Weiner: Iím not resigning
WaPo ^ | 6/9/11 | Felicia Sonmez

Posted on 06/09/2011 11:49:26 AM PDT by markomalley

New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner maintained Thursday that he does not plan to resign his seat, despite growing calls from members of his own party for the seven-term congressman to step down in the wake of his admission that he conducted inappropriate online communications with at least six women.

“I’m not,” Weiner told a reporter for the New York Post on Thursday when asked if he planned to resign. “I’m going to get back to work as best I can.”

Weiner said that he is working on making amends with his wife, senior State Department aide Huma Abedin, who the New York Times reported Wednesday is pregnant with the couple’s first child.

If he believed in The Almighty, some of this tragedy might make some sense to him.

Good! It just hurts the Dems the longer this stays in the news. His whole ego is tied up in being a narcissistic big shot congressman and he can’t let it go. It’s all about him. What a POS.

It sounds like to me that he’s trying to keep the heat on himself, so the heat is taken off the Democrats.

Weenie is following in the footsteps of Ted Kennedy and BJ Clinton.

I think Huma was a WH intern with Monica, so she knows the playbook from actually being on the team.

I see a robust future for Tony Weiner in the Democrat party.

Golden Slumbers/Carry That Wieght/Ending

Artist(Band):The Beatles

Once there was a way, to get back homeward,
Once there was a way, to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry, and I will sing a lullaby
Golden slumbers fill your eyes, smiles awake you when you rise
Sleep pretty darling do not cry, and I will sing a lullaby
Once there was a way, to get back homeward,
Once there was a way, to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry, and I will sing a lullaby
Boy you’re gonna carry that weight, carry that weight for a long time
Boy you’re gonna carry that weight, carry that weight for a long time
I never give you my pillow, I only send you my invitations
And in the middle of the celebrations, I break down
Boy you’re gonna carry that weight, carry that weight for a long time
Boy you’re gonna carry that weight, carry that weight for a long time
Oh yeah, all right, are you gonna be in my dreams tonight?
Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you,
Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you,
Love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you, love you,
Love you, love you, love you
And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love, you make, Ah

This is great. He is a huge albitross around the Dems necks.

They will have to vote to expel him from the House, if they have he guts to do it.

I hope he stays.

To: Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears

Reminds me of a presidential appointee I knew under Reagan. At a 4PM staff meeting in his office one day, he said I know of the rumors I am leaving but let me tell you, I will leave when I am good and ready to leave and not before then. By 8AM the next day he was ready to leave as he apparently was told not to show up!

Weiner has yet to experience the painful, burning drip, drip, drip, that will force him out.

Nancy Pelosi, by “demanding a Weiner probe”, was actually trying to help him, by having his case filed and forgotten.

So, Weiner isn’t going to be a “standup guy”, as a “prominent member” of the Democrat party, and “take one in the shorts”.

Shamless.

He is like a tick.

EVERY TIME he opens his mouth, in his capacity as a Congressman, a Republican needs to rise to his feet and question the truthfulness of what he says. Keep it classy but say something like this: “His track record for truth-telling is suspect at best.”

I'm starting a pool at work over who's leaving first (if ever)K-Daffy or Weiner. Of course K-Daffy would never get a friendly invitation to go sailing with the Clintons on the Sound. Doing so might be hazardous to Weiner’s health.

The reasons why this man should leave are various- but the one I keep thinking of is how in the hell does a Congresswoman sit down to work with him on anything? I mean I would just start laughing out loud...I couldn’t take him seriously I would trust nothing he told me...

It’s pretty stunning- he says he now needs to face, or deal with, the consequences of what he’s done- but then goes blithely on his way not dealing with the first professional consequence- writing his letter of resignation to Pelosi.

Undoubtedly.

But lets make no mistake about where the REAL problem lies.

It is not with idiot, arrogant perverts like Weiner, or even with the Democrat power elites. It is with the roughly 50% of Americans who vote to keep these people in office.

Sex issues didn’t result in Clinton leaving office.
Why should they result in Weiner leaving office?

If Bill Clinton is his mentor, the only way he is leaving office is with a vote or armed guards escorting him out. The two men have no shame whatsoever.

No need for him to: the media will make him look as good as they can and meanwhile protect the rest of the Dems.

That’s just their job, why shouldn’t he count on them doing it?

I’m with you friend. I say let “the “Dirt Bag” remain in congress. Weiner will be the Democrat “gift” that gives to Republicans every time he opens his mouth. Rush Limbaugh believes the same. Nancy Pelosi has further sunk herself by not demanding that Weiner resign instantly. This Weiner episode is deep and dark and....Huma, the dutiful wife is in it up to her neck, along with Hilllary Clinton. These people are low life from head to toe!!!

You’re a sick, selfish SOB who’s attitude is exactly what’s wrong with politics in America.
