    Barney Frank should be in prison. Sex parties with underage teen boys took place in his Washington Apartment took place and he got off by simply saying "I didn't know anything about it". The police bust the exact same thing at YOUR residence and let's see how much time YOU do. Barney Frank is a pervert. NO.

    Barney Frank is an extremely intelligent man and knows more about the economic issues facing the country than just about anyone. He would be a very good choice. An added advantage is that he really pisses of the righites and it would give them something to be outraged about now that the War on Christmas is over.

    @Pappaslack That's just more BS from the right. Why don't you attempt to tell me what he has done that caused the problems and I'll give you the truth about what really happened.

    Let's start with his fighting any reform of Freddie and Fannie. You remember these entities, right? The ones that caused the housing collapse. The ones that GWB repeatedly tried to reform.

    Yes and No. Bawney Fwank was a joke in the House so I would say Yes to probably get a good laugh or two. I would say No because of his dismal record. But Deval Patrick will probably appoint him anyways.

    Heck no ! I wouldn't let Bawney Fwank anywhere near my seat . Besides that, he's a puppet politician. Please, don't use B. Fwank & seat in the same sentence , I got all these black helicopters flying over my house & now I got to keep lookin over my shoulder to see if Bawney is approaching .

    It's a temporary appointment. What is it until the special election, like 4 months ?
    While I agree with "fresh blood," these freshmen will pretty much stumble over themselves and be manipulated for the better part of a year

    He probably sat down with his attorneys and accountants and figured out how much more his pension would be if he tacked a little time as a Senator on top of his time as a Rep.

    Barney Frank did not seek re-election, now he wants an appointment? Some say that he didn't seek re-election because he knew he couldn't win. He said that he "had a 'busy and stressful' four years dealing with financial reform after the recession." Does that mean that he helped to create the "fiscal cliff" with all of that effort?

    Of course why wouldn't he want to get back in? the only reason he retired begin with because he thought Obama would lose. man this is his dream get in there with an open checkbook? think of the things he can jam down someone's throat .

    You can believe what you like (and you will. :-) ) but Rep Frank's public statements about his retirement referred to his age, his decades in the House, and the gerrymandering of his district. I do not recall any Democrat publicly predicting an Obama defeat, and certainly not Rep Frank.

    @DARSB don't be ridiculous there's no Democratic has the nerve to publicly say that. but if any of what you said were true he wouldn't be coming back would he? I mean other than the redistricting he still is as old as he was with all those productive years of good service ..lol.

    "think of the things he can jam down someone's throat " Thanks. It's going to take me all day and probably into tomorrow to delete that mental image. Eew.

    He'll get it. They love dirty perverted politicians so they can control them and insulate them from prosecution. Americans are too willfully ignorant to realize this.

    Barney is a professional trough feeder. Apparently the wonderful job he did as a representative did not merit a private sector "pay for your name, but no real work job." As even a temporary(?) Senator, he gets a new chance to improve his resume, as well as move to a better spot on the political trough.

    Odds are good that he will be appointed; one trough feeder takes care of another.
