SC Governor Mark Sanford Admits Affair with Argentinian Woman … From Missing to Wishing He was Missing … Appalachian, Argentina, Lost in Translation
BLAME IT ON RIO … OR IS IT ARGENTINA?
Mark Sanford, from Governor of South Carolina, to potential Presidential candidate to disgrace. At this point Sanford will be lucky to stay the Governor of SC after he admitted an affair with an Argentinian woman at a disastrous press conference yesterday. Maybe Sanford should have stayed in hiding after that debacle called a presser.
Really, Argentinia & Appalachian Trail are this close to each other.
Lost in translation … Who knew that a hike along the Appalachian Trail would translate to Argentinian Tale, or is it tail? One could have suspected that when the story came out of Sanford’s missing was a result of his hiking exploits, only to have his vehicle be found at the Atlanta airport, it was easy to suspect that something was amiss at the Circle K.
It is unbelievable that a man in Sanford’s position would act in such a selfish and reckless manner to his wife, his family and his state. Michelle Malkin aptly puts it … BASTARD! Hot Air makes a good point on their lesson; however, I have to correct them on one detail. This does not pertain if you are a Democrat and your name is Bill Clinton.
The lesson: If you want to have a career in national politics, keep it in your pants. If you want to conduct affairs, stay out of politics. If you use your public office to lie to your constituents and your family, you deserve everything coming your way. No sniveling
One thing is for certain, Mark Sanford must go.
It has nothing to do with the affair per se, just like when President Bill Clinton was asked to resign. It’s not and never about the sex, that is between you, your wife, your family and your God. You must go because you were derelict in your duties as the Governor of the great state of South Carolina. Of course, the media will make it all about the sex and the affair as that is lazy journalism that sell. Sadly, this situation is about much more.
Who in the hell goes missing for days and does not tell anyone where one is or have at least the Lieutenant Governor running the show? Instead, you just go AWOL? No different than when Bill Clinton was in office. However, in his case, Clinton’s affair actually violated employment laws as well as his perjuring himself.
So Democrats and liberals, don’t be so quick to be gleeful and point the finger back at Mark Sanford. Your boy, Bill Clinton acted in a similar and much more disgraceful manner, yet he stated in office and all of you made him a hero. President Bill Clinton was a “rascal” and according to many other accounts with woman, might have been much worse. However, so is Mark Sanford a rascal. In the end, his selfishness, stupidity and weakness will most likely cost Sanford everything.
In the end, much like in the case of Elizabeth Edward’s with the John Edward’s scandal, Sanford’s wife Jenny comes out looking like the hero … Sanford’s wife told him to leave ‘to maintain my dignity’. The statement from Jenny Sanford:
This trial separation was agreed to with the goal of ultimately strengthening our marriage. During this short separation it was agreed that Mark would not contact us. I kept this separation quiet out of respect of his public office and reputation, and in hopes of keeping our children from just this type of public exposure. Because of this separation, I did not know where he was in the past week.
I believe enduring love is primarily a commitment and an act of will, and for a marriage to be successful, that commitment must be reciprocal. I believe Mark has earned a chance to resurrect our marriage.
For his actions and disregard for the office of the Governor of the State of SC, Sanford really must go. It saddens me as I had supported many of his policies. Hopefully, this man can concentrate on his family and his wife and fix what in the end is and should be most important to us. Politics is not important, relationships and family are. The liberal media sharks are in the water as a Republican has fallen from grace … however … Sanford should step down and do the right thing. Democrats, remember this for the future when one of your gets caught not doing their job as well. As you certainly had no issue with such events in the past when it came to your own.

He needs to do the honorable thing and resign and get his life in order before thinking about getting into politics again. It’s a shame he had to let something like this ruin his chances at running for President.
I’m sure the left will jump all over this; but they better be careful about throwing stones: i.e. John Edwards and Bill Clinton and most importantly, Ted Kennedy AMONG others.
It’s rampant among ALL politicians on BOTH sides.
In my estimation, this was a brilliant move by Sanford to take the limelight away from Obama’s “failure to explain (according to ABC)” healthcare destruction of America!
This is actually good for the GOP because they are weeding out on their own those who do and do not deserve a shot at 2012.
This is a sad state of affairs, indeed.
