Barney Frank: Cut Money For Afghan Schools, Hospitals, Roads


When Did Dems Give Up On Rebuilding Afghanistan?

After years of pushing the idea that a lack of Western aid had encouraged terrorism in Afghanistan, Democrats have sneakily turned 180 degrees in the other direction, now attacking Republicans for supporting efforts to build roads, schools and hospitals.

According to Barney Frank, who has suddenly reinvented himself as a budget hawk, that $1.5b in spending should be sent home, where it can happily join trillions Obamists have already wasted on cronies in government, unions and banking.

Is there a union boss waiting for a phone call from Barney so he can begin a "shovel-ready" project ?

We've heard Dems rail against our military presence there, but now they're fighting the country's reconstruction as well?

We certainly haven't forgotten Senator Patty Murray's (D-WA) now-infamous lecture to schoolchildren on how terrorists such as bin Laden had been "out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day care facilities, building health care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. We haven't done that."

Apparently, because there's corruption in the country (is that a NEW problem there?) we should give up on Afghan schoolchildren.

From yesterday's Ed Schultz Show (guest host filling-in):

And we'd been led to believe Republicans were against helping others, thanks for setting that straight, Barney!
