Elizabeth Edwards Meet-Up In Macon

JohnEdwards.com

If I swore-off Target for just a week or two, I could possibly afford the opening price point ($200) for one of those intimate fundraiser gatherings with Elizabeth Edwards — this time in Macon, June 5th at 5:30pm. But maybe you have better control over your spending and would like to go? For more information, contact amymorton at aol dot com.

And then there’s the car repair bill from heck…

    RuralDem,

    John Edwards is pathetic. And he’s a socialist. I guess he’s the perfect candidate for you. 🙂

  2. RuralDem says:

    dingleberry,

    I knew you would come around.

    Erick or someone else, please tell me where the “online” list or the “friends” list is located. dingleberry obviously has me on there!

    There are some choices here:

    Mr. Hillary Clinton, Bill, will soon be in Georgia for a tea with the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Confederate flags optional. Date pending.

    Mrs. Barack Obama, Elizabeth, will be in Atlanta June 6th. 1k VIP, $250 luncheon. Location TBD.

    Mrs. Breck Girl John Edwards, Elizabeth, Macon, $200.

    If you’re a cheap Democrat and need a new “do”, Macon’s for you.

    If you’re a red neck Georgia Moderate, then Mr. Hillary’s your man.

    If you’re worthy of VIP treatment, then it’s Mrs. Obama.

    RuralDem,

    Hahah very funny, a liberal socialist with a sense of humor.

    So, why do you support a class-warfare inciting socialist like Edwards?

  5. buzzbrockway says:

    Thanks for posting this SpaceyG. Wouldn’t it be cool if Peach Pundit committed some citizen journalism at these Presidential candidate visits?

  6. RuralDem says:

    bowersville are you and gatormathis related? Both of you tend to ramble quite well and literally confuse the mess out of me at times.

    Oh another note:

    The turnout at the event in April with Senator Edwards was great. His wife has a huge following as well so this event should be a success.

  7. bowersville says:

    R/D I admit, I enjoy Gator, but we’re not related that I know of. And I take your reference as a compliment, I hope any one else reading my comment above, reads it as it was intended, humor.

    I

  8. bowersville says:

    To finish my sentence, Spacey, I wish you were going (hint P/P) so you could run the photo footage and live blog the event.

  9. Skeptical says:

    I’m with you Spacey, every time I walk out of Target it’s at least $150.

    I wonder why they’ve (any national candidate) has decided to pay attention to GA this go around. We didn’t merit anything last time or are we still just their cash cow?

    I would like to go because I am supporting Edwards in the primary – but my little one has become accustomed to diapers and likes his formula, so alas I will read about it the next day.

  10. Holly says:

    Aw, yay for babies. How old?

    You guys are getting out of Target cheap! Teach me. . . I need a 12-step program.

  11. Jace Walden says:

    Of all the democratic presidential candidates, I want John Edwards to lose the most. That’s saying a lot considering I don’t want ANY of them to win.

    John Edwards is the Democratic version of Mitt Romney. He’s an absolute phony.

    Additionally, someone made a good point about class warfare. Why would any reasonable person support a man who so blatantly engages in class warfare?

    There is no “Two Americas”. There is one America, and John Edwards needs to come back to it.

  12. Doug Deal says:

    Jace,

    It is also rather ironic for Edwards to campaign with the “Two Americas” theme, considering he has become rich by being an active and agressive part of the industry that has priced most of the “second” America out of health care.

    Too bad you can’t sue a politician for malpractice, or product liability.

  13. Skeptical says:

    He’s still better than anything your side has got going…

    In the words of the immortal Nelson: Ha-Ha!

  14. Jace Walden says:

    Skeptical,

    What “side” do you think I’m on?

    Oh, and what a very well thought out response. I have to assume that since you chose not to rebut a single word we offered, that you agree with our assessment of Edwards as a class warfare engaging hypocrite and you choose to support him anyway.

    Hey, if that’s what you look for in a candidate, more power to you.

  15. Skeptical says:

    I find it amusing that you think Senator Edwards is a class warfare engaging hypocrite as that is all I’ve ever known any Republican to be.

    If you don’t firmly accept that there are Two Americas today, one where the wealthy enjoy obscene tax breaks and live incredibly well and another where people take out 2nd and 3rd mortgages on their homes to pay medical bills or send their kids to college then you are a blind fool.

    The gap in these Two Americas grows wider every day and the only thing that is more pathetic than your sad attempt to disparage his good name is your willful ignorance in admitting to the problem in the first place.

    And just for you Doug, am I the only one who seems to notice that the US is saddled with record deficits whenever a Republican administration leaves office? Silly me, I guess I’m with the poor half of the Two Americas that is still waiting to Trickle Down to actually trickle down.

    And what I look for in a candidate is someone who can clean up the complete clusterfuck that every stinkin’ pathetic excuse for a human being Republican to hold office in the last 12 years (yes, even before your precious Bushie, the GOP controlled both houses of Congress and really ran this country into the ground) contributed to. Oh, and one who doesn’t claim to be Mr. Moral on his 3rd wife…

  16. Skeptical says:

    Okay, I’ll just try again:

    Skep,

    When you are clouded with hatred, you will treat even the most charitable acts with suspicion and vile.

