I bet his re-election fund is getting a ton of donations right now. Democrats LOVE to support their brave representatives.

Barney Frank has begun to send funds from unknown sources to “Weeny” Weiner...along with an engraved invitation to join Barney in the Congressional bathhouse!

The only way a Congress Critter in this much trouble “takes responsibility” for their actions is to resign. There is no other acceptable action, and until he goes Tony Dick is going to be dogged every step of the way.

This is enough to make you puke.

Excellent news. He'll be much, much easier to beat now. The campaign ads will write themselves. I'd be collecting money for billboards:

What would we do without Claud Rains?

Other posters say this ensures his re-election and many $$$$ in campaign donations from the true believers. Personally, I think he’s a political dead man walking but haven’t found an over/under line for the timing.

But then, he’s a Democrat ...

Enough said?

He can't say for certain that he did not engage in sexual interaction with minors. Sounds like time for the NY State Police to get involved.

If Kennedy can get away with murder why shouldn’t Weiner not get away with sending lewd pictures?

After all, it was a picture of himself that he sent, not anyone else’s.

If porn pictures come out, or if any of his relationships are underage, then, we will have a new story...again. He keeps referring to that he didn’t know if they were underage, which means to me, just the opposite is true.

I don’t think we’re done roasting this Weiner just yet.

Today’s presser is nothing more than an attempt to kill the story before it gets worse.

Remember when Eric Massa appeared on Glenn Beck's show? The next day Tony Weiner excoriated him and said: "Eric is one taco short of a happy meal".

Now, just using free association it's pretty obvious that "Tony is two tacos short of a new USDA food plate".

This guy is trying his darndest to limit the damage solely to himself, which is true, but he surely is taking pains to keep any connection of his wife to Hillary. He is apologizing only because he got caught, not because there is a real sense of contrition or repentance - or none that I can see judging from his remarks. His arrogance is almost under control in his press conference but his refusal to seek professional help belies his true thoughts. What a crock.

Gerry Studds slept with a 17 year old male page. After congress centured him he got a standing ovation from his next two townhall meetings. Liberals are diseased.

Wiener just became the face of the democrat party.

~Frat-boy pranks, lewd behavior, liar, and very, very bad judgment~

In the midst of painfully high and protracted unemployment and financial distress all over the country, three wars, deaths of our military personnel, and the wholesale gutting of America this WEINER is the face of the left.

Obama can’t be bothered. He’ on the golf course.

So what exactly ‘responsibility” is he taking?

He will eventually quit but as of this moment his congressional seat will be redistricted out of existence. New York is losing two House seats, as I recall.

ABC info babe made a good point. New York is losing congressional seats because of the census and the legislature is likely to throw this prick in with another Democrat to get rid of him. He is almost certainly going to face a primary opponent.

In all honesty I think the Democrats toss the narcissistic ass.

For conservatives, this sounds like a win-win.

While the press will maintain the double standard, it won't be lost on the general public.

How does he show his face in public, let alone stay in office? But, then, I was asking the same questions about Bill Clinton, especially after the Barbara Walters interview of Monica.

ok, so Oscar Mayer was contacted by the (black) college student saying she was being picked on for following Weiner. He responds by sending an underwear picture?

He exercised bad decision making. He lied. He perpetuated a lie. He’s been lying for over 3 years. And making bad decisions for over 3 years.

And he apparently views his female followers as sex objects and playthings.

He accepts responsibility. He apologizes.

But he isn’t resigning.

His arrogance is astounding.

"Responsibility" for a Dem is null word. It has no meaning for them whatsoever.

Why should he quit? The low-lives of New York who put him in office aren;t offended - they do that all the time.

Besides having little Weiner around to poke fun of whenever the left attacks one of ours will be great sport!!!!
