Democrats offer Weiner advice

Washington (CNN) – Although Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he has no advice for embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner, two prominent Democrats offered some guidance on how he might weather what one called a "perfect storm" of controversy.

"For Anthony Weiner, it's about showing true remorse and removing politics from the calculation," Democratic strategist Robert Zimmerman said. "He has to then not just worry about his constituents but worry about whether he'll have a district to run for."

    I say let him stay. He'll help out the other side. The gift that keeps on giving.

    The Weiner tweeter.

    Millions dead from phony intel to start an illlegitimate war ... bush/cheney war criminals still walking free...and the media demands Weiner to resign for posting foolish tweets? When did the palin circus start writing op's for CNN and MSNBC? When did legitimate news orgs morph into fox news? Oh! that's right you guys don't allow strong language so that means you are still respectable...not by a long shot...cowards is the word that seems more appropriate...while anderson seems to be channeling dennis miller...you used to be the gold standard...now your credibility seems more like mush metal ! mikosan

    That is a rather eloquent way of stating the inevitable exit strategy. "Remove politics from the calculation."

    It's very simple: submit your resignation. If you do not, it proves you have no honor. You have already proven you have no integrity. A man without honor should NOT be a sitting Congressman. It is a disgrace to this country that this low life is allowed to remain in one of this countriy's highest offices.

    One simple question for all of you Weiner supporters: Would you allow this man to babysit YOUR children? If not, then why trust him in office? If you would, seek medical treatment.

    Amazingly, I agree with you, especially that "proof of honor" part. Well said.

    Weiner may not have used State fund to fly to see his mistress in Argentina; nor solicited prostitutes like VITTER and other Conservatives (the list is long)........ however, come on, folks, he is perverse! At the very least, he could have taken precautions not to get caught! He was NOT thinking, and he LIED when caught!

    Let this be a lesson to ALL members of Congress, you STUPE THIS LOW AND OUT YOU GO!
