    Alleluia, Brothers!

    LA in MA

    ps. Barney's congressional district included the most liberal sections of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. He probably could not have been elected from anywhere else. While we don't have many registered Republicans, we do have many pro-gun Democrats in the central and western sections of Massachusetts.

    In the house, unlike the senate, if in the minority no real power. I gather he does not think the Dems will regain the house in the next election.

    Bastard deserves the death penalty.

    Destroying a whole economy is quite a feat.

    His district is being redrawn with a majority of blue collar voters; therefore, it is felt his re election would be very difficult.

    Good riddance!

    MSNBC is reporting that Maxine Waters is to be his replacement! Also reporting that the Muslim Brotherhood is prevailing in the elections in Egypt. What a surprise!

    Mrskeet, I would have expected Barney to have a 6 pm press conference.

    Democrats will be in a frenzy to fill the hole left by Frank's withdrawal.....will be hard to find someone with his ability to destroy the future of a country.....

    Better to resign than to fail to get re-elected. I suspect he wants to spend more time with his boy toys.

    Until we get a new US Attorney General he won't be prosecuted. Maybe after we get a new AG he can spend 30 years at club fed, hopefully in the hole. (how appropriate)

    Bad news is now that Blubbering Barney is resigning that babblgram inbred idiot Maxine Waters will head the House Financial Services committee. She can't even balance a checkbook, much less chair the finance committee.

    Look for more people who can't afford houses or cars to get free money to buy both.

    daddioo - Don't panic. The Republicans control the House. Maxine will not be chairman, nor will any Democrat. At least not until 2013.

    The rats are leaving the ship now that they have gnawed holes in it and it is sinking. They know the days of being in power and getting to push the buttons and pull the levers are over. I suspect that like last election you will see a lot of leftists call it a career.

    Gentlemen:

    I don't give a continental d@mn about Frank's sexual preferences. I'm not sure why anyone much cares what floats his boat.

    The quality of his judgement is another matter. Here's an example: Prior to August of 1989 (22 years ago) Congressman Frank's love interest was a gay prostitute that operated a sex for hire escort operation out of Frank's D.C. domicile.

    Consistent with the quality of Frank's judgement, he helped former lover Herb Moses land a lucritive job at Fannie Mae while he (Frank) was a member of the House Financial Services Committee that oversees Fannie's operations.

    It never ceases to amaze me that, "whore house Barney" was returned to Congress by an easy margin in 11 subsequent elections. Saints preserve us all!

    Maybe now's a good time to join one of the threads where every conceivable imperfection of the GOP candidates is getting nitpicked.
