I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
He's not my governor, so it's not my call, to me that is for South Carolinians to decide.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
Someone today pointed out to me that, while it may be forgivable from the perspective of the state for him to have had an affair, what isn't forgivable is the irresponsibility with which he carried out the recreation. They were speaking of the fact that no one knew where he was. Since the job of governor is 24/7/365, his lying about his whereabouts is unacceptable.
Not sure if I agree with this, but thought I'd add it in here.
The problem is there are two things you could take from this scandal (or any similar scandal).
The first is that "family values" is the campaign cry of a charlatan and the other is that Sanford is a bad man and should resign.
I'm pretty sure I know which one the voters of South Carolina are going to take.
Strom Thurmond had a black child while championing segregation, Newt Gingrich had an affair while publicly criticizing Clinton for the same thing and Larry Craig had anonymous gas sex in airport bathrooms while using gays as a whipping post to garner votes.
If you claim to have "family values" you inevitably are morally bankrupt. And more importantly, you're intellectually bankrupt. People who run on "values" have no "ideas". If you have ideas your values are shown through your ideas. "Values" are empty and meaningless, so they attract empty and (black maid-****ing, wife-cheating-while-finger-pointing and bathroom cock sucking) meaningless people.
I always dismiss any candidate that runs on "values" as a probable cross dressing party hack with nothing of substance.
And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
His career is over so he may as well just step down

Well, Mark Sanford called for Clinton to resign after the scandal with Monica Lewinsky. So why is he not stepping down after his scandal with this unknown women from Argentina?
I don't know, that sounds a little bit hypocritical to me.
