John Edwards = Multi-millionaire playing poor man "from humble roots" (That garbage he played the last time he lost the election.), reaching out to the non-electorate - I guarantee you that only one or two of those people he was playing poor man with has ever voted in a national election. And why in the hell did those people wait so long to clean up their backyard? Do they think there is some constitutional right to having "The Man" clean up waste after hurricanes? All he was doing was "helping" the laziest people in the United States.

His little stunt down in NOLA was pathetic, blatant politics - bad politics that is. He pretty much lost the election right off the bat by announcing that he planned to raise taxes. I'm sure the "Guilt-ridden Rich" love his socialistic take on philanthropy, but only a hack would vote for that moron.

Probably correct, since most were teenagers.

And why in the hell did those people wait so long to clean up their backyard? Do they think there is some constitutional right to having "The Man" clean up waste after hurricanes?

Because it wasn't a "they," it was the home of 54 year-old Orelia Tyler who, I speculate, after sixteen months, must have given up on "the man."

All he was doing was "helping" the laziest people in the United States.

Damn straight! Those lazy ass teenagers wouldn't have even been in the picture if that lazy ass Orelia had gotten off her lazy ass last year when it was only 53 years old and cleaned up her own damn yard.

Yes indeed You Tube is a valuable campaign tool:

Alan continues to confirm my worst thoughts about Republicans in general and idiots specifically.

DrFrankLives

I've been to New Orleans and worked, you jerk, and I can assure you there is nothing lazy about the people trapped in that situation.

The home Edwards was working on is nearly completed, as the volunteers were working on the yard.

BUt you drive down any street in New Orleans, and you see empty half-destroyed house after empty half-destroyed house. none of which can be rebuilt until the City or the Feds or who knows who allows the tear down, or the rebuild, or turns the power on.

It's hell on earth, trapped in a kafka novel. And people like you don't do anyone any favors by being assholes about it.

The CA

Wait a minute Dr. Frank, Ed does not allow such partisanship on this board e.g., calling Republican's idiots. That's considered offensive and ill-mannered and you are likely to be attacked for such statements.

Wait, I'm sorry, you were attacking Republicans- in that case it's alright. Nobody will call you on it or attack you for it. They will in fact, remain silent. Now if you were attacking Democrats, well, that would be a different story.

The CA

"The home Edwards was working on is nearly completed, as the volunteers were working on the yard."

I assume you are speaking of Edwards new house in Chapel Hill and not charity work in New Orleans.

Roch101

"Nobody will call you on it or attack you for it."

Not those of us who read for comprehension instead of distorting what is written to try to sustain a tiresome left/right view of everything. Dr. F did not call Republicans idiots, as you would like to read it. He said ACB was a Republican and an idiot. Now, we can discuss whether it is polite to call someone an idiot or a Republican, but let's not pretend that Dr. F. was "calling Republicans idiots."

Fred Gregory

CA. I think Dr Frank called someone on this thread an asshole. Oh, well Ed, might give him a warning.

In the meantime Ashley Cruseturner( A Waco Farmer ) of the Bosque Boys reports from NOLA:

"CA. I think Dr Frank called someone on this thread an asshole.'


He also called someone a jerk too, Fred.

It means the same thing in Libspeak, especially when you understand their keywords.

Yep, if I was "common folk" I'd sure be impressed that an ambulance-chaser worth $30 million who lives in a $3.1 milion mansion was looking out for ME. Sure I would...

Bubba

"I'd sure be impressed that an ambulance-chaser worth $30 million who lives in a $3.1 milion mansion was looking out for ME."

A millionaire, who lives in mansion,who made his money exploiting the system, announces his presidential candidacy in a New Orleans grandstander move.

Classic.

I think Edwards is right when he talks about "Two Americas". It's just his definition of those groups that's faulty.

One of the "Two Americas" is the Users and Abusers group, to which he is a charter member.

The other is everyone else.

The CA

No, Roch. Dr. Frank specifically injected party into the debate- not me- nobody will call him on it. He equated the view as a "Republican" view and the person making the claim as an idiot. Ergo it is Republican and idiotic and a person expressing the "Republican" view is an idiot. So he committed two fouls that you are never shy about attacking me and others for- injecting party AND name calling. He simply linked the two. Why not call him out for both? You sure have no problem jumping on me for dividing things into left/right, Dem/Rep, as do a number of other people on this blog. All this occurs just two months after the lengthy lectures by people on this blog denying a double standard and attacking me and others for decorum. You simply have no defense to the charge of a double standard. Has anyone suggested Dr. Frank be banned? No. Such things are reserved for conservatives only.

"Ergo it is Republican and idiotic and a person expressing the "Republican" view is an idiot." -- CA

If you say so. I think that's a bit parnoid.

Fred Gregory

You are kidding ? Surprise.. Surprise !
