Skip to comments.John Edwards: My part in his downfall
Posted on 04/05/2010 8:54:20 AM PDT by ventanax5
Late on a spring afternoon last year, my wife, Cheri, and I went to watch our eight-year-old son, Brody, play in the last baseball game of the season. Out on the field was the man who had once promised me the brightest future I could imagine and then abandoned me to national disgrace. He was hiding behind his sunglasses, talking to his son, Jack. Cheri and I sat alone, ignored, as the other parents chatted. Jack and his sister, Emma Claire, who used to play with our kids, looked at us with confusion in their eyes, and we overheard one of the mothers in the crowd whisper something about "the Youngs". When the game ended, my old friend, boss and mentor walked the long way to his car so he could avoid us. It was the last time I would see John Edwards.

yo, imbecil: why don’t you slink away and stay slunk? Your 15 minutes were up a long time ago.
i love this heartwarming story. i only wish there had been videotape
of bill clinton.
So he even used his children to fight his battles?
Because nobody will ignore him.
Lay with dogs wake up with fleas.
I cannot muster any sympathy for Mr Young. He willingly aided and abetted Edwards in all his schemes, and admits as much. Now Young is apparently hurt and surprised that Edwards treated him with the same callous disregard that he showed for his wife and family.
Andy, Andy, Andy please don’t go away mad.
Just go away!
Lay with dogs - wake up with puppies.
I fully expect to see this man’s picture next to the word “enable” in the dictionary.
After reading this ‘excerpt’ not only will I discourage anyone from buying the book, I think I’ll go spend the rest of the day in the shower.
Your kids should know what a loyal swell guy you are. Or else he's going to hear it from all the neighbors. And in the south, forget being chums with John Edwards, I wouldn't expect Brody to have much of a social life period. People down there have long memories and know a rat when they see one.
He’s learning that to Dems and Libs trust is nothing but the condition necessary for betrayal to occur.
The media kept silent on John Edwards story long enough to ensure Hillary was beaten by Obama.
I want this guy to keep telling this story over and over and over...
It is a perfect metaphor for the Democrat Party, and for what is happening right now.
All the Blue Dogs and “moderates” are being used for the so-called greater good.
Just as Edwards used and abused Youngs’ starry-eyed loyalty for his self aggrandizing agenda, Obama, Nancy and Harry are willing to sacrifice everyone elses career to build legislative monuments to themselves.
This whole story is the modern Democrat Party in action, but without the MSM filter.
Andrew Young was engaging in a process to lie to America. So that John Edwards could become the President of America. Both of you were engaging in lies, and if known scandalous behavior. It is right to be stung by disappointment, yet all that time you (Andrew) were also betraying Ameica; which evidently to you was okay.
God is not mocked. He allows us to reap what we sow.
we are to learn from our mistakes.
God help us in our day, in Jesus name, amen.
The Ends justify the Mean.
I really liked this story full of wacky hijinx and slapstick comedy.
All democrats are thieves by nature. There is no honor among thieves.
BTW, Allowing the bastard to make Mr. Young claim the Edward's bastard as Young's bastard kinda makes Young a bastard. BTW, the trollop in the case is also kind of a bastard, too. And so was Mrs. Edwards I. That makes 4 or 5 bastards, when the story began with one bastard.
I guess this is what the Democrats mean by "creating jobs?"
I visited Chapel Hill this weekend and we were lookingat places to eat. I was told that several were near the old Edwards Campaign HQ and closed more than once because of bomb threats to the Edwards HQ.
It moved because it became so unpopular
