Damn, that was one of the races at the top of my list.

Well, Grayson and Edwards are gone.

Unfortunately, I fear that Reid and Boxer won't be gone.

The only good news is that Bielat scared Barney enough to keep him spending his money on his own race rather than handing it out to others.

He now has a bit less clout since he can't go to anyone and claim that he helped them win their seat.

Nobody seriously thought he would lose this seat. I mean he has always won by a huge majority and he did it again. He will be in this seat until he leaves on his own or God says it is time to go.

All I can say is I’m glad I don’t live in a district that would elect Barney Frank. He causes the housing disaster in the nation and gets rewarded with re-election. What a bunch of idiots in Frank’s neighborhood.

I won’t be surprised if Massachusetts goes, almost, “all D’s, at all levels”, yet again, just as I predicted. This is Massachusetts with a “moonbat majority” of voters.

God hasn't abandoned them; they turned away from Him. I am overwhelmed by sadness at this news.

Well, maybe he couldn’t be voted out of office, but with a new GOP majority he could maybe be indicted.

The most miserable man in congress, probably the one most responsible for the mess we are in, is reelected.

It doesn’t seem Massachusetts is too smart.

This is actually good...

Now he can face corruption charges and be removed from office in full nationwide view.

I called this 10 days ago at: Frank 68% Bielat 32%.

4th Dist is VERY Liberal and also full of Barney “types.

Earl Sholley, a true conservative, was defeated by the same margin the past two elections when he ran against Frank.
Anyone who expected Bielat to win was inhaling the smoke.

Hard to believe anyone who looked into Frank's key role in the subprime mortgage fiasco, his protection of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac could vote this POS back into office. I believe he threatened to sue Citigroup if they tightened their qualifications for loans.

Are there no unemployed people in MA, do they not understand how pivotal this asshole was in creating the financial mess we are in.

It's a sad statement that people are stupid enough to reelect someone with his record of failures over the last 4 years. Did his opponent even mention Frank's role in the financial crisis.
