NEW YORK – New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner (WEE'-nuhr) says racy, shirtless pictures that appeared on a website are him and he's apologizing for what he calls making terrible mistakes.

During a teary-eyed press conference, he says he won't resign.

This makes the guy completely subject to blackmail. He’ll resign soon.

Weiner at today’s press conference, “I don’t know what I was thinking”. This could be said of every American liberal since 1972.

Questions for Mr. Wiener:

What, no arrogance ? No calling the press a jacka$$ ?

Why the crying ? Why not just make smart-aleck tweet ?

I thought he was Mr. Cool, what happened, Mr. Cool ? You seemed to have all the answers, everything was Republican’s fault. You were the genius pandering to the masses.

“NY Rep. Weiner admits he sent lewd pix; won’t quit”

I don’t give a good G**-**mn about “admits he sent lewd pix”.

I care about two words he said: “I lied”

THAT IS WHAT MATTERS! Weiner is a LIAR.

Of course he won't... he's a 'Rat. He's entering this press conference appearance on his mayoral resume as we speak.

If this guy were an “R”, Pelosi and the RATS would have him out on his ass!! By the way, where is the NOW? Strangely silent just like always when a RAT is involved in demeaning a woman!!

My God, get the hook! He can't shut up! Doesn't he have an aide off to the side who knows how to make a "wind it up" signal?

He's stringing this out so long that the press is having a great opportunity to ask the most lurid questions....bringing up subjects the listening audience would never have thought of themselves.

This sex-obsessed perv has a vote on U.S. economic, cultural, security and foreign policies. He's admitted fify times he has bad judgement. He's admitted he's dumb.

His peers should start an investigation after castigating him on the floor of the House....and do everything possible to get this psychotic nut case out of the Congress and out of OUR LIVES....yes!....his vote affects OUR LIVES!

Get the hook, then put him in stocks in Times Square.

He even apologized (kinda) to Breitbart. I’m surprised he didn’t blame Bush or Israel. They’re already nominating him for sainthood over in DUmmieland. What a bunch of fools.

{{{Another photo showed Weiner on a couch with two cats nearby. The website said Weiner sent the photo using the anthonyweiner(at)aol.com account with the subject line “Me and the pussys.”}}}


Where’s Leader Pelosi on this issue? What is her position on self-indulgent depravity?

An American politician caught in the act of raping his 10 year old daughter would stare into the news camera all while coldly stating: ‘I’m not going to resign.’ ‘I’m entitled to my day in a court of law.’ Congress would not expel him and his constituants would re-elect him. For amusement check the demographics of his district. Some people wonder why we are in a mess.

Somebody explain to me what makes so many men risk their marriage and career and everything they have to pull stupid stunts like this and/or extramarital activity? Why?
I have an aunt who says it’s because men are so obsesseed with sex that they’re stupid and that’s why things should be run by women, that men are just dogs and you can’t trust any of them. LOL
Opinions?

What a joke. This guy is whining and crying about how sorry he is. He’s only sorry he got caught!

The bigger question in my mind is why did the DNC and MSM throw his pitiful carcass under the bus and what is going on right now that they don’t want us to see as they waste all kinds of time talking about this tool and his weinerpix? And what’s Bummer up to today?

If he’s so sorry, why can’t he just shut up and resign instead of whining about it in a half hour presser?

He should be forced to resign on the basis of his sheer stupidity alone...

"Personally, I think he’s a political dead man walking but haven’t found an over/under line for the timing."

I had Return Day (after recess) but I'm tearing up that ticket. The key is, he obviously hasn't lined up any seven-figure grift yet in the private sector.

The new line is 3 days over/under. It depends on who reaches out to him. The Clintons can make him go, and they probably will.

OK. So the ‘RAT tells Huma BEFORE their marriage that he is doing these slimy things over the computer and ‘phone and she proceeds to marry him. Why?

No doubt Huma told the Hildabeast about this conversation.

I have to think Hillary called the weiner and told him to get his butt on TV and grovel and DO NOT mention HIllary’s name. Damage control by pre-emption.

Someone should put together a YouTube video of the various sexual scandals of congresspeople with their party affiliation and whether or not they resigned.

My guess is that the Republicans would have less than a dozen and all would have either resigned or finished their term without seeking reelection. The Democrats would have many dozens and almost all would seek (and probably win) reelection. Finish the video with a comment like: “the Democrats: hypocrisy and perversion are perfectly fine, but only if you’re on our side. Heck, we even had a rapist as one of our presidents.”

Thanks for the reference. That's a US Gub'mnt site so it's fair to C&P the stuff.

Just in case anyone is interested, here's what Tony himself says:

"Protecting Children On the Internet In early 2007 my office did a study that found that over 85% of registered sex offenders in New York City live less than five blocks from schools, and 670 sex offenders live within just two blocks. Some offenders are even closer, permanently residing less than 500 feet away from unwitting parents, educators and children."

Clearly some of the offenders are probably even as close as your nearest elected member of Congress!~

Since Bubba Clinton officiated at his wedding, the Weiner assumed that he was staying true to his marriage vows.

Remember, when a politician says that, it has an entirely different meaning than when the little people say that.

No one can defend the track record men have.

But I can think of nothing that would be worse than to let women run everything.

“You give good head?” the embattled and married New York congressman asked the woman on March 16, this year.

She responded: “I’ve been told really good...and i love doing it.”

At that point, 46-year-old Weiner declared: “wow a jewish girl who sucks (bleep)! this thing is ready to do damage.”
