Obama is correct in that Weiner should resign. Not sure how I feel about the President singling a member of Congress to 'attack', even though he is obviously (obvious at least to everyone but Weiner) right.
"President Obama waded into the debate over whether embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner should resign from office on Monday, telling NBC’s Ann Curry “I would resign” if he was in the New York Democrat’s place.
“I think he’s embarrassed himself, he’s acknowledged that, he’s embarrassed his wife and his family,” Obama said in an interview with Curry in North Carolina.. “Ultimately there’s going to be a decision for him and his constituents. I can tell you that if it was me, I would resign.”
Obama’s statement comes just hours after White House press secretary Jay Carney said that what Weiner had done was “inappropriate” but stopped short of calling for his resignation."
