Democrat John Edwards Hits New Low as Human Being

Iraq Veterans Rebuke Edwards' Memorial Day Politicization

New York -
Vets For Freedom

Vets for Freedom, a veterans group dedicated to communicating America's strategy in Iraq, strongly denounced a media campaign led by former Senator John Edwards that uses Memorial Day to promote anti-war protests. Edwards arrogantly declared Memorial Day "exactly the right time" to protest the Iraq War, encouraging anti-war protestors to take to the streets.

VFF Executive Director, and Iraq war veteran, Pete Hegseth calls it "exactly the wrong time."

"It's unfortunate that a viable Democratic presidential candidate would use Memorial Day--the day America remembers her fallen heroes--to promote political statements," said Hegseth, who served in both Baghdad and Samarra, Iraq.
"Americans are understandably divided on the Iraq War, but Memorial Day is a sacred space; a time to lay aside partisan politics and come together. This holiday is about remembering the fallen on the battlefield and passing their collective story to the next generation. These stories, and the men that bear them, are the backbone of this American experiment and must never be forgotten."

Vets for Freedom will close its doors for Memorial Day, joining the rest of America in remembering American GI's who fought--and died--for the cause of freedom.

But Hegseth adds, "After Memorial Day weekend, I look forward to redoubling our efforts to communicate America's strategic objectives in Iraq and Afghanistan."

Vets for Freedom boasts an ever-growing network of veterans who believe in the need to defeat radical Islamist insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan. Led by Al Qaeda, radical Islamists--waging a global insurgency--have declared war on America and now seem poised to declare victory in Iraq.

Vets for Freedom will do everything it can to make sure this does not happen; mobilizing the voices of the vast "silent majority" of veterans who believe in the mission to be heard in Washington, DC and throughout America.

As for John Edwards' Memorial Day ploy, Hegseth submits, "I would be surprised if many people heed Edwards' call for action. The American people are sensible, and recognize a political stunt when they see one."

Wild Thing's comment...................

America has come to a place that is not pretty, and in fact it is a dangerous time for this Nation. We have allowed traitors to bash our country, slander and lie about our troops, protest the service of our military, aid the enemy and be on covers of magazines with high praise from politicians and the media such as Hanoi Jane, John Kerry, Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Murtha and the list goes on and on.

Because there has been no punishment for their treason, their being traitors.... they take it as a go ahead, an OK from our country that what they do is acceptable. Well it is NOT, NO WAY, not even a little is it OK with this red/ white/ and blue American girl!

This slick lying piece of work John Edwards is my enemy and America's enemy. He has made his choice and that is to side with the terrorists. Other politicians join him in this as we all know, more of his ilk spewing their sickness and American hate every chance they get. He uses a day of remembering the Fallen and those that have served our country to make every attempt to lower the morale of our troops, to show he does not back them, he encourages others to do the same thing. What the hell kind of President wanna be, human being can live with themselves and do such a thing???????

I present to you John Edwards, the coward, John Edwards the traitor!

I am not surprised a dummycrap would say that.
He knows he can't win and he's as scared as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
Why do the dummycraps hate America so much that they'd sell her down the river for a few trinkets?

John Edwards the ambulance chasing trial lawyer. The man of zero morals. He represents all that is wrong in America. The Democratic presidential candidates all represent the worst of America. They will destroy what America has been to stoke their egos and increase their power.

Cream may rise to the top, but sadly, shit floats. John Edwards is shit.

Edward's personal Hell is that he's a short-pants sissy, and he knows it (like Clinton)...and he knows that everyone else knows it. After the primaries he'll disappear like a fart in a tornado.

You can't win a Presidential primary with the support of Carolina engenues, debutantes hairdressers, and art students.

This guy is a Clinton shill, they put him out there to make Dame Hillary look good. Nobody is that stupid.

No one could have personified what has gone wrong in this country better than John Edwards with this latest stunt. Definitely two Americas but not the way he believes it to be.

John Edwards, a man of no character.

In other cases, Edwards sued the American Red Cross three times, alleging transmission of AIDS through tainted blood products, resulting in a confidential settlement each time, and defended a North Carolina newspaper against a libel charge.

What if the Red Cross just quit taking donations for blood because of Edwards and those like him; too many risks involved. Any medical procedure involves risks and when you receive blood, you're told of the risks of infection and disease. To sue one of the few organizations who help others expecting nothing in return is low, real low. I bet this scum sucker would go after the Salvation Army too.

Love the analogy Tom, it fits. I view Edwards a a slender version of Rosie O'Donnell, with the same dogged leftist anti-american drivel, the same views of our military and the sanctimonious attitude that he's better than his fellow human being. He is every bit as dangerous to the nation's freedon as a Muzzy zealot.

The qualifications for becoming President of the United States are very minimal;they were written by wise men so that even very simple men might hope to be President someday, if they ate their green beans, saluted the flag and were born in the USA.

Lynn, your right, I think so too. He knows he can't win.

Tom, this is so good!!!!!

Rhod, great way to put it and true too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 29, 2007 01:13 AM

Mark, yessss, I wonder if he just is running to maybe get another shot at being on someones ticket with the Democrats.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 29, 2007 01:15 AM

Yankeemom, I agree, there are two America's and he doesn't have a clue what we mean by it.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 29, 2007 01:16 AM

Bopb, oh my gosh! I never heard about that. OMG how awful. Thank you for the information.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 29, 2007 01:18 AM

Jack I agree he is very dangerous to our country. I don't think he can win, but even without winning he is doing tons of damage to our troops while he is at it. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR
