In Case You Were Wondering, Barney Frank Still Acting Like a Dick: “It was very ugly”

Posted by on Nov 14, 2014 at 8:23 am

You ever notice how angry liberals are, like pretty much all the time time?

Grow up, already.

It’s been more than three years since the state Legislature redrew his congressional district, forcing ex-U.S. Rep. Barney Frank into early retirement, but the cranky liberal war horse just can’t let it go.

Case in point: The Massachusetts Humanities Council’s 40th anniversary gala at the JFK Library the other night. Frank was seated at the same table as incoming state Senate prez Stanley Rosenberg, who happened to be the point man for the Senate on redistricting, and Barney wasted no time in letting Stan have it!

“He didn’t say hello, how are you, congratulations, nothing. He just started screaming at him,” said Someone Who Was There. “It was very ugly.”

So much so that the organizers of the event moved Rosenberg and his partner, Bryon Hefner, to another table to get away from the grumpy ex-congressman!

Apparently the gist of Barney’s gripe was that Rosenberg didn’t do enough to preserve Frank’s district after the 2010 census forced the state to lose a seat in Congress. Instead, the new congressional map took New Bedford — a Barney stronghold because of his work on fishing issues — and parts of Fall River out of his district and added Blackstone Valley, where he was not a shoo-in, making the voting bloc more conservative. Instead of running for re-election in the newly drawn district, Frank retired. But apparently not without a lot of hard feelings!

Let’s face it, he wasn’t man enough to run if he face a serious challenger. Chickenshit.

    Isn’t that Blusterin’ Barney’s MO? He yells. He has hissy fits. He brow beats until his opponents cave. Apart from the constant invective and ever-present threat of a “homophobe!” accusation, Frank wouldn’t have risen above city councilman.

    Please do not use the words “hard feelings” in any article about Barney Frank.

    Aside from that, he’s another in a long line of Jonathan Grubers.

    Rather than having their names on a deplorable law both Barney Frank and Chris Dodd should be in jail. They are more responsible than anyone else for the mortgage mess thanks to their misuse of Fannie and Freddie.

    If you listen to Gruber speak, you would almost swear he must have taken diction (stop it!) lessons from Bawney Fwank. He has the lisp down pat.

    I wonder if Rosenburg had told Frank to screw you would Frank took it as proposition.

    Barney Fwank is a dick. Barney Fwank sucks. Barney Fwank sucks dick. Basically, Barney Fwank shouldn’t have been the event’s “fluffer” for Stanley Rosenberg and Bryon Hefner… BF needs to find a new bf for a decent M4M massage, perhaps through or grindr ^_^
