Don't Mess with Edwards

This is a message to all Republicans: Don't Mess with John Edwards. Please . . . its getting annoying. First, don't call him unexperienced in foreign policy. I mean really. Look at Bush (the waffle). His foreign policy and national security experiene, prior to being our noble C-i-C, was six horrible years as Governor in which he commanded the Texas National Guard. In Edwards' six distinguished years in the U.S. Senate, two of them as his state's senior Senator, Edwards has served on the Senate Intelligence Committee and put forth bold and daring ideas for reforming the intelligence agencies. Bush flip flops on what kind of intelligence he wants. As we all know, just like the August 6 Presidential Daily Breifing that warned that bin Laden was "determined to strike U.S.", Bush doesn't really even listen to intelligence, even when its reliable. So get off Edwards' back. He has served six good years in the senate, and a lifetime of committment to making peoples' lives better. If only the GOP could say the same for Bush, who led Texas into the toilet during his six years (and Texas Guv is the weakest Governorship in the US, hardly a training ground of President). Its time to stand up to the GOP. We're gonna win this thing.
