If Democrats Canít Beat a Confessed Adulterer, What Chance Do They Have?
National Journal ^ | May 9, 2013

Posted on 05/11/2013 2:45:52 AM PDT by SMGFan

The reason, Republicans say and some Democrats acknowledge, is straightforward. Whatever other circumstances might cloud a race, Republicans can still argue that Democratic candidates will be nothing more than stooges for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Sanford made the point frequently in his own campaign, particularly during the race’s final weeks. Most memorably, he held a mock debate with a cardboard cut-out of the Democratic leader. Even the tawdry details of Sanford’s past failed to make the race about him.

All the Dems have to do is work to divide the social conservatives and fiscal conservatives and they win.

Just like every other election.

They didn’t get to cheat this time. ID required to vote gives the dims the disadvantage.

It just could have been that Sanford confessed his sins and took the punishment, unlike Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner et al.

Let us hope that conservatives come out in enough force to ensure ID becomes entrenched.

Sanford debates Nancy Pelosi.

Did Pelosi cause C-B to lose?

“If Democrats Can’t Beat a Confessed Adulterer, What Chance Do They Have?” ALL of the “politically blue” areas of the U.S. and U.S. territories would like to have the realistic opportunity to be able to say the same thing, asap!

Yes, if the GOP would understand that we have the WH and Senate as well.

Run against the Democratic Party!

The Democrat Party is completely bankrupt in respect to morality. There is not an iota of goodness in the entire evil cabal.

It’s true that Mark Sanford did not honor his wedding vows; however, those Democrats and many Republicrats will never honor their oath of office.

Examining Sanford as he stood before voters during this congressional election would indicate that politically he remains unchanged. He is a fiscal conservative. Those he represents will have to evaluate his performance, not the rest of us here.

CONFESSION is key.

The thing was that many women did not see this as adultery as much as a failing marriage, and true love. World of difference.

To start with, they accept the idea that some marriages just don’t work out, and as long as it is an amicable split, it is okay.

But in this case, he obviously loves this woman so much that he went all the way to Argentina to get her. That makes it into a “romantic” relationship, that many women can forgive. As long as he marries her, and promptly.

It is also a study in contrasts, as the woman running against him was pretty odious, deceitful, and made the foolish mistake of thinking early in the campaign that she was so far ahead she could blurt out what she really thought, that was both radical leftist and stupid. Pardon the redundancy.

Good point. This last election (Sanford) has me shaking my head and thinking: “Anyone else notice how bad the democRATs lose when the Chicago “Get out the Vote” and cheat push is not involved?”

Same thing prior to the election.
