The following story is brought to to you by the number 3 …
As reported by RadarOnLine, disgraced former NY Congressman Anthony Weiner expressed wanting to have a threesome with another man. The salacious tidbit comes from mistress Traci Nobles, who has been shopping a tell all book regarding Weiner. Good grief, you mean there’s more? None of us should be shocked about anything when it comes to Anthony Weiner.
Disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner was caught in online trysts with numerous women, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that according to one of his mistresses, he expressed wanting a threesome – with another man.
Yikes, the Gothamist has more of the exploits of Weiner, do you mean there is actually more that is worse and worth writing a book? What a creepy dude. Democrats had previously lost the House seat formally heald by Anthony Weiner. Its the first time the seat has been held by the GOP since 1922.
After Historic GOP Win … How Can Anyone Take Democrats or DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Serious … NY-9, “It’s a very difficult district for Democrats”
Why Democrats cannot be believed and Obama is a complete liability … it is no longer spin, its complete and total denial.
Last night the GOP accomplished something they had not done since the Warren Harding Administration in the 1920′s … they won the US House election for NY-9. Republican Bob Turner won a decided and pre-election poll predicted 6 point victory over Democrat David Weprin. This is a Congressional district in the heart of deep, dark blue Democratic New York City. So what did DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz have to say regarding the historic GOP election win and the crushing Democrat loss? I guess denial is not just a river in Egypt.
I guess California is a difficult state for Democrats as well … all states just might be with Obama as Prsident
Democratic party leaders insisted the loss wasn’t a harbinger of things to come. “It’s a very difficult district for Democrats,” said Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, noting its Democratic margins there tend to be the second lowest of all the districts in New York City.
Great sarcasm from Hot Air regarding Wasserman Schultz’s comments. What makes the DNC Chairs comments beyond ignorant is that she is also a New York US House of Representative and knows better. A difficult district to win, really Debbie? Democrats have won this district for the past 88 years but suddenly it became difficult for Democrats. You do realize you have lost all credibility.
Well, in her defense, she still hasn’t gotten past that tough loss when Andrew Peterson edged David O’Connell for the seat … in 1922. The same seat was held by Geraldine Ferraro, Chuck Schumer, and Anthony Weiner … when he had his pants on. Going back to 1996, the lowest percentage a Democrat got in a general election in this seat was 60.8%, which was in 2010 while the Tea Party took 63 seats from Democrats that ended up being a lot more “difficult” than this one. It was such a difficult district that Weiner ran unopposed in 2006 and virtually unopposed in 2008.
So what does this mean for Democrats in 2012? The upcoming election is going to be a repeat of the 2010 midterm elections that saw the GOP make gains in the House, Senate, Governorships and State Legislatures. If Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Democrats thinks a safe Democrat district like NY-9 is a difficult place for Democrats … what does that mean for actual swing states like Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Virginia, North Carolina, Nevada and new battleground states like Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan?
President Barack Obama and his policies will decimate the Democrats party for decades to come.
NY-9 Special Election: Turner (R) vs. Weprin (D) … Referendum on President Obama’s Economic Policies (UPDATE: Race Called for Turner!!!)
Barack Obama dragging the Democrat party down …
Barack Obama wants Congress to pass his new jobs bill immediately. However, many are tired of the same old failed polices of President Obama. Today’s special election in New York for the District 9 seat formerly led by disgraced Anthony Weiner has become a referendum of President Barck Obama’s failed economic policies.
Democrat David Weprin faced an unusually tight race against Republican Bob Turner in a special election Tuesday in New York’s heavily Democratic 9th Congressional District, where voters unhappy with President Barack Obama could elect a Republican for the first time.
Prior to election day, the GOP candidate had a lead in the polls. New Yorkers might just do the unthinkable. For the first time in history, NY-9 might just go Republican. With early results in, Republican Bob Turner has a lead over Weprin, 8,819 52% – 8,198 48%.
With this special election in NY-09 being a referendum on Obama’s economic polices, why is it that anyone would want to pass more of his failed agenda like his latest $450 billion son of stimulus?
How bad is this special election for Obama and the White House? Even before the polls closed, the WH was spinning a loss in NY-9. There’s a sign of confidence.What will a loss do to how Obama is perceived by other Democrats? Will anyone in a swing state want the President any where near their campaign? With Democrats having to defend US Senate seats in 2012 in Florida, Ohio, Virginia and Pennsylvania, let alone GOP and trending GOP states like Missouri and Nebraska … will they want Obama to make any campaign visits and drag them down as well?
