Skip to comments.Andrew Breitbart: Obama And Clinton Told Rep. Weiner To ‘Get The Hell Out Of Here’
Posted on 06/11/2011 10:02:41 AM PDT by La Lydia
The Rep. Anthony Weiner sexting story refuses to stop escalating to higher levels of impropriety with each passing day, and with the news last night that the Congressman had been speaking to a 17-year-old girl surfacing, calls for him to resign are at a fever pitch. On this mornings Fox & Friends, Andrew Breitbart confirmed there was one underaged girl with which he spoke, and even before that news broke, the heads of the Democratic Party were calling for Rep. Weiner to resign.
Breitbart noted that the news was not exactly surprising to him given the information he had received, but that he had not published much of the stories he had been tipped on because they could not be confirmed. Many of the Twitter conversations between Rep. Weiner and underaged girls were of such a nature that it was possible they could have fabricated them these teenaged girls could have had active imaginations, he noted and so he waited for more information to come in. Now there is at least one confirmed underaged girl with which Rep. Weiner was speaking one who was publicly nursing a crush on the 47-year-old legislator.
I dont know the appropriate communication through Facebook chat that a 47-year-old man can have with a 17-year-old, Breitbart noted, especially in light of the type of communications she was writing about him. Eric Bolling, visiting from Fox Business to host todays morning show, asked Breitbart several times whether he believed there was more to come, to which Breitbart noted that he could not reveal details, but with this guy, where theres smoke, theres an Arizona wildfire the size of Los Angeles.
Whats more, even before the allegations of statutory Facebook-chatting, Breitbart said an impeccable source had told him that the scandal had floated up all the way to the office of the presidency: Obama and Clinton spoke to him yesterday and said Get the hell out of here, he said. I cannot imagine that this guy can survive til Monday....
I hope wiener keeps fighting to keep his job. I think conservatives and the republicans should just sit back and stay out of it for the most part.
I honestly don’t get how any woman, much less a 17 y/o girl, can find this man attractive. The normal teenage girls I know would consider him ancient. I can already see them rolling their eyes at the idea he would be considered “hot”.
Wait a minute. Somebody is going to take advice from an internet flasher? Just like the woman he offered PR help to? I think the DC flacks have a minimal level of expertise, if only being able to sling the BS and not look like a douche doing it. Wiener is a permanent fail in that respect..
“Boy, you are a disgrace to the Democratic Party.”
Yeah, no kidding! Weiner’s getting raked over the coals for some online dirty talk and a pic of his unit, whereas Bubba’s “not havin’ sex with that woman” occurred while she was in the room. What kinda Democrat is Weiner, anyway? </sarc>
Charlie Rangel thinks that “wide stance” Foley was a much worse transgression than Weiner’s FB weiner problem.
Rangel another voice of honesty and morality.
Didn’t he leave his first wife for a man? I could have sworn he said he was gay several years ago.

Who was it? Huey Long or somebody. Gov of Louisiana who said “The only way I can keep from being elected is if I’m found in a motel with a dead girl or a live boy.”
“An influential colleague who has been censured for ethics violations, Rep. Charles Rangel, came to Weiner’s defense Friday. The New York Democrat implied that Weiner’s misdeeds were not as bad as those of which some other prominent politicians. He “wasn’t going with prostitutes. He wasn’t going out with little boys,” Mr. Rangel said.”
Don’t forget Charlie Rangel, the OTHER ‘Rat voice of right and wrong...sheesh...right, Charlie, it’s not like he cheated on his taxes or anything...
If he won’t resign the Dems will redistrict him out anyway. NY loses two seats in ‘12.
Great take on why the Democrat excuse that when republicans do immoral things, it’s fine to excoriate them, but when democrats do worse, it’s forgivable”

I think, since it’s been reported widely that he can’t afford to quit and that he is like a gift that keeps on giving, I think he knows his career is finished and that he wants to make a deal. I’m betting that he will resign his seat if he were offered a relatively good job at the DNC or someplace.
He has nothing to lose and his very presence puts a lot of pressure on the Dems to move him along.
The real irony here is that, by calling for Weiner’s resignation, Democrats are acknowledging that there are in fact standards. But then again, logical inconsistency comes as naturally as breathing to them.
But, but what about Huma???
In fact, I heard a report that Weiner is refusing to resign because he’s not wealthy. Almost his entire income is his congressional pay. Huma also makes six figures, however, with their bills and living costs for those in their crowd, their money doesn’t go too far. It’s doubtful Weiner can go on the lecture circuit or write a book and make money that way. He is not well liked by other politicos, so his chances of getting some other job in politics are very small.
Once his congressional term ends, he’s cut off from a six figure income. I wonder if Huma will cut him off too, if you get my drift.
Pelosi might be stickin’ to the president (so to speak) by backing Weiner.
When Bill Clinton and Obama think you’re a disgrace to the liberals, you’ve really hit rock bottom.
Here’s a guy the American taxpayers are paying a lot of money to do his job, who instead spends his time on the internet probably sitting in front of his pc with his pants down around his ankles, and yet he still won’t resign. Wow what chutzpah!
