Report issues, don’t create them
It seems that the media and other sources are screaming for blood from disgraced South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford because of his personal problems. To me this is as ridiculous as the ‘witch hunt’ that was mounted by the Republicans against former president Bill Clinton because of personal issues in his life even though his job performance was far above-average.
I don't know a lot about the governor’s job performance but I would like to think that his constituents would judge by that rather than by gossip and hearsay concerning his marital problems, and spare his family the pain and embarrassment — a courtesy not shown to Clinton.
This event has had far too much airtime and the networks need to give it a rest until there is a real story, such as misuse of taxpayer money in any escapades he may have had.
We have enough real issues to deal with without manufacturing more.
