    DEMOCRAT Anthony Weiner Admits to sending Photo's and other inappropriate behavior. Lets see all the far left who believed him and was sticking up for this fool come clean! Lets see how you far lefties spin this. The man is a dog and should resign! Could not have happened to a better big mouth a$$hole.

      I know. Isn't it something how liberals always make up excuses for their lying, corrupt politicians and bring up someone else to take attention off of their filthy selves? As if that excuses or lessens the evil they've done. Amazing.

      This jerk Weiner, says he's not resigning? He might be changing that tune soon, because there are more pictures out there and they are way, worse. He doesn't know if any of the women who got those pictures were under-age or not. There might be women coming out of the woodwork from all over. This guy is so stupid. What a pervert.

      Can I assume you're not an admirer of Newt Gingrich and that you've never viewed or forwarded anything pornographic on the Internet? Seems to me the media is overdoing the significance a bit. And, the biggest axxhole in the story is Breitbart. It will be interesting to see what his role in the affair actually was. I watched his performance at Wiener's press conference yesterday. He's the most obnoxious, evil person I've seen in a long time.

          Agreed. Gingrich is a truly evil man. Weiner was foolish but apparently not criminal or evil. Judging from emails I get from friends and from what I've read about the huge amount of porn traffic on the Internet most of us including myself aren't in a position to cast the first stone.

            True, but I don't think viewing porn is as bad as sending pics of yourself to people - when you're married. I wouldn't be upset to find hubby viewing porn, but if he sent pics of himself to some woman, I might pull a Bobbitt!! lol

            I'm sorry and not trying to be mean, but why did he think women would want to view him?? I know that 99.9% of people on earth wouldn't want to see my unclothed bod, and I wouldn't want to see his, either. Heck, I just want to feed him and put some meat on those bones! No pun intended.

              The answer might depend on their online conversation leading up to the emailed images. I doubt that Weiner just started off sending pics to random women out of the blue. There must have been some conversation leading up to the sending of the photo. The ladies conceivably gave some indication that they were receptive. Or they also may have sent him naughty pics. We don't know all the facts. I'm not condoning his behavior. I just don't think he should be crucified based on what we know now.

                I don't want to crucify him. I'm a lot more concerned about the last report on the economy. I think we all tend to get too bogged down in things like "weinergate" and "palingate." And I include myself in that. Seriously, we have a lot bigger problems than weiners. Pun intended. I do, however, feel bad for his wife.

            REPUBLICANS have to resign, because they're always blustering about how perfect they are.

    Just as a wee bit of a side note, CEO's and other big time business men & women have illicit affairs all too often {blatant or otherwise} and while people shake their heads they look at their success and shrug it off.
    Politicians {notorious for failing the people regarding law making and enforcement} get caught with their pants down and everybody calls for their resignation.  Not because of their poor ability to rule for the people but because they were "immoral".
    Does anybody else see this as hypocritical or is it just me?

      As far as I know, Weiner is not planning on running for president.

      I agree with you, I know what she says is entertaining but I'd rather they just ignore Palin.

      This whole argument is ridiculous...this has nothing to do with what party anyone belongs to. People are people and you find sleazy ones everywhere...

      I also agree that what they do in their private life is none of my business. If they commit a crime in office then I say they should step down. Sending pictures to women on the Internet is stupid and sleazy but it's not corruption.

      It's funny you say that liberals always try to deflect attention wbfree. Every single time anyone on this forum criticizes Palin or Bush or any other Republican, someone will bring up Bill Clinton or Carter or Obama. No one is exempt.

    I have trouble keeping a straight face just thinking about this.

    So what if Weiner likes to sext pics of his weiner over the internet. He should have just fessed up and admitted he's nothing more than a horndog. But with all the problems in the country these days, does anyone really care that he's sexting? A million other people are doing the exact same thing. The only reason anyone even gives a dang is because he's an obnoxious, loud mouth, and it probably feels really good to take him down a few notches.

    The more serious issue here is his dishonesty in trying to cover it up. What else is he not up front about? The man just plain lied to everyone. Bad idea. How can anyone ever take this man seriously again, or trust anything he says?

      I don't even really blame someone like that for lying about it (because - really - what a stupid thing for anyone to do).  The thing that gets someone like that "points off" in my book is that they're in office.  It doesn't take a "big genius" to figure out that sending pictures electronically isn't the most brilliant thing to do, and is likely to result in someone's at least telling one did it.  And yet these clowns do this stupid stuff and then try to pretend they didn't. 

      I mean, either do the stupid stuff and just own up; or else don't do stupid stuff and you won't have to worry about anyone finding anything out and making a laughing stock out of you (at best).  So, to me, someone who can't or won't grasp that simple concept of either do what you want and own up, or don't do stupid stuff at all; is either too much of a little idiot to be having a say in office, or else is so much of narcissist he thinks he can do stupid stuff and that everyone else is too stupid not to be fooled by his lies. 

      So, basically, I don't see it as being about what he did or even about his lying about it.  It's about his showing a number of signs that he's yet one more clown who ought to resign (regardless of his party).

      Very true.
      In the Internet age it's a whole lot easier to get caught -- either people seeing you out or doing something stupid like Weiner because you don't really understand the power of the technology.
      The behavior is as old as man (and woman).
      But JKF was probably the last president who could get away with such indiscretions.


      But in the grand scheme of things, if my political representative has to screw around, I'd rather he did it with his own "weiner" than with taxpayer money! smile

    In response to earlier post by Habee:
    The timing of Weinergate overlapped with Palin's rewrite of Ameican History.
    The comedians were having a field day with the weiner jokes and talking about what a good sport Rep. Weiner is.
    Then the tone switched.
    Palin's initiall gaffe was extended by her public announcement that she knows her American history and Revere DID warn the Britsh. And her apologists screaming to change Wikipedia to concur with her version (this I find REALLY SCARY).
    Meantime, Weiner had his press conference.
    It's still getting play. I'm watching NBC right now.
    Weinergate is a top story. Nothing on Palin today.

        MM anything Sarah Palin does has no effect on yours and my daily lives. Weeniedog is an elected official , Palin is not. Weeniedog votes on bills that effect all Americans, Palin does not. And she has not even announced a candidacy for office. Weeniedog has proven and even admitted that he is a liar. Palin just makes verbal faux pas that end up with the cackling hens on " The View ". Bottom line Palin doesn't matter. Weeniedog does. Because he has proven himself to be a liar and without integrity. Big difference

          Lying about an embarrassing sexual indiscretion is normal human behavior.

            But we are supposed to hold congressmen to a higher standard. But I guess I should not be surprised since ,Pelosi, Rangel and Bawney Frank are still there. And Wasserman Schultz is no bargain either.
