It’s appalling how Stanford can but his interest above the people who elected him into office – this won’t happen again because he will not be re-elected.

neo CON alert! The trolls are out in force with their $5.00 an hour jobs posting here. If anyone ever sees babblingbrook, he sounds moderate, that's what the neo CONS do. They try and sound like they make a little sense, he's among the worst! Ignore the troll, he goes away

Me? I'm not moderate! I'm basically a libertarian. Right now I am in the office between patients. Nobody pays me to do this.

ASSUME! When you ASSume, U make an ASS of U and---U! Not me! At that point, I break with Felix Unger...

If I don't make sense, why don't you simply give an example and explain it? The problem is really that I do make sense--and it messes up your faith-based political DOGMA!

As soon as a swine flu vaccine is developed the Governor will make his point by refusing that for South Carolina. You can't keep a good conservative down- or expect them to behave nornally either.

Another republican, revealing it's ignorance for all to see.

Can you put your country before your party?

He could always do what was done in Massachusetts. Our Democratic, teachers' union supported, Governor has removed all $419 million dollars in education spending from next years budget, and will use education stimulus money to replace it. In effect, he's using the education stimulus money for something else. The stimulus money that was given to keep education barely floating for a couple years is not being put somewhere else.

So, in our two-party system, who do I vote for next time? The Republican who looks education in the eye when killing it, or the Democrat who sneaks up behind and slips the knife in the back? I'll do like I always do, and vote for whatever alternative party candidate seems the best. Then I'll get called a nut, and people will ask me why I throw my vote away.

Sorry for the rant. I'm a little bitter and a lot disappointed.

if that is what is going on up there, then you have a right to be upset.

How can someone have aspirations for the presidency when he gets his arse kicked by a female high school student?

This raised his profile all right,....but not in a way he's going to benefit.
08:44 AM on 06/05/2009
I believe he will benefit. I believe this was exactly the wrong way to get that money. Guys like this gov and Palin, they wanted to be forced to take the money. It gives them a perfect story. "I stood by my guns. I said no to big government, deficit spending, etc. I was forced by an activist court and..." you get the idea. They get the money and the hero worship by their base for not caving into liberal economic waste.

Under leadership like his, SC won't improve, and the Repubs will be able to say they were forced to take the money and it didn't help. Of course he's not appealing the ruling. I don't know how he's keeping from laughing maniacally.

Sanford got outmaneuvered by the Democrats. His presidential ambitions were well known and the Dems anticipated that he would refuse the funds to score points---so they inserted the special clause in the bill to circumvent it. The most brilliant move however, was reframing the issue by having a STUDENT challenge him in court on the grounds of "refusing to fund education"---which by the way is only one aspect of the bill. All of sudden, the narrative becomes "Stanford refuses to fund public education". Regardless of how the state supreme court ruled, that narrative sticks. And refusing to fund education is a loose/loose position for any politician of any party. Checkmate!

The Republicans continue to play “Checkers" while the Democrats are playing "Chess"

It's obvious that the man hopes Obama's budget plans fail and he will do everything in his political power to try and make that happen. I don't see how that is helping the people he represents. It is nonsense to call people like these public servants. They have more in common with European Aristocrats.

You are to kind. Sanford is more like a common thug.
07:41 AM on 06/05/2009
Yeah, but in strict political terms he probably will look at this as a victory. When he starts campaigning for the nomination he'll point to this and say he stood up for his conservative values and it was the ACTIVIST judges who made the decision. The validity of his statement is irrelevant. The average Republican has no tolerance for to details and facts. Activist judges is all they need to hear, even if the Judges are elected officials.

I agree somewhat. Some people will always be ignorant of reality. Especially in the Deep South. I remain optimistic that South Carolina and other southern states are starting to see that people like Sanford have not, and will never serve them well. The people must look to something other than the same formula that has governed the South for decades. It is becoming painfully obvious to some, but it is time for wholesale changes, and a NEW SOUTHERN STRATEGY, one that seeks to elevate all of the citizens, and not just the wealthy aristocracy.

spend 100 percent of the national budget on education. its the politcally correct thing to do.

It would certainly be better than spending half of the yearly budget on war toys.

Infrastructure and education enables you to surf the next wave. Green energy and development of the 3rd world, the only hope for your economy.

What a pathetic political wannabe...It is truly amazing that the likes of Sanford, Pawlenty and the rest of their ilk are reacting in such an extreme fashion in order to run against President Obama and place obstacles in his way at every crossroad. They are behaving like some lunatic fringe group.
09:17 AM on 06/05/2009
They are looking at the future and the future is bleek. There will not be the funding to sustain all this spending. They are attempting to do the right thing. The selfish citizens of the United States are facing collapse but like a spoiled child keep saying, "but I want it".
