Why Would Huma Abedin Stand by Anthony Weiner?
COMMENTARY | The train wreck that is Anthony Weiner just may have an 11th hour derailment. The congressman, caught sending lewd text messages and photos to women, just found out that his wife, Huma Abedin, is pregnant with their first child. Abedin is standing by her man, according to Yahoo! News.
It probably won't be enough to prevent Weiner's resignation. Politico reports House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has called for a thorough investigation into Weiner's behavior. More sexting reports are coming to light. However, Huma sounds like a great gal to have in your corner when you've screwed up. I have to give her a lot of credit; it would not be an easy decision to make.
The Republicans will use the Weiner scandal as a political tool. Weiner didn't send X-rated texts and pictures because he is a Democrat any more than Arnold Schwarzenegger slept with his housekeeper because he is a Republican. Cheaters cheat because they have character flaws. Having power and prestige makes them more attractive, but they also fall harder and make a bigger splash.
The Times article "Why Powerful Men Behave Badly" explains Weiner well. For powerful men, sex becomes a status symbol, a power tool, part of "the job." Along with doctors, lawyers, teachers, police officers and celebrities, politicians have an elevated clout level not always merited. They get dazzled by their own light and believe that they are invincible.

Sometimes its hard to be a woman
Giving all your love to just one man
You’ll have bad times
And he’ll have good times
Doing things that you don’t understand
But if you love him you’ll forgive him
Even though he’s hard to understand
And if you love him
Oh be proud of him
‘Cause after all he’s just a man
Because she has more honor than he does?
I don’t know if that’s true, but I can’t imagine people having LESS honor than Weiner.
There are two possibilities. One: She loves him and Two: He is her ticket to fame and fortune.
I can’t think of any other reasons unless he has blackmail material on her. If he does, she probably has even more on him.
Because the Clintons still want her to.
‘Cause she doesn’t know where she’d ever find another Weiner?
Why Would Huma Abedin Stand by Anthony Weiner?
So she won’t get knocked off her feet when the wind picks up.
These questions make John and Elizabeth Edwards come to mind for me.
‘Cause she’s a “One Weiner Woman.”
And he’s a (beat) “One Weiner Ma-ann.”
I think I gave a pretty reasonable answer to this yesterday.
It's important to remember that Huma Abedin did not marry Anthony Weiner. She married Anthony Weiner (D-NY), and will do whatever it takes to keep him in office even if it means constructing a fictional "happy marriage" with him and humiliating herself in public.
Once his political career ends, she'll drop him like a pair of old socks and the sham marriage will reach the end of the tracks. See Tipper Gore, Elizabeth Edwards and Maria Shriver as perfect examples of how these craven, pathologically ambitious losers operate.
“Why Would Huma Abedin Stand by Anthony Weiner? “
Because he is a fag and she is Hillary’s lesbo smack.
Nothing right about HIM, and his wife.
No way, no how.
It’s cover for Hillary’s girlfriend.
My Weiner takes the mo-nin train
he works from nine till five and then
he whips his I-phone out and then
you don' wanna hear a-bout it...
A Saudi muslim woman working in the State Department at that high of a level?
I guess we don’t have to worry about national security matters any more — they have all been sold to the highest bidder.
Omar Abedin: "This is an outrage! It's bad enough that she's been impregnated with that kosher sambool. What must we do to protect the family's honor?"
Mohammed Abedin: "I think we should cut off anything that appears in one of those photos."
For power and money. Once he quits, she will leave him. I don’t think she is standing by him. I think she is forcing him to make statements that embarrass him. There is no other reason for him to make public statements that shame him even more. He could have laid low.
If Tony Weiner were my nameOK, I'll admit that one needs some work.
Would you still love me?
Answer me "Babe, yes I would
Till Hillary told me it was OK to toss you into the garbage disposal..."
That was my impression. When I first heard it was Huma who was reportedly his wife,...isn’t that the same woman Hillary had in her entourage as a reported lesbian lover for several years?
OK. I know this is really connecting dots that might not exist.
But isn’t it convenient for her to announce her pregnancy now? Wouldn’t it be convenient for a stress related miscarriage?
I am not hoping that happens. But I just keep thinking of who she works for.
