Obama and Barney Frank forced the banks to make all those bad loans to those stupid ass knuckleheads that could NEVER pay it back. Don't blame the banks. They had their hands tied by big government.

Unqualified homebuyers were not the only ones who benefitted from Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank’s efforts to deregulate Fannie Mae throughout the 1990s.

So did Herb Moses, Fannie Mae’s executive at the forefront of the agency’s push to relax lending restrictions. Shortly after Frank came out of the closet, Frank met and began dating Herb Moses, an economist and LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) activist; their relationship lasted for eleven years until an amicable break-up in July 1998. Moses, who was an executive at Fannie Mae from 1991 to 1998, was the first partner of an openly gay member of Congress to receive spousal benefits and the two were considered "Washington's most powerful and influential gay couple."

Both Frank and Moses assured the Wall Street Journal in 1992 that they took pains to avoid any conflicts of interest. Critics, however, remain skeptical and rightfully so.

Many have raised new questions about Frank’s relationship with Herb Moses, who was Fannie’s assistant director for product initiatives while Frank was on the House Banking Committee, which had jurisdiction over Fannie.

Barney has recently seen the light though proclaiming on 8/17/2010:

“Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac should be abolished rather than reformed as part of the Obama administration's planned overhaul of the government's role in housing finance”.

No surprise Barney Frank would be fond of any agency named 'fannie.'
