Skip to comments.Anthony Weiner's rant captures Dem impotence

Dems pursued a procedural tack that required two thirds of the House to prevail, enabling Republicans to defeat it, and obviously opposing this bill was a morally questionable thing to do. But I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that Weiner's rant doesn't do anyone any good -- least of all Dems. Republicans want Dems to respond this way -- to fulminate and rant about procedure and about their inability to pass legislation, even though they enjoy comfortable majorities.

LOL!!! He just trying to prove he isn’t a softy.
I saw the rant on Fox tonight. That guy is a full blown kook. Reminded me of a 5 year old throwing a tantrum.
Nobody talking about how this “billions for health care” will paid for - we are 1.7 TRILLION in debt now.
NO MORE freebies. as far as ‘morally wrong’ - the author needs to get a grip.
Truer words were never typed.
That's awful, he just got married and now he caught something. This guy is a regular Levi Johnson. Get it Johnson =weiner . Get it? weiner johnson ?
I have never seen bias like this in my life.
Between Weiner, Grayson, and Rangle...all I know is they can keep coming for the next 60 to 70 days for all I care. Keep blowing up boys! November is coming and you know you are finished.
gay marriage i assume....
If there was ever a guy who needed to have the shi’ite beat out of him it’s this tic turd.
I’d would be SO glad to do it. A mental and physical midget.
Nothing wrong with the guy that couldn’t be fixed in 10 seconds,with the help of a good tazer.
Its zombie government and the only thing keeping it going is the pure marxist ideologue heart beating in the white house.
We’ll remember in November!! Well said Friend.
Really? Folks in, say, Iowa, should be taxed to pay for benefits to local Firemen and Police in NYC?
If this is so damn important why doesn't NYC raise the money?
A good beating followed by a good tazing would be in order!!
I’ll throw in a lobotomy.
Michael Barone has essentially said Nov “could” be a historic landslide.
Obama has now thrown Rangel under the bus publicly, a looming Sept House trial the worst possible thing they want to endure.
Here’s what it boils down to: The Democrats thought some House RINOs would cross over and give them cover, and when they didn’t, they got pissed. They’re frustrated because the jig is up. Republicans get shut out of the debate but then are expected to carry the Dem’s water.
I just love it when Democrats lose control and wet their pants. You can just feel the frustration and rage. Just like a little kid who doesn’t get his way. I’m surprised he didn’t hold his breath.
The man’s last name fits him perfectly......
WaPo call its analysis “The Plum Line”? Don’t they mean “The Plumb Line?”
Are they illiterates or is this some sort of inside joke among the homosexuals in the WaPo news room (are plums the new gerbils?)?
It’s getting out that the dems attached a bunch of CRAP to this bill (illegals’ bennies) and THAT’S why the republicans voted it down. The repubs were ALL FOR aid to the first responders....the dems just wouldn’t pare it down to that, so, IMHO, it makes the dems look like THEY don’t care about our firefighters, cops and rescue workers. (and, they don’t).
Dems are acting cocky ‘cause their puppetmaster/keeper (see tagline) is going to “buy” the Secretaries of State before the 2010 elections:
Write YOUR Secretary of State-—let THEM know WE know!
Thanks for the info. Maybe Turner can wrap up Weiner in November.
Can you imagine what his wife hears? What a lousey example of manhood....more like another Springer episode..unfortunately in our Capital.
Would you believe his wife’s name is Mrs. Huma Weiner?
That’s a bit extreme: a bucket of water over his head might cool him down a bit. Or maybe they need the “gong” from The Gong Show on the floor.
Somebody should capture Tony Baloney. Anybody have a large butterfly net?
Too bad her name isn’t Ima
I’m sorry, but civil servants already have benefits that are far more luxurious then what can be found in private sector. Why noshould the taxpayers be made to foot the bill to further extend them more benefits when our deficit is so out of control.
What is so evil about fiscal responsibility???
There are non-homosexuals in their news room? Who knew?
I yield back the balance of my time.
Please help Texas watch her borders.
14 live cameras. Watch live and report to border patrol. Night cams in operation.
Weiner was so angry that it had to be about money. Must have been a nice little kickback in there.
It’s an opinion column so he gets to say whatever he wants. Sort of how the other members of the media criticize Fox for being right-wing when most of the program is news analysis and opinion.
Why do we need to spend billions of dollar for healthcare on any group when we have such wonderful Socialist Paradise Health Care?
I guess Houma just isn’t doing it for him.
Sexual frustration explodes on house floor!
This is what you call a target rich environment if there ever was one.
“Are they illiterates or is this some sort of inside joke among the homosexuals in the WaPo news room (are plums the new gerbils?)?”
Both. Or, Thailand.
However, I see you enjoy rhetorical questions.
Impotent Weiner... heh.
This is the guy who married Hillary’s lesbian lover, right?
Yes, Mr. and Ms. Huma Weiner
So the Mrs won’t give Anthony’s weiner a hummah?
He’s totally whacked.
Just watched it for the first time. He got married to Huma, right? HMMM...guess not getting any sex is getting to him! :)
He’s not told the whole story either of course. They had the votes to pass the bill. They needed 218 and had 255 but the House leadership changed the rules so they’d need 290 votes.
Sounds like sabotage to me...then they blame Repubs and their slaves in the MSM will carry the water for them.
Weiner intentionally inserted a poison pill in his bill so that he could rant. I am not sure that is a winning strategy in today’s political climate. The right wing, at least, is not that stupid.
