Reid: 'can't defend' Weiner
Pagan,He didn't resign, he finished his term and then went off to
have his romantic trysts without having to have state troopers know where he
was.You are correct though, he cheated on his wife and still didn't
resign, and yet many of the same Republican supporters are calling for Weiner to
@ 1148 Oh if I could just be as mature a you.(sarcasm intended) Nice job on
putting words in my mouth and ignoring what I really said. Another mature tactic
of the Left. And how did we get caught up in your abhorrent, loathing, fixation
with Sarah Palin? Can't get her off your mind? What does it have to do with this
subject? Can't stop thinking about her? Please provide the precise quote, and
source for the LONG list she had hoped to accomplish, and the quote where I said
it was alright for her to quit. The haters have punished her for months, over
her quitting, so don't say she hasn't been "roasted". Or are you just
looking for a Republican who said something bad about her?
"Don't forget Mark Sanford. Still Republican Gov. of SC after 'Hiking the
Apalachan Trail' and cheating on his wife."That would be news
to Nikki Haley.
@10:48Yes, the world isn't fair. Yes, some people get away with
more than others. It's called life. Time to act like an adult and realize
that.And I love how you perfectly prove the double standard with
Palin. She quit, bottom line. Any other person does the same thing, walk out
on their job after feeding us a long list of what they hoped to accomplish, and
they get roasted. So thank you for proving my point.
'FYI-Mark Sanford is no longer the governor of South Carolina. The SC governor
is Nikki Haley.' - LoveLife | 11:39 a.m. June 8, 2011 I apologize.
I was under the impression, incorrectly, that Mark Sanford was still Gov. of
SC. Your right Lovelife, he is not. He DID cheat on his wife, and
@Pagan:"Don't forget Mark Sanford. Still Republican Gov. of
SC..."FYI-Mark Sanford is no longer the governor of South
Carolina. The SC governor is Nikki Haley.
Once he's gone, Weiner's staff will be in short demand!
I'm not sure which relationship theory Weiner lends credence to: big nose, big
feet, low intelligence or all of the above. I hope the Democratic party will
throw the bum out.
@ 10:27 So in other words, like most leftists, your a fan or an acceptor of
double standards. Yes I know this isn't EXACTLY the same issue and circumstance
of Clinton, but why not support the guy?As for Palin, I'm not sure
either you or I could really say or know why she quit. I will certainly allow
you and most Palin haters to believe your theory, and you might even be right. I
don't support the idea of her leaving that position, before her term ended,
without a very good reason, and I haven't seen a very good reason. I might
suggest there is more to it then meets the eye. I might even suggest an
additional idea. Maybe she was being noble. Maybe she was really saving her
state and constituents some of their valuable time and money, because of all the
mindless, half-baked court claims being filed against her, by your fellow
haters. It was still very distracting for her, when the election was long over,
and the haters still couldn't accept winning the election - as good enough.

@HaHaHaHaMany things are different/have changed between the two.First, this is a relatively unknown Congressman, compared to the
President. Much easier to cut loose.Second, the country is facing a
difficult run, compared to the end of one of the more successful Presidency's in
recent history.Just as winning gets athletes a lot of leway, same
goes for politics. If your'e an important figure on either side, you get more
margin for error. If you've been successful, the margin gets even greater.
Even if you're just a big name on the scene, you get more room for error.Look at Palin on the conservative side. If a less known Governor had
walked out on the job to pursue money, but continued to try and be a focal point
of the Republican party, they would get killed for quitting. But because the
extreme right loves Palin, they make excuses for, or just don't talk about, her
failure to finish even 1 term.
Rep. Weiner should tender his resignation that is contingent on Republican
Senator David Vitter resigning from his Senate seat for hiring a prostitute
(which is illegal) and breaking his marriage vows by having sexual intercorse
with the prostitute.His resignation should also be contingent on the
resignation os Republican Senator Tom Colburn who aided in making payments to
the husband of a staff member from Senator John Ensign's office (with whom
Ensign had an affair). Paying campaign money to cover up an affair is exactly
what John Edwards was recently indicted for so with Coburn aiding in the
payments, he should also resign.So, once the Republicans are clean
(remember the words - let he who is without sin cast the first stone), then they
should feel free to call for Rep Weiner to step down. Until then, it is just
I don't understand this. All Dem's, leftists, Libs and their slobbering pop
culture media hacks, came to the defense of Bill Clinton, when he was sharing
his "assets" with women other then his wife. He didn't break the law,
until he tried to lie and cover it up, just like Mr. Wiener. Whats changed?
Whats the difference now? Poor Mr. Wiener, Clinton's escapades were viewed and
held up as resume enhancements, while Wiener gets the cold shoulder. Poor guy!
@ute alumni: it just shows how far our society has fallen when people push all
morals and values under the rug.
yet a poll shows a majority of New Yorkers don't think he should resign......
What does it take nowadays