    You have no credibility because you only care about the label next to their name.

    Personally, I think George W. Bush is one of the most incompetent men to hold public office. I didn’t like him from the moment he was coronated by short sighted Republicans early in the race for 2000. However, you hate filled liberals have left me defending him over the last several years.

    I do not have allegiance to the Republican party as much as I am clinging to the only thing that can stop people like you from hoaving reigns of power in this country. People like you scare voters away, and it is one of the beauties of freedom of speech. All the more rope for you and your fellow fountains of hate to reveal your true character.

    Unlike you, I have seen nearly all sides of the “class divide”. I grew up with a father who did not pay child support, and a mother who made minimum wage working as a clerk in a clothing store.

    Unlike you, I have fought for everything I own, with little or no support from my family or station in life. The government has done nothing but hamper me along the way.

    I have tasted the rotten fruit of this multi Millionaire’s proposed social programs, and it breeds nothing but failure.

    I am waiting for Edwards and Mitt to battle it out over the newly vacated Bob Barker position on the “Price Is Right”

  19. Skeptical says:

    Doug,

    I will admit that I am clouded by hatred – hatred over what has become of this once great country. I am clouded by hatred of the people who have lied us into a war that has claimed the lives of 100 Georgians (to keep this blog local) or over 3,400 fine American men and women. I am clouded by hatred over this unnecessary loss of human life. Think of the potential that has been wasted.

    And I am clouded by hatred towards people who would “cling to the only thing (the Republican Party) that can stop people like me”. That bloated old corpse of a once honorable party can’t stop people who care deeply about this country and want to see it returned to its full glory. That bloated old corpse doesn’t care about We The People anymore and you and I and everyone else reading this knows it.

    I, however, am not clouded by hatred over people who put aside the label by their name in order to stand up and do the job they were sent to do and live up to the oath they swear to – to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. I applaud these people and wish on a daily basis that there were far more of them than those who seem to enjoy sucking this country dry of all that once made it so grand.

    The rotten fruit of this multi-millionaire will take years to clear and I blame the work of those who must clear it squarely on you. You – the Enabler. You – the Defender. You and all of the rest of you reading this who do the same on a daily basis.

  20. Jace Walden says:

    Skeptical,

    There is no “two Americas”. That is just a cheap political ploy.

    I never said Republicans weren’t guilty of class warfare and rhetoric. I would go as far to say that the GOP is worse than the Democratic Party on many issues…just like the Democratic Party is worse than the GOP on this issue.

    I also agree with Doug that George W. Bush is extremely incompetent. No one is defending him or the GOP…But, I’m not going to sit here and attack the GOP, like I do all the time, and let the Democrats slide when they are being grossley incompetent: See John Edwards.

  21. Doug Deal says:

    Jace,

    It is frustrating when people think the failures of one side is a victory for their own cause.

    Democrats who think they are better off for the sole reason that Republicans have dropped the ball need to come up with some solutions of their own.

  22. Holly says:

    Skeptical,

    We’re all aware I’m a Republican, but I tend to get along with you well via comments on PP, so I wanted to comment on something that disturbed me.

    The part about the hate caught my attention. You have told me that you’ve been blessed with a marvelous little bundle of joy who should be filling you with love, making no room for hate.

    You can certainly dislike actions. You should certainly decry what you think is wrong and fight for ways to change it. But when you let actual hate enter the picture, it’s never, never a pretty outcome, and it’s you as the individual who has to come to terms with those negative feelings. I encourage you not to get too down in those sort of feelings or they will overwhelm you.

    Holly

  23. Skeptical says:

    Holly,

    I truly appreciate you taking the time to say that. I used the term “hate” or rather the phrase “clouded by hatred” because that is what I was accused of being. I wanted to emphasis a point.

    I don’t care enough about the national Republican Party to actually hate it. Sorry, but I just don’t. They don’t merit such a strong reaction. I certainly hate the war. I do care enough about that and it’s consequences to muster those kinds of deep emotions.

    I understand that all politics ebb and flow and what is accepted now will someday be looked upon as a “what the hell were they thinking” episode.

    And it is only because of my little one that I have learned to let go of the animosity of it all. Especially here. I find most of the posters here to be pretty reasonable people. People I would raise a glass with (as I have said I would but I just wasn’t coming to y’alls convention – although I would have loved to have been there for the sheer entertainment factor of it all in that whole “seeing how the other half lives” kind of way). But then there are some that just make me wonder. We may have similar backgrounds, similar educations, etc. and still have such a profoundly different outlook on everything.

    But that’s all I do – wonder. Then once I head home for the evening and pick up that beautiful little boy, every little skirmish of the day is forgotten.

    🙂

  24. Holly says:

    You know, I’m not sure our outlook is really all that different when you look at the big picture. I mean, honestly, who lives, breathes, and eats this political stuff all the time? 🙂
