The breathtaking audacity of John Edwards; Update: “Egocentric and narcissistic”

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 8, 2008 05:27 PM

There will be a lot of sifting through Silky Pony’s public statements and family campaign photo-ops in the quest to find out when exactly the Edwards family knew about the Rielle Hunter affair (before, during, or after Elizabeth fell ill with cancer?) — and what it says about the failed candidate and erstwhile nutroots Democrat darling.

This has already been thrown back in Silky’s face:

“…I think every single candidate for president, Republican and Democratic have lives, personal lives, that indicate something about what kind of human being they are. And I think it is a fair evaluation for America to engage in to look at what kind of human beings each of us are, and what kind of president we’d make.”

And bloggers are taking a second look at Edwards’ very splashy People magazine photos spotlighting the renewal of his wedding vows with Elizabeth in June 2007–a stunt that scored major gushing from the lib media.

Was this staged to throw off questions about his fidelity? Did the family actually go along with such a ploy? Ugh.

Another one:

I think this President has shown a remarkable disrespect for his office, for the moral dimensions of leadership, for his friends, for his wife, for his precious daughter. It is breathtaking to me the level to which that disrespect has risen.

Breathtaking. Yeah.


Update: Via Allah, here’s the Edwards mea culpa. A little late for humility, isn’t it?

It is inadequate to say to the people who believed in me that I am sorry, as it is inadequate to say to the people who love me that I am sorry. In the course of several campaigns, I started to believe that I was special and became increasingly egocentric and narcissistic. If you want to beat me up — feel free. You cannot beat me up more than I have already beaten up myself. I have been stripped bare and will now work with everything I have to help my family and others who need my help.

I have given a complete interview on this matter and having done so, will have nothing more to say.
