Mathews: Weiner Threatens Dems Chances of Ever Recapturing House Leadership if He Stays

Usually I don't Put much stock in Chris Matthews thoughts and commentary. However, this time he may just have a point.

Chris Matthews continued his drumbeat of disgust with Congressman Anthony Weiner’s “gross behavior” and wondered when was the Democratic leadership going to step up and force him to resign? Although his guests Ben Smith and Chris Cillizza reported that behind the scenes Democratic leaders are very hopeful Weiner will exit, both agreed that it seems like Weiner might not be going anywhere anytime soon.

Matthews was aware that Weiner’s behavior might not be as big of a deal in his home district of New York, but knew that around the country it played much worse. “If you’re a blue dog Democrat from a conservative culture part of the country . . . your life is getting difficult enough defending the East coast and the left coast Democratic party, they’re too far left,” Matthews said. From there he issued a stern warning to the Democratic party at large:

“If [Weiner] stays, [Democrats] never get the leadership [in the House] back. They never get the speakership back. Because the people in the rural areas of this country who are Christian, conservative, culturally – you can say ‘backward’ if you want – they don’t like this stuff.”

Smith thought it was too early to make such broad statements, but Cillizza agreed that the sooner this story is over, the better it would be for Democrats. Matthews, however, like a true “Paul Revere” repeated his warning that the Democrats will not be coming to a majority position in the House of Representatives if Weiner is still there next by the next election season.

If Matthews is right Weiner staying on in the House, even given he is a lying low life, might be a good thing if it cripples the progressive collectivist even further.

  1. Weiner's wrong for his politics, and even possibly for racism (some thought his attacks on Clarence Thomas were racist in tone). The republican moralists obsessed with this pseudo-scandal are no better than the leftists scandalmongers. So, we should focus on his political failings and avoid the biblethumper-like attacks.

    Speaking of liberal racists, here's "Byronius" of New Worlds, who loves Weiner:

    I’ve lost my sense of humor about Republicans. The coming years may see an awful lesson taught to us about their beliefs...... I believe they are damning us and our families to a terrible and doomed period.

    This person is a small businessman and religious fundamentalist from Sacto. What does one call that sort of delusional, paranoid thinking? Sort of like Harry Reid-on-a-crack binge. Even most mainstream demos would cringe at such idiocy.

  2. The Dems may not be the sharpest knives in the drawer, but they're not spoons either...

  3. If a nut like "tingle up my leg" Mathews can see this for the negative publicity that it is, then the dems are in deep trouble. If this leftist nihilist finds this disturbing, what does that say about the other libtards. Pelosi will have no choice but to railroad him and do an Obama and throw him under the bus.

  5. I'm fascinated by the fact that some Democrats and progressives perceive expectations of integrity and maturity as being backward.
