Mark Sanford’s Sellout To The GOP Establishment Is Complete

“LUV GOV” SAYS HE WILL NOT SUPPORT DONALD TRUMP IF HE WINS THE GOP NOMINATION In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s panic time in the “Republican” party.  The populist insurgency channeled by surprise GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has the establishment wing of the party on the run. And let’s be honest…

“LUV GOV” SAYS HE WILL NOT SUPPORT DONALD TRUMP IF HE WINS THE GOP NOMINATION

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s panic time in the “Republican” party.  The populist insurgency channeled by surprise GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has the establishment wing of the party on the run.

And let’s be honest … the status quo has absolutely no one to blame for its dire situation but itself.

Anyway, the GOP elites have thrown everything they have at Trump in the run-up to this month’s Super Tuesday primary elections – with absolutely nothing to show for their efforts.

Hopping on their establishment bandwagon at the eleventh hour?  U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford – formerly known as the two-term “Luv Gov” of South Carolina.

Once a principled pro-freedom, pro-free market politician, Sanford has changed dramatically since returning to politics in 2013.  We’ve been chronicling his descent into mushy middle-dom (here, here and here), but Sanford emphatically affirmed his loyalty to the “Republican” status quo this week when he became a founding member of the U.S. House GOP’s “Not Trump” caucus.

“His candidacy is one I certainly can’t support,” Sanford told The Wall Street Journal this week.

Really? We wonder what did it …

Perhaps it was Trump’s opposition to the crony capitalist trade bill Sanford supported?  Maybe Sanford is afraid Trump will kill the crony capitalist subsidies he endorsed?

Who knows …

Maybe Jesus told Sanford to oppose Trump?  Sort of like Jesus told him to vote for liberal U.S. Speaker John Boehner last year?

That would explain it, right?

Sanford, Jesus Cheater extraordinaire, thinks he is taking a principled stand…more like sour grapes. He spent his political capital on the ambitions of his d!@k. Nice that the twosome can agree on politics despite their irrelevance.

Sanford seems to forget how many of the voters had to hold their noses to vote for HIM! His Whoever-is-a-TRUE-Christian-must-vote-for-Me Litmus Test is now even more laughable in the face of his many past and present choices.

Ah horseshit.Fits(Flip) is apparently pissed at Sanford for firing him for CDV conviction…he is pissed at Haley apparently because she dumped him as a nerd and ain’t no way Fits knows God.

That is why Fits spends 24/7 trying to ‘screw um all’.

In isolation, not a big deal. It isn’t in isolation though. The number of Republican elected officials saying the same thing is stunning. It’s reflective of the disdain that a “yuge” percentage of Republicans have for Drumpf. The proof will be in the November pudding, unless there’s a very big, and very quick, outbreak of sanity.

Money, power, and influence- the Establishment doesn’t want to lose it. The GOP voters have had enough of being controlled by Special Interests. Even “Liberty Trail blazer” Sanford is firmly at the trough of his handlers lapping it up. Look at his record- not about boutique issues where his vote doesn’t mean a hill of beans. He is a compromised politico looking to the Special Interests for survival.

Most of the Dem voters are zombies willing to be led by the oligarchy as long as they remain happy as dependents of the State. Their “breakout” candidate is just promising Even More of the Same.

Went to see him in June 2008 about closing down our landfills and de-centralizing our electric grid and realized then that nothing would be done. He did allow more time than I was allowed so that was a positive. So….here we are in 2016 and our troops suffer from burn-pit toxins because Plasma waste to energy converters were never even TURNED on after they were installed. Our troops would have witnessed new technology that was not being used to close down our own landfills here across America. So sad. Heck, where has Mark been concerning the FLINT fiasco. I guess as long as the “Speaker” of the House doesn’t talk about it then no other Rep is allowed to say anything. Guess if Mark is going to be considered a sellout then a I guess he is OUR sellout. We have so much potential in our state but no one wants to tell an old coot that new technology will close them down. New jobs will be created.

You’re so stupid. Literally, dumb as hell. Donald Trump is the ultimate crony capitalist. You’re aware of his eminent domain position and the actions he’s taken against average people, correct?

Eminent Domain can be unpleasant even with pros and cons weighed.

You accept Sanford’s sellout because he is trying to survive with the herd as an establishment hack. Under our damaged, progressive government, you survive as a capitalist as a pay-as-you go crony. Trump was a businessman and presumably partook but he sees where that has led our country. I know what Cruz will do: more polarization. He will be the flip side of Obama.

The sauce turned and the meat tainted. Despite it, Sanford, who has no taste buds anyway, has to make good come June on a formal alliance, once his youngest graduates hs. She’s holding him to that promise, bless her heart.
