The problem here is the lying about it for a week. Overall everything else, while embarrassing, is pretty tame. Nothing he did was illegal. He did not get a BJ under the oval office desk. He did not get a BJ from a gay man in an airport bathroom. He did not use campaign funds to hide and house his mistress with whom he fathered an illegitimate child. He did not say he was hiking the AT while really in Argentina with his mistress.
He got on the net, talked dirty and Brett Favred a few anonymous women one of whom was an attention whore who could not wait for her Monica Lewinski moment.
Compared to all the sadistic perverse behavior we see by our elected officials nowadays this is nothing. Again the problem is the lying.

nobody this mentally phuqued up should be in any level of public representation.

the skinny little puke is typical of the cowardly bstrd who says something online, but would go full on thumbsuckingfetal if he ever had to face the consequences of his sick actions, in the face of the husband, father, or boyfriend of one these women.

He didn't even father a child with one of his housekeepers, just as he was about to marry a powerful political sibling of the opposite political party. But I agree. Among the sins of society, his behavior is pretty minor. The far greater sex sin is fathering unwanted children in an over populated world.

Well, a lot of us have ethical problems from time to time. I've never met anyone that didn't.

But most politicians I've known over the years are more ethical than almost any other profession, I've dealt with. The reason is pretty obvious. Politicians are always in the public eye. Unlike cheating supermarkets, lawyers, bankers, ministers, priests, builders, ponzi schemers, and industrial polluters, who deal with us one on one, or a few at a time, and we hear about only when the catastrophes they cause make the news, such as happened when investment banker shenanigans threatened to destroy the world economy.

I get where you're coming from but acting right because people are watching you has nothing to do with ethics or character. It just means you don't want to get caught.

Who happened to father one of his slaves children. I recall Strom Thurman did something similar many years later. Had that leaked to the press he would have been ridden out on a rail and never would have been able to do all the good he did while serving decades in office. Including reversing his stand on segregation. I'm just saying people can have some strange dysfunctional personal lives but still perform admirably in their jobs.
Also who is in charge of saying what is moral or immoral? Do we go just by legality? If not then where is the line drawn? Cheating? Sexting? Masturbation? Is Playboy OK but Hustler bad? I know many Christians feel homosexuality is immoral. Should we stop letting gays run for office? Sorry Barney Frank. You're out. I say if Weiner did not break any laws he should be allowed to stay in office and let the people decide if he should be allowed to stick around in the next election. There are much bigger problems to worry about than this Freudian bullshit. If some S&M exhibitionist donkey banging sex addict freak had the answer to world peace I wouldn't be saying, "sorry, world peace would be nice and all but you are just not moral enough for us to accept your solutions"

Totally wrong. There are exceptions, but most politicians get their start by serving on school boards or town councils, because they see issues that in their minds are being handled wrongly. A few move on to serving in state legislatures, all of which call for years that demand a great number of work hours, and minimal compensation. Six plus months of 12-hour days of Legislative service in Maine pays around $9,000.

A few perform well enough to get the attention of their underpaid companions and the electorate, so get recruited to run for Congress, when there is an incumbent that no veteran politician wants to run against.

My job for two decades required that I deal with politics most days. I went from being a political cynic, to appreciating the dedicated public service so many underpaid "politicians" provide our democracy.

Yes. a few incompetent or on the make folks, are elected because the public refuses to take the time to study important issues or the candidates. I regularly see why incompetents sometimes are chosen, when people on these forums declare proudly that they don't watch television, or read newspapers. But except for occasional popular fad elections, (think the tea party) democracy works reasonably well.

Not just normal but natural. Men instinctively have the need to spread their seed far and wide. We evolved that way to ensure the propagation of the species. Women evolved with the nesting instinct to raise and protect their offspring until such time that their children could go out and procreate themselves.
If men never "cheated" on their mates the human race very well could have died out eons ago
Fast forward to the society of today and you see a bunch of figuratively castrated men going against their natural instincts by staying monogamous or men that cheat hoping not to get caught or man whores that are at the very least true to their nature and don't care what anyone thinks. ie Charlie Sheen. Morality is completely suggestive.
Some would argue that it is moral to kill complete strangers 1/2 way around the world because of fear and ideological beliefs while saying that having sex with multiple partners is perverse and immoral.
Yes, Weiner likes young, physically attractive women. OMG he is an immoral son of a bitch. Kick him out of office.

i submit the same testosterone that drives politicians to unapologetic wanton desires for sex is also what drives them to office. same principle, or lack thereof, drives men to run corporations. the desire for power, sex and, of course, money is a powerful lure driven by overactive libidos. without those elevated testosterone levels, there would be no leaders. not saying it is right. just saying that basic human instincts is what drives everything. trying to control whatever can be described as good in that is very difficult and given AMERICAN society's expectations of men to be 'puritan' family men makes it very difficult for driven men to find a workable balance. 'keeping their pecker in their pants' is very hard for these types - pun intended. :D

i submit the same testosterone that drives politicians to unapologetic wanton desires for sex is also what drives them to office. same principle, or lack thereof, drives men to run corporations. the desire for power, sex and, of course, money is a powerful lure driven by overactive libidos. without those elevated testosterone levels, there would be no leaders. not saying it is right. just saying that basic human instincts is what drives everything. trying to control whatever can be described as good in that is very difficult and given AMERICAN society's expectations of men to be 'puritan' family men makes it very difficult for driven men to find a workable balance. 'keeping their pecker in their pants' is very hard for these types - pun intended. :D

I disagree.

