Many Bushbots quit supporting the entire Bush clan. Many republicans quit the party. I stay in so I can send surveys back to them telling them what they did and making them pay the postage.
Jeb can never be President. He let an incompetent judge push him around. Judge Greer had a speaking engagement today. During the Q & A the question came up re: why this country treats animals better than people through groups like The Humane Society. Greer's Answer: "Animals don't talk."
His answer shows that he's not playing with a full deck. What about people who don't talk or people who do talk? Judge Greer killed Terri for Michael Schiavo. The Bushes let him do it. You are absolutely right. They couldn't save one woman. When the administration talks about spreading liberty, I think about Terri and how hypocritical it is to discuss spreading liberty when Terri had no civil rights.
Florida: the starvation state and now, the boot camp death state; not just for vacations any more. Terri Schindler Schiavo and Martin Anderson, rest in peace. Both of your deaths were state sponsored.
Martin Anderson (14 years old) was beaten to death by Florida Sheriff Deputies while a nurse watched the 30 minute beating before calling an ambulance.
Terri was murdered and Martin was murdered on Jeb Bush's watch. He can't be president of anything now. They martyred Terri. The local good old boys were more important to the Bushes than Terri was.
Martin died on January 6th and when there's a dead child, no amount of damage control will suffice and Jesse Jackson hasn't arrived yet. Martin's death is going to be huge. There's no excuse for beating a child who couldn't keep up during an exercise period and then let him die so he isn't a witness against them.
That said, I am able to separate that issue from others that I do agree with Bush on, such as the war on terror and taxes. I am terribly unhappy with the border and with spending, and the Schiavo issue added to the discontent. It brought Bush down a great deal in stature, from someone who had a chance to approach Reagan's qualities, down to someone only slightly better than his dad had been. Still a helluva lot better than having a President Kerry, but not near as good as he could have been.
Roberts and Alito proved that it was important to re-elect Bush. Schiavo proved that we don't have a conservative majority even with a GOP one. Keep working for that conservative cause, and don't lose faith in what good people can accomplish.
I think that Bush's support was caused by his continued lying to American children about Santa Claus. He has had five opportunities to tell the truth and still remains in denial.
