Posted on 06/08/2011 4:54:13 PM PDT by Qbert
Politisite is hearing one source close to the Congressman that Weiner will resign by the end of the day or early Thursday.
A Marist poll by Weiners own constituents say he should not resign by a slim majority.
CNN is reporting that Privately colleagues are recommending that he resign quickly.
It was reported that Weiners wife, Huma Abedin, is Pregnant adding to the family stress level. Ironically Huma is with Secretary of State Clinton on Business who can probably help console Adedin during this time.
Democrat colleagues urging Weiner to resign to preserve his own dignity
A Democratic lawmaker familiar with discussions with and about Anthony Weiner tells CNN that Weiners colleagues are telling him this afternoon he should resign to preserve his own dignity.
This Democratic congressman says that this afternoons public call by Democratic Rep. Allyson Schwartz, D-Pennsylvania, for Weiner to resign is part of a new stepped up effort to force Weiner out. The source said the effort includes private and public calls explicitly telling him its time to leave Congress.
There is increased resentment by his colleagues that far from having a press conference where he was going to tell the truth and roll with the flames, the flames are just getting worse and hes dragging us through it. We really thought by now, after the press conference, we would be able to talk about the Republicans Social Security privatization bill and instead we keep talking about Anthony Weiner. And people are getting angrier and more resentful, said the Democratic congressman.
The lawmaker would not speak for the record in order to discuss private conversations, and would not give the names of Weiners colleagues making these private calls.

If the democrats want him out so badly, then we should want him to stick around. An arrogant, wounded sex pervert would be the ultimate albatross around the democrats’ collective political neck in 2012, and having him still representing his district in 2012 would give us a realistic chance of actually winning the district.
If he resigns now he will 100% guaranteed be replaced by another democrat, an unsullied democrat fresh and ready for a fight, and any references to Weiner’s misdeeds will be seen as mean-spirited.
No, we want him to stick around; we want him wounded, not dead.
Gee. Imagine that. An arrogant condescending asshole who wasn't liked.
Even by his fellow 'Rats...
“...to preserve his own dignity...”????
He was waving his wiggins in front of a camera for young girls to (ostensibly) ogle!
He was “Flaunting the Flagpole”!
Or you could say he was “Shaking his Skimpy Shrimpie”!!!
Or “Brandishing the Baloney”!
Or maybe “Putting a Harness on the Helmeted Trouser Trout”!!!
Or, last but not least - “waggling the one-eyed wonder weasel!!!!!”
And ALL on film!!!!!!
He has ZERO dignity left!
Was that mean? Was that harsh? Do I care?
Nah. One less Democrat assh*le is NEVER a bad thing.
Really? Didn't have any effect in the last several election cycles having Barnie Frank around ...
What Weiner did is nothing compared to Ted Kennedy letting a woman die in his car, Kennedy did not resign. He did not resign for 40 years, till death.
What Weiner did is nothing compared to the felonies Bill Clinton committed in an attempt to fix the outcome of a court case in which he was defendant while he was a sitting President, Clinton did not resign.
They both knew Democrat voters would continue to support them no matter what.
Weiner showed his weiner. BIG DEAL! He’s a Democrat! Resign!?
What am I missing here?
Weiner resign? Oh gosh, what are we going to talk about after that?
I don’t relish seeing him go, but, after all, he couldn’t cut the mustard.
I'd call that too little, too late!
Someone suggested Oscar Meyer also....lol !
Im convinced that as soon as the Sorry Wiener story hit, they put a pillow under Humas dress, and will supply her a rent-a-baby in 9 months.....
Ya know...for the MSM cameras.
I am shocked that this weiner fellow supposedly has a shred of dignity...or ever had. Have you followed this political clown’s antics in Congress? What a fool! Mu only hope is that he does not resign. If he does, I hope he gets appointed either as co-Head of the DIMocRAT party or becomes nobama’s co-boy-servant (like reggie bush). What an entertaining oaf.
