Elizabeth Edwards: scared of "rabid, rabid Republican" neighbor

MIKE BAKER Associated Press

RALEIGH, N.C. - Elizabeth Edwards says she is scared of the "rabid, rabid Republican" who owns property across the street from her Orange County home - and she doesn't want her kids going near the gun-toting neighbor.

Edwards, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, particularly recalls the time neighbor Monty Johnson brought out a gun while chasing workers investigating a right of way off his property. The Edwards family has yet to meet Johnson in person.

"I wouldn't be nice to him anyway," Edwards said in an interview. "I don't want my kids anywhere near some guy who when he doesn't like somebody, the first thing he does is pull a gun out. It scares the business out of me."

Is she vowing to stay away from Webb and the rest of the democrats that also carry guns, or is it really neighbors that she's afraid of...or republicans?

The guy posted a “Go Rudy Giuliani” sign on his fence, so I guess he’s really a RINO. </s>

He's not a Republican, he put up a Rudy sign.

Johnson, who has posted a "Go Rudy Giuliani 2008" sign on a fence just 100 feet from the entrance to the Edwards' driveway, has criticized Edwards for the scale of their nearby home. The property and home, which includes an indoor basketball court, an indoor handball court and an indoor pool, is valued at $5.3 million.

The Edwardses are still putting the final touches on the property, which they purchased in 2003.

"I thought he was supposed to be for the poor people," Johnson said. "But does he ever socialize with any poor people? He doesn't speak to me."

This guy is my new hero.

Is this the two Americas Edwards talk of? Poor Republicans taxed into the poor house by limousine liberals so they can spend the money of entitlements that ensure a voting majority that enables them to stay wealthy and in power.

More likely those ‘investigating’ guys were looking to clear cut even MORE land around the ‘neighborhood’—don’t blame the neighbors for getting a bit upset myself!

That is how it should be: Liberals made to live in constant fear and anxiety.

Living well is, in fact, pretty good revenge. Also good is making scum fearful and miserable.

The gave enough information to identify the guy specifically. Colloquium? Check. She called him “rabid.” Capable of defamatory meaning? Check. Miss Edwards seems like an otherwise decent and interesting person, but she wronged someone here, and it wouldn’t be unjust for her to get sued.

"...gun-toting neighbor."

This phrase cracks me up.

Whenever I hear or read, "gun-toting", I always get an image of some young dandy prancing about with his nickel plated Colt Python .357 magnum slung over his shoulder in a mauve gun cozy, properly accessorized with a few buckles and sequins.

Rabid? (we are moving into new territory here)

What’s the difference between a rabid Republican and a rabid Democrat?

She has also made claims about the irresponsible use of a firearm. I wonder where she is getting this information from?

Of course she only is “afraid” of republicans, the rest of the loons agree with her and it’s OK for them to own guns. It’s the good for me but not thee thing.

Nope. For the Rats, poor people are good only for their votes.

It seems to me that by definition, it is impossible to be both “rabid” and “Republican.” Rabid moonbat? Certainly.

“when he dosen’t like somebody the first thing he does is pull a gun out.”

A. How does she know he didn’t “like” the people in question?

B. How does she know it was the first thing he did.

C. Maybe the trespassers were working for the Edwards.

D. Like it or not Mrs. slandering lawyer this man has a right to own a firearm & protect his property.

E. Do you really have cancer? After reading this article I’m starting to have my doubts.

F. Are you a rabid anti-gun limousine liberal?

Assuming that he has a good name in the community to begin with, her statement implying that he is the type who would shoot first and ask questions later would certainly be injurious to his standing in the community. I’d say he has the elements of a case.

If someone is trespassing, having the gun handy when you confront them is what we country folk call smart. Of course the Edwards’ favorite course of action is to sue you.

Sounds like they need to speed up construction on that little house they’re building. Doesn’t look like there will be any neighbors close enough to worry about. Otherwise they can just move. It’s not like they can’t afford it.

why mention the “gun toting” except as to create peril.

This is not reporting this is play writing. Who is the author who said if a gun is mentioned in a play it means the gun must be used later.

This is BS to set up an expectation of violence whre there is none.

Why not just call the neigbor “thought criminal double plus ungood.”

The media is incompetent.

Why does this remind me of Cindy Shehag camping out next to GWB’s property in Texas? I guess what goes around, comes around!

I see he wants to sell his property. Sounds like a great place for a gun range or a used trailer lot! No! Wait! A Gay Bar would be fitting, & Mrs. Edwards could then rest easy about the safety of her kids.

The Edwards clan are scared of many things. The Breck Girl is scared of Fox News and now the old lady is scared of a neighbor who’s Republican and owns a gun.

Thank goodness this clan will never live in the White House.
