Taxed to Death:
I don't want him [Edwards] to be president because he advocates redistribution of wealth and he doesn't understand that there are enemies of this country who want to destroy this country and are actively working toward this goal. Further he's willing to further destroy this country's economy on the off-chance that it may lower the global temperature .6 degrees.

It is going to be loads of fun picking on you today. Let's start with this:
"he doesn't understand that there are enemies of this country who want to destroy this country and are actively working toward this goal."
Actually, he [Edwards] understands that all too well. What he also understands is that the misguided policies of the current administration, branded as the "Global War on Terror" have actually made us less safe. Iraq - not making us safer; Abu Gharib - not making us safer. Torture and illegal electronic eavesdropping - well, abandoning our American values never has and never will make us safer.
These are all parts of the so called "Global War on Terror". I'd say that brand has failed and that we need a smarter, more effective policy to deal with the all too real terrorist threat in the world today. You know, the one that has been enhanced by the failed policies of the current administration.
While right-wing talking points dominate the air waves, when it comes to coherent response buttressed by facts and informed opinion the progressive netroots win everytime.
