Mark Sanford Is a Scumbag
www.politicalcastaway.com ^ | 03 July 09 | Pitcairn

Posted on 07/02/2009 10:15:30 PM PDT by Pitcairn

Look folks. Are we kidding with Mark Sanford? Is this some sort of sick joke, keeping this cad around?

We’ve already gone over this, days ago.

We don’t care how much “love” this man got from his foreign woman or what his financial records look like. The man is scum and needs to leave the South Carolina governor’s mansion right now.

Any man who would have an affair and then tell the world that his lover, not his wife is has “soul mate,” is indeed a scumbag.

Yeah, he’s a scumbag. But it’s up to SC law, legislature and citizens. I can’t imagine them wanting to keep him around, but who knows. These are the same people sending lightfoot Lindsey back to office.

If for real, you are out of your feaking political mind.

He’s a love sick bum. I wish his wife would tell him to take a flying leap. He is no catch...he loses all the way around...and he’ll soon find that out. He has made a complete fool of himself.

So, we should not be worried that an American governor lied and cheated?

If that sort of conduct is not a worry, I wonder as to your own value system.

it is what it is......how many freeper men or women cheat on their spouses, yet consider themselves upright and moral and conservative and patriotic.....

better to have a politician let it all hang out then to drag everyone thru the mud and back.....

some of you people think we need saints to run the govt....we don't.....and we won't find them anyway....

the rats don't eat their own...no matter what...

buddy....we have a communist dictator in the white house, a freaking idiot joining the Senate from Minn, N. Korea rattling sabres and bombs, Iran hanging protestors, our national debt and deficit higher than Mt Mckinley, and we need to worry about a Gov having an affair....one that he admits too....

go back to your dummy board......we all hate what Sanford did but when you rank scum bags, he's way down the list among our politicians.....way down....

I believe he was cleared of any misuse of state funds today. That was of more concern to me than his affair. I don’t have any insight into his home life nor is it any of my business.

I think cheating on your wife is a pretty serious offense.

This is not like looking over someone’s shoulder to see if 2 plus 2 equals 4.

The only reason the American people put up with their “representatives” lying, and cheating and stealing is because people like you think it is “no big deal.”

Well, it is a big deal. And Americans should not have to accept this crap just because it “goes on.”

Yes, people cheat and do not lose their jobs.

However, if I were to run away from my job for a week and not tell anyone where I was, had an affair and used company resources to have the affair, I would likely be fired.

Fair enough. You make a good point. That being said, it is not really fair to say that we now need to dumb our own standards down just because a communist president and those that elected him have done so as well.

Agree?

Sanford is a piece of excrement.

Typical of the dog crap that supposedly "represents" us.

I'd like to spit in his damn face.

So you leave any sense of right and wrong to the states? While I agree with the concept, I am not sure that one can justify flat out lying as the perogative of the states to decide if right or wrong. There has to be some basic code of conduct or we all move back toward the law of the jungle.

For Christ's sake, when will we learn to stop publicly attacking the politicians who more or less (politically speaking), are conservative? Here's a thread I'd like to see in place of this Sanford one: "Barack Hussein Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Dick Durbin, Ted Kennedy, Barney Frank, John Kerry, Eric Holder, John Murtha, Barbara Lee, Maxine Waters, John Conyers, Patrick Leahy, Charles Schumer, John Edwards and most other Democrat politicians are lying, cheating, America-averse, America-hating, quasi-communist, racist, sexist, pro-terrorist, pro-Islamist, anti-US Military, redistributionist, elitist scumbags who represent no one except a small contingent of unproductive far-Left sickos and malcontents; neocommunists, perverts, race-baiters, thieves--and themselves."

Did I miss anything?

I hear you!—these “Dr. Phil” style public confessions make my skin crawl. When you do wrong, (and we ALL do wrong), make amends and seek atonement privately. Personal confessions in front of a camera are creepy, and completely pathetic.

The Bill of Rights never intended that its purview would allow for the complete eradication of all common sense and the basic morals upon which the Founders decided to craft a new nation.

What the Founders failed in was in assuming that the same morals and values and society would still exist without having to write it down on paper.

And Mark Sanford's reign as governor of South Carolina is something that the Founders would certainly not have said was merely “okay” because they did not specifically address fornication and adultury in the Constituion.

The clarification is that if you think Mark Sanford should be saved, you are out of your mind. Akin to the reason that William Jefferson Clinton was impeached so too should Mark Sanford face the reality of his lying and cheating.

Is this too much to ask of American politicans or should we just go the way of valueless Europe and the savages of the Middle East?

Your post is interesting.

The Constitution does not address fornication and adultery. That is in the Bible.

If the good people of South Carolina decide to forgive Sanford, that is their choice. Not the federal governments.

The founding fathers were not “chaste”.

When you get some time, you may want to read the Constitution.

Have a good evening.

No. He is a “Horney” Scumbag.
That only makes him HALF bad.
You also have to understand that while under the influence of being “Horney” you can often become a “Scumbag” by default.

You may want to read the Constitution as well, since there is nothing in there about how men should treat their wives or how they should treat the people they supposedly represent.

This issue has nothing to do with Constitutional legality. This issue has to do with whether an elected official should remain as such without a modicum of moral integrity.

Fine to be “horney.” But be a private “horney” citizen then rather than a governor.

There are plenty of other potential governors out there that need no sink to the lowest common denominator of the society they are supposed to lead toward a higher standard of conduct.

You are giving the other governors just to much credit. "Horney" ALWAY'S overrules higher standard of conduct in politics.

Unless you keep your "Horneyness" at home!

Does it really make any sense to say that lying need be only under oath to be wrong and therefore, then only, grounds to no longer hold public office, kiddo?

I don’t think so.
