Former Democratic VP Candidate John Edwards Admits to Affair with Rielle Hunter But Denied being Baby Daddy
Scratch John Edwards off Obama’s short list for VP. BTW Mr. Edwards, which American does a lying cheating dog live in?
John Edwards Admits affair with 44 year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he loved only his wife, Elizabeth and he is not a baby daddy. Sounds an awful lot like Bill Clinton when he said he smoked pot but he didn’t inhale. Looks like the Breck Girl lied when he was a Presidential candidate. So first Edwards was not at the Hollywood hotel, then he claimed there was no affair and now he claims that he is not a baby daddy. The Breck Girl hardly has any credibility.
Edwards: Yes I did have an affair, but I didn’t inhale
In an interview for broadcast tonight on Nightline, Edwards told ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff he did have an affair with 44-year old Rielle Hunter, but said that he loved only his wife, Elizabeth.
“Two years ago I made a very serious mistake,” Edwards said, blaming the prominence of being a vice presidential candidate. “All of which fed a self-focus, an egotism, a narcissism that leads you to believe that you can do whatever you want,” he said.
Edwards made a point of telling Woodruff that his wife’s cancer was in remission when he began the affair with Hunter. [Gee John, that makes it perfectly ok then]
John Edwards … YOU PIG!!! Take a good look what the Democrats almost had a heart beat away from the Presidency if John Kerry had ever won in 2004. John Edwards thinks that some how it lessens the fact that he had his affair when his wife Elizabeth Edwards’ cancer was in remission. Yeah, John that some how makes you less of a cheating liar that you had an affair didn’t have incurable cancer.
Edwards said the affair began during the campaign after she was hired. Hunter traveled with Edwards around the country and to Africa.
Edwards said he told his wife, Elizabeth, and others in his family about the affair in 2006.
“She was mad, she was angry, I think furious would be a good way to describe it,” Edwards said.
Edwards made a point of telling Woodruff that his wife’s cancer was in remission when he began the affair with Hunter. Elizabeth Edwards has since been diagnosed with an incurable form of the disease.
The Breck Girl should have spent more time combing his and trimming his hair than getting trim. Do you feel pretty now?
Patterico’s Pontification: Why Edwards’ Denial About Paternity Doesn’t Pass The Smell Test
CNN: Edwards admits to extramarital affair
Hot Air: ABC News: Edwards admits affair; Update: Enquirer was “95 to 96% accurate,” says Brian Ross; Update: Edwards statement: “I started to believe that I was special”
UPDATE I: John Edwards Statement:
So once again a Democratic politician is a victim of the right wing conspiracy. Or is it a tabloid conspiracy? John Edwards plays his violin and states that being 99% honest is no longer enough. Oh shut up! I hardly think that your wife thinks that you are 99% honest. He started to believe he was special. Started to believe? So which America does a lying cheating dog live in?
In 2006, I made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs. I recognized my mistake and I told my wife that I had a liaison with another woman, and I asked for her forgiveness. Although I was honest in every painful detail with my family, I did not tell the public. When a supermarket tabloid told a version of the story, I used the fact that the story contained many falsities to deny it. But being 99% honest is no longer enough.
So how quick will Democrats throw John Edwards to the curb and he be a no show as a speaker at the Democratic National Convention. Funny, they embraced Bill Clinton.
