Skip to comments.Weiner's inner circle says he's prepping for future comeback
Posted on 09/07/2013 1:03:57 PM PDT by jimbo123
Former Rep. Anthony Weiners (D-N.Y.) friends believe that, while his campaign for mayor may have become a joke, it will set him up for a future political comeback.
New York voters puzzle over why Weiner stays in the race despite constant ridicule. The citys tabloids pump out streams of headlines punning on his name while late-night comics have made him a national punch line.
Instead of dropping out, Weiner has embraced the media maelstrom in a calculated gamble that voters would respect his toughness and dedication to their issues.
A new documentary by Stateless Media captures Weiners unorthodox campaign strategy, which sometimes resonated and, other times, fell flat with voters.
Weiners friends say he is setting himself up for a comeback in another race and another year.
Bill Brandt, a close friend of Weiners wife, Huma Abedin, said Weiners campaign will clear the way for a future run for office.

As a dog catcher?
Not sure we want to know about any more of his “come backs”
A comeback after a one year refractory period.
America...What a country!
"Weiner Will Rise Again!"
Why can’t these parasites get a life?
Can’t this A-hole just get a legitimate job?
Hey, it’s New York so you never can tell.
How delusional can they be? (ok, so it’s New York, so maybe) but there’s a reason “ridicule” is so high on the Alinsky list. People HATE being ridiculed and while Weiner himself may be beyond ridicule (or shame or anything else), most of the people who’d be asked to vote for him could not abide that ridicule.
Some temperaments are so addicted to attention that they crave it and pursue it even when it takes the form of ridicule. They don't feel shame or embarrassment like normal people do. When that temperament is blended with a temperament that craves power and control, you get people like Weiner.
He has friends? Probably the best friends money can buy and no others.
New York needs a Weiner that hangs in there!
Is he “prepping” with his right hand or with his left?
Would you hire this clown?
This dick was sitting on a pile of campaign cash. He can spend it like he wants when running for office. The old consultant kickpack, rent some space in his house for campaign work and padded expenses for everything routine. That’s why he’s putting up with the flack.
It’s because democrat voters are so stupid all they do is vote for the most recognizable name with a “(D)” next to it.
Weiner’s next campaign will be funded by Drudge and the NY Post, the money they’d make off the headlines alone would be worth the investment.
I never understood his appeal as a politician, he has always appeared to me as a disrespectful arrogant jerk. Even if I agreed with his politics, I wouldn’t vote for someone like that. Then again, I have no idea how Bloomburg got elected a second and third time.
So Wiener’s going to pop up again later?
He’s going to try to re-erect is career?
"Legit"? NO. "A job"? MSNBC or Al Jazerra would gladly hand Weiner a job.
“.... it will set him up for a future political comeback.”
Fools always get second and third chances in the RAT party.
“The ‘New Weiner’. It’s short, sweet, and everyone wants to see it.”
Snort! Good one!
As in front of a mirror or camera?
Nope, I think a future headline we will see is:
Weiner Pulls Out
Schmuckie Schumer’s protegee...
Say no more.
His opponent may go blind if the wiener is beat.
Gawd..did the Gators ever suck today. Driscoll ain’t QB material. He’s absolutely scared to throw the ball down the field , and Miami just compressed their defense. Well, at least we know now that the season is over..they have ZERO chance of a BCS berth. Coach Boom better go and find hisself a QB for next season, or the swamp creatures are gonna get restlesss.
Glad I didn’t waste any time watching the thugs play, I’m out on football for now.
I check the scores, that’s about the extent of it...not surprised they lost. They’ve got a big bag of nothing on offense.
Fearless prediction: Over the Thanksgiving holiday, Huma will quietly announce that she and Weiner have separated. She will be involved big time in Hillary’s campaign, and there is no way that they will allow Weiner to become a sideshow to that.
Are there any openings for pri*k-photographers?
The entire state of Texas will be watching the Aggies next week..yours will be the ONLY tube in the state not tuned in...
One of our radio hosts up here described how his campaign used something called “Crowd on Demand”, which pays actors $15 per hour to pretend to be supporters. She also said his campaign had asked them about confronting hecklers, but they wouldn’t for liability reasons.
That Cindy Leathers said Weiner admitted what others had already posted here: he had to use the campaign war chest or lose it (he couldn’t keep it). Right now he is just distributing that money to friends; he isn’t seriously running for mayor (or anything else).
I might watch a quarter or so, out of curiosity.
I can think of an infinity of places I’d rather be than in Tony Weiner’s inner circle waiting for a comeback.
The rent-a-crowd company is not going to drum up a lot of business if they are going to spill their guts like this
They are just doing it for spending money; they have no vested interest in the campaign. Weiner will stay in the race until the money is gone either way.
As a bus stop.
I can see him as the bell captain of a Caribbean resort hotel.
It would be perfect for him.
If a Weiner’s “outer circle” is prepped properly, the chances of come-back are minimal ....
Just when you thought Weiner was completely spent, he’s up again and talking about a comeback!
Little prick is persistent.
