The glaring difference between these three men's scandals and others is that they concern individual wrongdoing. When talking about Murdoch and Atkin's outrageous comments, it has to do with a policy position or attitude affecting half the population on the part of the GOP. There is a difference between individual men's behavior and a party which has taken positions against all women. But then, the GOP doesn't get it.

Obama has not owned up on his own scandals, e.g. Bengazhi, IRS, privacy intrusion, etc. Why would anyone expect him to comment on Weiner et al?

If he DID speak, he would just blame Bush for it anyhow ...

Heh. Pot. Kettle. Black. If there's one constant in the universe it is that no politician of whatever political affiliation will ever be able to reliably keep his pants zipped (or skirt down) or his/her hand out of the cookie jar.

The glaring difference between these three men's scandals and others is that they concern individual wrongdoing. When talking about Murdoch and Atkin's outrageous comments, --------------THe ONLY glaring difference is the party they come from. These three concern ACTIONS of demcorats, while the ones you were outraged about were misspoken words. Most people would agree that Actions are much worse than misspeaking!

"two prominent members of Obama's Democratic Party..." Since when are a disgraced, resigned Congressman and the mayor of San Diego "prominent" Democrats? Only when the conservative media makes them so.
