All this Media controversy on the Twitter photo that was mildly lewd on Congressman Weiner's twitter account that was sent to a women from Seattle is ridiculous, the media are acting like a bunch of fools and people with their heads not attached properly to their shoulders. First off the photograph doesn't deserve all the public attention the media is giving it, it is a photograph of a guy in his underwear, it is juvenile delinquent behavior the whole episode; for heaven sake there is currently dozens of people being killed on a daily basis by their government in Syria merely because they want their natural rights that any citizen in a country should have and we in America are spending all this time on an adolescent behavior photograph it is absurd. It is a real travesty of justice what the media is doing to Congressman Weiner here in trying to pin responsibility for sending this photo to the Seattle women on the Congressman. Congressman Weiner has denied sending the photo and because the media has no clear proof to the contrary they shouldn't be trying to imply he is lying, in fact responsible behavior calls for accepting his statements here for the following reasons. First, this guy Weiner is the real deal when it comes to being a congressman, he is not like a lot of other self interested persons in Congress that want to keep getting reelected and get all the perks that that entails and don't really care about making America be the best place it can be. Anthony is out there on the front line taking on those Republicans whether it be the 2011 budget where Republicans were seeking to cut vital programs or the Republican's medicare plan where they are planning to do away with guaranteed government health insurance for seniors and if I recall correctly he fought especially hard for the legislation that recently passed helping first responders to the World Trade Center attacks on 911; Anthony genuinely cares about people and puts himself out in the public eye in an uncommon way in doing so. It doesn't make any sense that a representative that is so serious about the issues and of such high quality would involve himself in such juvenile delinquent behavior. This assessment is coming from a writer who is not a person that is from Anthony's political corner, Anthony is a liberal democrat this writer is a centrist independent. This writer thinks Rep. Weiner and his cohorts are wrong when it comes to government spending the government has to stop all this bloated government and wasteful spending that puts huge numbers of people on the public payroll America can't afford it; the federal government should be going through each federal agency whether it be education department or the department of Health and Human Services and have a study done that determines what every employee does down to the smallest department, the study should be made public and the respective congressional committee should take a financial scalpel and financial meat cleaver whichever merits call for and eliminate all unnecessary staffing, the Republicans got it wrong with just general percentage cuts. Rep Weiner and his cohorts have it wrong with school vouchers no amount of public money no matter how large budgeted for public schools is going to fix many public school systems its throwing money into a black hole because American culture and many American families don't inculcate in children the importance and drive to get a good education like other countries do you could have all Bill Gates and Steve Jobs type of teachers and many children still wouldn't get an education, responsible government should create a voucher system to at least empower parents that have that care for their children to find schools that will give their children an education moreover a society doesn't educate a child unless it educates a child morally public schools don't do this vouchers will empower parents to give their children a full education by sending them to a religious school. Congressman Weiner likely didn't send this photo because his track record demonstrates he obviously is too smart too be involved in such stupidity; anyone with any sense knows that in our age that if a congressman sends such a photo that fact would likely become public and such a move would cause a firestorm and could jeopardize his or her political career. Moreover, in the last thirty days there was an election to fill the seat of a congressman that had to resign because of sending inappropriate pictures to a women not his wife, the resignation of Representative Chris Lee, it is hard to believe that Congressman Weiner would forget the lessons to be learned by the Lee matter and fall into largely the same mistake. For the criticism of Congressman Weiner not wanting to make this a criminal matter, I am sure that if a poll was taken asking the question that if you were a Congressperson and your twitter account was hacked like Congressman Weiner's was would you want criminal charges pressed at least a significant number of people wouldn't many Americans are very nice and compassion people and wouldn't want to bring such a stern penalty on the perpetrator(s) which a criminal prosecution would be. With respect to all the condemnation over Congressman Weiner essentially saying he can't say definitively that the photo in question it is not a photo of him, well if you've seen the photograph which is a below waist/above knee photo of a person in their underwear how can most caucasian men say honestly that it is definitely not a photo of them there isn't the detail in the photo to provide such clear answers!
