Skip to comments.( Sean Bielat ) A GOP unknown is in striking range of Barney Frank
Posted on 09/30/2010 11:01:24 PM PDT by george76
Sean Bielat, the Republican candidate for Congress in Massachusetts' 4th District, has had just one conversation with his Democratic opponent, Rep. Barney Frank.
It was in August, at a parade in New Bedford. "I went up to introduce myself and said, 'Nice to meet you,'" Bielat recalls. "He said, 'I wish I could say the same, but you've made this personal. You've been attacking me.' Then he turned and walked away."
Bielat remembers thinking that was a little odd, since at that very moment Frank's Web site featured plenty of attacks on Bielat. But the brief encounter set the tone for what has become an increasingly contentious campaign. The nervousness plaguing Democrats nationwide has touched even Frank, a 14-term incumbent who hasn't faced a serious challenger in years.
Bielat is 35 years old, a Marine who spent four years on active duty and is now a major in the Reserve. He's a graduate of Georgetown University with a master's from Harvard and an MBA from Wharton. He's devoted a good portion of his professional life to manufacturing the high-tech robots that defuse improvised explosive devices in Iraq and Afghanistan. In other words, he's a serious man.
In the spring and summer of 2009, Bielat watched in dismay as Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress pursued one big-government initiative after another.

Perhaps the Tea Party Express should be endorsing Sean Bielat, instead of Democrat scum like Walt Minnick!
In fact, has the Tea Party Express actually endorsed any grassroots challengers for the House, or only incumbents?
I CAN think of a better title for this article, though. Yikes!! “Striking distance?” Oh the horrid imagery....
Brain floss, brain floss!!!!!
This candidate sounds TERRIFIC! May God bless his efforts to replace a very arrogant man who feels his job gives him the right to be uncivil.
ex-Marine who holds a degree from Ivy League schools. I dont care much about the degree but he served for 4 years and no Marine backs down from a commie fudgepacker named Barney.

Barney Frank is a DEGENERATE!! VOTE HIM OUT!!!!
Let folks know about Barneys record on NOT protecting children.
It doesnt matter where you live - pass it on - hes their Poster Boy
Barney Frank going down like, well, Barney Frank.
“in striking range of barney...”
I’d be careful about getting to close. I think Barney might enjoy an encroaching striking range.
“too” close, that is...
Another degenerate MSM hero. They love him.
Thermometers have degrees and we all know where they stick thermometers!!
poor Barney, he’s been living in his leftist cocoon for so long that he doesn’t know what it’s like to face a real challenger in a real political campaign
let’s hope that Barney goes down
ooops, wrong imagery there, huh?

Thank you for helping!
Joe Miller is running for the Senate, not the House.
There were a number of non-incumbents TPX endorsed for the Senate, all for open seats except for Joe Miller and Christine O’Donnell, but not one challenger was endorsed in a House race.
I thought the Tea Parties were all about political outsiders taking on the Washington Establishment that corrupts both parties. Apparently not to the Tea Party Express.
Correction: Delaware was also an open seat. Castle wasn’t the incumbent, he just acted like it.
Oops! That’s still the Senate. Sorry about that. ;o)
However, the House should be ours, and has been in the W column for quite a while. It is the People’s House, after all.
“In fact, has the Tea Party Express actually endorsed any grassroots challengers for the House, or only incumbents?”
I think the TEA Party Express is putting their money and endorsements where they are needed most.
“Joe Miller is running for the Senate, not the House.”
Yep...you’re right! I realized that while I was in bed, and got out of bed to correct myself.
“I thought the Tea Parties were all about political outsiders taking on the Washington Establishment that corrupts both parties. Apparently not to the Tea Party Express.”
I dunno...I think the House has been in the bag for some time...IF the turnout is as we’ve been led to expect.
The Senate, OTOH, is where the fight is.
Have you missed, or ignored, the fight between the Ruling Class Republicans and the Country Class Republicans? The Ruling Class Republicans in the Senate are the worst, and aren’t up for election but once every six years. At least the House Ruling Class isn’t able to afford the lofty goals that the Senate...Ruling Class on steroids...is able to afford.
However, the House should be ours, and has been in the W column for quite a while. It is the Peoples House, after all.Republicans need every seat they can win to take back the House from Pelosi and her flying monkeys.
I think the TEA Party Express is putting their money and endorsements where they are needed most.I don't know about that.
Have you missed, or ignored, the fight between the Ruling Class Republicans and the Country Class Republicans?Certainly not, but it's really not Ruling Class Republicans vs. Country Class Republicans.
In a ideal world Bonny Fwank, Chris Dodd, Bill Clinton and Jimmah Carter would all be sharing a jail cell with a single bed, hot bunking it. The Community Reinvestment Act forcing banks to give loans to NINJAs (No Income, No Job, No Assets) pushed by these collectivist cretins eventually crashed the economy.
Watch out, Sean.
Barney has a reputation for coming from behind.
Drove by Barney’s campaign headquaters the other day. The sign on the front door said,
“Enter in Rear”
It is understandable that in their first meeting Barney treat Mr. Bielat with such disdain.
After all he isnt dealing with a Gentleman, he is dealing with a fem homosexual in a fem snit.
Watch out, Sean.
Barney has a reputation for coming from behind.
Perhaps the rest of us should head over to seanbielat.org and donate a few!
as a FReeper put it
OK, now that’s just one really ugly (albeit clever) metaphor.
Bawney Fwank is the epitome of all that is wrong in today’s Democratic Party.
thanks george76 for the topic.
Thanks JulieRNR21 for this contribution link:
in striking range of barney... Id be careful about getting too close.”
I agree. I’d want to see the poll, but not the pole.
