Sabato: Sanford vs. Colbert Busch: A Very “Special” Election (Race is a toss-up)
http://www.centerforpolitics.com ^ | May 2, 2013 | Kyle Kondik,

Posted on 05/03/2013 11:09:18 AM PDT by NKP_Vet

A former Republican governor of a deeply Republican state is running for a deeply Republican U.S. House seat, but he is best known for claiming to be walking the Appalachian Trail while he was actually visiting his mistress in Argentina, and he has a court date two days after next Tuesday’s special election because he allegedly trespassed on his ex-wife’s property. His Democratic opponent has never run for office and would be totally unknown, except that her brother is one of the nation’s most popular comedians.

They aren’t called special elections for nothing.

KEYWORDS:
With all of Sanford's baggage he is still 1000 times better than a leftist Obama rubber stamp that believes in murdering babies on demand and sodomite "marriage".

Tough race.

Idiot republican (how the heck did he win the primary anyways?) vs idiot democrat who see NO spending problem in DC and NO issues giving amnesty to illegals.

I would probably vote for Colbert when I die and live in Philly. She is at least on the record against banning guns.

I agree, and of course I hope he wins, but was there no one else to run from the R side?

This race reminds me of the Iran/Iraq war. You hope both sides lose.

Those of us actually living here want Sanford in but many Freepers don’t and show us just how we will end up with another liberal, commie democrat in the next presidential election. You people want pure and perfect candidates which means you’ll never get what you want. I simply will vote for the democrat to lose!

Sanford is going to win by at least 15 points. Two reasons:

1. The GOP base, after several weeks, will start to come home.

2. Going against the conventional wisdom, Democrat turnout will be very low, because the majority of Democrats are psychologically incapable of voting for a Busch..

Yup. Having principles is great and all until they cost you politically.

How again are the two parties different?

<><><><><<>

So you will no longer use morality as a hammer against the other party?

Pure and perfect is a far cry from where Sanford sits. But it seems you think asking a GOP candidate not to lie to everyone around him (staff, family, voting public) while flying out of the country to hang with his mistress is a bridge too far.

I’m a Marylander, so my opinion is worthless in SC.

I tend not to trust folks caught in baldfaced lies. Hard to vote for them under those circumstances.

God bless you!!! Your common sense prevails. Any conservative, any Republican, that votes for Colbert-Busch is not wrapped too tight. She is just a lap dog for Pelosi and Obama, plus a lock step liberal. left wing Democrat!!! As for affairs, how about FDR, Thomas Jefferson, Bill Clinton, DDE, JFK, Ted Kennedy, John Edwards, to name a few!!! I simply say....let he that is without sin cast the first stone!!! This election is important. Sanford must win it!!! The fact is Sanford won two primaries to get where he is today. He is the choice of the rank and file Republican/Conservative voters. SC-1 voters, don’t be fooled or misled by left-wing Obamabot pundits or naysayers. Sanford for congress next Tuesday in SC-!

I agree with you 100%. Mainly because I am a Mississippian living in Arizona, so I am used to being lied to by politicians. I keep looking for an honest one, but when you find one and they get elected, they never last more than one or two terms. I think they leave in disgust.

****was there no one else to run from the R side?****

The there were several conservatives who ran.

That was the problem. There were too many of them. Their votes were split amongst themselves, allowing Sanford to stay competitive.

The same thing happened with Romney. Too many conservatives splitting the vote allowing him to easily win the primaries.

Keeping the Second Amendment in effect and closing the borders and stopping illegal aliens from becoming citizens and adding 40 million new parasites to welfare... how important is it in stopping those things?

Exactly my point LLS, though I am guilty of making the point rather obliquely.

There are political considerations at work here in the Sanford case that outweigh his lack of character, honesty and integrity. And the political considerations will, except in really egregious cases, outweigh everything else.

The seat is more important than who holds it, as long as who holds it is politically reliable.

“As for affairs, how about FDR, Thomas Jefferson.......”

Jefferson was out of office and an old man, and a widower when the supposedly affair with the mullato slave commenced.
There are reputable historians that say it was his brother who had the affair, not Jefferson himself. Liberals have been trying for years to tarnish the reputation of this great man.

You answered to me but I didn’t post that bit. Having studied that subject, I did find it interesting.

Yeah me neither. I have been voting 40 years and I have never cast a vote for a rat and I never will. I certainly hope that I can have someone to actually vote FOR in 2016.
