A day that changed the 1st
Congressional District race
for Mark Sanford

Post & Courier [Charleston, SC], by Robert Behre, Schuyler Kropf

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 4/18/2013 7:52:43 AM

If Mark Sanford’s quest for redemption falls short in the 1st Congressional District race, he may well point to a stunning 24 hours as the turning point. Sanford’s promising chance at beating Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch in the Republican-leaning district began to fray at the edges Tuesday night when fresh details about his messy family life leaked out. More unflattering information about his personal life emerged Wednesday, followed by a decision by the National Republican Congressional Committee to back away from the former two-term governor and ex-congressman.

I´ll say it again. There´s more to this than meets the eye. See reader comments.

Backing away from Mark Sanford will give the Dems an automatic win.

Is any more proof required that the National Republican Congressional Committee is completely brain dead?

Maybe not, #1. According to some quoted in this piece, Sanford could win anyway. But, the NRCC is under no obligation to finance him further.

This is a perfect example why the Democrats are beating the Republicans. Once the Democrats have their candidate, they never ever back away from that person. No matter how sleazy, crooked, immoral, you name it, the Democrats support the Democrat candidate.

The Republicans, on the other hand, leave some candidates flapping in the wind. Then they wonder why they lost the election.

One poster wondered why the dems usually support their candidates no matter how immoral they might be.It is because most dems have no morals as opposed to most conservatives who do.

Yes, #2, he is in a strong Republican district and ´possibly´ true, the NRCC is under no obligation to fund him further. By the same token, as a card carrying Republican, I have no further obligation to send the RNCC any money.

this Sanford For Congress story dripped ´´weird´´ from the inception. We learned that Jenny was considering a run but that she backed down when advised that she could be running against her X in the primary. Then, we saw the boys at the primary victory party. You have to admit, they looked kinda surly. That could have been a normal adolescent ´´face´´ - except that those kids were relatively acclimated to having a father in politics. THEN the odd story about being in Jenny´s home without her present - watching a football game. I´m not Jenny Sanford but that would have gotten my back up also.

From what we know about Mark Sanford, he´s not very good at mapping out consequences to his actions. He either doesn´t listen to his advisers or he doesn´t much care about fallout. But I guess you might say that about many politicians.

You might even call it hubris...

Mark Sanford has made a number of serious mistakes in the handling of his personal and professional life, but I find it hard to condemn him for wanting to spend time with his son. Too many fathers abandon their families entirely, but not Mark. I hate to see the GOP abandon him. His political views are right on, imho.

The fact that he won the primary is surprising. Surely they had better people to run for the position. But he won the primary and it is a gut-check for Republicans who know the only hope we have of surviving Obama is a Republican House. It must be a real problem for Republicans voting in that district. As Republicans we don´t like having to vote for a guy who behaves the way this man does.

Yesterday LDotters were beating up on Jenny Sanford for being "vindictive" and not considering her kids.

FTA:

There also was a report in The Washington Post that two of his sons were upset by his former mistress and current fiancee Maria Belen Chapur’s appearance at a runoff victory celebration on April 2.

Many of us saw the pain in his younger son´s face in the photo of Sanford giving his paramour a victory smooch.

Sanford is a loser. The Republicans voted for him. They may lose.

As for the publication of these stories about him, one would think that naive Republicans had never heard of "opposition research". Colbert Busch´s camp has undoubtedly been turning every stone, and with Sanford that is not really hard work.

I was so disgusted when Sanford took the nomination. It´s not about his 2-timing his wife, it´s about his disappearance from his home and office and neither his staff nor his family knew where he was.

He should have come home to changed locks on the statehouse.

Seriously, this guy is the worst of the worst. I completely believe that the Democrats put him in as the nominee. Even if he wins, they have someone with so much baggage and hubris they can easily blackmail him.

If Sanford loses, it´s Sanford´s fault and his alone. People were ready to forgive him and then this. He is a fool. People hoped he had realized and regretted his foolishness in declaring his love for his "soulmate," but apparently not. The RNC is to blame only in that they failed to field a candidate who could beat Sanford in primary. Let the Democrats have this seat and find a Republican who can win in 2014.

This is why we need another strong party that will provide alternative candidates when a Republican is not acceptable, and will endorse a Republican that is.

The timeline the article gives confirms my suspicions earlier this week. The incident happens Feb 3. The ex files a complaint Mar 23. Mark Sanford wins the open primary April 2. The story doesn´t break until April 15, two weeks before the special election.

This was planned. Dems voted for Sanford knowing they had this in their pocket. They simply waited for the optimum time to drop the bomb. It helps to have a compliant press and a GOP that folds its tent whenever woman voters might get irritated.

A huge forest fire raging in a Chilean city has claimed eleven lives and destroyed 1,000 buildings. Eleven deaths have already been confirmed as the catastrophic fire continues to engulf the port city of Valparaiso. The armed forces have been called in to maintain law and order in the city while thousands of people were evacuated amid warnings that the death toll will rise further. Huge numbers of homes - many in the steep hills around the city itself--as well as a women´s prison were emptied of their residents in a bid to save them from the destruction.

The Ukrainian president declared ´war´ between his country and Russia today after gunfire between pro-Moscow troops and Ukrainian special forces ended in the first fatalities of the conflict. The country´s interior minister Arsen Avakov said in a Facebook post a security service officer was killed near Slovyansk, east Ukraine.

Ed Miliband says he wants to be Britain’s “first Jewish PM”. He apparently has no ambitions to be its most historically informed. As any fule kno, Benjamin Disrael--one of the greatest PMs there ever was--was Jewish. Yes, he converted to Christianity. But Ed Miliband doesn’t even believe in God and describes himself as a “Jewish atheist”--so we’re talking about ethnic identity here, not religion. And Disraeli was keenly aware of his ethnicity, calling himself "the blank page between the Old Testament and the New".

The percentage of family doctors supporting the UK Independence Party has surged from 0.3 percent at the last general election to a new high of 7.3 percent, almost double the amount planning to vote Liberal Democrat. The figures, compiled by GP magazine, also show a sharp decline in Conservative support.

The UK Independence Party (UKIP) has hit a record high ComRes poll rating, as the Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties both drop points. UKIP is now polling at 20 percent, while Britain´s traditional third party, the Liberal Democrats, have sunk to just 7.

Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated.
