    in what universe is responding that if were me I would resign the same as saying Anthony Weiner should resign.

    Which translated means Anthony needs to decide what he is going to do.

    In the choice between changing ones mind and proving there's no need to do so, most people get busy on the proof.

      doesn't adhere to the same high standards as the President, well certainly, he can refuse to resign! This is a revision of the 'when did you stop beating your wife'. Well I certainly would resign, I don't know about him.

      "Ultimately there's going to be a decision for him and his constituents," he said.

      What the the President is really saying is "just like I demanded the resignation of Gen. Stanley McChrystal and asked for GM CEO Rick Wagoner to step down, I am unequivocally demanding that Anthony Weiner quit immediately and I could care less what he or constituents think. He needs to leave immediately."

      When he says:

      Public service, Obama continued, "is exactly that, it's a service to the public. And when you get to the point where, because of various personal distractions, you can't serve as effectively as you need to at the time when people are worrying about jobs and their mortgages and paying the bills, then you should probably step back."

      He means:

      Why in the hell is he still in the building? When I say quit your job, I mean I want to see you holding the contents of your desk in a trash can liner and handing in your parking pass to the Sargeant of Arms, as I am speaking. I have demanded that that he quit. What the hell is taking so long?

      I hope that clears things up.

      The President can't be taken literally at this site. He must be interpreted. When he says Anthony Weiner is a liablity to his constituents, knowing that he will be powerless, committeless and radioactive, he really means that he celebrates torture.
