South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford expressed his apologies to his staff during a meeting with his cabinet Friday.

"I had not yet had a chance to apologize to you all personally, I wanted to do so. I've made general apologies to the people of South Carolina or to staff at large, but you all are the epicenter of that team, you know, through about 65,000 state employees serves the people of South Carolina and so I wanted generally to apologize to every one of you all for letting you down," said Sanford.

John Amato:

It's kind of weird seeing him apologizing again on camera. I expected him to play the Bible card though and he did.

The Republican governor, apologizing to state agency chiefs today for keeping them in the dark when he left for Buenos Aires for a rendezvous with his lover, told the Palmetto State's Cabinet that King David will offer a guiding path for him.

King David fell mightily, the governor reminded his Cabinet, but picked up the pieces and built from there. The analogy may end in Argentina, however.

When the The FOX News All-Star panel tells a Republican it's over, I think he should take the hint.

Krauthammer: I think he is toast politically and resigning from the Republican Governor's Association chairmanship is not going to do it and the reason is that there's dereliction of duty here...
