Bill Connor Enlists Wife In Pursuit Of “Calling”

Orangeburg, S.C. attorney and Afghan War veteran Bill Connor can’t talk enough about his military service and his faith in the Almighty … in fact his 2014 campaign for the U.S. Senate is already shaping up very much like his unsuccessful bids for S.C. lieutenant governor (2010) and S.C.

Orangeburg, S.C. attorney and Afghan War veteran Bill Connor can’t talk enough about his military service and his faith in the Almighty … in fact his 2014 campaign for the U.S. Senate is already shaping up very much like his unsuccessful bids for S.C. lieutenant governor (2010) and S.C. Republican Party chairman (2011) on those two fronts.

In other words, Connor is crisscrossing the state speaking to sparsely populated gatherings of intellectually incurious geriatrics (a.k.a. SCGOP and “Tea Party” meetings) promoting himself as a war hero who loves Jesus and his family with all his heart.

Think you love this country?  Bill Connor loves it more. Just don’t mention America’s failed global interventionist foreign policy … 

Anyway, for reasons surpassing understanding an article ran in The Daily Caller this week in which this shyster lays it on especially thick …

“This is as much about – perhaps more – a calling than a campaign,” Connor said of his Senate bid. “My wife Susan and I spent untold hours in prayer about whether or not we were to do this. In the end, it wasn’t about me or us, or the office. The struggles and sacrifices with any campaign in the modern era – particularly one in which so much is at stake – is almost not worth any personal reward on the backend. Victory lies in the faith required to take the next step to further the causes of what we believe is right.”

Really, dude?  Really?

And of course Connor is blasting this article out (unsolicited, we might add) to every email address he can find.

“Please help push this article out, particularly to the veteran community,” he writes.

What a joke this guy is …

We especially love it when Connor ropes his poor wife into his political grandstanding, seeing as his infidelity as a husband is probably the worst kept secret in South Carolina politics (you know, since the previous “worst kept secret” got out there a few years ago).

But hey … everything must be good now because they are now spending “untold hours” together in prayer, and jointly girding against the “struggles and sacrifices” of seeking higher office.

Jeez.  Vomit.

Make no mistake, this website desperately wants to see incumbent U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham – a fake war hero – defeated.  In fact while mainstream media outlets in South Carolina (and beyond) habitually praise Graham for “reaching across the aisle” and “getting things done,” this website has consistently called him out for failing to protect our tax dollars and our freedoms.

Graham is a disease … but hypocrites like Bill Connor are most assuredly not the cure.

The last time he ran for statewide office we implored Connor to drop the sanctimonious moralizing and offer up specific pro-free market, pro-freedom proposals.  He failed to do so, and as a result was trounced … which of course led to this black eye for the state.

At the time we wondered why Connor failed to heed our advice … but now we get it: He just can’t help himself.  Which explains why he’s so willing to take down himself – and his family – in the name of advancing his lust for significance.

Please … would someone tell us where that fits in with his professed Christian faith?

Of course this isn’t completely Connor’s fault … as snake oil such as the sort he peddles wouldn’t sell unless there was a market for it.

And boy is there ever a market for it in the Palmetto State. Despite this website’s best efforts to enforce some long-overdue common sense accountability, South Carolina remains a state where anybody can say pretty much anything in an effort to get elected … and have vast swaths of easily impressionable voters go along for the ride.

And as long as candidates and elected officials exploit the natural gullibility of the average South Carolinian (as opposed to educating them), nothing will change …

He is unelectable because people see right through him. Just spend 5 minutes with him, and it’s obvious.Bil is all about Bill.

Mixing religion and politics is fine with me as long as they worship the one true god–the Flying Spaghetti Monster. May its noodly appendages intertwine with all branches of government and control the lives of believers and nonbelievers alike.

The natural gullibility of the average South Carolinian. That is one of those incalculable, mind blowing concepts. It is comparable to the question of how big is the universe?

Wrap yourself in the Flag, tote the BIBLE.
That’s the ticket.
Almost forgot, get a third degree Masonic rating, so you can wear the RING, and do the “dead fish”, knuckle squeeze, handshake.

