John Edwards For President!!

From the Concord Monitor Online...

Edwards plans big for presidency
Candidate: $acrifice must be priority, too...
(Cool! We Americans LOVE sacrifice!)

John Edward$ $ay$ if he's elected pre$ident, he'll in$titute a New Deal-like $uite of program$ to fight poverty and $tem growing wealth di$parity. To do it, he said, he'll a$k many American$ to make $acrifice$, like paying higher taxe$.

Edward$, a former (1 two-year term) Democratic senator from North Carolina, says the federal government $hould underwrite univer$al pre-kindergarten, create matching $aving$ account$ for low-income people, mandate a minimum wage of $9.50 and provide a million new $ection 8 hou$ing voucher$ for the poor. He also pledged to start a government-funded public higher education program called "College for Everyone."

"It i$ central to what I want to do a$ pre$ident to do $omething about economic inequality. I do not believe it i$ okay for the United $tate$ of America to have 37 million people living in poverty," he $aid in a meeting with Monitor reporter$ and editor$ this week. "And I think we need, de$perately need, a pre$ident who will $ay that to America and call on American$ to $how their character."

Hey, Idiot... When are Americans going to demand a president who will call on America's POOR to show their character, and stop making choices and engaging in behavior in their OWN lives that lead to poverty?

Why is anyone still listening to this dolt?

The people of North Carolina were so impressed with how much he accomplished for them in the Senate, that after only two years, they decided that his work was done, and released him from further service as their Senator so that he could pursue bigger and better ambulanc... er... bigger and better things.

"I think if we want to fund the thing$ that I think are important to $hare in pro$perity, then people who have done well in this country, including me, have more of a re$pon$ibility to give back," he $aid. Later, he added: "There are no free meal$."

Oooooh, yes, there ARE!!

Like other Democrat$, Edward$ named hi$ top three prioritie$ a$ ending the war in Iraq, enacting univer$al health care and overhauling the American energy $ystem. "Tho$e are three thing$ in$tantly I would do," he $aid.

INSTANTLY. He would INSTANTLY do those three things.

He would then use the remaining seven years, eleven months, twenty-nine days, twenty-three hours, fifty-nine minutes and fifty-nine seconds of his presidency to give every American, (except you, there...) free pre-kindergarten, a free college education, free Section 8 housing vouchers, a chicken in every pot, and HUGE PECTORAL MUSCLES.

All at taxpayer expense, of course.

No, wait! At the expense of RICH taxpayers. (You know, all those Americans who have spare money lying around that they are not using, and probably wouldn't miss anyway.)

(Like, well, like John Edwards!)

I have a question...

When are these Democrats going to stop dragging their feet, and promise the American People what we REALLY want?

We want a Million Dollars.


It's as realistic as all of the other stuff they are promising...
