The Cream Rises To The Top

Yes, just as I was getting all misty-eyed and nostalgic over the very very sad announcement that Barney Frank was not going to run for re-election along comes the joyous news that his replacement will be…Maxine Waters

Wall Street executives are bracing for the possibility that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) will take over as the senior Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee after Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) retires.

Waters is in line for Frank’s spot and could become chairwoman of the panel if Democrats retake the House. Frank announced Monday that he will not seek another term in the House.

The Republic is in the very best of hands, it really is.

    It’s great that Frank is removing his corrupt a$$ from office, but Walters is an effin’ fanatic with a capital “C”.

    As in “Communist”.

    JeffS, Waters could give a Master’s class in corruption.

    As well as one in collectivist delusions.

    True, dat, aelfheld.

    It could be worse, it could be FELLOW UVA ALUMNUS Sheila Jackson Lee.

    Could I resist that? Apparently not.

    *term limits*
    I’ve always resisted the concept because it casts such a negative picture of the voting populace. But…..

    Yojimbo, just kick me when I’m down!

    But at least I can sort of point out that SJL, like Ted Kennedy, went to Virginia Law, a place whose standards clearly are not as rigorous as for undergrad.

  7. She may be being set up for taking a fall. If she does, she’ll scream racism, and that card is MAXED OUT!!

    The Stupid radiated by that woman hurts more than a boil.

  9. Syd B. says:

    As Limbaugh says, Frank’s seat is wide open.

  10. Gary from Jersey says:

    That would be the same Maxine Waters who’s under House investigation for using her office to bail out her husband’s bank? That Maxine Waters?

    As Bernard Wooley commented to Prime Minister James Hacker in one of the episodes of “Yes, Prime Minister”, it’s not just the cream that rises to the top.

    I have it on good authority that the book “Yes, Minister” is an excellent description of how government actually works in a modern democracy: The the politicians’ pitting the political will against the senior bureaucracts’ administrative won’t.
