John Edwards, What Was He Thinking?

Where Is The Heart?

I have just finished reading an article about Rielle Hunter asking for eleven million dollars from the former presidential candidate, John Edwards. This is not a huge surprise to anyone. Having an affair with a married man is nothing new; people have been doing it since the beginning of time. I am not saying it is right or judging, but a man whose wife is fighting cancer? That is completely heartless on both of their parts. Imagine knowing you are going to die and since your family is in the public eye, this affair will be all over the media. The stress and humiliation must have been just horrific for someone so sick. Ms. Hunter should have really thought about what kind of person would do this. I believe she didn't care because she went through the lies, cover up and watched the down fall of this man she supposing "loved."

Why Have a Child Brought Into This

If she had any dignity or love for a child that she would be a mother to, she would never had become pregnant. Subjecting her daughter to the embarrassment of knowing when she gets older how her birth came about. A woman Ms. Hunter's age knew exactly what she was doing. There have been birth control pills since the early sixties and other means of preventing pregnancy. This child was her "money bucket." Of course he was just as much to blame and should have thought with his head instead of his lust. He was just as responsible for not using preventive measures as well. The child of course is innocent she didn't ask to be born. Somehow I don't think having money will mend the hurt and what she has to face in the future with her life beginnings in the tabloids and other media.

A Man With No Regard

In some aspects we should be happy that we saw just what kind of liar and cold heart this man had before he got anywhere near being president of the United States. As I have said people fall in love and things happen but he should have been by his wife's side through her pain and mental stress of knowing that she would have to leave her children no matter what. I am not a saint, none of us are but the thought of hurting a woman so sick like this is unbelievable. I of course, know nothing personally about Elizabeth Edwards but she lost a child which is the worst thing that can happen to a parent. Then you add the pain and stress of a terminal illness, no one deserves more on top of this.

He Will Pay and Pay

The terrible name calling according to press, that these two people have been spilling recently do not sound like two people hopelessly in love by any means. I can't repeat what he stated about her during his trial for finance fraud too inappropriate. Add to this, her interviews that she is getting big money for and her "tell all" book no one is surprised about. She has been promoting her book and of course it's all about the money. According to many media outlets she will be demanding him to pay her eleven million dollars. Myself I saw this coming, it's not the point of him taking on the responsibility for his daughter, and it’s the point of the greed. I am sure a good amount of child support he should be paying, that’s supposed to be for the welfare of the child. I think I could support a child without an eleven million dollar payoff. She knew what she was doing from the beginning and the hurt and pain she caused his family doesn't seem to keep her up at night. Yes he just as guilty, and unless he is totally heartless, he must have some remorse over what he has done, along with the money he will have to pay that should have been set aside for his children.


Street Talk

Sounds way to normal to me, and that in itself is a major flaw in this kind of thinking. We as Americans have acquired an I want it and I want it now attitude ion everything, including sex. Sad affair.
