Marion Barry: Weiner a 'good Democrat' By Bob Cusack - 07/28/13 12:49 PM ET
Former Washington, D.C. Mayor Marion Barry said Anthony Weiner is a "good Democrat" who should be talking more about his accomplishments in Congress.
In an interview Saturday night on Geraldo Rivera's show on Fox News, Barry said, "One bit of advice to the congressman: I'd stop talking so much about now and start talking about what you did for seven terms while he was in the Congress. He's a good Democrat."
A couple weeks ago, Barry said he can "identify" with what Weiner is going through.
Earlier in the interview, Barry and Rivera clashed about the ex-mayor's past brushes with the law.
Barry, who is now a D.C. Council member, balked at Rivera's characterization of his past drug scandals.
Barry accused the federal government of attempting to set him up, and twice used an expletive on the air. Rivera asked him to apologize, and Barry later did, saying he was "sorry he got upset."
Prominent Democrats have been critical of Weiner, including Reps. Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.).
David Axelrod, a former senior adviser to President Obama, said Sunday that Weiner is delusional and should drop out of the race for New York City mayor.
"I think it's time for him to go away and let New York have its mayors race," Axelrod said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
...only in Odungoville
“The little *&^%$ set me up!”
Birds of a feather....
He’s not as good a DemocRAT as Carlos Danger is though, right Marion?
Has this guy been smoking crack? Oh, right.
I agree he’s a great Democrat...a shining example of “progressive” stands for.
Well, I really can’t argue with mary-ann on this one. Little anthony and his weiner are true to form for dems. jfk, rfk, filner, spits-her, billy boy clinton. The list goes on and on.
He’s got the crack addict vote.
Actually “normal” would be a better description then a “good” democrat.
Mayor Barry is quite the character reference.
Weiner [is] a 'good Democrat'
Never thought I'd ever say this ... but I completely agree with the libtard crack-head idiot!
I would say more like a typical Democrat.
“Weiner a ‘good Democrat”
Yes he is. Sleazy, obnoxious, lacking any type of moral compass, all the qualities of a dog except loyalty.
A shining example, I agree!
Yes, Weiner is a good Democrat, and never disappoints.
The funny thing about Democrats is they feel that as long as they provide women with abortion on demand the Democratic men can treat women with as much disrespect as they want in their personal lives. Of course, abortion on demand may be the ultimate disrespect towards women, and yet unfortunately too many of both sexes don’t understand that.
