Bad news: Clintons not happy with being compared to Anthony Weiner and Huma

posted at 2:01 pm on July 29, 2013 by Allahpundit

I can’t believe anyone, especially people as politically savvy as Billary, think a guy like Weiner who’ll be a distant memory come 2016 poses any serious problem for the Clinton machine. The annoyance here likely derives from the stature gap between the two couples, the way the royal family might be annoyed to be called “Britain’s Kardashians.” As Dave Weigel said last week, the Weiners are to the Clintons as “Sharknado” is to “Jaws”: Fun in their own pathetically tawdry way, but really just a hollow, farcical imitation.

“The Clintons are upset with the comparisons that the Weiners seem to be encouraging — that Huma is ‘standing by her man’ the way Hillary did with Bill, which is not what she in fact did,’’ said a top state Democrat.

Weiner and his campaign aides have explicitly referred to the Clintons as they privately seek to convince skeptical Democrats that voters can back Weiner despite his online sexual antics — just as they supported then-President Bill Clinton in the face of repeated allegations of marital betrayals.

“The Clintons are pissed off that Weiner’s campaign is saying that Huma is just like Hillary,’’ said the source. “How dare they compare Huma with Hillary? Hillary was the first lady. Hillary was a senator. She was secretary of state.”…

Meanwhile, at least one prominent Hillary Rodham Clinton political operative was described as close to “going public’’ with a sharp criticism of Weiner — in order to send the message that the Clintons, fearing longtime damage to Hillary, want him out of the mayor’s race.

After the trauma of 2008, maybe Hillary’s determined to take even the tiniest potential pitfall seriously, which puts Huma in a bind. His wife’s continuing support is the only thing that gives Weiner even a whisper of a chance at a meaningful political comeback somewhere down the road. The more of a political liability he is, though, the less the Clintons will presumably want anything to do with her. By speaking up at that press conference, she basically adopted the Weiner brand, which was an awfully dumb thing for someone allegedly so smart to have done. Maybe Hillary will let bygones be bygones, but if Huma becomes a peg for the media to occasionally revisit Bill’s troubles during the next campaign, why put her on staff? There must be plenty of other overrated Democratic apparatchiks who could do her job for them just as well. Crunch time for Mrs. Weiner, then: Is it time to save her own skin by demanding of her husband that he drop out? Or is she ready to gamble her role as top Clinton lackey on Carlos Danger’s continuing political viability?

If nothing else, the “Hillary confronts Huma and demands that she tell Anthony to drop out” scene in the new miniseries will make for heart-stopping “Godfather”-esque drama. Or better yet, per the last paragraph of that excerpt, imagine the scene of today’s big Obama/Hillary sitdown where they discuss ways to politically whack him. Starring David Axelrod as Luca Brasi?

Exit question: If, as many have speculated, his current run for mayor is really just a way to flush the rest of his indiscretions into the public eye so that they’ll be old news by the time he runs for real in 2017, then he has to stay in this thing until the bitter end, no? His candidacy is doomed, but if he drops out he’s tacitly admitting that his flaws have rendered him unviable. If he stays in and loses, no matter how badly, he’s just another also-ran candidate who can try again in four years. He can’t signal in any way that this stuff is disqualifying. He has to shrug it off, lose by 30 points, and then spin it by claiming that “the time wasn’t right” or whatever. Tough break for Huma.

Update: Like I said:

Embattled New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner said he doesn’t care what people say or how critics respond — he’s not leaving the race.

“You’re stuck with me,” he told the Staten Island Advance in an interview published Sunday.

Oh yes. Hillary is going to have to have the “it’s either HIM, or it’s ME!” talk with Huma soon. No way is she going to have this booger on her for very long. It’ll be easy for Hillary to cut Huma loose to protect herself, however, it’s the Clinton connection that is likely the very only thing that either Huma/Weiner have left that is of some value…

Man, I hate to repost, so I’ll just blame AP:

Now now guys…in all fairness to Slick Willy and Shrillary, this is totally different. I mean, Huma’s not out there blaming a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy and, to my knowledge, the Weiner’s don’t have a war room who’s job it is to locate the women Anthony texted and slime them as trailer trash out looking for a payday, though that might actually be accurate in Weiner’s case.

In all seriousness:

When you’re a power hungry, talentless hack who’s original claim to fame is that you stuck by your man when he was caught cheating on you and YOUR TOP AIDE (and who knows what else) is also revealed as a power hungry talentless hack who’s standing by her man when he’s exposed as a serial cheater as well, how can you be surprised or upset that there are comparisons?

Given some of those pictures and messages Carlos provided, I’d argue that he was engaged in virtual sex. But it really doesn’t matter much. The real shame here is that the vile disgusting scum of NYC hasn’t made it clear what they think of Carlos Danger. That Dems haven’t done more than just tsk tsk’d his behavior. That his despicable wife stands by the creep who was probably sexting from the hospital waiting room while she was giving birth to their child.

