Senator Edwards says that Jesus would be disappointed in Americans while speaking of his own hypocrisy – that’s the subject of today’s Talking Points memo.
During his first failed bid for presidency, Demacrat Senator John Edwards, was hailed as a brilliant trial lawyer because he channeled the words of a dead child during a summation on a big case and he won a big award.
So here in the middle of another presidential election cycle, retread candidate Edwards has set his sights even higher: He has appointed himself spokesman for Jesus.
Edwards said that “Jesus would be upset with America’s willingness to go to war when its not necessary.”
He further said: “I think Jesus would be disappointed in our ignoring the plight of those around us who are suffering, and our focus on our own selfish short-term needs. I think he would be applaud.”
Would He be applaud that your giant 28,000 square-foot mansion that is gated? How about your new beach house on an island near Wilington North Carolina that nobody can get to which is 2,800 square feet?
You’ve got 34,000 square feet of living space, you think He would be applaud at your hypocrisy senator?
Let me tell you this senator: Americans are the most giving people in history. Not just during times of calamity, tidal waves, hurricanes or tornados. We give daily. We give to people we have never met, here and across the world.
We feed and educate children in cultures who are taught to hate us. Everyday Americans offer countless acts of kindness to strangers because our nature is giving. Not to mention gifts granted to others from the taxes we pay.
Yet YOU Senator Edwards, patron saint of stiff hair and hair spray and empty heads, use Jesus to mischaractize Americans as selfish war-mongers with no rights to defend our country when attacked.
If anything is applauding Mr. Edwards, it is you and your shameful view of your fellow citizens and your utter hypocrisy.
Talk about selfishness and satisfying your own wants and desires first, you are showing the people the way.
Talk about yourself, but please leave the rest of us out of it.
And that’s the memo.
