Barney Frank – Politician Behind Financial Crisis – Will Not Seek Re-election

Barney Frank will not seek re-election.
The Political Ticker reported:

Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, a 16-term Democrat, will announce Monday he does not intend to seek re-election in 2012, according to a statement from Frank’s office.

Frank’s fingerprints were all over the 2008 financial crisis.

Last month Newt Gingrich suggested that prison would be a good place for Barney.

    Thank god! Now fire up the prosecutions for Freddie and Fannie Mac corruption.

    (BTW, he knows he can’t get elected without Ted Kennedy controlling state politics.)

    Just not seeking reelection is not sufficient…….. The RNC will get back on my donation list when there are criminal complaints filed

    “Last month Newt Gingrich suggested that prison would be a good place for Barney.”

    Only problem I see, is Barney would enjoy prison. Good riddance you lying thief!

    [The bill was drafted in secret by Senators Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), before being passed in a closed-door committee meeting without any kind of hearing.]

    One thing you can say for these career politicians, when the going gets tough the weak fall out. Barney Frank is one of those totally corrupt individuals that will escape paying for his corruptness until he meets his maker. Washington DC is full of people just like him and our job is to weed this corruption out of office not wait for them to retire.

    Great news……Bunny Frunk is finally removing himself from this elected office wherein he has participated in destroying this country. Good riddance. Yes, let the criminal trials begin.

    I have to wonder what role the 2008 financial crisis played in the ongoing European crisis. 2008 pulled the plug on leveraged financing, which is still the keystone of the impending Euro banking collapse. 2008 was the result of Democrats putting people into houses they cannot afford in order to get their votes. Perhaps it may be appropriate to make the case that Barney, Dodd, Obama and their whole stinking cohort are responsible for destroying the Western financial system.

    The other really disturbing element of 2008 was the rush to print money to shore up the leveraged banks and government and kick the can further down the road. Now, today, we are looking at a possible commitment by the IMF to bail out Italy for about $800 US billion. I think the lions share of that would be coming from America. I am pretty certain the reason why that is on the table is to keep the world from falling apart until Obama is safely past the 2012 elections.

    Ya think the OWSers will be upset about #5?

    Me neither.

    Why wait! Go NOW. No one will miss you.

    Could be more to this. Who knows? Maybe another of Bawney Fwank’s boyfriends has been caught running a male protitution ring out of their house.

    I wonder what this bag of scum is afraid of? He was terribly upset when he had a contested race last time around. Maybe he is afraid of what will come out if he has an actual contest again. Bahnee Frank needs to go to prison.

    We better not let him skip out of the country like his co-conspirator Dodd.

    That frees him up to do his jail time. And I’m not joking. Crook.

    Re: #5 (sorry to belabor the point, but this really steams me)

    Why would John McCain or any other Republican want to GIVE BARACK OBAMA MORE POWER?

    He can save a dollar on the ferry to Fire Island all the time now.

    Interesting. Someone has something on him, otherwise he’d stay in office until he dies.
