Carolina special election

Washington Post, by Rachel Weiner

Original Article

Posted By:supersid, 5/7/2013 8:55:20 PM

Mark Sanford has won the South Carolina special election in a competitive race for what in normal circumstances is a safe Republican seat. The former governor beat Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of comedian Stephen Colbert Busch, for the state’s 1st congressional district. The AP called the race for Sanford early in the evening, with the Republican leading Colbert Busch 54 percent 46 percent.

Comments:
He is a good guy. I am happy for him.

He´s a jerk, but she didn´t disclose her criminal record to the voters. And her brother is Stephen Colbert. (According to Mark Levin)

OP I´ll take your word he´s a good guy. I hope he´s learned his lesson. I know I´ve done some stupid things because of a woman. Before marriage.

The important thing is not only holding on to the seat but doing so convincingly when Dems poured all they had it into it. This will discourage fundraising in other close races. I can´t wait for the spin from luminaries such as DWS.

Way to notch a win, GOP. About time. The purists who will scream the loudest about his character flaws probably have an army of skeletons in their closet.

I lived in CHarleston 1993-2002. What impressed me about Sanford then was that when he was elected to house in 1994, he slept in his office to save taxpayer money. He pledged along with many others to serve 3 terms and retire, and he did (along with Lindsey Graham). So he is principled in that respect. I am not sure what happened more recently - especially spending state money to fly to South America - that seemed unlike what I remember from reading Post sand Courier all those years. His affair did not seem similar to Clinton, Spitzer etc - he talked about ´soulmate´ not boinking a young woman. So lets see how he uses his chance at redemption.

Whatever glitch in the system that allowed her name to be entered twice on the ballot needs to be corrected asap. She was nominated by two different parties (Dems and some other little known) and she could have garnered enough total votes that way to have won. Seems to me like she would have had to have a majority in one catagory, not the combined two, but then Dems prolly make the rules. But now that this little trick is out of the bag - you can bet Dems will be exploiting it any which way they can.

Democrats are upset that the party of family values would vote for him, but look at the other choice. What he did was disgusting but his opponent is pro abortion. This was clearly a case of lesser of two evils. His personal life was a mess, but on the issues he is right.

#9. Like you, I noticed her double entry on the ballot under Democrat and Working Families parties. I suspect a number of Low Info Voters voted for her twice, thus invalidating their ballot.

Sanford is a great conservative. I voted for him because I like his policies. The media did not tell the full stories. Those so called trips he took were business trips and he paid back the money for the personal part. He watched the Super Bowl with his son and could not get a hold of Jenny to ask if it was okay. That is a long way from being sneaky. He will do a great job. I love the fact those dems spent all that money for nothing. Wasn´t even close. We don´t pay much attention to outsiders anyway and we don´t take kindly to outsiders telling us what to do. For crying out loud he beat out 16 other candidates.

Not only didn´t she own her own dirt up front, when her arrest finally came out she tried to play the victim card. Yes she violated the judge´s rulings but that was only because the marriage had been abusive and she just had to protect the children.

So much for the "it´s dead-even" polls.

Announcing , on election eve yet, that the DOJ would be watching may have been counterproductive. I thought it might help Busch. But maybe it just boosted GOP turnout.

It is a good sign for 2014 that we did not cut off our nose to spite our face. In retrospect he seems more foolish than evil. It would appear that he truly fell in love...and answered the call.

Having said that, he ha proven himself as a true fiscal conservative and that is most important.

While admitting that I had some major misgivings about Sanford, I´m glad to read what my doctor friend at #7 wrote. That sets my mind somewhat at ease. The district was a red one, and it would have been a shame to forfeit the seat to a lefty. Electorally speaking, he´s made the most of his second chance. Onward.

The ap says Sanford won 54-46. Translation, as Rush says, the race was outside the margin of fraud. The criminal holder sent in observers, obnoxious, abusive punks no doubt, just in case the contest was close enough for democrats to steal. This is an important race that the GOP needed badly. Zippy´s plan to destroy America cannot be fulfilled unless democrats take control of the House. If they do, all bets are off.

I believe this makes the point others had hammered at us, they can only cheat when it is close.
Concerning his recent past. I dislike how politics has become a beauty pageant. No better than high school president elections.
I am not pretty, but I am smart. I made my employer a lot of money over the years and the company paid me well. Never once did my choice of car, home, or hobbies mean a thing...just my performance.
Why can´t we move back in that direction?

"HIS unwavering conservative record in office"

Seriously?? He abandons his post, jets off to Argentina, no one know where he´s at, shacks up with his squeeze, violates his marriage and you talk about conservative principles? So....conservative principles include dereliction of duty, lying to your staff and cheating on your wife?

Funny how "conservatives" are suddenly all forgiving when "their conservative" gets caught with his pants down. What Im reading is that so long as the "conservative" votes their way, its all good.

And this attitude differs from the democrats in what way?

And for the record, unlike the "conservatives" who couldn´t vote for a RINO and cosigned the country further down the socialist path, I would have held my nose and voted of Sanford. I view Sanford as the lesser of two evils.

#32, there were two choices, and I´m glad the Republican won.

I don´t care how immoral his actions were, he will vote against abortion and sodomite special rights. And hopefully he will get lots of ways to vote to dismantle Øvomitcare one little piece at a time (if that is what it takes).

He did something stupid. He paid for it. Now it´s time to move forward. I still don´t think there is much chance of saving this republic from the disaster of 8 years of Øvomit, but we have to grasp everything that we can -- no matter how flawed -- to make that happen. And if he is a start to that, yes, I will forgive him!!! I´m not looking for saints at this point, I´m looking for soldiers!!!

There is a big difference. I voted for Mitt Romney despite my misgivings about his political principles because he was indisputably more conservative than the alternative. At no time did I worry about Romney´s personal probity. Mitt Romney was, and is, a good man. Sanford is the reverse: I have no doubt that he has a wonderful conservative resume, and I have nothing but doubts about his personal conduct and moral judgement. Mark Sanford is a creep. We will find out just how big a creep in due course.

Excuse second post but #32, nobody in the conservative camp appreciated Sanford´s immature and embarrassing midlife crisis (or whatever it was) but this is an important seat. He IS a reliable conservative vote. He has a record. It´s just apples and oranges equating this race with Romney´s loss.

WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic and Republican leaders reached final agreement on a deal to reopen the government and extend its borrowing authority into February, with votes in the House and Senate possibly to begin this afternoon, according to aides familiar with the negotiations. Senate Republicans have gathered for a final review, but lawmakers have given no indication they will block it. A government shutdown into its third week yielded virtually no concessions to the Republicans other than some minor tightening of income verifications for people obtaining subsidized insurance premiums under the new health care law.

Sanford, Fla. - George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager, igniting a national debate on racial profiling and civil rights, was found not guilty on Saturday of the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin. He also was acquitted of manslaughter, a lesser charge. After three weeks of testimony, the six-woman jury rejected the prosecution’s contention that Mr. Zimmerman had deliberately pursued Mr. Martin because he viewed the hoodie-clad teenager as a criminal and instigated the fight that led to his death.

Just when I thought the George Zimmerman "trial" couldn´t sink any lower, the prosecutorial limbo dancers of the State of Florida magnificently lowered their own bar in the final moments of their cable-news celebrity. In real justice systems, the state decides what crime has been committed and charges somebody with it. In the Zimmerman trial, the state´s "theory of the case" is that it has no theory of the case: might be murder, might be manslaughter, might be aggravated assault, might be a zillion other things, but it´s something.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight
