He he, ho ho!!! Well if this isn't deflecting the issue I don't know WHAT IS!
Instead of just admitting what a slime ball Senator Sanford is for having an affair on his wife and leaving the country, his family, and his
constituents behind for five days with nary a word on his whereabouts (One ATS member tried to explain away his mysterious disappearance by suggesting
that maybe he was off to try to start a revolution: SC Gov Sanfod (sic) Not Missing But is
Actually Meeting Co Revolutionaries?
(thankfully in skunk works).
But this member obviously saw some kind of connection to Sanford's fight against the stimulus bill, leading to defeat, and his disappearance. This
connection wasn't above Rush Limbaugh's head either!! (Place your hand at the bottom of your jaw cuz it's gonna drop!)...
LIMBAUGH: He had just tried to fight the stimulus money coming to South Carolina. He didn't want any part of it. He lost the battle and said
"What the hell? The Federal government is taking over! I want to enjoy life!"
The rest is from the Huffington Post commentator who wrote the peice (I couldn't get the dang italics to go away...sorry)
And it goes on from there. Apparently, it's all President Barack Obama's fault, for killing people's "spirit," and making them so "fed up"
with the SADNESS that they've got no other choice but to abdicate their grown-up responsibilities and start philandering "before Obama takes away
their money" and "their house."
Are you done laughing yet? I can't keep the smirk off my face. This is one of the biggest deflections of responsibility I have EVER seen!
Look, I don't like Obama either but MY GOD! To suggest that Obama's policies drove this man to cheat on his wife several months BEFORE Obama even
took office and abandon his family for 5 day is just so....laughable.
Geeze...I can't wait til the radio/tv pundits start regurgitating this over and over until the populace that buys every single word these guys spew
out are convinced that it's Obama's fault he cheated on his wife.
Anyway, I really just had to put that out there. I think it just shows how much some people just can't accept that even their party is full of less
than noble politicians.
They're all human for Crimmeny sakes. Being part of one party or another (or any profession for that matter) doesn't suddenly endow you with powers
of unshakable loyalty and ethics.
This reminds me of the woman I heard on the Sean Hannity radio show. She called in to say that she wanted to say to all the republican politicians to
be good people, stop doing things that were unethical and ruining their families with this secret or that because they needed to prove that it's the
DEMOCRATS that are the corrupt political party and that couldn't be proven until they stopped acting like corrupt politicians.
I just can't believe people!
