John Edwards Thinks You Are Stupid

From his speech in Newton, Iowa today.

"We will stop juvenile diabetes, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and other debilitating diseases. ... People like Chris Reeve will get out of their wheelchairs and walk again."

And if they are elected we all get a new pony.

As an insulin-dependent dia... (Below threshold)
X:

As an insulin-dependent diabetic who wears an insulin pump 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and who is already suffering some complications, and faces a future filled with such delightful thoughts as impotence, amputation, blindness, and eventual death, I hope and pray every night for a cure.

But I don't, I can't, trust John Edwards and John Kerry. There is plenty of research into stem cells going on -- Bush is only imposing limitations on federal funding of certain types of research.

And I'll be goddamned if I'll let myself be used as a political prop by anyone. Go to hell, you damned ambulance-chasing louse -- it's you and people like you that makes my insurance rates so damned high and my doctor so paranoid.

X.

My granmother had Alzheimer's and there's a good chance it is hereditary and I'll get it later in life. I'm hopeful there will be a cure because it is a horrible disease and I wouldn't want to criple my future children with caring for me, but for Edwards to assume that Stem Cell research will find a cure for Alzheimer's is insane.

Scientific discoveries sometimes just happen. Often they are found while trying to discover other cures or methods. To assume that cures for all four of the diseases Edwards mentions in four years in office is what many call a "bait and swtich."

You can chalk this up with the Draft talk as another either outright lie or complete misleading of American voters by the Democrats this election cycle. And Paul, I'm going to hold you to that pony offer.

shark:

My grandpa suffered from Alzheimers. And I fricking resent this cheap huckster and the deeply offensive and reprehensible comments he made.

What is Kerry going to do, lay healing hands on everyone? There is NOTHING a Kerry presidency can do that isn't already being done. Fetal stem cells have never cured anyone, and the main chance is adult stem cells.

But even if fetal cells had potential, any benefits would be so far down the road that a Kerry administration would be a distant memory.

What the fuk is Kerry going to do if he's elected (god forbid) and all those sick and infirm people aren't healed by the time his term is up? Is this man and his little boy running mate going to go to hospitals and nursing homes and personally apologize to those heartbroken sufferers whos hopes he raised and destroyed?

Kerry, if you can't get my aunt out of her wheelchair like you promised, what will you say to her? Will you even be around to deal with it? No, of course you won't.

OneDrummer:

The fact that they are invoking a movie star's death, and using it for their political spin shows how absolutely out of touch these lawyers are. Do they honestly think that they're spin will be believed by normal folk who don't worship celebrity? I'd like Edwards to explain how many cures embryonic stem cells have been found so far......

mshyde:

Maybe a note should be handed to John Edwards stating that if in four years he has not followed through on all of the above stated promises, there will be one hell of a class action suit filed against him. Making it clear that every thing he owns or will ever own will be taken from him.
Such blatant false promises show just how amoral and shameless he is.

Dan Patterson:

The two goobers COULD get elected if John Edwards would promise to make every man's Johnson three inches larger. I can see it now, with that earnest, little-boy seriousness, and the TV preacher tone: "When John Kerry and I are elected, every. single. man in America. WILL HAVE something he can REALLY be proud of."

Hey! Maybe these two geniuses can help that African banker find someone to help him make a multi-million dollar deposit. How about a new hair-growth method. Oh, I know! The secret that millionaires don't want you to know!!

It is time for them to surrender...

Hell -- I could promise to double the size of every man's unit. And I could keep that promise too.

By persuading Congress to redefine an inch as being what is now half an inch.

Edwards blew it, though. Computer animation has already done what he claims Kerry could do. Remember that TV ad?

For an ambulance chaser who enriched himself suing doctors for children born with genetic defects those doctors could not predict, prevent, cure or treat to make unfounded promises about speculative science... is yes... sickening.

Sure we should do the research... Bush is the first President to fund stem Cell research... THE FIRST!

But I ask you how the (D)'s can claim the (R)'s are in the pocket of big business, including the drug companies, when they attempt to stampede any debate by squealing lies advocating for federal tax payer subsidies for drug company research?

Lawyer is pronounced Liar in North Carolina and Whore is pronounced with a (D).

There are so many of us out here who would love to have some miracle cure, the underwear model vp-candidate must have reckoned he would pick up a few of us.

But it's just too much like TV evangelists, without the promise of the Grace of the Almighty for submitting to the fleecing.

If a tenth of those miracles prove possible, they will come to pass whoever is elected. Bush cannot suppress the advance of science, and to claim he is doing so is NUTS.

Have they not lied to you idiots enough or are you just begging for more - if so, then you can count on another 4 years of it if you vote for those mother*******! And stem cells have been proven to work why don't you visit another country where people are INFORMED.
