TKC SUNDAY NIGHT CONTEMPLATION: GUV 'SANCHO' GREITENS SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO MISSOURI VOTERS IF HE WANTS FORGIVENESS & PATH FORWARD!!!



More than anything, Governor Eric Greitens has shown Missouri voters that he's inept, unconvincing and ultimately cowardly when confronted with a political crisis.

When the topic of admitted adultery and alleged revenge porn blackmail first confronted the Governor he quickly downplayed the story, hid behind his wife and family and refused to talk with the public except through terse social media statements authored with the help of his lawyer.

Later, he blamed Democratic Party operatives for his personal failings and reiterated the importance of his own family while refusing to acknowledge the havoc he helped to admittedly helped to create in another marriage.

Governor Eric Greitens has embroiled Missouri voters in a cringe-worthy public discussion over sexual politics, alleged revenge porn and cuckholding. He understood that his actions throughout his career were subject to public discussion before he ran for office but still chose to engage in a skeptical campaign where his "family values" were touted over those of his opposition.

And now he's laying low after all of the bluster and braggadocio of his campaign has been revealed as nothing but a marketing ploy.

Still, the people of Missouri are basically good folks and still support lower taxes and a great deal of the policies touted by the Sancho Guv.

Nevertheless . . .

If the Governor Eric Greitens wants to move past this controversy then he needs to apologize to voters for this nasty distraction that threatens to ruin his career as an elected official. Continuing to hide behind his military record, family, wife and cronies has failed the Governor. An open, honest apology TO VOTERS and not just his GOP lawmaker colleagues for a deceptive campaign and public disgrace would offer a new starting point wherein the people of Missouri could focus on policy over personality. Instead, it seems that pride holds the Governor back from a real commitment to public service.

Sadly, what's more likely is that the nasty topic of infidelity and alleged revenge porn cuckoldry will continue to plague the Governor who refuses to man up for mistakes now made public and instead transforms into the very kind of career politician that he once, hypocritically, rebuked.

Did Bubba Clinton ever apologize?

And yet he is still beloved.

Yeah, I know, Grietens said he was different.

He's not.

But at least he wants to cut taxes. I don't want to adore politicians, I just want them to do their job.

The governor staying quiet is probably his smartest move.

Why?

Because he knows this isn't the only scandal that's out there for him. If he apologizes now and another one of his lady friends comes up then he's going to look even worse. You're taking a politician at his word TKC. Big mistake. He's a sancho through and through. I respect him for not saying he's sorry if he's really not sorry. Only his Republican allies get a call because they're the only people who matter, not the little people (voters) who he doesn't need a favor from any time soon.

Not this guy's first trip to the BDSM rodeo imo.

Here’s the thing, if the slut was really hot and sexy, he doesn’t really owe an apology. If she is just average, he probably should apologize.

Never apologize!

The other side just says "its not sincere" or "its not enough" and comes after you harder>

Stare em down and fuck em later.

^^^ hasn't the governor fucked enough people already?

Only person he owes an apology to, his wife and family.

^^^ Agree. The governor can keep the focus on his policy but just talking about policy, the rest is just gossip!

You cannot tell me that the wife did not know exactly what hubby was in to.

She likes the money and the prestige that he gives to her.

Typical rich bitch.

If she's got kids to raise she probably in no position to leave.

He's on wife #2. I sense a pattern here. They believe God has forgiven him, so it's cool. I suspect there are more out there. Greitens career is juuuuuust about up. Ever talked politics with your buddies and said, I couldn't be a politician, I got that ticket for streaking in college (or other various transgressions)? I guess that just doesn't apply anymore. You always get caught.

Grow up. She has such a good case of everything on this asshole, that she could walk away from him with every penny. Some divorce lawyer is salivating over this one.

His "personality is corrupt and his policies wrong-headed. This could work out well.

To speak publicly on it, or apologize to voters just keeps the story alive and recharges his opposition.

He was a private citizen when he had the affair.

The blackmail aspect is a fabrication. The woman made up the "flash" photo part of her story as an excuse to her husband, whom she was in counseling with. It's easier to rationalize your slutty behavior if you say the guy was blackmailing you. Besides, she contradicted herself, by stating that she was blindfolded at the time. According to the story, Eric Greitens is the only person who could possibly know if a picture was taken, and he's said no. Case closed.

Did Bill Clinton apologize? I didn't realize today's story was about a 20 year old issue.

However, the answer is yes, he did.

Clinton publicly apologized at least half a dozen times for the affair, later acknowledging his original statement lacked the contrition many Americans were looking for.

Take a look at America today and it’s easy to see that morals have gone by the wayside. Everyone that is offended by what Greitens did is a puritanical hypocrite. This whole issue is between Greitens, his wife and his trick. Let them deal with it. Extramarital affairs have gone on since the beginning of time, and have been committed by administrations of both parties.
