Ok, OK … I have had enough. Here it is! Plus, Joel Pollack’s interview with Gretta Van Susteren last night. As I said two days ago, what is so admirable about this is the way, despite the ridicule from a sitting US Congressman, who by the way works for Mr Pollack, he continued to ask his question waiting for an answer, which never came.
Just to set this up. Congressman Frank speaks to his constituents at Harvard two days ago addressing the financial meltdown. According to Pollack, a Harvard Law student, Frank blamed everyone but mostly Republicans for the housing, credit, financial crisis. So Pollack asks him a simple question. “Do you accept any responsibility for the crisis?” Barney makes a fool of himself. Pollack shows courage because the crowd clearly is with the Congressman
Here is a portion of the interview Gretta did with Mr Pollack last night. As Pollack says, after listening to Frank bash the Republicans, he just wondered if the Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee might bear some responsibility.
I thought the kid was pretty good. Barney knocked him off target early on but hey, this ain’t a debating match. The Congressman had an obligation to answer the question. BTW, Pollack says, when he came to Harvard, he was a Democrat. Hmmmmm. Another convert.
