The Almost Daily 2¢ - Representative Frank Losing Control

The following clip clearly demonstrates how dysfunctional and truly counterproductive a career politician can become after some 27 long years “service”.

Representative Barney Frank (D-MA) has enjoyed the benefit of an essentially uncontested seat in the House of Representatives for nearly a third of a century begging the question… Is this the best that the 4th District of Massachusetts can do?

During his lengthy rein Rep. Frank has acquired substantial power now lording over one of the most powerful and influential positions as the Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.

But as I have demonstrated in our exchange recently, he is simply not qualified for the position and as such will almost certainly act as a destructive force pushing our country further into the abyss of insolvency and depression.

People of the country… Can you afford a substantial legislative blunder right now?

People of the 4th district… Do you want to be known as the district that clearly put self interest (i.e. earmarks or simply lackluster civic participation) in front of the public good?
