. The media's sucking up to the radical liberals needs to be called out. The perversion of our economy by Barney and Dodd needs to be called out. Heaven forbid any strong words be used against the saints on the left.
The New York Times has some good business reporters, including Louise Story and Gretchen Morgenstern. Gretchen wrote *Reckless Endangerment", a scathing expose of the connections between those in government, the GSEs, mortgage originators like Countrywide and Wall Street. Barney "Roll the Dice" Frank figures prominently. Chris "Friend of Angelo" Dodd somewhat.
Years from now people will wonder how these two got to stay in office, let alone be the points to enact "Dodd Frank".
