NYC Must Look At Other Options

July 29, 2013

It says something about the American political system that Anthony Weiner thought a political comeback was a good idea in the first place....

irony- your reading comprehension is about as accurate as almost all of your talking points. The key word in my comment that you conveniently overlooked or disregarded was "usually". And if the Republican Party had put up a different and viable candidate against Sanford before the election, I don't think he would have been elected. Same goes for the Democrats, if they had put up a good "centrist" candidate instead of someone whose only qualification for office was the fact that she's the sister of Stephen Colbert, Sanford quite possibly wouldn't have had enough support to get elected.

Although I'd relish the fun of a mayor weiner, frankly I don't think he cuts the mustard.

Just wanted to ketchup with some last weiner fun before he flames out and admits he's finally done, er overdone.

Who was on the other end of the telephone call when Clinton was at his desk merrily Lewinskying? Wasn't it a foreign dignitary of some sort? And that gets a pass because it's personal sexual behavior not anything to do with his leadership? He lied under oath. Remember?

Yes irony, why Ben Franklin? Why not Clinton, Jack and Ted Kennedy, Roberts, or the other sleazy boys? Just interested in how you were bumb enough to bring up Ben Franklin?

"with Franklin actually being far, far worse than Weiner could ever conceive of doing immorally with regard to women"

LOL if you think Old Ben was worse that Weiner, you are the fool. And WHO CARES what someone did 225 years ago?

So, Mr OnehandclappingIrony - Was Bill Clinton worse that Ben Franklin, or worse than Weiner?

Like I said earlier, pull up your pants, put the I phone away and stop sexting behind your partners back.

I do find it hilarious Seadog dismisses the comparison to Ben Franklin which is 100% valid (with Franklin actually being far, far worse than Weiner could ever conceive of doing immorally with regard to women) and conjures up some comparison with Bob Filner, who is being accused of FORCEFULLY SEXUALLY HARASSING women.

You're a complete and utter fool. You've proven that so much, the only person who doesn't realize it is you. Which is the irony, you are a fool because you don't know you're a fool.

Irony - I call this SPEAKING OUT:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein on CNN's “State of the Union” was equally critical of San Diego Mayor Bob Filner. "I don't think that somebody WHO IS LACKING A MAORAL COMPASS really sets a role model or really will provide the kind of leadership that San Diegans want," she said"

I also suggest, Seadog, you reevaluate your use of the term "speaking out". None of those examples "spoke out" about anything. They merely evaluated Weiner on objective grounds - something that is wayyyy over your head. Once again, stick to your day job.

50sIQ4ever - please point out where it says what you claim it says.

"Sanford DID resign as govenor of SC and than ran and WON for a different position."

The daft-nature of the squirming is appalling. FedUp clearly states the GOP is superior because if a candidate did what Weiner did, he would resign, NOT run again, and the electorate wouldn't elect him anyways because they have "moral" qualities.

Seriously, you all need to stick to your day jobs. Assuming you have one. It is actually sad how blind you are to even your own words.

Irony - even the Dems are speaking out.

On Sunday's “Meet the Press,” David Axelrod, former senior adviser to President Obama, said of Weiner, "He is not going to be the next mayor of New York, he is wasting time and space."

Sen. Dianne Feinstein on CNN's “State of the Union” was equally critical of San Diego Mayor Bob Filner. "I don't think that somebody who is lacking a moral compass really sets a role model or really will provide the kind of leadership that San Diegans want," she said.

That combined criticism for three of the party's heavy hitters represents a sea change from what some believe is a scandal double-standard.

I would derive some sort of satisfaction out of proving you wrong but it is negated by your blind belief that what you say is true on a continual basis even in the face of truth.

"How any fail to see instead insane behavior (repeated mistakes), narcissistic behavior, blatant lies, incredible lack of control, poor decision making, etc. is beyond me..."

Which is why we should have fired Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson as well for their adultery. Don't you agree?

I am humored how I have to be insistent to make the point to you that think like children.

"Neither party has a monopoly on virtue."

The rest of your pointless blubbery wasn't needed. The comment should have ended here.

Blinding yourself to the recent sexual scandals that exist in the GOP party is a testament to the nature of how some use faulty discourse in order to persuade fools.

It apparently hurts Seadog's feelings to use the same standard across the board. That counters his agenda.

Irony - Ben Franklin, seriously???? Now I know you're on something. Why not bring up George Washington, he had slaves and probably slept with a few. How about TEDDY KENNEDY - he even killed one - no punishment though, since he was a Democrat.

Neither party has a monopoly on virtue. The difference is that Republicans usually resign or are not re-elected but Democrats invariably fail to resign due to the lower standards they and their supporters hold themselves to in almost every instance. They know that bluffing it out or an insincere apology is all that is needed.

Odd how some focus strictly on the sexual part and give it a pass based on reasoning that it is personal & irrelevant to the job. How any fail to see instead insane behavior (repeated mistakes), narcissistic behavior, blatant lies, incredible lack of control, poor decision making, etc. is beyond me... and those traits may somehow have an impact on his performance as oscar mayor weiner.

I wasn't implying that it is only a democrat problem. Lord knows there are enough scumbags serving in Congress from both sides. I was implying that mostly it is the liberal left who see no problem with it. The liberal left thinks pretty much anything is ok as long as it "feels good". Many of you have talked about the moral right but you notice never about the moral left. Anthony (I'll send you a photo of it ) weiner is just one example of that left wing.

"Even I am surprised you think it abnormal and reprehensible to keep marriage vows. You're even more ignorant than I thought."

ironyoozesfromyouryap. Can you point out where I stated it was "abnormal" or "reprehensible"? Let's see you do some quick research. Also, what do you think of Ben Franklin? You must loathe him as well.

For some of you numb to objective thought, let us bring forth another character in the American history. By Seadog's definition, he is a dirty scoundrel. His name? Benjamin Franklin.

Oh, wonderful Benjamin. Had a illegitimate son to a mistress, brought it home for his wife to take care of. He was Anthony Weiner but with the part where he actually did decades worth of things. For an extra boost to your holier-than-thou attitude, make sure to read, "Advice to a Young Man on the Choice of a Mistress". You'll love it.
