Still have doubts about the spine of John Edwards? Huh?
OK, surely the fact that Mr. Edwards has extreme difficulty facing reporters, who do not necessarily subscribe to his brand of politics, grabbed your attention… did it not? Well, it should have!
I am from Edwards’s home state. Either one! He lays claim to “The Carolinas”. Like him, I was born in South Carolina and spent over half my life in North Carolina. So, I have a pretty fair handle on Mr. Edwards… at least as far as his politics goes. And it ain’t good!
The folks over at World Net Daily have a piece you should read. It’s titled “John Edwards the Wuss”! It is written by Barbara Simpson. She sums it up pretty well.
We recommend you visit World Net Daily and read it. You’ll find it at:
You know, it says something about a politician when the people of his own state will not vote for him on a national ticket. But, then, I don’t expect you to listen to Tar Heels who have experienced his “leadership” in Washington. Suffice it to say that had NC not had ANOTHER representative in the Senate we would have had NO representation in that body. THIS state has had all it wants, and then some, of Edwards. And… we do not wish him on the remaining 49 states!
Actually, North Carolina hasn’t had a REAL Senator since Jesse Helms retired. Now, Jesse was a “North Carolina kind” of Senator. He didn’t mince words, he was plain spoken, and everyone knew where he stood on all the issues. Jesse continued to be elected by Democrats, and Republicans alike, from this state. Unfortunately, there is not likely to be another Jesse Helms… and we are the worse for it.
The point is… North Carolina has had the best Senator possible for the state. On the other hand we have had the worst, too. I believe I pointed out whom the best was. It’s up to you to decide the worst.
Senators are rarely elected to the position of President of the US. Most folks believe they are not trained for it. They have no “executive” background… is one way to put it. But, ask yourself this… if a former Senator has the reputation of having been one of the worst Senators, ever, how, then, can we expect him to be even a passable President? That’s the question all you folks in the 49 other states have to ask yourselves. As for the Tar Heels, we made that decision a while back.
