SC's ex-Gov. Sanford clears hurdle in comeback bid
Associated Press ^ | Apr 2, 2013 10:58 PM (ET) | BRUCE SMITH

Posted on 04/02/2013 8:57:34 PM PDT by DJ MacWoW

"I want to thank my God," Sanford said. "I used to cringe when somebody would say I want to thank my God because at that point I would think this is getting uncomfortable. But once you really receive God's grace and (have) seen it reflected in others you stop and acknowledge that grace and the difference He has made in my life and in so many lives across this state and across this nation."

TRULY honoring God would mean that he honored and kept the covenant that he made with his wife instead of following his hormones!

I wonder how long “Evita” would have stayed around if Mark didn’t get back into politics?

I’m working on some poetry, so inspired am I at this disgusting turn of events. It’s sung to the tune of “ the Girl from Ipenema” ...but it’s called “The Whore From Argentina.”

So since God forgave him, he should be re-elected. Just like death row inmates. Just because God forgives them doesn’t mean they won’t be executed.

Well the Republicans of the district have chosen him by a wide margin so that’s that. The time for whining has come and gone, no one capable of beating him even bothered to run, obviously.

Support him or allow liberal scumbag “comedian” Steven Colbert’s sister to use hollywood money to win the seat for Obama.

I just hope his spurned ex-wife doesn’t make trouble.

More than half of them cheat on their wives (and the female pols on their husbands) I’d wager. He is just of the ones that got caught. He’s about a billion times more trustworthy with our tax dollars at least than some marxist pig.

Exactly. And we have no idea if God forgave him nor what he asked forgiveness for. That’s between Sanford and God. God may know his heart but we only have Sanfords actions to judge him by and it’s not looking good.

I don’t live in SC but......I wouldn’t trust someone to represent me when he couldn’t be trusted by his family. If you treat those that you “care for” shabbily you won’t treat a stranger any better.

Mark will support anything that Maria la Puta wants, as long as she takes her clothes off first. Face it. You can’t claim any moral high ground when all you have to work with is a horn dog and his whore.

Why are people in South Carolina so stupid. He needs to redeem himself, and how does one do that? By bucking the conservatives and supporting the left. If he gets elected, he will do a lot of damage.

2 years of damage vs. 20+ years of damage. A person who needs to redeem himself like this is likely to become an abortion proponent.

Women aren’t supporting Markie. It’s men who fantasize about illicit sex like the former guy is getting and identify with him. They get to cheat vicariously. Mark would do anything la Puta wants if she just keeps taking off her clothes, he’s already proven that he cares nothing for anything or anyone except his personal gratification, sexual and political and otherwise. I wouldn’t trust him around the unborn or born if he wanted to get his rocks off.

Years ago, I would occasionally ponder what I would do if confronted with the situation in which I had to choose whether or not to vote for a candidate who ostensibly has a decent, conservative voting record, but also proved to be a degenerate scuzzball in his personal life.

I don’t really wonder about this anymore. With the country in rapid cultural and moral decay, and continuing its swirl down the toilet, the importance of “character” is something I actually find myself valuing more and more. I would NEVER give my vote to such a lowlife like Sanford. No matter how vile the opposing candidate. I’d just sit out the election.

The main reason to not support him would be that he is a liberal, and the hope would be that a strong conservative would beat him.

You have two tasks here.

Not my district. But I can donate. Colbert may be a nitwit, but she’s not a whore. and it’s less than two years and maybe the hooker will have taken Mark by then, for all he’s worth and hell go away and not show his pathetic face in South Carolina again!

Well I respect you points of view friends but some things in my opinion are way more important than some guy cheating on his wife, which is an extremely common occurrence and has been for all time.

Letting hollywood liberals steal a South Carolina house seat from us because of all things adultery, is too much irony for me to bare.

Anything that puts a smile on Pelosi and Obama’s faces is too much for me to bare. I see can that piece of garbage Colbert doing his little mock conservative Bill O’Reilly character on his little TV show pretending to be upset that his liberal sister won all the while winking at his audience full of lily White college idiots who voted to reelect their cool Black President and think Comedy Central is the place to come to for real news. I can see and it’s enough to make wanna put my fist through the TV. I can see feminazis crowing about girl power, a cheating husband defeated! Yay. Another woman elected, a woman who supports killing little girls in the womb. All because Mark Sanford put his thing some where. No.

We’re in war, being fought with ballots instead of bullets. If Truman can kill a bunch of Japanese women and children, Freepers can support Mark Sanford.

I don’t mean to be dramatic here but the casual “oh well just let the democrat win then” vibe I’m picking up in this thread is DANGEROUS, very dangerous.

I’m betwixt and between:
I believe in God’s infinite grace, so I don’t want to disparage Sanford’s claim of redemption. I would have preferred he found his redemption prior to his infidelity, and barring that, leaving the object of his unfaithful lusts and reconciling with his wife.

This is a bit unseemly to me; but I hope he truly has worked out his salvation with fear and trembling.

There are a lot of Democrat women in politics who are neither hookers nor whores. Look at the damage they have done, and continue to do. But one more couldn’t hurt much could she?

It’s more than adultery....it’s a guy abandoning his post to engage in said adultery, while serving his constituents.

If it were an employee of mine doing that, I’d not only fire him on the spot, but I’d make damn sure nobody else would hire him.

I don't have to prove anything.

Sanford is an immoral pig. Voters abandoning their principles doesn't change that nor does it make them "winners". They just wallow in slop with their "choice". Lay down with dogs, get up with fleas.

So, now Sanford has sunk to an even lower low, playing the “God” card to tell us that we shouldn’t judge him because God has forgiven him. In other words, Sanford is using God to get what he wants and further his political goals. Kinda like how he used his wife to get what he wanted and further his political aspirations. In the final analysis, the man is nothing more than a user. He disgusts me even more than the Democrat he is running against.

Sanford did more than humiliate his faithful wife and betray his four sons for some cheap South American poon. He went AWOL and tried to make me pay for his lay overs in buenos aires. He made a laughingstock of conservatives all over America. He's always been a Gigolo, too. Jenny paid for his campaigns, kind of like John McCain had Cindy's dad pay for his.

I'm past being a loyal republican so you can indulge in a vicarious sexual escapade. I'm a conservative. Sanford should have had the good taste to slink away and shag the whore who meant so much to him, instead he must flaunt her before his kids and make me watch, too. I know a faithless heart when I see one, and a cold blooded narcissist who is dying for the limelight.

Because Sanford has so misbehaved, he must become a liberal on social issues. I'm sure Maria la Puta will call the shots, and if she likes abortion and SSM Markie must, too. He just wants attention, and he badly needs a job.

Actually Gingrich didn't. His wife asked for the divorce.

Jackie Gingrich Cushman: About Newt’s ‘deathbed divorce’

However Sanford is well on his way on that road.

The thing that I never understand is if he cheated on his wife what makes this one think he won't cheat on her? Because he "loves" her? Didn't he "love" his wife when he married her?
