Is it okay to laugh at him while feeling terrible for his wife and children? The poor woman must have been worried sick when her husband took off without telling her where he was going, and I can't even imagine what it must have been like for her to find out that he was in Argentina banging another woman.

On the other hand, I feel his actions are worthy of ridicule and scorn.

you're being ridiculous... His political career will be over in 2010 anyway so why would I care. 

Well, you're also the type to think that any Republican will go down to Obama in 2012 so why not really dirty them up in the process?

This was Phil's response when I said he had an affair.  Will this a-hole shut the FU once and for all?  I've had enough of his crap and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Uh...what the hell does that prove? Wow. What a way to totally spin what was said!

I never said it wasn't an affair. I never took objection with your prediction of an affair. I said I had a problem with you taking pleasure in that potential fact and saying it was an affair because they want it to be true. Let's post the entire quote for everyone...


I really don't see any reason to believe this is an affair.

Could it be that certain people want it to be an affair? No, people aren't that nasty in politics...

That's not me denying it is an affair; that's me saying some people would hope for it because it would damage him in 2012 and people like Eraserhead (who said "How hard are Obama and Axelrod laughing right now?") proved it.

So will you shut the fuck up for once?

"This is Gold Jerry... GOLD!"

Yeah, real classy to cheer for a mans family being broken up. Jerkoff.

Hmm, why do I feel like you'd probably have a different reaction if this happened to a liberal?

Um, no fool.

Yeah, I'm sure you were real distressed over Clinton's family, jackass.

He didn't have to be distressed but that doesn't mean he was cheering and laughing about it, jackass.

I'm not laughing or cheering, you clown.

I never said you were.

I am... I am cheering and laughing. I think that its hilarious the double standard that exists among most Republicans (though not most on this board) that saying something and doing the opposite is not disqualifying for public office. If Sanford actually believed the dreck he was spewing about Christian values, he would not have abandoned his family (over father's day), his staff and his state to "break off" and affair with an Argentinian. Even if I credit him with infidelity as a human flaw, he could have ended the affair with a phone call or e-mail. No, he only cared about himself. He couldn't have given two spits less about his four boys, his wife, his devoted staff, and his responsibilites to the 601,868 South Carolinians who voted for him.

Now he's mournful, now he invokes Jesus' name. Bull. He is no Christian, he knew he was violating his vows, his role as a father, and his oath of office.

So I laugh. I laugh in the faces of those who wanted Clinton's head, but now shed a tear for this man's marriage. Clinton never went around preening about his family values. He might have been a cheat, but he was no hippocrite. This clown is both.

When did Sanford ever get preachy about this stuff? As I said elsewhere, he was always seen as more libertarian.

I'm not defending him at all. He's a fool. I don't like what he did. However, there's no double standard on my part. I want him to resign not because of the affair but because of the lie and neglecting his duties.

Clinton lied under oath. I don't take joy in what happened to his family just as I don't take joy in this but I feel that both should have been removed from office for their lies (and for neglecting duties as Sanford has).

And it's "hypocrite," my friend. And, again, I don't know that Sanford was ever the preachy type so stop beating that drum.

from what I can gather he never explicitly stated that the affair was with a woman.

LOL

Why I'm worthy of contempt? Your posts here still don't prove that you weren't hoping for it to be a scandal so shut the fuck up. All I said was that some people might say it was an affair and hope it was true to damage him politically. You said you didn't care because he wouldn't win. I said some people might still want to see him as damaged as possible and the posts of some in this thread prove that.


You bumped those posts to make it seem like I said it wasn't an affair. Wrong. You bumped my posts and took them totally out of context. Don't lecture me about shutting up and how I'm worthy of contempt.

Now that you mention it, that perma-tan is pretty suspicious.

it sounds like he told his wife actually from the article im reading.
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/25/us/25sanford.html?_r=1
"Only later did the governor reveal that he had told his wife and her parents several months earlier. He said that “in a formal sense,” he and his wife were not separated."


also im calling barbour having a gay sex affair with rush just to give everybody a nice image to think of.

Scratch an evangelical Republican politician, find a lying pervert. Such is life.

I think while Sanford may be boneheaded, he might be a little better at conducting an affair.

Guess not.

Are you kidding... He might not have been an evangelical? Half of his opening remarks were about faith and the lords laws, blah blah blah. Even if he didn't run on family values per se, he certainly was Jesusing it up today.

Also, I misspelled hypocrite a moment ago. I apologize to my wife, my cats, and the state of Wisconsin for my hasty typing and my mishandling of the English language, to which I owe so much.

Then that means he's just a phoney. He never really focused on that stuff before.

He wanted to have the (national) reputation of being focused on economic issues, but you better believe he ran on the typical Jesus Platform back in South Carolina.

I don't think any politician in South Carolina, much more a Republican, can go very far without pandering the James Dobson crowd.

Sanford libertarian? His voting record says differently: http://www.ontheissues.org/Mark_Sanford.htm
