Schumer 'pained and saddened'
Politico ^ | June 6, 2011 | Manu Raju

Posted on 06/06/2011 7:45:58 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Sen. Chuck Schumer refused to answer questions Monday evening about the Twitter scandal that has ensnared Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), his one-time congressional aide.

But in a statement, the powerful Democratic senator said he was "deeply pained and saddened" about the married congressman's admission at a New York news conference Monday that he carried on lewd online conversations with at least half a dozen women.

"By fully explaining himself, apologizing to all he hurt and taking full responsibility for his wrongful actions, Anthony did the right thing," Schumer said. "He remains a talented and committed public servant, and I pray he and his family can get through these difficult times.”

Yeah; right....sure, Chuckie. Only “saddened” because the weasel got caught. Tell me about double standards, Chuck....come on, boy; hit me. Let me hear it all.

God how I loathe these people.

So Chuckie’s a wiener lover too? That comes as no surprise, from someone who epitomizes the word “putz” (Yiddish for penis)

I guess (depending on what one does with it) one can be “pained” and “saddened” if you mess with a weiner.

“Full responsibility” as long as that doesn’t involve paying the price of losing his house seat...

We must keep this pervert as head of the parasite Dems in the house so we can make puns about his genitals on twitter. I do think he was sexting to minors and could definitely do pen time like anyone else doing this. There is a picture so grotesque that they wont show it! Did it go to girls under 18? Inquiring minds want to know.

taking full responsibility for his wrongful actions,———

He hasn’t ‘taken responsiblity’ for anything. He called a journalist a jack*ss, made lewd jokes to female reporters...lied, is a sick pervert whose wife knew it...

Neither has Schumer.

Okay, I need help. My religion forbids me from taking pleasure in someones downfall. Of course I’ll make exceptions for Osama Bin Laden and really horrific people and I’ll answer for that. But a guy like Weiner is in a different category. He’s such a jerk and an AH but he’s not Bin Laden. He’s about in the same category as Keith Olbermann. So what to do? Revel in this guys downfall or just feel sorry for him and be glad he’s gone? Any advice?

I believe Chucky found out about the pervert, set him up, and took him down. This whole thing is fishy. Maybe the Israelis knew about Weiner and told Schumer to shut him down when the kenyan tried to change the Israeli boundaries. Something like that.

It pains Chuck U Schumer, a putz himself, to see another putz, Wiener, get a well-publicized Brit milah performed in public, by a mohel like Brietbart. Oy vey, the shpilkus!

Any advice?

Never feel guilty in reveling over the demise of evil and make no mistake, evil is what Weiner is.

He is a far left demogogue which means he has been using his power for decades to oppress good people.

This is a day for rejoicing; lets hope there are more ahead.

"deeply pained and saddened"

The only thing that "deeply pained and saddened" Schumer was Weiner got more face time on camera than Schumer.

Both Schumer and Weiner are world-class practitioners of “putzpah.”

Schmuckie and Whiner hail from the same NY 9th District, with Schmuck mentoring Whiner as his protege. When Schmuck won a Senate seat in 1998 it was Whiner who took over his House seat .. two peas of a pod, except that Whiner doesn't have half the political instincts as the Schmuckster, nor even 1/10th ...

Weiner is nothing more than a lame caricature of his former boss, perpetually outraged by anything and everything but without the (dare I say?) 'maturity' of Chuck Schumer.

Even Schumer in his early salad days as Congressman wouldn't let something like this fester for more than a day before quelling it.

There’s nothing wrong with being happy that evil people fall.

Weiner is evil. Not just because he’s a sex pervert, his leftist affiliations, beliefs and votes condemn him.

I’m amazed that no one seems to realize one of the worst aspects of Weiner’s perverted prowess is the risk of political blackmail by his “victims.” Aside from the moral aspects, no political servant should place him or herself in a positionn to endanger this nation via blackmai because of their actions.

I think that was one of the most under-reported stories of the BJ Clinton-Monica thing; I believe the Russians were aware of the relationship, causing him to be completely compromised. He showed them, though, that the US no longer finds any kind of behavior unacceptable, by hanging in there without a popular call for his outright resignation.

“Shpilkus” (often spelled “shpilkes” or “shpillkes”) actually means nervous energy, usually applied to someone who just can’t sit still, “ants in the pants.”

Not "pained and saddened" nearly enough in my opinion.

“He remains a talented and committed public servant”

To liberals, ethics, judgment, and self control are not bona fide occupational qualifications, and they brag about it.

Ah, everything is then alright, eh, Chuck? Just an apology and then everyone is to forget. Kind of the way republicans get treated when they have failing, huh?