The White House is girding for a political loss in the heart of New York on Tuesday. They’re also spinning up an explanation that won’t entirely result in the blame landing on the low popularity of the president. As in Massachusetts, where Democratic Senate candidate Martha Coakley was faulted by the White House and many others for tone-deaf campaigning, Democratic candidate Dave Weprin may see the undercarriage of that new White House campaign bus.
UPDATE I (11:28 pm): Total Precincts reporting 215/512: Democrat Weprin 13,667 (49%) – Republican Turner 14,324 (51%) … numerous flash updates at the Lonely Conservative. Come on LC … your NYC brethren, Queens & Brooklynites, need to come through in a big way tonight.
UPDATE II (12:05 am):WOW, Race called for Republican … Turner Wins.
(GOP) Bob Turner: 25,263 – 53%
(GOP) David Weprin 22,703 – 47%
The GOP has done it again, its the Scott Brown moment of 2011. Republican Bob Turner has defeated Democrat David Weprin and taken the seat away from the Democrats. How bad have things gotten for Obama that he could be responsible for the loss of a NYC seat. Really? In deep blue NY, the GOP was the favorite and won.
Republicans have scored an upset victory in a House race that became a referendum on President Barack Obama’s economic policies.
With about 70 percent of precincts reporting late Tuesday, Turner had 53 percent of the vote to Weprin’s 47 percent.
UPDATE III: Looks like the final vote is Turner 54% – Weprin 46% … an even larger victory than polls had stated. Before we get any nonsense spin from the WH or DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, this seat has not been held by a Republican since 1922. This is a total rebuke of Barack Obama on the economy and his Middle East policy.
PPP Poll Confirms that Republican Bob Turner Headed for Uspet Win Over Democrat David Weprin in NY-9 for Weiner’s Old Seat
GOP POISED FOR UPSET IN NY-9 …
Another day and another poll has been released that shows that Republican Bob Turner is headed for a huge and embarrassing upset over Democrat David Weprin in the Congressional NY-9 special election. This election is to replace the disgraced Anthony Weiner who left office in shame. According to a recent Public Policy Polling (PPP) poll, Republican Turner leads Democrat Weprin by 6 points, 47% to 41%, just days ahead of the special election.
Republican Bob Turner is poised to pull a huge upset in the race to replace Anthony Weiner as the Congressman from New York’s 9th Congressional District. He leads Democrat David Weprin 47-41 with Socialist Workers candidate Christopher Hoeppner at 4% and 7% of voters remaining undecided.
Turner’s winning in a heavily Democratic district for two reasons: a huge lead with independents and a large amount of crossover support. He’s ahead by 32 points at 58-26 with voters unaffiliated with either major party. And he’s winning 29% of the Democratic vote, holding Weprin under 60% with voters of his own party, while losing just 10% of Republican partisans.
So why is a Democrat losing in such a heavily Democrat district? Can you say President Barack Obama. The one time so-called Savior of the Democrat party has now become its albatross and anchor, bringing the party down. As stated at Big Government, President Barack Obama is dragging Weprin down and his treatment of Israel is a deciding factor. In a district that Obama won in 2008 and now only has a mere 31% approval rating, with 56% of voters disapproving of him. Obama only has a 16% approval rating with Independents.
Just last week there was a Siena Research Institute survey also showed that Turner was up by 6 points.
What a message this shall send to Obama and Democrats across the nation heading into the 2012 elections. If a Democrat can lose in a deep blue district like NY-09, they can lose anywhere.
Could Republican Candidate Bob Turner Defeat Democrat David Weprin for Weiner’s NY-9 Congressional Seat … Up by 6
Oh those Obama coattails … Could the GOP take Weiner’s old seat in NY? Could this be a sign of things to come in 2012? Welcome to the 2011′s version of the GOP Scott Brown special election victory.
YIKES, how much trouble are Democrats in heading into the 2012 elections? According to a Siena Research Institute survey released on Friday, has Republican Bob Turner with a six point lead over Democrat Mr. Weprin. What a shocker this would be for Democrats and a sobering blow heading into 2012. Turner has 50% to 44% lead over Weprin in a heavily Democrat district. This is the special election for the NY-9 Congressional seat of disgraced Anthony Weiner. What was once thought to be impossible, Democrats have seen their lead collapse in the Weinergate special election and are now in complete panic mode, spewing out negative ads ahead of the Tuesday election.
A new poll released on Friday showed Bob Turner, the Republican, with a six-point lead over Mr. Weprin. The election is on Tuesday, and even though lawmakers have discussed eliminating the district in redistricting next year, the race has become symbolically important as an indication of how much Mr. Obama’s unpopularity might affect other Democratic candidates.
