Republican Superstar Governor Sanford Admits Affair

June 24, 2009 at 1:13 pm  ·  Category: Culture and Current Events, Politics

After a mysterious five day disappearance, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford admitted to having an affair with a woman in Argentina.

This is a huge disappointment to Republicans who rallied behind Sanford after he asked the Obama administration to spend some of the stimulus money on debt reduction and then refused to take the money when they refused (see, for example, “Why South Carolina Doesn’t Want Stimulus” (subscription required), Mark Sanford, The Wall Street Journal, March 21, 2009).  He had been mentioned as a potential Republican candidate for the 2012 presidential election.

  • He’s an incurable romantic and perhaps in some bazaar way, we could use
    someone with such intense compassion toward the human element of people
    that hardly surfaces in the political arena.
    That noble statement that reads …. ” Love conquers all ” perhaps mostly
    surfaces in the younger set – how fortunate for him to experience such passion
    before the end of life….and how sad that his wife should be subjected to such
    public humility along with his sons…perhaps there’s a lesson to be learned….
    not necessarily with a christian tinge of red hell fire.
    Partnership relationships are commendable between husband and wives but
    without passion, there’s an empty chamber in the heart of all things that must
    be filled to function as human.
    Hooray for the senator who realized the true value of passion and who was able to experience the joy – now he’ll be able to share that gift with his sons so
    they realize the value of romantic love…and perhaps rekindle some spark of
    passion with his wife…if that were ever the base for the relationship – a new
    adventure or perhaps the necessity to move on and experience it with this
    young woman who shares his passion for life together. We should all be so
    If public funds were utilized to branch the distance, I’m sure that issue could
    be resolved with the return of money – root of all evil, almost.
    Actions have consequences – some very positive and some that appear as
    heartbreaking to the viewers who mistook a human being for a God.
    My best to you Senator and your family – What is ment to be will be.
    Don’t wallow in guilt inflicted by those who would gladly have in your place,
    We all have a right to happiness.
