Obama: If I Were Weiner, I'd Resign

6/13/2011 3:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Obama just made a bold statement about Congressman Anthony Weiner's predicament ... "I can tell you that if it were me, I'd resign."

Obama, who made his statement to "Today" anchor Ann Curry for broadcast Tuesday, said "Well, obviously what he did was highly inappropriate.  I think he's embarrassed himself, he's acknowledged that, he's embarrassed his wife and his family."

Obama continued, "And when you get to the point where, because of various personal distractions, you can't serve as effectively as you need to -- at the time when people are worrying about jobs and their mortgages and paying the bills -- then you should probably step back."

FYI, Obama also suggested last year that Congressman Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) resign on ethical grounds, but he stayed put.

Do you think he will have a black eye that matches the one slick willie Bill Clinton got from HIllary when she found out he was dipping a cigar in that fat skank Lewinski?

I did not have sexual relations with that woman, miss Lewinski.

That depends on what your definition of the word "is" is.

What do you think Anthony, Oscar Meyer, Weiner's answer will be?

Dear @ProUs I live in CLT NC, was laid off for over two years before finding a job. Not in my career field. A job. No insurance. And in this market, I'm happy for it.

Bottom line, Obama didn't create this situation, doesn't have a magic wand to make things the way we want it and he can't get us out of this mess in two years, especially fighting the tide here in the south. Like or dislike Obama's politics - I don't care.

WeinerDouche has shown he has no regard for the laws the rest of us must follow and is now claiming "treatment" as a "timeout" to deal with his flat out negligence to his job.

...ohhhh, TMZ :( tsk, tsk, tsk! The president SPECIFICALLY attempted to use correct grammar when he said, "If I was him*, I'd resign." But, one of you played him when you incorrectly quoted him by using Kardashian grammar.

Yikes, c'mon, guys & gals... It can never, ever, not-even-once be, "I were..." or "If it were...," etc. (See what happens when you skip 5th period English??)

*In fact, it should really be, "If I was he..."
