Rep. Barney Frank Wont Invite President Obama To His Wedding
Mediaite ^ | May 21, 2012 | Frances Martel

Posted on 05/21/2012 11:28:17 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Rep. Barney Frank is poised to become the first member of Congress in history to be in a same-sex marriage soon, and while his party, particularly in his home state of Massachusetts, had much to do with the rights of same-sex couples to marry, the chief executive of the Democrats (and the nation) is not invited. The reason, Rep. Frank told C-SPAN? “It would ruin the party to have the Secret Service.”

Rep. Frank had no ill words for the President, but made clear when asked on C-SPAN this weekend that he was not amenable to doing anything that would jeopardize the peace of his festivities. As he told the network:

“If he and Michelle wanted to come, I would be delighted and honored to have him, but he will bring the Secret Service. I would be flattered to have the president do that, but it would ruin the party to have the Secret Service. I’m not critical of them, but they can go take their layered protection of the president somewhere else. Not to my party.”

Is this Barney’s same “special friend” who was running the male prostitution business from his home?

Too much temptation for Bawney and Obie to fight over Bawney’s boy toy.

Barney Frank & Jim Ready (fiance')

Mr. Ready, a 42-year-old photographer, lives in Ogunquit, Maine. He has a small business doing custom awnings, carpentry, painting, welding and other general handyman services. The two men have been together since spring 2007.

Probably afraid Bambi would put the make on his partner. I would have said bride, but I don’t know who’s the bride or groom is in this case.

Translation. If the secret services attends they will vet everyone attending and some likely don’t want to come out of the closet just yet.

“Will Weiner be there?”
“Whose?”

So I lob a soft ball (ugh) up there and that’s the best you can do? :)

Barney uses his mouth for things other than eating. That is for damn sure! That deformed mouth has been doing double duty for more years than even he will admit.

What does Ready see in Frank?
Why does frank need a carpenter?

Frank looks like a dough boy.

What a freak show these sodomite are. They’re putting circuses out of business.

Rep. Barney Frank won’t have a wedding. He may have a party that he calls a wedding, but it won’t be a wedding. Whatever he does, I don’t want to hear about it.

Maybe his lisp is kinda like a speed-bump, or ribbing for his partner's pleasure?

Jim Ready reportedly is a surfing enthusiast(yeah, right!). The two previously met during a Maine fundraiser.

Ready dominated news in 2010 after a pair of ophthalmologists started to heckle Frank on a airline flight. Frank didn’t comment. Frank told the Boston Globe at the time that Ready, however, had a few words for the passengers.

Frank told news “They wanted to talk to me, but I apologized and said I like to read and watch on planes”. He added “They began to talk louder and that’s when Jimmy (Ready) said, ‘If you’re trying to be bitchy, you’re doing a good job.”

Frank met Ready in 2005 at a political fundraiser in Maine, and they began a relationship in January 2007 after the death of Ready’s partner.

Speaking to the Washington Blade recently, Jim Ready recalled how the Congressman first caught his eye when he came out as gay in 1987, after his partner was arrested for prostitution.

71-year old Barney told the media this week that it’s the first time in his long life that he’s ever been in love. There’s an old Italian adage which says, “An old man in love is like a rose in winter.”

Frank, who is 71, Ready, who is 42

It must be power & money because it ain’t looks and personality.

The Secret Service famously banged broads. Barney Frank does not want them there because he is heterophobic and their presence would “ruin his party”.

Barney is afraid the Bamster would steal his limelight (and maybe his significant other’s heart). There's nothing like money, influence, and power that excites the gays. Image being able write a tell-all about serial trysts and romps with our Muslim CinC. It would be . . . breathtaking. I wounder how the NYT would spin it?
