First of all, President Obama was asked (and hounded) the question, he answered it in a responsible way. Nobody is talking about the law here, just on supposed ethics. Yes, you can argue what Weiner did was between him and his wife (and girls that received pics), but it is out in the open and it will effect the way he governs (and how others are around him). Obama is trying to save face for country and Party and score points - like any other politician. Don't get the keywhole or religous eparch arguments. This is out in the public. Blame Breithardt(sp?) or Weiner himself for this being out in the open.
