Congressmen: Jackson Jr. suffering tremendously
3:54 p.m. CST, November 24, 2012
After Saturday's service, Davis and Rush said they have not seen Jackson and don't know where he is. But they said they understand why he has not yet spoken publicly about his resignation.
"He can't take the pressure," Rush said.
Rush said when he and Davis visited with Jackson a few weeks ago, the 47-year-old son of a civil rights icon broke down in tears several times. They said they don't want others to see him that way.
"He's suffering under a tremendous, tremendous toil," Rush said. "And chief among that toil is he says he does not want to be an embarrassment to his children, to his family, to the people of the 2nd congressional district ... That's what he is concerned about."

Jackson was temporarily back in Washington last month when he was spotted at a nightclub drinking with other women. He returned to the Mayo Clinic but was again released, the facility said Tuesday.
You can bet that if Barry Benghazi had a son...
Oh, he suffers tremendously my a##, he’s playing the victim to get off. It’s so obvious its sickening and he will walk because he’s black. There I said it prove me wrong
I can’t imagine any chance of him going to prison, surely he would get a POTUS pardon from Baraq?
Yeah, very remorseful.
You be right.
“he says he does not want to be an embarrassment to his children, to his family, to the people of the 2nd congressional district ... That’s what he is concerned about.””
Then he shouldn’t have decided to be a crook! But then, that was for-ordained when he decided to be a politician in Chicago. and a Black one at that!
Not much sympathy for Jr. in the comments section after the article.
About-to-be-indicted-itis is such a horrible disease, isn’t it?
Oh, I think he’s suffering all right. Just all all rats suffer when they know that cheese aroma they were following let them right into a trap which has no way out. He’s been under the microscope ever since the Blago tapes and having no integrity or courage, he’s now folding under the pressure.
And you know full well he’s not sorry for what he did. But is is VERY very sorry he got caught.
What a steaming load that is.
Icon my arse. He's the 47-year-old son of a race-baiting, womanizing, shake-down artist and nothing more.
“He’s suffering under a tremendous, tremendous toil,” Rush said. “And chief among that toil is he says he does not want to be an embarrassment to his children, to his family, to the people of the 2nd congressional district ... That’s what he is concerned about.”
Has Mr Jackson only recently developed this desire? The reason I ask is his long term actions seem to indicate that he wasn’t particularly concerned about this issue.
“accompanied by clergy?”
By that, I assume you mean his father and Rev. Al?
he’s suffering because he knows he’s a tremendous crook and an embarrassment and a fraud, and he can’t escape it, his mind won’t let him.
He is a minority democrat in a minority majority democrat district. In other words, he has one of the safest jobs in America. He could have ridden that his whole life, retired in his seventies, all the while laughing at the rest of us who have to struggle to make a living. That's the most privileged and least stressful life I can imagine. The "pressure" is entirely self caused. No sympathy from me.
He’s suffering because he got caught.
Too bad scumbag.
Hillary would say, “I Dont Feel No Ways Tired.”
Jesse Junior hasn't accomplished a single useful thing in his entire life.
Well, upon reflection, maybe that was it. Pressure to accomplish a single worthwhile thing. And he couldn't figure out how to do it...
Gotta do what you gotta do to keep from being indicted.
Not at all; it would be impossible to embarrass the people of the IL 2nd Congressional District. Ditto with many other ill IL districts too!
Vince, my sentiments exactly. But why is he resigning? People in IL would defend him to death. As his ol’ daddy says, “Up with Hope, Down with Dope.”
Sheeeeyit. Somebody don't know the meaning of the word "toil".
I'll bet Junior's hands are softer than a roll of Charmin.
Uh? Whitey’s fault???
Well there’s toil as in extremely wearying work,
and then there’s toil as in “toils and snares” (cf. Amazing Grace). (That sense means trap.)
I guess he’s suffering under a trap. One he made for himself.
First, it's too late - - that assclown has been an embarrassment for at least a decade.
Second, this crocodile-tear charade to get sympathy and a lenient sentence better not work.
the Ultrasonic Fiddle?
Hey Junior Jackass, cheer up.
I found another doctor for ya....
So let’s lay this out, as it should be.
He’s a whining, crying, bedwetting pu**y who wasn’t crowned as “The Next Big Black Thing”....so he assumed the fetal position.
Screw him, his dad, the whole lot of ‘em. Blacks in this country had best wake their sorry asses up. They’re being led down the primrose path by snake-oil salesmen....and have been for decades. Pawns. Tools.
How does it feel, black America? To be treated like idiots.....and better yet, to respond exactly as THEY want?
Morons, all. God help us.
I figure if the little sheyit had been aiming and been promised the White Hut, then his breakdown may have been for real. Imagine Jesse Jr / Chelsea Hubbell 2016!
The “Congressman” on the left looks like Fred Sanford ... and he’s wearing a T shirt under his jacket!
The Japanese might be able to suggest an honorable way to end this ordeal.
Hmmm, let me get this straight. Did he choose to be a politician first or to be black?
Black + supposed mental illness (I’m sure backdated to before said crimes occurred) = somehow we’ll be paying him and no charges will ever be brought. He will miraculously recover without medication or therapy. Do we really even KNOW he’s being treated for anything? If you’re being treated at the Mayo clinic they usually don’t let you out just whenever you feel like it to go drinking with friends and women that aren’t your wife.
This idiotic SOB never did an honest days work in his life and neither did his father.
The legal AXE is about to fall. Will Obama pardon him?
This is what all the delay is about.( Obama , save me!!!)
The idjit belongs behind bars. But he is just a decendent of slaves who were wronged and so he deserves to embezzle from tax payers! Its historic/histrionic justice! ( fascism)....Don’t taze me bro!!!!!!
Its the RAINBOW coalition rendition!!!!/S
Fascism, its here, NOW:
He was probably born with a normal brain and his father screwed him up royally by trying to make him a clone off the old block. Inner turmoil is tearing him apart and he will soon literally tear into two pieces. Really sad what leftist brainwashing can do to a child...
