The Lies Of (And To) Elizabeth Edwards

This cannot be posted because it's from the Huffington Post, but it definitely doesn't spare either Edwards.

Edwards mistress is a lot hotter than Elizabeth Edwards. Liz Edwards was out of shape long before she became terminally ill so that’s no excuse. Look at Magic Johnson, he still takes care of himself.

Even Huffpo is trashing Edwards now. I guess they have Obama, so they don’t need any other saviors. The only thing Edwards can do now is simply disappear.

Stage 4 breast cancer is not something to lie about and she did so, boldly.

WHAT? Are you saying that John Edwards has a right to cheat on his wife because she wasn’t “HOT?” Wow...

"Elizabeth Edwards also aided and abetted her husband in deceiving Democratic voters on an unprecedented scale."

They're both losers, thinking only of themselves. Too bad for their children, they are the ones who suffer.

Have you seen Magic Johnson lately? He's got to be going well over 300-lbs by now (remember he's 6'8"). He's making Charles Barkley look svelte.

I love the posters there who thought that John Edwards was the “leading voice against poverty in America.”

Nobody in poverty needs the voice of John Edwards to tell them that they’re poor. Nor do they need him to know the reason why: alcohol, drugs, education, bad decision making skills usually resulting in a pregnancy.

Apparently, Elizabeth Edwards isn’t as sick as we were promised.

It’s a pretty fair-minded piece. I’ve never had any doubt that EE, despite her seemingly modest public persona, was the brains of the outfit.

You would not say that if you had known anyone who has had to take a simple drug called prednisone. It will cause a person to balloon up so badly that people do not recognize them. I have had 2 family members who have had to take that and it happened to them. I feel sorry for you if you only value someone due to their looks. Thankfully, I learned at a very young age to take people at what they are instead of how they look. Both of my family members are gone now, one due to Chrohn’s Disease and the other to liver cancer.

Edwards took an oath to be faithful to his wife. It meant no more to him than any other oath the lying piece of trash has taken. His wife has nothing to do with the downing of his zipper, it’s his character and his choice

On display is the amazing ability of lefties to delude themselves into thinking that characters like Edwards and his wife are somehow honest, sincere and interested in the welfare of others when most normal people spot them as the lying, phony assholes they really are.

Whatever treatment she had to have to get pregnant at age 48 and 50 couldn’t have helped her health any. It almost killed Nancy Grace too.

It’s back to normal, but she still gets mad when I bring that up.

That would be the day the Edwards’ tried to restart his failing presidential campaign. That would have been March 23, 2007. More than 2 years ago.

He said she was out of shape BEFORE getting sick. It's not the prednisone that caused him to stray.

And yeah, prednisone will make people look like they are inflated to 30 PSI. I had a cut, tiny little niece who was on it for cancer, she looked way huge after just a couple weeks onit. Poor kid.

"They're both losers, thinking only of themselves. Too bad for their children, they are the ones who suffer.

That pretty much nails it. There certainly are no good guys in this story. I don't read HuffPo, but this writer didn't make anyone out to be the victim, except for the children perhaps, and that's how it should be.

When there are such large personalities and egos at work, as in the case of John and Elizabeth Edwards, civility and discretion for the sake of the children always seem to be the first casualty in these far too public affairs of the heart.

Edward's mistress is not hot at all. Therefore Elizabeth Edwards is hotter than her.

I was diagnosed with a medium case of Sarcoidosis 3 years ago. The treatment is Predasone. I gained a lot of weight because of it. Luckily it sent my Sarcoidosis into remission. This was a stupid comment about the Edwards. He cheated on her because he is a dirt bag. Plain and simple. But to be fair, like Hillary she is an enabler. She wanted power and she let him do the things he did to get it. So she is not innocent by any means.

You mean like on a political discussion board that's read by tens or hundreds of thousands of people? I'd keep her away from the computer for a few days.

I'm not saying Edwards' mistress is Carrie Prejean. But relative to Liz Edwards...

vs

I don't think it's realistic to think a man of such low moral fiber and questionable character as John Edwards could resist upgrading now and again.

