Campaign Death Knell: Fading Weiner Tells the Clintons to Pound Sand

Posted by on Jul 30, 2013 at 6:50 am

This guy is an “accident” waiting to happen. Now that he’s crossed his former pals his minutes may be numbered.

Even the Clintons wouldn’t be able to convince Anthony Weiner to drop out of the New York mayoral race.

The hyper-sextual candidate — whose poll standing is plunging — made it clear Monday night that he’s indifferent to the opinion of Bill and Hillary Clinton, who have kept their distance from his campaign.

“I am not terribly interested in what people who are not voters in the city of New York have to say,” Weiner said in response to a question about whether the former president and secretary of state, who live in Westchester County, could influence his decision.

He said he only was thinking about New Yorkers, and “I am focused like a laser beam on their interests.”

Maybe if he was focused like a laser beam on the interest of New Yorkers instead of his crotch he wouldn’t be in such a mess.

The brazen comment at a mayoral forum in the Morrisania section of the Bronx came hours after a new poll showed Weiner had dropped from first to fourth place in the Democratic primary for mayor. The poll plunge followed last week’s revelations of raunchy sexts he sent after resigning from Congress in 2011 for the same behavior.

You know things are bad when even Eliot Spitzer says its time to go.

On MSNBC, “Hardball” host Chris Matthews pressed Spitzer about Weiner’s candidacy. “He should not be mayor of New York?” Matthews asked.

“That is correct,” Spitzer said.

    I actually thought it was a good move, politically speaking. Who indeed cares what they think? Weiner’s only hope at this point is to play the anti-elitist underdog card. Sure, he’s psychotic, but does this matter to Americans or New Yorkers anymore?

    Everything about Weiner, Abedin and the Clintons is tarred with the same sticky brush of political taint. We’ll eventually find out that it was an arranged marriage (by the Clintons) and part of the dues Huma was forced to pay for her political future. The fact that they’re suddenly under closer scrutiny about things like the cost of the wedding, who paid for it and why no claims were made by Weiner as required by law just go to show that he’s been upgraded from an official embarrassment to an active threat for Hillary’s 2016 campaign.

    So yeah, everyone from the DNC to the MB will be suspects when Weiner ‘unexpectedly’ disappears or suffers a terrible ‘accident’.

    Take it from me, don’t cross the Clintons. And don’t ake any strolls in the park.