Bill got his “Combat Medal” in Afghanistan for shooting his rifle out of a Humvee window (following his stopping the convoy). It could have ended in disaster – an insurgent RPG strike. His military reputation? “Consistently places himself above his subordinates at significant risk.” Sounds about like his political campaigns!

Close… He shot a pistol out of the passenger seat window of a moving supply truck. Sound ridiculous? Connor wrote an article about it to highlight his prowess in “the field”

This man wants it bad. So sad he is manipulating his wife (whether she knows it or not) to help him get it. I think Jenny needs to do an intervention. Or, Susan needs to read ChumpLady.com

I’ve chatted with Connor at a couple of these “sparsely populated
gatherings of intellectually incurious geriatrics,” and I get it–he’s
talks himself up. But…he’s running for office. Is he supposed to talk
himself down? That would be stupid.

The dude made a mistake
several years ago. One that he appears to have remedied seeing as that
he’s still with his wife. Should he never seek office, even if otherwise
qualified? (Of course, what makes you qualified? and is he otherwise
qualified? Well, that answer is a matter of voter perspective, I assume)

At what point does some who has made an egregious mistake not become a hypocrite anymore…or do they ever? Is that just the nature of round the clock news and insomnia-driven bloggers? Probably so.

He made a mistake. He has to live with that. He’s also chosen to run for office; therefore, putting him and his mistake in the public eye. He has to live with that too. We, as voters, must decide if we can forgive. I can get past his personal indiscretions, and I can be OK with the fact that he’s also a Christian who made a mistake. It’s time to look at the issues.

The biggest problem in politics with those who have something like an affair in their past is the possibility that someone will later blackmail them with it while they are in office. Well, it’s out there already. People know about it, so let’s look at issues and where the candidates stand.

You ask: Should he never seek office, even if otherwise
qualified?

He’s NOT qualified – that’s the point. You would think after losing party chairman and Lt. Governor he’d get the message, go home, develop his business/leadership skills and learn some life lessons. But he hasn’t. In his head, it’s all about Bill Connor, all the time.

14 members of that group. One or two may have served with him in Afghanistan (doubtful). The rest look like Kool-Aid drinkers.

Someone should ask these bible thumpers real bible questions to humiliate them in public – like “Where in the bible does it say ‘God creates evil?'” and “What did Jesus say to the rich man who asked how to get into heaven?”

Everyone making disparaging remarks about any of the four Republican candidates is working right into Grahamnasty (RINO)SC’s hands. Let’s wait till June to tear down a candidate. As I have said before Graham is the enemy, not each other. Bright isn’t a great businessman, Connor isn’t a great lawyer, Mace isn’t a great ad. executive, Cash isn’t a great ice cream salesman but any of them is a better AMERICAN and patriot than Graham. Don’t take your eyes of the ball.

This looks like the not so Bright crowd piling on Connor. why????? Grahamnasty is the one all of us need to be piling on. I think I read somewhere that Bright has a trucking co. that isn’t operating. That is called a junk yard. By the time Grahamnasty gets through with his financial woes Bright will be even less bright. If he wins the primary I will support him but he is the least electable of the four. I wonder if Grahamnasty is writing these anti-Connor rebuttals ? Makes you think don’t it ?? That would be a good strategy, write postings against the other candidates while hiding under these oddball names. Any of the four candidates are better than Grahamnasty but Connor is the best one of the four. RESTORE HONOR VOTE BILL CONNOR.

There’s nothing honorable about Bill Connor. Not ten minutes after cheating on his wife, or ten years later. I’d suggest a new slogan.

I bet Jesus wants – nay, NEEDS – that guy to be in the Senate as soon as possible, lest Divine plans be thwarted by Graham and militant Islam. Look for the legions of angelic beings (Della Reece) flooding voting booths to make sure Bill Connor is elected.

Bill Connor’s wife has nothing compared to Joe Nelms “Smoking Hot Wife” in his NASCAR prayer prior to the race. He thanked the US race car manufacturer, Ford, and foreign race car manufacturers, Dodge and Toyota; but he didn’t thank the other US race car manufacturer, Chevrolet.

Will Bill Connor give a prayer prior to the start of Darlington where he says he loves boinking his wife?
