    Wonder what he's got lined up. Also wonder what his net worth is now...it was rumored to be anywhere between $2M-$5M back in 2009.

    He's kind of old, so I don't think he'd go the rich lobbyist route. Perhaps he'll just go the book route and speaking tour...and watch his hunny bunny surf.

    I suspect FOX will hire him as a commentator

    He's old, but he's an attention whore and needs to be on TV

    I dunno...I'd think maybe Current or MesSNBC. Not sure if Fox would bite.

    I do find it a bit perplexing that the two principal architects of last year's Wall Street Reform bill have both decided to leave their posts. Just odd, IMO.

    And he talks funny, so he'd be a perfect liberal retard for Fox. He could be their Bobo.

    I guess those protests ARE having some positive results.

    He'll just sit back and let those pension checks come in and get even fatter.

    NO BARNEY!!!! DON'T GO!!!!!!!!

    The Dems are considering skipping over her and giving the post to someone else. Racists.

    Can't understand why they wouldn't want her economic brilliance running the House Financial Services Committee...



    Hmm...

    Maybe he will run for mayor of Boston. Love to see him and Menino go at it in a debate. People in the front row will think they were at a Gallagher concert.

    How is a guy whose boyfriend ran a prostitution ring out of their house, whose boyfriend was caught growing marijuana in their house, and who got his boyfriend a cushy job at the very agency that he regulated retiring VOLUNTARILY after 16 terms!?

    From the looks of him, he didn't run in 2011 either.

    I seem to remember him "selling" the service of fixing parking tickets

    He may suck a lot of cock, but at least he still has some good zingers.

    Boo fucking hoo. "Working things out" doesn't mean giving you everything you want, cocksucker. Go home and choke on a sausage. We're busy trying to dig out of the mess you got us in.

    While I'm not much of a fan of O'Reilly these days...I did appreciate the absolute smashing he gave Frank for blaming the Fannie/Freddie meltdown on everybody but himself and his party...

    Some of these guys I'd just wish well in their retirement, but Barney Frank is Bond-villain level of evil. Fuck him. He's on the top ten list of people who have destroyed this nation, and Obama probably isn't even in the top 10. That's how much damage he's done.

    I know he's getting old and everything, but there has to be another reason he is retiring.

    He is committed to the cause in every way, at the national level this guy is one of the top Democrats in terms of raw political power, fundraising, spreading the message, etc... I mean this guy can get the current POTUS on the phone faster than Putin can.

    Do the Dems have someone who can replace him?

    Their internal polling must suggest a huge blow out next year
