Erections have consequences
New York Post ^ | 6/6/11 | Editor

Posted on 06/06/2011 8:46:41 PM PDT by SmithL

Let us declare with certitude the obvious: Rep. Anthony Weiner has disgraced his office, and himself, and he needs to quit.

Never mind that he went before the TV cameras yesterday, cried on cue and assumed "responsibility" for a litany of offenses to common decency -- including sending lewd messages and revealing photos to young women on Twitter, and then lying about it.

Repeatedly and egregiously.

But there is a difference between taking "responsibility" for what one has done, and accepting the full consequences of those actions -- which in Weiner's case would require his resignation.

Would not want to be in his house.

He may not want to be either. He should just resign and stop the farce already - since they have a worse picture.

An old Chinese Gentleman goes to the Optometrist because everything looks a little fuzzy.

The Optometrist examines him and says, I have some bad news, it looks like you have Cataracts.

The old Chinese Gentlemen gets really upset and yells at the Optometrist, I don't have a Cadarac, I have a Rincoln!

I would not go that far and Im sure when what ive read about the rest to come out about him ill have a change of heart. He is definately dumb as rocks. Too stupid to be in office. I guess I just found it refreshing that instead of doing a maxine waters routine he just came out and said, you got me, I lied, I make no excuses, blame noone. That does not excuse what he did. You are right on that point

Weiner declared himself a victim and allowed Andrew Breitbart to be accused of hacking the account when he knew Breitbart was innocent. Weiner is NOT a victim.

I knew that surprisingly heterosexual Congressman Anthony “Ballpark Frank” Weiner would not resign.

Chris Lee was a sucker to do so. Privately I’m sure Weiner laughed at him as continued to gross out college girls.

Watch, he’ll be Mayor now. He’ll get the Bill Clinton treatment.

Weiner has disrespected his Muslim WINO (wife in name only), Huma Abedin-Weiner. The only way to reclaim her respect is to call down a holy jihad on rascally Weiner’s Willard.

Decapitate Willard, divorce Anthony, and reclaim your honor, Huma. Hillary's loving embrace awaits you.

He is definately dumb as rocks. Too stupid to be in office.

I guess I disagree completely. This scandal does not prove that Weiner is stupid any more than the Monica Lewinski scandal proved that Bill Clinton was stupid. In both cases, what was revealed was a serious character flaw, not stupidity.

I guess I just found it refreshing that instead of doing a maxine waters routine he just came out and said, you got me,

That is not what happened. He spent the past week babbling about how his accounts had been hacked, how he had to go back to work for the people, how this was just a prank not worth pursuing legally, and so on. He lied incessantly to protect himself, knowing that an investigation would reveal that he sent the photo. He only confessed after his story was broken by new witnesses and a bunch of new photos. Up until he confessed, Weiner was apparently quite happy to see Andrew Breitbart falsely accused of hacking his online accounts.

Tony Weiner is about as refreshing as a swim in a sewer.

weiner WILL resign. unless ww3 or the equivalent starts, he will resign, this is a snow ball down a mountain situation. The story is growing bigger by the minute.

I agree he'll resign - he's become a laughingstock and it will be impossible for him to appear in public.

Weiner’s Firm Position Melts After Exposure.

After yesterdays presser I wonder if the lump in Tony's throat was as big as the lump in his shorts.

“I doubt Weiner will resign. Unless the RATS beat him up really bad. The man is an arrogant ass with a pretty good dose of narcissism. He is indecent. A decent man would have already resigned.”

All true. If democrat politicians were decent, would Barney Frank still hold office after it was proven that he ran a male prostition ring out of his home? The narcissism you mention prohibits them from believing that anything should thwart their pathetic careers.

The only “bossy” people I see around here these days are those who insist — INSIST — that everyone must fall unquestioningly at the feet of the saintly Sarah Palin, who can do no wrong, and who is not subject to the common human weaknesses of us mere mortal. Fail to do so, and you are subject to bullying and insults worthy of any schoolyard kid...

I think it beats "Headless Body Found in Topless Bar."

If he is lucky, he is only sleeping on the sofa. Would not want to be in his house...

Best of the Web speculated that might be why he didn't resign...who would believe the usual explanation that he wanted to "spend more time with family?"

Kennedy killed the woman he was boinking - he didn’t resign.

And Marilyn Monroe? Killed herself. Kennedy didn’t resign.

Clinton was doin’ many - and trashing them so they couldn’t object. And lied about it - under oath. Dems and the MSM thought of him
