One of the reasons it took twenty days for Rep. Anthony Weiner to resign when it didn’t take much more than twenty minutes for Speaker Boehner to demand Rep. Chris Lee’s resignation turned out to be the hold-up of some kind of job for him.
Want to know a primary reason that thus far Weiner is refusing to quit despite the calls for him to do so from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, NY Rep. Steve Israel, chairman of the House Democrats’ campaign committee and others? A big reason is he simply cannot afford to. His world has been turned upside down overnight, and the nation’s politicians are incensed by it – but it really comes down to the fact that his finances don’t lend many options right now.
As The NY Post reported “Weiner doesn’t have a business or even a law degree to fall back on. He made $156,117 in 2010, and owes between $10,000 and $15,000 on his American Express card according to his most recent financial-disclosure forms.” Anthony Weiner, the man, has never had another job since starting in politics at the age of 21 in 1985. The future career possibilities for the 46 year old “object” Anthony Weiner aren’t too bright these days.
We are talking about a man who has never held a private sector job in his entire life.
Last year, the now-jobless Weiner joked on former roommate Jon Stewart’s cable comedy show that he didn’t “have a lot of marketable skills.” It’s one of Weiner’s rare truthful utterances over the past year. A protégé of fossilized New York Sen. Charles Schumer, Weiner has spent the last 20 years in politics – straight out of college to the present. Through seven consecutive congressional terms, he has stridently advocated job-killing policies in the name of the working class. About which this ruling-class elitist knows nothing.
But it turns out Weiner DOES have one highly marketable skill: he is a rarefied pervert. And in a degenerate world of pornography (a gift of liberals and liberal judges who said they couldn’t tell the difference between “art” and “porn” no matter how much of it they watched), being the level of sexual pervert that Weiner clearly is DOES have value:
But here’s the thing.
Anthony Weiner was one of THE leading voices of the Democrat Party and THE voice for liberal values. Bill O’Reilly demonstrated that the real loser in this Weinergate scandal is liberalism; they lost their star voice. He debated with two liberals who couldn’t come up with anybody better than also-utterly-disgraced Rep. Charlie Rangel. Even über über liberal Rachel Maddow says Weiner’s resignation will hurt the Democrat Party “probably for a generation.”
And who is this voice of liberalism? An arrogant perverted punk who has spent his entire life on the taxpayer dole and who has absolutely no redeeming quality whatsoever in the world he demanded to have the power to regulate and then regulate some more.
I have pointed this out before: why on earth would any decent American want a Weiner running their lives??? Why would anyone but the worst fool imaginable want a guy like Anthony Weiner – who is not only a lying pervert but who literally is utterly USELESS in the real world – writing the laws that will control our economy and our lives???
Which just gets more to the point: if you vote for Democrats, you are a true fool indeed.
Michelle Malkin wrote a brilliant chapter in her book, Culture of Corruption. It details how liberals make incredibly lucrative careeers moving from politics (either in elected office or as staffers) to crony capitalism (as lobbyists or in firms that want to schmooze politicians). Michelle Obama is an example of this, as is Rahm Emanuel, as is Valerie Jarrett. Crony capitalism is nothing more than fascism in waiting. These people get rich gaming the system even as they corrupt and rot the system from within like leeches.
