WWJD (What Would John Do?)

John Edwards is an ambulance chaser who made millions of dollars by filing lawsuits that were excessive and based on junk science. This is a man who claimed that dead children spoke to him from the grave and told him what they were feeling. I am not sure which is worse, this carnival act or the idiots on the jury who believed it. Since John can hear the dead it should come as no surprise that Edwards is now telling us what Jesus would think and how he would feel.

Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards says Jesus would be appalled at how the United States has ignored the plight of the suffering, and that he believes children should have private time to pray at school.

“I think that Jesus would be disappointed in our ignoring the plight of those around us who are suffering and our focus on our own selfish short-term needs,” Edwards told the site. “I think he would be appalled, actually.” Breitbart

John Edwards is hitting on some serious stuff here about greed and war so let us see WWJD. This past Christmas Edwards, who has been bashing Wal Mart, had a staffer attempt to get one of the new video games (I think it was Play Station 3) ahead of others. Each Wal Mart had a small number to sell and most had a contest or a first come first served policy in order to get one. People stood in line all night and others were hurt trying to win contests in order to be able to buy one. Edwards had his staffer call and see if Wal Mart could hold one for the former Senator. Edwards used his greed to try and go ahead of others in a store chain that he has publicly railed against. He then said it was all a misunderstanding, which is what the left always says when they get caught.

John Edwards has milked millions of dollars from insurance companies and businesses in order to fatten his wallet. John Edwards has the biggest house in his county and it cost millions of dollars. In addition to all this “greed” Edwards voted for the war resolution when he was a Senator but of course now says he made a mistake. I guess that Jesus would only be upset with wars if we did not say we were sorry like John did. Of course, I have no way of knowing because the only things I can speak for Jesus are what he said in the Bible. I can not just tell you what else he is thinking like John Edwards can. The power to speak for Jesus must come to you when you are a charlatan lawyer who can hear dead kids talk.

John Edwards is probably a decent father and husband and I can not fault him for making real good money to take care of his family. I never fault anyone for making a living (an honest one) whether it is a minimum wage job or high priced lawyer. What I do object to is someone urinating in my face and telling me it is raining. Like Al Gore, Edwards talks the talk but he does not walk the walk and that might be because he really does not understand that he is in that America (of his two Americas theme) that involves a bunch of rich people. I think he actually does not know he is nowhere near like the rest of us in the other America (though I feel I am somewhere in between).

Edwards would do well to drop the act of pandering to poor people, anti-war zealots, and Christians and just run on what he really is. Oh wait, Democrats lose when they act like who they really are.

When Edwards tells us what Jesus would do he is pandering for votes because we already know what John would do.

  1. Ann Coulter should have called Edwards “an ambulance chaser.”

    It isn’t awesome how that happens? Wow. Being able to speak to the dead wouldn’t qualify him to speak for Jesus, however. Jesus is not dead, but alive. In each and everyone who will believe Him, accept Him into their heart as their Lord and Savioiur, and repent of their sins. Yes, then they are to be obedient. Do you know ANY politician that fits that mold nowadays? Hmm…

    Freudian slip? It’s supposed to read, “Isn’t it awesome…” Apparently I’m not that good at hiding my disgust. lol.

  5. Wild Thing says:

    Thank you so much for this post Big Dog. I am going to send it to some of my husband’s relatives that think Edwards is great. grrrrrrrrr

  6. Ogre says:

    Exactly right. Apparently at the DNC, the memo went out to court stupid church voters — so Edwards, Hillary, et al, are all suddenly finding religion and talking about Jesus. But it is nothing but pandering. I just wish more people had the brains to see through it.

  7. Edwards on Jesus…

    John Edwards interprets the words and thoughts of Jesus — for your entertainment…

    Liberalism is a mental disorder and talking to the dead proves it. I own horses and John shovels and dishes out more S- – – – then I do.

    It’s obvious that the liberals’ goal of dumbing down our educational institutions are as successful as their Socializing of our churches.

    Their success cannot be more evident as supported by articles such as this, and the upcoming articles we will see of liberals campaigning in churches, without the charge of violating ‘separation of church and state’ that they will constantly lob at conservatives who do the same.

    Their understanding of Jesus is as accurate as their understanding of ‘separation of church and state’ .
