Seems he was “writing” his own demise and he probably was told to take a “hike”.

Until Barney Frank, the Kennedy’s, Edward and the rest are held accoutnable, who cares?

Let citizens of South Carolina take care of this.

Of course, we can join the Democrats by blasting another of our own over what the Democrats excuse for themselves.

When do we stop letting the Democrats play us like a cheap fiddle over some perceived Puritan ethic?

Sarah Palin doesn’t have issues with fidelity. She is far and away the Christian’s choice to run against BO in ‘12. We should back her 100% and make this point of her Christian character to everyone we speak with about this latest fiasco, another case where men can’t seem to think with the brain God gave them.

Oops...

So, let me get this straight.

A Sitting Governor ditches his security detail, bags one of their vans, hops in his car, drives to Atlanta from SC, then hops a plane to Argentina, bangs around with his mistress, over the Fathers Day weekend, while his wife and kids were home?

Impeach this slimey hypocrite.

Far cry from Edwards and Kennedy. Then again, Republicans usually can be counted on to fall on their swords while Democrats always just whine how unfair life is to them.

You got that right DakotaRed!

There are plenty of quitters here to anxious to put down a (R).
It’s a given that we hate it when a (R) does something bad but left will take care of that. We don’t need anymore whining. IMO

If you want to put Sanford in the same category as Frank, Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, and John Edwards then I won't disagree.

Perceived Puritan ethic?

Really?

So, the idea that this clown is banging around with his mistress, in a foriegn country, essentially AWOL, is just fine and frigging dandy to you because he’s a Republican?

Did you know, really know not just speculate, that he was having an affair when some of us were trying to stop his crucifixion by sleazy operatives at FR before proven guilty?

No this is actually good, an early cull of the weak reeds. Imagine a primary campaign going into super tuesday where Ensign and this guy were the leading contenders...

He was studying the tango down in Argentina

That stupid SOB. We finally get someone that will stand up to the socialists in Washington and it turns out that he can't contol his pecker.

Oh well, at least he isn't gay. He will, however, be unemployed soon. He might finish out his term, but I would place him in the "unelectable" column now.

This is a terrible day for Ruplican politicians. To add to this scandal, Republican rep Issa is causing the stock market to tank with his serious accusations against Treasury Sec. Bernanke in the BA/Merill acquisition - a huge political mistake! We’ve got to throw these bastards out!

Oh dear, this could not have come at a worse time, the GOP was looking for a new face to represent the future, and Sanford was a rising star, esp with his courageous taking a stand against porkulus. Now the wacko libs are laughing themselves all giddy again. Damn you Sanford and your male needs! why, why, why......

but, I agree with the doublestandard hypocrisies. He needs to be given the same treatment as kennedy, Edwards, and Clinton for goshsakes. And what about Jesse jackson and all his affairs?

Not to mention Larry Sinclair....does anyone dare mention the truth about this?
