Weiner ObamaPresident Obama says if he were in Anthony Weiner's position, "I would resign."
In an interview with NBC's Ann Curry, the president called Weiner's conduct "highly inappropriate" and said the embattled New York congressman had "embarrassed himself" and his family. But he admitted it's ultimately up to Weiner and his constituents to determine whether the lawmaker should remain in office.
"I can tell you that if it was me, I would resign. Because public service is exactly that: It's a service to the public," Obama said. "When you get to the point where, because of various personal distractions, you can't serve as effectively as you need to at the time when people are worrying about jobs and their mortgages and paying the bills, then you should probably step back."
