Democratic former Congressman Barney Frank of Massachusetts, in an interview with the Huffington Post, slammed President Obama on the rollout of Obamacare - going so far as to accuse the President of blatantly lying to people.

As Zach Carter reported:

"The rollout was so bad, and I was appalled -- I don't understand how the president could have sat there and not been checking on that on a weekly basis," Frank told HuffPost during a July interview. "But frankly, he should never have said as much as he did, that if you like your current health care plan, you can keep it. That wasn't true. And you shouldn't lie to people. And they just lied to people."

"Any smart political adviser would have said, 'Don't lie to people, because you're gonna get caught up in it and it's gonna have this tsunami that you now have,'" Frank told HuffPost. "My political motto, very simple. I have always told the truth, and nothing but the truth. But I don't volunteer the whole truth in every situation."

Barney Frank was consistently one of the most liberal members of the House. He no longer serves and is thus free to criticize President Obama.
