"Weiner Denial"

I am especially enjoying the "Three Ring Circus" Washington has devolved into regarding the Weiner "scandal"!!!!!

ROLF!!!!! LMAQ!!!!! F-ING LMAO!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!

Sorry. That got away from me. The Dems want a man to resign from Congress for NOT HAVING AN AFFAIR? (OK, the writer in the link is a bit over the top regarding impeaching GWB... some of the other points are very well made.)

I am amused because I am watching a group of so-called adults, every one of them has either committed one of more of the following):

Had phone sex, used pornography for "personal reasons", engaged in extra-marital physical contact (which is worse as far as cheating? Kissing someone who is not your spouse or phone sex without  physical contact with someone who is not your spouse), or something far, far more significant - EVERY F***ING ONE OF THEM... this goes for the press folks covering this, the politicians themselves, and the hypocrites back home.

For a Christian nation, it seems to me most Americans missed one of the most significant tenants of that belief system issued during the Sermon on the Mount: "Do not judge others, lest you be judged". I believe He was speaking about such things... venal rather than mortal sin... even a secular guy like me can be pretty sure this does not rise to the level of mortal sin...

America the FOS!!!

Very good point about "judge not lest ye be judged" as Jesus reportedly said.

Jesus did not have much concern with so-called "sexual sins"- unlike US right-wing christians who focus almost ENTIRELY on sexual sins.

Wiener-gate is making an international laughingstock of the US. What an idiot!!

Don't these demorats and repuglicans understand that we have some REAL problems that need solving?

Clearly they are playing to a stupendously boorish and provencial audience... the 2% on the extreme Left and Right... unfortunately, that 4% seems to swing elections around often enough, or these jokers wouldn't play to them.

I think Washington has used smoke and mirrows for so long that they can no longer see that they live in a glass house. Dennis

I don't know guys, I like 48 yr old men that think they are 17 all over again. Does that make me a Weiner ;)?

P.S. I don't see all this so called right wing Christian stuff guys; you are just reacting with a preconceived notion. This is made for TV and the idiot deserves it for putting it out for public consumption. So let me get this right, it is conservative Christian’s fault that a wacko was sending pictures of himself jacking off to random girls? How about the true story is a powerful left wing hypocrite, defender of the feminist left telling a Jewish girl she is the only jew who sucks d*** and Swallows. Look up the piece by Kristen powers that once dated him and defended him for a week, then realized he was using the left Looney’s to make a defense while blaming republican hackers for breaking into his computer and sending fake tweets. So at best the guy is a lying, perverted, deceiving, malicious dirt bag. She lays the whole thing bear for you who are blind to the deal. I say defend someone who deserves it. I am losing respect for all you on here. This is not a criminal case, this is a case of public opinion against a politician. That is kinda the whole point of you voting, you know the people have the power and all that.

I don't know how to explain this any clearer than if you are such an Idiot that you send out pictures of your junk to random girls (some seem to be underage) then you will most likely end up in the newspaper. People like sex, look at the ratings for all these chick shows (greys anatomy, desperate housewife’s, etc), which makes this stuff big time viewer friendly. This is about getting the most viewers ( I will give you guys a hint, SHHHHH!!!! sex sells) and this is not about the Christian right. The difference now compared to Old Jack Kennedy is that the technology has made it easier to get a hold of incriminating information. I think you are knocking on the wrong door.

Do you guys really want politicians who have no limits? This guy is a tool and deserves whatever he gets. He is a public official and carried himself in a completely juvenile way. Ethics and morals do matter, he is 48 yrs old not 18. I take the high ground on this one; you can all play in the weeds.

“This is not a criminal case,...”

Patience Dex, it’s cumming; to quote Harvey Keitel playing FBI agent Sadusky in National Treasure “Somebody has to go to jail.”

Best,

Dex:

To my mind, The FEminist Left and REligious Right share equally in this outrageously hypocritical state of affairs... actually, the Feminists have the Right beat for hypocrisy in this matter...

BTW... Why is age an issue if everyone is an adult?

Because this is a hot button for the Feminists. Look in ALL of the articles where a Fem is bashing some guy for being pro-life (ostensibly (speciously) it was about cheating...) the latest? Look at every article about Gingrich that was written by a member of the women's movement (and I HATE Gingrich). In EVERY ARTICLE it is mentioned that his wife is 22 years younger. WHY? This is NOT a coincidence. In fact, I think it is some kind of code.

As Dex says, sex sells. At this point, this post has 7 comments, the previous about Oil and Israel has 0. I don't blame the Right or the Left. It is the MSM whores that will whip anything into a frenzy to get ratings. The guy IS a dirtbag, and even if we can forgive what he has done, he certainly proved that he lacks the good judgment to hold the office he does. Let the voters decide. They will get what they deserve.

If a man screws around on his wife, I take that into account in all my dealings with him. If he sneaks around and lies to her, how can I trust him? I'm not talking about some schmo that made a mistake once. I'm talking about serial creeps. It may not be a mortal sin, but it is an indication of the character of the man.

Coal Guy:

I firmly believe this is up to his constituents.

On the matter of "serial" cheaters:

I am completely faithful. I do not cast judgments at others because I don't know their circumstances... being faithful to my wife is EASY! But my wife is old-school-from-the-old-country. We have a traditional relationship, and my wife knows how to keep a man happy and at home... and she works at it... From my observations, my wife is the exception these days... not the rule.

Remember my questions to "Broke Ass Grouch"? She was a twice divorced mother of 3... What was it that she was doing/not doing that led her men to away? I refuse to make a judgment on a man's character on this issue.

Greg,

I have no problem with screwing around. Just don't do it and say you aren't. It's the dishonesty that bugs me. I have no problem being faithful to my wife, either. But, if I found myself married to Broke Assed Grouch, I'd divorce her before I started looking around.

It is not easy to stay married or to find a decent mate these days. We are becoming a very self-indulgent, commitment averse society. The economic and social fallout is enormous. The twenty somethings bounce from relationship to relationship. Each time they set up a household and then tear it down. They set themselves back economically and socially over and over again. The damage is tripled when children are involved.

Marriage exists to create a stable social and economic unit that is conducive to raising children. It is enforced more than anything by social pressure. When we lose the stigma attached to the damage that extramarital activities cause, all will be lost.

The left has done a damned good job removing the social stigma from unwed motherhood. Drive your armored car through any big city slum neighborhood and observe the "good" that has done.

Coal Guy:

The Left (Feminists) have removed ANY responsibility of a married woman from her marriage. I had asked this question previously: What is REQUIRED or EXPECTED of women in a marriage today?

You might divorce broke as grouch BEFORE you cheated on her... or maybe not... maybe it would have been better for the children for you to grin and bear it - and see to yourself discreetly... I would leave that up to you.

As far as the denial of infidelity? I completely reject your notion of the more noble action. Those who insist on "truth" in these circumstances are often more sadist than saint. Some things/skeletons ARE best left in the closet... I submit this is one of them. Perhaps its my Catholic upbringing... no, you can't have a divorce and yes, you have to forgive...There is no need to live in a perpetual state of regret or despair. Things happen, life moves on, and my experience is that some people do not have the luxury of doing things as they might like.
