Mark Sanford wants to change the subject

Posted By on Wed, Jul 22, 2009 at 9:21 AM

So, let's get this straight:

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford wants to stop talking about his affair. An affair that he hasn't been able to stop talking about. An affair that has cost the taxpayers money and anyone who doesn't believe that is a fool.

But now, since you're not with your soul mate and you're trying to fall in love with your wife again, you want to change the subject?

The State Newspaper in Columbia reports that Sanford told people in Greer it was time to move on.

Gov. Mark Sanford said it was time for the state to move on from the weeks-long debate about whether he should stay or resign following his admission of an extramarital affair.

Sanford spoke at the Greer office of the Department of Motor Vehicles to discuss concerns about a federal ID program, his first public appearance in weeks.

But isn't it hard to move on when the governor hasn't done an honest day's work since he lied about hiking?

How does he still have a job? He left the state without leadership to have an affair, then he kept talking about the woman, then he had to take a vacation with his wife and her family. We are all in the wrong business.

Is it time to change the subject or is it time to send Sanford on a vacation that he won't come back from? Shouldn't the governor do the right thing and resign? Isn't that what then Congressman Sanford wanted President Bill Clinton to do?