I agree, Edwards is even more shallow. Regardless of the hot factor, if Mrs. Edwards withheld knowledge of his adultery at the time of his campaigning, then she is also a blame factor. If you think about it, had his affair been outed when it was known, he wouldn’t have done so well in IOWA - impact? Hillary would likely be President now instead of the pResident we have now.

You're right. The article says nothing about the children, either the children Edwards had with his wife of the one that may allegedly be his with Hunter. So much for the Dems always worrying "about the children".

The comments from the piece at HuffPo are just so incredibly bizarre that they can't be believed. Edwards was right about one thing, there are two America's. One America respects the sanctity of marriage and the importance of a nuclear family to the health and well being of children, and the other America is just a bunch hedonistic deadbeats.

The one thing I hated about the silky pony was that he pushed Elizabeth out to attack Republicans, like Ann Coulter, because you can't be mean back to a sick lady (cough). And Elizabeth did it!!

I hated that and the fact he was a scum-sucking trial lawyer who used dead children's "voices" to win his cases. So that's two things I hated about him...the Elizabeth thing, the dead children's "voices" and the fact that he suddenly discovered poverty when he ran for president.

So, that's three things.

My hubby who died in 2006 from liver cancer had taken the prednisone in the 70’s for Hodgkin's Disease. Prednisone was such a new drug that we had to sign consent forms for him to take it. He only took it for about 3 months and he was cured but he gained about 100 lbs which was very hard to lose. Then in April, 2006, he had lost about 60 lbs and his dumb-o dr here who was an oncologist said it had nothing to do with cancer. My daughter and I finally took him to B’ham and they did a simple ct-scan and found a tumor 5x5x5 on his liver. They gave him 6 months but he died on 8 July 2006. Our younger daughter was told she had Crohn’s Disease when she was about 18-20 and the drug of choice was prednisone which caused her to gain a whole lot of weight. She had so many complications from the Crohn’s that she died on 15 Jan 2004. I still miss them with all of my heart and would take them back, severe weight gain and all!

When I was 2 my nephew was born. His right leg was crooked from the knee down. It was turned toward the back. He had to have it amputated when he was just a toddler but that never stopped him from doing what he wanted to do. He would go to the swimming pool, take his leg off, jump in and have fun just like all of the other kids. We never treated him any differently than the others and if he did something wrong, he got punished by my parents who helped raise him while his parents worked. My favorite story about him is when he was in high school. The school had a new principal and one day one of my nephew's friends came running up to him and said that my nephew had broken off his foot! The guy was scared to death because he did not have a clue as to what was going on. Another favorite story was when he was very young and was in a Memphis hospital. Roy Rogers, Dale Evans and their group came to see the kids one day. One of the guys with them asked my nephew who his favorite cowboy was expecting him to say Roy, of course. His reply kind of stunned them when he said Hopalong! They did give him and the others a replica of Trigger which he kept until he was married and had kids. He brought it over to my parents’ for safe keeping and my mom did not know what happened to it after that.

Most people know when someone is on prednisone for the shape of the head even if the weight gain does not. I am just so greatful that we had them as long as we did but that does not stop the tears from flowing even after all these years.

Almost from the beginning, I thought EE was every bit as bad as her husband. Yes, to be sure, we all feel bad about her personal health problems and we truly wish her full recovery from those, but, on the political stage, she was every bit the liar he was, and, maybe even the brains behind some of those lies. Even now, in calling the Reille woman, ‘pathetic,’ she again shows her refusal to acknowledge the truth. If anyone here is pathetic, it is John Edwards. And coming in a close second is Elizabeth Edwards, herself.

after their 16 yr old son died, she shot her 49 yr old body full of hormones to carry an implanted embryo (his sperm no doubt) to give him another son

when she had a girl, she did it again at age 50 and finally gave him another son. Apparently “someone” was too narcissistic to adopt

I would suspect this screwed up her metabolism pretty badly and may even have led to her cancer

She used be a quite beautiful woman, then life hit her from all directions. It’s a terrible fate that led her to where her path will end, hooked up to this historical lying cheating loser who will end up raising those darling kids
