Anthony Weiner’s sexual behavior may have underlying issues (No, really? REALLY?!?)
The Washington Post ^ | 7/24/2013 | Lena H. Sun and Meeri Kim

Posted on 07/24/2013 10:06:16 PM PDT by Yossarian

The lewd behavior that New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner engaged in suggests he is struggling with more than bad behavior and could be dealing with a variety of issues driving his problematic sexual behavior, experts said.

But doctors, clinical psychologists and sex therapists differ on the role of biology, as well as issues such as anxiety, depression and insecurity.

Fred Berlin, director of the Sexual Behaviors Consultation Unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital, said many of his patients exhibit behavior similar to Weiner’s, although he and other experts cautioned that they could not speak to the former congressman’s specific situation.

“It’s driven behavior,” said Berlin, a psychiatrist who has been treating patients for more than 30 years. “People are feeling they are pushed to act a certain way even though their intellect and their conscience may be telling them otherwise.”

They are lazy and worship Ba’al. It is easier to sell your soul for power, wealth, esp. in politics-— than be a hard-working, honest, good, decent human being and still get ahead......As Machiavelli would say-—nice guys don’t gain power. It is really very rare.....that is why corruption is inevitable in bureaucracies.

He is not very attractive and he’s little for a guy so he may have major inferiority complex -—doesn’t have a lot going for him that would make fame and power easy—he would have to cheat, beg, sell his soul for money-—get on his knees to the money bags who are evil as sin.

Men—as you describe-—have no character, which is created in the formative years by good parents-—a mother and father and Judeo-Christian ethics.

Weiner's problem isn't that he's a pervert; it's that he's the wrong kind of pervert. All he has to do is sext a few pics to some well-placed NY homos and he'd win the election in a landslide.

New York deserves to be the place where Wiener shows off his inadequacies.

I don’t think he has club feet.

They used to say that the ideal German was thin like Hermann Goering, tall like Josef Gobels, and blond like Adolf Hitler.

A. Weiner was born this way, and needs to be accepted for his sexual orientation. Acceptance must be without judgement, both from his wife and the public. A. Weiner's sexual orientation was formed genetically, so A. Weiner can't be judged or stereotyped - such behavior would be A. WeinerPhobic, and hateful to A. Weiner's sexual orientation.

Do we know that A. Weiner made a deal with Huma in which Human can be involved with Hillary's carpet ? No, such a munching trade has not been made public - so how can we know exactly why Huma has stood by A. Weiner during his hard decision to continue his sexual orientation as a serial mobile phone flasher and phone sex addict with strangers?

New York deserves A. Weiner, and should not judge A. Weiner's sexual orientation. Huma should be encouraged to come out of the closet, if she is in fact involved with Hillary. If not, Huma should continue to support A. Weiner anyway.

LOL! Good one.

And Goering said if Berlin was ever bombed, he change his name to a Jewish name.

I didn’t know Goebbels had club feet.

Weiner amuses himself while Huma has her nose in Hillary’s business? I think you you have come up with the only logical explanation as to how Anthony and Huma have been able to stay married.

Meyer....Goering said he would change his name to Meyer.

Goering’s father was governor general of German South West Africa colony.

Per Wikipedia:
Göring’s first action was to gain a ‘protection treaty’ with the leading Herero chief, Maharero. The treaty of protection wasn’t worth the paper it was written on, as Göring was in no position to offer assistance. Repeated, successful armed attacks by the Nama clan of Hendrik Witbooi proved the point. The treaty was torn up a few years later anyway by Mahrero, who also expelled Göring from Hereroland: the behaviour of the Germans had become too much and, worst of all, Göring had—perhaps unwittingly—extended his house on top of a Herero ancestral graveyard. The gold rush was a hoax, however, for the purported gold deposits were nothing apart from the remains of gold pieces fired at a rock face. The identity of the hoaxer remains a mystery, but suspicion falls on Göring making a last-ditch, desperate attempt to bring investment into the protectorate, and thus save his failing mission.

I think Weiner should beat it.

The word is, however, that he is going to stick it out.

As in the Vince Foster case; only Hillary carpet fibers will tell the whole story.

Huma, Got Hillary Carpet 'tween those big teeth ? nasty!


The next question all New York Voters will be asking themselves is;
If we find A. Weiner was also genetically born a Sextingphile; will Huma also forgive A. Weiner's extended genetic sexual orientation?

Will A. Weiner end up owning a pubic hair carpet store in San Francisco under a new name after a massive 20 hour nose job surgery on the witness protection program?

Do victims of A. Weiner's promiscuous addicitve Sexting actually feel physical pain when viewing the sheer size of A. Weiner's nose?

Can A. Weiner's genetic sexting addition sexual orientation make A. Weiner an unfit A. Mayor Weiner?

Has anyone thought about how the practice (common in muslim countries) of female circumcision may have affected Weiner’s marriage? I’ve also heard it called genital mutilation and it supposedly causes a woman to be unable to achieve orgasm.

Weiner did not marry until he was 46 years old. That should be the first clue that he is “different.” If a man isn’t married by the age of 40, there is a high probability he has developed personality traits that are contrary to a healthy marriage, and habits that are very difficult to break.

You may be on to something...The Weiner presser July 23 was held at the NYC Gay Men's Health Crisis Center.

‘I never understood why Huma married him.’

“If he had self-respect (which he does not) he would drop out of the race. Voters should just brush him aside.”

Unless I am mistaken, last I heard (a day or so ago) he was leading in the polls to become the new mayor of the big apple.

IOW, it’s not his fault his ding a ling is all over internet. It’s the disease’s fault. It’s the syndrone’s fault. See, his wife is standing by her man through all this. Next he’ll be in a 12 step program and demanding we all cheer his bravery through his struggles.

The whole triangle is a sick mess. He is married to a Mooselimb who is not likely homosexual but has to be to service Hillary for power. Hillary is a homosexual not by choice but to fulfill her lack of worth from a useless husband. Weiner is just the result of a perverted circle jerk.

Actually, Nicollo Machiavelli did believe nice guys could gain power.

His personal political theory was based on an idealization of Cicero. It was probably unworkable.

The view you are referencing comes from In Principia or On Principalities, known in the west as The Prince. That work details not Machiavelli's own precepts but those of Cesar Borgia, the fifteenth century warlord son of Pope Alexander XI and brother of Lucrezia Borgia.

No. Sane and rational people do not need to accept the trappings of mental illness.

FYI...it was Pope Alexander VI. The Showtime series The Borgias portrays many contacts between Cesar Borgia and Machiavelli. They hatched more than a few plots together.
