I really want to like and

I really want to like and support Mark Sanford but I once felt that way about Sara Palin. This quote Of Sanford's bothered me:

"I am not writing to criticize Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. I respect his business judgment greatly, and his unenviable task is to find a short-term solution to problems grown by government over the long term. Whether his proposals are right or wrong is less the issue than the question of where we are, as a society, in terms of having government in the business of protecting people from their own financial decisions."

It seems to smack of pandering to me. I will withhold my judgment about Governor Sanford until I hear his views on foreign policy though, because he is heroic in his opposition to the Real ID.

Fairly decent article

for Sanford, all things considered.

I used to feel pretty optimistic about him, prior to his endorsement of McCain during this election cycle, when his endorsement would have meant alot for Ron Paul's chances to improve in the SC primary.

Then I started seeing thru him, once I started looking.

Here's the last line from the bottom of that article:
"Mark Sanford, a Republican, is governor of South Carolina. He represented South Carolina for three terms in the U.S. House and was formerly employed by Goldman Sachs."

Also, he attended the Bildergerger meeting this year.
Make no mistake, he's a "ring-knocker" that's trying to "pass", as the old people used to say.
However, if he says something that might help our cause, I'll accept it.
But I'm not going to trust him half as far as I could throw him.

I detect a number of Paul-ish like statements in Gov.

Sanford's writing. Perhaps we could say that it's a very paul-ished piece of writing ?
"An economy built on fiat money is a society on its way to ashes."