“This has been a difficult campaign, and this campaign has had some major operational problems,” said Assemblyman Vito J. Lopez, chairman of the Brooklyn Democratic Party.
Mr. Lopez said that he expected Mr. Weprin to win, but that the campaign needed to become much more aggressive in the final days.
It is a “PERFECT STORM” against Democrats in NY-9. Weprin is facing the backlash of the Weiner scandal and New Yorkers disgust, Barack Obama’s poor job approval numbers, especially in dealing with the economy and the unanimous belief that the country is headed in the wrong direction. It is Obama’s reverse coattails that is costing Democrats dearly in political elections. What does this mean for 2012?
Many Democratic strategists are privately blaming Obama for their party’s difficulties in both districts and worry that if his numbers don’t improve he could hurt their chances at retaking the House in 2012.
What is the underlying problem for Democrats and namely Barack Obama in this Congressional race, the NY-9 special election is being billed as vote against Obama, Democrats and the direction of the country. According to the polling data, Barack Obama has 43% favorability and a 54% unfavorable. OUCH, don’t look for Obama to be making any appearances for Weprin. Democrats in Brooklyn and Queens have soured on Obama, the economy and the direction of the country.
Likely voters in the district are overwhelmingly pessimistic, with 74 percent saying the country is headed in the wrong direction; Turner wins a striking 94 percent of those voters. Mood toward the direction of New York is much rosier, though — a 47-percent plurality say the Empire State is on the right track.
The economy remains voters’ top concern, with 32 percent listing it as the most important factor in making their decision, including nearly half of Turner’s supporters. But there is a possible beacon for Weprin: Medicare and Social Security isn’t far behind at just 28 percent, and that’s been the focus of late, with Democrats falling back to their successful strategy that helped win them a GOP seat in the western New York’s 26th District this May.
A recent Megellam survey also has the GOP candidate Turner ahead of Democrat Weprin, 44.6% to 40.4%.

Democratic Candidate David Weprin Seeking Ex-NY Rep Anthony Weiner Vacated Seat Distances Himself from Obama
You know its bad for Obama and Democrats when …
How bad is it these days for President Barack Obama? Even candidates that seek political seats in heavy Democrat areas want nothing to do with Obama and look to distance themselves from the once Obamamessiah. The once Savior of the Democrat party is not the albatross.
State Assemblyman David Weprin is looking to fill the seat for the Queens-Brooklyn district of disgraced US Representative Anthony Weiner who resigned his office due to his ill-advised sexting scandal. What is most interesting is that Weprin is distancing himself from President Obama. Even in a prominently Democrat district, Weprin feels the need to run away from Obama. But then again as Jammie Wearing Fool states, who could blame any Democrat running for office to run as far away from the disaster knows as Barack Obama.
because Barack’s popularity has plummeted with moderate and conservative Jews.
The Democratic candidate seeking to fill the congressional seat vacated by randy ex-Rep Anthony Weiner distanced himself from President Obama today — by refusing to say whether he backed the president’s re-election.
“I’m running myself right now. On Sept. 14, I’ll be happy to address the president’s election,” State Assemblyman David Weprin said following a press conference at Queens Borough Hall, where he was endorsed by a bevy of female elected leaders.
The special election to replace Weiner — who resigned in disgrace following a sexting scandal — will be held on Sept. 13.
It is a sign of the times, do not look for Obama to be making any campaign appearances for David Weprin. What a telling sign that in heavily Democratic New York, Obama is a detriment. Is it possible that the GOP challenger Turner could pull off an upset much like Scott Brown did in Massachusetts in 2009? Turner received 39% of the vote in the 2010 election against Weiner. Could it be that with the disgust of Weiner’s actions, a terrible economy and sky-high unemployment.
Barack Obama has an aggregated job approval rating of 44.0% approve and 50.2% disapprove. Why would any Democrat politician want to have to defend Obama’s health care plan, his out of control spending and Obama’s poor at best handling of the economy. You know that it is a sad state of affairs for Democrats when you can’t brink a Democrat president into liberal New York to ride the coattails to victory.
Democrats claim that they want to get beyond the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal, but do they really? They claim that their agenda has been hijacked by Weiner and the endless shirtless and weiner pics. However, one might say that was a good thing for Democrats. Did they really want to discuss jobs, the economy, debt reduction and the highest misery index in 28 years?
Weiner may be gone, but the lasting stain on the Democrat party remains. Weinergate is not an isolated occurrence when it comes to the Democrat party and politics. Sure the naked pics of Weiner’s weiner were a bit much, but sooner or later when one makes politics their religion, it’s only a matter of time before the power goes to their head.
