Should Barney Frank Be Worried? Time for ‘Different Leadership,’ Says Challenger

Should Barney Frank Be Worried? Time for ‘Different Leadership,’ Says Challenger
October 05, 2010 4:39 PM
ABC News’ Rick Klein reports:

Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., is facing his most serious reelection challenge in recent memory with the emergence of Sean Bielat, a 35-year-old former active-duty Marine who is hoping to follow in Sen. Scott Brown’s footsteps in turning a reliably blue seat red.

Bielat joined us today on ABC’s “Top Line” to outline his candidacy, which has gotten a burst of attention after former President Bill Clinton came to Frank’s district to campaign for the powerful chairman of the House Financial Services Committee.

“Scott Brown won here in the Fourth District. I think that's important to note,” Bielat told us. “Around Massachusetts, there are a lot of people who I think are a lot like me. They've grew up Democrats. They never really questioned it and now they're starting to look at where the country is, what they're party is doing, and they're starting to think, how can we get different leadership? How can we get new leadership?”

Yes he should! Sean Bielat is one of the best candidates out there and deserving of a few dollars of your hard earned coin! I have already donated!

He’s worried - how do we know - he’s on Boston radio (WBZ) right now! He usually hides.

Well, this is the only real challenge Barney Fag — er, Frank — (hey, a US Congressman said that originally, so don’t blame me!) has had. He’ll win, unfortunately, as we are talking about the Boston area. But if a scare can be put into him and his ilk in 2010, perhaps that will portend better things in 2012.

Bielat is probably doing quite well with the living and the heterosexuals.

Is that enough to carry the district that elects and re-elects

Barney, The Bugger of Bayonne?

If anyone knows anything about Bugger's hometown, Bayonne, New Jersey, they would soon realize why the Bugger runs in Boston!

Don’t give up hope on defeating Barney yet! Sean Bielat is closer in this race now than anyone ever gave hime a change of getting. This youtube bit pretty much sums up the 30 year career of Frank:
