Insert foot in mouth.



During an emotional interview at his Statehouse office with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Sanford said Chapur is his soul mate but he's trying to fall back in love with his wife.

Seriously? Who says that? To a newspaper, no less! Oy. Your wife is going to cut you, man. Like, seriously cut you while you sleep.

HERE.

I don't understand WHY he is still talking about it. Or why HIS WIFE IS. Why are they playing this out in front of us? The sooner they shut up, the sooner it's over. (I am a genius. I need my own PR agency.)

I thought the same thing when i read that today. His wife is rich, smart, and classy. I love her comment to the press about how his career might be affected - "his career is not my concern".

I would just be so brokenhearted if the man in my life told the world that someone else is his soul mate. The act of saying that on the record is a betrayal worse than the cheating, in my mind. You can fuck up privately, but now he's fucking up publicly. He needs to get a grip.

He is such a hot mess that it's not even funny. I'd be so in divorce court. It's not just this women but the so called "little things" with others too. Pla-eaze. It's sad and so disrespectful.

He sounds like a narcissist who thinks we are all invested in whether or not he has love in his life. The man must have been coddled and protected all of his life to be so clueless. Send him to my house and I'll give him a few lessons in real love. He can change my daughter's diapers and carry her around for me. He won't be giving interviews after that.

he seriously said that?

THIS is why I don't watch the news.

I agree Decorno: it seems like he is trying to make his cheating not so bad because he cares about the person he slept with. Doesnt make it any better!

And what is it with politicians wifes putting up with all this bs from their husbands? Is there some kind of contract they sign, that they have to stick with him for his career?
Even if you are married for 20 years, there are things that cannot be undon.

Sorry, I think the wife is a bitch! We all make mistakes, fall in and out of love, and shock horror even may have affairs and leave our husbands/wives - but that doesn't mean that we can't have access to OUR children. He is still his children's father - not perfect (thank goodness not my husband) but how dare she say he can't have access to them until he chooses her!

RLG said...

The Washington Post just did a spread on the Governor, and I swear you could hear violins playing -- 'it's not just an affair, they're in love.' WTF? What kind of example is he setting for his sons? Ouch.

Good luck to the kids. Couldn't care less about the parents.

What's with this person? Can't his staff find the duct tape for his mouth? Get an emergency divorce. Audit state funds for possible misuse. Review South Carolina laws to see if any crime or misdemeanor has taken place that requires prosecution.

And for those of us who are more truly offended by this man who had the audacity to judge other people's morality by his own standards, let us never forget this and the party he so righteously represented. We need to get this kind of conversation out of politics. But until we do, we need to hold these standard bearers accountable. By Sanford's behavior in the Clinton mess, Sanford should resign or be impeached.

I think they're both idiots. Him for running off at the mouth and her for spouting bible passages as some kind of solution to the problem.

Can this marriage be saved? Why would either of them want it to be? I guarantee that those 4 boys would be a lot healthier if they had two relatively sane parents living apart than if they remain in a cold, sterile marriage full of recriminations.

Iheartfashion said...

Yes, the whole "soul mate" comment really set my teeth on edge, along with the talk about "trying" to fall back in love with his wife. So much worse than the original act. She needs to dump him. Fast. And shut up about it.

Katie F. said...

This guy's such a douchebag! I feel bad for his staff. I bet they're trying to clean up this mess and get it out of the public forum but he. just. keeps. talking. about. it!

Guy's a douche. Cheating's cheating. Only a politician would try to spin it and play the romantic factor by dropping 'soulmates.'

Call me a pure cynic but....this soulmates thing is bullshit. Sack up, shut up, and leave your family out of the media.

embarrassed by my Gov. said...

I'm a SC gal. How does that saying go. . .'Better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.'

Governor. Dude. Shut. up.

This happened to me - my husband said his mistress was his soul mate - and it was probably the worst experience of my life. That said, we stayed together (some 70% of marriages recover from affairs), but I never really got over it. The door is open, and I advise her to run far and fast and don't look back. He will do it again, guaranteed.

This guy is a serial fucker. I can tell, because he also admitted to a "handfull" of other relationships. What a bozo. What an immature sneak. His wife would show more class if she kicked his sorry ass to the curb. His three boys don't need the day to day influence of their immoral father. His attractive wife will hopefully find a moral and faithful man to help her raise her boys. The ex will become the Disney Dad. The serial fucker can go off with his sould mate and she can pick up his dirty underwear and buy his prilosec and preperation H for him from now on. I bet he smells bad too. Yuk. Cheaters are soooo unattractive.

Oh...and that John Edwards is another pig. Don't get me started. Those two jerks would make great roommates.

Ms. Pea said...

What is the big deal here? Every time a politian reveals himself to be a jerk, we act like we're all surprised and outraged. Wake up folks-people have affairs. Everyday. From all walks of life, including politics. I've never seen why affairs are such a HUGE deal to Americans.

And, another thing, why does this relationship matter to any of us? Only the two people in the relationship have the right to be outraged/hurt/angry, or not, about these matters. They'll either work it out or they won't. Why do we have the right to pass judgement on them?

Decs said...

Why does it matter? Because he keeps talking about it. If he would shut up it would go away.

Barbara said...

It's so hurtful to be betrayed emotionally. I would hate to think that my husband would rather chat with someone other than me. I can understand him wanting sex with someone else. HEE HEE
