Everyone seems to be ignoring the last 2 sentences of the Fox News story:

Apparently the Democrats have devised a plan to keep this story out of the news: DEMOCRATS PLANT SEXY INTERN TO SEDUCE BUSH - 89 - Breaking News - News - Weekly World News

this story is odd, why was he there to see her at 2 a m ?

is there a police report ?

when I wasted 30 seconds reading a newspaper article, it said there was.

and what if it is true ?

why should I care?

or why should anyone but the parties involved give a damn?

Edwards is human, he may have done a human thing, with a human result.

you can not pick up a history book or so-called 'holy book' that is not full of this stuff



People should make more of an effort to do the right thing themselves.

So you think the media should start investigating the Bush marriage? For the last 7 years I've kept seeing stories from the Enquirer and others of a George/Condi tryst, or that Bush has fallen off the wagon and is drinking again, or that Laura and George are fighting. Which raises another good question-why should anyone in the media talk about this? Both have their private life. It's not going to affect anyone. It's just voyeurism.

the story about the alleged affair with McCain and the staffer wasn't so much about the affair -- indeed, McCain has all but admitted to extra-marital activity with both of his wives, and i don't care at all -- but about the concern that the affair and the access given to this woman, who was a lobbyest, was a direct contradiction of the attempt by the campaign to spin a narrative about McCain being a "maverick" and not being tied to special interests.

the Washington Post ran nearly the exact same story.

I'll bet he's glad he's not running for president right now.

George and Laura Bush to divorce after election because of Condi Rice?

George and Laura Bush to divorce after election because of Condi Rice? - Pravda.Ru

Many US tabloids have been flooded with rumors of George W. Bush’s family misfortunes recently. The latest gossip is about George and Laura Bush to divorce after November elections.

Italy’s La Repubblica newspaper wrote with reference to The National Examiner tabloid that George and Laura Bush were planning a divorce after the presidential election in the USA.

According to the supermarket tabloid, George and Laura Bush hardly ever speak to each other. George feels very unhappy and does not want Laura to leave him. However, the newspaper wrote, Laura is tired of everything; she is determined to live her own life.

The couple still keeps their relationship alive just because they are contractually obliged to stay together during George W. Bush’s presidency; it is not a matter of feelings at all.

They are both certain that they have rendered a huge service to their country. They pretend that their marriage is still alive in spite of the fact that it was buried long ago. The divorce will be kept a secret until the president retires, the newspaper wrote.

The tabloid dwells upon the reasons which could lead to the possible divorce. The newspaper believes that George . W. Bush has been having an affair with US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice. A former employee of the presidential administration told The National Examiner that Laura Bush once spent her night in a hotel to stay away from the White House.

Laura Bush will reportedly be paid $20 million in case she divorces her husband.

It is worthy of note that it was not the first time, when US tabloids wrote about George W. Bush’s affair with Condoleezza Rice. Ms. Rice became the center of tabloid gossip in the USA two years ago in July. Many US newspapers wrote back then that Condi had a love affair with President Bush.

Wayne Madsen, a national security expert, wrote in 2006 that George W. Bush confessed during a session with his psychologist that he was attracted to other women. Bush reportedly named Condoleezza Rice as an object of his fantasies.

Laura Bush soon heard of the rumors. The first lady spent that night in Washington’s May Flower Hotel. Tabloids wrote that Laura Bush had escaped from the White House after an argument with President Bush which happened because of his supposed affair with Condoleezza Rice.

Evil tongues recalled the story of a Freudian slip which happened to Ms. Rice during an official meeting in Washington. Condoleezza Rice, who is always meticulous in the choice of her words, reportedly said the following: "As I was telling my husb—" before abruptly breaking off and correcting herself: "As I was telling President Bush."

Ms. Rice has earned the reputation of the Bush’s family friend. She became close to President Bush mainly because of the fact that she is the only person who finds a common language with Bush to teach him wisdom of foreign politics.

Indeed, unlike her predecessor, Colin Powell, Ms. Rice is in a very close relationship with President Bush. She talks to him on the phone at least once a day.

Mark McKinnon, former media advisor for President Bush, said that it would not be hard for Condoleezza Rice to take a higher position because this woman has unlimited political potential.

