St. Petersburg Times ^ | March 11, 2007 | Adam C. Smith

TAMPA -- He's campaigning hard for support from Republican social conservatives, but presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Saturday he disagreed with the government's intervention in the Terri Schiavo case.

"I think it's probably best to leave these kinds of matters in the hands of the courts," Romney said in a television interview airing today.

There is no right to life in the Federal Constitution.....

So, make your larger point from that brute fact.

Romney and Bush are the poster boys for weak executives who are so brainwashed by the judicial supremacist myth that they will ignore their oath to uphold the constitution and let out-of-control judges destroy our most basic societal standards and even the very right to live of citizens.

I wish I has a dime for every time you wrote "judicial supremacist."

How about you give two examples of each man doing this in what you consider to be the WRONG way and enlighten us all as to the action they SHOULD have taken.

WOW, emotional, and irrational, feeding tubes are a type of life support. Too bad you can't hear past the echo chamber in here.

It's one of those unenumerated rights. The founders obviously thought nobody could be stupid enough to need it spelled out in the Constitution.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

Let me clarify a bit more. It was a state's rights issue, not for the federales.

Forget the clarifications and explanations, my Freeper friend, the cat's out of the bag. All we can do now is hunker down and wait till the storm blows over.

I suppose baby bottles and spoon feeding for paraplegics is "life support", too?

Roe V Wade is a states rights issue. Keilo was a states rights, gun restrictions are states rights. Prayer IMHO does not need to be in the schools. Elian had every right to be weith his father, no matter how much I disagree and hate Castro.

What if the CONGRESS told you that you should end the life of your child?

Rubbish.

Is that what you call the "rights" of the parents of Terri Schiavo whose daughter was starved and dehydrated in front of them?

" I thought you all were Conservatives, seems like those of you that are criticizing are selective when it comes to when you support small government...."

It is beyond me to understand how this is a "smaller government" issue. Moral absolutes have to come first; allowing that woman's estranged husband to kill her for the money is certainly not small government, it's illegitimate government