That’s wrong. Bill had his first scandalous affairs while Gov. and Hillary was just the first lady of AR. Or maybe earlier. When was Flowers?

And the comparison is fine. Weiner is a more innocent, less objectionable version of Clintoln. BJ Bullied at least one woman and groped another whose husband had recently died. Also, BJ brought Monica into the Oval office and let her listen in on presidential phone calls.

Weiner never actually committed adultery. Weiner is ,unfortunately for him, more pervy looking and sounding then BJ. THe only way to pull a BJ Clintoln is to work the Elvis eyes for the press and the ladies. Arnold Horshak doesn’t work as well.

Of course they’re exactly the same. What this shows is that character means nothing to the Dems. Only holding onto power counts. Hillary telling Weiner to drop out would be the most blatant hypocrisy imaginable. The thought that they are even contemplating it speaks volumes of the moral degeneracy of the electorate. But the Clintons got away with the charade back in the 90′s, and the nation has only gone precipitously downhill, so they probably could get away with it now, especially with hours-long primetime campaign commercials coming up soon, in the form of media-sponsored drama, to shape public opinion.

Right, we have not …as yet.. proven that Weiner actually splooged on anyone, dress or not.

So his indiscretions are lesser than Clinton who actually did, quite clearly cheat on his wife multiple times with another woman. How dare Weiner think he’s as scummy as Bill, he’s not nearly as much of a sleazy cheat…

that Huma is ‘standing by her man’ the way Hillary did with Bill

Oh, so not the Bill/Weiner part you’re upset with?

Hillary was the first lady. Hillary was a senator. She was secretary of state.”…

Um, when the Minoca story was the news Hillary wasn’t a Senator, she wasn’t a Secretary of State.. she was First Lady; which means “someone important’s wife”. But she aspired to more power.

How is that analogy not fitting for Huma?
Sounds close to 100% to me.

gekkobear on July 29, 2013 at 3:09 PM

Just to copy over from Headlines

Anthony Weiner: “Look at it”

Bill Clinton: “Kiss it”

There’s not exactly a chasm between the two. And as for Huma and Hillary, their professional relationship indicates they’re very close. So, the full comparison between the couples is apt.

Hillary was the original “Good Wife”. Then Silda Spitzer, Huma Abedin Weiner, and then Julianna Margulies in the show of the same name. And now the meme is fully entrenched. Being a pervert no longer disqualifies running for elective office.

“The Clintons are pissed off that Weiner’s campaign is saying that Huma is just like Hillary,’’ said the source. “How dare they compare Huma with Hillary? Hillary was the first lady. Hillary was a senator. She was secretary of state.”…

hillary was a woman embarrased by her husband’s sex scandal but too weak to leave him and try to accomplish something on her own. seems the comparison is valid!

How come there aren’t any new pics of Shrillary wearing her NY Yankees cap? That’s odd…

WEINER-WILLIE. What difference does it make?

…think a guy like Weiner who’ll be a distant memory come 2016

Only if we let him become a distant memory. Think about it the other way around. Do you really think the Dems won’t pull up memories of Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock in the 2016 election? Why should we let them off the hook with Weiner? And Spitzer? And Filner? And Menendez? We have honest-to-God scummy if not criminal behavior to continue to point out to people.

Am I the only one that thinks this skank is as ugly as her husband?

If all this controversy surrounding the Weiner who couldn’t keep his pants on brings the media to do a little walk down memory lane and revisit all the Clinton scandals and probes and investigations (and there have been many) I hope he keeps running. And the more outrage that comes from the Clintons about the comparisons, the more their hypocrisy will be in the limelight. How dare them scoff at Weiner, he’s a small time player compared to those two.

Let’s keep reminding people who she is!

Well, there are some obvious differences, e.g. Anthony doesn’t use cigars as sex objects, and Huma hasn’t caused the deaths of 4 Americans by providing them with Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda security in war zones…also, not having done so, she hasn’t tried to cover-up those 4 murders by lying about and concealing the facts…ditto on the also, she hasn’t tossed and innocent man into Gov’t Jail for a crime she was responsible for.

No wonder the Clinton’s are upset by the comparisons!

If I had a script meeting where my protagonist’s name was ‘Wiener,’ and his pecadillo was sharing pictures of his namesake to various young women, I’d be thrown off the lot as a two-bit hack.

What’s that line about reality being stranger than fiction?

Hillary’s been lying and covering things up since she sullied up the first mansion in Arkansas! The only thing she HASN’T been accused of is tweeting nude pics of herself. Her record needs to be in the spotlight for the next 3 years.
