    If he is guilty of criminal charges, yes.

    Otherwise, I'd leave it up to the people of his district.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    So you think a guy that's been flashing his Weiner around for 3-years, and perhaps to minors, is Congressional material? Has the judgment to be a member of Congress?

    OK. Your party.

    Now that the Boehner(see what I did?) has been identified, he deserves to be reprimanded by Congress

    Yes, he should resign - it would be the dignified thing to do. This type of behavior is so juvenile - something teenagers do who don't know any better. Weiner is 45 years old not some 12 year old girl. He SAYS he's taking responsibility but not by ultimately taking responsibility. A person with scruples, any shred of class would just come out and admit it, say his resignation is immediate and that's it.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    No. He didn't do anything illegal. His constituents should decide whether he says or goes in the next election.

    Way to put words into my mouth.

    Has the judgment to be a member of Congress?
    Like I said, up to his constituents to decide.

    OK. Your party.
    I could care less for the Democratic Party as a whole, or Weiner as an individual (although he can be funny sometimes). I am quite satisfied with my own congressman and I couldn't give less of a **** what happens to Weiner. If the people he serves are satisfied with his performance thus far, then that's their business and not anyone else's.

    All that said, what he did was super-dumb.

    What I said when Chris Lee resigned. It fits here:

    As long as there are no criminal charges, it's really none of our damn business. We are now the ones affected.

    Meh, I have a hard time getting worked up about this kind of stuff. Conor Friedersdorf at The Atlantic pretty much summed up my view of this whole thing:
    Several weeks from now, as foreign wars proceed, the unemployment rate rises or falls, and the GOP primaries wear on, does the detailed knowledge we now possess of Weiner's online indiscretions make us better off in any way? Perhaps newspapers in Weiner's district have an special interest in publishing all these details. For folks who'll never have the opportunity to vote for or against Weiner, is this information useful in any way?

    Really, zim? Two posts with "hard Weiner" in the title within 60 minutes? Sounds like we're a little obsessed with the guys dong.

    (Was it actually hard in the photo? I haven't seen, and frankly I prefer not to.)

    You should have had a "not sure" option. That would be my answer. If it's clear in a couple of days that his constituents want that, then yes he should."
