Michael Schiavo endorses Kaine
Virginian Pilot ^ | Nov. 2, 2005 | BOB LEWIS

Posted on 11/02/2005 6:04:41 PM PST by republicangel

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Michael Schiavo, who was at the center of a passionate national end-of-life debate when his brain-damaged wife, Terri, died in March, endorsed Democrat Tim Kaine for governor Wednesday.

"I have seen firsthand what can happen when a governor disagrees with a single citizen. In Florida, Gov. Jeb Bush abused the power of his office in an attempt to replace my personal family decisions with his own opinions and political grandstanding," Schiavo wrote a six-paragraph statement distributed by a Democratic political consulting firm in Miami.

Conservatives vilified Schiavo for ordering the removal of the feeding tube that had sustained his wife for 15 years. In the resulting legal and ideological conflict, Congress, Jeb Bush and his brother, President Bush, all sought to have the tube reinserted.

Better yet, why is Schiavo endorsing anyone for VA's governor?

If Michael really wanted to help Kaine, he should have endorsed Kilgore.

We've seen what happens when a man wants out of his obligations and demands his insurance payoff Mike. Wonder how your current girlfriend (wife?) feels about that?

I wouldn't mind seeing Kilgore run an ad on this over the next six days (except in NoVa).

Gov. Jeb Bush abused the power of his office in an attempt to replace my personal family decisions with his own opinions and political grandstanding.

His personal family decision????? I thought he was merely enforcing what he claimed to have been Terri's decision. Hmmmm. If he wants to get more involved in politics, he'd better get his lies straight.

Of what relevance is this guy's opinion? It is truly something to see who the DIMs dig up as spokesman for a candidate.

Maybe he's becoming afraid Republicans might one day stand
together and make him pay for his crime? I sure pray that someday there will be one man enough.

What you said.

This is weird. Why would someone who lives in Florida be "endorsing" a Lefty politician in Virginia? Does Schiavo vote in more than state?

He's the legal Dr. Kevorkian (spelling). For all those who want to LEGALLY murder inconvenient people that can't speak for themselves - this is the candidate for you.

Believe it or not there are people on FR that saw murdering Terri as very acceptable.

"Michael issued the statement because he is interested in getting more involved in the political process," Newton said.

Well, now we know what Mikey boy aspires to. Guess he doesn't like the limelight too much, huh?

What a jack@$$!!

I fear what may happen to unsuspecting Virginians when Mr. Kilgore disagrees with their deeply private family decisions to murder their famly members."

There, I corrected that obvious typo.

Sounds like an endorsement no politician would want. Schiavo probably doesn't help get you a single vote, but can help lose you plenty.

Now what is it the RINOs keep telling us about the right-to-kill being the corner stone of Republican ideology?

Any one who endorses a guy who wants his wife to die after only 15 years as a vegetable is insane.

Schiavomeister: "I have seen firsthand what can happen when a governor disagrees with a single citizen. In Florida, Gov. Jeb Bush abused the power of his office in an attempt to replace my personal family decisions [to kill my estranged wife] with his own opinions and political grandstanding."
