Wow, talk about pride--Sanford 'apologized' to his cabinet and say he has no plans to resign and still had the balls to tell his people that work still has to get done regardless of anything he has done 'right or wrong'--SAY WHAT?? It sounded like he could of cared less about what he'd done and maybe he doesn't think he DID anything and that it was all about meeting some broad from Argentina...I can't explain it. Hey, this whole cocky thing might just work it worked for George W. Bush.

He cried and apologized on tv the other day. I guess he feels he does not need to do it anymore and go one with business. As someone who live in south carolina I have issues with him staying in office. Not for the affair. But for abandoning the state. He left no one in charge and could not be reached. That is a big breach of the rules. His affair is his business. Between him and his wife. But failing in the responsibilities of his job to the people of this state is a problem that is our business. People are already calling for him to resign. He says he is not going to resign. So now it is up to the state legislature to decide if they want to impeach him or not. But even if he does make it the next two years til his next election....there is no way he get re-elected. His career is done. Which is a shame because up until recently most south carolinians were happy with Sanford and his job performance.

most people here could care less about the affair. If it would have only been the affair he would not be in danger of loosing his job. What has got him into sooo much trouble was leaving the country with no one in charge. If he would have left the LT Gov in charge when he left then his job would be safe. How in the world his assistant let him go on vacation without signing that form is beyond me. It is standard practice when a gov. goes on vacation, no matter where they go.

I've heard he's made some political enemies. Do you think he was set up? This affair had been going on for quite awhile but now all the sudden he gets caught? I'm not defending him but perhaps someone thought it was time that all of this came out and they seized the opportunity.

Mark Sanford's affair has nothing to do with his job as governor. His apology should be to his wife and children. What does any of this have to do with George W. Bush?
