Democrat received honor about 8 months before alleged love child born

Where was John Edwards around the time his alleged "love child" Frances Quinn Hunter was conceived?

The senator was in New York – receiving his Father of the Year Award.

Edwards accepted his June 27, 2007, honor from the Father's Day/Mother's Day Council exactly eight months before the child was born Feb. 27, 2008, according to a birth certificate obtained by the Charlotte Observer.

Before beginning his Father of the Year acceptance speech, Edwards told an adoring crowd, "I hate to admit it, but I am not the best parent in my family. ..."

People, people, there is no way the child can be Silky Pony’s baby. It is physically impossible.

The Prell-Man is a liberal, so his little soldiers don’t want to march, if he has any little soldiers.

I can’t believe how he qualified everything in admitting the affair.

1. he admits the affair, but says the baby isn’t his.

2. he admits the affair, but says he doesn’t love the girl, implying it’s a meaningless little fling.

3. he admits the affair, but said his wife’s cancer was in remission at the time. So, we should give him high fives because he didn’t leave his sick wife’s bed to go to someone else’s bed? That’s the implication anyway.

Which, if true, begs the question who fathered Elizabeth's children?

Regardless of whether the child is Edwards’, the whole affair is sordid particularly with his hypocrisy during the 2004 campaign when he said he was sticking by his wife through her cancer. I hope Ms. Edwards finds a nasty divorce lawyer and cleans out the Breck Girl ...she deserves that and more.

It's on YouTube, so you can download it by using a site like keepvid.

Then you can doctor it all you want.

He’s a ambulance chaser. He knows all about the plausible deniability. He doesn’t have to legally accept paternity of the child, because his name isn’t on the birth certificate.
It was most likely kept off with the promise of those 15K checks rolling into the mother each month which has bought her silence. Thus keeping the damage down to a minimum.

I really thing Ms. Edwards has too much class to leave. No one knows how long Elizabeth has, so it is best to keep her family together for the sake of the kids so they are close to their father. I hope Mr. Edwards can change and become a great father for the children as he may be all they have in a few years.

Depending on your browser, you can download youtube and other videos to RealPlayer. I've noticed Internet Explorer-7 allows you to, but FireFox-3, at least at this time, does not. I don't know about their other various versions.

John Edwards awarded 'Father of the Year'

For sharing his seed?
Well, at least he endured (guffaw!) the hot and sweaty part of
making a personal delivery to the recipient...
rather than an impersonal donation to the local sperm bank!
Some sacrifices must be made!!!

(/sarc)

OK, maybe The Silky Pony isn't the father.
But this is just too rich to leave alone.

This could be a key to the case. Legally, he’s not the father since his name isn’t on the birth certificate. So maybe when he said he’s not the father, he took a page out of Bill Clinton’s parsing of language playbook. Legally speaking, apparently nobody is the father of the baby.

But, unless she’s the second coming of the Virgin Mary, somebody contributed sperm to get the ball rolling.

I don’t know what the big deal is. After all the Democrat mantra is vote and vote many times. So Edwards just is doing his manly duty in propagating the species and obeying the basic tenet of Democratic participation in a required ritual. (sarcasm to the max)

Is it still considered a “love child” if he didn’t love the mother?

Yes, since the conception of the child was the result of Edwards' 'love' for screwing around on his wife.

No. He was simply depositing refuse into a convenient receptacle.

And this after MSM worked so hard to cover up for him.

Not much of a father who causes this much pain and humiliation for his children. I feel sorry for the family.

If she wanted to set a good example for her children, and especially her daughters; she would toss him out of the house and divorce him. Teaching girls that this is tolerable behavior does then a disservice.
