Edwards, Arnold, and Weiner have been the topic of conversation for EVERYONE the past few weeks. Whoâ€™s the sleaziest? Whoâ€™s the most despicable? Etc.
I DESPISE John Edwardsâ€¦and not for the reasons most do. What he did to his wife was horrible. Denying his child and saying it belonged to someone else…Disgusting! However, I couldnâ€™t figure out why it was affecting me so much. I was enraged by his behavior. Every time I heard his name my blood boiled! I couldnâ€™t stop thinking about him and was so mad at him. WHY? Sure what he did was awful, but he didnâ€™t do it to me. He didnâ€™t do it to my family member. Why was I letting this man consume MYÂ life.
Then it hit meâ€¦Iâ€™ve always said you canâ€™t hate someone unless you loved them (respected them/put your faith in them) first. If you didnâ€™t care about someone, when they do something to wrong you, you get mad but move onâ€¦write them out of your life.
Was I â€œin loveâ€ with John Edwards? No way. But I was invested with him. He was the first politician I really paid attention to. He was so charming, so nice, so genuine SO IT SEEMED! I liked him. I liked following him. I wanted to vote for him. HE MADE ME WANT TO VOTE! I was passionate about him (and not because he was good looking. I didnâ€™t even look at him like that)â€¦when I found out about the affair, the child, what kind of person he is (claiming he cheated while wife was in remissionâ€¦JERK), I know I wasnâ€™t the one married to him but I felt betrayed. UGHHH HEâ€™S SUCH A DOUCHE! Now Iâ€™m all fired up again. Heâ€™ll get whatâ€™s coming to himâ€¦and I hope itâ€™s jail time.
