Why Do Men Like Anthony Weiner Take Such Stupid Risks?

All men love a good thrill, but why are politicians willing to take such great risks to get one?

And herein lies the problem. Many of these individuals are so caught up in their egos and their power trips that they don’t care. It’s almost a catch me if you can mentality. The excitement of the game is so enticing that they don’t consider the consequences.

There is also a theory that many of these individuals suffer from poor self-esteem and low self-worth. In fact it’s one of the reasons they go into politics in the first place. Because they don’t feel good about themselves they use power and stature as a drug. The problem is that the more they get, the more the more they want and need. Eventually they realize that the drug does not provide what they are looking for. That’s when they crash and burn.


I believe it is at this point that these individuals unconsciously set themselves up. What kind of sane and intelligent individual would think that, in this day and age, they could get away with this type of behavior for so long?

I read a study years ago that said these individuals are so caught up in internal turmoil and guilt that they put themselves in position to eventually get caught.

Think about it. What kind of conscious, rational human being would use such reckless and irresponsible behavior and seriously think they would never get caught. In this day and age? C’mon. Let’s be real.

Growing up my dad taught me, “You make your bed, you sleep in it.”

I don’t feel sorry for the Anthony Weiners, the Tiger Woods or the Arnold Schwarzeneggers of the world. I feel sorry for all those who have loved and supported them over the years who now must suffer the embarrassment and consequences from their actions.
