You idiot! John Edwards rages at mistress Rielle Hunter for not destroying sex tape
Daily Mail ^ | May 18, 2011 | NA

Posted on 05/18/2011 10:10:09 AM PDT by Parmenio

Furious John Edwards has allegedly vented his anger at mistress Rielle Hunter over the steamy sex video they made during his White House run. In an amazing outburst, the shamed politician reportedly exploded after a judge ruled portions of his testimony under oath would be made public.

An insider said: 'John took his anger and frustrations out on Rielle.

'He screamed at Rielle, calling her an idiot for not destroying the tape, and yelling that she made a fool of him for talking him into making it,' a source told the National Enquirer.

'Rielle was in tears, and tried to apologize, but John didn't care. John was shocked with the judge's decision. 'His worst nightmare is that the tape will get on the internet, and destroy what little reputation he has left.'

National Enquirer via the Daily Mail. Edwards will be asked to testify under oath at a hearing on June 20. This is a separate matter from the grand jury investigation already underway. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

I don’t understand why the left threw him under the bus. When clinton did the same stuff he was defended like nuts. In fact it seemed to boost his standing with them.

Nothing to worry about there, John ol' boy.

Simple - Clinton was in power, Edwards isn't and won't ever be again.

He’s a freaking lawyer. It shows how arrogance and power trump actual relevant experience. He now looks like he has never set foot in any courtroom.

Two reasons:

1. Clinton was a "charming rogue", Edwards was an "a__hole".

2. Clinton was a "winner", Edwards was a "loser".

That is an interesting question, isn't it?

Perhaps it was because Clinton was in office; he had the power. Remember "those are are planes now" ?

If Edwards had gotten the Presidency, they might well close ranks around him, destroy Rielle, come up with more studies about how African Bonobos build stable social groups even with rampant infidelity, we should be more like Bonobos, etc., etc.

Unfortunately, he didn't catch the brass ring, so he road kill. Too bad John.

How do you throw a person under a bus? Is the bus moving at the time the person is thrown under it? What type of bus is it? A school bus? A Greyhound bus? A city transit bus? Please explain.

They went after him because he was a threat to their man Obama.

Obama is the complete package they wanted, Edwards was not going to implement the socialist takeover of their dreams (or not as fast as obambi)

Wasn’t there a Freeper here who said he met Obama years before and Obama told him he was going to be president next? (freeper Race Bannon?)

Oh, I think some of us have. Recently, a teacher tried to talk me into getting my son involved in student government. She said, “He knows so much about American history, a great orator and could have a future in politics”. Before my brain could stop my tongue, I said, “I’d be prouder of him if he was a piano player in a whorehouse”. Oops.

Funny how State bootlicks like Chris Matthews are forever questioning the intelligence of conservative like Palin, but I don't seem to remember any criticism of the intelligence of a lib like Edwards.

2007: Rolling Stoned gushes over "The Real Liberal"

If he weren't rich, handsome and so well married, you might feel a little sorry for John Edwards. Never before in the 231-year history of our republic have the inalienable traits that Edwards possesses -- his fair skin and a Y chromosome -- been anything but a prerequisite for presidential politics. Today, his race and gender stand a chance of derailing his campaign altogether. "There's a lot of Democrats who would like to make history," says Markos Moulitsas, founder of the influential online forum Daily Kos. "The party is anxious to nominate a black or a woman," agrees Dick Morris, the former adviser to Bill Clinton. "You have to sign off on either of those two options before you even get to voting for Edwards."

Rolling Stone then established the bonafides of John Edwards as the "Real Liberal."

...Flying below the radar, the former vice-presidential candidate is pulling off a feat that Democratic consultants have long considered impossible: staking out the most progressive platform among the viable candidates while preserving an aura of electability... Newsbusters

“”she made a fool of him for talking him into making it”

This is the money shot. It’s the whole reason for this “unscripted” outburst. He’s doing the best he can to salvage an abysmal situation: making her look like an idiot serves that purpose. Of course, he hasn’t thought 2 steps ahead. If she’s such a bozo, what does that say about HIM who willingly risked his entire marriage/career just for a roll in the hay with her?

I think that the reason Edwards was destroyed by the affair is that his wife Elizabeth was dying at the time. This is something that would (and did) totally infuriate the women he wanted to have voting for him— he politically destroyed himself, due to Elizabeth’s illness.

Otherwise, the left would probably just have laughed off the affair.

They wanted Obambi in . . . not John Edwards . . . Edwards had no principles and stood for nothing . . . kinda' like Clinton. Obambi stood for total destruction of our Constitution, the economy, and anything good about our country.

Edwards, Romney, Huckabee, Boehner . . . they all remind me of males versions of Stepford Wives, you know, from Central Casting. Worthless, mindless, kinda' decent looking.

But Obambi is "black," radical, communistic, totally unpatriotic, and anti-American.

He thought that Elizabeth’s passing would garner sympathy for him during his grieving. Instead, he indulged in this affair, produced a baby out of wedlock while his wife was still alive, and now nobody has any sympathy for him.

Except me.

Poor John Edwards.

While this may be a ‘truish’ statement, I reached that conclusion about the time LBJ went into the P and had harbored some doubts till that point.

I got a harsh awakening about listening to ‘Adults and Glorious Leaders’ back in 1956 when I went through ABC Warfare training in boot camp...

The images of ‘us younguns’ being placed under desks = by our Govt Officials and at the urging of the Nuns = in the event of a nuclear attack, forever made my ‘suspicious’ of elderly ‘advice’.

I was wondering too. The article has this little gem:

The insider said: 'Rielle thought they would be married by now or at least finalising wedding plans. At this point, she's completely baffled about their relationship.'

Edwards is finished. He has no chance for a come back.

LOL! There's an understatement!
Except for one thing - - this kind of thing, if it doesn't actually serve as a resume enhancement, at least carries little weight with Democrat voters. For Democrat voters, honesty, integrity, and character, etc., are totally irrelevant. For them, it's all about getting the "free stuff" their politicians confiscate from Republican taxpayers and hand over to them, the Democrat voters, in exchange for their votes. Everything else is secondary.
