Liberal Rep Barney Frank (D-MA) To Rep Eric Cantor (D): Stop Politicizing Bin Laden Death

(Real Clear Politics) - Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) says House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is politicizing the death of Osama bin Laden by thanking President Bush, as well as President Obama.

"If Bush had gotten Osama after Clinton had failed do you think Cantor would have given Clinton credit and said: 'Oh good. Bush got Osama bin Laden, he showed the same vigilance as Bill Clinton?'" Frank said.
