    The vote was more against Nancy Polsi and his democrat opponent rather than what a pervert he is.

    Just proves “the right” is more driven by political ideology than ethics.

    Sounds like Arkansas

    Except Sanford wasn’t banging his intern and then lying about it under oath after.

    @ConserveGov

    And then the big bad repubs impeached him, yet he kept being president!

    Bottom line is South Carolina chose to have this slug lead them into the future. We keep electing people that we probably would not associate with.

    Yet the Liberals only criticize Mark Sanford, but ignore the fact that this opponent has a criminal record and served some time in jail for contempt of court.

    Funny how that works out.

    So your choices are between a philanderer and criminal. How do you choose between those two without wanting to vomit?

    And what we think does not really matter – the choice is the decision of those within the district, and not a single other person’s opinion matters in the grand scheme of things.

    he left his family and his staff and his security detail to fly down to his argentine mistress. when he asked his ex to be part of his campaign, she said no. later, he creates a domestic disturbance with his ex. but, then it is south carolina(charleston), the same area that still doesn’t believe they lost the civil war. the same area where general westmoreland and general mark clark are considered military “geniuses.”

    If he would have run off with a guy, y’all would love him….

    Besides Clinton, Kennedy and company taught us your “private life” doesn’t matter. Did you forget what you preached then??

    I’m just glad he likes girls. Even though that isn’t in style for pols these days.

    Contempt of court is easy to do. Disagree with the judge. But does that make one criminal? I think not.

    Wrong again. (Aren’t you tired of being that way so often?)
    -
    But the voters have chosen so there you have it. Hope he stops philandering now.

    The major objection SHOULD be that he left his office with no notice and no contact information and no idea when or whether he would ever return. That is dereliction of duty. But that seems to not disqualify him for office, in the minds of the voters in SC.

    Just like the voters of the US were given a choice for a vice-presidential candidate who decided to quit being governor after serving just half a term.

    This should not be a partisan issue. If he was my employee and just took off, he would not have a job when he returned home, unless he had a really good, verifiable story. In this instance, such a story could not exist.

    And for those who consider him just a philanderer, remember that he did break into his ex-wife’s house. The fact that he probably was not charged (again, boys will be boys) does not excuse the fact that he was caught breaking and entering.

    There were sixteen Republicans in the primary. Those morons still chose Sanford.

    “There’s a reason he got elected though.”


    Yep. And it has to do with rednecks in South Carolina rejecting family values, honesty, integrity and responsibility.

    From the exit polling I read, it was all (or mostly) name recognition. Few were informed on the issues.

    Either way the folks of South Carolina lost. Which level of moral decay do you want to vote for? Really and truly Colbert-Busch should have won, but it’s more guilt by association. When you can pin the Pelositross around someone’s neck in a Red State it’s pretty much over.
    My sad prediction for 2014 elections. Based on which way ACA goes and the Democratic need for gun control will allow the Republicans to crank up the FUD machine to nucular(Ha!) levels. Red States will be Red and Blue States will be Blue. Again. I will be at the horns of a dilemma yet again this coming election: Hold my nose and vote Repub even though they no longer have a moral leg to stand on or vote Democrat. Then spin the roulette wheel on how hard it will be to fight for the remaining issues I’m allowed to care about before being called a heartless bigoted monster.
