Save Terri, Jeb! It's your duty to protect the lives of the citizens of your state!

He's not going to do it. He'll say the same thing his brother said. This is about making the courts look as bad as possible. (which isn't really a hard thing to do)

They are debating this in the Senate -- is it possible they will have voted by the time of this news conference?

My fervent, frightened prayer is that Jeb will take action and save Terri, thereby taking a stand, showing that there is at least one elected official who has the courage to choose life instead of death.

My fear is it will be a "deeply disappointed, but we did all that we could" kind of speech. Please, Governor, do the right thing. Show us that we are a people of hope, a people that will always affirm that life is preferable to death, that those who view life as a gift to be valued and cherished will win out over those who would extinguish it with a shroud of darkness and evil.

If he doesn't have anthing substantive to say then he should avoid a big press statement or it will be seen as totally political.

He can still make them look bad and also do something for the poor woman.

Terri may end up sacrificing her life for this country as did Mary Jo Kopechne in 1969

I think Jeb Bush is a sincere person, so I don't think he's grandstanding. This is why I am very curious to hear what he has to say at 3pm about the Schiavo case. I don't see the point of calling a press conference to say, "I can do nothing." Anybody know what's up?

If all the negative facts I've heard in the case are true, all Jeb should do is state one by one all the things being overlooked and make the Judges in Florida look like the hacks they are.
Also this will deservedly slash the Democrat party followers.
Keep in mind, that even some Democrat voters can't stomach this kind of murder.

"I think Jeb Bush is a sincere person"

So do I, but he is also a politician. Like it or not, politicians are there to do the bidding of their consitutuents.

Heheheheh. Hadn't heard it put quite that succinctly. And Jeb doesn't have the sole role as Pilate.

Jeb could at least send in a HAZMAT team with the National Guard. Stick an oxygen mask on her and whisk her out of that Hospice (whose Board member just happens to be George Felos)

Janet Reno went & snatched Elian - he was not a criminal either.

If Jeb does nothing - he is off my list.

I think we may one day thank and realize that Terry has given her time on earth as a lightning rod to further the legal debate over life and death...

The Lefties, Libs and fake Civil Liberty Activists and Lawyers will pay big time for these immoral actions that they so sadly embrace....

Save the Whales and Caribou! Protect the right to life of ungodly criminals.....but partake in the killing of the unprotected and innocent....

Simply sickining....

Me too!

I want Terri hospitalized, re-hydrated and feed and in the custody of her parents - away from this evil estranged husband.

What list would that be? Does he know it? Because, you know, it could make a difference. For instance, if I knew I was going to be off your list, I'd want to know about it.

Jeb is not running in 2008 and if he did, I highly doubt that the American people would be open to a 3rd President Bush in such quick order.

Having a Bush for President on the ballot in 5 of 6 elections does not seem like something that Americans will be excited about, nor be supportive of.

Who do we have on site down there? I just had a brainstorm. We need to get some fliers made up and destributed to the crowd outside that hospice. Fliers about the March For Justice II. Those people are mad enough to help us with the march.

Let's focus on Terri.

There's been a Bush or a Dole on the Republican ticket in every Presidential election since 1976.

Last night I heard they were down to needing one vote so I am thinking the way that RAT snarled that it will be unconstitutional they just might have the votes. At least I am praying they have the votes to pass this bill that declares in a dispute with no signed document you cannot murder someone (my words)!

When on Fox they said the Governor was on his way, did they mean to the hospice or just to give his press conference/statement?

I think Jeb is going to run in 2008 and he needs to do something to stop this ghastly execution happening in his state. If Terri dies, that could cost him 2-4% of the conservative vote as people just decide to stay home and not vote for anyone. That translates into 1-2% of the popular vote and that could cost him the election in 2008. I'm afraid Jeb never took this Schiavo issue seriously enough and didn't push hard enough for a solution that saves her.
