Good, they lean too far left. This should bring them closer to the center.

I’m surprised it took this long. Guess he misses people pretending to care about what he has to say. John McCain will be this same way; the guest who never leaves. “I’ll do it without a salary! C’mon guys, I need a TV show here!

It will be a race to see which is the biggest boring blow hard, Frank or Joe Kernan. If this is CNBC’s answer to cratering ratings, they should be off the air by next summer.

Yes as they teeter-totter completely around the axis to the right. Are you kidding me! Frank is the left of Castro for crying out loud, don't even get me started on what he and Dodd did before and after Dodd-Frank.....

IOW

the democrat party/obama admin puts a new political officer (see ussr) on the cnbc set to surpervise news to ensure proper party propaganda.

I REALLY wish FBC would ditch imus and provide real business news.

CNBC is already about to lose viewers to the Fox Business Network when Maria Bartiromo’s fans follow her to FBN.

And now, liberal anti-business Democrat Barney Frank will be sending further hordes away every time he opens his mouth.

This would be an ideal time for Roger Ailes to try to attract free-market enthusiasts Rick Santelli and Larry Kudlow to FBN.

Is the ANYONE at MSNBC or CNN who is not a homosexual? Barney should fit right in, or they will fit right in Barney’s mouth and other parts of his anatomy.
