NYP: Clintons Furious At Comparison To Weiners

From the New York Post:

Bill and Hillary Clinton are ‘livid’ at comparisons to Weiner’s sexcapades and Huma’s forgiveness

By FREDRIC U. DICKER | July 29, 2013

EXCLUSIVE – Bill and Hillary Clinton are angry with efforts by mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner and his campaign to compare his Internet sexcapades — and his wife Huma Abedin’s incredible forgiveness — to the Clintons’ notorious White House saga, The Post has learned.

“The Clintons are upset with the comparisons that the Weiners seem to be encouraging — that Huma is ‘standing by her man’ the way Hillary did with Bill, which is not what she in fact did,’’ said a top state Democrat.

We can see their point. After all, when it came to having affairs, Bill walked the walk, while Weiner just talked the talk.

And we also understand how this is an insult to Hillary, too. After all, Hillary didn’t just ‘stand by her man.’ Hillary went on national TV numerous times and lied her head off about Bill’s affairs. Even going so far as to at one point claim they were just the creation of a ‘vast rightwing conspiracy.’

So, really, Weiner and Huma’s behavior can’t hold a candle to the Clintons.

Weiner and his campaign aides have explicitly referred to the Clintons as they privately seek to convince skeptical Democrats that voters can back Weiner despite his online sexual antics — just as they supported then-President Bill Clinton in the face of repeated allegations of marital betrayals.

"Allegations"?

“The Clintons are pissed off that Weiner’s campaign is saying that Huma is just like Hillary,’’ said the source. “How dare they compare Huma with Hillary? Hillary was the first lady. Hillary was a senator. She was secretary of state.”

Are they offended because Hillary’s humiliation was far greater?

A longtime Hillary aide and Clinton friend, Abedin’s surprisingly unequivocal support of her husband after his bombshell admission Tuesday that he engaged in salacious online sexting well after he resigned in disgrace from Congress in 2011 left the Clintons stunned, continued the source.

“Hillary didn’t know Huma would do this whole stand-by-your-man routine, and that’s one of the reasons the Clintons are distancing themselves from all this nonsense,’’ the source said.

And never mind that other reports say that Hillary has probably been advising her.

In the view of many Democrats, the Weiners have also alluded more subtly to the Clintons. For instance, Abedin, with her husband at her side, declared last week, “Our marriage, like many others, has had its ups and its downs.’’

“Who didn’t think Huma was referring to the Clintons when she said that?’’ asked another prominent Democrat.

We thought she was just making a sly sexual reference. But, then again, everything from the Weiners sounds like a sly sexual reference.

Worried about the potential impact on Hillary’s likely run for president in 2016, the political power couple has begun aggressively distancing itself from the crippled mayoral contender, according to sources.

Have they asked their close friend and benefactor, Jack Rosen, to throw the Weiners out of his $3.3 million dollar Park Avenue apartment, where they seem to be living rent free?

Meanwhile, at least one prominent Hillary Rodham Clinton political operative was described as close to “going public’’ with a sharp criticism of Weiner — in order to send the message that the Clintons, fearing longtime damage to Hillary, want him out of the mayor’s race…

The only thing the Clintons are mad about is that this will remind everyone of Bill’s ‘bimbo eruptions’ and hurt Hillary’s Presidential chances. But they don’t have to worry. The news media love Bill for his little peccadillos. And they admire Hillary for lying about them so brazenly.
