>What Cake?


Repugnant-Obstructionist-Clown-Governor Mark Sanford is out-of-touch with the rest of us here in South Carolina. I mean, what can you say about a man who spends hundreds of thousands of dollars redecorating his weekend home–only to put it on the market for 3.5 million dollars–while many in his state are without jobs?
He’s Let The Eat Cake Governor Mark Sanford.
And more than one of us down here, in a state whose unemployment rate is 104%–second highest in the nation–is angry with Mark Sanford. There is, now unemployed electrician, Everette Walker, who doesn’t need a nudge to tell you how he feels about the governor. “The man is selfish…Here’s a man with a $3.5 million home who doesn’t care if the rest of South Carolina can afford a loaf of bread. It sets me on fire.”
Walker thinks Sanford is failing on at least one of what’s called the “Three Cs” of Crisis Communication: Compassion; the other Cs are Competence and Confidence, and Sanford misses the mark on those, as well. See, Mark Sanford has been engaged in a war of words with the White House, hell, with anyone with a microphone and a notepad, over whether South Carolina should spend billions headed to the state on current programs or on debt reduction, which Sanford advocates.
There are those of us, including myself, who think Sanford is planning a presidential bid in 2012, and is using his opposition to the stimulus plan to win praise from Republican hardliners.
I got news for you, Mark. You don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of being president. Ain’t gonna happen.
While President Obama thinks the resources of the federal government can soften the economic blow, Sanford argues that the country needs to take its medicine. Government intervention can only prolong or worsen the pain, he says. What pain you talkin’ ’bout, Mark. You don’t feel the struggles that the average South Carolinian feels. You’re up there in your ivory tower, and lolling at your beach retreat; you don’t know what’s happening here.
There is no cake!
