Enough is Enough, I Say

>> Friday, June 10, 2011

Others may disagree (and I know others will), but I'm tired of Weinergate. I don't want to destroy him; he may very well have done just that all on his own. He has only himself to blame, and he is going to pay for it, one way or the other. We all do, in the end.

I do-- but then I don't --feel sorry for Rep Weiner. He's been a caustic nasty little man, and in the eyes of some he deserves everything he's getting and more. And considering what's he's done, he DOES deserve it. I feel sorry for the man because of his name. EVERY news agency has taken pot shots at his name, and it's just juvenile. I'm tired of it. I don't want to be a part of destroying someone who appears to have royally screwed himself.

Should he resign? For what? Because he lied to the American people? Every politician lies to the American people to one extent or the other. A short while ago a republican resigned simply for a photo of his bare chest he sent out over, what was it? Craigslist? that's not near as bad as emailing photos of your namesake all over the world-- and if Rep Weiner was nearly as savvy as he thought he was, he'd have known that nothing on the internet ever goes away-- unless government kills it, and even then! Should we expect certain standards of the men who represent us? Sure! But should we expect them to be perfect? Never make mistakes? Are some mistakes too great to allow a man or woman to continue in their jobs? Most certainly. But if there is no room for forgiveness, or understanding, then we become worse than the leftist media currently on course to destroy what's left of this man.

Rep Rangel is still in office, and what he did was unarguably a crime. Weiner? Questions remain. And even at that, does exposing oneself in public carry a worse penalty than tax evasion? In terms of law and penalty? I don't think so. In terms of personal dishonor? Who's to say? Let Weiner's constituents deal with him. If they want him to stay in office, and later achieve reelection, that's their business. If they want him, they can have him. There are too many other dire happenings in American politics that require our undivided attention than the distraction of Rep Weiner's... [e-hem.]

I'm not going to stoop to the level of media who, seeing blood in the water, attacks without mercy, or seeing no blood but rather an easy kill, swarm in to destroy someone simply because they don't like her... namely, Gov. Palin. The Left is insane in its hatred and campaign of destruction leveled against Sarah Palin, among others. That they're turning on Rep Weiner only proves that some species are not above eating their own. But I've never seen the Right go to the extremes the Left has in attempting to destroy a political opponent.

There is enough evil happening in our government-- Today! Right now! --more in need of our rapt attention than the public dismantling of a man's name, family, career, etc. Mr Weiner has done this to himself, but we should not be eager to heap coals on his head. The Left is doing what they do best in that regard. Let them have it.

At best he serves as living reminder that Democrats have no moral compass and hold other to higher standards than themselves. Remember Foley was run for non-graphical text messages.

Oh I don't think it's nearly enough. We need to hold Wiener to the same standards Democrats hold Republicans.

We Conservatives do, anyway. Because if we don't, the Democrats damn sure won't.

Pelosi has said there will be an investigation to see if he broke any house rules. That's a laugh. He will never be punished. He will never be held accountable. Democrats will not do anything more than censure him, which is even less than the proverbial slap on the wrist, and then he will continue to do everything in his considerable power to destroy this country. Meanwhile the other Democrats who are engaging in extra-marital affairs and all sorts of immoral indecent things will be empowered by Winer getting away with his moral degradation.

They already believe they are above the standards of decency and morality. This will undoubtedly strengthen that belief.

Sen. Ensign scandal came to light in 2009 and the Republican party leadership never requested his resignation. He actually committed adultery. He also paid a bribe to coverup the scandal.

Sen. Vitter was identified as having hired prostitutes in 2007. The Republican party never asked for his resignation, didn't find a candidate to challenge him in the primary and accepted him in their party upon his reelection.

Should I keep going. Republican politicians no longer have a claim to the slogan "Family values!"

The way you guys ignore Wiener and still talk about Republicans shows you're just a party tool.

Great comeback, EL!

If i was a party tool then I'd be with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid calling for Weiner's resignation. I think he should serve the remainder of his term and be answerable to his constituents for what was actually not a criminal offense.

Flirting by sexting was an immoral offense if his wife didn't know and approve...but 100% legal. And even on the morality scale where do his actions fall compared to having two extra-marital affairs (Newt Gingrich (still not repudiated by Republicans)) or of course the many troubled relationships of Rudy Giuliani.

Edwin may be the party tool in this conversation.

Mark, I think you're beginning to see that Democrats are indeed beginning to call for this man's resignation. Word out this morning is that Weiner is weighing the possibility of resignation.

I don't want to pile onto the Weiner debacle because I don't want to stoop to the Left's level. Besides which, I honestly feel sorry for the man... because his name is such an unfortunate lightning rod for ridicule.

Weiner is becoming an embarrassment to the democrat party. If his name were anything other than "Weiner" the Left might just ignore this, but... sadly, for Anthony Weiner, that's what his name is, and the Left wants attention drawn to other things besides the unfortunate double entendre every time the man's name is uttered.

Personally, I think he's the worst kind of democrat (and no, I'm not going to qualify that), but let democrats deal with it. And if they don't, Republicans will have all the fodder they need to paint the Left as they choose between now and November 2012. And don't think the Democrat establishment doesn't understand this.

This is a win/win, for the Right, Mark: stay above the fray, and still reap the profits the unfortunate morality of the left and this pathetic little man projects.


And since when has the Left EVER been concerned about the morality of extra-marital affairs? They bent over backward to defend President Clinton.

The left is concerned about Newt's extra-marital affairs, but sees nothing morally outrageous about their campaign to destroy Sarah Palin, or their call to arms to search emails for the express purpose and hope of finding dirt that will allow them to FINALLY destroy her?

The only "tools" I see are those fools on the Left who make excuses for their party members by pointing fingers at the opposition party's members, while engaging in the most blatantly immoral campaign of personal destruction known in modern American-media history.
