So very sad, as well as frightening.
Well, Florida, do we need to know anything more? Crist is NOT the man to replace Jeb. Tom Gallagher is looking better and better every day.
That said, people on the political right can overplay their hands every bit as well as people on the political left. Robert Schindler is coming dangerously close to becoming a mirror image of Cindy Sheehan.
Bob Sr. ping...
Did we ever learn who it was that tipped off George Felos, and subsequently the hospice, that a team was on the way to remove Terri from the hospice and take her into protective custody?
read this, it's right on!
No he didn't
THAT is powerful!
Floridians should write letters to editors, and call talk shows to expose Charlie Crist.
A Few of the Facts That Werent Reported:
Terri was never on a ventilator. Her only "life support" was assistance with food and water at mealtimessomething she might have overcome with therapy.
Michael Schiavo and the court denied access to more than forty medical professionals, doctors, and neurologists who believed Terri had not been properly diagnosed.
Terri could recognize her parents and respond to them, attempting to speak.
Terri was so healthy that it took 13 days for her to dieeven without an ounce of food or water.
A Florida death row cell would have been safer for Terri than her hospice room since you cant starve a convicted criminal, or even an animal, according to Florida law.
Terri on the road to recovery before the second stage began.
Crist said as AG he has a "Medicaid Fraud Control Unit".
(FV SAYS: There are 26,000 cases of medicaid fraud that Crist swept under the rug. oooooooo. Get the fraud out? Charlie Crist, you swept it under the rug.)
CRIST: Individuals who need care the most, get it.
FV: Who decides who needs the care the most? Who decides, Charlie? (from townhall debate tonight in real time).
GUN ISSUES: CRIST - protect precious document that is the foundation of this country and I believe in it. (FV: What about TERRI'S rights in the precious document that is the foundation of this country.) Crist: Protect 2nd amendment and first amendment.
This is so unbelievable. I lost a child in a traffic accident so I understand the feeling of losing a child. Had something like this happened to him I would have gone insane. No one involved with his death would have been safe from my rage, not the spouse, doctor, nurses or this judge.
Unfortunately, many of those in the legal profession place man's law above God's law.

Anti-Charlie Crist bttt
The Schiavo case was sad, incredibly so. But it is over. Blaming Charlie Crist is insane. Blaming Jeb, or King, or anyone else is insane. One man had the legal authroity to make the decisions related to Teri's life and that man was her husband. No one else even deserves mention - not the judge, not the politicians. Michael made the dreadful choice, so if you want to blame someone, blame him.
A piece of advice to my friends in FL: If you insist on making your campaigns this year 2 issue battles - Schiavo and Abortion - you are going to lose election after election after election.
If Mr. Schindler insists on being politically active he risks becoming the Cindy Sheehan of the right.
Crist should have the death of Terri on his conscience as long as he lives. But I doubt if he really cares.
I will never forget the image of that young Christian boy stepping forward to bring a cup of water to Terri, and then being harshly arrested by the death squad cops of Florida.
