Barney Frank Loses It on Sunday Show

On this weekend’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” outgoing Democratic Rep. Barney Frank locked horns with Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who wanted to focus on economic issues instead of gay marriage.

Frank, an openly gay member of Congress, claimed that Blackburn was relying too heavily on talking points.

“I do know — George, I have to say and I — you know, this is a good political science lesson for people about what a political party’s talking points are,” Frank said. “My colleague, Ms. Blackburn, has been instructed to talk about the economics first. And, while I would prefer to answer your questions, I do have to note that this Republican talking point, that women have lost jobs — the job losses came about because of the terrible recession … brought about under George Bush.”