“She's a superfecta: a Republican, a woman, an African American and secretary of state," he said. "I don't think there's a hotter star on the Republican political horizon than Condi Rice," McKinnon said.

Wasn't it the "Inquirer" that broke the Gennifer Flowers/Bill Clinton story? That turned out to be true. Also, they got word about Michael J Fox having Parkinson's disease - which also turned out to be true,

Granted, the Inquirer is mostly a rag but this is quite different than the usual "my sister married a two-headed alien" kind of story they usuall run - this involves slandering the name of a U.S. senator and I don't think they'd run the risk of a lawsuit if there wasn't a ring of truth about it.

Personally, I hope it's not true but I wouldn't be surprised if it were.

I don't see those two ever divorcing, even if they were the unhappiest people on the planet. I also don't care one bit about what they do in their private lives.

Yes. When you consider how many "highbrow" news sources have gone tabloid, how fair is it really to pooh pooh the National Enquirer?

^Gee what a shock that Ann chimed in

http://www.nationalenquirer.com/john...elebrity/65226

A NATIONAL ENQUIRER investigation has uncovered John Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter – the mother of his “love child” – has been secretly receiving $15,000 a month as part of an elaborate cover-up orchestrated by the former presidential contender.

The money is being funneled to Hunter by a wealthy colleague who was closely tied to the Edwards’ campaign. This same man is also shoveling cash to Edwards’ pal and former aide Andrew Young – who tried to take the heat off the ex-Senator by claiming he is the father of Rielle’s baby.

And The ENQUIRER is also exclusively revealing that Rielle’s baby is a girl named Frances Quinn Hunter and was born at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

“A super-rich pal – who was closely involved with the campaign finances – is helping John. It’s likely this man doesn’t know all the dirty details of John’s extramarital affair, but is acting out of loyalty and is not asking a lot of questions – only writing the checks,” revealed a source very close to the situation.

As a former, and very vocal, Edwards supporter, I am sick over this. The Enquirer is all lawyered up and articles that have been denied in the past often turn out to be true.

Cheating on your wife when she's terminally ill. That is so very very wrong. Especially when that wife is one of THE greatest women on the planet...

It appears the people who thought Edwards was a slick phony were right, and I was wrong.

I don't know why you or anyone else is sick over this or anything else.

the only thing here that has failed?
, is expectations.


I have no idea what happened between John Edwards and this woman.

I do not believe he loves his dying wife one ioda less for any thing he may have done. How many of you have watched a loved one waste away?

I have.

If Edwards is guilty of anything, he is guilty of being human.

If you curse him, condemn him
you curse yourself, condemn yourself.


Contrary to what many people seem to believe
these peoples' behavior have nothing to do with us or our relationships,
(yes, that is amazing, isn't it)
because this may have happened - has no consequence on whether your partner will be faithful to you or if we should expect our partners to be faithful to us.

We should be faithful. And we should behave in a way that our partners have every opportunity and desire to be faithful to us.

Should any of us end up being human, and doing a "human thing" I hope that thing is less significant than our relationship.

If that "human thing" is more important than your relationship,
than we know how much value you give your relationship
and how much value you give a fuck.

I guess the goddamned batman isn't human then. Cause the goddamned batman wouldn't cheat on his terminally ill wife. He would grapple hook the hell out of that illness.

He might not love his dying wife one iota less- but it could appear that he loves his appendage, and himself, more. Sure he's human, but so was Newt Gingrich when he served divorce papers on his wife when she lay dying of cancer.. I guess.

Some people value fidelity, doesn't make them wrong for doing so. Especially fidelity when your spouse is terminally ill. Somehow that just doesn't seem like it's just "a fuck". Especially when you father a child-if indeed he has.

I'm not sick over it but that doesn't mean I can't be disappointed in some way either. I'm disappointed but at the same time I'm not-and not surprised. Keep expectations low and you're never surprised. But at the same time I don't think it's too high of an expectation to expect a husband of a dying woman to keep it in his pants (or the wife of a dying man).

How fucked up are you people if you are questioning whether or not it is appropriate to 'be disappointed' with a man that (allegedly) had an affair and fathered a child while his wife struggled with a terminal illness?
