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.

Obama Sin Laden, that is a pure lie. YOU would resign if people caught you sending some gym pics to girls? But you WONT resign when we caught you doing crack and having a gay affair with Larry Sinclair and we also read your anti-white spiel in your books that made you a millionaire and heard all about you going to Islamic mosque in your youth? F-

if he were president like Obama, then maybe that would be a good idea, but he isn't.

Don’t you think, some want him out because Weiner is Jewish?

@anna:

Indubitably the scandal is warming the hearts of the Jew haters. But they always have people to hate even when they have to manufacture reasons to hate. Still, what Weiner did was disgusting and he should resign or be expelled, IMHO. Just because he is a member of a minority group doesn't give him any special rights. No affirmative action for Weiner. Just my opinion. Vitter and Rangel should also resign or be expelled IMHO. Probably others too. We don't want to get too strict or there will be only a handful left in Congress to do their "work". Handful in Congress? LOL. Speak of the devil, Weiner.

If anyone thinks Obama will resign or release his school records or let anyone see his real birth certificate in the flesh, they're dreaming in technicolor. I don't see any of the Repubs who were in the debate in NH tonight beating Obama either. Romney could but a lot of Repubs don't like his Medicare plan he instituted in MASS and a lot of Americans aren't comfortable with a Mormon Prez. Gingrich lost all his top aides and advisors last week and won't commit to meet the people in town meetings to earn their votes. Santorum isn't even in office anymore. Guiliani got almost no support last time. No ones knows Cain, not even those who ate his pizzas. Pawlenty is not exciting anyone. Palin thinks Paul Revere rode to warn the British! McCain is too old. Ron Paul is a libertarian and most Americans aren't libertarians. Bachmann is attractive but will Americans vote for a conservative woman? Looks like 4 more years of Obama unless Jeb Bush runs. Jeb could get the Hispanic vote and carry Florida, Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada. Can America survive another Bush?

What the hell's up with the skin on this Weiner guy's face? Maybe he should stop playing with his penis for five minutes and scrub the holy hell out of his face skin.

Dear Barack Obama,(or Barry Sotero, or Harrison J. Bounel or whatever you're calling yourself this week) the majority of us do think that you're a weiner, so please tender your resignation immediately as promised.

There's a problem here    

That shouldn't be a problem because if that was him his wife would knock the stuffing out of him. I'd be afraid of her too.
