RUSH: This is an AP story: ‘Two weeks after a devastating revelation sent her husband into political exile, Elizabeth Edwards isn’t getting the steady sympathy usually afforded to a woman scorned. Instead, she’s faced criticism from dedicated Democrats who think she was too willing to keep the affair a secret to help John Edwards’ political ambitions, as well as her own. At a time when she was expected to hold a prominent role in pushing an agenda of improved health care for Americans, she stands silent. While fellow Democrats converge in Denver to nominate Barack Obama for president, Edwards remains in seclusion in North Carolina. … ‘I think she’s complicit,’ said Brad Crone, a Raleigh-based Democratic consultant. ‘Obviously, she knew. While she’s the victim, she clearly didn’t stand in the way of the cover-up.”
My friends, this is quite devastating, and it’s striking to see the difference in which Hillary Clinton was treated and the way Elizabeth Edwards is being treated. Why isn’t she being afforded, at minimum, the same pass that Hillary was? Reason is very simple: Liberals are power hungry. Bill Clinton was president. They wanted to keep their power. Edwards ran; he lost. He’s expendable, therefore so is his wife. See, Hillary was not only complacent. To show you the difference in fairness here of the coverage of these two women, Hillary was not only complacent. She led the effort to cover up for her husband. She led the effort to smear the women that her husband had abused, and she attacked away at will. Elizabeth Edwards never did any of this. She just stood silent, and now Democrats are mad at her for helping facilitate the affair. So some of the same people who admire Hillary for her cunning back then and support her for president now, are trashing Elizabeth Edwards. You gotta love this. You couldn’t write this script.
Do you know the Democrats even had to put the Pledge of Allegiance on television screens inside the convention so that delegates could read the words? ‘I pledge allegiance to the… Oh, yeah! Flag.’ They actually put on teleprompters and screens the Pledge of Allegiance, the text, so the delegates could read it. People have to understand the liberal mind. I, of course, do, ladies and gentlemen. I understand it as well as anybody who is not a liberal can. The liberal mind does not work like the mind of a regular person. Their obsession with power and control is what drives them at all times. Look at the cities they run.
Look at New York. Look at San Francisco. Look at all the cities liberals run with unchecked power and look at all of the controls on people’s behavior that there are in those cities. Look at their support for Obama. There is no sane movement in a sane environment that would back a man with his credentials such as they are for the highest office in the land. He’s a radical leftist. He hasn’t accomplished a thing, but through him they believe they can gain back the White House and impose (with a Democrat Congress) an agenda of massive spending, massive taxation, and massive control of the populace. Hell, folks, if they thought Daffy Duck could win the Democrat nomination, they’d nominate him.