It's just that men of honor and integrity do not get elected, because they stand up for what is right and decent, say what they mean and mean what they say, and all it does is puts a target on their back.

Not just normal but natural. Men instinctively have the need to spread their seed far and wide. We evolved that way to ensure the propagation of the species. Women evolved with the nesting instinct to raise and protect their offspring until such time that their children could go out and procreate themselves.
If men never "cheated" on their mates the human race very well could have died out eons ago.
.....
Our current views of sex are based largely on our religious culture. Jesus in who's name Christiantity was founded, is praised for having been born without benefit of the male sex. The largest Christian sect says its clergy should live without sex. Though, speaking of "moral" values, the evidence is growing that it also spent centuries covering up the many violations. The early founders argued that the goal of Christian believers should be to live a life of celibacy.

In contrast, during the centuries that Christianity was evolving out of Judaism, religions in the east preached that sex was an essential part of their religious beliefs. The sacred texts of India proscribed the many ways that sex should be practiced in religious life. Men were told that the "moral" thing to do was to encourage their wives to have sex with multiple partners and thus further the religious lives of his friends. A similar culture prevailed among the primitive tribes of the far north.

Traditional morality is changing rapidly in our culture. Around half our kids are now born to unmarried parents. Bill Clinton was reelected with ease despite his lies. JFK continues to be praised, despite the revelations of a newly active press. Barney Frank continues to be among the most respected and influential Congressmen.

However, resistance continues. The church that covered up the sexual activites of its priests, still insists that only one man, one woman can marry. Wiener's real sin may be that he wasn't a very good Congressman, so no one feels obligated to support him against the rabble rousers.

If a teenager did the same thing, and apparently 'sexting' is common then it is a juvenile act but probably not a moral issue. Teens do dumb things, part of the process. If someone is a married adult it then becomes a violation of both vows and trust and is, to my way of thinking, a lack of morals.

Some Muslim sects condone and even encourage having multiple wives. Some old school Mormons feel the same way. It is accepted practice in most biker gangs (not clubs) although many of the marriages therein are symbolic rather than legal. Polyamory was widespread in the 60s and 70s with married couples often attending "swinger" parties. So MB you are clearly wrong. Yes it may not be acceptable to society on the whole, but it is acceptable and even encouraged among many cultures within our society.

I post these things because politics are important. They determine whether our mutiple wars and the millions who died and were injured in those wars did so for a purpose that survived.

I'm appalled by the present state of American politics and what the appalling state possibly means for the future of this nation and the world. We have reached the point where increasingly no one on either side of a critical issue is willing to speak the truth for fear of immediate ouster from office.

Both parties are at fault. Speaking the truth means defeat, so no one speaks the truth anymore. Serious economists are virtually unanimous in saying that had it not been for Obama's rescue of the banking system, the world would now be in one of the most serious depressions in history.

Gingrich's campaign has probably ended because he dared to tell a few truths among his multiple lies. Romney is denying his greatest accomplishment because to cite it means the ignorant will defeat him.

The only two ways to balance the budget and pay off our debts, are to either abolish the military or restore the Reagan and Bush tax cuts. Economists know this. A few of us with the ability to read and think know this. But any politician that says so will be defeated because no one for many years has dared to speak the truth.

Virtually, the entire political establishment would face immediate defeat if they did not condome lies far more deadly than any Weiner has spoken.

Who happened to father one of his slaves children. I recall Strom Thurman did something similar many years later. Had that leaked to the press he would have been ridden out on a rail and never would have been able to do all the good he did while serving decades in office. Including reversing his stand on segregation. I'm just saying people can have some strange dysfunctional personal lives but still perform admirably in their jobs.
Also who is in charge of saying what is moral or immoral? Do we go just by legality? If not then where is the line drawn? Cheating? Sexting? Masturbation? Is Playboy OK but Hustler bad? I know many Christians feel homosexuality is immoral. Should we stop letting gays run for office? Sorry Barney Frank. You're out. I say if Weiner did not break any laws he should be allowed to stay in office and let the people decide if he should be allowed to stick around in the next election. There are much bigger problems to worry about than this Freudian bullshit. If some S&M exhibitionist donkey banging sex addict freak had the answer to world peace I wouldn't be saying, "sorry, world peace would be nice and all but you are just not moral enough for us to accept your solutions"

Not saying pot would be the best alternative in your situation but it has worked wonders for people suffering from autism to MS to breast cancer(Melisa Ethridge for example) to Parkinsons to glaucoma to migraine sufferers etc... anyone who says pot has no medicinal value is clearly ignorant on the subject and has been brainwashed by the media and the government. As far as recreational use it is far less dangerous than alcohol.

