What are your standards for that?

CBW is a big (Anthony) Weiner fan, so I know how much he values honor and integrity.

link?

Really, you going to try to run from supporting Weiner?  Okeedokee...


I'm his supporter, and I wasn't hurt. I'd be more hurt if he voted with the conservatives in their efforts to bust unions, dismantle the middle class, and eliminate the tax burden for billionaires. Since he doesn't do those things, his actions haven't hurt me. His wife and family can deal with this on their own. They don't need me, or you for that matter, to be their advocate. He broke no laws. This is a non issue as far as I'm concerned.


I expect them to do the job I sent them there to do. I'm not the morality police, and neither are you. I'm not looking to elect Dudley Doo-Right. I'm looking to elect people who will legislate on my behalf. If he didn't break any laws, I fail to see how this is anything more than a personal indiscretion.

If there was a candidate that I knew would repeal Gramm-Leach-Bliley, NAFTA, GATT, end tax loopholes for companies that offshore, raise the top end tax rate, and implement a public insurance option, I could care less if he/she was a former stripper/gay prostitute that was addicted to midget porn, I'd vote for them.

Where does it suggest I am a Weiner fan, and not merely someone who supports a politician that shares my political ideology regardless of their personal indiscretions? I think my position was pretty clear, and pretty clearly out of the box that you are trying to put them in.

You cannot be serious.  I mean, I've seen liberals run from their hypocrisy before, but you cannot be serious.

I'm dead serious, and there's nothing hypocritical about it. You posted three quotes of mine in that thread, and I didn't even mention Weiner in two of them. The larger point I was making is that there is a difference between doing something illegal and/or unethical in your role as a congressman, and cyber-cheating on your wife. You stated that I was a "fan" of Weiner's. I am no such thing, and you know you have no leg to stand on with those quotes, which is why you quickly pivoted on the word "fan" and changed it to "supporting".

Sorry, I have no bone in this particular dog fight but I have to join the chorus that you are taking splitting hairs to a completely new level. You would be far better off in saying that might be what it sounded like but it is not what I meant.

And, with Stephanie Cutter as your campaign spokesperson, I really do not think "lying" is either an issue or a road you want to go down.

You cannot be serious.  It isn't possible for you to be serious about this.

And Weiner lied and lied and lied and lied about his actions, including his infamous, indignant press conference on the matter.  You backed him and his lying the entire way.  You're a hypocrite.

The bottom line is that my support for Weiner was rooted in the fact that the guy did his job well and represented the interests of his constituency. His personal indiscretions are his own demons, but had nothing to do with his job performance. If you think he's the only civil servant to ever cheat on his wife or inappropriately flirt with a woman than I have a bridge in Brooklyn you might be interested in.

Biggs attempt to tie Weiner into this discussion is bogus on two fronts. The first one being that I am not a "fan" of his. What I am a fan of is not allowing feigned, partisan driven "morality" to run otherwise law-abiding civil servants from their elected offices. The second front being the fact that there is a clear and obvious difference between a public official lying about a personal indiscretion and one lying about his or her own policies and how they will affect the electorate. One has nothing to do with the job you are being elected to do, the other has everything to do with the job you are being elected to do.

And, with Stephanie Cutter as your campaign spokesperson, I really do not think "lying" is either an issue or a road you want to go down.

When Obama lies 27 times in a 38 minute speech, then maybe you'll be onto something.

Jon Stewart and Rachel Maddow are unwatchable liberal dbags, IMO.

They are the Democrats answer to Rush, Bill O'Rielly, etc..

Im cool with Stewart at times....the worst though is "The Ed show", with Ed Schultz. While I do agree with some of his points, he is the most bitter and pissed off commentator I have ever seen. He is very hard to watch.

Obama and Ed are soul-mates

He reminds me of Chris Broussard and Lebron

Comical speech by Pres Clinton yesterday......

Former President Bill Clinton has been to Las Vegas before, but now it means even more. With less than 30 days until the election, he wasted no time bringing out the swords in this battleground state.

"Here's old, moderate Mitt," he said, remarking about last week's debate. "Where have you been, boy? I missed you these last two years."
