      So why is John Edwards complaining that being asked about hedge funds and foreclsoures is a personal attack?  And also claiming the questions are being planted?

      •  When? Where? (7+ / 0-)

        Link for your three claims?  Any evidence at all?

        I know Clinton did the third:

        •  no, I live on a reality based planet (0+ / 0-)

          Go to ABC's The Note of today, and look up the section on Edwards, where it states that he refused to answer the questions of a reporter from Nevada public radio regarding Fortress Investments role in foreclosures, and Edwards claimed the questions were being planted.

            so if you have a link, put it up.  If not, why I am sure you know what to do.

              Why would I make something like this up, anyway?  It is easy enough to check!

                I used the "find" function to look for an Edwards mention on the page, but for whatever reason it did not work.

                Now, did you actually listen to the interview?

                Here is what The Note says about the interview:

                Just don't ask Edwards about those foreclosures tied to Fortress Investments: He told a Nevada Public Radio interviewer that such questions amount to a "personal attack." "This, by the way, is not on the issues. This is a personal attack," Edwards said. "These questions are all being planted by somebody. I'm through -- I've said enough about that. What's your next question?"

                Edwards makes that comment approximately 2 minutes and 10 seconds into the interview.  He made the comment after spending almost one and a half minutes answering a question about the hedge funds relationship with Greentree and that company's foreclosure practices in Nevada and New Orleans.

                After he asks the interviewer to move onto a new question, he then discusses the millions of dollars he and Elizabeth have personally spent out of their own pockets on anti-poverty issues.

                So, I think it fair to say that The Blurb from The Note does convey the essence of the interview.
