The Family Values Party

Once again, Republicans are all about putting family first:

MR. GREGORY: …Governor Mark Sanford disappeared for five days then announced that, in fact, he’d had a mistress, he was visiting a mistress in Argentina. He misled his staff, he misled the voters. Should he resign?

SEN. GRAHAM: Well, the first thing, I’m the godfather of Mark and Jenny’s youngest child, so I’m just going to put that on the table. My main focus right now is can this marriage be saved? Can these kids have a mom and dad to guide them through life? That is my main focus. I think if Mark can reconcile with Jenny, and that’s not going to be easy, that he can finish his last 18 months. He’s had a good reform agenda. And I do believe that if, if he can reconcile with his family and if he’s willing to try, that the people of South Carolina would be willing to give him a second chance. But he’s also got to reconcile the legislature. If he can get his family back together, I think he can continue out his term and maybe do some good things next year.

…Or maybe it would be easier for Sanford to put his marriage back together and reconcile with his wife and kids if he’s not trying to run a state, fend off calls for resignation and impeachment, and dodge the media spotlight on his affair.

He said he was resigning as chairman of the Republican Governors Association so he would have more time to repair his marriage, but that’s a band-aid on a sucking chest wound.  If he really wants to save his marriage, he should make that his full-time job for a while.
