    Washington (CNN) -- Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank, a prominent 16-term liberal Democrat and arch-enemy of political conservatives nationwide, will announce Monday he does not intend to seek re-election in 2012, according to a statement from Frank's office.

    Frank will hold a news conference in his district to discuss the decision at 1 p.m.

    Good
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    From David Hawkings' Daily Briefing (Congressional Quarterly/Rollcall) which comes into my inbox every day at lunchtime:

    "The decision amounts to a tacit acknowledgment that he and other Democrats have concluded they have no real shot at reclaiming the House majority next fall, when Frank will be 72. (He is the ninth House Democrat this year to announce retirement plans.)"

    Barney Frank to Announce He Won't Seek Re-Election
    - Fox News

    Longtime Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., will announce Monday he is not seeking re-election, holding an afternoon press conference in Newton, Mass., to offer details behind his decision.

    The 16-term lawmaker, whose name is emblazoned on the banking reform law that passed Congress last year, had long been rumored to be ready for retirement. He was previously chairman of the House Financial Services Committee but is now ranking member since Democrats lost the majority in the 2010 midterm election.

    The Dodd-Frank law, a contentious set of provisions that Republicans say add layers of regulatory burdens without preventing potential future meltdowns, was made in response to the near collapse of the banking industry in 2008. Among other actions, it created a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to oversee access to banking products and required listing ratios of executive pay to median employee salaries.

    Frank, 71, was first elected to the House in 1980, and is one of the first lawmakers to announce he is homosexual. >>>

    Frank is now the 17th House Democrat to flat-out retire or step aside to seek other office. Republicans have announced seven retirements this cycle. He is also the second House Democrat to announce his retirement in three days and the second Massachusetts Democrat to say he's stepping down. Rep. Charlie Gonzalez of Texas announced his retirement over the weekend. Rep. John Olver decided a few weeks ago not to run for another term.

    It is great news. Too bad his position on the Finance Services Committee will be filled by another moonbat, the "Hon." Maxine Waters.

    I wonder if we should start a pool on when Stretch Pelosi's gonna decide it's time to retire?
