Our ambulance chaser in chief, John Edwards, got caught being a huge hypocrite yesterday with regards to Walmart.

http://www.timesdaily.com/apps/pbcs....rticle?AID=/20061116/APF/611162631

The "Breck girl" is a sham and a loser, and is prima facie evidence of the disconnect between what a politician says and what they do in their private life.

Hey Edwards, life is NOT contorting yourself like a baby and putting on a show to win a sleazy settlement against obstetricians in North Carolina. By the way, breck girl, how much of those millions you "won" for your clients did you pocket?

He is an absolutely repulsive figure.

He is an absolutely repulsive figure.

His explanation for the "mistake" is laughable.

Quote:
"My wife, Elizabeth, wanted to get a Playstation3 for my young children. She mentioned it in front of one of my staff people. That staff person mentioned it in front of a volunteer who said he would make an effort to get one. He was making an effort to go get one for himself," Edwards said.

"Elizabeth and I knew nothing about this. He feels terrible about this. He made a mistake and he knows he should not have used my name," Edwards said.

Taking the above at face value, I find it laughable that the Edwards' are now saying it was a "mistake." Why would Mrs. Edwards talk about the PS 3 in front of the staff person unless she expected him/her to get one? And the paid staff member who mentioned it to a volunteer wasn't smart enough to 1) tell the volunteer not to use Edwards' name in the attempt, and 2) if he expected to use the name for influence, didn't tell the volunteer NOT to go to Wal Mart.

Sleazy politics as usual.

So some over-achieving staffer overheard that the Edwards' kids wanted a PS3 and took it upon themselves to round up a volunteer to go fetch one?

She didn't "go fetch one", she used the man's name in order to avoid waiting in line like the rest of the people.

Just one more example of the "do as I say, not as I do" hypocrisy of the liberal elitist.

"The retailer issued a written statement Thursday accusing Edwards of not wanting to wait his turn. 'While the rest of America's working families are waiting patiently in line, Sen. Edwards wants to cut to the front,' the Wal-Mart statement said."


haha good one walmart! I'm glad they aren't supporting this "I'm better than everybody else" attitude so many politicians seem to have.


So I guess Edwards does not want to shop at walmart because of the low wages, bad working conditions, etc?

In all honesty, if walmart really is not staff-friendly, or doesn't pay their workers enough, or whatever some people get their panties in a wad over, if it was really true, then nobody would be working at walmart! Obviously the benefits are enough for the people who staff the stores, and just the fact that the workers are working there on their own accord should be proof enough that walmart is a perfectly good store! If the pay isn't good enough, then, well, the workers would quit. Besides, I highly doubt that the greeter or cashier pay check had the origional intention of being able to support a family. Its a good post-retirement job, or a good summer job for kids.

Also, boycotting walmart, it seems to me, will just lower their profits and make them drop a lot of workers in order to stay in buisness, or cut their wages more. So, then they will get blamed for cutting jobs and wages?

Besides, I bet the general public will shop where the prices are the lowest, and not worry about all this politics.

But no need to listen to me - I'm just a 16 year old kid who doesn't know much.

Earlier Thursday, Edwards had said in a statement e-mailed by spokeswoman Kim Rubey: "We instructed no one to contact Wal-Mart on our behalf."


Edwards said the volunteer was "a young kid" unaware of what he called flawed Wal-Mart policies. He called the Wal-Mart statement an effort to divert attention from its own problems.

A few weeks ago a few folks from Senator Jim Talent's camp (Republican - Missouri) kept calling and calling the agency I was working at to get a boatload of tickets for the St. Louis Cardinals Stadium Pep Rally long after they had sold out. Seven different people called about eleven different times and the language and tone they were using....so full of "love they neighbor" values, let me tell you.

Ah, the majestic, compassionate legal mind of A.net returns. I guess that to a seasoned counselor like you insulting John Edwards for his dubious qualities and his comical hypocrisy here is like insulting one's mother. But have no fear, you will always come far out in front on the issue of "hatred" on these boards. After all, it is part of your job, while mine is one of compassion and helping those who are sick. You litigate, I operate. You sue, I cure.

Again, sorry I have to correct your facts. I have been pounding the Republicans mercilessly on hypocrisy with regards to personal behavior. I have called them on it way before these recent elections.

