(I’m guest blogging for Sister Toldjah through today. If you’d like to see more of my work, visit Liberty Pundit.)
I’m going to write some words here that I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d write, but here we go: John Edwards is right.
About what, you may ask. Policy? No. Taxes? No. Healthcare? Don’t be silly.
No, what he’s right about is Hillary Clinton. Here’s the money quote(s):
“This morning we all read in L.A. Times that many Clinton campaign contributions are raising eyebrows again. Many of their donors are not even registered to vote, and at least one denied even making any contribution at all,” Edwards Campaign Manager David Bonior said in a statement on Friday.
“Senator Clinton has said public financing is the answer. Senator Edwards has opted to take public financing, but Senator Clinton has not. Senator Clinton should explain why she doesn’t mean what she says…The bottom line is we need a nominee who can do two things: campaign in all 50 states and challenge our broken system in Washington. With every day the growing question has to be can Hillary Clinton do either?”
“There was a story in today’s New York Times about this issue and about her vote on this issue. And some of her advisers said that she voted yes because she was moving from primary mode to general election mode. I may be wrong, and you’ll have to tell me, have we already decided who’s going to win the New Hampshire primary,” said Edwards during a town hall meeting in Dover last week.
Seeking further distinction he added, “instead of primary mode versus general election mode, instead of saying one thing in the primary and something different for the general election, how about if we do tell the truth mode all the time. How about if we say exactly what we believe and stand by that position.”
The Clintons have shown, time and time again, that they will do and say just about anything to get elected. That includes campaign finance fraud. Norman Hsu, I’m confident, is just the tip of the iceberg for the Clintons, and if the media does their job, they would find a lot more, I’m sure.
So props to Mr. Edwards for saying that, even if he really doesn’t believe it…and let’s face it, he’s the last person to be talking about being in “truth mode” all the time.
