It’s great to see Representative Anthony Weiner exposed — I knew little of him before the sexting report, though did think he was a bit obnoxious.  And frankly when the sexting story broke, I didn’t pay much attention until he claimed to have been hacked.  What?  That’s a serious allegation and not true.  And now I see the TRUE IMPORTANCE of the story — It’s to show how easily and aggressively politicians lie to the public.  Mr. Weiner told lie after lie after lie, blamed others, down played the issue and mocked the inquisition, common moves in the political playbook.  Do you really think a big liar is going to do what’s best for you?  They promise to, but Mr. Weiner and numerous others are too busy looking out for themselves.  Re-establish integrity, dump them as spouses and politicians.  Nobody needs crap.

It’s just another politician lying to Americans, that’s all.  Add John Edwards to the list.  And he wanted to be our President too – YIKES.  Why do so many politicians think they can do anything they want and there will be no consequences?  Is it because the biased media protects them?  Partly YES.

I wonder what else he’s lied about, or is still lying about?  Is the baby his?  Whose paying Rielle Hunter’s mortgage?  I guess we’ll be finding those things out soon.  I have a lot more respect for those who make mistakes and admit to them.  He eventually did but only because he got caught.  It’s appalling.

He was seeking our highest office, while blatantly lying to our faces.  I can’t respect that and I’m thankful he got busted.  Where are those candidates with strong character Americans so desperately need?
