Amen. I’m tired of non Carolinians telling us how to vote as though they don’t have their own mess and most of them worse than us! Sanford will vote conservative.

SC yet again shows their own voting ways and their own views, good for them.

A win against socialists, communists and Obama which he is one is a win for us, thank you SC

The best we can hope for is that this irresponsible "conservative" piece of garbage helps to derail the Obama agenda.

Hopefully he won't disappear from his office to attend to his personal inter continental romantic issues when important votes come up..

What do you base that charge on? Sanford is a conservative, you have no basis to post that garbage. Do you know his record as our governor? I gave you more credit than that.

you know I never get many of your posts , but do you prefer the socialists to have won this seat instead?

It was Sanford or a socialist and Obama and you are coming across to me as you would rather see us lose.
now I am probably wrong in what I;ve said but it does comes across as you don’t seem happy they lost

A good question. But then, look at so many of our “supposed” conservative stalwarts... Rubio pushing amnesty, Paul Ryan embracing homo adoption, Toomey join with the Dems for gun registration. And these were supposed to be good, solid conservatives! The ones we could count on, when the chips are down. Well, now this embarrassing flake Sanford is added up there into the Washington mix.

I don’t recognize anything anymore. America. The GOP. The culture. Probably just time to retrench, and say to hell with it all. I have an idea my voting days are all but over. Just no point in it.

I was prepared to give him my vote in 2008 for president-until he turned out to be a head case. Oh well, hope still springs eternal. This is one Californian who still wishes a bright future for Senator Sanford.

Until his weird meltdown,...

Have you noticed that all of the conspiring journalists' stories, without letup, even today and tonight, always recount the official narrative of what happened to Sanford and what he did during that time? Have you noticed the constancy of buzzwords related to Sanford in the news? Like Argentine mistress, Appalachian Trail, and other such references kept alive by other posters on this thread.

Not many posters here tonight seem to doubt the yarn told by the SCGOPe, the Dems, and the willing pretenders holding jobs in journalism. Odd that some FReepers have swallowed this bait and have been so easily hooked. Now, what if it turns out one day that the story was not told straight? What then? Well, no worries; not many on this FR thread seem to give much support Mark Sanford the conservative politician anyway.

But, in spite of incidents that sometimes call it into question, I still believe that FR remains a website for conservatives.

Good job SC. Not the perfect candidate, but I'll take a win over a loss anytime. We need those votes. Let's just take this win quietly to the bank, and get on with the business of b-slapping Obangi.

Another RINO scumbag. Now Primary his ass.
*************************************************
RINO? RINO? You do know that saying it's so doesn't make it so, don't you? And you'll only convince a microscopically small minority of the FReeper community by claiming he's a RINO—most FReepers aren't among the low-information voter crowd. Sanford will be among the most conservative members of the Congress and a welcome reinforcement to the Tea Party caucus.

yet again the elitist establishment refused to help him and just sat there not bothered seeing a socialist win the seat.

I think, had I lived there, I would have very reluctantly voted for Sanford.

However, I'm not going to criticize those who decided to sit it out. There's an added benefit that he basically won on a shoestring budget, while the Dems and their auxiliaries (Unions, other activist groups) poured an ENORMOUS amount of $$$ into trying - unsuccessfully - to defeat him.

Even if Colbert-Busch won, the costs involved wouldn't have been worth the return on investment (one House seat that would likely go back to the Republicans in 2014). However in losing (and by close to 10 points) all they really did was flush their money down the drain.

His wife isn’t telling him how to vote now. The media is telling him how to vote. Can you name a single political figure, who didn’t move to the left when they came back from a scandal like this. 100% of the time. Give me one example.

>>Wonder how much money the DNCC, George Soros and other groups dumped into the race? I heard Sanford was outspent 4 or 5 to 1.

Actually, Sanford was outspent 45 to 1 since the GOPe refused to fund him.

Be happy it helps to stop Obama and their agenda and it stops them saying how they won in a conservative state or do you not seem happy over that

And like this tonight:

“By Carrie Dann, NBC News

Once the disgraced and tearful figure at the epicenter of an embarrassing scandal, former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford will return to public life as a U.S. congressman.”

Was Pravda ever really more propagandizing than our current press mess?

damn right, the south spoke , SC spoke and why some are not happy begs me to question why .

Would they rather have seen an Obama voter and fan to win and see us lose more traction and would they rather see the left harping on how they won this state and a conservative state.

Well done SC from a conservative here in north east FL

Amen. I’m tired of non Carolinians telling us how to vote as though they don’t have their own mess and most of them worse than us! Sanford will vote conservative.

In many ways, I understand accept your point. However, those conservatives still in blue states (like me in CA) are indeed actually conservative, and not squishy one bit. We're just swamped by the enemy, despite our best efforts to organize and educate.

In my defense, remember that embarrassing acts like Sanford's mistakes, or that dingbat Akin, impact the races in "purple" states. And when we don't win purple states, we lose even more ground in the blue states.

Of course I welcome any and all conservative votes. But I also recognize that Sanford's many episodes of flakiness - especially is in a professional capacity (dereliction of duty, lying to the citizens, allegations of not obeying court orders) - makes him a risk. He's a risk worth taking today to keep the communists out, but we - meaning all conservatives - can do better.

One last point: polls are showing that Americans don't like Democrat's ideology, but also reject Republican competency. Conservatives can help ourselves NATIONWIDE by presenting incredibly competent candidates.

If Sanford drifts left, he will be primaried and lose his seat. Bob Inglas comes to mind in SC-4.

Sanford will vote very conservative and focus on his district.

agreed again, I’m starting to think some either ant the perfect candidate of which there are not many or they actually want oabma to gain another vote.

Bottom line, it was either a vote for oabma or not and yet some , just a couple mind seem to be pissed off that we have a vote against Obama which in turn I think where do they really stand

Hey asshat, your Dem fave lost. Too bad for you.

You can throw the crap you find at the bottom of your cage against the wall all you want, but Mark Sanford has never been a RINO in office and he has no reason to start now.

He showed rotten judgment and screwed up big time, but he didn’t waver on his politics at all during that debacle, nor did he give in to the chorus of Dems and Reps saying he should ‘step down’. He’s a flawed guy, but as a representative of conservatism in office, he’s been one of the best you can find.

So stuff it, you whiny little POS. Your Dem lost. Go whine about it on DU.

And BTW, I live here in SC. Where the hell do you live, since you’re so ‘concerned’ with all this?

He couldn't even be primaried out this time, he's got it for life. Or at least until he pulls a Mark Foley/Larry Craig.

Can you explain to me why you like this guy so much you will sacrifice your principles/everything you believe in? Anybody who has an ego that big and IQ that low means real trouble.