Human frailty is, it seems, the only bi-partisan attribute in the realm of politics.
Let’s cover the state of our national security more(Iran, North Korea, economy, ad infinitum) and sexual transgressions of politicians(of both parties)less. Methinks we will be better off if we do.
SIX interchangeable words with the same meaning:
2. religious right
3. family values party
You want to criticize Christians with a name like ‘Allah’?
You got a lotta balls, boy!
Republican men usually like the boys – the shock is that Sanford was cheating on his wife with a woman.
That’s very unusual for a Republican.
What isn’t unusual is that another fake republican moralist goes down in flames.
Broke Back Argentina?
…and I got two words for you, yoyo…
#8 – haha. but he opened the closet in the 80′s.
I’m talkin’ the wide stance toe tappers a la Larry Craig
Michael Jackson is dead – straight to hell for him.
Sanford’s gotta be dancin’ the moon walk – he’s now off the front page.
#9 & #10
Mea Culpa, should know better than to have a “Frank” discussion with a yoyo.
#4, you forgot one … how bout go screw?
I guess it is ok to not be the family values party?
Funny, I do not hear Dems say they are for pornography, wife swapping and rape. Many on both sides, including Independents make reference to family values.
Hell, Obama is for traditional marriage.
Obviously, you are not a Christan or you would know that man is flawed. You ignorant non-religious people just have no clue. No Christan says they are perfect. To lead a Christan life is to try to walk the path of Jesus knowing that one will most likely slip up along the way.
The power of forgiveness and repentance is another aspect that is lost on you.
It is not hypocritical to try and be devout and fail, that is sad. Personally, Mark Sanford needs to re-evaluate his life and learn what is truly important to him.
its funny to see both the guys go down on the things they flamed Clinton for
SM: Bill Clinton perjured himself under oath in a prosecution … please stop the CNN sound bite that it was about sex.
That would be like Barry Bonds saying, its just about performance enhancing drugs.
Lesson … do not lie to federal prosecutors.
BTW, no matter who something like this happens to … it is hardly funny as there are always innocent family members that have to pick up the pieces.
[...] course the fact that Mark Sanford wound up not being missing after all, but instead having an affair in Argentina is irrelevant. So when some one goes missing … Kerry finds that to be amusing. It is safe to [...]
they flamed him in public in the media before, during and after the trail.
But I agree, Clinton should not have lied, he should have admitted that the girl did “inhale”
obama better watch out for slick willie. he may have michelle on her knees.
So long…been o.k. to know you, Mark; hope you find another job; you’re finished!! That’s
just the way it is now.
17:you’ll be saying that about your president before 2012.
#18 Super Dave….did you say MY president????I think not.
# 19 – Bun
If you are a citizen of the United States of America, President Barack Obama IS your president. If you are a foreigner, then no.
You may not have voted nor even like the person, but in the real world he is the Commander-in-Chief of our country. Vote him out but you dream when you say the he isn’t your president. He, as a matter of historical fact, is. That is, unless you live in another dimension.
That does apply to all United States citizens.
St Stephen….thanks for your lecture; I hope you are getting paid to inform ignorant,less well read folks,all of the necessary things to make life complete. And are you a “Saint” as well? I am impressed totally..”may your cup run over”.
[...] the media fixates in on Governor Sanford’s extramarital affair with his Argentinian mistress, it would appear that former Democratic VP candidate and North [...]
Every time I see your face, I wamt to puke. I can only imagine what your wife feels.
Have you no shame? At lomg last, sir. Have you no shame?
Good for the taxpayers of this state? What a joke!
JUST GET OUT OF OUR FACE!
[...] How absolutely foolish and wreck-less could a politician be? How could Chris Lee not have thought that in the age of on-line social media that some one would not have recognized who he was?Com’on Man! Did we say he was a Congressman? Correct, Congressman no longer … he is now a former Congressman in what might be one of the fastest political scandals ever as Lee has now promptly resigned in disgrace, having apologized to his family and staff for “profound mistakes” and promised “to work as hard as I can to seek their forgiveness.” How could he be so pathetic as to cruise Craig’sList for chicks and not think that he would be outed? At least he did not use the excuse that he was hiking the Appalachian trail. [...]
