    If the Governor isn't avaliable and cannot be reached, then whoever needs him should go to the LT Governor immediately, no big deal.

    Caine, to answer your question, I don't care. I didn't mean to state that what he did was AWOL; rather, what he did was similar to AWOL. Such behavior is incredibly irresponsible. For me, I don't want a governor who goes missing, particularly intentionally, for something as menial as an affair. But that's me.

    Thats fine, but you are a part of the problem why politics gets so nasty.

    People's expectations of their elected leaders lifestyles are much too high.

    Thats true for even non elected government employees too for that matter. Or should I say, people in positions of government authority.

    The problem is they didn't know where the governor was, what his situation was, and if he was going to be back anytime soon. Stop and think about it, if Obama went to.... Chile without telling anyone, and came back saying he was having an affair, what would you do? Start yelling about incompetence, him being a bad president, and start calling for impeachement. Then liberals and conservatives start asking for him to resign, as I'm sure you would ask Obama to. And then on here, you start saying, "he had vacation time." thats partisanship. As aps noted, you are not "like that for the most part." How do you know she isn't talking about something else?

    Ironic. You use her to defend you, and then attack her. Is that the future of the GOP? Maybe thats why there's no one leading it....

    People's expectations of their leaders are for their leaders to be better then them, hence the uselessness of the "elitist" remark about Obama. Do you honestly want some hill billy from god knows where to lead any group of people? NO, you want someone who is profesional, has higher standards, and is smarter then the average person. While Sanford may or may not be smarter then the average person, he was unprofessional in his conduct of leaving the whole state standing still, and had low standards for cheating on his wife.

    Can you show me where I stated that about Obama?

    Don't put words in my mouth in order to fit me into the partisan hack that you wished I was.

    If he didn't return after a while, then report him missing and promote the LT Governor to Governor, simple.

    Had Obama did the same thing, it would depend on if someone needed the President for a particular reason, if he had some President work to do.

    Since the President is usually much busier than a Governor (since the federal government decided to OWN states rights and all) this would most likely be the case that he would have something to do.

    1. It's common sense dude, get some.

    2. I didn't put them in your mouth, they are just in the back there.

    3. You know you would start saying Obama should resign/get impeached if he did what Sanford did.

    4. Sure.

    5. It is amazing how defensive you get. I musta hit the point head on.

    Where did I attack her. I informed her that her and people like her, who focus on what they might want to conjure up in their own minds of what could be possibly maybe happening in the governor's mind to effect political decisions for the state based upon decisions made in his personal life, and the expectation that our elected officials are supposed to act in this "holy" way is aside the point.

    If the individual involved is making solid choices for the governed area and improving the lives of his constituents, then I give a rats ass less how "professional" he is when it comes to his personal life, or if his/her "standards" are higher than mine when it comes to his/her personal life. I could also give a rats ass less about how "intelligent" he is on a rateable scale, as long as the decisions being made and the policy that he/she is enacting or helping to enact is improving the lives of his/her constituents.

    Its about what they do FOR us. Not what they do when they aren't working for us.

    Two things matter when looking at a candidate overall. That is,
    1. Are they going to make the decisions necessary to make our lives better while still being in line with the constitution
    2. Do they have a record of following laws. (If not, they don't need to be making new ones).

    Once I can get past those two aspects, the rest is policy preference, what *I* think would help us, and what *I* (as a voter) would like to see set in motion, or in some cases, NOT set in motion.

    This is why 16 year olds should stick to skateboarding and vandalism.

    You are too immature to be on this forum.

    And in the meantime, because the clocked ticked twelve, the executioner pushed the button and the convicts head came off.

    Swell!

    It was irresponsible for Sanford to make himself unavailable without informing the chain of command.
