John Edwards’ Two Americas

During the 2004 election John Kerry’s running mate, John Edwards, gave passionate talks about the “Two Americas.” Edwards, a millionaire ambulance chaser, talked about the America where some kids go to private schools (like his kids) and then there is public school for the rest of us. Edwards wanted people to believe that he was one of the people in the second America and that he wanted to get all of us into one, better America. The truth is, Edwards is in the elitist America he tried to use to divide the country. His passionate discussion showed how he is able to claim, in court, to have dead kids speak to him and actually have jurors believe him.

It looks like John is still content in living in the elite America while screwing the people in the rest of America. He also shows a great deal of hypocrisy at the same time. Edwards has been a vocal critic of Wal Mart. That is nothing new because almost all Democrats are critics of Wal Mart because the retail giant has not bowed down to the left’s might union thugs. While John Edwards was at a conference of union backed activists criticizing Wal Mart, one of his staffers was calling Wal Mart to obtain a Playstation 3 for the former Senator. From a Wal Mart press release:

Wal-Mart had noted in a news release Thursday that on the same day Edwards was criticizing the company in a conference call with union- backed activists, the volunteer staff member had asked a Raleigh, N.C., electronics department manager to obtain a PS3 for the ex- senator’s family.

From Wal-Mart headquarters in Bentonville, Ark., company spokesman David Tovar said the person who called left a voicemail at the Raleigh store and identified himself as an Edwards staff member. When the manager returned the call, the staff member again identified himself as working for Edwards, and Wal-Mart said it confirmed that with Edwards’ office.

The retailer’s news release accused Edwards of not wanting to wait his turn.

“While the rest of America’s working families are waiting patiently in line, Senator Edwards wants to cut to the front,” the Wal-Mart statement said. Breitbart

Edwards says that he and his wife did not know that the staffer was doing this and that his wife feels terrible about this. It seems a bit strange to me that a staffer would be using Wal Mart knowing that the boss is critical of the company. It is also amazing that the staffer would use Edwards’ name to obtain the item. While I believe that Edwards is not above trying to use his status to get something (the other America) I do not think he is dumb enough to have a staffer use his name at a Wal Mart.

Interestingly, his staffer was too stupid to realize the ramifications of his actions. Regardless of what the reason, the fact that the staffer used Edward’s name to get something shows that this is probably a pattern and that Edwards likes being on the elite side of the Two Americas.

This man wants to run for the Presidency in 2008. Keep things like this in mind when you are sizing up the candidates.

    Hey Good article, how about when Kerry said :”You know, education–if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq” John Kerry. I think that un respectful of our troops dying in Iraq.

    He really supports the troops, doesn’t he?

    I wonder if he feels left out when all the new big wigs are running around the Senate.

    It is obvious to me that Edwards and his wife have begun to poison their six year old son’s mind thatWalmarts is no good. Apparently the junior donk Edwards has belittled his kindergarten classmates for buying shoes at Walmart.

    Edwards, the Democrats’ vice-presidential candidate in 2004, spoke Wednesday to supporters of union-backed WakeUpWalMart.com on a conference call launching the group’s holiday season campaign to pressure Wal-Mart for better labor standards.

    In the call, he repeated a story about his son Jack disapproving of a classmate buying sneakers at Wal-Mart.

    “If a 6-year-old can figure it out, America can definitely figure this out,” Edwards said.

    Previously, Edwards has appeared at WakeUpWalMart rallies.

    Big Dog, how the hell does a six year old start talking crap and belittle his classmates, unless he learned if his old man and old lady?

    The news media did not catch that or the meda is completely ignoring the connection.

    Bloggers, please start exposing Edwards warping his son’s mind. Even a six year old can figure out mental abuse.

    **** Edwards, his wife, and all the other bs spreaders around Washington DC.