Rats dont resign in shame because they have no shame.
I predict Weiner will not only hang in there, but that he will be re-elected by the same scum that has always re-elected him. These are Democrats were talking about. When on earth did they ever care about honesty, integrity, and character?
I find the whole thing entertaining, the Democrats cant get out their important political message that ‘the Republicans want you unemployed until you retire and then to throw you off a cliff all to line the pockets of rich and corporations’ with this Weiner (great name!) story dominating the news.
MSNBC Ed Schultz Text poll tonight just asked if the scandal makes it harder for Democrats to get their progressive agenda passed.
that is hilarious
“I dont relish seeing him go, but, after all, he couldnt cut the mustard.”
I just starting reading this thread. I have to ketchup!
He made me cringe even BEFORE Weenie-gate! What a moron....just like the rest of this current bunch trying to run (down) the country!
That's the rats' story and they're sticking to it. Rather than questioning their judgement in who to vote for in the first place -- which is what a normal person would do.
Resign you arrogant/ignorant POS scumbag politician. GET OUT of our life. Devalue the life of your pathetic wife and the lives of your enablers.
So it's not really about Weiner's dignity (all he has is ego anyway), these worthless POS's just want it to go away so they can go back to lying about Republicans. I'm shocked. /s
“So it’s not really about Weiner’s dignity (all he has is ego anyway), these worthless POS’s just want it to go away so they can go back to lying about Republicans. I’m shocked. /s”
You got it.
Those kind, caring Liberals...
“What am I missing here?”
What am *I* missing here? It almost seems like you admire the scumbag...
Cats sure do put up with some s**+. “If I didn’t need another ten hours of sleep, I’d *so* kick this dog’s ass right now.”
Yeah, you have good points.
But I don’t know that there’s anything we can do about it. When the Rats want somebody in their inner circle gone, they’re like the Mafia. The only way Weiner stays I think, is if he alone takes on the entire Dem party... which would definitely add another round of awesome entertainment.
I read that most of Weiner’s staff has quit and are running around the halls of congress trying to get new jobs. That should be a sign for Anthony that things are going to end badly.
Mickey Ds is hiring, but a schmuck like that has no worries about the future in the banana republic (yes, we’re not a banana democracy!)
The big story is that better than 50% of his constituents are fine with it, are we surprised at the decadence of NY....Nooooo. Lets be honest NYC consists of 10% elites, 70 percent idiots that listen to them and 20% Patriot’s.
Waddya bet she has a "miscarriage"?
That horse is out of the barn.
That cat's out of the bag.
Elvis has left the building.
That fruit is out of the loom.
Hilary and a strap-on. Ow! My eyes! My eyes!
He should be put in jail.Sending a penis pic to who knows who,what if kids saw it.
Hide the ash trays.
Hillary wearing a humoungous mansize Rolex ?
I was gonna say... where’s the dignity to preserve?!
Dignity? Preserve? I’ve lived a while, seen much, and have not seen a scumbag like this weenie, who somehow got as high as he did, and that is as high as you can get in this country, isn’t it. What am I, what are we, missing? There is some g_ddamn secret of life’s success that we have all missed, people.
“...I find the whole thing entertaining, ...”
Brother, it’s absolutely hilarious to me.
Watching this unfold, and seeing how this pathetic and useless piece of Democrat worm sh*t dangles on the end of his own rope, well, let’s just say that it renews my optimism that maybe, juuuust maybe, there still IS some justice left in the world.
As it stands, I’m taking a serious amount of pleasure in watching him self-destruct daily.
As I said - one less Democrat assh()le is never a bad thing. And the worse it gets for him, the better I like it.
Yeah...I’m a vindictive pr*ck sometimes...I’ll admit it. And when it comes to stuff like this, I positively REVEL in it.
The word “Dignity” and posting pictures of your schlong on the Net just don’t seem to go together no-how...
I’m just sayin’, is all....
