Let’s be honest about one thing. I really don’t care one way or another what happens to the marriage of Huma Abedin an Anthony Weiner. I wish them all the best because I never want to see marriages break up, but if anyone is to be forgiven for filing for a divorce, it’s Huma…well, ok…and Hillary. I mean, for cryin’ out loud, Anthony Weiner has a major sex problem (as does Bill), and for Huma to believe it wasn’t there (like Hillary is doing) is just plain wrong. Hillary obviously is in it for convenience. I don’t think that’s the case with Huma.
I’m not here to bash Huma at all on this one. In fact, I thought long and hard about even commenting on this. It’s her business, and she is certainly entitled to do what she needs to do to try and live a semblance of a normal life for her and her son. But I can tell you this…if I had done anything that Anthony Weiner had done, my wife would have bounced me to the curb (and rightfully so) a long time ago. I’m really bamboozled by how these women can forgive a guy for being such a pig. I mean, yes, there has to be something wrong in the wiring upstairs for these guys. But for cryin’ out loud, you don’t help matters by putting up with it. I kind of admire Abedin for having the courage to separate from that idiot, because in this circumstance it’s the right thing to do.
Let’s face it, when you’ve been given three chances to get clean on a sex addiction and you a) lose your job as a congressman over it; b) lose a mayoral race of a major city over it; and c) lose your family over it, I’d say you’ve pretty much hit rock bottom. If Weiner doesn’t want help, that’s his problem…but he has responsibilities to live up to. I mean, he’s a father and a husband, and that means a lot! He was a congressman, and that used to mean a lot. And he treats it like everybody in the country is doing it, which just isn’t true.
In that aspect, I respect Huma Abedin far more than Hillary Clinton. Hillary chose to ignore Bills peccadillos and enable him rather than leave him. It showed that she cared more about what he could do for her in terms of politics than what he brought to the family in terms of stability and love. Some relationships are built that way, and that’s too bad. But I don’t think of Hillary Clinton as a victim in her escapades because she’s helped to bring it on. She was so focused on politics…HER politics that she didn’t do what probably (I’m guessing here) a majority of women in this country would have done if their husband had been guilty of habitually running around on her…which is kicking them out of the house and soaking them in divorce court. But then again, Hillary probably was lying to herself, like she’s lied to the rest of us.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
