Weiner resignation: Be careful what you wish for, GOP

The GOP is, perhaps, second only to the PLO in never missing an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

No good can come of a Republican call on Rep. Weiner to resign.  A Republican with keen political instincts and populist  passion, would instead, I submit, have noted  Rep. Weiner's contention that he did not violate his oath of office, pointed out that Rep. Weiner made false accusation, and conclude that as it is not unusual for Democrats to make false accusations against Republicans -- perhaps most notably when  asserting that Republican policies will bring death and suffering to  young and old, and all ages in-between -- for Democrats,  making a false accusation  against one's political foes is  a violation neither of  of the Constitution, ethics or morality but,  rather, a political imperative. 

 

True, uttering a false report is prohibited in the Bible (see, e.g. Exodus 23:1) but,  in view of the source,  Democrats may well  dismiss this  as an illicit church-state relationship.

 

If a Republican is going to demand that Rep. Weiner resign for making false accusation in what is now known as "Weinergate," shouldn't similar demands should be made of all Democrats who make false accusations against Republicans?

Perhaps the wiser course would counsel swift and clear objection by Republicans to all false accusations made by Democrats, while acknowledging, with sadness, that mendacious mutterings seem to have become a liberal political trait.
