Losing the representation of U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, first through redistricting and now with his pending retirement, is a big blow to New Bedford and our region.

Mr. Frankâs departure in January 2013 will remove from the House one of its more offensive members. Until then, this petulant, abrasive and downright nasty Congressman will keep making his presence known.
However, it is unlikely that Mr. Frank is leaving for the reason he should depart Congress: out of shame for all he did to stop reform of Fannie and Freddie while there was still time to avert the disaster that almost took down the American economy.Why did Mr. Frank oppose giving these two gigantic financial institutions the same scrutiny as a local bank, a neighborhood savings and loan or a community credit union?
Fannie and Freddie provided âgreaseâ for the Democratic political machine through hundreds of millions in charitable contributions to left wing community and advocacy groups that are critical to Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts. I argue Mr Bulard is of the same mold. He always has been more interested in his party then doing what is right for the citizens of New Bedford, this State and our Nation.

And now Maxine Waters, another dope, stands a good chance of replacing him in his position. What has this country become?