Again, sorry I have to correct your assertions, but I share no love with the religious/evangelical/theocratic wing of the Republican party. I believe they have hijacked the party and the party will continue to lose until they are shunned. I have, unfortunately, once again shown how ridiculous your casual comments about me are.

Thanks for your input and do try again.

Well, yes, that was wrong in my opinion. I am a republican, too. But, you know what? Everybody here makes mistakes. I'm not trying to make excuses for the republicans; like I said, what they did was wrong. (but it seems like the liberals get a lot of excuses.)

Whatever the chain of events, this is a source of embarassment for John Edwards (remind me who he is again?). Political beings who create such situations for themselves have only themselves to blame for not ensuring that their staffers employ common sense.

That having been said, these things happen all the time. Zealous staffers who are trying to get in the good books of their political bosses will often do ridiculous things. And I doubt if Mrs. Edwards, who is an honest gem of a person would resort to such tactics to get this contraption. Certainly, John Edwards who as a top notch attorney has dealt with conflict issues would not have given the green signal for this to proceed, locked as he is in a battle against Walmart. As an attorney, the first issue you address in any case is a conflicts issue. It's ingrained in you, and Edwards as a very successful attorney would have exercised this in almost a Pavlovian manner. Or he certainly should have.

On, now I've heard everything.

You're a regular Florence Nightingale. I'm sure Ms. Nightingale wore her hatred on her sleeve too.

And I'm sure like Ms Nightingale all you get paid for your efforts are the undying love and prayers of your patients. You know, like all those BMW driving, McMansion living Indian American doctors.

Besides, hon, I don't know if some hot and sexy lawyer chick dumped you and left you in a puddle of tears and a perennial hatred of attorneys, but not all of us spend our lives chasing after incompetent doctors (or dump doctors after a hot and heavy romance). My job, for instance, entails litigating against drug companies who resort to antitrust tactics and patent evergreening to keep the prices of their drugs sky high, and chaperoning drug companies through the regulatory and legal red tape of federal agencies like the FDA and the EMA to get their products approved.

So, see, we work with you, rather than against you. Life is far more complex than you make it out to be.

Sorry, again, but all I get for my practice is either no pay (35-40%), OR Medicare (40%). Only a few actually have insurance. So, please refrain from confusing my intellectually and clinically challenging, yet monetarily unrewarded practice with the guys you have a crush on, like Dr. 90210 or the ilk.

Once again, please refrain from using examples of your personal liasons with me. I dislike lawyers because they are either sleazy snake oil salesman like John Edwards, or enablers and apologists for them. Judging by your high praise for Edwards and his wife, I take it you are the latter. I, on the other hand, disavow myself from any unscrupulous, unprofessional activity by any person. I am still waiting on your condemnation of Edwards.

Thank you.

But in this case, chain of events began with former senator's wife talking about how they were looking for a PS3 with a staffer, and the staffer talking about getting a PS3 with the volunteer.

Unless the staffer's job description includes acting as a personal shopper for the former senator and his family, I'd say this person was working outside their scope of employment.

Ah yes. Jay would like us to believe that he spends hours in his office at Heller Ehrman working to keep prescription drug prices low for the average joe.

But what does HE's website say about their FDA practice? http://www.hellerehrman.com/en/practices/pr_fda_main.html

Quote:
Heller Ehrman has one of the largest and most comprehensive life sciences practices in the United States. For more than 40 years, we have played a pivotal role in the growth and development of innovative life sciences companies. We provide strategically focused legal and regulatory advice to pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and food companies on a broad variety of issues arising under the complex laws and regulations administered by the FDA. Our work involves counseling in matters of regulatory compliance and enforcement, as well as representation and advocacy in administrative, judicial, and legislative proceedings. We also work extensively with the private and public financing communities on leading life sciences deals, including representation of major funds investing in the life sciences...

Yet it misses the point completely. The issue isn't people pulling strings to get stuff. The issue is that Edwards is on the record criticize Wal-Mart and demonizing their very existence. Yet it seems that when he needs a string pulled, he's not opposed to buying stuff from them.

Heck if I was POTUS, we'd be renaming the space shuttle NASA 1. The presidential aircraft would be a F117A and we'd go fishing off of a Los Angeles Class Attack Sub (would the be Sub1?)
