Barney Franks blusters again msnbc; Nina Turner gets word in edgewise

Over and over he's all about how all of the establishment is for Hillary and his message is "who will work for Bernie." Idiot. They all will if they care about their jobs at all. OMG I can't stand Barney "the old blusterer" Frank. Stay retired, Barney.

They returned with video of Hillary and I turned the channel.

2. He really won the argument IMO

It really is about HOW you accomplish the goals, Democrats already agree on WHAT needs to be done.

6. What argument? I heard blustering. BTW, 3x the time - poor Nina!

You watched? O'Donnell: equal time this time for both. Was that equal time? If yes, then I understand your take on who won.

So you believe that because they are all supporting Hillary, they won't work with Bernie? That's what you think? Because basically that what he said and all he said. We will have a democratic President and his own party won't work with him. Really?

No bias for you, huh?

7. Huh?

1. It wasn't equal time, but it never is, her arguments in the time she did use weren't persuasive to me.

2. "So you believe that because they are all supporting Hillary, they won't work with Bernie? " No, that's irrelevant. They can both accomplish likely similar things is what I agree to.

3. "That's what you think? " Nope.

4. "Because basically that what he said and all he said. We will have a democratic President and his own party won't work with him. Really? " Still no and irrelevant.

Anybody who claims no bias is a liar. I claim to like both candidates, because I do. In my humble opinion, Barney made a better case in their mini-debate. You are free to have a different opinion.

9. Persuasive to you? I didn't think it would be.

Doesn't change the fact he blustered much longer and took her time.

2. If it is irrelevant, then what is the point of bringing it up?

4. So on what basis did he "win?" What did he win? "win" - your word. Does confirming your bias for Hillary constitute a "win?"

Actually, I'm not arguing. You took issue with me and said Barney "won." What did he win?

Obviously, Frank has a problem with sharing time and having to be right or O'Donnell wouldn't have had to set the rule (which he broke) of equal time. Frank just blusters, says nothing, only argument was that Congress supports Hillary (so what) and was done. Took all that time to say the same thing. What did you learn from Blustery Barney?

12. Go Bernie


Lawrence apologized to Nina not having an opportunity to respond to Barney--he promised to have her back. IMHO, Nina was awesome--gave his biography, listed Bernie's accomplishments, vision & loved that she talked about Bernie's righteous indignation about what is happening to middle class & poor Americans.

snowy owl--Exactly. Barney kept repeating the same things over & over. Nina more than held her own . Surprised to hear Barney mock Senator Sanders for marching with workers in a picket line.

8. the Financial Services Committee was "The Barney Show"

It's got to be about him.

And btw he let plenty of DLC types get amendments in that limited the consumer financial protection bureau legislation. He's not a serious progressive.

10. I noticed his "self-aggrandizement" a long time ago.

He's all ego.