Vanderbilt – ’11
“Political expression has obviously declined to
depths formerly unexplored until now. This
particular ‘representative’ is representing
himself in ways rational folks would not. It
might be said that ‘POWER’ has gone to his head!”
From The Hill:
With Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) all but out the door, Democrats have wasted no time trying to shift the conversation back to the economy, healthcare and other issues of greater national consequence.
Party leaders think they have a winning hand in their opposition to GOP proposals to overhaul Medicare, privatize Social Security and slash funding for safety-net programs amid a lingering unemployment crisis.
Democrat policies have failed on the economy as we remain at 9.1% unemployment. Democrats would love their to be distractions of anything than that what the American people face presently. Look for another Weinergate to distract, but this time it will be one where they leave their clothes on.
Disgraced Weiner Showing Anthony Weiner is Eligible for House Pension on $1.3 Million at Tax Payers Expense
Can some one explain how Weiner is being held accountable for his actions?
Isn’t this special, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) remains eligible for his sizable federal pension as a House US Rep even though he resigned in disgrace amid a sexting scandal.Ever wonder what’s wrong with our government? Disgraced scum bags take no responsibilities for their actions and are not held accountable for their actions. Even after Weiner shows his “weiner” and diminishes his office as a People’s Rep, Weiner still receives a $1.3 million pension. The US tax payers are still on the hook for this joke of a Congressman.
Anthony Weiner to Tax Payer … Show Me the
Weiner could receive almost $1.3 million in taxpayer funds over his lifetime, depending on his contributions to the voluntary program and when he chooses to draw down his pension benefits, the National Taxpayers Union (NTU) reported.
“Anthony Weiner’s resignation from Congress may have put an end to the ‘distractions’ and ‘embarrassments’ that prevented him from getting back to work, but for American taxpayers, the scandal may have only just begun,” NTU Executive Vice President Pete Sepp said Friday in a statement.
Makes one want to be a “weiner” showing Congressman that resigns from office, eh? As Weasel Zippers states … “Only in Congress”.
Under federal pension rules, Weiner could begin drawing down reduced benefits 10 years from now, when he turns 56. Under that scenario, he could collect up to $32,357 annually, totaling $1.12 million over his lifetime, NTU estimates.
If he opts to take the full pension — which kicks in at age 62 — he could receive $46,224 each year, totaling $1.28 million over his lifetime, NTU found.
BTW, in his exit press conference, did Weiner say thank you suckers for his pension?
Obama’s prediction …
Prior to Weiner’s resignation, President Barack Obama chimed and stated that if he were Weiner, he would resign. Now that Weiner has resigned is disgrace amid the sexting scandal, Obama now tells ABC’s GMA that Anthony Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, that he is confident that “they’ll end up being able to bounce back.” This coming from the President who also predicted that a $787 billion stimulus package would keep unemployment below 8.0%. With all the issues going on in America, Obama once again discusses Anthony Weiner. How about them jobs Mr. President?
He’ll bounce back … yea that’s the ticket, now get outta here
President Obama said he is confident that embattled New York Rep. Anthony Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, can bounce back from the sexting scandal that ended the Democrat’s congressional career.
“I wish Rep. Weiner and his lovely wife well,” Obama said in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts to air on “Good Morning America” Friday. “Obviously, it’s been a tough incident for him, but I’m confident that they’ll refocus and he’ll refocus, and they’ll end up being able to bounce back.”
The UK Telegraph lists 10 jobs that Weiner could immediately step into now that he finds himself unemployed. Here are a couple listed below:
- Hot Dog salesman
- Fedex Spokesman
- CNN host
- President of the United States
Yesterday, Anthony Weiner held a press conference to announce his resignation. Why? Once again Weiner had to make himself the center of attention which speaks to the reason why he finds himself in the middle of a sexting scandal and resigning from office. Needless to say, the presser became a 3 Ring Circus. What else would one expect when a many named Weiner takes pics of his Weiner and brilliantly decides to send it to women? It could not have been more of a ridiculous and fitting ending to a man who disgraced himself, his family and his office.
If you had Thursday, June 16, 2011 at 2PM … would won Weiner Watch.
It’s official, Anthony Weiner has resigned.Needless to say Weiner’s presser turned into what his life is and has become, a joke. One individual, after hearing Weiner’s announcement of resignation yelled, “bye, bye pervert.” Good riddance to bad rubbish. How could any one have allowed this ridiculous charade to go on for so long?

“I am announcing my resignation from Congress so my colleagues can get back to work, my neighbors can choose a new representative and most importantly that my wife and I can continue to heal from the damage I have caused,” Weiner said.
