    Pelosi declines to call for Weiner's resignation

    Link

    Fri Jun 10, 7:07 pm ET
    WASHINGTON Amid increasing calls for Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi says the decision should be up to the congressman and his New York constituents.
    The former speaker said in San Francisco that she believes the decision should be made by "the individual member" and the people in his district.
    Weiner, a seven-term Democrat, has admitted sending sexually explicit photos and messages over the Internet to a half dozen women over the past three years. Pelosi has asked the House Ethics Committee to investigate whether Weiner used any government resources.
    Is there any question, any question whatsoever, that Pelosi is a hypocrite?

    Pelosi hasn't seen a weiner since she crawled out of one. She's probably thankful.

    Have I protected them, or said they shouldn't go?

    Re: Pelosi declines to call for Weiner's resignation

    Hmmm... well technically she would be a hypocrite if she called for the resignations of other democrats but not this one. If she has left it up to them each time, then she is pretty uniform in her approach.

    Also, Weiner didn't break the law, he just did something embarrassing. Considering that, if his constituents don't like him they can have him recalled or simply vote him out at the next election. That is what due process would look like.

    You cite instances considered to be more traditional relationships between men and women (Ensign and Vitter). Basically affairs, and violations of the marriage covenent.

    Ney does not belong in this comparison, as he was caught up in Abramoff corruption, but if you need a comparison, see Cold-Cash Jeffersen, D-Louisiana.

    With such as Weiner ........... and Foley (R-FL) and Lee (R-NY) we have not affairs, but behavior better described as indirect and random suggestions of sexual daliances with strangers. Many see such as more a more deviant type of behavior. Call it what you will, but it is certainly non-traditional. Where we can compare apples to apples, such as Weiner to Lee and Foley, the Republicans have resigned.

    However, if I may paraphrase Woodrow Wilson: "Do not murder your political opponent when they are commiting suicide". The longer Weiner hangs around, the more he is as poison to the Democrat Party.

    Have you said they should? Show us were you clearly have said that David Vitter, presently sitting in the US house of Congress, should resign now or have resigned due to him screwing prostitutes. How about showing us where you chastised the GOP leadership in Congress that John Ensign should have resigned.. lets say before they backed him for re-election last time around... where he had already admitted screwing around, not to mention was under investigation for the very fraud and what not that ultimately made him resign.

    It is one thing to be critical of Pelosi and the Dems for not cleaning up in their own house (which is fully justified) but when you and others on the right refuse to do exactly the same thing for your own dirty laundry... then calling Pelosi a hypocrite is like pot meet kettle.
