    I don't like him. He's our Governor and acts like the people of this state are beneath him. And no, I'm not talking about him not taking the stimulus money. He would be a terrible president. Read up on him.

    He's got a good Congressional record, and I like that he was willing to fight against the stimulus. That's really all I know about him, and I'm sure people from his state have a much better opinion of him than I do.

    That reminds me, I also like the fact that he stood up to Lindsey Graham when Graham was insulting Libertarians and Ron Paul.

    Yeah.....He says it....But so did those republican "revolutionaries" back in '94.

    And that one fizzled out inside of a year....Paxon and Armey tried to take over, and the east coast inside-the-beltway milquetoast mob -led by Gingwad no less- bitch slapped 'em.

    Sanford is not too bad.

    Not sure he is a viable 2012 contender though. I hear he is pondering the idea though.

    The next 6-12 months will see the next small group of Republican top tier leadership emerge - he has a better than fair chance of being among them.
