Will Tea Party Sink Barney Frank's Reelection Bid?
By Erik Hayden | October 22, 2010 11:53am
Voters Are Starting to Turn Against Frank's 'Consistently Obnoxious Behavior' concludes Boston Globe columnist Brian McGrory, who explains that voters used to give Frank a pass because "he unapologetically and effectively carried the flag for the most liberal of causes." That time may be ending, Bielat has already made Frank look "foolish" and may do so on election day. "Now voters are looking to D.C. and wondering what has gone wrong in a city and a system that is having such a hard time getting things right. The same character flaws that were forgiven in good times might wear thin when times are tough," McGrory figures.
Tea Partiers Are Reveling in 'Panic-Stricken' Frank The Boston Herald's Dave Wedge chronicles the reaction of area Tea Partiers who are "gleefully" reveling in the fact that Frank had to donate an extra funds to his campaign to stave off Bielat and flood of ads before election day. "Frank outraised by $70,000 by opponent Sean Bielat in September pumped $200,000 from his personal retirement account into his campaign to thwart what he calls right-wing attacks from 'bigoted' Tea Partiers." Planned attack ads from the national Tea Party Express are expected to bolster Bielat's bid.
The 'Fannie and Freddie' News May Be Hard to Overcome Ed Carson at Investor's Business Daily notes that taxpayers are having to shoulder a bigger load to keep the mortgage finance giants alive, and that can only be "bad news" for the incumbent: "Frank bet big, and taxpayers are still paying. Perhaps its time voters asked the 15-term congressman to get out of his seat and leave the table."

Our hallowed leader FDR brought us a chicken in every pot. Vote Frank for wieners for everyone’s buns! </ Democrat mode>
Good one! LOL!
It is funnier because it is based on a sad reality. Rep. Frank has led a charmed life, where he has repeatedly managed to avoid the consequences of his behavior. Well done, Scott!
Not if he keeps his hole plugged...
As chilling as the Chinese Communist professor ad is, the Bielat ad is just as FUN.
I can use FUN these days. So can we all.
Vote Frank for wieners for everyones buns
That really did make me LOL. That is classic.
