Sanford’s fatal sin: Crossing Donald Trump
Politico, by Alex Isenstadt

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 6/13/2018 4:39:36 AM

In the end, it wasn’t the Appalachian Trail that brought down Mark Sanford. It was President Donald Trump. The South Carolina congressman’s stunning defeat in Tuesday’s Republican primary effectively ended the turbulent two-decade career of a political icon who once harbored presidential aspirations. From his time as a congressman in the 1990s, to his eight-year governorship, to his unexpected House comeback that followed, Sanford had long established himself as a figure who cut against the grain — the rare politician who loved to break with his own party. Yet in taking on Trump, his friends and political allies say, he took it

FTA: “Sanford himself had expressed concern that a loss in the primary would discourage what dwindling GOP dissent among against the White House remains.”

Why does the Republican Party feel the need to have outspoken dissenters in its ranks? Do they not understand that we need unity to achieve the agenda that the American people voted for? It seems they just can’t help themselves. It really is disturbing that they cannot understand the concept of backing a winner. The democrats on the other hand stick together regardless. Buy a clue all you maverick minded Republicans! Do the WILL of the people, support this President. Good riddens, Sanford. We’re much better off without you and your sanctimony.

To praphrase this entire article in 2 sentences: Sanford never understood his voters. The tweet from POTUS may have been the final nail.

“He made a calculation in the post-Trump election that he was going to stand on principle."

WHAT principle? To be a jerk and work against the wishes of the People because you personally don´t like Trump? Because, like a whiny liberal, you are annoyed Trump won?

After Trump´s post election meeting with Congress, Sanford found it "necessary" to comment "I wasn´t particularly impressed". What snark. Arrogance, obnoxiousness, and obstructionism is NOT a principle.

Sanford richly deserves this loss. I hope it stings for a long time.

Sanford was a dyed in the wool McCain-ite. He loved thinking he was the only brain in the room and had all the answers. Hubris was his middle name. But, he failed to understand that old formulas does not work anymore. Trump changed everything- not only for Democrats and leftists- but also for these "Republican-Lite" pols who love to think their key to the power box lies with GD Democrats. The people are- for now at least - waking up to those kinds of filthy political charlatans.

If McConnell and Ryan were capable of providing some savvy leadership we would not have all of this independent action by whiners, never-Trumpers and peacocks. Hopefully the next election will fix that too. These people forget that what they want does not matter, it´s what the people who elected them want.

Isn´t Sanford the guy that left his family, and abandoned his job of governor to go chasing after some Brazilian journalist like an infatuated high schooler? How can he criticize anyone without coming across like a total complete hypocrite? Considering the election results, it is safe to say he wasn´t successful.

Seriously, all too often, watching a critic is the equivalent of watching a dog that suddenly stops and relieves itself. Not pretty, and something you wish you hadn´t seen. More and more, that is what Trump critics are devolving into. Wish they would just stop.

Sanford was a man who had it all. He was frequently named as a Republican candidate for President. And then he threw it all away for a sleazy affair. He got a temporary reprieve when he was elected to Congress and then, decided to take on Trump! Now he has lost the governorship, his wife, his girlfriend and his Congressional seat. I think God is trying to tell him something.

Let Sanford be a lesson to all Republicans. We demand the MAGA program be implemented. I was glad to see so many retirements, starting with Ryan, Gowdy, Sasse and Corker. A surprise is that the Against Trump National Review is still published.

Now we turn to carpetbagger Mitt Romney. Please Utah, vote for Dr. Mike Kennedy who is also a Mormon and supports President Donald Trump the Great. I donated to his campaign.

To go against your party because they are making a mistake or doing something evil is honorable. Look at Joe Lieberman. He was the perfect example of that.

But Sanford, McPain, Flake, and several others just go against their party so that they can be branded as "rebels". They go against the president and the Republican Party even when they are doing good things (like trying to do away with the huge evil mistake of Ovomitcare).

Thank God most of them will be gone shortly. Stanford got defeated. Flake knew he would be defeated and just "retired". McPain is on death´s doorstep due to his cancer. We can only pray that good, conservative Republicans will take their places and President Trump can continue his agenda to Make America Great Again!!!!!!!

There´s a road down here in SC that leads to some property Sanford owns. It was a long, narrow dirt road, Hardly anyone lived on it, but it ended up at one of Sanfords´ properties on the waterfront. Then one day I´m driving by and .. VIOLA! ... the county had paved the road beginning to end. Needless to say, anybody down here can name 10 dozen well traveled roads that should´ve been paved before THAT one. He lost me right then and there.

Just over a year ago, White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney was being raked over the coals for his budget blueprint. In addition to supposed cuts to the Meals on Wheels program (which weren’t really cuts), the document projected savings of $72.5 billion within Social Security’s two main programs for the disabled. Liberal journalists injected outrage into their reports and columns. Some denounced this modest frugality as President Trump’s “deceitful attack on the disabled” and called the justifications for the reforms "false claims." Others snarkily but accurately noted that the cuts “will hurt Trump counties,” which perhaps should have signaled that

If you’ve eaten today, you should thank a farmer.

Across our country, more than 3 million producers operate farms that generate food for families around the world. As members of the House Agriculture Committee, we represent areas from California to New York, each of which rely heavily on our local farms that promote jobs and support countless workers and their families.

WASHINGTON — The Obama White House’s chief cyber official testified Wednesday that proposals he was developing to counter Russia’s attack on the U.S. presidential election were put on a “back burner” after he was ordered to “stand down” his efforts in the summer of 2016. The comments by Michael Daniel, who served as White House “cyber security coordinator” between 2012 and January of last year, provided his first public confirmation of a much-discussed passage in the book, “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” co-written by this reporter and David Corn,

For the last few months, James Brien Comey, the FBI director fired by Donald Trump in the midst of the Russia investigation, has presented himself as the Last Honest Man as he toured the country selling books and taking potshots at the president. How self-righteous is Comey?

The anarchy and disorder dominating progressive cities across the West Coast recently hit a new low in Seattle. King County officials are looking to roll out a “safe injection van,” a legal venue at which addicts could shoot up illegal drugs unhindered and “safely.” The first of its kind in the United States, the van would manage to undermine further the rule of law while also doing little to help addicts.

It all really began with Sam Donaldson. Back in the days of Ronald Reagan, the brash and cantankerous reporter with the worst toupee in television history made his name by yelling at the president. He’d yell at him at White House events, on the South Lawn (where Reagan would pretend he couldn’t hear Donaldson over the chopper blades of Marine One), even in the Rose Garden. His aggressiveness (read: bad behavior) made Donaldson one of the first “star” reporters at the White House.

The other night MSNBC ran a fawning documentary about James Comey.

If you sought to preserve the violent, reactionary and undemocratic regimes of countries like El Salvador and Honduras -- and, to a great extent, Mexico -- into perpetuity, how would you do it? One way would be by providing a permanent U.S. safety valve for all their poor and downtrodden, the victims. Just as with Europe and the Middle East, open borders can salve the soul and make us all feel good about ourselves, but they come with a price. And that price is not just for the richer host countries in supplying costly services. It is even greater for the countries

Today, the Trump administration pulled the U.S. out of the cesspool known as the United Nations Human Rights Council. It did so in protest of the presence of notorious human rights abusers on the commission, as well as the commission’s blatant bias against Israel.

It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v.
