    Oh yeah, I think that if he decided to make a decision like this, then he definetley can't run America.

    Re: Should Sanford resign?

    Why, because of what he did or because we know about it?

    If he's out of the running, then we aught to be throwing all our politicans out the door. Jus tsaying.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Until someone can convincingly argue that he broke the law, there is no reason for him to resign.

    Flying off to Argentina to wet your willie is not smart, and for a politician is exceptionally stupid, but of itself it is neither a criminal nor an impeachable offense.

    Re: Should Sanford resign?

    I am a South Carolinian. From what I'm hearing, about half in SC think he probably should resign...our only reservation is that would make Andre Bauer governor, an appalling notion.

    Many of us are very traditional and conservative about such things as breaking marriage vows, and because Sanford presented himself as a leader in conservative family values, this failing is that much more significant. He let down his family, and he let down many of us who believed he was a square-dealing straight-shooter who lived by what he professed.

    He might be careful about wanting to be like King David. God told David that his soul would be spared, but that the temporal consequences of his actions would be heart-breakingly severe.

    I am chiefly sorry for his wife and kids. I thought better of the man. His best course of action would be to resign and devote his time to reconciling with his family and making up for his error in judgement.

    Because he did it and we know about it. When Clinton did it, he was in major trouble right? Nearly got impeached. The fact that Sanford did it and was caught would, in the eyes of most Americans, feel he isn't trustworthy enough to be Pres.

    Wait, so, if we didn't know about it, he'd be good for President?

    No. If we didn't know about it, we wouldn't realize he wasn't trustworthy until he (hypothetically) became president, when it would be a lot harder to conceal the fact. Then he would be impeached. We know about it now, so we don't want him to run for president.

    If he somehow broke the law then yes, if he didn't then he shouldn't. Though the one thing he should do is to ask his wife for forgivness for what he did. Then again that girl was hot so i really wouldn't be suprised that someone would cheat on their wife with her. This is a private matter and unless this effects his governing skills then it should be treated as such.

    I think this does effect his governing skills because it showed a lack of decision making skills, and reasoning skills.

    No, he technically didn't break the law, but do you want someone who flies off to Argentina for five days without running the state to do that while not running the country?



    This man should be careful how he handles this situation, and even if he didn't break the law he sure did go against the average Americans morals.

    And Bill Clinton didn't get impeached for marital unfaithfulness. He got impeached for lieing to a grand jury.

    That is grounds for not electing or re-electing. That is not grounds for removal from office or resignation.
