I know...I can't imagine how hard it is to raise 4 boys and married 20 years and endless campaigns and the toughness of being a conservative R in the day of Obama socialism and opposing the Federal Government...but things like this are really rough on Christians and Republicans and Fathers in general...but I hate to see this happen


are you fukcing kidding me? so now this is somehow Obama's fault? And it's all part of some big anti-Christian conspiracy?

Good Lord! To all Christians everywhere feel a deep need to be martyrs and never to simply accept that their problems might be of their own creation?
 Quoting: Lapis

calm down. No, this guy opposed the Federal Government in rejecting the stimulus and engaged in a lawsuit about it, and did it in the limelight, I can't imagine the toll something like this takes on a person, but it did take a toll.

As for him being a Christian, I was not accepting his sin but finding compassion for the man.

I did not say there is an anti-Christian conspiracy.

I think he took responsibility for his actions. He said repeatedly that he is wrong.

Re: Gov Sanfords was in South America!
In a stunning confession, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford admitted Wednesday to being "unfaithful" to his wife during a press conference meant to account for his mysterious week-long absence.

"I've let down a lot of people. That's the bottom line," he said. "I've been unfaithful to my wife."

Sanford, who just returned from Argentina, said he developed a "relationship with what started out as a dear, dear friend from Argentina."

The governor "apologized" profusely to his family, his staff and the people of South Carolina.

The first-hand account was meant to settle mounting questions over the governor's whereabouts.

Confusion only intensified Wednesday morning after The State newspaper reported that Sanford had just returned from Argentina, even though his staff claimed the disappearing governor was hiking on the Appalachian Trail a few hours away from the state capital.

Re: Gov Sanfords was in South America!
This is what happens when you go up against the Fed. I retract my earlier disappointment about this being an affair cover story. It makes sense now. Sanford and Spitzer both go up against the Fed, and then both are forced out of politics from affairs.

They want the pattern to be obvious to make a point to anyone else who might challenge them...

He couldn't tell his staff because they don't work for him, they work for Sanford's handlers. They keep an eye on him for them.

Sanford could have done ANY of the things listed so far without disappearing (have a fling, go hiking, take a vacation in South America, etc.). Instead, whatever he had to do he wanted to do w/out the knowledge of those in power. TPTB freaked out and alerted the MSM. Sanford pulled the wool over their eyes. He had to have a reason and I'd love to know what it was. Remember his wife initially said he went away to 'write'.

I think this situation warrants watching...as does the future because *if* he is a rogue Bilderberger then there will be threats against those he loves, made up scandals to discredit him, and a push to get him out of office.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 659821



Called it on page 3. They are out to ruin him. Admit to an affair...OR ELSE.

UPDATE, 2:30 p.m., ET: Well, it doesn't get much crazier than this. Governor Sanford made a stunning admission at his news conference this afternoon that he has been having an extramarital affair with a "dear dear friend" in Argentina. The affair, he said, began "very innocently" but blossomed into "something much more than that."

"I've been unfaithful to my wife," Sanford said. "As a consequence, I hurt her, you all, my wife, my boys, my friends like Tom Davis. I hurt a lot of different folks. All I can say is that I apologize."

Sanford said he will resign as chairman of the Republican Governors' Association.

Original Posting

How quickly they fall. Last week it was Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.); this week it's South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford.

With the bizarre revelation that Sanford was AWOL for five days in Buenos Aires -- and not hiking the Appalachian Trail, as his staff had said -- we think it's fair to say today may mark the death knell for two 2012 Republican presidential hopefuls.

Compared to Sanford, Ensign's crime was so pedestrian: he had an extramarital affair with a campaign staffer who was a longtime friend of his wife and married to another Ensign aide. And the senator came forward to admit the affair only after his ex-mistress's husband approached a TV network to expose the scandal.

Sanford, on the other hand, is guilty of disappearing for days on end without disclosing his whereabouts, leaving his entire state leaderless and his family wondering where Daddy was on Father's Day.

While his wife said she had no clue where her husband was, Sanford's spokesman Joel Sawyer said the governor was hiking the Appalachian Trail. And he stuck to that story even after Sanford's chief of staff reportedly got a call from the governor -- who was really in Argentina -- on Tuesday. So it would appear Sawyer either lied about Sanford's true whereabouts, or was misled and passed that lie along to the public. (Asked this morning at the Atlanta airport why his staff thought he was hiking the Appalachian Trail, Sanford said, "I don't know.")

The Sanford drama is a screenplay that writes itself. Please give us your thoughts on who should play the governor, his wife, his chief of staff and his lieutenant governor, who -- bless his heart, as we say in the Carolinas -- was left completely in the dark.
