Skip to comments.Analysis: Dem leaders struggle on Weiner's future
Posted on 06/07/2011 12:59:32 PM PDT by hope_dies_last
WASHINGTON So far, House Democratic leaders haven't publicly demanded Rep. Anthony Weiner resign after admitting he sent suggestive photos of himself in his underwear via Twitter and then lied about it to everyone within earshot.
But they've made it clear they'd appreciate it if he'd go away. And soon.

It will only be a matter of time for the hatchet to fall, for even the "crats" know it is better to sacrifice one of their own, before the demo becomes more graphic.
I say take one step further and probe Charles Schumer of New York, since he said on May 31st, that he thought "Weiner was innocent", read more at:
Nevt headline “Dem leadership decides to cut weiner off”....
Weiner is still lying, and he is still vulnerable to blackmail. So he’d better not be on any important committees.
I’m not surprised that Weiner hasn’t resigned, and announced he won’t.
Since the liberal view is that there are different standards for Republicans and Democrats, Weiner doesn’t expect to have to resign. He thinks he made nice with everyone by acknowledging mistakes and errors in judgement and all that. The liberal view is that all should be forgiven and forgotten once someone admits to mistakes.
Why would any of this remotely be a problem?
Weenie is following the path to Democrat iconic success of Ted Kennedy, BJ Clinton, and John Edwards.
I have to agree. The only thing the democrat leadership is weighing is if he can be forgiven for daring to oppose Queen Nancy. He did join in on the plot to overthrow her and that, and that alone will determine his fate. If they do decide to save him, he is golden. They will shove the matter to the Ethics Committee, rinse his sins there and have him back in a power position after a couple of years out of the limelight.
Democrats have no moral code and use this fact to their advantage. In their minds having no morals means that there are no consequences for sins. Sins are traps for saints, not for demons.
Isn’t this just a pre-requisite to higher office for a DEMONcRAT? Only a person with a moral compass, whose needle actually works properly would resign after such a thing were discovered and they then admitted to it.
I can’t ever imagine voting for a DEMONcRAT, but I also can’t imagine voting for Nit Wit Mitt either...
Palin/Cain 2012 thru 2020.
Let him Stay. Drip Drip
LOL. Good for them he’s not black and homosexual also. They’d have a real problem condemning him for anything.
Hang in there Tony, don’t let the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy win. We need someone to speak the truth to Power, to stand up for the little guy, to refute the War Mongers. Who will protect the old folks, if not you? Who will help the orphan, feed the poor, defend the defenseless?
But most of all who can provoke hysterical laughter at the mere mention of his name?
(This thread was just fine without pictures)
Unfortunately, this turkey is done. When head RAT, Reid, says “call someone else” he is finished.
Just like they denounced Clinton and Rangel and and and. This is how the play the game. Feign outrage when the issue is hot, let it die down and then pretend it never happened.
Gone wobbly on the Weiner, eh?
Perhaps some of the more intelligent realize that the Clinton strategy did not help their party. Had they driven Slimey out of office, Big Al would have been running as an incumbent and would have won in 2000.
Weiner is gone even if he doesn’t know it.
C’mon, they’re doing it wrong and wasting great headline opportunities.
Headline should read- “Dems struggle with Weiner”
I’m sorry, I know, you are so right. Dang...
Too funny. The Democrats are struggling whether or not to condemn a guy who sent naked pics of himself to minors.
That actually explains quite a lot.
People are saying some pretty bad things about that picture. Ugh.
However, breitbart is not blackmailing him. Breitbart is a decent person.
Is Mooch Obozo trying to get rid of the Hot Dog now????
They better force him to resign ... he can be the proverbial scapegoat ... because We The People are sick and tired of the Double Standard that Democrats use to smear the GOP and coverup their own misdeeds.
