COLUMBIA, S.C. -- COLUMBIA, S.C. - South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford declared his Argentine mistress his soul mate Tuesday but said he is committed to reconciling with his wife in hopes of saving his family and what is left of his political career.

Sanford, who also admitted meeting his lover more times than he had previously claimed, told The Associated Press in emotional interviews that he "crossed lines" with a handful of other women during 20 years of marriage.

But he said he never went as far as he did with Maria Belen Chapur, the woman at the center of the scandal that has derailed his once-promising political future.

Saw this at his first news conference, he was like a smitten puppydog.

OMG..just shut up (I mean Gov. Sanford, not the poster).

and this guy was our great hope for 2012?
Note to all freepers: Never fall in love with a politician (ideologically or otherwise).

When the news about his disappearance first broke, I knew right away that he is not ready for prime time. Even the best scenario (he just went off and allowed the story to emerge), would have shown his lack of media skills. Still, a lot of freepers defended him (”no big deal if governor takes off and disappears..who cares”). People can be blind to Messiah’s problems and allow this sort of weirdo to get the nomination.

Never worship any politician.

The guy is a delusional creep and needs to step down.

More like “An Officer and a Gentleman”, when the guy drops out of Flight School, only to realize that the only reason his girlfriend was with him was because she expected to marry a “Navy Aviator.”

Exactly what I was thinking. As soon as he is free, he will discover that she has several ‘soul-mates’ he is in competition with. The thrill being gone for her, does he really think she will want to hang around with a washed-up politician that can’t show his face in public? A guy that owes a ton in child support and alimony? Boy, is he dumb.

so much for presidential timber. if he can be reduced to a pathetic quivering mass because of a love affair, i’d hate to think of him manning the nuclear codes when she threatened to leave him.

Does he have any idea how this is impacting his wife and kids? I hope she dumps his sorry a$$ pronto. (Maybe he’s too much of a coward to leave on his own.)

King Edward VIII did it

Because he was found out to be a Nazi sympathizer.

Sanford’s life is the equivalent of a hyper man working madly to break through a door to reach another room only to find the new room smaller and lesser.

As he keeps breaking through doors into smaller rooms he will discover the cramp-mental-atmosphere of hell.

“so much for presidential timber.”

For him it was all about the wood.

"First rule of holes, Mr. Sanford, is to quit digging."

First rule of holes is to not be one. This guy is a jerk, I pity his wife if she takes him back!

I can't imagine my husband saying that his mistress is his soul mate but, will you take me back? Oh brother!

Then he needs to MAN UP, resign, and go be with this soulmate, and stop humiliating his wife and kids. imagine those poor boys having to see their father make a horses @$$ out of himself on a daily basis. he should be locked in a windowless room with those 4 kids and have them vent their feelings to him. make him face what his idiocy has wrought on his boys.

Once again, Sanford validates what I’ve been saying about him for the last 7 years. Man I feel vindicated. LOL
