Sanford Won’t Be ‘Hangin’ Up the Spurs’ Before His Term Ends

Posted on Aug 26, 2009

The pressure on South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford to resign hasn’t let up since his revelation earlier this summer of his extramarital escapades in Argentina, but for his part, Sanford says he’s staying put for the remainder of his term, thank y’all very much. —KA

Typical of a politician not to care what his voters think!  America must wake up and vote out all the incumbants.  Where does it say that we should only vote for Republicans or Democrats.  They are all for filling their pockets.
Sanford is an arrogant a-hole who really thinks he is above it all.  I say impeach him for leaving his State and Country without telling anybody where he was.

Sanford will not resign because he believes absolutely that his God has selected him to rule. When his governorship ends Stanford must obey his God and search for another venue to rule. I am not kidding. He is one of the C-street freaks who believe this crap.

Rotting meat swinging in the breeze.  A malodorous

Yes, Sanford is horrible. Democrats never cheat on their wives while they are in office. Also funny how if they do it is with some knock out woman or man.

It amazes me how shallow liberal elitist really are.

Tell us again who’s dime paid for the planes to take this sorry-looking excuse for a man to another country to bof his mistress? But after seeing a picture of this “other woman” with the man’s eyebrows, they didn’t ruin two couples.

Why is it Republican men are so repulsive looking?

A south-american affair—how dare he! and I bet he learned how do the mambo in the process; what a thrill-seeking pig !

S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford, another Republican hypocrite who vows to stay in office and stink up the place.