"As far as recreational use it is far less dangerous than alcohol."
As a registered Respiratory Therapist, I feel inhaled (smoked) marijuana is horribly detrimental to the lungs; worse than cigarettes. As to marijuana eaten in brownies or other forms on oral ingestion (not smoked) I have no opinion.

No. Not worse than cigarettes.
1) people do not smoke 20, 30, 40 joints a day like they do cigarettes
2) pot does not contain arsenic, formaldehyde, nicotine and the over 500 other chemicals cigarette manufacturers add to their product to keep their customers hooked.
3) pot has no physically addictive properties unlike cigarettes
Yes smoking anything is not good for the lungs. No shit. But pot you can try to argue is as dangerous as cigarettes but to say it is worse than cigarettes illustrates how misinformed you are on the subject. And your a Respiratory Therapist?
Reminds of the lies D.A.R.E. told us when they came to our school when I was in fifth grade. Some memorable ones were, "smoking a joint is like playing Russian Roulette. You may not die the first time or the second but eventually if you smoke pot it will kill you"
and "smoking a single joint is the equivalent of smoking an entire pack of cigarettes" They must still be teaching that one in Resp. Therapy school.

If it makes you feel better though I will agree that pot is more harmful to the lungs than alcohol.
I would also like to mention that pot can also be used to make clothing, paper, rope even fuel without depleting the soil and detracting from a food source like corn. People making billions in the pharmaceutical, paper and fuel industries know this of course and are more than happy to continue spreading lies to the gullible masses to keep them in fear of "the devil weed".

Not saying pot would be the best alternative in your situation but it has worked wonders for people suffering from autism to MS to breast cancer(Melisa Ethridge for example) to Parkinsons to glaucoma to migraine sufferers etc... anyone who says pot has no medicinal value is clearly ignorant on the subject and has been brainwashed by the media and the government. As far as recreational use it is far less dangerous than alcohol.

Even doctors say the real thing is better.
I suspect the butter form is probley the best or least harmful. There may not be any harm in it at all.
Marinol is not real pot but it works for her. Theres a lot of missing that may be helpful as well.
The Law on it needed to be changed a long time ago for a lot of reasons.

It's legal for medical use in Michigan. The problem is crooked docs writing anybody with a $200 consult fee a prescription for a mm Card. It's a joke.

Liberalism for most of history has kept this nation a world leader. Liberals have solved virtually all of our crises. So called conservatives have solved none. When the crises come, they agree with the liberals just long enough for them to solve what's going wrong. Then they return to their mantras.

As near as I can tell, Conservatives most important role over the decades has been to stand aside while liberals rescue us, and then, jump in with their criticism.

All true, I suspect. But I'm not a good witness. I've puffed from time to time, to be a good companion. But since I had quit tobacco years earlier, like Bill Clinton, I rarely had been able to inhale, so the impact ranged from moderate to none existent.

I haven't checked lately. Nor does it matter. Are you suggesting that Roosevelt should have surrendered when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.

Viet Nam began as a Democratic mistake. It was carried on by Nixon for five years after we were defeated. Nixon resorted to a break in so he could win reelection, and keep the war going.

All the current wars were started by Republicans.

Who was playing golf when the Gulf Oil Spill occurred, then blamed it on BP and then later finds out it was no fault of BP's because the cap was put in as regulated right now?

Libya is a minor skirmish, of the kind carried out by all Presidents. It pales in significance compared with Reagan's invasion of Granada with US Marines.

Wars can not be turned on or off at the whims of a president. Both the Iraq and Afganistan wars were started by George Bush. Iraq was invaded based on lies and deliberately sloppy intelligence. Obama is bringing it to a reasonably responsible end. Combat troops are being removed. All troops are on schedule to be removed soon. Had Bush concentrated on Afganistan, where the 9-11 terrorists were being sheltered, that war would have been over years ago. Obama is best. I find it interesting that conservatives who applauded his expansion of that war, are now using it to attack him.

Aside from timid efforts at universal medical care, the money that Obama is spending is aimed at preventing the serious recession left behind by Bush from slumping into modern version of the 1929 depression.

Except when Bill Clinton created a balanced budget, every recent admistration has lived on borrowed money. The debt limit has to be raised periodically as a result. Until the recent spending needed to avert a depression, Reagan and Bush 2 were the record borrowers.

Do you really think that Obama's golf game caused the Gulf oil spill and sharing a beer with the Royals resulted in the tornadoes that damaged the midwest and parts of the south? That seems a bit far fetched to me.
