Frank Issues Terse Statement On Cowan Senate Appointment
CBS Boston ^ | January 30, 2013 | BOSTON (CBS)

Posted on 01/30/2013 1:11:48 PM PST by TexasCajun

BOSTON (CBS) – One person disappointed by Gov. Deval Patrick’s decision to name Mo Cowan as interim U.S. Senator is former Congressman Barney Frank.

Earlier this month, Frank openly lobbied for the position, saying “I think I’m better prepared than most people.”

Patrick obviously felt differently and chose Cowan, his former Chief of Staff, who has no previous experience holding elected office.

Frank issued this terse statement Wednesday:

“I know Mr. Cowan is committed to working hard and in socially-fair and economically-efficient manner toward resolving pending budget issues.”

“I now look forward to working for the election of Ed Markey to continue this work, and to providing President Obama the support he deserves in carrying out the mandate he received in November.

Maybe he can get a job as a “morality instructor” with the very soon to be out of business Boy Scouts of America.

I though that the Libtards defined racism as voting or supporting a white person over a black person in elections. (If you supported any white person over Obama, you’re a racist)

By that standard, Barney is a racist.

Fair is fair, fat boy. Fair is fair...

If Old Barn wants the job, why doesn’t Old Barn run for it himself?

He is well known in Massachusetts ,it should be an easy win for him.

Does Old Barn feel that Cowan will not support Obama? Or does he just feel that Mo is not capable of giving Obama the support he deserves? Is he trying to call Mo stupid?

He surely knows that Mo will vote any way Obama tells him to, Why does he feel that Markey can do a better job?

Is Markey one of Barney’s “friends”. A fellow practitioner of the anal arts?

And Hey!!! Barn-—winning by 1% isn’t much of a mandate.

I can understand why Barney has a bug up his ass, but the governor has every right to decide who will fill his seat.

If I were a ‘racist’ like “THEY” claim, I would make some asinine statement like.

Why wouldn’t a BLACK governor appoint a BLACK lawyer, who has had absolutely no political experience, during the administration with a BLACK pResident, BLACK Atty Gen.

However, it is a gutty call in picking the BLACK over the FAG.

(Oh yes, “THEY” claim I am ANTIGAY)

Lets just say I am ANTI LIB

Barney and his liberal friends have been promoting & mandating employers hire less qualified minorities over qualified White Men for at least 4 decades.

Barney Frank meet Affirmative Action !

Oh! The Irony!

Loses his chance to be Senator Frank on the same day he misses out being Mrs. Jim Nabors.

Bad day to be Barney.

Been a nasty week for those Progressives. First, Slow Joe Biden is politically “b!tch slapped” by Barry Zero as he endorsed Mrs. Slick Willy Clinton for a run in 2016. Now, some uppity black guy, whose only experience has been in the sewers of Boston politics, is picked for “Senator for a couple of months” over the experienced former Mass. representative who has for years bent over backward to accommodate some people he represented. The Governor admitted that he would have to do some stroking to settle the unrest in the Mass. Democratic Party.

Hopefully Cowan can have as distinguished a career as Paul Kirk. Time will tell...

On reflection, Barney sez:

“I’m gay, he’s black... it must have been a tough decision for Deval. I’ll get behind (heh, heh) our Governor.”
