Chris Matthews said Weiner should stay on because “he still has a roll to play” for the American people. On Matthews’ Hardball program there is less talk about condemnation and more talk on how Weiner should have dealt with the issue once the story first broke out. To the folks at MSNBC the real shame is not Weiner’s actions. The real shame is that Democrats stand to lose a strong voice in Congress if Weiner loses his post. Even Harry Reid didn’t stoop that low.
Reid said “I know Representative Weiner. I wish I could defend him, but I can’t”. Chalk one up on the good side for Harry.
Watch this video of Weiner defending himself on ABC. Please excuse the brief ad. Watch it all, then ask yourself what kind of person it would take to defend this man as fit to represent the American people.
