Posted on 10/31/2010 6:08:54 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
U.S. Rep. Barney Frank received an endorsement from an unusual source Friday - a former Republican opponent.
Edward McCormick of Norfolk, who ran unsuccessfully against Frank in 1992, said he was supporting his former foe because of his superior knowledge of issues and his willingness to work with Republicans to get things done.
"Perhaps it's not every day in politics that a former opponent endorses Congressman Barney Frank. However, these are not ordinary times and as a Republican, I'm proud to support Barney Frank for re-election because of his leadership, commitment, and willingness to always hold true to his principles," McCormick said.

In this atmosphere alot of people will just plain ignore what this loser has to say. Go Sean!!
If Fwank is having to drag out opponents from a decade ago to help him survive, he is in trouble. Wonder which gay bath house they met in.
They have Quisling Republicans in Massachusetts? Who would’ve thunk it!
Indeed. There were more times that could be counted when Barney Frank voted with Republicans on an issue that went against the Democrat party line, right?
I think the guy has Barney confused with some other ultraliberal blowhard who's helped trash the economy.
By knowledge of economy he must mean they shared a bath. This must also mean that the race was fixed back then.
Bwayney’s opponent in 1992? No body fresher? Wonder what favors he got. 18 years is a long time.
I am without words, I tell you without words.
Its a nasty thought what Barney had to pay for that endorsement..
It goes to show what a bunch of losers the New England RINOs are.
Wonder what Barney had to suck for that endorsement??
Hm. I lived in Norfolk, MA for 20 years — and I never heard of “Edward McCormick” — and the place is just a village...
Those brilliant, really really smart, intellectual-genius
Democrats are always superior, aren’t they.
Maybe they should take their superior intelligence and create another paradise in Cuba; with the permission, of course, of the brilliant, really really smart, intellectual-genius, Mr. Castro. Now there’s a really smart, really brilliant genius who helped change the world. (into a larger cemetery with unmarked graves.)
I like it when establishment types self-identify. It will make it easier to separate them in future activity. This is happening 10x in the Angle-Reid race.

A Dem donor, supported Sotomayor... what a Republican!
Definitely sounds like one of the Ben Dover boys.
Thank you. We can always count on an on-site FR Broadband Reporter to give us the facts. That’s why FR is the best news and commentary site on the Web!
Well, it could have been true.
No. The only time the Democrats work with Republicans is when Republicans vote the Democrat way, not the other way around.
Whom is sucking Whom in the Great Commonwealth of Massachusetts??
On the other hand it pretty much sums up all you need to know about RINOs. The same bastatds who’re conspiring as we speak to unhorse Palin.
I cannot imagine the demrats allowing the coopted (by them) GOP revert to conservative control. It will be fascinating watching a second new, true and national opposition party (to the demrat party) be born. The opposition vacuum will be filled by some entity one way or the other. It’s a natural law.
Stockhom Syndrome in the former very blue but turning purple Bay State?
That is funny rite there! Did you send a copy to Bawney Frwank? He would prowbabwly love it.
Frank must have some incriminating photos of this guy.
Interesting how that endorsement says nothing about whether or not Frank's "principles" (snicker) are actually worth supporting. So, that same anodyne statement would seem to cover Pol Pot, Josef Stalin, the Unabomber, Osama Bin Laden, and other paragons of virtue...
I think he lives in that old house at the end of Lake St.
“x-GOP foe endorses Frank”
Just another.......FREAK FOR FRANK!!!

Too bad those "things" are destroying our country.
The mush-mouthed POS sweetpea needs to be run out of town on Tuesday.
Course, I'd rather seen him tried and put in prison for life, but that's just me.
