Mark Sanford’s Liberal Hires Raise Eyebrows

BUT WILL THEY SWAY HIS VOTES?  || By FITSNEWS ||  As regular readers of this website are aware, Amy Lazenby (our former liberal guest columnist) is a solid writer.  Her pieces for FITS were always lucidly written, well-conceptualized and well-researched.  And more often than not they were very convincing.

BUT WILL THEY SWAY HIS VOTES? 

|| By FITSNEWS ||  As regular readers of this website are aware, Amy Lazenby (our former liberal guest columnist) is a solid writer.  Her pieces for FITS were always lucidly written, well-conceptualized and well-researched.  And more often than not they were very convincing.

But Lazenby is a self-identified liberal … which makes her hiring as the mouthpiece for a guy claiming to be one of the most “conservative” members of Congress a bit surprising.

Or is it?

FITS readers will recall Sanford hired a liberal environmental lawyer to be his chief of staff last year.  Prior to that he hired a liberal supporter of left-leaning South Carolina billionaire Darla Moore to run the day-to-day operations of his Washington, D.C. office.  Now he’s got a liberal managing his media?

What gives?

Is the “Luv Gov” switching parties? 

Obviously we don’t care nearly as much about an elected official’s staffing moves as we do about their record … although Sanford’s “prayerful” decision to vote for U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner (who immediately screwed taxpayers over big time on Obama’s executive amnesty) was quite telling.

That was a “gut-check” vote – and Sanford failed it.

Additional “gut-check” votes are coming up … on the crony capitalist Export-Import Bank and “Obamatrade,” to name just a couple … and Sanford will be squarely in the spotlight on both votes.

Will he stand with taxpayers?  Or be pulled further to the left?

We’ll find out soon enough …

If looking for sex I strong recommend electrolysis ;)

Rodeo Sex: That’s when a guy is having sex with his wife/girlfriend, and just when she starts having her orgasm you hold her tight and whisper in her ear, “you’re almost as good as your sister” —- then you try to hold on for 8 seconds!

True story.
A few decades back, my bride saw fit to interrupt a thoroughly delightful dream by waking me up.
She shouted, “WHO the hell you dreaming about?”
I replied ” ——“, who was her sister.
She calls sis and starts raising hell about my mis directed erotic dream, to which “Big Sis, said,”Ask him I am still as good as I was in school?”
The bride stayed pissed with both of us for a few months.

True Story: One night at John Pauls on St. Andrews Road we met two girls who seemed unusually happy. Chatting it up with them one said she was getting married in three weeks and she had a surprise for her husband. The other girl had been performing electrolysis on the bride-to-be’s pubic area —– creating a lovely valentine heart shape. This was the day it had been completed. Of course we guys were having a hoot about this. A few of us were lucky — she let us peek!

Amy Lazenby, despite bitching on here to the contrary, was not a bad writer or obectionable to me. She was head and shoulders above whiney liberal RINO, Taylor Brown. I wish Amy well in her new endeavor. If I think about it, I’ll send Amy a bottle of leather treatment in case she is unfortunate enough to have an encounter with Jenny. Perhaps if she gives Jenny a touch-up, it’ll put Jenny in a better frame of mind.

It’s not Amy Lazenby’s liberal politics that should raise concern. Instead, it’s her association with this website that makes her totally unfit for this new position. I do hope that she will heavily edit Sanford’s future Facebook posts.

Is Sanford trying to broaden his appeal as former supporters leave his tent?
Typically, a Narcissist’s relationship quality and/or quantity (friends, lovers, family) goes on a downgrade as people see him as his true self. Perhaps Sanford can’t get anyone else on the conservative side to take him seriously anymore? Not a great prospect.

Is Amy good friends with his Georgia gal? Maybe Amy is his cover when he hooks up?

Amazing, absolutely amazing!!
Sanford ran against Bob Peeler for Governor. No matter which one we elected, we would have gotten an adulterer who was involved with a married woman, a lying, cheating, immoral, cretin who ran on their faith and family values!
Then we get Richard Eckstrom another lying, feckless, adulterer and embarrassment!
T-Rav was elected as State Treasurer and within weeks indicted and found guilty of drug trafficking and drug use.
Ken Ard elected Lt Governor and immediately had to resign for Ethics violations!
Bobby Harrell, our House Speaker, indicted on corruption and resigned.
James Metts, longest serving Sheriff in SC. Indicted on bribery and corruption charges and alleged adulterer. Bob and Donna Peeler bragged their affair was “no big deal, Metts had done the same thing and they were in good company”! What? Adultery and the destruction of three families, no big deal, good company?
Our incompetent Governor, unethical, lying Chief Executive! If she was not guilty, why was her affair, the talk of the Capitol in 2007? She was a nobody, do nothing 2nd term House member! On nobody’s radar to be anything more!
What in the Hell are we electing in this State?

Well no. Seems to me that we the people are waking up to the reality that it is not our Democratic Republic that is bad, but the elites and special interests of both parties that are abusing it. We the people must expose and vote out the corrupt. The Statist approach just increases their largesse while diminishing our freedoms.

TroubleBaby March 14, 2015 at 4:19 pm

“elites and special interests of both parties that are abusing it”

That’s been going on for a long, LONG time. “People” aren’t “waking up” to anything. The cycle will continue as it’s continued for 100+ years, until it collapses in on itself.

The question is when and what form of gov’t will replace it.

If Amy Lazenby has worked for Mark Sanford, Tom Davis and Thomas Ravenel, she is a Libertarian.
No self-respecting liberal would work for a single one of that bunch. Get real.
If this Libertarian blog identifies her as a ‘liberal’ because it had her write about ‘liberal’ positions similar to Rand Paul joining forces with Cory Booker over medical marijuana and criminal sentencing, it still doesn’t make her a liberal.
The only people stupid enough to fall for that line are the MSM in their never ending quest for a ‘bipartisan’ Republican.
