Edwards mouth will be his downfall.
That’s why he sends wife out to do the talking.
Mind giving those of us who cannot view the video at work a transcript of what was said? I’d love to join in on bashing the Breck girl =).
Whoops, belay that! I see it’s a FR link and not a video.
Every time Edwards speaks it is an indictment of the juries that have rewarded him enough lawsuit verdicts that he is a multi-millionaire.
Paging Jesse Jackson!
Thanks for the post. That is funny. My gawd, is he the phoniest man on Earth or what? Doing the old two Americas thing again. When is he going to open up that big home of his and let all the disaffected yutes live with him?
The video was called “stopping inner-city violence, and the question was what Edwards would do, as President. From an MTV program.
Yes, the gobsmack quote was at the beginning.
“The idea that we’re just going to keep incarcerating...
pretty soon we’re not going to have a young African-American male population in America — they’re all going to be in prison.. or dead, one of the two.” The young folks were
all nodding in agreement.
Then he started talking about education reform and the pixie dust put me to sleep.
Verbatim, what he said was:
“Pretty soon we’re not going to have a young African American male population in America, they’re all gonna be in prison or dead.”
Nice, eh? lol
Obviously the solution is for the “gummint” to throw tons more money at the problem...
Edwards: "That's a good question...The answer's a little long, so bear with me. Because I don't think there's a silver bullet for this.
We start with the President of the United States saying to America: "We cannot build enough prisons to solve this problem. And... the idea that we're just gonna keep incarcerating, keep incarcerating... pretty soon we're not gonna have a young African American ma- male population in America - they're ALL gonna be in prison or dead, one of the two.
And so, I think there are a lot of things we need to do...."
John Edwards downfall has already happened he’s just too arrogant and egotistical to know it. He’s been stuck on app. 10% forever. The only thing he is doing is helping the Republicans with these little idiotic quotes he makes and then has to send his wife out to “CLARIFY”. He is what a Democrat truly is, he’s just to stupid to keep it hidden all the time.
Will CNN ask if this was an “Imus” moment?
Or more simply put... pay them to leave us alone.
I still think he's trumped by both Gore and Kerry in that department.
Edwards’s comment was utterly insulting and stupid. I would like to hear the GOP candidates pick up on that and attack it as typical of Democrat thought, but I won’t hold my breath.
Well, there's a big difference between the two incidents!
Imus is a "shock jock" -- he's paid to say outrageous things. He's paid to say things that (he hopes) are funny. He was trying to be hip and use current day lingo. And he tripped up. Obviously, his career is over.
Edwards, on the other hand, is a professional lawyer who knows how to weigh his words. He's a candidate for president who thinks that all black males are criminals. He will continue on with his campaign, and this will blow over.
