Barney Frank: Housing Bubble Nostradamus
When I saw Glenn Reynolds‘ snarky post, “BARNEY FRANK IN 2005: Bubble? What bubble?” my instinct was a snarky rejoinder about what a stupid SOB Frank was with a link to my own archives, subtly alluding to the fact that a lot of us got that one wrong.
The link, though, goes to an Ed Morrissey post noting that Frank is now taking credit for having warned about this all along when it turns out “Frank has long been one of the loudest voices supporting the CRA and Fannie/Freddie policies that encouraged irresponsible lending.”
Okay, now that’s funny.
