Anthony Weiner, ‘Empty, Soulless Vessel,’ Not Making Any Promises About His Marriage
New York Magazine ^ | 10/17 | Joe Coscarelli

Posted on 10/17/2013 9:31:29 AM PDT by nickcarraway

GQ has the depressing campaign post-mortem/autopsy with fallen angel Anthony Weiner ("The Year of Living Carlos Dangerously," heh), and it's what we've come to expect from a man who can talk forever and say almost nothing. Weiner, though — his candidacy and likely his political career dead and buried — did seem to let his guard down a bit when discussing his relationship. It gets dark.

Asked if he and Huma will stay together, Weiner responded: “One thing I’m grateful for is that now I’m under no obligation to answer anything like this,” he said. “But we’ve had a very rough time. It causes me a great deal of pain in the way she gets reported and the way she gets discussed. Her treatment in the press has been rough. It pains me because I deserve it. She doesn’t.

“I duck it as best I can,” he added, “but her reputation has become the Woman Who Married an Idiot and Stuck with Him. More of it rolls off my back, because that’s the way I am constitutionally. She’s more sensitive. I’m just an empty, soulless vessel, so it doesn’t hurt me as much.”

Weiner delivered that last remark with an utter lack of humor. Everyone's pretty tired of laughing anyway.

Sounds like he’s following a Hillary script: become a victim, even if you are a victim of your own passions.

Sounds to me that he FINALLY is really sorry about what he put his wife through. We have a term called being a ‘mensch’. This is the first time I’ve seen his public comments sounding like he is finally understanding what being a husband is all about.

As much as I dislike her politics NO ONE deserves what she was put through.

I see less rationale for this marriage than I did for the Clintons marriage. I could see Hillary going for Bill when they were young-—he had a great personality and was smart and driven—they were both liberals as well. Neither of the Clintons were into politics yet. Weiner, a Jew (probably non-observant)has an obnoxious personality, nothing to look at, driven and not well liked by his colleagues when he was in Congress. Huma Abedine a Muslim who is up to her tuchas in Muslim Brotherhood connections, don’t know if she has a personality, not very good looking, driven (towards what?)—was Hillary the match maker here?

He will stay married to Huma as long as Huma is working as Hillary’s beard.

Huma will stay with Hillary as long as she is considered viable as Presidential candidate. Huma is in the best place right now for her friends & family of the Muslim Brotherhood, for information. If Hillary is elected President, Huma will be their top source.

It was a marriage of convenience designed to obscure Huma’s romantic relationship with Hillary, and to make the empty soulless Weiner seem more human.

He will be back. So will John Edwards, and a host of other “fallen angels.” If we ever get there, the race for 2016 is going to be a veritable pageant of lepers, freaks, and bomb throwers. All good street theater for the masses.

Crap! Cry her a river, that rug munch'en, mooselimb, bomb throwing bitch knew exactly what she was marrying and stuck with him for political reasons.

She could care less about what the peons think about her or her weiner or her rug munchen on the hildabeast.

I doubt that he had much to be happy about with Huma. I think she will stay with him as long as he’s useful to her, then she drops him for some middle eastern guy with a long beard.

Of course, the more notoriety the better. The American people no longer vote for qualified candidates, they vote for people who are fun to watch. We live in the age of the celebrity where any publicity is good. It started with Bill Clinton and is getting worse. We live in a soap opera or reality show full of exhibitionists and voyeurs.

If that happens Huma will be the Muslim Brotherhood’s ultimate Trojan Horse and America will be lost to Islam.

“I’m just an empty, soulless vessel, so it doesn’t hurt me as much.” Weiner said limply.

It was also a marriage of convenience to give the Muslim Brotherhood closer ties to seats of power. Co-presidents and all that. Same goes for mayors these days.

Mmmmm....Huma's no slouch in the political opportunism dept, either....she'll pocket a buck whenever she can.

Huma was pocketing bigtime from Teneo Holdings, a firm run by Bill Clinton confidante Doug Band. Teneo is also connected to MF Global--- when ex-Dim Gov Jon Corzine presided over a billion dollar heist. Quoting from Teneo’s Web site: the firm is the “next chapter in strategic advisory.”

==============================================

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has been investigating Abedin’s activities as a paid consultant while she was still working for Hillary Clinton toward the end of the SoS's tenure.

In June, 2012, Abedin changed her employment status at the State Department from being a full time employee with the title of deputy chief of staff to being a “special government employee,” a type of contractor that allowed her to take on private clients in addition to her government job that included Hillary Clinton’s post-State Department transition team, the William J. Clinton Foundation, and Teneo Holdings, a firm run by Clinton confidante Doug Band.

Abedin’s change in employment status was exposed in a June article in Politico, which reported that Abedin and Weiner reported income of $490,000 in calendar year 2012, $360,000 of which represented a combination of both of their consulting incomes.

Grassley has been pressing the State Department and Abedin to answer a slew of questions over the arrangement ever since.

“It appears that Teneo may have been compensating Ms. Abedin for gathering information from government sources for the purpose of informing investment decisions of her clients - or in other words, political intelligence,” Grassley wrote in a June 13 letter.

“This raises important questions about whether Huma's dual role was adequately disclosed to government officials who may have provided her information without realizing that she was being paid by private investors to gather information.”

===================================================

ALSO RAISING ITS UGLY HEAD IS THE CLINTON/MUSLIM TERROISM CONNECTION

FIVE SECOND BENGHAZI QUIZ

(Q.) Who holds the key to unlocking the Benghazi secrets Obama and Hillary will not divulge?

(A.) That would be Egyptian Gen Al-Sisi who drove blood-thirsty Muslims out of Egyptian politics and has vowed to rebuild the 63 churches torched by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Right now, sitting in an Egyptian jail is a man al-Sisi arrested for inciting terrorism. That man is Gehad al Hadad....once employed by the tax-exempt Clinton Foundation.

THE CLINTONS IN-HOUSE MUSLIM TERRORIST the Clintons tax-exempt foundation employed a Muslim Brotherhood activist.

Gehad el-Haddad
(The stupid Clintons did not know Gehad was Farsi for "jihad")

Gehad also knows how the Muslim Brotherhood launders money to finance terrorism, using "tax-exempt foundations."

As far as I know, Egypt does not have any limitations on obtaining information from terrorists---like prohibiting waterboarding, etc.

Rest assured---we will know everything---all in good time.
