You Mean John Edwards is a Democrat?

I'm shocked! I was just looking at the information provided by concerning John Edwards and I have to say that I am floored. You mean to tell me that he actually supports gun control? And he supports a woman's right to choose? How appalling.


Maybe the Republicans are more out of touch than I thought. John Edwards is a Democrat! Of course he supports these things. That's what Democrats do. If he didn't support these things we'd call him a Republican.

I don't understand the logic in this. This type of information only plays to their base. Only the Republicans are going to look at this information and feign to be outraged. Democrats are going to look at it and say "Hey, he stands for the same things I do." I thought the idea was to peel off votes from the other parties. Maybe I was wrong.

Let's take a look at some of the other issues they are knocking Edwards for.

  • Edwards Twice Voted Against President Bush’s Jobs And Growth Reconciliation Tax Act Of 2003, And Twice Against 2001 Bush Tax Cut. (Fine by me, the tax cut doesn't benefit anyone but the rich)
  • In 1999, Edwards Twice Voted Against Implementing $792 Billion Tax Cut. (Maybe because the rich are rich enough)
  • Edwards Opposed And Blocked The Bipartisan Energy Bill. (Ken Lay doesn't need any more money)
  • Edwards Voted Twice Against The 2003 Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit Package. (Maybe because it's not a "benefit")
  • Edwards Says He Is “Opposed To Vouchers, [Has] Always Been Opposed To Vouchers.” (Vouchers will not improve schools, just shift the problems from school to school)
  • In 1999, Edwards Voted Against Banning Partial-Birth Abortion. (Because the law does not allow for medical necessity)
  • Edwards Voted To Allow Federal Money To Be Used To Distribute Morning-After Abortion Pill In America’s Schools. (A woman's right to choose)
  • Edwards Voted To Require Federal Licensure And Registration Of Gun Shows. (Makes sense)
  • Edwards Voted Against Voluntary Background Checks For Gun Purchases. (They should be mandatory)
  • Edwards Supported Background Checks At All Gun Shows. (Good idea, close that loophole)
  • Edwards Said He Would Not Support Defense Of Marriage Act. (That's because it should be called the "Gays can't marry act)
  • Edwards Believes In Right To Privacy When It Comes To State Sodomy Laws. (What two consenting adults do in their bedroom is their business)
  • Edwards Supports Partner Benefits And Gays In The Military. (What? He's not a homophobe?)
  • Edwards Sided With Unions Over Bush. (So he's for unions fighting for worker's rights? How awful!)

    See what I mean? He's a Democrat, that's one of the reasons Kerry chose him. The way I see it, the Republicans are calling a duck a duck. If they really want to dissuade Democratic voters, show how he supports Republicans. I don't think they thought this one through very well.

    Of course the media is still whoring for the man and talking only to the Republicans. As I write this, I'm watching the Today show and I have yet to see them talk to a single Democrat outside the Kerry campaign concerning John Edwards. Makes sense to me. The Republicans obviously know Democrats best.
