Yeah, he only lost in his quest for morality and marriage.

Lol, when I first replied to you I didn’t realize the connection between Elizabeth Colbert Busch and Stephen Colbert! Guess he’ll have a hard time cracking jokes about the election, huh?

He cheated on his wife. He lacks principles. He's a scumbag. A guy like that will be bending over for the next queer that has dirt on him.

Conservatives have principles, ergo Sanford is no conservative.

Someone posted this week on FR that you can begin to knowing which FReeper is a true conservative by finding out what they think of a President Sarah Palin.

This evening, I can add another qualifier: Do you think Mark Sanford was a conservative Representative and S.C. Governor?

damn right, well done SC, love your state and for a couple moaning we won and the left lost then it seems they must have other motives on here because .

A vote for Colbert would have meant a vote for oabma

2. Sanford wins then it’s a vote against Obama

seems a couple are really pissed off that a vote against oabma won , mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

The winners are: (1) Sanford, for using the Bill Clinton playbook to wage a return to politics, (2) Governor Haley for filling the DeMint Senate seat, opening a House seat, and keeping the House seat in her party, (3) Lindsey Graham, for showing that name ID is the key to winning a Republican nomination in SC and many other states too.

The losers are (1) E. Busch, for having a last name that may have reminded liberals of GWB but most likely for taking her election for granted, (2) Obama; SC could have followed the FL and VA example and tried to cozy up to Obama but did not, (3) The Republican runoff candidate who lost to Sanford; he could have been a 65 percent winner tonight and started a real career if he had had the vital name ID.

Yes, from everything that I see, Sanford is conservative in his policies. It's good that he won today. However, when his erratic behavior impacts his professional execution of office, it is a legitimate cause for concern.

BTW, I stand fully behind Sarah Palin.

Notice how leftists are only about Redemption when its one of their own who needs redeeming. Sanford cheated on his wife, was that a horrible thing, yes, but not the end of the world..meanwhile Teddy Kennedy let a woman drown in his car not a peep from the press, they consider him a hero..Bill Clinton cheated on his wife repeatedly and raped women, he is a hero to the left..but Sanford is considered the bad guy

Memo to Sanford: be thankful the voters of your district were forgiving enough to give you another chance. Now go to work and do your job. And stay the hell out of Argentina.

Now this is excellent advice.

Nope! Tonight, with the Sanford/conservative victory, there truly is no joy among the mainstream media types, the GOPe types (including the NRCC and the NRC —NEVER, EVER contribute money to these corrupt organizations —contribute directly to conservative candidates instead), the Progressives and the useful idiots of this joyless crowd.

Cheating on his wife indicates he has no principles and is also a scum bag.

I don't get people who vigorously defend politicians. There are only two types of politicians, those that are new and those that have failed to be principled. Sanford ain't new.

It's plain that you've got some Southern somewhere in your genes. If you move down here, we have really bad traffic occasionally in the Upstate of S.C., between G'ville and S'burg, so that you wouldn't be too homesick for home. Your line of thinking will fit right in with us.

Well, you're not the first FReeper poster to pick up a rock to bash Mark Sanford for his sins. So, fire away, if you feel you meet all the qualifications. And keep on bouncing them off his head if it helps you feel superior. For now.

It’s not that. It’s probably that some people, like me, are perhaps viewing it through a more a multi-varied prism. On one hand it’s great that Sanford won. He’ll probably vote conservatively, and it’s a great relief that that horrid Busch and her vile Comedy Channel peanut brigade were deprived of their celebration.

Yet, on the other hand, Sanford revealed himself during his ‘scandal,’ to be a really grotesquely self-absorbed character, with his emotional ramblings. Really, really pathetic. Real men don’t behave or talk this way! He showed repeatedly that he was devoid of character. So even though it’s terrific to have a reliable vote against Obama, it still comes across as a rather un-celebratory situation, in how it reflects a degraded American culture. And it’s that degraded culture that keeps lowing its standards, opening the doors to such degeneracy like fag marriage.

Yes, it is a very good thing for you that you never had or ever will have a breakdown broadcast and written about throughout the Nation and a good part of the world. Yes, real men would have done as well as you, if some of YOUR sins were made evident for the whole country to pick apart.

speaking of conspiring journalists...

You are correct but then you live here and are aware of the complete story. The role Andre played in the scandal is why he’ll never be elected to office although I hear he might try to run for governor. I have always believed Jenny had a role in the fiasco as well. They knew where he was and the trap was set. That doesn’t excuse him but the media outside of SC never gave out all the hubbub around what else was going on behind the scene.

There is no such thing as a conservative with no principles. There are RINOs better than Obama. I just don't get excited anymore about any Republican, especially after my Tea Party Senator (Arlen Toomey) let me down on gun control. Toomey has no principles, he doesn't even understand the Constitution.

So I have to think that any man that sells out his wife is willing to sell out the Constitution.

Not really. Lost interest in trying to figure out the fellow about the time he crashed his airplane. Where was it? Blacksburg, Gaffney? Andre fell off my radar somewhere along the way.

It’s wasn’t just because of a breakdown. It was his stupid ramblings about ME...ME...ME. Total self-absorption. No care about his duties, obligations, responsibilities, honor. Just himself and his new “soul-mate.” He’s a repulsive creep. Devoid of character. Any adult male that behaves like he did gets absolutely no respect from me. Only revulsion.

Looking at the glass half-full, I’m glad he’ll be there in DC to counter Obama. But nothing more.

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Bill Clinton has a 71% popularity rating. He is still married.

I don't care about his personal mistakes any more than I care about David Vitter being with a prostitute. The GOP needs to stop throwing people under the bus for such issues. Let Sanford decide his own morality and what is best for him in terms of his marriage. Reagan got divorced. I could care less if he committed adultery.

I don’t have an example but you don’t know Sanford, that is obvious by your unsubstantiated rants against him. You are just repeating garbage you’ve read in the media. You are not from SC and yet you talk like you have some secret knowledge about our Governor. We know him best and we know more about what went on than you do. If you knew Jenny like we do you would be glad she is no longer his advisor. Mark Sanford is a conservative. Time will tell who was right, my guess is it will be me.
