The White House fired a shot at Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) last night, suggesting he should have "manned up" and run for New York City Mayor against Michael Bloomberg.

The aide was responding to Weiner's comments that President Obama should have campaigned more eagerly for Democrat Bill Thompson, who lost by a much smaller margin than many expected.

"Maybe Anthony Weiner should have manned-up and run against Michael Bloomberg," the White House aide shot back.

Weiner had pondered a run against Bloomberg but bowed up months ago. Weiner reportedly was wary of facing Michael Bloomberg's spending avalanche.
